    you probably know all this and i dont want to sound patronising:

    keep it clear...people (with music taste) hate muffled gibberish

    get the mic levels sorted early if you can...otherwise you'll fuck your voice/sound crap...result: embarrassment

    ignore the twats who hassle you for the mic....if they were any good they probably wouldnt be asking in the first place.

    let the mixes roll -accompany rather than dominate the music

    forgot 1 important thing....

    if you fuck up a chat/rhyme, dont worry about it. carry on and put it behind you, otherwise your set will go rapidly downhill cos all your doing is thinking about the fuck up...which makes you fuck up more/sound dull...its a vicious cycle!!

    Practise...Record Practise...Listen back.

    Try and get out an 'do 'it' as soon as you can.

    Get a good demo together and spread it around, much more likely to get you sets than pestering promoters and other MCs on the nite...

    If I were you I wouldnt hang about. You need to 'get in there' now. There are that many people MC'in now days.
    Different people look for different things in MC's so try and cater for everyone and remember not to chat all the way through a mix. Talk to the crowd as well as ryme to them. And get the crowd involved, "I say DJ, you say......... etc etc".
