HOW DOES GOAT WORK?

GOAT

Introduction

GOAT is an iOS mobile app (Android version coming in Fall 2017) where music artists can compete fairly against each other to decide who will be Greatest Of All-Time. We believe that popular voting is the true decider of popular music. To maximize fairness,  we designed GOAT to ensure a song’s success is determined entirely by the music, and not by outside factors such as familiarity, social influence or attractiveness.

We believe the top talent should rise to the top, as chosen by the people.

Getting Started

When GOAT launches in Summer 2017, you can download GOAT from the App Store to battle other artists (Android version coming in Fall 2017). Go to the Main Menu and select Upload New. You can import your music from Soundcloud or Dropbox.

Select a genre for each upload to make sure your music competes against similar genres.

Battles

A battle is a single match-up between any two songs. After uploading your music and buying tokens, tap the Battle screen and select either Challenge or Tournament:

  • Challenge – A series of battles against a single opponent, either someone you choose or a random opponent (minimum of 5 battles)

  • Tournament – A series of battles against multiple opponents. Join an existing tournament or create your own (minimum of 20 battles)

Each battle is decided by a voter who listens to both songs to determine the winner. The match up is blinded, meaning the voter does know the name of the artist or see any visual clues, such as album art. Song credentials are revealed after the vote is cast.

GOAT Score

After each battle, our algorithm calculates a signature rating for each song, called the GOAT Score™. It is a measurement of voter popularity and how much your song is preferred over others. You also have an overall GOAT Score™ that is a weighted average of your individual song scores.

The GOAT Score™ is the most important feature of GOAT. It determines your exposure and success. The higher your score, the higher you will be ranked on the Leaderboard, where the world will be looking for the next big star.

Leaderboards

GOAT was made to find the greatest artists in the world. The entire voting, competition, and scoring process is used find the most popular artists to feature on the Leaderboard.

Go to the in Discover screen to explore artists and songs ranked by their GOAT Scores™ only. A song needs a minimum of 100 battles per month, and artists, a minimum of 300 battles per month to be on the Leaderboard.

GOAT is the most advanced, talent rating system in history. When people come to check out GOAT talent, they know they’re checking out the best talent.

Rewards

We created GOAT with one goal in mind—to build a platform that would create jobs for talented musicians. That is why, at the end of each month, GOAT will offer 10% of its total revenue for that month to the top 100 artists (in terms of GOAT Score rank) in exchange for the rights to host their music on our playlists.

When we reach 10 million customers, we will be able to provide, on average, over 10,000 artists with a monthly income equal to the average American salary of $3,769 per month. That is why we are proud to call GOAT “a revolution”. It will provide unprecedented opportunities for talented artists.

Tokens

You need tokens to battle others and grow your GOAT Score™.  Each battle costs one token.
There are three ways to acquire tokens:

  1. Purchase tokens by tapping Buy Tokens in the Main Menu. Decide the best token bundle for you. Tokens bundles can be purchased based on how often you’d like to compete:

    • 50 battles – $4.99

    • 150 battles – $9.99

    • 500 battles – $19.99

    • 1250 battles – $39.99

    • 5000 battles – $99.99

  2. Earn tokens by voting on other match-ups

    • PRO TIP: Each vote you cast earns one token.

  3. Win tokens by wagering them in battles against other opponents.

    • Take tokens wagered by winning the challenge

    • In tournament play, the Top 50 GOAT Scores™ will split the winnings pool of tokens.

All tokens are kept in your Treasury and cannot be exchanged for  cash money or prizes. The gold icon at the top left of your screen shows how many tokens are left in your Treasury.

Networking

GOAT is more than a rating system. It’s a social network. Talented artists want to find people who love their work. People want to find talented artists whose work they love. We made GOAT its own world, where people could communicate, share, and discover greatness in the easiest and most expressive way possible.

Your profile is where the GOAT world learns about you. When you create your account, add a profile and cover photo just like all of the social networks you’re used to. You can personalize your profile and connect your social media presence to your GOAT account, so new fans and old can follow you easily.

Your profile can be personalized and will show your competitive performance and voting history.  You will be able to see stats including your win-loss record, tournament trophies, token winnings and how many votes you’ve cast.

  • Chat – Connect with others directly by sending them personal messages

  • Arsenal -Your personal playlist of original music that you can import from Dropbox or SoundCloud to be entered into Challenges and Tournaments, or streamed by users through your profile

  • History – Your competitive performance and voting history will be calculated and displayed

  • Bio – Let the world know more about who you are and what you believe in

  • Events – This feature lets you create a calendar of events to share with your friends, such as upcoming concerts or shows

While our main priority is music quality, it’s always important to build your profile, social media presence, and brand. Your GOAT Score™ can only be helped by polished branding and social media presence.

The World Is Yours.

GOAT was created by struggling artists and for struggling artists. It was created to give people a chance; a chance to actually be successful, to be recognized and rewarded for the years of hard work they put into their craft. GOAT is for the strivers, the dyed-in-the-wool believers. The dream chasers who refuse to “get the picture”. The road to success is long and full of doubt. But finally, there is hope for us.

GOAT is not just a mobile app that hosts tournaments. GOAT is an invention that will change the face of the earth. No longer will talentless people be placed upon the throne of greatness simply because they had a cousin who once dated a man that delivered mail to Madonna’s uncle. No longer will people of talent be denied the chance to prove their abilities to the world. GOAT is a machine. It has no cousin. It doesn’t…

Black Cross: The Rule Of Two

Screenshot (16)
The Rule of Two” by Black Cross

Black Cross: An intelligent, musically intuitive, independent Hip-Hop group based out of West Palm Beach, Florida.  They established themselves by releasing the Black Cross EP on 12/13/2014, before releasing the preeminent The Rule of Two mixtape exactly one year later, on 12/13/2015. Currently, the core of Black Cross consists of the unabashed Hail Medik and the mysterious Wes VanStyles.

Wes VanStyles: also known as Gnarly & Young Voorhees, is originally from Reading, PA but now resides in West Palm Beach, FL . In this small Pennsylvanian city, crime ran rampant. Fortunately for Wes, he escaped the dead-end life of crime by moving to south Florida in his late teens.

When he arrived to the Sunshine State, he began rapping on a bet from an old Reading, PA friend. Though Wes listened to hip hop his whole life, he had never attempted to write or rap with much conviction. But once he did, he found that he thoroughly enjoyed it. Wes was first put on to some recording sessions with a man known as “Harry-O”. Harry showed Wes the ropes and Wes VanStyles, AKA Gnarly, AKA Young Voorhees, still seeks advice from Harry-O to this day.

Wes kept at it and met Randall Bryce, AKA Hail Medik, at an internship where he discovered Randall’s music-producing talents. Through the next few years Randall and Wes formed a musical partnership which was joined shortly thereafter by The Real B.i., Hail Medik (Randall) and Gnarly (Wes) soon released their first collaborative piece, the introductory Black Cross EP featuring The Real B.i., R.A.A.S., and Kooley C.

 

The Night

Track 16 on ‘The Rule of Two’ 

 

Hail Medik: Representing Montclair, NJ, Randall Bryce is a self-described “musical juggernaut” with an ambitious and undoubtedly bright future. The offspring of two musicians, his ability and passion for music are his birthright. He began composing beats at the age of 14 and began rapping after being challenged by another rapper on an online Hip-Hop battle message board. The competitive Hip-Hop environment combined with his diverse upbringing in New Jersey helped build the foundation for what would eventually become his Hip-Hop alter-ego, Hail Medik.

A defining moment for Randall’s creative development occurred in 2005, at the age of 17 when he moved to West Palm Beach, FL with his dad.  It was living with his musician father (R.A.A.S) where he discovered early Hip-Hop influences and honed his technique for composing beats.  His father had always been an avid freestyler and would encourage the young artist to freestyle every chance he could.  Through their time living together, Hail Medik developed a unique identity and transitioned from Hip-Hop fan, to Hip-Hop ARTIST.

Hail Medik met The Real B.i. in 2007 through mutual friends and they bonded over a shared love for music and video games. Recognizing and admiring each other’s skills, the pair started writing Hip-Hop tracks together, envisioning a joint mixtape called “Video Game”.  Unwittingly, the duo had begun to set the framework for Black Cross.  It was in 2012 that Hail met Gnarly, who would prove to be the motivating piece that completed the Black Cross puzzle. Gnarly’s methodical work ethic and insatiable ambition helped the group realize and pursue its full potential.

Their combination of differing styles, confidence, and lyrical ability set them apart from the vast majority of current rappers who attempt to benefit from leveraging a gimmick. Black Cross is not a group of rappers, it’s a group of Hip-Hop ARTISTS with a lot of passion and a lot to prove.
