lol thank you for drawing attention to this. it's funny how the verses just keep getting deeper and deeper, like they're passing a crack pipe back and forth and the world is moving in slow motion.

Yeah I'm not gonna f with my voice in any way this time around. Everything's gotta be crystal clear 'cause Big Red doesn't want lyric sheets in the comments anymore. Makes sense.

Lol I just wrote 16 bars about Glitch and BN behind their track, but I didn't record.
I hope I move on in the competition.

I may have just missed it, but when is the deadline for the sample battle?

Response to Newgrounds Hip Hop Competition 2011 2011-03-17 19:28:24


Apri 4th, although it might just be extended two weeks because due to the MC Knock Out taking a bit longer than expected.

Idea of the day:

When this round is over I'm going to hijack all of your frontpage news posts. We'll all post the 8 battles and command people to review. If enough people post it that will get us attention :) But, don't do it until I give you the text to copy and paste cause you can only do a front page-r once every two weeks.

Also, I've extended the deadline for all comps to April 20th. That should give people plenty of time to get some good things done. That's it for extensions though, MC Knock Out should be near completion then and we'll wrap everything up together.

No problem buddy, I believe in you. I like your style man, I find it interesting.

Good luck man, Ill be rooting for you. but to be fair, if the person you are facing owns you, I will tell you; But I am going to just say that it wont come to that, you'll do just fine man.
Spit fire.

Haha, I appreciate all honesty, I'd tell you the absolute truth if I feel like you lost, I already finished my 16 bars and gave it to Glitch though so chances are he'll take a day or two and destroy my whole verse.

A Big Red Question Brought to You by Big Red

Should I let knocked out MC's vote? I initially did not want to, but from the reviews MC's have been leaving I'm feeling like it'd be legit. I would still expect a PM to register theusername to vote. How does that sound to the remaining MC's?

I agree with this, I'd really like to be able to vote for future rounds if Glitch knocks me out!

(I'm replying too much, too fast.)

Not legit. They'd vote against those who knocked them out. Not rationally, but emotionally. It would be a bad idea. I remember specific examples of MC's teaming with one another because they believed they were unfairly knocked-out.

I'd feel if MC's not competing from last year, like MCcrispy, R-avenger, 8trackdubs, or Exceptid, decide to judge, that would be fair. However, those who compete this year would have a bias against those who defeated them in prior rounds.

Response to Newgrounds Hip Hop Competition 2011 2011-03-18 03:24:56


Yup, that's exactly why I didn't want to in the first place. But!! What if knocked out MC's could vote on battles EXCEPT for any one involving the MC that knocked them out?

Wouldn't it make more sense to vote FOR the MC that knocked them out, so that MC went all the way to the finals and won it all, and then YOU wouldn't look so terrible for losing to him?

I don't know.. seems like the more rational thing to do.

That would make sense. If they wanted their victor to get knocked out they'd try and put through the best players anyway.
