MADCAN DESEASE. nov 12, 99
judges: Mak-1, Falco and Ice
venue: Drum Cafe, Cape Town


Well as always with things in the hip hop world the competition started a bit late. Meaning that I got there at exactky the correct time to see things start. First I had to tend with folks at the door asking me to pay to enter what the hell was up with that. Anyway myself and Hamma deejayed while the artists got busy. At the end the judges decided:

1ST PLACE -- MANTIS
This guy has been piecing for only a year and a half and has a nice clean style when executing a piece. He also made the trip to Gauteng on his own.

2ND PLACE -- WEALZ
Did a self-portrait and some wicked fill-in for his lettering. I didn't thinkthat face looked anything like Tyler.

3RD PLACE -- LADY
Some ill character took care a lot of the other guys

Some of the other contenders were Tag4, Demo, Zore, Mad2 and Kato. I don't know the name of the other kids.
