The 757 entertainment scene does it again! Putting on a unique event to showcase Norfolk’s youth and providing awareness on youth gang violence, hip hop recording artist and VA’s own No Malice teams up with volunteers across Hampton Roads for the Re-Up Rap Contest. Centered around teens of the Diggs Town and Oakleaf neighborhoods, the contest was created to highlight the talents of individuals in these communities, ages 13-18, and ultimately empower kids to look to art as an alternative to violence.
The official Facebook event page reads: “The final rap competition will take place on Saturday, June 15, 2013. It will showcase performances from the 10 finalists, chosen from a pool of 50 preliminary competitors.” The grand prize includes $500, studio time to record a single, and a music video shoot.
The judges include Bink, FAM-Lay, and No Malice. The event will be hosted by HOT 91’s JLS. It is being sponsored by the National Father Initiative and Victory Life Church. Location to be announced.
