Only if you have been living under a rock in Hammanskraal will you not know what the next words mean SCRAMBLES4MONEY FOREIGN EXCHANGE FINALS! Yeah, you heard that right, the finals are finally here and the streets are going crazy.
The organisers have kicked ass and pulled out all the stops and organised a mutherfucker of an epic day for y'all. I'm talkin 15 battles, I'm talking Fungus and Kadence finally throwing down, I'm talking 'the rumoured' return of King Key-la, I'm talking Cerebro aka Ken The Average Martian versus Illite MC aka The Maverick Kid.
Expect a battle day better than any other SCRAMBLES event we have had so far. If you are not sold yet, here's a bit of info that might sway you. On top of the fact that we'll be seeing some of the best from both the main league and the draft league, you will also be treated to the return of some of your favorite names from the original 16 MCs who were in the tournament. You will be going crazy witnessing Slyme, Demon, Willy Wroth, Jake Baker, Discypal and Pava mutherfuckin Gunz.
Therefore, without further ado, i would strongly suggest you head right on over to the Grayscale Concept Store in Braamfontein to cop your tickets, as they are limited. The date is Sunday the 9th of June, R60 gets you in and the battles start at 12pm sharp.

The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania duo of Crumb and JustTraxx better known as Dope Means are unveiling their debut LP “Government Funded” onto the world on 6-18-2013. The group is led by MC Crumb who joined the Army and was deployed to Iraq and recently returned to the States. Crumb used his paychecks from “Operation New Dawn 11-12” to fund this LP, which focuses on corruption, the politics of war and all aspects of life and their love of their home town Pittsburgh. Though not a political group, many of their songs focus on the current political climate and the effects they've had on their lives as both soldiers and civilians.
“Government Funded” features thirteen tracks and features guest appearances by Timbo King (Wu-Tang), Planet Asia, Reef the Lost Cauze and Ras Kass alongside production from C-Lance (JMT), Bronze Nazareth, Vherbal & Ziko. A&R’d by longtime Hip-Hop impresario M-Eighty (Wu-Tang / DPG / Undergods) fame, this LP represents the call of duty found within all mankind as delivered via raw lyricism and classic boom bap tales.

This was the matchup that the streets been waiting for! Maybe even more anticipated than some of the semi final battles that took place on the night.
What am i talking about? I'm talking about Discypal vs Anti to the Bullshit, at the SCRAMBLES4MONEY: FOREX Semi Finals. The anticipation was well worth it as both MCs brought bars on bars on bars!
I can easily say this is the most closely contested battle since the Cerebro vs. Illite battle from last year. Even after watching this over five times i'm still enjoying each view, i really hope more MCs are gonna bring it raw like these two.
I went into this reppin Anti but Dyscipal came with it a slight bit harder.
