In 2006 End Of The Weak brought its MC Challenge to the UK.. Hosted in Brixton London at UK's own leading Hip Hop event [anyone want to dispute that?] Speakers Corner!! In the first UK season we took the challenge all the way to New York with Stig Of The Dump taking home the Championship title for the UK!
This season we done it again!! 2 Seasons, 2 World Champions. UK runs this! Congratulations to JACK FLASH. The second World Champion to take the title for the UK, This season we defended the title on home turf. The final took place back at our spritual home of Speakers Corner and the atmosphere was electric from start to finish. Footage from the entire night will soon be up online and features killer performances from Phi Life Cypher, Kyza & Reveal with the Speakers Corner Quartet.
Solo sets from Triple Darkness, Reain, Sonny Jim & Kosyne, Stig Of The Dump & Dr.Syntax, Kay M & Ill Answer, Furious [Berlin], Logic, Manage & a truly inspiring showcase from the Louisden.com Beat Cypher Collective.
Host from both the New York & London EODub chapters held down the stage the entire night and made the room feel real warm.. Stig, Kingpin, Big Zoo & Propayne, all freestyle dons and prime examples of what it takes to be a EODub MC Champion! The turn out was capacity and energy high. We still vibing from it now. Its all love.
The challenge itself was dope, Chefket representing Germany took 2nd place with an outstanding performance. Warlock stepped in for Mic Orni to represent France [Visa issues] and bodied it, Dirty Mac representing the USA came in hard and put a big energy out. Intense Challenge.
The legendary DJ Jazz T held down the entire Challenge on the wheels, DJ Snuff held down the live acts and end of night celebration cypha! Big night, cypha's inside and outside the venue, Skinny Man, Jehst & Chemo were only a few of shining stars in attendance! Bboy battles all night in Bar with DJ Bulet [EODub Berlin], DJ Credit One & The Throwdown residents. Massive!
Props to the judges on the night, its a hard job, being a multi lingual challenge we needed judges that could spit in various languages, and thats what we got. Jyager representing YnR can MC in both English & French, Hoycke represnting Dark Circle can MC in both English and German. On top of this we had an international EODub discussion panel, points from judges were in favor of Jack Flash and the panel agreed. UK holds the World Championship title! Jack Flash now along with holding the prestige of the title and all that comes with it also wins the oppertunity to perform at any EODub location expenses paid world wide! That could be anywhere from the USA to South America, Africa to Asia to the Middle East, the choice lays with Jack!
