Yes you heard correctly, We are having an ATS rap contest.

ATS member Mad_Hatter has been so kind as to supply us with three of his original beats and we are asking you to come up with the best ATS rap possible.

The only stipulations are this....

1). Keep it clean, if it is anyway obscene, it will be deleted. The same T&C applies here as in the threads.

2.) It has to be about ATS or some way related to conspiracy theories.

3). Have fun with it. No one here expects you rhyme like Jay-Z so enjoy it.

Points will be awarded to the winners and you will have the chance to shine among your peers and show off your flow.

First place: 10,000 points

Second place: 5,000 points

Third place: 2,500 points

The winners will be chosen by myself and Mad_Hatter, the man behind the beats, on July 15th.

You can choose from one of the three beats listed below or you can provide your own. Remember, have fun with it.

Track 1

Track 2

Track 3

Good Luck!!!!

Hello to the OP. I had a question...

I am on an internship in a foreign country. Would it be coo to submit via a written post? I have no means to record anything out here.

Yes, is this to be done by written post or recording?

Can anyone get at me with a U2U about how to actually lay vocals down to some of these beats.


This should be fun.

Oh yeah. It's on.

The contest is to be done by recording and the quality doesn't have to be outstanding or anything. We don't expect you to have a $3000 Mic. You can record your songs with any kind of mic you can hook up to your computer really. I will have to check with kleverone about entering via written post, but I don't think that would be fair to the ones recording their lyrics, myself. Also I will not be entering the contest since I am judging and supplied the songs.

Keep em comin!

If anyone wants to use these lyrics I just coughed up for the contest, go ahead:


Seconds upon entering the house
I got my finger on the trigger of the mouse
the craving need to log on to ATS
swimming in a pool of cess,
til I find a thread for the head
not a thread dead,
checking back to see if anyone listened to what I said,
ignoring all the posts I havent read...flirting a redhead.

This is where the extreme come to feed
where ideology plants its seed
and goes from substream to mainstream,
reality to daydream,
mix crap and cream, nothing is as it seems.

Socialist Mysognist talks to Fascist Fatalist,
ex-scientologist turns anarchic fist,
homophobe evangelist gets dissed,
paranoid ufologist was rickrolled and dismissed
ATS for the enlightened and the pissed.

To be totally fair to everyone, you can simply submit lyrics although part of the judging will be based on your ability to flow. Depending on how may entries we get we may have to have two categories. One for lyrics and one for an actual rap to a beat. Feel free to use your own beats as well. The three provided do not have to be the ones used, although they are sick so I would suggest trying them out.

Have fun and best of luck!


Skyfloating, I love it! I would LOVE to hear you rap it!

Depends on how the first entries sound


This will pick up in time.

If MadHatters beats ever start getting overused, I´ll provide some too. Make your next competition a beats-competition and I´ll be sure to participate.

Hats off to mad_hatter (pun intended, ;/) and kudos to kleverone for setting it up.

Of course, i'm not actually entering the event, i'm too shy for competitions, but i'll agree the beats are good.

I've never rapped before in my life. But I will think about this. It should be funny hahaha.

So I got 2 weeks to learn, hmmmmm.

I'll think about it.

Personally I would LOVE to hear all of you try to rap too lol.

I got a REALLY crappy microphone, it makes all kinds of odd noise. Hmmm gonna have to figure something out.

Anyway I'm busy the next few days so I am not sure about being able to make anything in time. But I will think about it.

Oh yeah why don't mad_hatter and kleverone do one too?



Edit: Can anyone tell me if using background music of other musicians is OK or not, or do we have to create our own or use MAD_Hatters one?

Since Kleverone set the thing up he´ll have to be the first to rap?

I am certainly not ruling it out. I just need to find the time when my four year old won't try to outshine me

I'll be down to kill a mic, when i get a chance to plug my mic in i'll wreck your beats for ya. Where's Technique? He needs to get in on this.

July 15 deadline? I should be able to find a few minutes for some off the dome stuff.

Great idea for a contest! I would love to participate but for some reason I can't tracks 2 and 3 are not loading properly. Is anyone else getting this?

For those who do not have multitrack recording software there are a couple free programs here that you can download:

Audacity: audacity.sourceforge.net...
Kristal Audio: www.kreatives.org...

Of course you will also need the microphone. If anyone needs help with these proggies, feel free to U2U me and I will be glad to help you.
