Battle rappers Dizaster & Cadalack Ron join MC Nocando & Jeff Weiss today to talk about the art of battle rap. They discuss the origins of battle rapping, the transition between battling over beats to battling acapella, and how YouTube brought battle rapping to a world wide audience. Dizaster & Cadalack Ron also tell us about how they got into battle rapping, their most important moment in their battle rap careers, and their thoughts on ghostwriters.

I think another topic you can discuss is the genre of conscious rap, where it came from and who are artists that shaped it, where it has evolved, what defines it, and the constant arugements that conscious rap is the only meaningful and best type of hip-hop made ("its real hip-hop"), discussion about GKMC and how critics try to define Kendrick Lamar as a conscious rapper, etc.

Ayo it's too bad y'all didn't have Diz on under better circumstances. He sounded so frustrated. But no shots at dude. I'd be salty too. First he doesn't get to go on URL over a venue being on some fuck shit and then he has a bad performance against a dude who really didn't deserve to be facing him in the first place. But yay battle rap! Also, when will KOTD follow URL's lead and stop bothering with judging their battles?
