Rap Battle Contest - Beta

edited July 2011 in Social Entropy++
Internally, Brian (merch guy) and I like to torment Dave Coffman (PAX guy that is super shy) by taking on his (not actually his. Brian and I made it for him) West Coast 80s Rap Persona, DJ DeeCoff. We turn the quiet, mild mannered vegetarian into a lyrical flowing sex-hound that runs PAX on the side.

Anyway, I tell you this story because we're thinking of running a weird contest where the winners get a signed pair of these:
http://www.penny-arcade.com/2011/5/23/shoes/

the pre-order version of this:
http://store.penny-arcade.com/products/blamimations-season-1-dvd-set

and the pre-order version of this:
http://store.penny-arcade.com/products/volume-7-be-good-little-puppy

and a signed copy of the upcoming Season 2 DVD.
(NO LINK YET)

Given the creators (Kris/Scott and Mike/Jerry), I thought that what might be interesting was a contest that had you write a rap battle between the two groups. Is this weird? Yes, it's probably weird. But before we unleashed it onto the wild, I wanted to test the waters with you guys to see if it had legs.

Let's say 12-16 verses each side?

If it does well in here, we'll put it out into the world (whoever is best here I'm sure we can come up with a separate prize, and yeah the stuff you submit here will be put into the main pool as well).

Robert Khoo on
Some guy.

    Oh man, I hope we get to see a performance of the winning battle between the two teams. I might have to consider writing something for this, though rap is far from my specialty.

    So wait, is this just write a rap and post the wordy words in here? Or can we/should we write/record it to some sick beatz? Perhaps a ballin' video?

    I'm wondering the same thing.

    Does Khoo want this to be a full-fledged remake of Beat It, or just want some "mad rhymes"?

    I don't require laying it down to a track or beat or whatever - you can do that if you want but we're judging only on the merits of the lyrics at this point. :)

    This is a great idea. My only request would be that DJ DeeCoff be made to cast an expert eye over the entries, it sounds like he'd enjoy it. :D

    Oh, and to give you an idea... this was the first set of verses from my latest DJ DeeCoff Battle:

    That star up there's called David fo' a reason
    It's cuz I elevate and shine for PAX Season
    So bright the hos clusta' when I meet 'em
    I supernova in their ass and then I leave 'em

    Robert how gangsta can this rap be

    are we limited in this regard

    I mean, should we try to shoot for a Will Smith sorta clean, happy thing, or will it be ok to go the early 90's snoop/tupac route?

    It's 1am, I saw this and made this. It could probably use work.

    (K+S)

    Coming at you live from the Blamimation Nation
    We got all that you need so don't change the station
    Time to lay down these sick Blam beats
    So fire up yo' browser and pump out some tweets


    (M+J)

    Now we don't mean to rain on yo' parade
    But we are the boys from Penny Arcade
    We got Dickwolves, Fruitfucker and Wangs galore
    So listen up fools 'cos this is the score


    (K+S)

    Now look here Scott they think they the shit
    But we are next gen and yo' only 8-bit
    Nice call out to the gamers there Kris
    These rhymes we dealin' are sure not to miss


    (M+J)

    You must be trippin' if you think we scared
    We just like Batman fools, we always prepared
    So don't make us throw on our D&D attire
    'Cos that just means yo' rhymes will expire


    (K+S)

    We don't got to sit here and take this from you
    All y'all know we the true PA crew
    We took your throne and rinsed it down
    Whole world knows this is Kris and Scotts town


    (M+J)

    Yo' forget one thang in this lyrical war
    Let us remind you, freshen the score
    We run this ship, starboard, bow and decks
    So get the fuck out and clean out your desks
