One of the most engaging and awe-inspiring aspects of Hip-Hop is the Battle. The moment when two rappers have decided that lyrical warfare is the only way to squelch whatever beef has grown between them.
We've all heard of famous rap battles before, Big and Pac, Jay and Nas, but Beans and Jada's battle for us was one of the most evenly matched.

Join us in tonight's Unhinged Review, as we examine the bars and decide who really won!
"Anyone that listened to rap in the late 90s should remember this rugged line spitter from The Bronx"

Fortunately for us, there is Chuckie Campbell, a writer-poet placing value high on quality lyrics rather than catchy hooks or dances. His most recent full length album is titled "More Die Of Heartbreak" and here is the Unhinged Review.
