For those of you that haven’t heard of Grind Time, or didn’t see our previous post on them, it’s The World’s #1 Rap Battle League started by emcee’s for emcee’s. I’ve been a huge fan of Grind Time, and a lot of the rappers involved for as long as I’ve known about the league, and certain battlers based on performances prior to the league’s formation. When I first heard about Battle Of LA 3, I knew I had to be there, and I waited impatiently for a few months till that day finally came. The event, better known as “BOLA 3” was held on New Years Eve at The Airliner, in Los Angeles, and I couldn’t think of a better way for me to have brought in 2010 than being at this event. It was my first time at a Grind Time event, and it was easily one of the funnest nights of my life, a jam packed night of entertainment from start to finish! Grind Time has single-handedly taken the battle scene to new heights, and I look forward to another big year from them. Much love to @LushOne, and everyone else involved in making this event happen! I hope they hold more events in Los Angeles, cause I will definitely be there every time!
I will keep this post updated with links to each battle as they come out, stay tuned!
Okwerdz gave us a shoutout in one of his video updates on his Youtube Channel and to my surprise he also gave a shoutout later in the night during a freestyle cypher he did during his set with Dizaster, Sahtyre, Cadalack Ron, etc when I decided to pull out the video camera. I will post that footage later. Big ups to Okwerdz for showing love!
