This might not be official, but it is so perfectly edited together that it might as well be. I often wondered why this never became an actual single considering that not only does it convey a powerful message, not only does it sample an infamous 80s tune, but it has that platinum radio-friendly sound.
Crush Groove presents Superfriends 70 – Hip Hop’s Fiercest Battles
From Boogie Down Productions vs. The Juice Crew, to Ice Cube vs. N.W.A., to 2Pac vs. Biggie to Jay-Z vs. Nas, one of the things that has made Hip Hop so vastly different than any other music style is the competitive nature of battle rapping. Whether it be off-the-dome freestyle battling on the streets to earn a reputation, or cerebral written disses towards your enemies; poetic punchline prowess has been a staple of the culture since its roots. On this edition of the critically acclaimed Superfriends Show, The Emperor will be rejoined by Headcase, an emcee who’s belly knows no bounds, and Washington Post Icon and founder of “The Rapospective” Dayo Akinwande, to discuss Hip Hop’s Fiercest Battles. We’ll glance Case and the Emperor’s “Greatest Battles” list as well as Dayo’s “Diss Bliss” series as well.
