SESSION MC of the Month September 6, 2000
  • 360 Degrees Cypherz- Kwa-Thema
  • .Killah Claws & Infil-Traytor featuring Maradona – Benoni
  • .Biotorment & Sulferic- Thokoza
Nowadays "punch-lines" is becoming the name of the game on the Rap Activity Jam. The show was interesting first with Paul and Oscar showing their screeching skills on the desks and the presence of Cosm’ Sun Ethnic who paved the way for the real competitors of the evening.

Tonight’s show was no exception, the show saw mc’s oozing confidence raring to stamp their authority. As with the past MC of the Month, these rappers packed extra tricks up their sleeves to help them climb the most sought after throne. In this case 360 Degrees came with two extra members, Killah Claws, Infil-Traytor and Maradona and some well moulded flow and words. Biotorment & Sulferic came fully prepared and impressed us with the way they complemented each other. But the limelight belongs to the six man crew - 360 Degrees Cypherz who were crowned MC of the Month for August.
