Time for Christmas rappin': For the ninth year, the Illstyle Rockers will break out all four elements of hip-hop for the crew's Annual X-mas Jam. In addition to rhymes, beats, graffiti art, and breakin', this year's extravaganza doubles as a CD-release party for B-boy DJ Forrest Getemgumps' The Best Part (Brooklyn Sole Edition), one hardcore breakbeat mix. Getemgump will also spin old-school and funk, and the jam will feature live performances by MC Suave Goddi (pictured) and FX the Human Beatbox.
