Did you catch on to the theme throughout VPC 6? Each challenge was specifically tailored to focus on each of our judges strengths. Richie is undisputed MemeGod of nerdcore, so we had to make you write a track about memes. Beaker is all about dirty wubs and dub drops, so we had to make you write a song using one of his beat packs. Rob is the undisputed lord of chip, so we had to make you pay homage to our sister genre and bring the upmost respect. Lars? Of course we’d go with Litrap. Is there anyone who’s nailed the art of literature rap more than him?
Where does that leave us in round 5?! Four judges. Five rounds. You guessed it. That makes this challenge MINE.
Bringing the community together and helping it grow has always been and will always be my ultimate goal. So with that, in the spirit of working together, I challenge you all to…. Posse tracks! (You’re shocked, I know)
But wait! There’s more.
Vocalists, we’ve run you absolutely through the ringer this VPC and y’all have stepped up everytime. We are cutting you some slack. You have free rein on your writing this round. The subject of your track is open for you to choose (Although can I say that “The Ballad of Czarina” is long overdue?) and the style of your writing is completely unrestricted. Choose your features wisely*.
Producers, there’s a little more to your part. We are going to need at least 1 piece of live instrumentation in your beat. What you record and how you use it is up to you. You also need to switch up your beat at least once in your song. This switch can be a tempo / BPM / key change / time signature change / etc
*The nitty gritty details:
Vocalists: you are expected to be on your own track, plus you may do 1 additional feature.
Featured artists: are limited to doing a feature for 1 team.
There is no limit to how many artists can be on your tracks.
Producers who rap: you are also allowed to feature on either your own OR another teams track as a vocalist, should you wish to do so.
Sadly no, you cannot ask any of the judges to lay down bars for you.
