Great! I’m searching for the contest rules. Are samples allowed this time?

Last year the rules stated no samples but they confirmed for us that we could use samples. All my beats I submitted were sample based and all the ones I used in the battle itself were sample based.

Trying to decide which one I wanna submit for…

hmnnn, good to know @shogun…I was confused cause every single year there are maaaaaad sample based producers in these battles but I didn’t know if they up and changed the rules this time around…

Reply

Jayson Feller April 2, 2010 at 2:17 pm

Yeah that is good, but I wonder why they would say no sampling and then allow it….maybe because it’s eventually broadcast on BET or whatever….

RTC Shogun April 2, 2010 at 4:35 pm

It definitely has to do with the tv aspect of things…I brought a couple cameras for the event and had to sign some crazy waivers…I still posted the vids on Vimeo. I still have to actually edit and upload the second rounds from last year.

And the locations change every year just like the DMC regionals…

Fuck the boolsheet. Where’s Chicago??????

The finals will take place in chicago this year

Mike April 2, 2010 at 3:10 pm

Chicago for the Finals? Nice Ill have to check that out.. is there a set location for the Finals?

Reply

Semantik April 2, 2010 at 3:32 pm

Yeah, the venue is Metro. I’ve updated the post with details.

Just Glaze April 2, 2010 at 6:45 pm

so what happens if you’re a producer based in the southeast? ex. Atlanta?

Reply

kazilla April 2, 2010 at 8:28 pm

To Just Glaze
You don’t have to live in one of those cities to apply.

I never qualify for these battles. You have to have those big sounding beats Young Jeezy type beats. They don’t seem to accept Wu-Tang, Jedi Mind Tricks type beats.

juiceboxjackson April 3, 2010 at 4:32 am

well, Boonie Mayfield absolutely destroyed his regional last year and he has quite a few beats I’ve seen him make that could be characterized as “Wu-Tang, Jedi Mind Tricks” type beats…it just appears that he stepped up his game and did some pretty original sounding stuff for these battles, but with his own flavor and twist…

juiceboxjackson April 3, 2010 at 4:35 am

and, it’s also important to keep in mind that the judges don’t decide who wins, it’s the fans…I love me some old school, boom bap beats just as much as the next fan but a whole bunch of them in a row isn’t too appealing in 90 second chunks, especially when the aim of the competition is to see who has the “biggest” tune…RZA will never be a producer who is seen as having “big” tunes I don’t think…:)

Just Glaze April 3, 2010 at 2:01 am

do they fly you out if you qualify or do you have to find your own way?

Reply

juiceboxjackson April 3, 2010 at 4:30 am

Somewhere in the rules it says you don’t have to live in the area and you can actually sign up for any location, just as long as you make there the day before the event…so, no, they don’t fly you out there just for the regionals; part of making the finals though is a paid flight out to the finals location (Chicago this year)

I want to do this but I don’t know. I know have got to stop sitting on my tracks. I just want to get my name known.

RTC Shogun April 5, 2010 at 2:05 pm

You guys gotta remember the guys going through the submissions are fans of hip hop. You don’t need to have commercial sounding tracks to make it. You’ve got guys like Jake One listening to submissions. Guys that make and appreciate dope hip hop. The actual battle is something else. You gotta get the crowd. It definitely helps to bring a cheering section.

Reply

DiskoDaveBBB April 5, 2010 at 9:48 pm

yeah, vitamin d and jake one i think are the ones responsible for the event and they ARE straight boom bap and sample heads. just peep their track records. your problem shouldn’t be with the staff, but with the crowd. majority rules. if you ain’t in a town that supports and appreciates real hip hop, then your chances are slim.

When should you send tracks if it hasn’t been determined yet? I wonder if they check the tracks up till the battle and let people know after the deadline? anybody know

Reply

RTC Shogun April 6, 2010 at 10:20 am

I think there’s a deadline date to send beats on the site. I think they wait till after the deadline to check the beats. I think I found out I made it a few days after the deadline.

I would suggest everyone who is near one of the regionals submit beats. It’s a great experience.

humbleman April 6, 2010 at 1:23 pm

Thanks RTC Shogun reason i asked was because VA doesn’t have a deadline yet and i thought it would be foolish to submit this early feel me.

Same as Roman. This is my first time entering and haven’t got a thing from them yet. I entered the S.F. battle.

Same as Roman. I entered the S.F. battle and have not heard from them yet.

I also entered the sf, just got word from a friend that he got selected today. I’m guessing if we didn’t here from them by now better luck next year, lol.
