SUBMIT A TRACK
Submitted tracks will be posted to this page as they come in. Format your track title like this: "NGHH'11 - Comp - Username" Make sure your track description contains what is required from the comp you are entering.

NG Sample Battle
Dj-Delinquent
Haywyre
EternalXIII
Gunner-D

Every element in this submission needs to be sampled from the NG audio portal, even the drums and bass. In your submission note which tracks you sampled and what you sampled, then link to it. If you can't explain where a sound came from you will be disqualified. Also, don't just copy and paste tracks together, really try to cut them up and turn your samples into something new.

Tag Team
Gunner-D and MickeyMao
DJ-Delinquent and Gasmasq
n1k-mUg and QSik

For this comp an MC needs to partner up with a producer to double team a track. The MC's need to use as many of the words as they can and will be judged on correct usage, pronunciation, and the quality of your rhymes among other things. The producer has to build their track with the Sounds to Include. You can have more stuff in your track, as long as you hit upon each sound. These don't need to be samples, you can try and just mimic something. In the track description MC's need to post their lyrics and producers need to explain what they did for each sound.

MC Topic: Hip Hop is not Dead
MC Words to use: megalomania, vicissitude, WikiLeaks, Ithyphallophobia, Dr. Strangelove, floccinaucinihilipilification, Occam's Razor, serotonin, Charlie Sheen, syncopation

Producers sounds to include: Film Noir, Miles Davis, and a Cartoon theme song.

Sample Battle
Download the sample pack here: http://www.mediafire.com/?sjq6t585ksiw dfi
Methreee
GunstarGreene
Haywyre
Wyze-Stingray
Tilkanuts
eppskevin

You can ONLY use audio from this pack. You must use the drums and bass in the kit, you may NOT use anything of your own. In the track description describe what samples you used and what you did with them. Diversity is key, try to really chop these things up and mash them all together. Transitions and a beat that varies is nice too. Download and get choppin!

The Shoulders of Giants
Sirhc7000
Dj-Delinquent
EternalXIII

This is a comp for producers and the end result should be an instrumental track dedicated to a famous hip hop producer. There are no rules regarding what audio you use in these submissions. VSTs, your own recording, samples, whatever. You have to mimic the style of the hip hop producer you chose. In your track description you need to link to a few examples from this producer and then explain what you did that was based on their work

Disclaimer

You are allowed a maximum of two entries per comp. Prizes are to be announced and will likely consist of Newgrounds store credit. All submissions must be uploaded to the Newgrounds audio portal and then posted in an NGHH thread or Big Red's news page. The artists retain ownership of their songs. By entering the contest the artist grants Big Red and Newgrounds permission to publish the tracks for promotional use without further compensation. An album will be produced with the winning entries of the competition, and the profits from selling that album will be used for prizes in the next competition.
