Hosted by MICxSIC (Savage Fam Productions, B.E.T, VH1), the competition judges participants based off lyricism, singing ability, song writing, showmanship and crowd control. Competitors are organized into 4-5 separate groups. During the first round, instrumentals will be played at random and artists can either freestyle or recite an original, prewritten verse or hook(s). The top 4-5 from each group are narrowed down by a panel of judges. During the second round, competitors get to perform 1 original song. 1 wild card is selected by the judges out of all the remaining contestants who did not make the final cut. A final cypher and vote by the audience will determine the grand prize winner.
The winner will earn an all expense covered trip to Atlanta, GA to headline the October 27th Bar Exam, a photoshoot, music video, interview & a private recording session with our official studio partner Salem Psalms Studios (A Tribe Called Quest, J-Live, Dead Prez, DITC). Everything is packaged together by Savage Fam Productions and sent to their media partners to promote.
Industry Judges: Producer Myke E. Stallone (Big Krit, Childish Gambino, Rome Fortune), DJ J. Taylor (Magic 101.3) & Poet Desirae Lee.
