As promised, today we’re kicking off The GO! Experiment with our first installment.
Here is a little more background for you: We filmed this event last Spring at Leaders1354 on Wells and we invited close to 30 emcees to participate. The Experiment was hosted by PHLI-guy Dave Jeff, with Jay iLLa handling the DJ duties. We told the emcees to arrive and be prepared to spit a quick sixteen – however, I’m not sure they knew they were going to be in a room of their rapping peers. The public was not invited, and besides a few lucky patrons, it was only rappers in the room.
The emcees were picked in small groups (around 5 for each segment), and the first to grab the mic were Rhymefest, Pugs Atomz, Que B.I.L.L.A.H., Phil G & Big Wiz. And all rappers spit over Chicago beats.
The GO! Experiment was directed by Raphael Nash and filmed by Casey Borhnell
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the GO! Experiment.
