Farma G’s festive 5 Word Freestyle Challenge touched down in East London again this week and with it came everything that Wordplay Magazine loves about the UK Hip Hop scene; dangerously clever lyricism, vibes a plenty, alcoholic beverages of every single shape and size, massive fuck off zut smoking circles and live PA’s to kill for. Special shout outs have to go to Dirty Dike, Jam Baxter and DJ Sammy B who almost took the ceiling off during their stage show at the Villain Bar.
Aside from the positive vibes that can always be found at any Task Force bashment, it is fair to say that the calibre of entrants this time round was just about as good as it has ever been. Notably, a dope face off in the semi finals between Team Hate compatriots Enlish and Stig Of The Dump. After a Punchline heavy face off Stig deservedly took one slot in the final. Stig was closely followed by Row D to make up the final two and after a closely fought battle, it was decided that an acapella round would have to be introduced to set the rappers apart.
Wordplay would like to extend a million big ups to Stig Of The Dump for taking the crown and with it 150 pounds sterling to splash on champagne bubbly.
SEE YOU NEXT TIME…
