The Rap Battle
There has been a lot of press in the last few years related to the rap battle. This is related largely to radio artists who have ‘beef’ with each other and do this vocally in their songs. It also became noticed because of the movie “8 Mile” starring Eminem. The rap battle originated decades ago. The old battles were not violent, but inspired by creativity and trying to one up the other rapper. This stems from emcees competing to prove they are the best. This eventually turned into freestyle competitions where emcees were given a certain amount of time to come up with the best battle rap. There are a variety of these battles held yearly in different areas of the country. Two largely known events are the Blaze Battle and Scribble Jam. There are always rappers who rap gangster style, but they typically do not win. The champion is typically the most creative rapper. Eminem is widely known for his battling prowess before he started his career. Eyedea from Minnesota is also known as a phenomenal battler who won the Scribble Jam in 1999 and the Blaze Battle in 2000.

This kind of "rap battle" seems to let out agression a lot more positively than the other rap battle we have heard about. It also inspires creativity. Perhaps people who look up to suge knight, notorious b.i.g. and tupac shakur, could learn a lesson from these rap "underdogs."
