In a new blog post from Maestro Metaphorics, he lists his Top 10 DMV Battles Of All Time. For those who aren’t aware, Maestro Metaphorics is one of the people responsible for Grind Time Now’s DMV division, who now runs SupaNova Battles. He gives an in-depth look into the battles he chose, and included the videos for each battle. We’ve included an excerpt below, where he explains how the list came about. You can check out his list by clicking here.
I feel i’m an authority to speak on the top 10, as myself, Paradoxx, & Shaka Pitts have taken the battle rap scene in this area to points it had never reached. We took the term “DMV” to a global audience & have made stars of the talented emcees in this area. This list is based on the battle alone, not by the amount of views, the league etc…just the rapping/entertainment itself. With each battle, I’ll try and give a background of how the battles came about and any other relevant nuggets about the battle. This is my list so some battles were a tie in my opinion, so it’s more then 10 battles fuck it. Some dope performances got left off…due to battles being so one sided
