As for Teams

I don't know how many are thinking of entering. If there's only 2 - they can battle. If there are many more - we might need to do some selecting based on visuals and voting. Please let me know if you have a team that plans to enter so I can be well prepared time wise. Any suggestions on how we should select teams if need be? Feel free to suggest! I am only worried about time constraints at the venue with 3 battles but I'll try to sort it out.

If you plan to enter any of the battles please, write to me [email protected] with the following

DJ Name
First Name
Last Name
Complete Address, Apt or House City State Zip
Website or myspace
Which NY battle/s you are entering
Your Crew affiliation if you have one

I don't have any more information about anything else than NYC. I will announce any dates I have as soon as I have them.

I am very patient about this year, taking back the DMC US battles. I am doing my best to produce what battles I can with the most authenticity and fairness. I have people talking to me already about next year and bringing DMC out. God willing, you will be patient too with my first year back!
