Cory here, welcoming you all to the next installment of Operation Manatee – our annual rap-stravaganza!! A whole hour of rap, from a couple of guys with a tertiary interest in the genre!! What more could you ask for at 11:00 pm on a Tuesday in Regina?
PS – Big shout outs to Snooty. East Coast life, chilling in Florida, finally gets to meet the big manatee in the sky… RIP homie.
Tomorrow night is the main event! In what has become the hottest Operation Manatee event of the year, Chris and Cory are back to battle it out with epicz rapz songz…
But wait… we have a twist!!
We each work with people much more schooled in the art of hip-hop than we are, so to switch things up this year we have tasked those folks with some “genres” of rap. Now that we have a list, we are each picking a “champion” of that genre to go head to head.
But wait… there’s more!!
We also are annexing an EXTRA HOUR OF SHOW!! Unfortunately The Rock Diner is off this week, but that means we’re going to start a full hour earlier to get in the maximum amount of rapz… so this week, 10 to midnight!!
Tune in and listen… then we’ll make you vote. If you are into Twitter, follow along @OpManatee and give us live play by play on how we’re doing.
Cory and Chris throw down @CJTR – Epic Rap Battle 2013. Who do you think won this battle for street cred and papers?
Consumed by the flame that started with last week’s spark over playing a Kanye West track on a typically rock-based program, Cory and Chris’ gloves are coming off! In days past, we would have simply gone for a good, old-fashioned bar brawl or back-alley knife fight, but we decided to settle things like gentlemen this time: pistols, dawn. But before that, we’re throwing down at CJTR.
We each have an assortment of our favourite rap/hip-hop tracks for your consideration. East coast, west coast, dirty south and great white north, all represent.
Stay up late with us from 11:00 to midnight and be sure to let us know who’s winning the battle! Follow along @OpManatee.
And don’t forget to come check out the pistol fight, tomorrow at dawn.
