View Full Version : Hip-Hop Ukulele Video Contest

I'm holding my very first contest. I'm going to make a video about it this week, but I'm opening it up to my UU peeps first, so you guys can get a heads-up.

First prize will be a re-Deached tenor cigar box ukulele with pick-up from Papa's Boxes (http://www.papasboxes.com/). This thing is awesome. It was given to me by Deach a while ago, and I love playing it. I'll be sad to see it go, but it's time to spread the love.

Here are the rules:


Make a video of yourself playing a hip-hop/rap song. It can be a cover or an original.


An ukulele must be at least one of the instruments used.


An ukulele must be seen in the video.


The video must be made specifically for this contest.


Introduce yourself and say, "This is my entry for Seeso's Hip-Hop Ukulele Video Contest on Ukuleleunderground.com" at the beginning of the video.


Post a link to your entry in a reply to this thread.


You can enter up to three videos for the contest.


The contest will be judged on entertainment value only. Technical expertise may help, but it will not be given the highest priority. This means beginners are more than welcome to enter!


Contest ends on June 30th, 2009.


Have fun!


Pictures of the ukulele are attached to this post.

Good question. Yes, you can use a capella tracks. I wouldn't encourage it, however. Let's just say if you do the vocals yourself, you'll stand a much better chance at winning.

Three classic hip hop crossovers to get peoples juices flowing while stuck at work in their cubicals..... :wallbash:

Sir Mix A Lot's Baby got Back (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dF3-_GTENqY) - Uke Style

Dynamite Hack's Easy E cover (once you get past the intro) - Boyz N Da Hood (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQVLNQPs2o4)

My favorite: !!! - Get up (Nate Dogg cover) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVU5UwLyDXw)


Can you enter more than one video? I'm writing something here at work but I want to do a cover too.

D'oh! I only just got the hang of reggae, now hip hop? MMMmmm 'Hip hop thru the tulips...' It might just work - i can see myself slowly doing an album of improbable covers of tiptoe!

Wow what a generous thing to do, it's real hard to give away an instrument, like watching your kids leave home!

Here are a trio of love songs to Hip Hop.

Common - I Used To Love H.E.R. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y12YgEIFcAY)

Erykah Badu - Love of My Life (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4b7kWf6nXkc)

The Roots feat. Common - Act too (Love of my life) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjIcga4Afrg)

PoisonDart
05-18-2009, 06:30 PM
First video! (i think)

A cover with 4 tracks, 1 synth for strings and drums, rythm concert ukuele, accompaniment bari ukulele, me singing.

I know most of the props are for entertainment value, so consider the poorly edited video to be the entertainment, I was surprised it even rendered, most of my videos haven't lately.

Blame it on the Alcohol (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNWZ-qWf6RE)

You're the first entry! Great song choice and video! This contest is going to be fun. Thanks for entering!

It's not a big deal, but if you enter again, make sure you say "seeso's hip hop ukulele video contest on ukuleleunderground.com" at the beginning. Part of the reason for having this contest is to spread the word about UU!

That is pretty funny. I know a couple of his songs, yes.

I wouldn't call him the Weird Al of rap, though. To me, that title goes to MC Frontalot. His stuff is full of nerdiness and a fair dose of humor.

However, they're both awesome.:shaka:

So, once again I realise I have neglected to introduce myself at the start of the video so accept automatic disqualification. I'm not in it to win it, I like the challenge.

Here's my entry: Eye Know (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV7jMZkBOcQ) by De La Soul from the 1989 album, Three Feet High and Rising.

I bought this album new in 1989 (£5.99!) and picked this particular track because I thought it might give me two birds for one stone: Eye Know by De La Soul and Peg by Steely Dan - the sample on which the De La Soul version is based. The lyrics are harder in Eye Know; the chords are harder in Peg.

I ended up layering this in Audacity (which crashes every five minutes and is virtually unusable but, hey, it's free). It gave me the opportunity to embellish it a bit but it means the video is supplementary. It also gave me the opportunity to whistle again. Roger Whittaker (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuC6e8NHM9s) need not be concerned.

Damn, this is just great! I hadn't thought of doing something Daisy Age. Perhaps I'll try some Arrested Development, or there's Disposable Heroes (hardly Daisy Age I know), and then there's lots of Acid Jazz stuff that would work. I was restricting myself too much thinking only of real old-skool.

Anyway, got yerself a subscriber.

Seeso, this is like the biggest coincidence ever... I was working on "I was stabbed by Satan" for the last 1 1/2 month or so and I wanted to dedicate it to you... well, today I shot a video of it on my brand new Pono Mango Tenor and I dedicated it to you. When it was uploaded, I saw a recommendation for the Wavin Flag cover and found this contest because of it... I swear that was a higher might...


It was not meant to be an entry, but I hope you'll like it anyway!

Straight off, I would say no. Rihanna and Beyonce are R&B/Pop to me. But that doesn't mean that you can't cover one of their songs and give it a hip hop vibe. Maybe you can rap the lyrics instead of sing them? I don't know.

Give it a shot!

everyone has great entries, but i think the best hip-hop ukulele song on the web is seesos. it is soooooooo catchy and i love it. he plays the uke for the melody in the song, and also sings the chorus. great song, my friend:)


the rap is also catchy too

Singing a rap was harder than I thought it would be- The Gourds made it look so easy!

Damn, I just realized you can't see the uke in this video, I guess I'll have to re-do it...

So I came across Seeso's YouTube video about this post when researching Ukulele's for buying my first one, but never imagines it was still active! I've only had my uke for a day, but I'm trying to learn a song for this! My friends want to do an epic video, but I don't know if that will happen or I'll end up doing something on the webcam on the last day, but I'm definitely going to try and enter. This site has already been enormously helpful just in selecting a uke and learning some basics. :)

Awesome contest. Should be a lot of fun! And to Captain Google, one of the first things I thought about was "It is Pitch Black" by MC Frontalot! Not what I selected, but I may try and pick it up too! I'm so excited, I've already fallen in love with the instrument, it's fantastic.
