If you haven't heard about it, BIgRed is hosting the 2012 Clabtrap battles here on NG. Along with the 46 mc rap battle, there are also two producer battles. Although I had originally entered both the sample and scavenger hunt battles, due to time limitations and emcees flaking on me, I was only able to enter the scavenger hunt battle.
Here is my Entry for the Scavenger hunt battle: Ex!!! Scavenger Battle
Thanks to Alexander Glenfield for allowing me to sample his tuvan throat singing.
Thanks to InvasiveInsomniac for giving me a sweet beatbox to play with and work into the track.
Thanks to both SenatorJohnDeanand Panther Paw for recording verses for me with less than a days notice! You two are the shit!
Leave a review to vote on the MC Knock Out.
To vote on the other battles:
I'm going to use Tag Team as an example here. So, to vote on the Tag Team battles what you first must do is listen to every Tag Team track. Go and read the rules for the Tag Team battle and then rank your top 3 submissions according to the rules specified. For the Tag Team you want to look at how MC's used the words, whether they pronounced and used them right, their flow, their rhymes, the content, and more. Then you want to look at the producers, how well they used their topics, and the over all quality of the track. Type up a paragraph justifying your decisions for your three top tracks. Eventually we will tally everyone's results and declare winners!
Then post your decision of the results on BigRed's newspage. As usual, keep discussions in the audio forum thread.

It's not done yet, but it's a damn good start. This is easily my favorite sample this year! It is Ethel Ennis - The Moon Was Yellow, If your digging around and you happen to stumble upon more of her, look out, because you've probably stumbled across something dope! EX!!!- The Moon Was Yellow
