, Myka 9
Jose "Spy MC" Perez is a longtime San Antonian emcee. He's been recognized as one of the city's top freestyle artists. Part of that recognition comes from his hosting the bi-weekly event, How We Do At Limelight, as well as the Loud Mouth League,
which highlights a cappella freestyle battles between the city's best freestyle emcees.

The 32-year-old calls How We Do At Limelight, which occurs every first and third Wednesday, a "community thing."
"It's an opportunity for artist to gain exposure on the St. Mary's Strip, creating an environment for success," he said.
The event aims to give artists opportunities to learn how to formally communicate with promoters in the industry. With a new format beginning in May, the first monthly show will be for lyricists and the second for beat makers and producers called The Beat Down.
In addition to his upcoming events, Perez will be performing April 10 for the Haiku D'Etat Tour. He'll be joined by local artists Mr. Composition, Kizer and DJ Dennis Loy.
Haiku D'Etat is the latest tour from the LA based hip-hop trio. The three artists have gained underground recognition for classic freestyles and ground-breaking albums. Abstract Rude has even had his song All Day
on the soundtrack of NBA 2k 5 video game.
