WHAT: VIBE readers will be given the opportunity to decide who’s the best rapper in the game as VIBE Presents the “The Best Rapper Alive” competition. This interactive, NCAA-style tournament will pit the top 64 MCs recording today against each other in a head-to-head battle.
VIBE.com will host the tournament with winners of each match-up being determined by fan votes online. VIBE readers can also fill out the brackets provided on page 103 of the August 2008 REAL RAP ISSUE and mail in to cast their vote.
Each round will last one week and the winner of each match-up will be announced on VIBE.com. At the end of five weeks, a king or queen will be crowned, and the champion will be announced in VIBE’s November 2008 issue.
