Battle rapper 40 B.A.R.R.S. spoke exclusively with HipHopDX about her battle earlier this month with Daylyt at Queen of The Ring. During the battle, Daylyt exposed his genitals to the crowd.
“I wasn’t surprised,” 40 B.A.R.R.S. says. “I was sure that he was going to do a gimmick. That’s what he does. I was trying to give him as limited reaction as I possibly could because I know that’s exactly what he wanted.”
Known for his antics during battles, Daylyt had plans on having sex with a sex toy on stage before the venue ultimately shut down the battle.
“I wouldn’t have reacted,” 40 B.A.R.R.S. says had Daylyt been able to follow-through with his aborted plan. “I would’ve just tried to rebuttal it.”
40 B.A.R.R.S. may have tried to keep her reaction to this act at a minimum during the battle, but she says she isn’t completely opposed to the use of props and gimmicks in battles.
“Depending on how applicable they are to the bars, then they can be really good,” she says. “Like I’m not totally against using props and gimmicks for battles, but when they’re just for no reason, I think it takes away from the actual sport.”
The event was shut down during the third round because of Daylyt’s act, but video of the event is set to drop April 11.
