Ah, yes, this should be dope. If you're a hip-hop head, clear your calendar: Spoke In Wordz is set to battle J-Money on Saturday, June 1, at McDonough's Irish Pub, 10395 East Iliff in Aurora.
J-Money, who's from Aurora, of course, is a seasoned battle rapper, whereas this MC match-up will mark Spoke's first official battle.
King FOE of BLKHRTS is set to host the battle, which will comprise three two-minute rounds, and the winner will be named by a panel of five judges.
It's more than a mere war of words, though. Up for grabs: a thousand bucks cash, winner takes all. Continue on to see J Money's battling skills in action as he takes on Isaac Knox.
