Blue and White Rapper Competition

bwrThis Blue and White rapper competition seems more promising than Gatorade’s Are you G? contest. Not only can you include your own music, but you also get to assign yourself a “rapper name.” Additionally, you have the chance to surpass the fame of the Mountain Brothers, the last nationally successful rapping group to come out of Penn State. The three students entered a nation-wide contest sponsored by Sprite in 1996 and won, soon landing themselves a deal with Ruffhouse Records.

While the Blue and White rapper contest doesn’t guarantee a record deal, it does guarantee its winner sixty seconds of fame during half time at the Blue and White game on Saturday, April 25th. But before attaining glory at the Blue and White game, the top sixteen finalists will have to submit themselves to the Penn State population’s online vote. Eight finalists from this round will then battle at the HUB from April 20-April 23, and the winner will take the stage at halftime on the 25th.

Think you’re up to the challenge? The Collegian asks that you “submit your ‘rapper name’ and 1 minute rap video about Penn State football to the HUB information desk, the Lasch Football Building, or the Collegian Offices Thursday, April 2nd at 4pm.”

Last Spring, Penn State Director of Housing Conal Carr announced the decision to disconnect Penn State dormitory landlines beginning fall 2009.
