I'm a rapper/songwriter and entrepreneur and I recently got a website idea, however, I have very little experience with website creation and coding. I need a highly experienced website designer who can make me a rap battling website. Preferably someone from the USA with experience in rap/hip hop as well, but NOT a requirement.
The site should be similar to www.letsbeef.com, yet unique. I want there to be CASH rap battles, (1 vs. 1) and tourneys, with an entry fee and cash prize. Here's some features in mind for the site:
Text/written battles - rappers would write 8, 16, or 32 bar verses and compete against one (or more) rappers of similar skill. As they start winning battles (and $) they move up in the ranks and get more experienced and established opponents.
Audio battles: rappers would record their lyrics for the battle over a beat and compete against one ore more rappers.
Voting system: I want the site's community (including other rappers) to vote on the rap battles to decide upon the winner. For every vote a site member makes, they would receive 1 point toward putting up or entering THEIR battles! Would need to vote on 5 battles in order to post or enter one of their own.
Freeroll rap battle tourneys: once a week there would be a FREE rap battle tournament -- prize pool of $50, divided among the top 3. It would be 1vs1 knockout/process of elimination. These freeroll rap battles would bring in traffic to the site, generate a buzz, and hook people.
Similarly to poker sites, I want there to be a small fee (10%) of all cash entries, that goes to the site. Therefore, if the buy-in to a 1vs1 tourney was $10, it would be $11.
There will be a limit of 20 cash battles per month per member -- there will be a monthly membership for people who want UNLIMITED entries--and they'll get other features that are yet to be decided upon.
The site's URL will be cashbattles.com
IMPORTANT: IF YOU CAN DO THIS PROJECT, PLEASE GIVE ME AS MUCH DETAIL AS POSSIBLE IN YOUR BID. ALSO, INCLUDE THE PHRASE: CASH BATTLES SOMEWHERE IN YOUR BID, SO I KNOW YOU READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION!!
I may message you here on Freelancer to talk details via Skype. I have lots more ideas and details than what's listed above.
