Hit-Crib Presents "Firday Night Fights" Rap Battles 30 March @ Club Le Bal in Zurich

Hit-Crib is a new indie Hip Hop label here in Switzerland. The basic idea behind "Friday Night Fights" is to uplift Hip Hop as a culture here in Switzerland and bring our beloved "way of life" to Mainstream like in the USA.

Unlike most rap battles, our concept is designed to promote unknown Rap Artists by allowing any and all (male and female) to compete in any language they want.


In addition to promoting the Artists, we are also promoting unknown producers and beat makers as all the beats used during the events will be from producers and beat makers here in Switzerland and Europe.


Furthermore, the judges will be known Artists, Producers, and other people in the Industry for these monthly events.


Prize package for the winner includes the following:

-300 CHF prize money
-Gift certificates for online music and hip hop clothing
-Two Gold class Kino tickets
-Live interview on 105 Dope Hip Hop Radio with Samurai
-Winner will be featured in Hit-Crib’s publication “Unsigned Hype”
-10 hours Free at Hit-Crib’s Studio
-Limo Ride to next battle so winner can defend his/her title
-Entire event will be video recorded and used as advertising for future Battles
-more and larger prizes will be added as the event progresses


In order to force the market to change, we must start from within!!

I'm moving this to commercial events. You also might consider putting an entry into the Calendar for each event. Since we can all read, please don't use tons of colour and fonts in your messages as it's annoying.

Good luck with your events. Let us know how they go.

How are they going to "battle" each other in different languages ?

Or do you have categories ?

Re: Hit-Crib Presents "Firday Night Fights" Rap Battles 30 March @ Club Le Bal in Zur

Hello and thanks for your question.

"Friday Night Fights" is a monthly event that is intended to be held on the last Friday of each month in a different Swiss city each month.

The "any language" idea is the catch. The idea is just because someone competing in Swiss German may be the favorite during the Zurich battle, it does not mean that person will be a favorite in Geneva or the Italian speaking part of Switzerland.

Switzerland is a multi-lingual and multi-cultural Country and to limited the concept to just one language would not be fair to others. Also, this give everyone a fair shot during the events.

A battle is not only judged by what you say to your opponent. You are also judged on how you "flow" with the given beat, if your words make sence, and how you "move the crowd". In addition, the beats are unknown which will really bring out the best in the rapper.

Also, all the contestants are well informed that if the sign up for a Zurich Battle, then most of their opponents will rap in Swiss or High German. They must prepare themselves for this possibility and come prepared to take on all involved. The same goes for when Friday Night Fights in held in Geneva. The contestants already know that most will rap in French.

Currently, we've been advertising the Zurich event for 3 weeks now and we already have 11 of 16 contestant's joined. Of the 11 contestant's the languages so far include: Swiss German, High German, English, French and Turkish. Two of the contestant's are traveling from Southern France to compete in Friday Night Fights. This alone already provides evidence that our concept is working!

I hope I have answered your question and please feel free to ask more questions.

Best,

Killa Silk
Hit-Crib Entertainment

Ok I would want to know what the rappers say though. Anyway most of the pseudo gangsters out there will be delighted.

Good look with the concept.

Is there a party afterwards with good hip hop music? I am interested to come but I am more a dancer than a rapper, and I am wondering...?
