    A Dose Of Realness For Battle Rap "Analysts"

    in Hip Hop Music

    "When Sh** Gets Real" gives a a dose of realness for the battle rap analysts out there....we've been discussing the good and the bad of battle rap lately with our SPECIAL GUESTS, and have kind of hinted on the analysts who judge battles and battlers from the outside. This show is especially dedicated to them...to the real rap enthusiasts who have supported the culture from day one, to the teach but can't do people, to the "analysts" who sit around critiquing and debating battles, but do not yet have a clear concept of what real bars are. There is a difference between bars and rhyming well...and we will define that difference.


    We will have some SPECIAL GUESTS joining us, as always! We will be announcing them the day of the show, so keep an eye out! But believe this...only real bar spitters were even asked to participate, so we are definitely gaining some valuable knowledge by having them on the show!


    "When Sh** Gets Real" is ready...are you?
