Host Steven Baumgardner calls for MC's to the stage for a series of rap battles.
In the event that neither rapper performs well enough, they are both disqualified, "Friend's don't let friend's rap shit," informs Baumgardner after two MC's failed to impresses the crowd.
Each battle is made up of two rounds, each round the MC is given one turn to come up with rhymes that not only insult their opponent, but also impress the crowd.
After finishing his opponent with the finishing line, "These are hot lines and you just got caught", MC Twan (left) is given the first round in the encore battle. A battle where each MC can only rap compliments about his opponent, instead of dis'.
A block party was held for an ongoing mural project by SeeS.A.W. The project, located at 34th and Habersham, will be a mural that will be painted over by a new artist every three months. Each artist will bring a new style with each layer that is added to the wall.
Katherine Sandoz, the project's first muralist, paints a scene of Turtle Island. Sandoz explains that the scene is for the community to look at so they can picture the ocean and feel a sense of tranquility.
Members from All Walks of Life perform at the Muse Arts Warehouse. The performance is meant to bring awareness to the damage caused by drugs, weapons and domestic violence to the urban community.
