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