Even though Tsu Surf vs Tay Roc was not slated as the main event, the hype around it was built up like one. A night of main events is not just a title y’all, so if you wonder why URL is considered the World’s most respected, understand that every battle has potential classic written all over it. I don’t how the elites pull off these types of performances every time they hit the stage. Projecting and performing new material at this level has to be taxing on a battlers psyche but that is probably why they space out their battles in a timely fashion throughout the year. The consistency of producing fire content only increases the purses of everyone involved in the culture because there is nothing, and i mean nothing, that can match the energy produced live and on camera. Continue to produce and fans continue to support the sport.
“He gave me the shot so ima take it… CLOSE RANGE”
Tay Roc’s journey up to this point can be described as consistent after his near death vs Charlie Clips. Not to many battlers can receive an ass whooping like that and then come back to tear through the ranks of the “middle tier” before his rematch with Charlie Clips. Afterwards, he was sent to take out the PG killer, DNA in an intense battle that Smack personally enjoyed if you know the history behind it (Surf takes you through it within the battle). Consistency throughout his career, he is now Smack’s number one gunner, and is poised to take his resume to new heights. Surf, realizing that Roc is well on his way, has provided comfort to other elite battlers to step in the ring with him. Having the scenario he has been presented with, Tay Roc understands that he must have a great showing to solidify himself with the elites. There was rumors surfacing after the battle, that he would be battling either Conceited or Calicoe at Summer Madness 5. Will the next elite be able to stand in front Roc like Surf did?
You be the Judge
Welcome to the club of killas, Roc
Tsu Surf has solidified his status as one of the top dogs in battle rap period after his last three, out of four, performances. Being pitted against battlers who could possibly end your career with a flawless performance, has tested Surf and groomed him into a battler that receives high praise from fans, and stars, all around the world. His last two battles on URL proves that as he had a “Fumble” against Charlie Clips, and a classic with Hitman Holla that eclipsed 2 million views in 8 months. This is probably the first time we have seen Surf really excited at the thought of battling someone with a resume that does not equate to his. Even though resume does not match, Surf understands that he cannot play with someone who has been gunning for him since the early days of the URL. Will this battle be light for Surf?
Tsu Surf of Newark, NJ, and Tay Roc of Baltimore, MD, has put on for their hometown and provided battle fans with three great rounds of material that we encourage everyone to watch. Check out the full battle below.
