What is Kill The Pad Challenge?
Kill The Pad challenge is a weekly topical text based rap competition for SBD. Why am I starting a text based rap initiative? We have many creative writers in the hip hop community. One doesn't have to get onto the mic to show their prowess with lyricism. This will benefit the less experienced and the more experienced alike. Topicals are always a good exercise. It's all about elevating together, learning from each other, and growing as an artist.
This challenge is sponsored by the SMA. If you are a musician, singer, song writer, rapper, or musically inclined in any way, head over there and connect with other musicians! An invite button is at the bottom of the post.
This contest is made with help of @dsound so I can not thank enough for this beautiful initiative. Dsound is a platform connected to Steemit that allows you to upload your music and sounds in a similar fashion like Soundcloud. Make sure to join Dsound Discord channel here.

This weeks topic is: Oh so lonely
Write a verse about what you do when you are alone. Could be as in depth as you like. Could be about how you feel about being alone, if you enjoy your own company over others, etc.
1st place winner = 3 SBD + 20 Points in Steem Music League
2nd place winner = 2 SBD + 15 Points in Steem Music League

Remember, this is a rap competition. While most rap can be considered poetry, most poetry wouldn't be considered rap. If you are a poet, don't worry, do what you do. I will try to leave critiques for every entry and let you know what could be improved upon, if anything.
DO NOT POST LYRICS ON THIS PAGE. Please put them in your own post and the just post the link here. Thanks!!
