GOLDEN MIC RAP BATTLE is a rap battle competition designed to steer the youth from drugs and promote the rappers involved to better themselves. Due to the success of the last season, GMRB -Season 5 aims once again to dig out Lagos’ hidden hip hop talents.
This year the competition is based once again in the confines of subculture, Festac Town, for the perfect underground feel. DJ Sunny Dread will be on the wheels of steel. With Suki Field’s cagey feel the promoters hope to set the perfect atmosphere to raise excitement levels across the intense nights of talent, great music and all around feel-good vibes.
GMRB consists of a total of sixteen MCs who will battle it out for the Golden Mic Award and cash prize. There can only be one winner so there are several rounds to prune away the competition before a true winner can be announced. This means there will be lots of preliminary battles to enjoy.
MC’s will be tested over several beats and they can even acapella. The independent judges will award points as follows:
• Crowd reaction
• Voice clarity
The winners of each round plus the highest scoring runner-up will go through to the final. The competition will be judged by some of Nigeria’s biggest hip-hop heads.
Season 5 is on Saturday 11 January 2014. If you wish to enter the competition, the closing date for entries is Saturday 27 December 2014.
