What is E.R.C.?
Deep within the Metaverse, a great contest has formed. 8,888 avatars known as Battlers have converged for the ultimate rap championship– and in this rap battle, there’s weapons.
Launching exclusively on Opensea, Epic Rap Challenge is a NFT game that fuses the art of hip hop with the love of PvP combat. Collecting your ERC-721 token NFT will be your ticket to access the game arena. (NFT Game Coming Soon)
Down in Hillside TX, a 17 year old aspiring rapper named JG gets a pair of VR shades for his birthday. He puts them on, begins to explore the far corners of the Metaverse for hours, and stumbles upon a great building with a neon microphone flashing over the top. He works his way inside and soon finds a large group of avatars, many wielding weapons, and a stage. The roar of the crowd is deafening but young JG can make out a couple of words being said from one avatar to the other. The crowd then erupts into cheers. Suddenly, one avatar on stage begins to glow a bright green light, and before the other avatar can jump off of the stage, he spontaneously combusts, screaming, with large green flames and withers into ash. JG throws off his VR shades and stares at the green light emitting from the lenses… His heart racing, he can’t deny the excitement burning inside. He reaches out, grabs them, and slides the shades back over his eyes…
Each Battler is fitted with a primary weapon, and an unlockable secondary weapon and secret power. The object of this NFT game is to crush your opponent by poetically pulverizing them. You will accomplish this by recording 4 rap bars with a 3 minute time limit. If your rhymes are better than your opponents, then watch your Battler destroy your opponent on screen. The winner is always decided by votes from the ERC community.
The best of the best players known as the GOATZ will be displayed on the ERC leaderboard. Remain on the leaderboard for 3 consecutive weeks, and something very special happens to your Battler…
“5 STEPS TO ETERNITY”
The avatar project is launched. Through strong community building, we will establish a foundation for an epic NFT game that will get better and better over time. This is not a flipper’s paradise, this is a gangster’s paradise.
Game dev begins immediately following the sale of the last remaining NFT. We have teamed up with a game development company that has been designing and launching successful games for many years. If the project has completely sold out before November 1st, we anticipate the beta version of ERC to be complete around the holidays with a full gameplay in January 2022.
The full, badass, epic trailer is released including actual gameplay scenes, the storyline, and the future look of ERC. A “Founding Family” DAO is established. These ERC pioneers will control a reserve of 22 ETH to be used for marketing/PR, community incentives, giveaways, and IRL events. Furthermore, a separate reserve of 22 ETH will be specifically established for literacy programs for children. Yes, we take children’s literacy very seriously, and we believe the true power of NFTs is the opportunity to crowd-fund for necessary change.
The first ERC Album will be created. The players that remain on the leaderboard for an extended amount of time will have the opportunity to be featured on the first ERC Album which will also feature celebrity hip hop artists. This is a big opportunity to be forever immortalized as one of the GOATZ of ERC. A merch shop will be opened to represent ERC in the real world. The game will be further developed to include play-to-earn features, further Battler customization, minigames, and a top-secret addition to the storyline and gameplay further creating a fun and rewarding game experience unlike any game out there.
ERC gets a major update to be announced in 2022. Plus, IRL Battle meet-ups in NYC, LA, ATL,and (Hillside)Dallas TX. Our goal is for ERC to be one of the most beloved NFT games ever created. We are here for the long-run and welcome you to ride along for the journey, to infinity, and beyond.
