Formed in 2007, Rhyme Calisthenics was structured to develop freestyle and writing abilities in aspiring MC’s. Commercial successes such as Mac Miller and battle rap beasts like Real Deal have sharpened their respective swords early in their careers as competitors in Rhyme Cal competitions.
Tonight at the Lambadina Lounge in Toronto, four MC’s will step on stage to spin Rhyme Cal’s Wheel of Skillz. The game-show-style wheel will determine each MC’s rhyming fate through three rounds of competition. MC’s will have 45 seconds (generally enough time for one 16-bar verse) to perform the rhyming challenge at-hand. They will then be given scores by a panel of judges, which cumulatively through three rounds will decide Toronto’s first Rhyme Cal Champion.
