Kill the Verse: Rap Competition w/ GSE's Tha Captin'

Ended 1 year ago!

Launching our Kill the Verse competition as a way to help independent artists grow their fan base through collaborations with established regional acts,  Makin' It Magazine has officially secured GSE's Tha Captin as our first act.

First Discovering Tha Captin's music in late 2013, we booked him on several stages during SxSW, where he left a lasting impression on event promoters. Cultivating an organic fan base throughout Tennessee and the surrounding states, his last mixtape "Million Dollar Wrist Game", earned him consistent Merch and CD sales while his booking rate hit up to $3,200 per show.

Now campaigning with his latest mixtape, "Big Ball Cappin", we've gotten the go ahead to find an artist to feature on his forthcoming single "Bring My N**** Back". Originally released on the mixtape with only one verse, the overwhelming response from DJs has prompted the record to be released as an official single.

Being tapped to help promote the single, we decided to use this opportunity to help another dope independent artist. To participate in competition, just follow the instructions below:
