Yes, it's the time again. I just wanted to get on here and let it be known that we are looking to really be very selective with who we let in the main battle this year. We are strongly considering making it only the top 16 and not 32 mcs for first time ever. Making most everyone do a pre lim on "tour" or in Ohio. The problem is every year there is a bout 20-24 top MCs I want in there and I have to fill in the those last spots with extras or people who have potential and sometimes come thru and sometimes choke... I suppose it's not a exact science...ha. In addtion, the Ohio Pre Lim will also be much more selective and harder to get in. You will more than likely find many of the people who generally compete in the main stage battle in the pre lim rather than b-list, c-list, or "worse" MCs. This is all in our ongoing efforts with "quality control" which in turn makes it more entertaining for the fans which is one of the main reason we are doing this (also for the "progression" of the artform of battling). Anyway, anyone interested in competing should hit up me up ASAP to find out if you instantly qualify for the main battle or if you will be required to do a Pre Lim. I'll tell you this, there is only about 10 MCs who I imagine will come out this year who automatically quailfy for the main event. the only guarantee is if you were a 1st or 2nd place winner at Scribble Jam in the last 3 years.... hit me up: firstname.lastname@example.org Now that I've opened the scribble door, let the hating begin....ha.
