XPO's Epsilon Chapter hosted its first annual Battle Against Cancer event last week. It was a freestyle battle among local emcees to raise money for Relay For Life. Dom and I drove up for the event and it was awesome to see such a great turnout, both with audience members and brothers.
There were 8 rounds where emcees battled to move on. The guys were far from Eminem in 8 Mile but there were a few good laughs. I remember some line about never winning a ring like Karl Malone that I found pretty funny. What I thought was crazy though was that one of the competitors, named Satellite, looked very similar to my favorite rapper, Kid Cudi.
Satellite? Or Kid Cudi?
The final battle went to an overtime with J Slick being the winner. It was close but the judges had the final decision. Overall the entire event went really well and I think everyone had a great time. Most importantly they were able to raise money for a very good cause. I know it will be even better next year and I'm definitely looking forward to it.

***On a side not, I'm not going to say who but there was a particular contestant that totally ripped material off these two real freestylers. Check out the clip for some good laughs. Enjoy!
