Rap Battles At The Palliser Hotel

There was good support for Ynui Hip-Hop on Friday night, from our own rappers - D-lo squad and Infamouz who pulled off a good performance. A lot of energy goes into producing tracks and it shows when you get up on stage and perform in front of a crowd of people.

MC Rocka hosted the night, Chozin Few from Porirua started the night off, Infamouz second then D-lo squad to finish the group performance, Rocka jumped up to show his beatbox talent.

The night ended with the rap battles, with special guest judge Usouljah choosing Lyrics from D-lo squad as best battler. DJ Crome was the heart beat of the night, who has been D-lo squad DJ since the start, but that was his last night, now that he's making the move to Aussie.

Good work for D-lo squad with organising the event, this gave people a reason to get together and enjoy what they are there for, to show what hip-hop is all about.

We want to get together with D-lo squad and Infamouz and help them setup their own websites, this will happen in the next couple of weeks, so be sure to check back.

Respect 2005 Hiphop Festival

We were apart of the 3000 people that turned up to witness, D-lo squad who perform at the 2005 Repect hiphop festival and what a day it was, the weather was spot on and for myself, being my first time to see D-lo squad in action.

I must say it's awesome to see, people you have grown up with, entertain a crowd as such. I caught up with one of the members, and asked what they thought about having their own website. They are very interested, so in saying that, we have setup hiphop.ynui.co.nz. Its still to be designed, we will work as fast as we can, to get this site on its way.

While we were there, we managed to take a couple of photos, before we realised that the batteries for the camera were on its way out.
