I got to talk to Ness Lee (who for those of you who don’t know is an amazing artist, Producer and Battle MC from Atlanta) fresh off his historic trip to South Africa to battle one of the motherlands most respected Hip Hop artist Tumi. When asking Ness about the experience he said
“Brah. Shit was a fucking dream come true. People always say they want to go to africa but thats not an easy thing to do. the fact that battle rap took me there made it that much better man”
To say that these two MC’s put on a classic is an understatement. this battle was one of the best i have EVER seen. And the crowd was just as on point being energized, un biased, made noise for great lines… and then shut the fuck up so they could hear the next one. American and Canadian audiences need to step up your spectator game. Just Sayin b.
