Back in January, two locals dominated Scion's 2008 Hypeman Contest. DJ Sabotage and Hypeman P took first and second place in the competition, respectively, showing the judges and the nation that the Colorado hip-hop scene is on the rise. (Ed: No question Sabo and HP dominated, regardless. When you see the Huckleberries and scoobs they were up against, you can see why their skills stood out even more.) Scion finally released the above video of the finals competition in which judges Anthony Marshall (Lyricist Lounge founder), DJ Clark Kent and rapper Skillz cracked on the competitors and ultimately chose DJ Sabotage as the champ. Dig it.
