As is often the case with the grassroots events put on by these two groups, the night kicked off with an open mic cypher session that saw a dozen local rappers throwing down written and freestyle verses over a variety of beats from local icon DJ DSmooth.
One of Palm Beach counties rising rap talents Eric Biddines made an impromptu guest appearance during the eclectic vocal presentation, and got the crowd's attention with a few verses before passing off the mic.
Next on deck was a solid opening set from Miami-based spitter Phresh James. For many, it was their first time catching Phresh this far North, and the short warm-up performance was a choice dose of crafted verse and new school sensibilities.
