This was a tough battle to judge although it was easy and very entertaining to watch the two veteran battle emcees go back and forth. Greywolf kicks off the battle with a laid back flow, and although his delivery comes off lackadaisical... his lyrics and "below the belt" punch lines and similes are certainly aggressive. Greywolf also received quite a few "oooss" and "aaaahs" from the audience as well. After Greywolf, the champion Double R goes right in. What Double R. lacks in flair and crowd pleasing one liners (although coming prepared with a taunting introduction also including a prop wolf mask), he makes up for in spades with an aggressive delivery, accompanied with straight to the point in your ass bars that will make the hardest man tremble and shake in his boots. Double R. hit so hard vocally that I felt the attacks! It's hard to say who the winner is, although I want to lean more to Double R., however it's up to you all... the listeners to make that judgment call. Check it out for yourself by clicking the video!

Hip hop producer and Author Rory Bressler releases a book that chronicles his personal journey of cheating death and turning tragedy into triumph, "A Story of Struggle".
Spiritual Awakening. After seeing the heaven's gates, my spiritual side of me, came from deep inside of me. Me and the Lord, came together and the fight that I've been battling, for 15 years, was finally over because I finally see the light. I knew the Word of God was true , and this is something I will never forget. I seen my self die, and come back to life. To me, it was very scary. I'd never been that scared in my whole life, and I've seen a lot happen, so I hope my story really reaches out to people who have struggled, in any type of way. All these 34 years of my life, dealing with the struggles I've been dealing with, my whole life. I've always asked my self, "Why do I have to deal with all this pain?" That's when I have to pray to the Lord, and ask Him, and He answers in His own way. Goals I have in the next five years; Goals I have, is to tell my story and reach out to 1.5 million people and change lives, see the change in peoples eyes. Become a better man, and be the best father in the world. To show the world, nothing can stop me from living, that only God can judge me. Pray to eat better and gain weight, keep going with my music. "Rory, has been doing music for 13 years, and I've had dreams of helping others, and never gave up, he wants to teach kids to never give up on there dreams, no matter what comes there way in life."
