Welcome to Round 2 of Vox Pop, DC9's way to give back to the hip-hop community.

First off, we'd like to start by saying thanks for all of the input that we got last week, in our first round of competition. Let's keep this thing building, though. And that being said, let's do our best to keep the comments section constructive. (As JMack mentioned in last week's comments section, keep in mind that we might want to show this to our families. OK?)

Now let's get into Round 2.

This week's installment pits our defending champ JMack, against some fresh blood in the form of our challenger Yung Rick. Our emcees explored the theme "Spring is coming" to combat the bold snap that we've all been hating lately.

So which lyricist warms you up?

JMack comes back with some more theatrics, while challenger Yung Rick took a more conventional approach, confident enough in the merits of his wordplay and swagger to take the close-up head-in-a-box approach.

Check the submissions after the jump.

The Champ: JMack -- "What's Happening This Spring?"

The Challenger: Yung Rick -- "Spring Is Coming"


All emcees (and producers with emcee friends) should start getting your videos together for Round 3 of Vox Pop. Next week's topic is "My Favorite Movie." Pretty wide open stuff there, so run with it. Video submissions are

due here

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
