Friends on MySpace know him as Cifa Skrpx. His hometown just calls him Skrpx. Slim Thug, one of the nation's hottest rappers, calls him a winner.

Slim's debut album “Already Platinum” took him from the underground to the main stage. Now, he's trying to help someone else do the same, by serving as judge for the Energizer® e2® Titanium Technology® Freestlyin’ Music Contest.

“I worked a lot of mixed tapes to get started, to get my skills up,” said Slim Thug. "It’s cool that Energizer e 2 Titanium has taken notice of the music scene that’s taking off in Houston, Miami and other cities and is rewarding underground talent by helping to make things happen with their music career.”

The contest that lived on this past month garnered more than 8,400 friends as they encouraged, playfully trash-talked and voted for their top choices, narrowing it down to two for Slim to make the final call. As winner, Skrpx met Slim and performed his entry live at the DUB Auto Show & Concert in Miami, Fla. on Sunday. Check out for additional photos, clips and his winning entry.
