YouTube is taking reality off the television and onto the Internet. The website has just announced a contest beginning this Friday called YouTube "OnTheRise" Rap Edition, which invites unsigned, undiscovered talent to show off their skills by uploading their own music videos to the contest. 50 Cent, Common and Polow da Don will judge the submissions and select 20 finalists for an August 29 YouTube community vote.
The winner will be announced on Friday, September 7. Hopeful rappers are encouraged to upload their videos beginning August 10, with only seven days to apply. Start filming and check the official website, You Tube On the Rise, for more information.
