Nghh Comp - Mc Knock Out Mar. 29th, 2010 @ 02:01 AM Reply

This here be the official thread of the NG Hip Hop Competition - MC Knock Out!!

Rules:

For each match the two MC's will be supplied with a beat from NG, selected by yours truly (Big Red/tingtonger). One participant will be randomly selected to go first. They are then responsible for writing the first 16 bars. The MC will be given 24 hours to write and record the 16 bars and should then send me a .wav a cappella file. This can be compressed, EQ'd, whatever. I'm not doing any editing of your vocals, just plopping them in and making sure the volume is ok. This track will then be emailed to the second MC, who will write a 16 bar response in the next 24 hours. Like before, when recorded email the a cappella file to me. Next, the first MC has the option of responding with 8 bars. 24 hours will be given for the response. Then, the whole thing will be edited together and submitted as one file to the Newgrounds audio portal for judging. The winner will move on and the loser will eat a big fat one! So:

Big Red selects a beat for the match and randomly picks an MC to go first
MC 1: 24 hours to record 16 bars then email a cappella
MC2: 24 hours to record a 16 bar response then email a cappella
MC1: 24 hours to record a 8 bar response then email a cappella
Big Red edits and submits audio file and judging occurs!!

Please email your a cappella to tingtonger [at] gmail [dot] com. You can use an online hosting service such as www.mediafire.com if the attachments are to big to send. Even if you're not the first MC make sure you line the beginning of the song up with the beginning of your wav so it's easy for me to match the a cappella back up with the beat. Silence at the beginning is cool.

It's a knock out, so when you lose you are done! The first round match ups are posted (selected randomly using http://www.random.org/). Round one will have 5 winners. Winners will be matched up with other winners until there is only one left!

If you have any questions please post them here or send me a PM. Judging details will be announced later (I only have so much time to type :P), but don't worry they will be transparent, honest, and fair.

Also, to the producers of beats I selected, I hope you're cool with me using the tracks, and thanks for putting them up! I'll be crediting you wherever they are used.

I think that about sums it up. I hope I haven't made a ridiculous amounts of mistakes in this post... It's 2:02am and I'm downtown Montreal in a cafe on a Sunday night/Monday morning, haha. Here's the match ups!!

Late entries will be docked points unless you tell me in advance why it's going to be late and it's a legit excuse (see: exams, jobs, etc...).

Reminder, my email is tingtonger [at] gmail [dot] com

If MC's still want to jointhe comp post here. It's too late to get in, but if someone drops out you can take their place.

...annnnd... Before I go to sleep...

It's a battle. Rap about whatever you like, but keep in mind your opponent. Research them a bit so your rap is relevant to them. Search for their name in the audio portal through the the link below. Listen to their songs, check out their profile, cyber stalk them a bit to get some material!

Cool, it's not too late and I'll get you in! I realize Nimbus can't record until Friday, and for legit things like that he won't be penalized. Depending whether he wins and what not he can possibly record more than one round on Friday too.

I've got two submissions already! Get 'em in as fast as you can!

Ok I'm on a really tight schedule today so I was wondering what time am I supposed to do my verse on that beat? 2:18?

I can only record for the next 2 hours so I want to have my verse recorded ahead of time so I can just mess with EQ and put it in the track that R-Avenger sent and send it right back

I sent you a PM, R-Avenger has recorded his verse already and it's in your hands. Confirm that you've received it please!

Sick man! I'm going to get the rest of the competition up late tonight. I'm also going to make a post in the art forum. Once everything is up I'll PM you with a neat list of links: where to look for everything. Thanks!

Yo, both gotta chill... I think what's going on is that they broke it into a few rounds. As you can see, more people [such as Nimbus for instance] are missing from the list as well. I suspect that you guys will probably be put up after this round 1... you'll be round 1 B or something I suppose. But whatever is going on, this can be sorted out. So don't start panicking people, eazy~

=Real Over Fake=

As some people on this site know that I don't like to start hate, let me say this. I am actually quite calm, I'm just wondering if its a misunderstanding, because it will ease off my nerves. I know that tingtonger is tired as hell, so that will probably be why. As I said, no hate.

It stinks, but it shouldn't be a huge problem. He was upfront about it and I think it's worth the wait to include more people.

Don't worry, all of the other comps are still happening, I will post them tonight!

You also don't have to sign up for them. The only reason I had sign ups for the MC Knock Out was because I had to arrange the matches, pick the beats, etc. The other ones I'm going to post the details and then if you want to enter you can merely email me a submission.

So, if you don't want to do the knock out I would say don't, and save your energy for the time trials which will be posted tonight.

I'll probably send it to you in a PM. I'm just waiting for your opponent to send me the file, then I'll send it right over. Hopefully soon!

KEEP THE SILENCE AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR A CAPPELLA TRACK!!!!!

It takes me two seconds to slide the file in if you keep the silence and the beginning of the silence lines up with the beginning of the track. If you don't it's a pain in the butt for me to match it to the beat. Please do this from now on.
