DWRC (Do We Really Care): Life’s Little Idiosyncrasies (and Idiots) on a Hip Hop Level [Summer Madness 3]
Summer. Madness.3. smh us battle rap fans (of which I am a HUGE one), waited eagerly for this URL(Ultimate Rap League) event, it’s the biggest URL event of the year and it always promises some great match ups and usually delivers some noteworthy drama and performances. You gonna get this work Loaded Lux SM2. This year Math Hoffa vs Serius Jones battle ended before the 3rd round with a punch swung by of course Math, again (see Math Hoffa vs Dose). Battle rap is a festival of disrespectful bars with an ever growing theatrical component but this, was just some bullshit! From the various fan blogs and Serius and Math’s blogs I get the sense that URL could seriously use an event coordinator,battles were hours off scheduled time no food available but the bar popping, to me this seems like a recipe for disaster. Two of the battles didn’t happen some sources say it was because of the on stage punch others say it was time issue either way it was a bad look for URL and Battle rap as a whole. Now don’t get me wrong I still loooooooove Battle Rap and will be watching Conceited vs Hitman as soon as I finish typing this, but as the validity of the genre grows,(URL on BET,Drake involved in KOTD (King of The Dot), QOTR (Queen of the Ring) expanding its reach) these types of incidents are counter productive to the culture so please ladies and gentlemen keep it to hard bars leave the punches alone.
