Freestyle Mondays… GO HARD or GO HOME!!!!

So this past Monday, a friend invited me to a bar in West Village that host a freestyle battles every Monday.  I was 100% stoked when he told me.  Since New York has produced some of the finest MC’s that has ever graced the mic, I knew I was in for a treat.  I was all prepared to hear some amazing flows and laugh at the punch lines.

The event is held at 116 MacDougal, a small underground (this excited me more) venue near West 4th street.  It was only a 5$ cover, but their is an open bar from 10:30 to 11:30, which made my night!  What was even more impressive about this freestyle battle is the contestant spit over a live band and they spin a wheel and whatever category it lands on that has to be the topic of the freestyle.  Hosted by iLLspoKinN & Mariella, I knew I was in for a good time.

Now I told you all before I do not judge performers, but I will say that some of these MC’s were dope and others made me laugh at them (instead of with them)!  I wish I could of say I saw some raw NYC talent, but a couple of people were more like raw Nebraska talent!  Whatever the case, the band was dope and the hosts kept me entertained, so overall it was a good time.  For more information on the event and/or  if you are a MC looking for a practice venue, check out there website by clicking here.

Until next time kiddos!!!
