He took the stage with his mic, and began to speak and sing in a style unfamiliar to the residents of the western side of the wall.

Only twenty minutes later, the MC entered the stage and took the mic. Riding the raucous applause from the soul-shook audience, the MC shouted into the mic: “Give it up one more time for our Brother from across the wall, The Prophecy!“.
