evolution of hip hop pt 2




One of the biggest things in the hip hop culture is the battle. The test of skill. The ruthless competition. The sweetness of victory and the agony of defeat.

Before Biggie and Pac, Before Nas and Jay, Before 50 and everybody in the rap game there was Busy Bee Starski vs. Kool Moe Dee. Kool Moe Dee cleaned up the floor with Busy. My favorite line is put the "Ba Didi Ba B.S. on hold" You can check out clips of this battle here

How about the Moe Dee and LL feud. LL was rocking bells with that one. I don't think anyone really decided who won that war of mics. Who can forget KRS-ONE's "The Bridge is Over", instant classical diss on MC Shan? Where my ladies at? Right there with MC Lyte's "10% Diss" on Roxanne Shante I believe. Classical Hip Hop 101, Baby!
