Thank you everyone that came out and partied with us last night. Those of you that didnt make it for what ever reason...missed a funky good time. I must say, Ms Tris Beats presence was really missed. This job sh*t has got to stop. j/k get that money gurl!!!
For the most part, everyone played by the rules.....MCs are starting to get that they are supposed to perform a verse and hook. Some of the rounds were played better than others...but everyone definitely came prepared to spit. I too heard some rhymes being repeated twice (*this was one of the chief complaints about the last round), BUT hey...there is no rule against doing so.
To our judges for the night:
Reese of Major Noise Recordings
Rome of Sounds in the Hood (Record Store @ Edmondson and Monroe Streets)
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR FAIR ASSESSMENT OF LAST NIGHT'S PERFORMANCES. WE APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE TIME OUT TO COME AND BE PART OF STYLE WARZ. WE ARE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR GENEROSITY OF TIME AND SPIRIT.
BIG UPS TO THE WINNER:
SHAKEEN THE ANALYST (Bulldog Kartel)
He really did his thing last night. I was so proud of him. He is one of the MCs that has competed numerous times and came back everytime having stepped his game up another notch everytime.

You all are helping to make this event one of Baltimore's premier entertainment attractions. I don't think last night was one of the better battles....and honestly...im not worried about that. My main focus has been to get the participants to play by the rules and finding judges that have the balls to enforce them. That happened the last 2 Style Warz. Now...that we got that out the way...maybe some of you so called "better MCs" will get tired of seeing someone who you think sucks win the money and prizes. The prize packages will be gettin bigger in the future. Free clothes, gift certificates, bigger pots....are all coming!!!! So if you spit hotter than everyone in Baltimore....come prove it!!! LOL! All in all ...great night!!! Thanks for coming!
HIP HOP LIVES!!! WATCHOUT NOW!!!!
