Cool The Battle for the RF Hip-Hop Industry

All the sweat, blood and tears you poured into assembling your all-star ensemble of history's greatest emcees...pays off here. In the octagon. RF's hip-hop octagon. Here, your record labels will be pitted against one another in a mano et mano, fight to the death. Here are the rules (for round 1):

-You and your opponent will post tracks for each emcee on your label that you feel best represents that respective emcee's overall skill, and justifies his inclusion on your team. Be careful though, because you may need that emcee's best tracks later on in the game should you move on. RF members will then vote on which label they feel boasts the highest-quality emcees.

That's it.

The latter stages will introduce wrinkles that will challenge different aspects of your emcees' style. But take it one stage at a time.

You'll have until midnight on Thursday to make trades with other labels and add/drop emcees from the free agency pool. No need for PMs, just make sure to log your transactions in THIS thread, and I will keep track of the rosters as often as I can.

What I DO need from every label by Thursday is a label name. Preferably something that reflects the skills and personalities of the emcees on your label but whatever, your label not mine. This can be PM'd to me or posted in the thread, I don't care.

It's game time, let the free agency period begin.

You'll be able to vote on which label you feel is the best. Forgot to include that part, I wasn't completely sober when I made the thread.

Nice picks. I like T.I. a lot. He's my favourite modern-day mainstream rapper.

Bump

You guys have a day and a half left until tomorrow's deadline at midnight to make any trades or acquisitions.

I also need label names, though that's kind of secondary. You can always just give me your label name when it's time for your matchup.

ideally we'd have three rounds but in order for it to run smoothly we need either:

a) an additional person to sign up and field a team of free agents

or

b) someone to field a B team.
