During the technical hitch before the start of the battle, both artists joked, smiled and behaved with each other very friendly. "In ***** politics, we have a real international debate. The largest show in the history of hip-hop, "- shouted the presenter and gave the floor to rappers.

The first to start Dizaster, who devoted a round of stereotypes about Russia, puncham about the arms race and the space program. "At first I was surprised that you were all here, but then I realized the obvious: you are all Communists, therefore, most likely, live in the same house", - Dizaster read about a large number of Russians among the audience.

"I was warned that if I try to go against the Russians, I will lose. Are you joking? Look at me? I like Hillary Clinton, "continued the rapper. "We can use the rap-battles to conduct diplomatic negotiations with these hooligans," he joked, finishing the round with a phrase about 7000 nuclear warheads in Russia ("What are you going to do with them?") And a space conquest program in which, according to him In words, Russia is hopelessly behind.

"Tell me, the American, what is the strength?" - began the first round of Oxxxymiron, who after the panchee about his success turned to the topic of Arab origin Dizaster. "How does it feel to keep a flag covered in the blood of your people," Oxxxymiron read, hinting at US military campaigns in the Middle East.

"You want to see my country on fire, all that awaits you is organized crime", Oxxxymiron read with an exaggerated Russian accent, adding that he did not like neither the Russian government nor the US attempts to "normalize the world."

In response, Dizaster again devoted punchy to stereotypes about Russia and joked that Oximiron did not come here because it was "not the best position to be in" (The words "to be put in").

"The shit that you say on the battles, we're talking in real life," said Oksimiron, who dedicated the second round to a story about Arab culture, ending with the panchem "if you do not respect your culture, why should I do it." In this round the Russian rapper told about the poet Samuel Marshak and remembered Stalin and Lenin.

Part of the third round Dizaster read in Russian, and he consisted entirely of insults. As a result, the crowd, consisting mainly of Russian speakers, began to whistle several times. Dizaster also compared Oxxxymiron to the Linkin Park lead by Chester Bennington, after which he apologized, because joking about the subject was "too early."

In the final round, Oxxxymiron pointed out to Dizaster that he does not deal with music, and among his dozen tracks there are only three songs, the rest are records of battles. After that, Oskymon promised that he would come to the Dizaster show "like a shooter from Las Vegas", which caused discontent among the crowd.

The last verse Oxxxymiron devoted "preaching", as he himself called it. "I stand here to say something more important ... This does not look like the beginning of a great friendship, but the words have the potential to heal these slowly dying Arab-Israeli, Russian-American relations," Oxxxymiron read. "I saw this in Russia and in Ukraine, as two fraternal nations clashed under the tune of the people upstairs," he continued.

"I think the battle-rap can be something more than just rhymes and pancakes," Oxxxymiron concluded.
