Most of you probably remember the hot atmosphere of the three 8 Mile battles…replace yourself in the 8 Mile movie context and picture Lickety Split trying to battle B Rabbit, spitting his racial slur against him.
The funny thing is that Strike aka Lickety Split will release his first CD in collaboration with his 8 Mile rival, Eminem and with some other Detroit well known artists like D12, Obie Trice, Royce da 5.9, Miz Korona…

Strike is a member of Detroit group « Mountain Climbaz ». You will learn more about « Mountain Climbaz » on their official website:

Many people might be curious why Eminem chose Strike as his rival in the 8 Mile movie. Take the answer directly from Strike’s mouth:

« I think Eminem picked me to be his rival in the 8 mile movie because at that time before 8 mile, it was a lot of groups in Detroit making noise but a lot wasn't making noise like us you know what I'm saying and how we stayed on top of everything doing shows and you know the competition of shows between us and D12 it was like after so long they wouldn't even put my group on a show you know what I mean. Because it was like when we stepped on stage it was hard for somebody else to come on behind us. » (Strike)

The 8 Mile battles are the more intense part of the movie.
By hiring rap rivals like « Lickety Split, Eminem’s strategy is clear: it is all about Detroit artist’s promotion. The Detroit underground scene is full of talented artists.
Check out Mountain Climbaz, their music is worth it and give « The Freeworld Lp » a chance. You won’t regret it.
