SESSION August 16, 2000
  • Tri-Adger from Orange Farm
  • Zygod & X.Scroll from Thokoza
  • Immortal Poets & Blindfold from Reiger Park
  • Biotorment And Sulfuric from Thokoza
No matter which side of the fence they jumped off, this week’s rap acts were bound to excite the envy of the less fortunate ones. Like a baby cutting its first teeth, Rap Activity was so sweet you could drink from the cup of immortal waters of serious rap lines and powerful flows. Psychonic was the first to pack his rounds, shooting straight from the heart and giving out new infection of a flawless flow. The man knew his mission like the back of his hand. 

Thoughts are mixed and adjectives often used to describe Immortal Poets are still enigmatic. These boys have found a road among us to reach, a road never travelled before, the road of expressing themselves in the simple infectious way. They have a talent like you can’t believe. Zygod & X.scroll were also instrumental but his partner was playing games on the microphone, cooking porridge with mud. This week’s winner Biotorment & Sulferic were equally great, they too held their own and compressed a few lines into sharp blows.
