    its a new thing on dnb arena that you can watch live events/interviews etc on. You need a fast internet connection to get the pictures properly, i can only get sound

    Quite funny that in america where proper hiphop was born, you get gay mcs trying to imitate the worst possible style of british Mcing.
    Come on for fuck's sake! sounds like happy hardcore Mcing only worse

    I really hope your not talking bout my boy James( Messinian). He'll eat up any UK MC:gun: He knows when to flow and when not to. Example; Like when Skibba and half of the others start spittin' over tracks that already have vocals. That just ruins the track. And another example; Skibba again.....NEVER SHUTS HIS FUCKING MOUTH:mad: He has ruined soooooo many good sets. the guy never shuts up. At least Amercian MC's let the DJ have the spot light. And they don't say their name more than the DJ's( like Skibba) :shake:

    ^^^^^^^^

    To add to that I will agree that the US does have some pretty bad MC's, but then again so does the UK and Brazil. So lets name shall we(cause I'm sure sombody will ask me too).....

    Skibbadee
    Moose
    Shabba D
    Darrison
    Fatman D


    So if I can name off that many UK and other places MC's let's see how many you can name off here in the states:finger2:

    No one really knows the names off american mc's in the uk, as none of em become big names over here-do they even mc over here?? maybe they aint known cos they aint very good??

    A mate of mine said he heard TC izlam say this rhyme

    "who smokes crack? I do I do"

    Not sure if it really was him but it's pretty funny.
    I'd not really go as far as to say that US MCs aren't known over here because they're not very good, but I hardly see anyone pushing back the barriers here, except in the field of coke sniffing and crack smoking
