Barring a return from Big Red, I will be hosting the 2013 Clabtrap Hip Hop Competition here on Newgrounds. The preliminary festivities will begin in the coming months, and the competition will start around April or May.
In about a month, I will start enlisting NG hip hop producers to create beats (consisting of four 16 bar verses, pm me for more details) for the battle comp, and shortly after I will start recruiting emcees and posting their hype tracks. Clabtrap will hold contests for both producers and emcees, btw, and this competition is going to be a great platform for you to gain exposure and have your work appreciated. Any producers who want to get an early start on making battle beats, feel free to do so.
I will be contacting Tom Fulp regarding the prizes that will be given away, and I'll let you guys know what's up when I hear what we have to offer.
If Big Red comes back and decides he wants to take over, the reins will be handed to him.
Feel free to ask questions or give suggestions in this thread.
