From my east coast homie DJ Laser, read the below:

On September 26th, 2011 WordSpit and Team ILLest held a concert for a cause titled "Rise of The ILLest" at the legendary New York City venue S.O.B.'s. With sponsorship from international lifestyle brand and clothing company Rocawear, in partnership with MTV's Staying Alive Foundation, Wordspit and Team ILLest were able to reach their goal of raising awareness and money for the continuation of HIV/AIDS prevention. 
        Rise of The ILLest, hosted by's own Low Key has since been labeled as New York City's best event to end the summer of 2011! With multiple prizes (ticket giveaways, snap backs and CD's) raffled off to help raise money for MTV's Staying Alive Foundation, the night radiated with positive energy and love. 
       Gracing the stage with amazing performances were R&B male trio Phaze 3, Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Olamide, R&B songstress Cocoa Sarai, Hip- Hop recording artist Dremur and headliner/creator of Rise of The ILLest, Wordspit. An estimated 300+ people were in attendance creating an excellent atmosphere for the night.
