Pony Swag Megamix 2.0

Postby Direct Current » 16 Oct 2016 19:48


Horse raps been a bit quiet recently. Or maybe I don't follow enough rappers? Fuck, who knows. Either way, it's time to bring a dead horse back to life and beat it back. Don't know what I'm talking about?

So here's the deal;

Everyone gets one verse; 16 bars at 120bpm. I've got a loop you can rap to.

Because of how the mix will be looped, half of you would be able to get a 2 bar talk up (4 seconds.). If you feel you can do a decent one, go ahead.

I'll be accepting as many rappers as I can, but there is some sort of quality control.

-Microphone above potato quality. I don't care if you use your phone, ipod, build in computer mic, tape recorder from the 80s, what have you. It just can't sound like someone rapping two rooms over.

-Verse is horse/show/community related. It doesn't have to be "holy shit i love horses, buck off parasprites BROHOOF" god that hurt to write, but like. It's pony swag. Get over yourselves and write pony verses.

-No crazy mixing shit. It's a rap megamix, you don't need to show off your producing skills. (shit like doubling at parts are acceptable. Listen to an In the End by Linkin Park acapella, that wouldn't be taken; too much focus on mixing.)

-It's reasonably on beat. If I can't line it up so most of it fits with the track, then there's an issue.

-Don't get too ridiculous on lyrics. Look at the original lyrics. I can't quite say what you can and can't do, but don't get fucking ridiculous. Cursings fine, but if your verse goes "fuck shit piss cock motherfucker" then there'll be an issue. If you're unsure about your lyrics, feel free to pm me on here and I'll give a judgement.

You'll send me just your rap, not the rap and instrumental. 44.1kHz sample rate, lossless file format (Wav, Aiff, Flac). If you can only get me mp3, that's fine.

You have a whole 5 weeks to write and record.

There'll be a free download on dropbox or mediafire for the megamix. No money.

Try and get the word out or something so we can get as many rappers/musicians as possible. Whether it reaches 1 minute of new rap or 20 minutes of new rap, I'll still put it together. That being said, try writing a verse even if you aren't a rapper. I'll be trying to make something myself. Give it a shot.

Deadline; November 19th.
Release Date; November 25th
