Description

Welcome to The Bar Exam 2017 in the DMV!

May the Flow Be With You.

If you are reading this post, then that means you are interested in getting more information about The Bar Exam 2017 whether you want to be a participant, vendor, spectator, partner organization/school or are just plain nosey to see what’s what.

The Bar Exam was created for certain purposes:

  1. To raise the standard of rap, performance etiquette and musicianship in the DMV area, supporting these rappers/musicians financially as well to lead them further into their professional rap careers.

  2. Financially support and grow the brands of select partner organizations at participating institutions.

  3. Connect the entire DMV together with all of its creatives and individuals to make for a more perfect union.


Hosted by The Demo Tape, Tru 2 U Ent. and other organizations in the DMV, The Bar Exam is an intercollegiate/inter-regional cypher tournament to determine who is the best of the best in terms of rap in the DMV area (Baltimore included). The structure of the tournament will be styled after what you might have seen in old TV shows such as Dragon Ball Z with their World Tournament and Naruto’s Chunin Exams; except DMV style moe! (dummy for our Baltimore cats)


Because of all of the partner organizations and number of individuals competing, the tournament will be divided up into 5 individual places. We already have a few, but more can be added upon demand. The final venue will be announced once the individual battles are complete.


The tournament will span the school semester of Fall 2017 in the DMV and starts from the time of this post (9/27/2017) and is slated to end Saturday, 11/11/2017. Expansion beyond this date will be revised according to demand and other stipulations, but this time range will stick for the most part. After the Final round, there is a cash prize of $500, a publishing deal for the winner, and more prizes and connections to elevate their career like never before.


Registration as a rapper contestant, vendor at the event to sell your brand, and spectator is a short process. We also have opportunities for organizations/individuals wanting to sponsor, partner, volunteer, or make money for themselves. Here is the general information for each group.


Rappers:

  • The general participating fee for rappers in the competition is $10 per individual rapper. It becomes non-refundable once the battle that you signed up for is over. This fee grants you participation, marketing and career assistance by The Demo Tape and its partners, and more benefits to elevate your career. Everyone essentially wins.

  • NOT ALLOWED: Weapons, foul play by tampering with other contestants, or throwing a violent tantrum when losing.

  • You have the opportunity for what we call “Redemption” in which you are able to try your luck at another venue if you lose; depending on certain conditions.

  • More information can be given once you sign up or by contacting The Demo Tape at contact@thedemotape.com.



Vendors:

  • The general participating fee for rappers in the competition, unless otherwise specified, is $40 per individual vendor. It becomes non-refundable once the battle that you signed for is over. This fee grants you the ability to sell your merchandise, products, or services at the venue with whatever price you wish. You can easily make the money that you spent back.

  • NOT ALLOWED: Weapons, foul play by tampering with other contestants, promoting criminal activity, scamming spectators and artists out of their money.

  • More information can be given once you sign up or by contacting The Demo Tape at contact@thedemotape.com.


Spectators:

  • The general participating fee for spectators in the competition is a flat fee of $3 per individual person. It becomes non-refundable once the battle that you signed for is over. You are able to view, participate in the voting process, and gain access to all of the vendors’ materials and networking at the venues.

  • Some institutions, such as Bowie State University, do not require a spectator fee, so you may get lucky.

  • NOT ALLOWED: Weapons, fighting, foul play by tampering with other contestants, promoting criminal activity, and more of the like.

  • More information can be given once you sign up or by contacting The Demo Tape at contact@thedemotape.com.


Partner Organizations/Individuals Wanting To Assist:

  • If you are a registered student organization at a college institution anywhere in the DMV that would be interested in hosting a battle at your institution, send an email as soon as possible at contact@thedemotape. Your organization has the opportunity to make $90-$200 from the partnership. If you are outside of a college institution but are still an organization that would be interested in hosting, the same rules still apply. If you are not an organization of any sort, but you KNOW of an organization that fits the parameters and they officially sign on, you will receive $40 from the leaders of The Bar Exam series.

  • If you would like to volunteer for the opportunity in any way (as a judge, producer wanting to get their music shared, videographer/photographer trying to get their clout up), send an email to contact@thedemotape.com

  • If you are an individual who would like to donate or sponsor the series in any way so that these types of events may continue, send an email to contact@thedemotape.com
