Honorable Mentions

As we announced at the start of this contest, judging was conducted throughout. Finalists were determined at regular intervals in the contest, based on the entries we had at the time. However, at the eleventh hour we received a bunch of really great entries and could not award all of them a prize. So as some small consolation we are providing some of the best sound files for download.

Below is the original write-up of the contest on our site. The PaRappa the Rapper 2 Rhyme Contest is now closed -- no more entries will be accepted.

Sony has kicked us down five copies of Parappa the Rapper 2 and a Sony PlayStation 2 to give away to some lucky GamesFirst! readers. However, to win this amazing prize package you must work.

Do you think you have what it takes to step up to the mic? Sure, pressing buttons in time with the music is one thing, but what about your compositional and lyrical abilites? How do they measure up? This is the chance for all of you wanna-be rappers out there to show us what you've got. You got rhyme? Then give it up. Send in your best rap and you can be a winner.

The Competition:

Write a rap (or freestyle if that's your thing) in which you mention "PaRappa the Rapper" and "PlayStation." You can gain bonus points by maintaining a videogame flow and working in other keywords like "Sony" and "GamesFirst!" Record yourself, with or without musical accompaniment, and send it in to us in MP3 or WAV format.

Over the next five weeks we will choose Finalists from the pool of entries. These Finalists all win a copy of PaRappa the Rapper 2 for PlayStation 2, and each week we will post the winning rap on GamesFirst! After the five Finalists have been chosen, we will choose a Champion from the winning entries who will win a brand spankin' new Sony PlayStation 2.

Sweet Deal -- How Do I Enter?

Good question. Send your entries to us via the link below. Before you go getting all up on the microphone, there are a few finer points you might want to keep in mind:

  • You MUST use the words "PaRappa" and "PlayStation" in your rhyme to win.

  • Your rap can be as long and intricate as you'd like (you may use background music, but you don't have to). However, your MP3 file must be under 1MB (that's One MegaByte). If your rhyme is short, a WAV file should work just fine.

  • Entries sent in a format other than MP3 or WAV may or may not be listened to.

  • Be sure to include your name, email address, and shipping address in your email to us.

  • By sending your entry to us, you assert that it is the product of your own talent. Entries suspected of being plagiarized or violating copyright will be discarded.

Those are the basics. We look forward to hearing what you come up with. So what are you waiting for? Click that link (and don't forget to attach your file).
