In what could have been the final Midwest Best $1000 Showcase. Fans & talent came out from across the Midwest & South, to find out who had what it takes to be the next Midwest Best Winner.
The 1st winner is always based strictly off who brings the most people to the event and this time around the winners won in a land slide King Tyrus & La Buck easily brought over 30 people out January 23rd which is the second highest number anyone has ever brought to a Midwest Best competition and was rewarded $500.00 for their accomplishments.
The second Midwest Best winner which was determined off the judges critique & was harder to determine with judges looking at 4 key factors (stage presence, image, sound quality, & likability). There was a lot of talent in the building that name including some of my favorite performances of the evening King Cakes, Luh Stank,Cash Zone, Biggs (Dayton,Ohio) & Deezy Da Papaer Boy. I wasn’t judging nor did I see every performance to give an honest take, and the judges almost unanimously agreed that Ueno Rhymes was worthy to become the next Midwest Best Winner, and the crowd agreed (for the most part) with minimal salty looks in the crowd. The judges liked her unique sound, and explosive stage performance, while noting that she has a unique fashion about her that’s not common.
