On a quest to shoot some hip hop related stuff out here in Sacramento, I stumbled on a real life battle. The event was called Verbal Kombat and it featured MCs from Sacramento, The Bay Area and Southern California. The MC battle is an interesting dynamic as each participant tries to verbally destroy the man (or woman) standing in front of them with the most vile and clever of rhyming insults. Then after its all over, they shake hands and hug. Teflon temperaments, I guess. Shout out to First Dirt who hosted the whole thing. Hopefully there will be many more in the future.
