Thanks man, I appreciate that. I definitely had too much on the go this time around too, haha. What a crazy year.

I spent my summer starting a programming business. That's doing well, I've been making websites and mobile apps for people. Once September hit though things went crazy. I'm in my last year of a computer science degree, and I also found myself an owner of a small art gallery in Edmonton. We put on wine and cheese art shows, concerts, private parties, etc. We actually throw a good number of hip hop shows. They got a couple shots of it in this music video. 3:50ish is good. That place with the white walls and paintings is my new home.

I still have lots of Clabtrap plans. It's good that other people are getting things rolling too. We've got a good community of artists up here and everyone has to keep on building, keep on battling.

Can I throw a show at your art gallery? Cut me a door deal and, I can help provide you with some wine to sell. Lets put on like an Alberta vs BC rap show as well if we can. IMO do a live clabtrap while your at it. :D

I've done two live gallery shows on at 437 Hastings, and then on 882 E. Hastings I did a show for 18 months straight I hosted. I love private functions :D

NEW SONG!
Axtekk produced it and performed the 1st verse.

My homie Ax sent me a draft of this and asked me to lay down a verse. So I decided to go super hard with it. I spit probably my gangster-est bars ever, then commandeered the final 3 minutes to verbally abuse Mickey Mao for being a supreme dickhead troll stalker for 2 weeks in December (and various other times, because I'm probably the easiest troll bait on Newgrounds haha).

BUT YO... This track is rugged and raw Bruh Bruhs. So much so, that Axtekk purposely misspelled the title and we both used our drafts as our final vocals. My gear went haywire on me when all I had was a reference draft recorded for this, and Ax planned to re-record his verse.

...Until he said Naw. "Imma drop this song on dey asses and all y'all kiss the ring bitches". Then I was all like "YEAH FUCK DAT WE GANGSTAS WE GON' ROLL WITH IT AND DROP THIS MUTHAFUCKA LIKE GANGSTAS SHOULD DO."

In Closing- we both wanted a more polished final version, but what can ya do? I'll be getting my new (and better) setup in a few weeks and I'm writing lyrics for Kill Teqneek in the meantime. I still fuckin' looove my verse on this song though, so give it a damn whil. Plus I spent the last 2.5 minutes dissing Mickey Mao with touched-up throwaway bars from this one, so there's that too.

Sky apparently changed his vote.
Publicly.
And the voting is still open...

This shit is tied and we need as many judges as possible! So listen carefully, explain your reasoning, and be unbiased!

Oh, and listen to that track I linked in the above comment too! I went fuckin' bonkers on this shit!!! .
... although I had to use my reference draft vox as the final product (on account of my gear crapping out on me at the last minute)

AND I spent the last 3 minutes dissing Mickey Mao after he went on a weeks-long, weird vendetta against me!

tl/dr: Sky changed his vote, click to hear me go crazy on an Ax beat, and be sure you listen to the battle and vote!

Questionable Motive Productions (a skateboarding channel based out in the UK) used my Clabtrap Hype Track in their "2013 Retrospective" video! I consider this the official music video, check it out...

http://youtube.com/watch?v=mC_AtujVHvQ

This is the 2nd time someone has used my hype track in a video! Gotta thank Clabtrap because without this tournament, "Time" would cease to exist...

Not really Clabtrap related but I figure the people in this thread would be the ones to ask... Does anyone have a copy of Hazardous Materials? Gasmasq's Bandcamp page is down and I'm curious to give it a listen. Annoyingly enough the cached page suggests that the site was still functional less than a month ago.


If I offer to help you in a post, PM me to get it. I often forget to revisit threads.

Since there was no NGHH NGSample battle last year will there be one this year? I've greatly improved the quality of my beats since I put this out.

It was a close battle, won by two votes. Thanks for the dope battle guys. I have some Newgrounds store credit for Teqneek and Eye-Cue. Tell me if it doesn't show up, I'll message Tom.

My sincere apologies for the fizzling out of this years competition. My life has been crazy this last little while, with things good and bad. I'm on my own little adventures up here.

I'm going to disappear for a bit. I still have plans for bigger and better Clabtrap stuff, but for the time being it just has to wait. Godspeed fellas, keep doing your thing!

Thanks to everyone involved in the tournament!

And no I haven't received anything regarding NG credit. Don't get me wrong, I'm gonna buy all kinds of store shit, but what happened to the SoundCloud Pro account and the Cash? Is that why you never answered us when we kept asking you what the prizes would be?

Lol, gimme my skrilla homie!

Here's some shit for your ears:

Yo Red, lemme grip one of those Clabtrap shirts!

Yo Carefoot, lemme grip those Kill Teqneek wristbands you been promising for months!

And Red, are you still gonna release those vids for the final and Vinstigator / Pachiilis' battle? Would be really cool to see people's reactions to our bars.
