STUEY NEWTON VS. HA DOUBLE: #TALKTOTHATBOY!

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...

Charlie Clips vs. Rum Nitty: Bars Filled With Rum

You almost wished this battle took place around 2014- when Clips was on fire. In today’s scope of battle rap Charlie Clips, though still legend, is not the contender he use to be. This battle shows a stark contrast between two styles....

Saint Mic Vs. A.Ward | Fallen Saint |

In life, you have to know when enough is enough.  We’ve all had the Kool-Aid with too much sugar or the rice that has too much salt.  So we all know that having too much of any one thing can destroy whatever...

E-Ness Vs. Cortez | Old School vs New School |

E Ness has one entertaining style of battle rap.  You won’t see many who can outperform the Philly emcee who raps with more tenacity than a raging bull.  I wasn’t sure whether I should take Ness serious or just laugh outright at...
