VPC4 Round 3:

Judges Choice

It's an election year, and unless you've had your head in the sand, you've probably noticed that it's been quite a sight to behold. It is now time to provide your unique perspective on the political climate of the world. Vocalists: You must write a song with a sociopolitical theme. You can approach this from any angle: ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬, ‪#‎AllLivesMatter‬, either side of the presidential election, ‪#‎Brexit‬, etc. All topics that fall into the sociopolitical realm that you are passionate about are free game. Feel free to provide your personal thoughts and take on the issues, but keep in mind this round's vocalist technical challenge: do *not* write in the first-person perspective. Producers: Your beat must sample the national anthem of any country. It doesn't even have to be relevant to any of the topics covered lyrically. The producer's technical challenge of this round is crafting a song that is in a time signature other than 4/4. So get weird with it in order to fully satisfy the challenge requirements. The judges thought the last two challenges have been a cakewalk for you guys, time to throw ya'll a hard ass curveball.
