Battles should be more of a celebration rather than a showdown. I am really looking forward to this musical menagerie of mc's. So far there are 6 poets entered. Sincere , Keno, Big Dice, C-Note, Kinetik Dialekt and Canaan. They are still looking for 2 more poets to enter the fray, but were told if there is still 6 on the night of "The Battle", there might be a slight change in the rules before the contest begins. If there is anyone who is more qualified to host an mc battle in Massachusetts please stand up. What can be said about Akrobatik that hasn't already been said about Akrobatik? Respected world wide lyrically by anyone who appreciates real hip hop. This should be a night to remember.
