Fliptop in the Philippines

 I've always been amazed by the hip-hop rappers here in the Philippines. I've spent countless hours in youtube listening to their rapping.  Fliptop is a rap battle league that puts two people in a battle/match to have them insult each other. Personally, I like Loonie and Anygma's Style.

FlipTop has English and Tagalog battles. They are not actually rapping freestyle, but they research their opponents first and and then pre-write their "balagtasan". What I liked about it is the spontaneity, the cleverness and the applied humor when they compete, it's very entertaining. They can pretty much say what they want, but after each competition, "walang personalan".

Here's a few of the video's from youtube that I like. Enjoy!
