PE’s own Facebook Rap competition is back

2016-08-24 06:00

PE’s own rapping competition, PEGotBars, is back again with its second instalment and scouting for more local talent.

Hein Bosman, producer and PEGotBars host, officially relaunched PEGotBars2 on August 15 and the competition is open to anyone who loves to rap.

PEGotBars was created to give exposure to local talent by using a social media platform.

Contestants must choose between two beats produced by Bosman and record a rap in studio within an hour. The songs are mixed and mastered and then uploaded to SoundCloud where listeners vote for their favourite by “liking” the song.

The song that has the most “likes” by the cut-off date, wins. The artist then gets to release the track as his own.

The first competition, which ran from May 16 to July 21, saw Scott Geduld, also known as ScottyG, winning the title. Scotty G is currently working on his first album, entitled “Face of the Moon”.

Bosman said, “I was not surprised that a very cool track came out of the competition. It’s why I hosted the competition in the first place, because I knew the talent existed in PE and, if it was given the platform, it would produce.”

Bosman was overwhelmed by the community’s involvement in the first competition. “People were sharing the posts to listen to the tracks that were produced from the competition and seemed invested and interested, which is exactly what I wanted.

“I want the competition to grow with each iteration until it reaches a point where each competition produces a track that gets played on radio.”

Interested parties can listen to the two new beats at
