Big Tom (-aka- TomBig7) put beats behind the bars from battles and makes them fit like its a real song. For this one, Cortez: “Ask For Me”, he took the best Cortez lines from MCMI WARZONE: CORTEZ vs AUTOMATIC RAY (from New Years Revolution at Radio Bushwick). He has a whole mixtape of them if you like this one, called “Beats Behind the Battles Mixtape” which you can DOWNLOAD FREE. The chorus he made for this one is hot! Cortez should really do a song with that “Ask for me” hook.
What do y’all think? Should Ray come back with a remix of his own? Subscribe to Youtube.com/MCMIreport for more MCMI WARZONE battles.

GrandMixer DXT is arguably the first DJ turntablist. He was mentored by Kool Herc and is featured on Herbie Hancock’s groundbreaking single “Rockit”. He and Baby T, one of the very first female MCees, are two Hip Hop pioneers who have a lot of history to share, telling stories about the first parties and Hip Hop performances in the 1970’s & 1980’s.
TheBeeShine.com interviewed both of them together, providing a fascinating glimpse into the adventures of another time, when baby Hip Hop was in its infancy stage. In those days, it was not about a check. It was about rocking the party, being creative and having fun. Of course, there was also a lot of violence that cast a dark shadow over the culture.
