Erykah Badu has launched a remix contest as part of the promotions surrounding her fourth album, "New Amerykah."

The contest, entitled "Real Thang," allows DJs, producers and musicians to download and remix an acappella version of her buzz track "Real Thang," which does not appear on "New Amerykah," released Stateside on Feb. 26 through Universal.

The first prize winner will receive a Stanton DJ package, professional KRK speakers and a 1200Squad.com membership. The remix will be blasted out to all of the 1200Squad radio, mix show and mixtape DJ's and the song will appear on both the Cornerstone and Suite 903 mixtapes. The winner's mix will also appear on the websites of Badu, Okayplayer.com and Fusicology.
