Speaking of the PGs

At Battlescene, we’ve always had a fond appreciation for up and coming talent. So when we saw Diesal’s last PG against Krucial Ken, we weren’t surprised to see him back on the scene on the world’s most respected battle league. Fans often place a...

The State of Battle Rap

I oftentimes ponder where battle rap is headed and what the future holds for the culture.  After much thought, the only truth that I have found is that it is a very difficult question to answer.  The 2016 season was different from...

Verdict Corner with Stack Almighty

Check out this exclusive interview with Detroit Battle Rapper and Zoo Faculty leader, Stack Almighty at KOTD’s GZ event, Glove Up, that went down in the Detroit Metro two weeks ago.  He gave us the inside scoop on the origins of the Zoo....

The Glove Up Pregame: Sno Vs MegaDef

The Glove Up card continues to heat up with quality matchups. I’m not quite sure what happened to Gunn. Perhaps, he felt like he was running in a gerbil’s wheel. Though he made many strides on the Motor City Battlescene circuit, he...

GLOVE UP PREGAME: BEZ vs. TIMES

This might just be the best matchup on the card. I’ll leave it up to you to do the research on the gladiators but let’s get one thing straight: Times is a force to be reckoned with. In his bout against

GLOVEUP PREGAME: NPOSE vs. MICHAEL ICE

Let’s face it, Detroit Battle Rap is different. In fact, URL attempted to exploit it in their earlier years but the streets collided with business. Consequently, Battlescene hasn’t seen URL in Detroit since the infamous incident with Arsonal . Nevertheless, KOTD obviously sees...
