OSKRADIO.COM BATTLE BASIC INFORMATION
Dear Battle Rappers:
Welcome to Battlegrownd Entertainment #OPERATIONREVOLUTION. For those of you who don’t know, in 2008 when Battlegrownd.com began, we were a free battle site. In 2012 we became a monstrous indie label force in the underground music community across the globe via Twitter.
Please understand that in order to accomplish a traditional “battle” via the internet is extremely difficult and time consuming. Structure & order are needed in order to have it make the most sense for EVERYONE involved. If you were inconvenienced or confused at any point, we do apologize. We (Battlegrownd ENT) just got here, so there are changes. If change is too hard to handle, with all do respect… get out of the music game RIGHT NOW. It happens all the time here & it’s just the way it is. So, toughen up or get out of the ring. No love lost Battle verse will be 16 barz each time. If you prefer the “traditional” 30-second battle rounds or can’t battle with a 16-bar verse because it’s too long, you should battle in person, live radio, open mic, or a site that does direct streaming. At this time, OSKRADIO.COM does not provide live streaming for battles but may in the near future.
Your INSTRUCTIONS will ALWAYS be posted on queentheprophet.com under “OSKRADIO RAP BATTLES”. The link to these instructions will also be available on the OSKRADIO & Battlegrownd Entertainment Facebook pages. The link to queentheprophet.com is in constant rotation on Twitter. Under the OSKRADIO BATTLE tab on queentheprophet.com you will find all of the information pertaining to your battles, results, line –up, submission dates, & your judges.
There will be NO EXECPTIONS for late submissions unless there is an oskradio.com or queentheprophet.com technical issue beyond our control. Only then will a grace period be issued. Please do not ask for any other type of extension because the answer is NO.
Please remember the battle rap is not only about the “diss”…. In the final round, your judges will be looking for flow, word play, content, style…. Be prepared, this isn’t a game. You have 16-barz… getchoweightup
WELCOME TO THE REVOLUTION
