“Fresh Coast” Battle Documentary

If you have even a passing interest in battle rap you’ll probably be aware of the dominance of MCs from the “Fresh Coast”, a scene that seems to include California, Portland, Washington and others. This documentary was put together by Kyle Gray (or Avocado) with some help/footage from Phillip Drummond. It includes a huge number of top battlers, some crazy footage, and because the original run has now sold out Avo took the decision to put the whole thing up on Youtube.

If you’re interested in grown men insulting each other you’ve come to the right place, but it is a lot more than that. A good freestyle MC still has the ability to amaze me, and if you watch some of this then hopefully there’ll be bits that do that to you as well.

A lot of these guys make good music as well and you’ll be able to find some of them among my other posts so go back and have a read of some archive shizzle.
