Emerging Rappers Showcase Their Skills On Rolling Loud's "Got Bars?"

Dec 082020

Monster Energy is fueling its fourth season of Got Bars?, a high-octane freestyle competition in partnership with Rolling Loud that gives amateur artists the opportunity to elevate their careers by competing live against their peers. Judged by series co-founder Tariq Cherif, Rolling Live’s DJ Five Venoms, and a new guest judge each week, the livestream contest (airing exclusively on Twitch every Wednesday from 8 to 9 pm ET) features 4 aspiring rappers facing off in each episode, showing off their skills in lyricism, cadence, and sheer charisma. Each “LoudStream” features appearances by Monster Energy artists like Statik Selektah and swag giveaways by special guest hosts such as superstar influencer Jenesis Giselle

The competition consists of four 4-week long audition periods, with the winner of each audition period advancing to the finals. The winner scores a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform at Rolling Loud, the largest hiphop festival in the world. Artists who think they’ve got what it takes can text a video to 305-745-7125 with the hashtag #IGotBars. For more info, check out
