ROUND 2 VERSES ARE ALL DUE Thursday, March 21 2013 at 11:59pm EST
We’re not issuing anymore advance dates then what is listed. Unfortunately, since folks aren’t keeping their commitments we have no way of knowing how many actual battle dates we’ll need. So instead of driving everyone nuts, we’ll update as we go so everyone has the most current information. Once all of the Round 2 submissions are in, the new dates will be posted. If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me!
To those of you who honored your commitments and submitted your verses, congratulations. The music industry is the HARDEST industry to make it in. It is not for the wishy- washy. One of the best traits as an artist you can have is honoring your word and keeping your commitments. Win or lose, be proud of yourselves. Now here’s another TWIST……
If you’re not familiar with the Battlegrownd Entertainment “7th Trumpet 26 project” , READ THIS POST…..

BATTLE LINE UP
Peace & Blessings Battle Rappers. For those of you who don’t know me, I am @queentheprophet CEO/ Artist/HipHopMobWife @battlegrowndent. Check my resume. I shall be your hostess for the battling of the barz. You will always see detailed instructions as well as a few jewels dropped in-between if you’re wise enough to pay attention. I want you to be successful. If you fall, get back up. Hip-hop is about heart. The foundation of our music is symbolic from people coming from nothing and making it. We the people used to elect our lyrical champions. Then the industry saw that too many poor people got rich and bought hip-hop. But if you’ve been paying attention…. #OPERATIONREVOLUTION is changing that with the help of too many to name, including OSKRADIO. The first step to taking hip-hop back into the hands of the people is done in arenas just like this. Welcome to the revolution…. Underground STAND UP #LOYALTYISEVERYTHING

I was just thinking that I’ve been so slammed with #OPERATIONREVOLUTION it’s been a minuet since I have blogged any of the traditional QTP wisdom. So I need to pause for the cause. I think I’m going to make this a combination of hip-hop and #REALTALK.
Anyone who has met me in the arena of music will tell you, I just do things differently. Fam, I have been SNAKED in ways I can’t even wrap my own mind around sometimes but I don’t let it change me. I learned on a long hard road that the secret that unlocks blessing is love. What other people do to you is about them, not you. Only hurting people hurt other people. It’s not an excuse it’s the way it is. You have got to learn to take the hits and keep going.
Now this is extremely dangerous in the music industry because most people have no idea the jungle it is. People will lie, cheat, steal, and stab their own Momma just to get on top. They do these things with no remorse because they move at a speed faster then anything you could imagine and unless you have seen it with your own eyes, you will never understand. I can tell you that the reason we are successful is because we don’t operate like that. People forget a very simple principle, if you do right, blessing happens. You do wrong and you reap that, somehow, someway, someday. You don’t even have to be perfect, but you at least have to make an effort. We got folks out here acting like they had no home training at all… ever.
Battlegrownd Entertainment has NEVER stolen anything from an artist or a person we have conducted business with. We keep our word, we honor our commitments. Above all things, we try to help those who come to us or at least point them in the direction of where they should be headed. Now we do that because that’s who we are as individuals. You can check our resume, it’s all true. The sense of love, unity, loyalty, honor, & respect somehow was smothered out of hip-hop by skinny jeans. We make sure that we keep those values and communicate this through the music we make and the services we provide. Sometimes it’s explained in a graphic way. Sometimes what’s graphic just so happens to be the truth. If you haven’t been convinced #OPERATIONREVOLUTION is worth supporting, I encourage you to get to know some of our affiliates. Ask them why they support us. Then I invite you to get to know us. You won’t be disappointed and we promise to never ever sell you a piece of music that isn’t worth the money you spend.
Here’s how we spend what you support us with….. Take a look through #OPERATIONREVOLUTION Certified Resources. Watch our promoters. We hire the people. We purchase our services from other Indies. You give it to us, & we give it away.
I told you I was the Robin Hood of HipHop and I’m not by myself, there’s an army…..
Most of you know I RARELY co-sign anything or anybody. The #OPERATIONREVOLUTION Certified stamp is never to be taken lightly.
#ConfessionsOfTheHipHopMobWife : By far, this is my favorite piece on an artist I’m blogging to-date. Charlie Summers is Fam to me (#DBG #427) but that has nothing to do with why it’s my favorite. To be quite honest, Charlie and I got off to a bit of a rough start… LOL You just can’t have 2 Gemini’s in a room. That’s 4 people in the room trying to run the show.
I love what I’m presenting to you because in my personal opinion, Charlie Summers (Ciroc Boyz, Frat House USA) makes some of the best music I have ever heard (He’ll be finding out I think so highly of him at the same time you all do). Fam, I can’t front if I wanted to… Charlie’s latest video “The Last Donut” is not only one of the most outstanding pieces of independent film I’ve seen, but the music? Smh… I smile every time I hear it. I remember when music used to move me. Somehow it got lost and #OPERATIONREVOLUTION stepped up to bring it back. I strongly urge you to watch this video and see for yourself. Charlie, you found hip-hop. Thank you for bringing it back. #SALUTE #DBG #427

PHYSCOROCK known via Twitter as the #KushFaceGang “Stoner Celeb” @fuimstoned is an artist of many talents & faces.
Physcorock (Huston, TX) is a 12-year veteran emcee that has not yet been heard outside of Huston. Battlegrownd Entertainment CEO @Queentheprophet added Physcorock (aka 211 My N*gga no gang relation) to the #OPERATIONREVOLUTION Roster in October, 2012. The 211 reference is NO GANG affiliation. Physcorock says “The term 211 means armed robbery. I use that because the industry is full of commercial rappers who make a mockery of life and a lifestyle of people who actually lived it trying to make it. I know that I’m very graphic & detailed in my music, but I’m willing to go there by force because it’s real. I’ll never go commercial. I have so much respect for artists like Bone Thugs, 2Pac, Biggie, & Tech-9 because they weren’t afraid to spit real s***. I’ve only come to make music. I’ve been making music since the 8th grade and with or without a label, I’d still make it.” Physcorock debut world-wide release project “ANIMAL” is part of the Battlegrownd Entertainment #HipHopApocalypse 2013.
Physcorock brings something to hip-hop that you don’t hear too often and have it be legit. Physcorock legally diagnosed with Schizophrenia, is going to take the world places through his music that they otherwise could never go. Just bank on that everywhere the journey brings you, it will never be a case of some bubble gum rapper claiming crazy. We’ve seen enough of that. Physcorock is truly a lyrical MONSTER. Battlegrownd Entertainment CEO @queentheprophet has said “Well, the world has met the DOBERMAN GANG #DBG #427, now they can meet my #OPERATIONREVOLUTION pet monster. Any emcee that thinks lyrically they can take out Physcorock? PLEASE TRY. He goes places in his barz that no sane mind could ever go”. Physcorock states in his lyrics “I Physcorock sh** and I rock sh** PHYSCO” & boy, oh boy is telling the truth. Physcorock is working on his next project “NOT A HUMAN” (due 3rd Qtr 2013) and will feature an appearance from his “Legally Insane” partner in crime (from Tomball, Texas) “SeVeN”. You’ll also see Physcorock appear on Battlegrownd Entertainment/CEO @QueentheProphet debut project “Rise of the Phoenix” 3rd Qtr 2013, and the Battlegrownd Entertainment MXTP “Island of Misfit Toys” due out 4th Qtr.
The first single “HI HATER” Freestyle will be released on 2/25/13. Why release a freestyle? Frankly, because the world had forgotten what a true lyrical MONSTER sounds like freestyling off the top of their head.
“HI HATER” on Utube: http://youtu.be/izROuSaGLeQ
“HI HATER” on Soundcloud:https://soundcloud.com/battlegrowndentertainment/physcorock-hi-hater-freestyle
The next single is an original track “MUDSLIDE” and will be released via iTunes 3/13/13. Mudslide is that Strip Club BANGER you hope is on every hip-hop album you buy. We PROMISE it’s worth the $1 download…. we haven’t let you down yet 🙂
“Animal” in full project drops 4/17/13.
Some of the other faces of Physcorock are @fuimstoned. Physcorock is the originator of the infamous #KUSHFACEGANG & #StonedSociety Hash Tags #FUimStoned #FmeImStoned & #420Army #HittaBluntCalmTheCrazy #SilenceYourSober. In his professional entertainer style, Physcorock brings a very humorous approach to cannabis activism. The “brand” #FUimStoned can be followed on Twitter @fmeimstoned.
