Vancouver, B.C. – The End Of The Weak competition was a tough one with five rounds designed to put an MC’s skills to the test. To win the competition one had to remain confident and smooth while consistently landing lines the crowd could get behind in each and every round. No easy task, when freestyling about random objects pulled out of a bag, for example. Each MC had strong moments but the official results – decided on by judges Heatwave, Snak The Ripper, Evil Ebenezer and Prevail – were no surprise to the crowd. When asked who the winner should be, Junk was the crowd’s choice as well as the judges’.

HipHopCanada would like to quickly introduce and acknowledge each competitor’s contribution to the night. Starting with the man who placed second, who also gets to head to Montreal, Rupert CommonThe “pre-apocalyptic rap-poet and comedic artist of Canadian decent” won the crowd over early, killing the first round with a written verse to a beat of choice.

Placing third, Little T, showcased his “clever wordplay and solid flow” consistently throughout the competition and was able to really engage the audience. He really stood out in the freestyle bag which gave a couple of the MCs a little trouble.
