Re: “It's a Grind

Ms. Swan,

This article was delivered in an extremely unprofessional and borderline slanderous manner. You're turning something that these artists clearly have a passion for into nothing less than buffoonery.

I have no doubt in my mind that you probably have a personal grudge against one of these guys because it's pouring directly out of your writing, down to the photo you selected for them ("Wish One" is a dead give away, please don't even try to say that was accidental). The way that you're portraying rap battles is ridiculous, (MC's jousting? Are you serious?) which leads me to believe that you wrote this article just for a good chuckle.

Try reading this article from an outsider's perspective, someone who doesn't know a thing about Grindtime or any rap battles for that matter. Then you will realize how childishly disturbing the whole feel of this article really is.

"It's braggadocio for nerds." - Really? This is allowed to be posted on an official online newspaper? In that case. . .
As a fan of the California underground rap scene of today, this article genuinely disgusted me. I will no longer be visiting eastbayexpress and I will recommend anybody I come in contact with to do the same. I suggest anyone who is reading this to follow through. This is ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE.
