They call it Night of Main Events for a reason! After months of debate and speculation on whether or not Loso would ever appear on the stage that SMACK built, the Horseman was announced to battle on one of the biggest cards of the summer. The matchup, which was broadcasted as a free battle on YouTube, took place against the hometown hero Scotty in Houston, TX as a Proving Ground battle.
For months, the battle rap community had argued about whether or not Loso’s high profile performance record and undefeated streak carried enough weight to bypass the PG’s. That serves as a danger room for up and coming emcees. Many stated that Loso may not be able to handle the pressure of being on the big stage. Well after Saturday night, the former HGA affiliate silenced all the naysayers.
Loso did not come to play in that building. He set the tone for the rest of the night, putting everybody on notice with quotable after quotable. His opponent held his own for the first. He had a charisma and confidence that made his simple bars land harder than they would have with most but was overwhelmed every round.
Loso got the easy 3-0. So who’s the next plate on SMDDDDDAAACK? Whether it’s Nu Jerzey Twork, Chef Trez, or Nu Nu Nailz hairdresser, it’s guaranteed to be one to watch. Hopefully, we can get a Loso/Th3 Saga team up versus NWX on a Double Impact in the near future.
Only one question remains unanswered. With Th3 Saga, Street Hymns, and now Loso making their URL debuts, when will A. Ward officially touchdown on a URL Stage? And no, NOME 8 doesn’t count!

In the Nigerian Christian hip-hop scene, a number of rap artists have come to identify themselves with a new sound, a different kind of music that is way different from hip-hop, this genre they call Afro Gospel. The ‘Afro Gospel’ sound originated from Afrobeat(s) which is a mix of the African sound and this a lot of time is credited to iconic musician/activist Fela Anikulapo Kuti. After his demise, new age artists have gone ahead in remaking the sound to blend to their style hence we have Afrobeats. Afro Gospel sounds so very good as many Christan artists have started […]

Canon and his new track “Evil” contains the righteous anger and passion of an entire race. Here’s what he had to say in his own words: “I pray that this song shows that racism is evil. What we are seeing today is the fruit of that evil that has been allowed to grow in our society through the many injustices that people of color have faced, both public and private. Even if you were previously unaware of your racial biases and discriminatory tendencies, it is still evil. I hope that this song will demonstrate that what some policemen have been […]

So let’s get straight to it. The current events surrounding the state-sanctioned police murder of George Floyd has sparked recent protests and riots around the nation. The demonstration of outrage within the Black community is not because […]
