In the 90’s,Teddy Riley was the king of swing – new jack swing, that is. The term was coined by journalist Barry Michael Cooper to describe the emerging hybrid of R&B and hip-hop that was created in part by producers like Riley. 25 years later, Riley is still influencing music. He’s currently working with Blazetrak.com to find new musical talent. From now through December 31, songwriters can submit their work through the site and receive a personal video response from Riley himself.
