A group of rappers and breakers from San Jose
will battle rappers from the Bay Area on Saturday, October 19. The idea is the
brain child of a San Jose promoter witnessed a group of local rappers freestyling
and contacted people about a "scene vs. scene" battle.
The event, titled Sick N' Tired 2 will take place
at The Gallery in San Jose, at 7 P.M. The battle is billed as "The Bay
Vs. Central Cali."
"It's going to show the talent that lies
in between the Bay Area and Los Angeles," one of the organizers, Sam Hansen
told the Fresno Bee. "It shows that there's a growing scene here and that
we're hungry, and we want our recognition. This is the perfect opportunity."
People who want to attend the event can ride
on a bus charted by the promoters. A bus ticket will cost $37, which covers
the trip, admission to the event, an event T-shirt and a souvenir Central Cali
The promoters have put a poll on their website
www.centralcali.com , allowing locals
from the area to vote for the best emcees and b-boys to represent the area.
