Grandmaster Caz: Kool Moe Dee Upped Standard for Battle Rap

Grandmaster Caz  Kool Moe Dee Upped Standard for Battle Rap   YouTube

In an exclusive interview with VladTV, Grandmaster Caz talks about the essence of battle rap and how he views it today.

Caz says in the early days of Hip Hop, every rapper was essentially a battle rapper. He also says the rhymes were focused on the lyrical skills versus the “man to man” complex the game has now. The pioneer says the first battle to get to that point was Kool Moe Dee and Bizzy B.

With Bizzy B being more of a “party rock” type of artist, Kool’s lyrics were more personal, which changed the shift of battle rap.

Caz says the current trend of battle rappers threatening one another in battles overshadows the lyrical content fans are supposed to judge the rappers on.

Another battle that played out in that similar manner was an impromptu battle between Melle Mel and Mikey D.
