Cam’ron to Help Club Kreyol Host Rap Battle

Missing BET’s Freestyle Fridays? Don’t fret; @ClubKreyolPsu is bringing an epic eight emcee rap battle to Penn State. Club Kreyol — Penn State’s Haitian Student Association — will host “A Rap Cypher” in conjunction with The Lion 90.7 FM tonight at 7 p.m. in the HUB.

The rap battle will run similar to an eight-person single elimination tournament with the crowd providing most of the judging via applause. However, moderating duties have been left up to none other than the Grammy nominated hip hop artist Cam’ron.

That’s right, break out your pink minks and throwback jerseys, Killa Cam’s coming to town. The Diplomats’ head honcho who made his name with hits like “Dipset Anthem” and “Down and Out” will cap off the rap battle tournament with a performance of his own.

All of the contestants are excited and ready to bring their own brand of lyricism to the table. Trey Hinnant, who goes by T-Rockk, shared his enthusiasm.

“I offer something that’s different from the mainstream media,” said Hinnant. “Something real, something that can people can actually relate to. Every bar is another shot to reach my dream.”

Other artists offered a more relaxed take on the competition.

“I’m offering nothing but the real; wordplay, punchlines, metaphors, BARS BARS BARS!” said MITCH who preferred to go by alias only.

Club Kreyol’s executive board shared the same static sentiment.

“We aim to have a culturally diverse crowd convene in the same room with one common interest while also being open to learn more about people who have some influence on a large part of our world today; that part being music,” said Stephania Fortuna, a Penn State senior involved in the production.

“We also hope that by the end of the event, we would have positively reconstructed the perception of Haiti as a whole.”

Tickets are $4 for Penn State students and $6 for non-students.
