The R.A. The Rugged Man Show (aka 'Ignorant Long Island Guy's Podcast’) is back, and this time it’s the Battle Rap Episode. R.A. The Rugged Man is joined by legendary Chicago emcee Juice, one of the greatest freestyle/battle rappers of all time. The 1997 Scribble Jam champion has participated in some of hip-hop’s most iconic battles, famously defeating Eminem, Rhymefest, Common, Kanye West, and many more. Also joining the show are 2004 Scribble Jam winner and 2015 King Of The Dot champion Illmaculate, acclaimed Wu-Tang affiliated wordsmith Killah Priest, and producer Teddy Roxpin, who supplies beats for a few freestyle sessions. The four artists discuss the foundational role of battling in the art of MCing, freestyle vs. written rhymes, battling as a rite of passage, insulting opponents in the most disrespectful way possible, changes in the hip hop industry, the evolution of battle rap from the 90s to today, and much more.
