KOOL MOE D V BUSY B 1981 THE WHOLLE THING!!!
So one of the most famous old skool battles was between kool moe d and busy b. There were plenty of other well known battles like cold crush v fantastic but this is my favorite. At the time kool moe d was just starting to make noise with the treacherous 3. When i was a kid growing up, i actually thought that dude was blind like stevie wonder and thats why he ALWAYS had his star trek shades on..Busy b was dope but definitely more of a party mc. Listen to how prepared Kool moe d is for this battle...he went in hard!!! and even by today's standards he still sounds dope.He killed poor Busy who obviously didnt think it was gonna be a serious thing..
.Busy B came back out in 87 with the GOD Jazzy Jay and released some classic records with Running things, and Suicide,then disappeared. Kool Moe D did well up to 87 then LL Cool J released Jack The Ripper and basicly ended his career. LOADS OF OTHER BLOGS HAVE BUT UP THIS TAPE, BUT THIS IS THE WHOLE BATTLE...90 minutes worth, which im pretty sure aint ever been posted anywhere.....This tape is dope because it really captures what the hip hop scene was like back in 81. Thrers not thousands and thousands of screaming people more like a couple of hundred. Also for one of the 1st times ever we see New York Mc's spitting over a UK ARTISTS MUSIC(Junior Mama used to say) Cheek out the compare of the night and how he cusses the hecklers hard.....Pure jokes, you gotta here it....
