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.

Lessons Learned
>Don't post random webcam videos. (sudo killprocess: camwhore.js)
>Still can't say nig... uh... "the n word". Dammit...
>Consider the audience. Thanks Mickey
>Don't label myself. My Self is my label


>I am not, never was and will never be a gangster rapper. Period. I'm a fuckin nerd, duh?
>Any gun references I ever make are referring to verbal bullets. Vocal Gunslinger
>I haven't been able to LARP bc of work since before the Winter Battles. >_<
>I try to think of life outside the box. I'm never claimed to be Nietzche or a Buddha. Call it what you will.

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.

Blame KlazikNadi / Freestyle Fridays for starting me with freewriting. Not my usual style, but definitely the best video production I've done yet.

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.

Hazardous Materials is OUT!!

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?
Easy, sure.
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!

While you may think you're good in your little fairytale land, out here in the real world, nobody likes you.

1. Learn how to take criticism.
2. Stop acting like a little girl.

Also, you wear make up.


Recording Studio

2010-01-27 14:37:18 by Gasmasq

So I guess Redline Entertainment wants me to run their studio. Lord knows why... However I've got Logic Pro 9 now, so hopefully I can use it's presets to help me out.

Any advice?
