Cortez Vs. Prez Mafia | BodyBag?? |

Well, this was a definite loss for Prez Mafia.  I can’t believe he struggled through all three rounds.  It’s just not like him at all.  Both he and Cortez are known for their preparation and consistency which are both important for emcees...

RBE | ShowOff Vs. O-Red | Seperation Point

ShowOff has the potential to be a franchise emcee, but for some reason that fate isn’t becoming a reality for him.  He has boundless potential and a solid work ethic, yet it seems that something is missing and I can’t quite put...

Brizz Rawsteen vs. Ill Will: French Toast

Let’s clear the record. Both of these guys had a solid battle. However, it’s clear that Ill Will is still earning his respect in Irving Plaza and Brizz, well Brizz is a true superstar of the culture at this point. We won’t...

CHESS vs. AVE: LESSON LEARNED

If you watch battles enough, you know this one is an easy one to call. However, it still remains a quality battle that exhibits the many pitfalls that battle rappers can face on the toughest stage in the art. This isn’t the...

Fettuccine20 Vs Mackk Myron: MACKK MURDERER

If you were there, this felt like a body but YouTube presents a different story. In reality, it’s not that 20 was bad. It’s just that Myron was that good. It’s no easy feat to step in NYC, especially when you’re dealing with...

This is the kind of battle that commands respect because we are able to see battle rap’s diversity in other regions like Louisiana and Seattle. Overall, we get a C+ battle with an incredible third round from Newton. How ironic is it that HA’s hype...

TECH 9 VS JERRY WESS | Let’s Get To That ! |

While I must admit this wasn’t the most impressive battle, it was decent enough to keep my attention for three rounds.  Performance and lyrical content were the key factor to keeping this battle interesting.  Oddly enough we didn’t get a heavy dose...

XCEL vs. LOSO: Another Holy War

In the last year, we’ve seen a rise of Christian battle rappers. Perhaps Saga was the first to capture our attention but since then, we’ve seen A. Ward and now Loso. Loso is just as dangerous as A. Ward. They both have...

BEZ vs. OT 7EVEN : Brawl in the Cave

There’s no way to describe the capacity in which Michigan Battle Rap is heating up right now. Let’s face it, the scene has changed. This is partly due to the lack of Scheme Street’s presence which we haven’t seen in quite sometime. Nevertheless, Alpha...

$ vs. Gambit | Not Enough Punches |

First, let me be clear about two things concerning this battle. This bout exemplifies Detroit Battle Rap. Detroit battlers have a different swag like most regions. What sets Detroit Battle Rap apart is the emphasis on personals.  Secondly, this is the best...
