March Madness Beat Battle 2018 Recap & Highlights!

Published

on

A new year, a new champ, a new story of stories to tell. Throughout the night 22 producers armed with two beats per round battled in a bracket style fight to the finish. Five rounds filled with comebacks, sudden death, & some extremely close calls proved for yet another exciting year of March Madness! This year’s championship belt was brought home by Blizzard after fierce battle including a rematch with the man with multiple lives Deejay Quality. The final four of this years beat battle was unique in a number of ways. You see back in round one 2017’s March Madness champion Chris Wellz surpassed DeeJay Quality, but with two comeback rounds in this years bracket judges gave Deejay Quality that second chance on both of those occasions. Coming back twice in the tournament allowed a back to back duel with this years grand champ Blizzard & the two time survivor DeeJay Quality. Where on one side of the final there was a rematch, the other side brought a clash of the familiar reigning champ Chris Wellz &a newer face Wodii Beats. Proving to be a formidable contender Wodii Beats carried on to ultimately face Blizzard after surviving a sudden death vs Chris Wellz. The final matchup left them choosing their final two selections in hopes of taking home the belt. In the end, crowd reaction & judges alike made way for 2018’s March Madness Champion. Congratulations to Blizzard! I’ll be catching up with Blizzard soon so you can learn more about this years champ with an upcoming dose of my new interview series “Seven Questions” only on DetroitRap.com.

You can see how the rounds leading up the final four played out to the left.

Behind the Scenes with “KILLZ” (Big Proof Story)

Published

Killz

I’ve been struggling while deciding what to let you guys read as my first write up here with Detroitrap.com. I’ve decided that I will share a story about myself first to let the readers understand a little more about who I am and the life I have lived in Detroit HipHop. I know so many people in the industry and most are like family so these are some personal memories of my life. This one is featuring one of Detroit’s top emcees @tyfarris.
In 2005 we were both signed to Iron Fist records with our group the Purple Gang and were blessed to tour with the legendary D12 and Slum Village. The tour was packed with Detroit people and we all knew each other and rolled as family as we crossed the country performing every night literally living our dreams. When we hit the streets we were deep and we always made sure everyone was good and nobody would fuck with us cause we were from Detroit and you could just tell we didn’t play that shit.
One day in Rhode Island, out of all places, we get into one of the craziest fights ever and for no reason at all besides defending Detroit. Let me explain Rhode Island to you for the folks who never been. It’s a small state that is the size of most big cities. We had a great show and the whole city was buzzing because the tour was in town. This was the last leg of tour and most of the people who traveled with us were tired or fell back to fuck with some chics, so we weren’t deep when we hit the scene that night.
There was only 4 of us with no security cause we were in Rhode Island, and there is no way we are getting into shit in this town. As soon as we hit downtown people were everywhere because of some black empowerment summit festival and we thought that this was perfect for us to go to. It was me, Proof, Ty, and Dj Salaam Wreck. Salaam had a few chics meet us and they were cold so we like bet we drinking tonight. We hit one bar and got shit popping but if anybody knows Proof, they know we not sitting in one place for too long, so off we go to another bar. As soon as we exited the bar shit went left. There was a group of guys outside maybe 12 of them and they knew the girls we were with. On some shit out of D12 song, one of them runs up but he was on some fan shit. He says I can’t believe it y’all it’s Obie Trice. I’m ctfu instantly cause I know how Proof feels about shit like this. Proof was the fucking man before Eminem blew up and everyone from the city still respected him as such, but out of town was a different story. D12 was triple platinum at the time but there were 6 members of the group and unless you were Bizarre or Em people would mess your name up all the time unless you were their favorite. Proof actually handled this one cool and laughed as well and said naw that ain’t me and we kept going. Dude starts yelling screaming fuck Obie Trice and you a bitch for not signing the autograph. Proof had been in all types of trouble and he didn’t want us to do shit and said let’s go. I looked at Ty and he couldn’t believe it either. Then I thought about it and the chics Salaam had were cold as fuck and losing out on them was not an option.🤣😂😭🤣😂 Ty had this look on his face though like he wasn’t with the giggles this day and said did you hear that Proof…HE CALLED YOU A BITCH. Proof hated being called a bitch and would scrap every time if that shit was said but today he was like let’s go. The next shit sounded like slow motion. FUCK YOU AND ALL THEM DETROIT NIGGAS . Proof looked over and said fuck it go ahead and that’s exactly what we did. I dropped one to the left and Ty dropped two on the right, I saw another guy confused like he didn’t know how we dropped 3 so fast so I clocked his thinking ass and he was down. Ty drops another guy and I see the remnants of Salaam as he had dropped 2 and was sliding another guy across some product table. These niggas couldn’t believe that 3 people had whipped on 8 people So fast and the other 4 started playing peace keeper.
Proof didn’t do a thing in this scrap cause of legal trouble like I told you before so he was with the peace keeping shit as well. Y’all fucked up when y’all said that shit about Detroit. Ty had did this one nigga bad and he was still salt that he was leaking and he grabbed a box cutter and tried to run up again. This shit had Ty heated and he was trying to kill this nigga after that shit. I was laughing so hard cause he so mad and I never seen him go completely crazy like that. He was ready to murder that guy until one of the peace keepers said Obie Trice and them beat y’all ass. Man we were dying laughing as we left.
Moral of the story is , don’t fuck with people from Detroit and never pull a blade on Ty Farris, his face that day still floors me every time. Peace y’all, the anks for looking at a little Detroit history with me.
