    The G R B is back! This time it’s bigger.

    As you all know, the G R B is an audio battle tournament where battlers from around the world test their skills against each other.

    For the first time in G R B history, the two finalists will be able to choose the option of battling live in person, all expenses paid!

    Winner takes home $1,000.00 plus a percentage of the pot.
    The 2nd place contestant will also be entitled to a smaller portion of the pot.

    Here is the run down:
    Sign-ups begin Friday, July 12th, 2013 – 9am PST.
    Sign-ups will close once we get a sufficient amount of battlers confirmed (a 24 hour warning will be given).
    The cost to enter will be $15.00 USD (via PayPal).

    Let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns!

    Turns out, quite a few RM members don't really know what a GRB is.
    @J o o k don't forget the most recent GRB was in 2008.
    Correct me where I'm wrong:

    I had this conversation with someone which should clear a few things up about the format.

    When we battle is it on a beat?
    Yes. You pre-record your song and upload it to youtube or soundcloud before the deadline.
    You pick your own beat. Any industry beat or whatever you want is fine. You can even use the opportunity to expose your own production.


    When we get an opponent, we are dissing vs another rapper's NAME?
    Sometimes that's all you'll have... But you have the power of Google in your hands. . .
    Many of the battlers will be popular with a lot of info on them.
    Sometimes cowards will join the contest in an alias, but that's only an advantage in the 1st round of the tournament.
    And it makes them look like a pussy so a lot of people will consider that while voting.


    Is the W given based on the most views that a diss track gets?
    No. There is no need to solicit traffic. A Win is gained by Votes from the other battlers in the tournament and a few judges. You can vote on the other battles, too. The site will get it's traffic if the battles are good. Period.

    all these fucks need to know is that the format is the same as the live battle format, except obviously not live.

    You get a fucking matchup

    you get a due date

    both opponents make due date, the community votes on the battle.

    someone no-shows, the person who showed moves on.

    Prize is 1000 split between top finalist (1000+ the total accumulated from the entry fees)

    Simple?

    but it dont matter, cuz these niggas scared anyway.

    Sign Up Rules
    - You may only sign yourself up once.
    ...to one user-specific boardname.
    - No refunds.
    If you no show, 1st round or otherwise, it's on you. Don't get yourself banned by posting porn or breaking other obvious forum rules.

    - Lyrics may be vulgar or personal in nature.
    Listener/competitor discretion is advised.

    - He/She who battles in Round 1, is the only emcee permitted to compete under that boardname.
    An Emcee cannot battle in round 1, then give his boardname to someone else to battle in round 2.

    Battle Card will appear as such:
    Dingleberry vs. Johnny the Snake
    Clownshoes vs. Disco
    Lolly Gagger vs. Prometheon
    @Noodles vs. @J o o k
    SpaceNerd vs. Gunny Gunther

    Round Rules
    - Audios are due "DAY OF WEEK", "DATE", at "TIME" EST.
    (Usually midnight, with no less than 1 week deadlines)
    - Audios must be between 2-3 Minutes long. (Finals and Semi Finals may be longer)
    You may or may not wish to record intro/outro skits. How you use your time is up to you.
    - You must mention your opponents BOARDNAME at least once, regardless of their MC name.
    You can simply say "This is Noodles battling J O O K." and then go on to never use the BN again, or say it infinitely more times.
    - Upload your song to Soundcloud, Soundclick, or video to Youtube. RM will not store any audio files.
    - YOU must post YOUR SONG to the thread using the same board name that is registered to the match.
    Others will be DQ'ed.
    - Voting begins only after both Battlers have posted their music. And a VOTING LINK has been posted by a moderator.
    - No Comments allowed on battle post until voting links are posted.
    (Other than "check in" posts from the battlers, letting us know if they intend on battling or noshowing.)
    - Votes will be publicly shown per Boardname.

    So the top two rappers each get "a percentage of the pot", who gets the rest?

    Just outta curiosity... why do you act like a little girl about pretty much anything that doesn't revolve around you?

    Got that starved for attention "look at me" mentality or something bro?

    You don't like RM.com anymore or anything that happens here & hope everything fails because Lucy didn't pick you out of the rest of the class when you were raising your hand at one point (or something like that). We get it... want a cookie?

    I mean it ain't like you haven't made plenty of money yourself through RM.com. Let some other people cook and stop acting like a hoe about it, tbh @Wird of Pley.

    @Wird of Pley - you have a complete raging hard on for bashing this shit. You run over to "our em bee vee eh" and throw up a hate thread and come over hear and drop squats in the threads over here. You sound like the biggest butt hurt faggot known to faggotry itself. If u didn't actually give a shit, you wouldn't be postin about it so much... go shave your chin and read a book on how to talk to women.

    I mean if it isn't like a scorned female to run around and bash their ex all day long I'm not sure what is.

    I don't give a flying fuck one way or another about RAPMUSIC.COM and I wish them success and Godspeed bro. I'm not gonna run around making 75 replies with negative comments towards them. I threw a couple "clone" remarks at first and kept it moving. If it's for the better of the community and causes competition then cool, tbh.

    As hard as you riding for that site I'm guessing you'll be putting up a bunch of money out of YOUR own pocket to give the artists over there a chance to get some bread and put it to use building their careers. That's dope man keep up the good work for the community.
