Whether they agree with him or not, most would agree that the ‘Kris’ (KRS-ONE) articulates his positions on even the most controversial topics plainly…when given the chance. Surfing the ‘Tube (YouTube), I found this Vlad-TV clip (above) in which KRS-ONE clarifies comments he made soon after 9/11 to The New Yorker magazine that were were taken out of context. KRS-ONE also talks about today’s Hip-Hop, battles, and his respect for the rap greats.
Cassidy flips a variety of popular beats for this 10 minute diss record aimed at Meek Mill. When it comes to ‘lyrical battle bars’ there’s no doubt that I knew Cassidy was gonna body this before I even heard it. Many ill lines in this joint right here serving as a swift counterpunch to Meek Mill’s ‘Repo’ diss record aimed at Cassidy. Crazy!
“After T.I.’s private listening party at Sigma Sounds (located in Philadelphia, Pa) there was a rap battle. The battle was between Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers artist Lil Snupe (from Louisiana) against Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson‘s Jaccpot artist Retro (from West Philly). Meek Mill and DeSean put up $10,000 each on their artist. While T.I., Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, Trae Tha Truth and T.I.’s cousin Rashad (who the movie ATL is based on). Everyone agreed to 5 rounds of rapping for the two artists. At the end, when all of the judges expressed why they chose Lil Snupe (Dream Chasers) the winner, DeSean Jackson left the room.

It’s really sad to see how far a once respected emcee like Canibus has fallen off. Dead ass serious. I’m not joking. I genuinely feel embarrassed for Canibus for all the bad moves he’s been making recently like dissing random people like J. Cole & other rather erratic behavior. The worse would have to be his appearance in a Pay-Per-View rap battle that was taking place during the NBA Finals & Pacquiao Vs. Bradley fight. I wasn’t watching this at the time but my twitter was on fire from many people who did. A few of them shot me this link to a wounded Canibus, literally & figuratively, who lost his battle to a lyricist by the name of Dizaster after he pulled out a notepad to read his lyrics & even lost his place several times while trying to recite them. I seriously doubt Canibus can salvage his once stellar reputation any longer. There’s no good in this. Just bad, ugly, & uglier.
In a recent interview, Papoose talks about the recent battle with Common Vs. Drake & also speaks on one of the greatest battles to have ever occured in hip hop between Nas & Jay-Z. I have to agree with Pap that Nas did indeed ‘Ether’ Jay-Z in that battle.
Common hops on the Rick Ross, French Montana, & Drake joint to respond back to the Toronto kid’s subliminal disses. Honestly I don’t feel like Drake would win a lyrical battle against Chi-town’s finest emcee unless someone wrote the battle raps for him. On a blackberry. Ironically enough Drake’s verse on this joint sounds like Rick Ross wrote it.
