B-Ball Tryouts - 9th Wonder, M1-Platoon, Rapsody, Young Swift & Others

9th Wonder, as most of y'all know, teaches a course in NCCU's Hip Hop Initiative and was blessed by a full Pro-Tools studio that is on campus in Durham. Out of that studio has been birthed M1-Platoon, a 5 man group of 19 year-olds from Washington D.C., who are all students at Central, Kooley High and Young Swift, a 17 year old from Durham, who's in a pre-college program at Central. 9th pulled out an old track he made while all were in the studio, and he tells the following:
I was like "ok...ima put 7 cats on this joint...everybody can try out.....but only 7 rappers can get on the jam....."

well...everybody scrambles for pen and paper...12 cats...all writing at the same time...reciting there rhyme...practicin' the flows...all that... the control room it sat me, my assistant Alleis(Softserve) and Picasso(resident beatmaker extraordinaire....

One by one, each rapper entered the booth, and lefted the booth 2 flame in their got MORE and MORE impossible for me to CUT somebody...and at the end...I DIDN'T...

The crazy thing is...the age of these kids range from 17 to 22...with most of them being UNDER 20

so...I bring to yall B-BALL TRYOUTS...
