Street credibility, undeniable freestyle skills and lyrical ingenuity make verbal combat his the only option. “I treat the track like wild game – I size him up then destroy him with total disregard.” “You can’t just say you are better than the next rapper. You have to prove it”, says B. RICE with his signature chuckle.
