SESSION August 9, 2000 – MC of the Month
This week’s RAP ACTIVITITY mc of the month was generous almost to a fault, pitched into a crisis of battle hysteria and marked with a solid mission of creative satire. Rolling with the punches were HIP-HOP ANGELS, FERNANDO and SUPREMO, three acts who managed to hold down the final despite the absence of the fourth contender N.B.J. In their stampede of a mic brawl, HIP-HOP ANGELS successfully struck a wired version of good skills and good combination between them. FERNANDO refused to kowtow and denied any temptations of contracting the contagious disease of English. The man was just glad to stick to his Angolan native language. SUPREMO, the winner of mc of the month, turned the show into his fiefdom, calling shots and filling hip-hop barns with punch lines. His style of rap was passionate and fully inspired.
