I wanna start off by saying big ups to Rav on the battle. Dude did his research and came spittin fire.
However, I've got to take a couple issues with your synopsis of me.
Before that, though:
I battle on Newgrounds for the same reason I post anything here: to learn. How better to grow than to get another person's perspective? What we intend to portray is not always what is perceived. I've put myself on blast about everything I do in the hopes of avoiding an exposure, expecting my opponents to Google me and have a lot of material for personals, thus making for a more interesting battle. Please believe, unless I know you, I'll usually do the same. ;)
For the last two years though, there has been very little researching going on in these battles so I've felt kinda weird digging into my opponents lives. I didn't do that this year, initially because we were supposed to hurry with our Pre-Round battles, then I got cocky.

Anyway, this is probably going to be my last online competition. Just so everyone knows, if we've ever battled, it's going on a mixtape. After the jump.

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.
What Your Vote Should Look Like
Big Red's Tag Team Votes
1st - Username
Description of why Moe is so ill.
2nd - Larry
Blah blah blah
3rd - Germaine
A panel of judges will decide upon the winners of the art competition. Feel free to note your top three still as the judges will still read through the votes.

Fuck the industry. I'm doing this shit underground and dirty. As an independent artist, I will only get better and better at writing, recording, mixing and mastering. But for now, I've got WAY too many tracks to not have a CD.
So did I clear the samples?
Am I having it registered through Neilson Soundscan?
Will I pay taxes on my sales?
What will I do?
Create my own barcode to sell my product in stores?
Market it as an album instead of a mixtape?
Who's going to know the difference?
Have it printed by the 1st of December?
UPDATE: 20 copies printed, 15 sold!
So check it out, I'm trying to get back into college, and if you want to help me do that, please consider paying the $7.50 for a digital download to help me out. If you want the real CD, more are getting pressed as I type and they're $12. Holla!
Check it out!
