As soon as James and D dropped their mikes, 97.9 FM's Headkrack pounced on the stage, but his roars didn't match his goofy "posse" who couldn't keep up with their MC's verbal attack. Though intense, Headkrack's act wore thin when his rhymes spent more time saying how good he was rather than proving it. Steve Austin's headlining set had the most deliberate style of the night, combining the softer inflection of Method Man with the harder bite of DMX. Still, when his first songs sounded only as good as the previous acts, Austin cut the backing music and dropped some delicious, a cappella freestyle, as if to remind himself that even a small crowd deserves a hot show. Headkrack and Dallas rapper Ness helped Austin finish the night with "It's a Monster," so head-noddingly good that Headkrack needs to spin it on his station. With Austin's recent deal with Tommy Boy Records, that may happen soon enough.
