After all the games were played and the verses were kicked, eighty-three emcees were heard in season four of RVA Rap Elite's Open Cypher. Mila Mansa emerged as the season's MVP. The slick, cryptic, clever wordsmith has a demeanor that can only be described as cold blooded! A humble confidence that is backed by a deadly pen. Her relevant and powerful punchlines, unique bar structure and flows set her apart. She became the first woman to 3-peat victories as well as the first emcee since the scoring system was created to win without sudden death. Mila had such an impressive season that many overlook the fact that this was her first season with Rap Elite qualifying her for the title of Rookie of the year. ( Bio submitted by Mila Mansa)
