It was written that hip-hop in KZ is developing, but how it is developing; what are the reasons of the development; who are people that are developing it?
One of the reasons of fast prosperity is NITs! www.kzrap.kz site is the main force that pushes the moving hip-hop train with all the rappers.
It is world where rappers like a players in counter-strike have to kill each other in battles but with the art of their rhymes. Yes, it is hard to judge, but the judges are professional rappers, so that their decision cannot be argued.
About battles: two rappers are met in a battle by the results of sortition. The theme that they get has to be followed in their tracks (for example you must give a respect to your opponent in a such way that he will feel angry on you). They have to write a track on any minus that they choose, and the winner goes to the next round. Very interesting to listen to the battle between them, because it is not just a running down of an opponent, but beautiful art of rapping, although there were some cases when after battle rappers fought, but is makes battles even interesting.
There are 7 or 9 battles for one rapper, so you can imagine that not only one rapper participates.
Thousands of tracks can be downloaded, hundreds of rappers show their skills, and even more viewers get the pleasure.
