| January's Style Warz Winner:
The newcomers are coming out the woodwork!!! 2 months in a row first time contestants came through and smashed. Big Ups to you Big Guy. NYC was most def in the building! His man had been calling me all week telling me how nice this dude was. He came up in the spot all unassuming, chilling at the bar until it was time to take his spot on the stage. I was very impressed. I feel like everytime he got the mic, regardless of if he was feeling the beat or not....he did his thang with it. Not sure what it is about the NY swagger, but its very real. Dude had a real presence and a cocky stance that told you he could spit even before he opened his mouth. BRAVO CHAMP! See ya Next Month!
Style Warz was a lot of fun last night! Thank you to all you fine folk that attended. I didn't really get to talk to many of you...sorry about that! I hope you enjoyed yourselves. People's confidence levels are rising and I see more and more people actually incorporating moves, gestures, mannerisms and facial expressions to their presentatitons. Things are getting really good! I felt like a proud mama last night (i.e. any body got to go potty- what up, Micki ).....all of you [MCs] are really coming along. I see the love that you all show each other (even when you lose) and I see how you all actually get each others math and make plans for the future. The "future"...wow! who would have thought a few years ago that so many people would be looking forward to the future at the same time.
Big Ups to P-Funk! WOAH! I was loving the beat selections last night. You really did you thang on the 1s and 2s last night- for real! I heard no complaints...except on "Final" beat #2 .....that was crazy. Not sure how either one of those MCs rapped over that one. Big Ups to you, main!
Thank you EBONY!!! you are the greatest! If anyone needs a reliable person to man the door at your events....Please see Ebony! She is very accountible ............and good help (especially with your $$$$) is hard to find.

Since he capped off the night....Ima end this post with praise for him: VERB Its one thing to say a person can spit off the dome....its another to spit off the top for like 10 mins straight. LOL! 10 mins straight & everyone enjoyed it. Funny thing, Verb asked me for 40 seconds.... he mustof thought I was slow....LOL! That is why I told him to wait until the end....I could tell he was itchin. The need to rap is like a drug for some. I could tell as soon as he started rapping that he was in a zone. The sheer enthusiasm and joy that could be read on his face was magical. THAT IS WHY I DO THIS! For that moment in time...he looked so happy and that seemingly made everyone in the audience happy. That, my friend, is charisma. Verb had heads that were heading to the door ....turning around and coming back...as if there was a surprise act on the card...LOL! that was funny. Thank you for sharing your love for this life. If I think of anyone else ....I will follow up- FO SHO! If I forgot cha...please dont take it personally....I am only human! But i still love ya!
