THE SESSION
The RAP ACTIVITY was in full swing this week, when the visitors GRAHAMSTOWN rap acts and the three local acts DOWN LOW, SEEDS OF DOOM and SUPREMO sought a willing audience to tell on how to dress the wounds.

The first worthy candidate to break the stalemate was a GRAHAMSTOWN quartet which embarked on a conscious level and articulated the subject with naked passions. Because interests are varied and often contradictory, DOWN LOW dismissed the notion of keeping it deep or conscious and pursued the previously abandoned mission of aids awareness in detail, outlining the consequences of indulging in sexual intercourse without a condom.

On the contrary, SEEDS OF DOOM expanded the landscape and chose to operate wearing the complex blinkers that have come to characterize lay rappers craving for self-importance. However, SUPREMO was alert with thoughts when warning that the attempt to rise against him could only be a foolish invitation to crushing blows of fate. This man was a cut above the rest. The winner of this week's RAP ACTIVITY was SUPREMO.

    A QUICK 1 2 1 WITH THE WINNER
  • How do you feel about winning?
    I feel very great and my greatness is not based on winning. The fact that YFM is giving us a chance to rap and expand the culture, is to us a great opportunity.

  • What's your next plan
    A: I plan to hold hip-hop workshops to teach about hip-hop, poetry and breaking.

  • What's your whole perception about hip-hop
    A: I think at this moment is good but I feel that rappers need to stop degrading each other and start a support line.
