The monthly contest designed for hip hop producers and emcees took place Thursday, November 17th at the legendary Patchwerk Recording Studios. 12 emcees signed up and only a few were able to complete the task of spitting 32 bars within the 15 minute time frame. The winner of our producer portion Kangaroo809 was the selected winner of the month beating out 12 other producers for the monthly title. This is actually Kangaroo's second time winning this year. Each emcee took a different approach and delivered heat. We want you to check out the verses and let us know who was the best out of the group. Simply leave comments below.
Finally a contest for emcees who's only crime is they can paint pictures effortlessly. The disclaimer I give every artist who comes in for our monthly contest conducted every last Thursday of the month is come correct. You are given 15 minutes to werk on thirty two bars with a professional engineer in a real session. Real session meaning you can punch in, stack your vocals, insert ad libs, and more. Whatever you gotta do to make your 32 bars legit is what we are focused on.
The beauty in being an artist is that there are no restrictions to what you create—barring contracts. From subject matter to cover art, you are free to develop whatever your creativity desires. Even our First Amendment alludes to the freedom of speech however according to Wikipedia there are some exceptions "including the Miller test for obscenity, child pornography laws, speech that incites imminent lawless action, [...slander] and regulation of commercial speech such as advertising." With a 20+ year history of profanity and raw obscenities in hip-hop culture, as an artist you rarely have to consider your content being an exception to your political right of free expression—until now.
