Grindtime:Zerostar vs. Remyd Battle in Chicago

YouTube Preview Image

I am not gonna pretend to be interested in battle rapping on the most part. It usually comes off like a bunch of Hip Hop comic book nerds on some Marcon meets dooded playing Mortal Kombat with 15 friends in dirtweed basement on Friday Night.

 But Columbus rapper Zerostar battled St. Louis rapper Remyd in Chicago. From my understanding this Grindtime  battle league is a big deal. Remyd takes it, but I feel like Zero proves why Columbus is better than most places cause the hip hop scene isn’t a bunch of corny nerds.

Remyd best verse is his third where he basically calls Zero a hipster by referencing Drake and Jay-z. Which is funny cause Zero is backpacking  a mfer, that just happens  to live in a city that isn”t redundant. Almost blame the MilkBar on that one and having unique rappers like Jakki in our cities history.

Anyway, Look at the fat whitedood who looks like he is getting an erection everytime Remyd raps.

Here is what Pos posted:

ok. so for the past year i have considered starting a blog but to do it right it seems it would be time consuming. time is something i don’t have very much of these days.so if i did have one it might go something like this(just to let you know, my writing skills suck…i just like the people to read the stories behind it)……

The many projects……..

Copywrite calls me up this past weekend asking for some old songs he did years ago for a best of mixtape he’s about to drop. So while diggin thru my cd collection to find some tracks for him, I come across some Columbus goodies that have never seen the light of day. Some of these I have even forgot what they were and not sure how I even got my hands on them. Regardless, this is some shit I found on accident and would like to share with you….

This was given to me by Numeric about 3 years ago after he was going thru some of his old tapes and he had converted them to cd. This is from a show his group, Poets of Hersey, did with Intalec…THE MENTOR FOR THE CITY! …. at stache’s in ’94 (formely lil brothers). Some of the earliest recordings in Columbus hiphop history right here that I have ever heard. I could go on for days about Intalec and what he stood for in Columbus hiphop in the early/mid 90’s but that’s another time. Enjoy…….
