you battle on the Mic (Rap)
you battle on the floor (Breakdance)
you battle on turntables (Turntablism)
you battle on the wall (Graffiti)
When you find yourself competing using any one of these you are a true hiphop head not the shit talking, preaching muthafucking backpacker.
HIPHOP IS PROVING SOMETHING NOT SHIT TALKING.
and as u've got the atom in Physics,
u've got "battle" as the core of Hip-hop.
Hip-hop without MC's battling on the mic or DJ's battling on the turntable is incomplete!
"I just bought this huge keg of Natty Light. Want some?"
"Hell yeah - I'll battle that."
"Gary, when are you gonna battle that 30 page paper that's due tomorrow?"
