This is crazy, mane. New Orleans, Louisiana is killing the underground game with these beat battles. My man Lyrikill of the Eupham collective has been hosting these things and bringing out the best in the tri-state area and quite honestly...I'm hating...lol.
It is rumored that the beat-battle is coming to a city near you as they are going to be touring with the Soundclash crew going to other cities to make it a national showcase in 2009.
Here is a nice trailer showing some great highlights of the Soundclash.
