ifwt_urls-tay-roc-freestyle

#Freestyle26 We back!! Ok this story actually starts a couple weeks back, I got an invite to NOME6 URL rap battle from Mr. Eric Beasley and was excited to go so worked out the schedule, got the tix fro E the Saturday night before, and went down to Irving Plaza, stood in the crowd, experienced it for the first time like an average fan so I could get the full experience. It was SOOOO dope, met some people in the crowd that were cool as hell, let then know I was just jumping into the scene, and they walked me through the Battle Rap scene as THEY see it, as fans, which was a totally diff aspect from the industry. I was able to watch pretty much the whole event, I missed the 1st round and a half of the Ill Will-Charlie Clips battle…. BTW Derrick Rose was there, and Clips used a line to big up Rose and tear down Will, and Will quickly came back and said ‘D Rose you liked the 💩…. Cool, hope your leg stay fucked up’, crowd fell out!! Ok all and all it was a great experience but my actual goal there was to see who would be good to come up and do our freestyle and there were a lot of TOP CHOICES, but the end of the day, we need the main event, the ‘winner’(if you don’t know, URL leaves it up to the public to pick the winner) The Main event…

Hot 97’s Ebro Darden has some history with Rae Sremmurd. At the end of 2015, Complex listed the duo’s debut album, SremmLife, as the third best album of the year – a spot that didn’t sit right with Ebro. In an interview with the makers of the list, he said the guys were dope but in no way deserved to be number 3, particularly because, according to him, they don’t write their own rhymes. It’s been on ever since.
