I am a graphic designer, and this is a follow up on a book I'm creating noting the 50 greatest battlers of all-time. By now, I know a good number of you are aware of it. RegularJoe, (a poster on here) offered to write the bios and has begun working on some of them. I tried doing it myself at the beginning, but I figured it'd be best to leave a writer to do that portion of the work, and I feel its been a DEFINITE improvement. Each spread of the book will be set up so the battler's illustration is on one page, and his bio is on the other. I will be posting them every so often on here, and I encourage feedback, criticism, other info, and whatever else you all can offer. Below is both the bio itself, and how it will appear in the book. This is Breez Evahflowin's. Thanks again, all previous feedback has been a huge help. Also, all the previous spreads that were posted can be found in a new subforum.

Some rappers choose their namesake in the attempt to create a character fully separate from themselves, others simply on a whim without a thought of the deeper meaning that might rest behind it. Whatever the thought process that went into the creation of the name Breez Evahflowin', it certainly wasn't a reflection of the Manhattan native's performance style. The NYC veteran might have spit with the smooth effortlessness of a light breeze. But the impact of his powerful punches was more akin to gale force winds. Growing up on Manhattan's Upper West Side, Breez first developed an interest in hip hop in the late 70s, a time when it seemed every corner featured a DJ, an MC and a b-boy. It wasn't until the late 80s that he began to become involved in the culture himself, battling across the city at famed locations such as the Nuyorican Cafe and Wetlands. Breez had an intensely rhythmic ear, blessed with the ability to pick out the pocket of an instrumental almost instantaneously. His flawless freestyles were always on beat, and he quickly earned a reputation as one of the deadliest spitters on the East Coast. His biggest accomplishments in the world of battle rap came in the late 90s, when he became a force in some of the most high profile competitions in the history of the sport. He was crowned champion of the Blaze Battles tournament in 1998, besting Lonnie B in the finals. In 1999, he returned to the competition, this time sponsored by BET and featuring a stacked field including Craig G, the RZA, Pumpkinhead and many more. In one of the most impressive performances of the era, Breez absolutely decimated Cappadonna in an early round matchup, showcasing all the elements of his perfectly well rounded style before eventually bowing out in the later rounds of the tournament. Breez continued to stand out on battle rap's biggest stages over the next few years. He ran off a streak of six straight victories at MTV's DFX Battles in 2001, and two years later took home the crown at the Carson Daly hosted Last Call MC Battle competition, picking apart AdeEM in the finals with his pristine flow and powerful punches. Breez went out on top following this championship, fading into the background of the battle scene while concentrating on the music of his group Stronghold. Today, Breez is a multifaceted artist, having gained a great deal of success with his artwork and comic book creations while still remaining musically inclined. A legendary great who wants to keep his legacy intact, Breez remains an avid fan of battle rap from a distance, not wanting to reignite his hunger by participating in the scene too directly. The modern era of battle rappers should be thankful, as history has proven just how quickly this Breez can turn into a full fledged tornado.
