We have done the Rapzilla.com Beat Battle at Flavor Fest the past 2 years and it is a blast! We have been to Legacy and been a sponsor for the last 3 years and wanted to add another element to the conference and performances. We wanted to keep the beat battle a special and unique part of Flavor Fest so we came up with the idea of getting some emcee's to spit their hottest 16 for a chance at cash and prizes.

Much of our human existence is characterized by an obsession with "now". And while instant gratification and present pleasure seem to constantly stoke our temporal fires, the truth is that none of us can escape asking one vitally important looming question: "What happens to me after I die?" Hip Hop's connection to the afterlife is well-documented and has included the predictable ("I wonder if heaven got ghetto" from Tupac), the thoughtful ("That's what Heaven look like" from Kendrick Lamar or "Live in the Sky" from T.I.) and yes, even the bizarre (…too many to even name here).
Jay Z tried his hand at an answer while promoting the song "Heaven" from his upcoming new album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail'. In a brief video, the Roc Nation mogul gives his own theological take on God's dwelling place. Jay says:
"No matter what religion you are, like, accept other people's idea. Okay, cause have you ever been to heaven? Have you ever seen it? Just from my ideas, heaven is in your daughter's laughter. Hell can be if your child was missing for three minutes; you're in three minutes of hell. It's just not my beliefs that you know, a just God would make you burn for eternity for free will that He gave."
