Auggie 5000 and Sophia Eris want you to Shut Up and Rap!

You could win a pretty dope prize.

Look, you can talk all you want about being the best lyricist in the Twin Cities, but when it comes right down to it, there's really only one way to prove it. You've gotta get up onstage, shut up, and rap!

That's why Auggie 5000 and Sophia Eris are hosting a weekly showcase for rap, poetry, comedy and spoken word at Modist Brewing every week, starting on Thursday, July 6. Auggie, Sophia and special guest judges will pick a winner each week, and the the last performer standing gets a special, top-secret grand prize.

Interested in performing? Just hit up @Auggie5000 and @SophiaEris on Twitter and use the hashtag #ShutUpAndRapMPLS and they'll let you know if you made the cut. Make sure to bring your A-game!
