Okay so I heard back from Tom Fulp. He said he's diggin the new name, will match the prizes from last year, and still hasn't heard back from Big Red.

I'm going to give it a week and if I don't hear anything I will begin prep work for this competition. I'll be making a new thread for BattleGrounds, and it will contain rules and guidelines for emcees and producers. Shit's about to get surryus.

PRODUCERS- SEND ME YOUR BATTLE BEATS AND I WILL MAKE YOU FAMOUS.

I really hope the NG hip hop scene gets more active here. This website is perfect for musicians in a lot of ways, and it's a shame that there's so little activity.

I know I've been talking about battle comps lately (btw, please upvote THIS on reddit, lol), but that's because nobody else is talking about anything up here.

We need to all work together to promote and help each other get better, and get Newgrounds poppin' again!

I agree, partially. The vote system is horrendously flawed (what with the zero bombings), which leads to barely any new audiences. So only the people who already know you can find you, meanwhile all the same cats get the top chart spots.

I do like the portal system though, and will continue to use it regardless. It's a really cool melting pot of artists, and generally everyone is very supportive and willing to help others improve (some exception obviously, as exemplified above...)

Yo. New MC here.

I only started recently, but I'm getting in to it pretty quickly. Very much still searching for my flow and rap voice, but I got my first audio submission posted just now. Tell me what you think, what I should try to improve on etc.
(And yeah, I made the beat myself for my first submission, which is why it sucks. I won't be producing many of own beats in the future. lol)

Coo', will do homie.

NG looks like it has a great hip hop community, with a lot of fun collab opportunities and stuff. I'm really interested in seeing the Battlegrounds competition thing too.

Oh shit Rampant vs the new guy!

Nogginmen instigated the battle, and usually the emcee who challenges is the one who goes first. I'll flip a coin. Heads-Rampant goes first, tails- Shady goes first.

Okay it's Tails.

Alright so Shady picks a beat (with 4 verses, 16 bars each), and spits a 16 bar verse dissing Rampant. Then Rampant fires back with a 16, and so on until each emcee has 2 verses. Then it gets posted up here and goes to judging for about a week, and then you guys are famous battle rappers and get all the money and women!

BTW- our new track is on fire right now for some reason, which is awesome! I never had a song get over 2,000 listens in a 24 hour period, and it looks like it might happen since this was only at like 200 yesterday.

Check it out and leave some feedback!

Alright, I'm trying to decide on a beat right now... So I record 8 bars and then pass the mp3 for his next 8, right? And that adds up to 16 bars each with 8 per verse? Aight, coo'

Okay, finished my first verse and PM'd it to ya Rampant.

I was looking through all of the 2012 Clabtrap submissions and all I gotta say is: Daymn.
I hope the new competitions come around soon. Any estimate on that?

It might be too late, but generally, you're supposed to record 16 bars, not 8.

It doesn't really matter though since your '8 bar per verse, 4 verses' method still gives you each 32 bars. its a different approach, but I'm sure Rampant can work with it.
