About the “Lounge Battles X Tour”
Grind Time Now presents the Lounge Battles 10 Year Anniversary Tour that will feature special GTN Tryouts through their MC Rumble, Producer Battles, and special Breaker Battles.
The “Lounge Battles X Tour” will be hosted by The Legendary Rhyme Inspector Percee P along with Grind Time Now Founder & President Madd Illz who will be traveling to 40+ cities in search of the best Emcee’s and Producers. These battles have always drawn out the best Producers and Emcees so for this final series we will be having each location host preliminary tryouts that include a Breaker Battle! This will most likely be the last opportunity anyone gets to be crowned the National Lounge Battles Champion!
Grind Time Now is the worlds largest Hip Hop Battle League and their branded “GTN Lounge Battles Series” is the largest MC Battle event in the United Sates. Now entering its 10th and final year, Lounge Battles 10 (LBX) is set to go out with a bang! Currently, with over 99 million views on YouTube alone, GTN will be looking to prop up their next battle star like never before!
All preliminary competitions will be supported by official GTN affiliate Vigilant Promotions and hosted with our partners around the United States which will introduce a variety of opportunities to advance to the GTN National Finals in December 2013.
Each Producer will play their beats against each other until there is one left. The winners will advance to the GTN State Finals and then on to the GTN National Finals in December.
32 Emcees face off all at the same time for the title of the MC Rumble Champion. Winners will advance to the GTN State Finals and then on to the GTN National Finals in December. Breaker Battles will be run similar to this and will be held by request only.
GTN Tryout Battle Rules:
- Each tryout is 60 seconds in length.
- Each Tryout battle will be 2 rounds only.
- No battle will be judged. Madd Illz and staff are looking for potential and quality, not wins and losses.
- Yes, There is a $50 fee. This cuts down on no shows and emcees who do not take their career seriously.
- Once you pick a city below and pay your registration fee, an emcee will be paired off against you to give you plenty of time to write.
- The cities with the largest turnouts and best battles will become a new Grind Time Now Division in 2014 so encourage your friends to come watch you battle.
- VERY IMPORTANT: Please respond with at least 2 cities that you would tryout in. Cities are subject to change.
- West Coast dates are currently being planned.
