Raff Alpha, a 22 year old from Baltimore, has something that I haven't seen or heard in a very long time: lyrical talent. I am talking about raw hip hop storytelling. With his plays on words, delivery speed, and subject matter, Raff Alpha’s rhymes bring me back to the early 90’s hip hop scene. Personally, I think the way he brings such vivid detail into his rhyme shows that Raff Alpha could hang with the best of Talib or Mos Def. His flow is incredibly versatile, allowing him to rap over an impressive array of beats including everything from gritty Wu Tang Clan samples to old R&B mixes. Raff Alpha is definitely an artist that you want to follow if you’re a fan of classic hip hop. Below is the link so you can download the mixtape and I suggest you do!

The answer is, several rappers already have (though none of them were name-dropped by Kendrick in his verse).
Good morning Daily Beat family! Now that the pleasantries are out-of-the-way, let’s talk about yesterday. In a rebuttal to Kendrick Lamar’s verse on ‘Control’ by Big Sean, legendary DJ Funkmaster Flex just released Joell Ortiz's response to Kendrick Lamar. The lyrical fire storm is a 3 min rapid fire rebuttal from the Brooklyn MC, who goes in on Kendrick's claim. First he states that he isn’t the King of New York, then he continues by saying that because Kendrick is now a main stream “rich rapper” he has gone soft and lost the true edginess that made hip hop so famous. Ortiz goes on to say [.....]
