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.

Semi Six - "Beauty"

Wasting no time after unleashing his last banger “DIRT” and appearing on the recently released album from super-group “People Under Detroit” (Illadope + L.A.Z of Clear Soul Forces) is some brand new heat from Semi Six. With a deliverance of clean-cut visuals of himself alongside one beautiful lady for accompaniment the aptly titled “Beauty” offers another sampling of the emcee’s refined abilities. It’s a record that has Semi Six doing what he does best as he illustrates with true lyricism in a fashion that had me reminiscing of Nas style-wise while brandishing his own definitive touch in top-notch form. Shot on location at La Casa Cigars and Lounge, located in Detroit’s Harmonie Park take in the views of “Beauty” above and enjoy!

Blue Tears

Starting off with a piece of the talk Lauren London gave for the beloved Nipsey Hussle, “STAY 10 TOES DOWN, ITS NOT ON YOU ITS IN YOU, AND WHATS IN YOU THEY CANT TAKE AWAY!

Few artist have the ability to take a situation and write a song that makes you feel like your living it. Thats a gift of a true artist/songwriter. This is one of the many gifts the late Nipsey Hussle possessed. It was only fitting that one of the best artist in Detroit express himself over the loss of NIP!  This wasnt any fanboy song, nothing against those but Gov knew Nip and was inspired by his actions.
