Battle is the Core system of Hiphop.

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.
you talk to much shit!!! lets BATTLE THEN BITCH!!! wha?? where ya going!! hahahahah homeboy is all talk and no skillz.

HIPHOP IS PROVING SOMETHING NOT SHIT TALKING.

Just like u've got the cell in Biology
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!
If u're doin' rap and u ain't got no battle, it's like u're in a boat and u ain't got no paddle.
