At the end of 2014, I had the chance to meet up with one of the most unique battle rappers on the scene right now, JakkBoy Maine. It’s always interesting when we interact. His level of respect for the culture and his thought process gives me a new level of hope that we may be looking at the next star of battle rap. He also has a mixtape that’s seen heavy rotation on my phone as well. Check out this video that highlights his rookie year in the battle world.
