Second Annual Rap Battle Coming to Penn State

Do your friends tell you you have “sick beats?” Is your flow fresh, can you spit rhymes, or are you even just a poet that enjoys putting your work to music? Or maybe you’ve just always wanted someone to call you Funkmaster or DJ Smoothflow. If any of these things apply to you, Penn State’s Open (MIC) Music Inspiration and Concepts group has the event for you.

For the second year in a row, Open MIC will host a rap battle October 18 at 7 p.m. with a location to be announced. They’re looking for 8-10 rapping hopefuls to compete in a three-round, bracket-style competition with the overall winner receiving a cash prize at the end of the night.

Any aspiring rappers are encouraged to email [email protected] with your name, Penn State ID number, rap name, and any times you are available for a try-out. The rappers with the best try-outs will show their stuff next month and battle for campus supremacy as Penn State’s sickest emcee. Word on the street is that Jay-Z and Kanye West definitely will not be making appearances, but either way, the event should be a fun showcase of some of Penn State’s best up-and-coming rappers.
