If you missed the finals of the Generation NXT Open Mic Challenge this past Sunday night, you missed out some great talent in Jackson, MS. Everyone that took the stage came hard and performed with high energy and plenty of stage presence. There was so much variety in the music that was performed, that I’m sure there was something for everyone in the crowd to vibe with. Whether the subject was turning up, throwing bands, smoking good weed, repping the city or telling some of the darker tales that take place in this cold world; every artists brought his/her A Game.
Kamikaze and Soul Wired Cafe should definitely be applauded for taking out the time to create such a great event for the city. Another round of applause goes to the talent that is constantly working and building to reach greater heights as artists. That pure, raw energy is what it’s going to take to get eyes and ears captivated and begin building support for out excellent local rhymers and singers.
I’m currently working on uploading the videos of some of the nights best performers, but due to technical difficulties it is taking much longer than expected.
Some of the stand out performers of the night were: the always raw Tira D, the homie with the killer flow T Lo Da Champ, TG and his crew, Kidd Moolah had the crowd floating off his marijuana laced bars, Mr. Singh came through spitting about real life, Lil TJ had everybody chanting along, TDotVDot had the producer/rapper combo, the homie spitting in that Red Ink MR_IBEONIT, Lil Chris Manne coming through with the assists for a couple performances, high energy performer 2 Kool, lyrics for ladies and the streets from J Daskreet, extremely turnt Moody and the comical wordplay of Dope.
The finals came down to Tira D and T Lo Da Champ. The two excellent MC’s spit a 30 second freestyle a piece after which the crowd decided T Lo was the victor. That means that the Aim High Records representer won 500 dollars in cash and a spot at the upcoming Summer Jam concert.
The flows were on point and the tracks were connecting with the crowd. It was all positive, no drama, no beef. Just a room filled with artists and spectators vibing to some dope music. I’m looking forward to the next event that goes on at Soul Wired Cafe and I hope to see some new faces in the building.
