How are the winners chosen?
The contest referees select the winners from a shortlist, consisting of 25 tracks. The winners' shortlist includes:
The 20 tracks with the most votes in that week;
+5 WILD CARD tracks (Rap Fame choice).
The top 5 winners are then chosen by the Rap Fame team from this shortlist.
In selecting the winners, the referees are guided by the below set of key criteria:
The track should feature high-quality songwriting;
The track should be recorded by the author themself;
The track should aim for the best recording quality available to the artist;
The track should not insult entrants, users, listeners or the Rap Fame Team.
IMPORTANT: By entering the contest, you agree that the opinion of judges may not coincide with your or your friends’ opinion (however, it does not mean your track is bad or unworthy of victory).
Who are the contest referees?
The winners are chosen by the Rap Fame Team. Each week this may be different people including administration, celebrity referees or our contest partners and sponsors.
What is a Rookie Contest?
The Rap Fame Weekly Rookie Contest is a tournament to identify the best new rapper on the platform. This rapper should demonstrate an array of artistic skills such as quality rhyming, rhythm, delivery and flow.
The Rap Fame Weekly Rookie Contests are not battle rap tournaments. There is no direct opponent in this type of competition. Therefore it's prohibited to battle or ambiguously insult users, listeners and entrants. Since it is impossible to foresee all the cases, the Rap Fame Team asks you to rely on common sense. Whether your track goes beyond the boundaries of common sense is determined by the contest referees. To avoid any dispute, please, leave your best dissing punchlines for battles and battle tournaments.
Who is eligible for the Rookie Contest?
Artists can only enter the rookie contest once per lifetime. To qualify for the cash prize, artists must enter the contest within 7 days of registering their account on Rap Fame.
