FlipTop became popular in the Philippines since this first quarter of this year 2011. I saw my officemates watching this rap battle at the loud room in our office. To my curiousity i came in to see what they were looking at, a sort of rappers competing each other through raps.
I search youtube at nakita ko they were featured sa Rated K hosted by Korina Sanchez. This involves batuhan ng linya sa kalaban, no money is involved in this competition, its plainly pagandahan ng linya na ibabato mo sa kalaban. The advantage is, rap industry will be popularized at pati yung mga bata di mo akalain may talento pa pala sa pag rap.
The only disavantage to this game is they curse through raps and insult its opponent which should not be recognized over the popular youtube and internet networks as there were minors who might influenced with these activities, nevertheless, its better than drug addiction. As im writing this post, im still watching some videos on Youtube.com and am really having fun listening rap battles. Nice one!
