Snoop Dogg and Norton Announce ‘Hack is Wack’ Video Contest To Raise Cybercrime Awareness

Think you can bust out some silly fresh rhymes on the subjects of hacking, identity theft and computer viruses?

In a somewhat untraditional partnership, Snoop Dogg and Symantec’s Norton want you to show off your lyrical skills on the subject of cybercrime and enter the “Hack is Wack” cybercrime rap contest.Snoop Dogg and Norton

The contest, which runs through Sept. 30, 2010, asks participants to create and upload a two-minute rap video at www.HackIsWack.com.

Snoop is going make the initial call for entries through his Facebook account, Twitter and YouTube page.

If you have the skills and bust out the phattest rap, you’ll receive round trip airfare for two to Los Angeles along with two days and two nights hotel stay to meet with Snoop’s management and learn more about his business. You’ll also get two tickets to a Snoop Dogg concert and a new laptop pimped out with Norton Internet Security 2011.

The winner, to be announced on Oct. 20, 2010, will be selected based on overall creativity, rapping and performing skills, and delivery of a compelling anti-cybercrime message.

Could the SEO Rapper maybe make a career change over to the Cybercrime rapper? He does have some mad skills and can rap about technology related subjects. I’m a big fan of his work and I’m hoping he enters the HackIsWack contest!

If you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #SnoopNorton to find and mark tweets about the contest. The contest begins Sept. 1 and ends Sept. 30. Good luck, Yo!
