You see, Saturday's Best Love is Free event is steadily approaching, and it's fixing to be a classy evening that should prove to be has heavy on the lyrics as it is on the love. Just recently, a video with performers from the event -- and those who appeared on its yearly compilation -- emerged. Need a reminder of the ridiculous range of our area emcees? Marvel as Sean Anonymous, MaLLy, Toki Wright, Carnage on beatboxing, and many more show their devotion. Directed by Adam J Dunn, the multi-angle clip gathers the considerable beatmaking gifts of Carnage and FM Beatbox's Slowkid, and the diverse local stylings of Sean Anonymous, Phillip Morris, Wize Guyz, Culture Cry Wolf's Botzy, Lizzo, Ceewhy, St. Paul Slim, MaLLy, and Toki Wright.
