  • Think You Can Rap? Win $25,000 (YouTube Contest)

    I love hip hop, but I know I can't rap. But there's a contest on YouTube where you can win $25,000 if you create the best rap for TurboTax. I don't work for them or anything but I thought it'd let people on this board know about the contest.

    It's clever competition, in my opinion...where's Blazed Mic at? Peircy I'm looking your way since you were just bragging about having a YouTube account. And Netcees, here's your chance to shine and make some serious cash lol.

    Here's the best one so far, imo:

          Pish. I'm telling you some corny motherfucker will win, but if you want to do it go ahead.

          I can spit, but seeing shit like this just winds me up. How about some better oppertunitys for emcees instead of writing about some company. Reeks of retardation.

          Thats why i quit this shit for a while, it's embarressing to accoicaitted with most hip-hop these days, they just want to exploit you and your image. Most rappers get NO respect from me, because if they arn't sucking dick and taking it up the arse for a chance, they're degrading themselves, the culture, and most times degrading black people. Making them look like fucking minstrels. Jivin' and rhymin' for ya.

          A bit of a rant there, but fuck it i'm BORED!

            yeah I agree. I'd recommend creating a video about how you file your taxes now and say you'll give TurboTax a try. If the video is sincere, you might just win.

            Lisanova, a popular YouTube user, entered a contest to dance with the Flaming Lips on stage. She submitted a very sincere video and actually won.

                    Just peeped two lines a or something from that first video and i turned it off. That was terrible.

                    I'm up for all you can give me. This is my myspace with a little freestyle on (just two spare verses, not off the top) if you think i'm wack, i'm not bothered. I know i'm better than that cunt.

                    Sorry if thats you though Trex, but its wack.

                            Yeah McDonalds got a lot of shit last year for the same sort of thing. But I think this is different. They're not asking big name rappers to subliminally drop McDonalds in their rhymes. They're taking the contest to a crowd that loves to make videos and saying that the rhyme's gotta be about taxes.

                            How is this any different from asking rappers to make a commercial? They could've easily gone to Jay-Z or some other famous rapper who would've taken the 25 grand. But here, they're giving the community at large a chance to enter.

                            I'm torn on the issue, like you - but I think this is a legit contest since they're aren't trying to hide the fact that they want you to rap about taxes.

                            And what if we discover an amazing rapper from this contest? Don't laugh, a couple of YouTube users (esmeedenters and terranaomi) have gotten record contracts from recognition on YouTube.
