The Beat Melee: Battle #Three

Mmm the fresh smell of hate in the air almost got us scared to post some new beats. But that won’t stop us, the battle rages on. Last week both producers brought heat with vastly different styles.  After a fierce competition, Sha Beatz ran away with the decision over Poe.  Just to clear up a few things, knows none of the producers that submit, so there are no hook-ups. Pay close attention to the criteria for judging and that will help with understanding the decisions.  Second, a lot of the producers that submit do not get considered because you submit three minute long beats, a link to some external downloading source, or send and email with no attachment at all. So be careful how you submit. Your beats must be able to play directly from Gmail accounts.  And without further ado, on to the next Battle.  The criteria once again is below…Creativity: The drum patterns, the instrument flow, the vibe.Originality: Is this different or just the Timberland, Kanye, Neptunes, rip-off!!?Marketability: Can we imagine someone rhyming or singing on this beat?Structure: Changes, bridges, hooks etc..
