1985's Epic Battle of Diss

I love the fact that there is an entry about the multiple participant rap war of 1985 known as the Roxanne Wars, starting with Roxanne, Roxanne and then Roxanne's Revenge before just rolling out of control after that.

A diss battle that blew up but doesn't seem to have resulted in any real violence or anything... just a lot of records in a short period of time.

You would think that with Youtube and all the various ways of distributing work, we might be able to see another epic battle like this take place over a summer.

I would love that. We need a good old artistic diss battle without bloodshed.
