News Update: Scribble Jam 08, Grind Time and more

Been a hot minute since we updated with anything, so we got a big news update for ya'll. Let's get it in.

First and foremost, Scribble Jam 2008 has updated they website with new content, including a message board and tour dates. Speaking of tour dates, the Scribble Jam tour is already two deep with plenty more shows to come. So in case ya'll wanna check it out or even participate in one of the prelim battles for a slot at this year's competition, check the website for all pertinent info. So far, two prelim winners have been announced: Subverse from the Dubphonics crew won the Bay Area prelims and Knowledge Medina took the Orlando prelims. Subverse been on it for a minute (check his battles against Thesaurus, Tantrum and Dlor) and Knowledge Medina is relatively new, but been blowin' up big on various Grind Time battles. Big ups to both of these cats. Not too sure who else will be kickin' it at Scribble, but word on the street is, Kid Twist and pooRICH from Toronto will be reppin', as well as various Grind Time and Jumpoff vets. Let's hope we get to see some dream matches this year.

In Grind Time news, two new satellites have been started; one in Cali with GT West Coast president Lush One runnin' that and one in New York. No clue who's runnin' the NY division, but it should be ill. Lush apparently got some ill lineups goin' on for GT Cali, so it's finta be dope. Also on the horizon is a USA vs. Canada. Madd Illz is lining up a "varsity" team of sorts, the confirmed list of which will be announced at the end of his set at Scribble Jam. Kid Twist is apparently doing the same for the Canadian team, which has been rumored to include himself, pooRICH, Pat Stay, Organik, Miracle and Hollohan. Some of them Canadian cats are beasts so I'm definitely looking forward to them stepping to us. And to top all the Grind Time news off, Lush has set up the first battle at Sweet's Historic Ballroom in Oakland on August 30th from 12PM to 5PM. According to him, some of the best emcees will be battling, as well as what he called "the rematch of the year". It's anyone's guess what he's got in store on that end (Franco vs. Nocando? The Saurus vs. Illmaculate?).

And finally in music news, Nocando's LA vs. Hollywood mixtape has dropped and you can cop that from his Myspace. He's only selling it between July 23rd and September 30th though, so get it while you can. Quest M.C.O.D.Y.'s album "The Light Project" has dropped and he's doing a record release show in support of it with The Guerilla Funk Mob, Guilty Simpson, Miz Korona, Invincible, Finale and WRC teammate Marvwon on August 2nd at St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit, MI. Check for more details.
