Posted by NerdyShow on April 30, 2011

Spiraling out of the smash-success cross-genre fighting game Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: The Fate of Two Worlds, Nerdy Show has launched an epic remix contest featuring some of the hottest names in nerd rap.  Specializing in video games: MegaRan (aka Random), 8-Bit Duane, and My Parent’s Favorite Music. And specializing in comic book inspired raps: Adam WarRock, The Wordburglar, and Tribe-One. Remixers are challenged to create battle-ready beats sampling from either Marvel or Capcom music.  Sources can come from TV themes, movie scores and soundtracks, video games – any audio source pertaining to either franchise. The prize?  Beginning with MegaRan and Adam WarRock the rappers will select their favorite beats and create an original rap over YOUR track!  When the dust clears, one legendary 6-track mixtape will be left standing!

Nerdy Show has hosted remix and original music contests in the past, such as their Astronautalis-headlined Tetris Rap Attack and their DC Comics-inspired Blackest Night Song Fight.

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is one of the most anticipated releases to hit this year. You’ve torn up the tourneys, you’ve snatched up the DLC, what next? While the greatest heroes and villains have decided the “fate of two worlds” there’s another battle brewing on ours. Nerd rap’s finest video game and comic-loving rhyme-spitters are on the warpath and their clash will be the stuff of legend. In the video game corner: MegaRan, 8-Bit Duane, and My Parent’s Favorite Music. In the comic book corner: Adam WarRock, The Wordburglar, and Tribe-One. They’re sharpening their tongues for a vicious brawl. But if they’re really gonna bring it, they’re gonna need the illest war drums imaginable. Do YOU have what it takes to craft the most brutal, battle-ready comic book and video game beats?

THE CHALLENGE Nerdom needs YOU to become the ultimate beatsmith. Craft a beat sampling from the virtually endless library of potential Marvel and Capcom-based music. There’s original Capcom game scores but there’s also the scores video games based on Marvel Comics, and the scores to movies and tv series, or other media based on either Marvel or Capcom. Your beats could be funny, they could be brutal – any style is appropriate! Above all, these beats must be awesome and only sample from either Marvel Comics or Capcom-based material.
