March 9th saw the first UNPRLD Exhibition freestyle competition, an event they describe as:
the goal of this exhibition is not to find winners or losers, but rather for freestyle development and criticism. with the prizes in place, we hope to see competitors try their best to perform at their highest capabilities.
It’s great to see alternate contest formats getting some play, and hopefully we’ll see plenty more of this type of contest in the future. UNPRLD had cash prizes for First and Second place, and a prize bag for Third. Check out video of all the winners, and congrats to Mark Mangarin on his win!
