Battle of LA 3: New Year’s Eve

If you’re in LA, here’s another thing to look forward to before the year ends. Everybody’s favorite battle circuit, Grind Time: West Coast Division, is hosting what should turn out to be an epic night of MC battles.

Remember Jin who dominated BETs 106 & Park’s Freestyle Fridays back in the day? He’s coming out of retirement to try and hang with one of the illest Battle MCs around. Thursday, Jin will be battling two-time WRC and Scribble Jam champion (the youngest ever at 18), Illmaculate, who’s coming off a victory to former partner and two-time WRC champion, TheSaurus (see part 1 of the video after the jump)

$20 at the door. I guarantee it’s money well spent.
