With a variety of group pieces covering the inner workings of schizophrenia to the lost innocence of childhood fairy tales in this nine to five life, YOUR Empire MindState Slam team made it to the Group Piece Competition Finals! Empire MindState joined Fort Worth, Oakland, Slam Minnesota, Slam New Orleans, Seattle, Vancouver, Ocotillo Slam, Urbana, and Santa Cruz on the final stage to battle for the crown. After tons of fantastic group pieces presented from teams across the nation, the poems were scored, the scores were tallied, and the judges have spoken…..Empire MindState has the SECOND best group pieces in the NATION!!!!
Congratulations to Judah1, Treesje, superB, Prototype, Shane, and Fisseha!! You have truly represented and put the IE on the map once again!!
SLAM UPDATE: Our fellow Southern Californians from San Diego hit the semi-final stage tonight and came in second in their bout! Unfortunately, the poets from Elevated will not advance to the final stage. BUT, Rudy Francisco, Ant Black, Succint, Jerrica, and Imani are now ranked in the top ten teams in the nation!!!
Congratulations San Diego!! Well deserved!!
