Hack is Wack, y’all! Snoop Dogg + Symantec = Rap Contest On Anti-Cybercrime
By on September 4th, 2010

Fo’ shizzle under my nizzle, yo yo! Alright, alright my rapping skills are subpar in that I believe even Shakespeare with his iambic pentameter can give me a run for his money with rapping skills. But this is not about my rapping skills it’s about yours dear wannabe rapper! (Not you, Hopesh)

Snoop Dogg, the West Coast hip hop MC and protégé of Dr. Dre has teamed up with security software specialists Norton (Symantec corporation) to announce Hack is Wack! a rap video contest where users can upload their best 2 minute rap video against cybercrime. Winners get to meet SNOOP DOGG’S MANAGEMENT TEAM Y’ALL! (Also probably a Toshiba laptop).

Fo’ real mah homies!!

No, really. The internet is filled with lame attempts to capture the essence of rap in a nerdy blogpost, so you can’t really blame me for trying (and failing).

According to the SecurityWeek, the contest which runs till the 30th of this month will be quite a ball:-

“If you have the skills and bust out the phattest rap, you’ll receive round-trip airfare for two to Los Angeles along with two days and two nights hotel stay to meet with Snoop’s management and learn more about his business. You’ll also get two tickets to a Snoop Dogg concert and a new laptop pimped out with Norton Internet Security 2011.”

So… get started right away with this friendly wikihow page that tells you how to write a rap song, promote yourself, develop your own style, and more.

    That’s awesome. I’d have to give Norton credit for landing a huge star for this promotion. It’s sure to generate more buzz about their company. As for actually having an effect on cybercrime, that’s unlikely. I don’t think too many hackers will suddenly be influenced to right their ways based on some raps bashing cybercrime.
