Monday Nite Fights to Determine the Freestyle King of the South

Monday Nite Fights, Dallas longest running hip-hop freestyle event, will have its championship battle June 2005 to name the next Southerun Freestyle King.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 28, 2005 -- Monday Nite Fights, Dallas longest running hip-hop freestyle event, will have its championship battle June 2005 to name the next Freestyle Sultan. Last years winner was Plato who walked away with a custom made boxing style belt complete with an engraved name plate.

Throughout the year emcees battle each other every Monday at the Monday Nite Fights event held at the Caribbean Bar and Grill. The emcee with the most wins at the years end earns a belt and the title of Freestyle Champ. They must then battle the previous champ to earn the ultimate title of Freestyle Sultan. As of yet, no female emcees have won the title but women are welcomed and encouraged to join the battle. In the event that a woman is crowned she will then be named the Freestyle Empress.

The show is hosted and ran by 97.9 FM The Beat morning show personality Headkrak with the internationally recognized DJ Phil on the turntables. The event is dedicated to showcasing established and up and coming rap talents and is focused on the true five elements of hip-hop. Emcees are judged by a crowd of their peers on whats in their head and how artistically well they can formulate their thoughts. In other words lyricism reigns supreme at MNF.

The weekly competition is open to all challengers with no fee to sign up. But to challenge the current King of the South and gain the title they must be the current Sultan or Empress. Battles with the current King/Queen can be arranged for out of towners and if they happen to win they gain bragging rights only.

MNF stands by its commitment to enrich the art of hip-hop by holding various campaigns throughout the year to educate and empower artists such as the MNF Literacy Campaign. Where such sponsors as Backbeat Books donates books on various aspects of the music business. In the past the event has been sponsored by Def Jam Recording, Elektra Records, BMG, EMI, Universal Records, XXL, King Magazine, Gamestop, Reebok, Elemental Mag as well as various clothing and gaming giants.
