YouTube is kicking off its week-long OnTheRise rap competition in two days. $10,000 is at stake, as well as potential YouTube glory. As well as a chance to meet 50 Cent, Common, and Polow Da Don (or at least be judged by them, anyway, since I’m sure they really are reviewing each of the 500+ videos that will be submitted.)
All you need is a few rhymes and a video-recording cell phone and blam, you’re golden. The competition is similar to the YouTube Underground contest for rock bands, which actually produced some cool stuff.
My money would definitely be on Girl Crusade to sweep this one, if only she would get out there and create a music video.]]>
