Build-A-Label: 2.0 Discussion (Part 1) 

Post#1 » by Greenie » Sun Apr 30, 2017 11:48 pm

1- Greenie (Commish)
2- Phish Tank (Commish)
3- 3toheadmelo (Commish)
4- Mecca
5- IllmaticHandler
6- spree8
7- Manhattan Project
8- Knicksfan20
9- Slicin n dicin
10- Fury
11- ctorres
12- Smash3
13- HEZI

Rules:

- 15 round snake draft

- Hip-Hop, Rap and R&B only. Of the 15 selections, 7 rappers, 3 singers, & 1 producer must be taken. You have 4 additional picks you can make and can choose any of the three.

-Groups are not allowed to be picked if any of the members of the group released a solo project. However, if a group has members that did not release a project, you are allowed to draft that group as a selection. The same applies to producer groups as well

-Most importantly, there's a 6 hour time limit between picks. If you are not able to make a pick, please PM Phish, Greenie, or Melo in advance. If the time limit passes, then your turn will be skipped.

- Clock stops between 12am and 8am. If you are in the clock starting at 9pm that means you have until 11am the following morning to make your pick.

Brainstorming some ideas about groups (it'll be a bit disorganized, but you'll get it):

1) We should allow groups to be picked from the outset
2) Groups are all-or-nothing (including any producers)
3) However, groups should be separated into different tiers
4) For example, choosing Mobb Deep or Public Enemy or Roots is gonna be different than say a Wu-Tang or a Fugees
5) If you pick Wu-Tang, then you'd have to skip or give up your next two picks (or something along that nature)
6) Common sense should be taken with regards to groups. You can't pick Watch The Throne for example
7) Groups need to have a minimum album release requirement to be picked.

I don't know.
Maybe we should "black list some groups".
Drafting groups from the jump sounds good to me. All or nothing sounds good to me as well.

Also, I don't mind allowing all groups into play to be quite honest. It adds a new layer. Wu Tang was nice but we can still build a label better. How good you music knowledge is, is the name of the game.

Agree with blacklisting (i.e. you can't pick Odd Future or Watch The Throne or Dungeon Family, etc.)

I think all groups is a good idea too. I just think to level out the playing field, if you choose a larger group, you should waive your pick. If you pick a Wu-Tang, you'd have like a 50 rapper advantage over everyone else :lol:
