[VIDEO] Poor Vida Sunday Sessions — Freestyle Battle

9 Jul

So this is what we do down in Dallas, Tejas. It really is a shame that there seems to be such little quality footage of our local hip-hop scene, so I had to pounce on it when I heard my roommate @Gonz2thaL shot some Dallas footage. This video comes from the freestyle battle that capped of the most recent edition of Poor Vida‘s Sunday Sessions at The Green Elephant.

For those not in the know, the Poor Vida crew hosts a pair of monthly hip-hop events, on the first Sunday as well as the third Saturday of the month. The main goal for these shows is to give local performers an outlet for their art, so if you think you may be the next big thing out of Dallas a la Astronautalis or Damaged Good$ this may be your shot. More importantly, you very well may end up in this space, featured by yours truly.

And now to the battle! Six emcees did combat on Sunday night for a pair of tickets to tomorrow’s Summer Jam, featuring Bun B, Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Trae, Big Tuck, and more. Do you think that YOU should have been the one rockin’ a free entry to the Summer Jam tomorrow? Well here’s your chance. Hit up Poor Vida for your very own opportunity to get up. Enjoy the battle. Big ups to judges Rob Viktum, Fishr-Pryce, Jackie (who has the excellent Myspace vanity URL “ilovehiphop”) and some guy who I do not know (sorry, dude).

Do you think the right guy won? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Round 1

Bobby Fischer v. Cainam

      Oh, Indeed. When people go after each other’s clothing choices and body image it’s always a good time, lol.

    I think we should rematch hence my mic was low and my beat cut off. And, we should put some money on it. Paul wall tickets are not good motivational tools for freestyling

    • N. July 10, 2009 at 9:40 am #

      I agree. Let’s set it up!

  8. cainam July 10, 2009 at 9:13 am #

    I liked when Bobby was serving astro and flotation at once

    very dope

  9. Bobby Fish July 10, 2009 at 12:20 pm #

    I am down haha…rematch! Although you know you and I were both really trying to win those Paul Wall tickets haha…(insert a What It Do Baby, with clenched teeth) and yeah they cut you off early homie, plus none of us were really trying…if they would said the battle was for a million dollars or 20 virgins we woulda done some serious battle hahaha…on a side not Cainam, you and I are both performing next week at Muddy Waters…lets rock that shit…too bad you and I don’t have a song together yet or we could perform that one too!

    • N. July 10, 2009 at 12:26 pm #

  10. Bobby Fish July 10, 2009 at 1:03 pm #

    Astro said “I did it with two fingers, did it like The Cranberries…had to let it LIIIIINNNGGEEERRR!” haha omfg….

    • N. July 10, 2009 at 2:27 pm #

    Word Bobby!! I been looking for you so i can invite you to the studio and do an interview with nativenucleus. Im working on three different projects right now, you must get on one. Man i got tons of dope beats unused that we can jump on. I didnt knw you were on the muddy waters bill, thats dope..we will definately kick it then.

    And in all fairness i think i lost the battle, cause i was doing dumb shit like rhyming neck with neck lol

    I so didnt want to rhyme that night
