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…..
7th Trumpet 26 Project #OPERATIONREVOLUTION LOOKING 4 26 emcees http://wp.me/s2dJOM-129 via @wordpressdotcom
Here’s why…. if you are one of the 7 who submitted your verse on time, you are now being personally invited by me to be one of the 26 emcees featured on this project.

You see, being a great emcee is not the only tool you need to be successful. Honoring your word should be rewarded.
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 strongly suggest if you have not read the rules & guidelines, you should. It’s YOUR responsibility to know what can cause you to forfeit the round or be disqualified. There’s no crying in hip-hop. You follow the rules or you don’t. There is no second chance. Battle every round like your last.
STUDY YOUR OPPONENTS MUSIC.
