I was having a fucked up day until I saw this. 
I don't know who these dudes are or what the hell they're talking about.

But it's great.

You tube is great.  

Just great .

"Listen, I'm really mad!"

I don't even know what to say about this.     

This shit kills me. 
Easily top 5 most unintentionally funny shit of all time.

I probably watch it about twice a day.    No matter how many times I watch it, it just never gets old.  

To be honest I didn't know much about the whole underground youtube battle world.  
here's the scenario:

I was on this tour recently with Dilated Peoples, 88 Keys and Aceyalone.   
I didnt know Acey too well, but being that, like myself,  he smoked extreme ammounts in extreme intervals, many days and nights it would end up just me in him in the smoking section in the back of the tourbus 

submerged in a straight up dope cloud

 while we came up with theories,
 argued about random bullshit like two old smoked out philosophers,
 and looked for ways to take our minds off the fact that we were living out of a bus for 3 weeks.  

 The air situation was super wack in the back section. 
 There was no grey area.  It was either 100 degrees heat or a fucken polar windtunnel.  

 What can I say, it was one of those grind tours. 
 As long as the shit didnt flip over I had no complaints. 

  One night i stumbled into the backroom after a show and saw Acey watching something on his laptop, focused.
 Boredom ensued. 

 While twisting what was left of the mediocre 'road weed' on top of the latest wack rap publication, i leaned over to see what it was he was so focused on. 

He then put me on to this whole sub-world of rap battle clips on youtube. 

 It was new to me, but I later discovered most of the clips were years old.    All these characters, famous battles, different cities and locations, wild nerd interviews before and after. 

 Like  a mini nerdhop WWF.    

At first it was just some quick comic relief between spliffs and family guy episodes. 

 But I found myself in the back of the bus dolo some nights going back to youtube, really intruiged.  Typing in the names of dudes that I was starting to become familiar with. 

I was impressed.  
 It was becoming an addiction.       

look it was tour, ok.
Either that or the fumes from the bus engine were getting to me.   


Although many of the clips are legendary, this one by far stood out as the most entertaining.   

 It is a two on two battle between the USA and Brittian on the rooftop of the Monte Carlo Hotel in Las Vegas.   

Im not gonna give  a whole book report on it.

Every little detail about this is so incredibly and unintentionally hilarious that i don't even know where to start.   

My personal highlights are
 3:13 - 3:18  
 5:51 - 5:58 

and the main event.........

6:40 - 6:52 ( especially 6:49)    " Yo, im really mad!"

Oh yea, smoke first for full effect.
