  1. you know it’s gonna be good when it’s described as a “coming of age drama” and has a makeshift 8 Mile bathroom scene in the trailer!

  2. Wow this looks absolutely terrible… We’re all probably going to have to deny makings beats once this gets out.

    Fuck… Good thing I’ve been buying microphones and listening to classical. I’ll have a cover for why I have all the equipment in my basement.

    I can just imagine it now, all of the retards laymen asking stupid questions once they find out I “make beats”.

    Someone post up a huge facepalm please.

  3. I kept waiting for it to be a joke trailer… There was no puncline. This is real?


  4. Wow, thanks for the comments, I guess. I’m one of the film’s producers.

    Since the posts here there’s been an update to the “Battle” site that includes a FREE Mixtape.

    It’s free to download at and the tracklist is at the blog

    The Mixtape is Hosted by Hip-Hop Host extraordinaire: DRES THA BEATNIK
    and Mixed by Reign of Terror and Psyche Origami’s own DJ DAINJA.

    Both of these talented heads appear in Battle. A cameo by the great Talib Shabazz is featured as well.

    Lots of Hip-Hop, an eclectic collection, some of the producers who appear in the movie are represented here like: HeadRoc (who plays the lead character Rippa), Trimm (who plays Dirty Dollar$ in the film), Rhythmlord (plays Beat Priest and is doing score for the movie), as well as Green Tea (a two man producing team that play finalists in the Battle scenes) and the actual Dirty Dollar$ (Producer Eddie Singleton’s little brother). I definitely wanted to give them a little extra shout but most of the rest are talented Atlanta underground artists as well. This is not the official soundtrack but don’t be surprised if some of this music winds up in the movie.

    Definitely download it and enjoy but be sure to pass along the FREE music link to all your friends who like Hip-Hop.

    As for the progress of the film, we’re deep in post and working hard on music, sound, and fine cutting.

    Thanks to everyone for their interest in the movie,
