Abstract Rude was given the 10 entries that were submitted into the Beat Producer Competition.  From those he has chosen the 3 that will be used in the MC portion of the 4 Elements of Hip Hop Show this Sunday.  The beats will also be sent to Rymesayers Entertainment to possibly be used by a Rhymesayer artist.

MCs that have worked with Justus Entertainment in the past have been invited to the MC Battle portion of the show.  BUT there are still 2 more spots open in Abstract Rude’s 16 Bar Battle.  If you are a Bozeman area MC and would like to enter to battle for one of the last 2 spots, be at Cactus Records this Friday at 5pm.

This is not a freestyle battle.  MCs looking to win should come with 16 bars of written material for each of the 3 beats.  Subject matter is joined with the beats.  Below are listed the beats and the associated subject matter to write about.

The 3 winning beats are…


1. “OG Smith” by Bobby G.  Subject: Your Experience/ History with Hip Hop.

Looking forward to seeing everyone this Sunday at the Emerson Cultural Center!
