Edit on the date though guys. OCTOBER 5 is the due not NOVEMBER. I’ll allow only one extension if requested.CYOL CRITERIA : Due Date : November 5th!
1st place: 5 Million
2nd place: 2.5 Million
Participants: 1 million
Judges: 2 Million
- Create a label name and logo!
*Sales: which label and projects presented will sell the most:
so everyone has to PM me 5 release dates one per album, if you and another person pick the same date you’ll only get the base units... since it’s a competition y’all cancel out.based on the 2020 calendar that’s how I’ll generate sales by week.Monday dates are needed (There will be a undisclosed bonus once I get all dates)Each week represents 100,000 unitsFive straight weeks gives album gold statusBase units are 100k
*Replay value and Lengths aka Longevity: which albums will still be spun in the long run
Album length and album cohesion plays hand in hand
*Critical Acclaim: which label is likely to release classic or dope albums that garner critical acclaim
(this feature will usher in the mic system, mimicking the source magazine)
Judges and myself will deliberate and provide the mics for your drops!
*Cohesion: which label(albums) is most cohesive with artists who are complimentary
now this is where its gets tricks with an open varietyeveryone on your label needs to make sense with theme 2/3/4 (tied in themes)
*Album covers: which label has the better album covers
Good covers inhibit great promotion, what covers are aesthetically appealing and memorable
*(same person can’t be used twice as a feature, but can be as a featured on any project)
^If I chose Jz, everyone else can use him as a feature. I have sole rights to him as a main artist for the particular theme.
Thanks for participating. This is only season:1 so as it evolves the themes, features and overall play ability will change
(Draft system will reincorporated in future seasons)
Good Luck and please ask questions and give input...
Theme 1 (My Artist of choice)
Build me a Jay Z album consisting of his discography. Songs are first come first serve so two ppl can’t use ‘Song Cry’. If someone has a song u got but you didn’t submit your albums u gotta change playlists up.
Theme 2 (R&B album, your choice)
Build me a R&B album ;use who ever you want(same headline can’t be used twice,but can be as a featured as much as ppl want). Label features and producers but the album has to make sense in correlation to artist chosen...
Theme 3 (male or female duo, your choice)
Build me a Duo hip hop ;use who ever you want(same group can’t be used twice as a headline , but can be as a feature also you can pair a person with another ie prodigy x alchemist). Label features and producers but the album has to make sense in correlation to artist chosen...
Theme 4 (DJ host album, your choice)
Build me a DJ album use who ever you want. Label features and producers but the album has to make sense in correlation to artist chosen...
(Like The way DJ Khaled, Tone Touch or Dj Envy and Clue did) a DJ host can be used more than once.
Theme 5 (Fallen solider album, your choice)
Build me a posthumous album; use who want (same person can’t be used twice as a headline, but can be as a feature)
This is first come first serve so,I need clarification on a couple of these.
@ theme 2
When you say "same headline can't be used twice" , do you mean the same artist can't be used twice as the main artist? So it can't be a full Usher album, there can only be one song with Usher as the main artist?
@ theme 3
You say "same headline can't be used twice" , does that mean a different duo has to be used on every song?
Your label for this seasonWait, what do you expect to be done by the 5th?
aint no one ask questions...I think the traditional format of cyol was easier to understand and play. When all the "themes" came into it I felt it scared people away because it was so confusing.
Yeah it's all good fam and I agree, definitely next time around change the format up.aint no one ask questions...
sometimes you have to change the pace of things...
things do have to alter a little from how the IC had it...
but its all good, Ill let yall host, Ill just play along
I only switched it up because the last one didnt go so well so the change was suppose to revive the fizzling game and bring a new air to this.. thats why It was a season game anad season 2 was gonna revert to the old style but with hybrid formation...but again ppl dont always adapt to change well.Yeah it's all good fam and I agree, definitely next time around change the format up.
