2013 UrbSLAM champion Louis ConPhliction had a near flawless night after posting 59.9 points out of 60 for the October UrbSLAM.
ConPhliction set the pace for the night early with a perfect score by performing He Said, She Said. By the second round, he had to suffer a major misstep for any others poets to have a chance at overtaking his lead. The closest competitor was Freeman Word, a poet with experience in slams and capable of landing a spot on the 2014 UrbSLAM team.
Sista Sols rebounded from a disappointing September match and early first round exit by coming in third in October. September’s slam champ, Chris Ware, suffered a time penalty, which ultimately cost him second place after notching a perfect score. Blackstone rounded out the competition by landing in fifth place.
The next slam is November 29, 2013.
