Team Thug Realness $1000
Sugar Hill Gang-Rapper’s Delight
In the 70s the way the bangy guys showed that they were the realest and had the most swag, was by spitting the fiercest rhymes, reads and disses. Ballroom has had some Thugs in the past who have had some of the deadliest reads and disses as well. People such as Rodney Balmain, Magnum Khan, Taz Garcon, Rico Aga, Tree Ebony, TicTic G. Gucci, Andray Ebony, Ace G. Gucci, Booty Khan, Sin Lanvin, Bricks Ebony, Khaos Balmain, Antwoin Aga, Twin Khan, David Revlon, Pharaoh 007, Kidd Lanvin, Saiku Prodigy, Neal, Man Man Prodigy, Danny West Sin Ebony, Pierre Gotti, Deshaun Ebony, Meechy Balmain, Bangga Balmain, and shout out to one of the BEST TO EVER DO IT RIP Dexter Ebony.
For this category you will need to pair up with another Thug to form a duo rap team. You will be provided the name of the team who you will be battling in order to prepare your diss. You are to come up with an 8 Bar Diss about that opposing team.
You and your partner will come to the judges and get scored for your realness. The other team will do the same. If both of you get 10s you and your partner must spit 4 bars a piece. Then the other team will do the same.
The judges will pick the team with the best diss and they will stand to the side. Once we have the teams who won their diss battle, those teams will be judged on their realness until we get down to the last two teams. The last two teams will each have to spit a free styling diss of each other. It is up to the team if they want to split up the diss, or if they just want one person to spit it. The judges will then pick the best team.
Each team will have until April 1st to submit their team . You will be paired against your rival team on April 2nd.
Each team will also have the choice to spit accapella or over an instrumental beat. You can bring your own beat, or use the one provided by the DJ.
Sch Boy Realness
After getting 10s for your realness the Sch boys will pick a letter of the alphabets out of a box. A trivia question will be asked, and they must have the answer in order to stay. The answer begins with the letter they chose. If they answer correctly, they will stand to the side, if they answer incorrectly, they get another chance to redeem themselves by spelling a word that begins with that letter. This word will be on the back of the question that they answered incorrectly. If they misspell the word, they are eliminated.
