About two and a half years ago, Danny Myers and Rum Nitty faced off in a small-room battle that got huge attention and launched both their careers. This past weekend, the two put on again in small-room classics on opposite sides of the country.
Though the biggest buzz went to Rum Nitty vs. Ave at URL’s Born Legacy 2, the feedback from LABattleGroundz’ L.A. Beef 2 has been nothing but positive after Danny Myers took on B Dot, one of the top newcomers in the scene, in a battle some people are calling one of the year’s best.
Competition for that title is tight already, with Iron Solomon vs. Dizaster, Psycoses vs. Gjonaj and the aforementioned Rum Nitty vs. Ave all getting tossed around by different fan bases as standouts from 2016 so far.
The battle, presented by LA Battle Groundz @ #LABEEF2, has already been mentioned in conversations as potential “Battle of The Year” by respected personalities in Battle Rap Culture.
Hip Hop Legends and factors in the industry such as Ras Kass (The HRSMN), Glasses Malone (Cash Money, Hoo-Bangin), Rifleman aka Ellay Khule (Hip Hop Kclan, Project Blowed, Good Life Bullyz), OG Red Rum (Bangin On Wax), Big2daboy (Compton’s Most Wanted) and Mister CR (Project Blowed, Good Life Bullyz) were in attendance to witness this pivotal moment in Battle Rap History.
Shortly after the battle dropped online Jay Blac and CAPS (AngryFan) encouraged their fans and followers to watch and Support this Battle, even going to the extent of dropping impromptu video blogs about it.
