Thanks to everyone who came to support the #northwestsweet16 yesterday. It was great to see that underground hip-hop is still viable in Seattle, even with all the changes we’ve seen over the last couple years.
Last night was super fun. First off congrats to Krubel Bekele “Buckshot” from Unleashed for taking the Sweet 16 bracket. Was great to see him finally take the championship. Not only does he get the Sweet 16 title, but Geoff Reyes will be flying him out to Florida for the UBL championship in July. Big ups to Luis Tfs Bowzee for taking second place in the 2v2 AND the Sweet 16 bracket. I’m sure all of us were wondering how he would have done had he only entered one bracket. For the 2v2, we had Byron Jay Donaldson and Dann Vital taking the W as Egyptian Cotton. For our all style champs, we extended two invites to two champions, Crownz and Squidgit (spelling?). Other notable competitors were Keltin Martin from Calgary, Mo Ramirez from Portland, Jermine Bulaong with the flavor, Sevrin Emnacen-Boyd, Samson, and a bunch more. Josh Laquian and Thomas Dominique Chung are working hard on the footage as we speak, they will have footage posted on the B-boy Network Channel asap: https://www.youtube.com/user/BboyNetwork.
Many thanks to the production team, couldn’t have done it without them.
