On Friday, July 6, the Flip Top Dos Por Dos and B-Side’s Boom Bap Fridays collaborated for the semis and it was spectacular. I’ve been an avid fan of Flip Top for quite some time now. So when I was invited to spin, I felt like the luckiest girl in the world.
Aside from the sickest sets courtesy of Don P, Red-I, Supreme Fist, this guy whose name I did not catch and myself [ ;) ] we were serenaded by beat box battles and battle MCs. The energy was intense. And all were anticipating the main event, Loonie and Abra vs. Shehyee and Smugglaz.
I’m Team LA. They lost this one. I’m still Team LA. They won to me. Lyrically. But I’ve won battles before because of crowd reaction, so I can’t really hate. When speaking to Loonie after the battle, he said, “It’s all good. I need to feel that once in a while.” Spoken like a true living legend.
The battle was epic. I can’t wait till the footage comes out. Abangan niyo DITO.
