Show Notes

Rap battles in 2022 are a completely different thing than I remember. I had a very enlightening conversation with Pacman, who has been participating in battles here in Winnipeg and across Canada.

Check out our chat about battling as comedy/performance art rather than a strictly musical pursuit, using rap as a springboard to stand-up comedy and writing, whether there’s a “line” that shouldn’t be crossed when insulting an opponent, and much more!
