Ladies and germs!
Welcome to NG's 2010 hip hop competition! We've got some serious talent on this site and now it's time for some organized battling of the giants. The contest will be taking place March 29 to April 4 with several events running throughout the week. Right now you can have a read through the events to prepare! In each event you will be given something on the first day, like a theme or a sound to start the song off with. This is so you cannot start working on the song until the first day of the contest! The only one that you can get started on pronto is the Battle for Newgrounds. At the end of the contest all winning submissions will be showcased in a flash submission. So check out the contests below, think about which ones you're interested in entering, and keep checking this forum for new info!
MCs to sign up for the Knock out
Crews to sign up for the Battle for Newgrounds
Three Judges Per Event - PM if you're interested
Producers will be given a sample package and must construct a song from it within a week.
NG Sample Battle
Producers can dig the vast crates of NG tunes and sample anything they like. A drumbeat might be supplied, but other than that Everything has to come from NG!
The Copyright Free Battle
Producers must submit a song with NO samples. NO SAMPLES YO! Samplers will be shot! I was thinking of allowing only sampled VSTs only they are declared?
Producers and MC teams will be given the theme for a song and the first and last lines. Working together they must construct a piece of hip hop gold!
Using NG beats a round robin of MCs will be set up. Each day several MCs will battle over NG tracks in a knockout competition. The winner moves on, the loser whimpers in defeat. The first MC will record 16 bars and then the second MC will be given a chance to respond with their own 16 bars. In the finals MCs will each get to rap twice on each beat, allowing for more devastating shenanigans. MCs who want to participate need to sign up now!
Battle for Newgrounds
Newgrounds has several hip hop crews. It's time to drop the formality and see who really holds the nuts of this website. All groups may enter only one submission, and this song should serve as an anthem for the crew. Additional points will be given for successful collaboration with all members of the crew. Start working on this track now! Also, please sign the crew in this thread. I, to begin, sign KOA up for the Battle for Newgrounds.
Submit your hip hop related art! Graffiti is more than welcome!
Anyone interested in donating some prizes please let me know. I for one will donate an album or something like that. Post links to this thread in your news post, message friends and get them to come check out this thread, etc. Spread the good word, this comp will be sick!
