The purpose of the project is to promote and connect spoken music artists in the MIT Community. We're expecting Rap and Spoken Word artists to submit. Singing, vocal loops, spoken word, or conversation are all welcome. A dance song with a single vocal sample of “Stop!” would also be considered as fitting the scope of this project.
