The 2016 U.R.L is on a strict mission to develop new talent.
In order to accomplish this, the URL shifts its focus away from high profile encounters.
The smaller atmospheres in general have always been the key, 2 establishing and cultivating not just new talent but all talent.
A prior event series was resurrected for this URL 2016 mindset and the result is “BORN LEGACY 2”.
A card is a that shows lots of promise and delivers on more than 1 level.
The URL stated that the “BORN LEGACY” is a series to stay.
(even going so far to say it will occur every other month)
“BORN LEGACY 3” is supposedly going down in march.
As in life there are GOOD times
There are BAD times
When the effects of “The Henny” kick in , things tend to get UGLY…………
-Smack White, Beasly , Chico, Norbes and the entire U.R.L organization for pulling off a GOOD event.
-Every battlerapper on the card and in the building.
-The 5 Boroughs of NYC
-Big props to Battlerap Chris, Jon from rap grid and Sincere Cyphers
-Nettie mcfly (thank u sweetie for letting me lean on u)
-CUTTING THE GAS OFF
Before the event , Smack & Beasly grab the mic to state the following
•there were be no “run it backs”
•no “talk that shit”
•no deep moans and quicks yells of Jesus
•this a non ablib event
(A giant smile slowly appeared on my face)
-THIS CAM WILL MAKE CAROLINA LOOK GOOD
(No cam newton but the actual URL camera)
Nunn Nunn having a semi 8 mile moment @ this event.
Props 2 Bonus but Nunn’s 3rd round assault on (flower neck tat) sealed the deal.
-THE RESULTS ARE IN (MAURY VOICE)
They were a positive 3-0 provided by Young X.
Who gave Dot a hard time throughout their 3 rounds.
X seem more focused after the layoff
(He resurrected the Maury/get-em angles here)
•Jerry Wess kick back was strong enough for him to crowd surf over his opposition.
•Tink proclaiming he’s the king of the fat niggas.
He immediately sends shots @ Ave, Steams and Suge.
•Chess doing him while sending warning shots @ Roc,Suge,Chilla and Saga
•Chilla 2nd round >>
•Tez been on his shit lately ,he potentially takes the W here.
•Cyssero was ok here , his dated sound is passable in a small room.
-ROB & BIG BATTLE
Tink attempts to drag Mike P to hell with his slavery voice @ this event.
Mike P fights his way out by turning in2 a street fighter , delivering Hadouken and Shoryukens.
This battle was thought to be the battle of the night.
(till the next 2 entries came along)
-CLASSIC RUM ON THE AVE
Rum Nitty said he had to grab respect in order to make it to the URL.
He gained the respect and much more after just 1 punchline.
Rum grabbed the east coast crowd and pours his soul in2 all of his rounds.
The following was said by Ave and it deserves its own entry.
“Life anit make u 6 feet , but death can”
-BACK TO MY OLD WAYS
Reed Dollaz is back and the Philly legend puts the entire battlerap world on notice @ this event.
Fuck getting in his bag , Reed got in a time machine @ this event.
(The results were overwhelmingly GOOD)
-WHO CUT THE GAS BACK ON?
(Remember that big smile)
I wanna say 3 battles in and it dropped.
@ this point the crowd was pouring gasoline on lines that didn’t deserve praise.
-NEVER ENDING ROUNDS
Certain rounds felt way over 3 mins IMO
I didn’t really know the time limits but Tink spit for like half and hour.
Chess rounds seem to be double as far time length goes.
-YES WE REMEMBER
The sight of Bangz wearing that hoodie/t-shirt with 10 holes (repeatedly saying) “y’all remember what I said?” 5x
After the 5th time it’s safe to say we do.
Before Mike P 1st some 1 yells “Let’s go Gonaij”.
It clearly throw the Long Island rapper off and made his fight back that more inspiring.
The Nitty vs Ave battle had the energy through the roof.
The crowd went through a tug of war of momentum and emotions.
(which didn’t transcend well for the next 3 battles)
-DRAGGING THE PREACHER THROUGH THE MUD
(Saga was a prime target @ this event)
Tink said he was a victim of whitewashing and false teaching.
Chess said Saga begged 4 a battle , then dismissed him to spread the word.
-WHAT DO 2013 & 2016 HAVE IN COMMON?
They both featured URL events titled “BORN LEGACY”.
The URL banner was falling apart @ both of these events.
-REACHING FOR BLANKS
Dot tried reaching but it wasn’t connecting @ this event.
Dot say’s “your 4 will die by my 4″ before blanking out for a quick second.
The silence that followed was a common theme for his rounds.
Tez telling Chilla he passed on the most money ever for a battle. In order to battle him for the same company that sent him on 2 year layoff (after the DNA battle)
Lmao @ Cyssero for attempted a Macarena line in 2016.
A few disgusted people walked out.
-DOUBLE 3RD ROUND STUMBLES
Minor stumbles should be forgiven in battlerap tbh
What makes this UGLY is just how it occurred @ the end of both Reed&Chess rounds.
-EFFECTS OF THE HENNY
(Throughout the event this is all u heard)
” 2 waters to the stage and the henny”
(The effects of Smack’s Henny start to kick in)
•he mixes up the area codes of Long Island
•he says the DMV is PG county , he apologizes and starts it from the top (introducing Ty law the right way)
•he forgot where Chess hailed from, Chess responds “Yo Smack I’m from the X”
•he says the dude who attempted 2 put the banner up is hired
“If he can get it up” , he thinks about this before yelling “PAUSE”…………….
