Tomorrow: Emcee Battle at the Blue Cafe
Starving MCs listen up. There are few times in an average week when you could earn a grip of cash doing what you would usually be doing at home. In this case, Blue Cafe in Long Beach is beckoning the areas most confident, quick-witted lyricists to quit rhyming in front of the bedroom mirror and put their skills to the test on stage. Tomorrow night, this downtown Long Beach hangout is hosting a hip hop concert/battle including opening performances by Copy Write, one of Virginia's most viable vanilla rhyme slangers, along with LA hip hop crew Thirsty Fish and many more. At stake is a $150 prize for whoever has the perfect trifecta of timing, charm and 'yo mama' jokes in their arsenal to come out on top. This should be plenty of incentive for you to finally throw away that cardboard "WILL RAP 4 FOOD" sign and go earn some real dough.
