Dana Coppafeel has been plotting on getting Grind Time Now to Milwaukee for months now and his hard work has paid off. On June 26th, at Flow Clothing, the battle is scheduled to go on from 2pm-7pm. It is an all ages event and there is a $10 door fee.
For those not familiar with what Grind Time Now is, it’s a Hip-Hop battle league that prefers their participants rap sans beat during the battles and pre-written rhymes are allowed and accepted. It isn’t a freestyle battle league however freestyling does occur. Examples of the battles can be seen HERE. The battles are typically quite humorous, however they are generally quite explicit.
Milwaukee resident and Umbrella Music Group artist Yo-Dot will be battling at the event. Yo-Dot is the winner of the Mic Club Tournament, a Milwaukee event held a couple of years ago now.
The headline battle of the afternoon is Rockford, IL and Covert Empire emcee Fresco versus Samiam. Samiam was a MTV $1 Million Battle finalist and is in the 106 and Park hall of fame.
For those who aren’t members of Grind Time, but would still like a chance to battle, there is a limited number of spots available and those inquiries should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
