There was this amazing rap tournament a while back.

Not obscure so much as ones we didn't include in this tourney. Wasn't really serious about another tourney - just pointing out that there are a lot of incredible covers in this thread, many could have been major contenders in the tournament.

It's been a lot of fun - really appreciate your efforts, Swirls!

I'd be happy to do a 2nd Edition covers tourney later on in the season, or one of the other ideas. No songs allowed from the first iteration.

Also I think it should be a mandatory rule that Kincaid has to enter at least one song in the tourney.

Stunning. It's a powerful answer to cultural appropriation.

Still a rule?

Fun to revisit this thread. I suspect we'll see a few of these in the tourney - unfortunately, I didn't remember to do that before submitting this year.

I don't really look outside the baseball forum much so I didn't see there was another tournament going on until it had started, but I do enjoy seeing the songs everyone submitted.
