Last night Edo G and Benzino two legends of the Boston Hiphop scene took to IG live to participate in a track for track battle, who’s music is better. 1st the stream was plagued with issues, from music sounding like it was played through a clock radio, going too long on songs should’ve kept it between 1 and 2 minutes instead of full songs, constant internet drops with bad video quality, to IG just killing the stream all together. Despite that, songs were played by both of them and the IG live was filled with a who’s who of Boston, from MC’s, producers, writers, journalists, photographers, among others who’ve been in the Boston scene dating back 3 decades. You had some legends in there such as NORE which was cool to see him supporting Boston. At one point in the stream there was nearly 1000 people which I thought was a pretty great number for these 2 on Wednesday night. Now I can’t find part one of the stream but I’ll update it when I do, I stayed for 8 or 9 songs or at least til the stream dropped. My score was 6-1-1 Edo G. What’s the verdict on your end?
Two legendary Producers; One Stage. Classic
The post DJ Premier Vs Pete Rock DJ Battle Live at The Middle East appeared first on The Crypt.
Some rare footage of the some of the greatest, Busta Rhymes spittin some bars that later became WOO HAA!! and then Ol Dirty Bastard just destroyed shit. Incredible shit a rare battle that actually had some footage to go with it. I wonder if this is what lead to the WOO HAA!! Remix? Only Busta knows.
Slaine apparently was out a couple years ago and he took his music to the street things got heated and Slaine slapped a kid, really no big deal. It was actually pretty funny to hear the kid talking all “street” Slaine slaps him and the kid doesnt want any “im not about that”, “There’s cops over there!” lol. Here’s a photo I took of Slaine and Jus Allah about 5 years ago
Mac Danzig of UFC and Ultimate Fighter winner, when he’s losing fights in the UFC he takes to twitter. Mac had some shit to say about Slaine setting off his pal Jus Allah. Jus Allah went on to rant on twitter, and is still ranting. See if you decypher the tweets below, also watch Jus Allah get all racist calling people wiggers.
The most shocking piece of information to come out of all of this is that Jus Allah has never heard a DMX’s It’s dark and Hell Is Hot or Biggie’s READY TO DIE album!!!!
The brother VX went up against S.Gram a couple weeks via SharkTank Battleground, homie bodied it.
I assume it’s something that looks like this. P.S. fuck the camera man for stopping the footage after the first whack.

You may or may not know that one of the biggest battles ever took place last night. It’s been hyped for months and we been hyping it as well, it’s sponsored by our friends Planet X Records and they even flew out from Boston to catch the show. The word around the cypher is Canibus choked hard. I think everyone was expecting Bis to drop gems as hes done on dozens of tracks over the years. In my opinion Canibus had a lot riding on this. He’s dropped multiple albums, some classic records, some classic diss tracks, has stolen the show on multiple albums and last night he threw it all away to battle Dizaster of KOTD and failed his peers and fans.
I’m a big fan of Canibus and that can be seen cuz I post his stuff semi regularly. While I’m not a fan of all his shit their is a good chunk of it which I do love, his work with the Lost Boyz is timeless. Last night was just horror show, Canibus started semi strong in the first round with some good lines, some used lines, which had the crowd roaring, and he looked like he was having fun but 3:00 mins into round one he just toppled. One moment the crowd was loving Canibus hanging on every word then all of sudden… Silence. The crowd chanted for him kinda like Ali vs Holmes but this time Holmes hadn’t even fought back yet. What could’ve been another shining moment in a pretty good career turned into a black cloud of shame which I believe won’t leave the realm of Canibus’s head for some time. He even resorted to pulling out the loose leaf and tried to spit off paper which ended ironically in a disaster.
Sadly, I think that was the end of Canibus unless he does another battle for the love. I’m sure it was bittersweet for Dizaster putting the ol’ dog to sleep. I know this post seems like let’s hate Canibus but I don’t i’ll always check for Canibus material and support whatever he does, and i’ll do my best to try and erase this from the memory banks. But props to him for giving it a go not backing out, and showing up in a sling for some reason. I think many rappers wouldn’t have the guts to do this sort of thing knowing whats on the line especially when you’re a legend but 99% of the dudes from his era wouldn’t be up for the challenge, never mind show up for it. The debate of LL vs Canibus will never end but it’s crystal clear who won this one. Props to Dizaster.
I guess real rappers bleed in the trenches…. – Canibus KOTD
PH kills shit.
