“We want to give the 18 and over crowd a place of their own and an outlet for young independent artists to show off their talent in front of their fans and people who already know the music business like MC Eiht.” says Mario Neeley of Street Swag, organizer for West Coast Sundays. In the rap game since the 1990’s, MC Eiht went solo after his role as A-Wax in the critically acclaimed movie “Menace II Society” and was recently featured on Kendrick Lamar’s hit song “m.A.A.d City”. In addition to performing and hosting, MC Eiht will be part of the celebrity judge panel with the difficult task of picking out the best performers of the night.
West Coast Sundays’ winners will get a chance to battle it out in Las Vegas. Finalists from California will compete against Vegas finalists for a $5000 cash prize, a recording contract and a chance to perform onstage with a celebrity headline
