Are you a Hip Hop Head?

If you answered YES, you've probably engaged and taken sides in this debate on more than one occasion: Who's the iller emcee, NAS or JAY-Z?!

In one of the most prolific and lyrically intense beefs in hip hop history, the two legendary New York emcees went at it on the radio, in guest spots, on record, overtly and subliminally. Jigga's mom even had to get involved. 

In 2005 they re-united (ironically at Jay's "I DECLARE WAR" concert) and have since appeared on the same track a number of times.

But on Wednesday, May 23rd, we're bringin' it BACK to 2001, The Cypher style!

DJ Xplisit will be playing classic songs from such classic albums as Illmatic, Reasonable Doubt, The Blueprint, Stillmatic, God's Son, The Black Album, In My Lifetime, It Was Written, and Nastradamus. Okay, maybe not that last one.

To add to the pot, we're having our LYRICIST COMPETITION, where emcees bring their best 16's over Jay & Nas instrumentals. $10 to enter, winner takes all.

As for The Cypher segment, ALL EMCEES GET MIC TIME! So come through and rock at Toronto's only organic hip hop open mic!
