MTV‘s Sway Calloway “The thing that made that era so great is that nothing was contrived. Everything was still being discovered and everything was still innovative and new”.
Writer William Jelani Cobb says “what made the era they inaugurated worthy of the term golden was the sheer number of stylistic innovations that came into existence… in these golden years, a critical mass of mic prodigies were literally creating themselves and their art form at the same time”.

BIG Classic for me,love it!
Ill Will, BET’s Champion, proved to the world, why he and his Team Homi are not going anywhere.Big Kannon is one of the most slept on battle rappers out here, and the Chicago native will eventually get his due. Battle Rap today, has incorporated different regions, ages, and races for new blood!
We have to venture into Chicago, Pontiac, Harlem, Brooklyn, New Jersey, the DMV and the South. So many don’t get a chance to be on that stage. No league should assume they will ever overtake another league.
Every league that begins, does not mean they are trying to REPLACE another league. If anything it gets more men involved in the culture to build and one day grace the longest running and largest of the battle leagues.
If it wasn’t for smaller leagues such as AHAT, we would never heard the barz and fire in the late rapper Young B The Future, it takes sponsors and unification and new blood we must cross different generations and styles.
No one should have an all black lead, or an all white league in battle rap. Ill Will mishaps are behind him, and his Team Homi family should be proud of Will that resides in Pontiac, Michigan!
You get the crumbs of an unfaithful partner, that will not be faithful to anyone.
You waste your time hoping and praying and wishing for a sign of love, dummy.
If you stop helping the coward cheat, maybe you would find love and respect of your own.
You don’t want to face the truth of your desperation and that you might not even be the main side chick!
Don’t be blindsided, and don’t make a fool out of yourself.
Protect yours and your dignity. Long story short, we are territorial by design.
It is embedded in our DNA.
