Here we go my people, Hiphopworld went to the Highland Ballroom to film the EOW World Championship for 2012. It was a great event with Rappers, DJ, Producers, and Rap Legends in attendance. Their are no Battles in the world, like an EOW MC Challenge, which is based on Lyrical skills, intelligence, flow, cadence, collaboration, and adaptation. Catchy beats, hooks, flashy clothes, dancers, and economic kick backs will not help you, or save your ass at the EOW competitions! EOW aka END OF THE WEAK !
EOW Founders envisioned a unique competition that truly tests even the most talented MCs. In the MC Challenge, contestants compete in five rounds: Beat Juggling, Written’s, A Capella’s, Cypha’s, and the crowd favorite: Freestyle Grab Bag.
Throughout the event a panel of judges awards points for lyrics, creativity, stage presence, delivery and crowd reaction. We pride ourselves on the non-confrontational tone of our MC Challenge and the talent level of the MCs who compete.
As of 2012, the MC Challenge is being held in 11 countries across 5 continents. Entrants compete in regional competitions, with the winner advancing to the National Finals. Each nation sends one champion to represent their country in the annual World Finals, where one MC is crowned the new World Champion.
The first-ever MC Challenge was in the year 2000 in the back of a restaurant in NYC’s Lower East Side. That one alone featured WebbaFied and Immortal Technique. Other Challengers and Champions include: Jin, Iron Solomon, Immortal Technique, Pack FM, Pumpkinhead, Reef Da Lost Cause, Breez Evahflowin, C-Rayz Walz, Poison Pen and many, many more.
