Open Letter To The Midwest

Dear Midwest battle MC's

Let me preface this letter by saying I've been a huge supporter and fan of all of you. Detroit, Chicago and especially St. Louis, have given battle rap a steroid shot that it desperately needed to grow stronger. Truthfully, with all due respect to URL and every MC that's put in work, battle rap wouldn't be where it is this very day if it wasn't for Aye Verb. So you all deserve a round of applause for your contributions to the current culture.

With that being said, let me kindly ask you all to slow your fuckin roles and get off your own jocks.

Firstly, in regards to Summer Madness, are yall gonna make it a tradition to get on twitter bitchin every year the monday after? Good fuckin lord what is with yall crying about being booed and us in NY being biased? Do you even know what bias means or do you just like throwing it around because it sounds good when you lose? Lets break it down real quick maybe I'm crazy or something. Bias:

Read that. Digest the definition. Now look at the names of every rapper who has been booed at a URL event in Webster Hall since the first Summer Madness.

Tech 9
Bill Collector
John John Da Don
Math Hoffa
Charlie Clips
Loaded Lux
Iron Solomon
E. Ness
Serius Jones
 Aye Verb
Hitman Holla
Midwest Miles
Young Kannon

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I see 11 battle rappers from the east coast, and 6 from the midwest. If New York is supposedly biased against you as you claim, why are more New York and east coast rappers getting booed off the fuck off stage?

Next, scrolling through twitter yesterday I see you guys decided to start a union against URL because you feel you don't get paid enough or certain rappers got paid more. You all want 10k per performance. I hate to break it to you but none of you are individually worth 10k. Especially Big T, X-Factor, and Hitman Holla. Mook, Iron and Lux got paid whatever they were paid for a reason. Their names sold those tickets. You still got paid, including flights and hotel rooms, to rap for 9 to 15 minutes. What are yall complaining about?

It's just sickening to see this much whining in battle rap these days. Yall need to get it together. If yall wanna say fuck URL and never battle there again go right ahead. Organik aint giving you more than 1K so good luck. JC, B. Magic, John John and Chilla Jones would take your spots on the main stage in a heart beat.
