After a grueling afternoon of eliminations yesterday and with twenty-nine of the Philippines leading Hip Hop crews competing, Gensan’s very own Intensity Boyz finished fifth with just one-point difference from the fourth placer.  Only four groups came from Mindanao while the majority were from Luzon and Metro Manila.  The winner in the Philippine Leg will now compete in the World Supremacy Battlegrounds to be be held in Melbourne, Australia on November 29, 2009.  Congratulations to the winners!

Last night, twelve starry-eyed boys left the port of Makar, Gensan onboard SuperFerry 2 to battle it out with at least thirty hip hop crews from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.  They are gunning  for the chance to represent the Philippines to the World Supremacy Battlegrounds 2009 in Melbourne, Australia.  The Grand Finals of the Philippine Leg will be held at Crossroad 77, Mother Ignacia, Quezon City on October 24, 2009.Continue reading
