Watch TeamBackPack's BAR FIGHT: 2 Rounds, 2 Beats, 48 Bars

This is not your average battle series.

If you're not yet familiar with our friends at TeamBackPack, you need to become familiar. Committed to celebrating the art of hip-hop, TBP brings together the best hip-hop artists from around the world for special events and media, putting the spotlight on talented individuals and introducing them to millions around the world. Think of them as a half-sibling of DJBooth, hip-hop being a father to us both.

The latest release from TBP is a new series titled BAR FIGHT, which pits two emcees up against one another to battle in front of a live audience. 

After two rounds, two beats and 48 bars, a winner is chosen by the people.

For the first episode, Rhode Island native Passionate MC faces off against Las Vegas emcee X.
