Classic Battle: Kool Moe Dee vs Busy Bee Starski Dec 1981 Harlem World

In all of the old school hiphop rap battles, there aren't many more that got more notorious than the classic Busy Bee and Kool Moe Dee battles of the late 70s and early 80s.

By 1981 Busy Bee was out doing his solo stuff rather successfully., Kool Moe Dee was a member of the Treacherous Three which was having some early success of their own. 

The two came together in December of 1981 at the Harlem World nightclub. They had a quick, and in my mind rather one sided battle.    Busy Bee spent his time mostly hyping the crowd and kicking his standard rhymes that were in most of his recordings.

Kool Moe Dee stepped to the mic and threw it DOWN.

He went after Busy Bee right from the jump and cut straight to the done.  In the 5 minute set Dee had, he thoroughly annihilated poor Bee.
