Cali Rappers Organize Scene Vs. Scene Battle

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

foam hand.

The promoters have put a poll on their website , allowing locals

from the area to vote for the best emcees and b-boys to represent the area.
