Last year at Flavor Fest 2011 we launched our first Beat Battle. The auditorium at Crossover Church was packed out for the first night and definitely the second night - the finals. The response from attendee's, artists, and producers was overwhelming. With that said, here is the info on the 2nd Annual Beat Battle at Flavor Fest 2012!


Eight beat makers will attempt to invoke the ugliest face the audience at the 12th annual Flavor Fest, has ever made. Ultimately two beat makers share the opposite end of the stage, and each showcase two 60 second beats. Just like last year are the judge, however this year we are adding 3 official judges into the mix. The winner as voted by the audience in attendance, as well as at home watching live, and our official judges, will win $1,500 in cash and prizes! Add a comment

We need leaders. There's no other way to say it. And there's a large section of young urban men and women that need shaping as leaders. They are eagerly searching leaders to hear from, leaders to connect with and content for people ministering in their context. God has allowed Rapzilla to be uniquely placed at the intersection of the Hip-hop culture and the church. We want to leverage that position to not just bring you music but to also bring you content from leaders that will help to equip, empower, encourage and challenge you.

With that in mind, we are excited to bring you the newly established Urban Leadership Collective. Every Monday we will bring you fresh content from leaders like Adam Thomason (Collision Records & Pastor of Damascus Road Church - Flint, MI), Leonce Crump II (Pastor of Renovation Church - Atlanta, GA), Rich Perez (Pastor of Christ Crucified Fellowship - Washington Heights, NY), John Onwuchekwa (Pastor of Blueprint Church - Atlanta, GA), and more!

The Urban Leadership Collective is kicking off with Adam Thomason's contribution entitled Zoo-ology. Click here to read Zoo-ology, and start developing your leadership skills further so you can begin growing other leaders in your community!
