Ever since the internet got invented by Al Gore, MCs have been battling online with each other, only it’s been restricted to message boards, interviews, and corny shots in interviews. Now MCs can go head-to-head in this exclusive online battle, hosted by hosting god Poison Pen, where 16 MCs will be chosen from the entrants to compete in a four-round battle for internets supremacy.
To enter, please send a freestyle to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note, there will be a different beat chosen for each battle round, as well as a new opponent. Therefore, you must be able to submit your track with a relatively quick turnaround. Deadlines will be posted once the field has been chosen.
Each round will be posted on Monday morning and fans can vote all week. The winners for each round will be announced Friday afternoon, and the advancing MCs will have the weekend to record their track for the next round, which will be posted Monday morning.
An MC must have at least two of the possible three votes to advance to the next round. The fans get a vote, 730, editor-in-chief of HipHopGame, gets a vote, and of course the big homie Poison Pen gets a vote.
The winning MC will receive:
A complimentary online marketing campaign from Diamond Media 360
Beat from multi-platinum producer Domingo
