Rap Battles – have you been keeping up?
Published on March 26th, 2013 | by Nabeel
Well it’s been quite the journey!
Since The Snake Pit opened up, we’ve gone through 5 epic matchups with all sorts of skills flying over the place. Contestants showed themselves to be more than competent battlewise. As we head to our last matchup between BigMo and Gangsta Lex, I’d just like to say, it’s been a helluva lot of fun working with you guys.
The venue was opened up as a place for rappers, poets and writers to face off against others, learn, grow and put their talents out there! The written format holds a different sort of opportunity - but is no less important than live performances. To that end, I personally don’t think this is about winning or losing, or who ends up being champ at the end of the day. Sure that’s important – but living to fight another day is way more important to Kuwait Music culture.
We hope to have major rap battles like these every 3 months or so, perhaps a bit more fast paced depending on the organisation level of contestants. In the mean time, if ever you feel like challenging someone to a battle, either in person or via us, The Snake Pit will host for you and for our vast readership. We already have one rapper waiting to challenge some of the others.
Remember you can access all our rap battles from the Social menu by going to Contests and Competitions.
Keep reppin Kuwait City – Locals and Expats together! Peace y’all!
