Read full review after the jump.
Dizaster, one of the world’s most popular battle rappers, came to the Red Room to face local hero Lil G at the top of a card showcasing some of the best talent in the Northwest. From the start of the first battle the crowd was responsive with an excitement that only increased after each match. The venue was packed, but the crowd was very well behaved, reacting to the complex wordplay and jokes without interrupting the momentum of the battlers.
The main event was even better than anyone could have predicted. Lil G was cooking from the outset and had the crowd and his opponent rolling with laughter. Dizaster displayed his infamous world class freestyle ability and mixed it up with hilarious jokes and bars to keep the audience engaged to the very end.
A birthday present that will not be soon forgotten, the success of Surprise Party has fans around the world watching our city in anticipation of what is to come…
