The DMC 2002 US
season kicked off on Wednesday June 5, at BB Kings in New York City.
38 DJs came to demonstrate their skillz in hopes of qualifying for
the finals, making it difficult to choose 10 DJs that stood out above
As the doors
opened, the finalist took a rest as host Kuttin Kandi (Fifth Platoon,
Anomolies) warmed the crowd. She then turned the stage over to the
End of Week MCs, who produced a feirce MC battle, where 5 MCs minced
lyrics and tounges to display their verbal talents.
When the MCs were
done, Kandi moved the crowd to the DMC final round. The decks yielded
plenty of danger, including deep beats, juggles, scratches, and
ominous tones. After 60 minutes, the judges withdrew to cast their votes.
Mr. Sinista and A-trak showcased their talant while DMC counted the
judges' ballots. Sinista gave a lesson in beat juggling, then A-trak
used his technical mastery to wow the crowd.
