London-born, Miami-raised MC Wrekonize is probably best known to party people these days for his role in rising live hip-hop juggernaut Mayday! Before he joined the group a couple years ago, though, he was renowned by underground heads for his freestyle skills. As a teenager, he ascended the ranks of the local battle-rap circuit before scoring what should have been the crowning achievement of his early career.
In 2003, he was named a finalist on an MTV (!)-sponsored, televised freestyle competition calledBattle II: The Takeover in Times Square
. Wrek wrecked 10 other rappers to come out on top, for a promised prize of a contract with Roc-a-Fella Records. Unfortunately, that contract never materialized ... although with the late-'00s shake-up at that label, maybe Wrek gets the last laugh.
