Congratulations are definitely in order for budding Chicago emcee, MarVo, who took the #1 spot at the Chicago date for Tag Records Survival of the Freshest contest. After traveling to Philadelphia and placing third (apparently they were showing the Phillly natives all the “brotherly love” < – zing?), MarVo returned home for the undisputed Chi-Town title.
He won $5000 and a chance, along with 11 other finalists, to be seen and heard by Jermaine Dupri in the championship round.
So just to reiterate: MarVo went to a foreign city, placed third and then returned to his home turf for the crown. Pretty impressive stuff. Well done.
More pics after the jump…

Ptoda - Radio Raheem

GL the Great and Cold Hard (of Crucial Conflict) get together for a short jam session.
I’m officially trying to kick it with these dudes next time they are together. Hilarious.
What are they in? A bus? I also just caught that Cold Hard calls Nirvana – “Nevada”
Props to GL
