I somehow stumbled upon a series of videos on Youtube documenting a freestyle battle in Shanghai. They brought in a couple of Beijing rappers and let them loose on stage with the Shanghai guys and this is what happened:
Man, it’s so vicious. A lot of different ways to say I’m gonna fuck you up, fuck your girl and straight up fuck you. It’s interesting that all the Beijing guys are dressed kind of thuggish (if that’s possible) and the Shanghai guys look like random dudes off the street.
If you watch most of the clips, MC Jverson (Shanghai) seems to dominate a lot of the battles, but he just sort of shouts obscenities and really going at people. There was a guy from Hunan that was trying to calm things down. And another Beijing guy that used his time on stage to say “we’re all in this together” (sadly, that’s how long they lasted). And the last clip, Young Kin (Beijing’s finest!) steps in and rips Jverson a new one.
I think this is the beginning of a beautiful feud.
