Quite honestly, I’m surprised it took this long for video to come out.

Yesterday we told you about DeSean Jackson losing $10,000 on a rap battle between his sidekick, Jaccpot artist Retro, and Meek Mill’s entrant, 16-year-old Lil Snupe. [Mill would later give the money to a local high school.] And now, thanks to HipHopSince1987.com, we have video of the event, which was judged by T.I., Michael Vick, T.I.’s cousin Rashard and Trae Tha Truth.

If this doesn’t sound like a scene from a loosely constructed cable series about the off-the-field lives of fictional athletes and rappers, or the sequel to 8 Mile, I don’t know what does: Injured wide receiver pits his sidekick against local rap sensation’s protégé in “rap battle” that is judged by fallen ex-con rapper and ex-con quarterback, both of whom vote against the wide receiver’s entrant, perhaps creating a rift between quarterback and wide receiver that extends onto the field… if they ever play together again.

Sometimes, folks, truth is better than fiction. 

I watched all 30 minutes of the video, so you don't have to:

2:20DeSean Jackson tries to raise the stakes even more by offering up Retro to challenge Meek Mill directly. 

3:45T.I., wisely, squashes that potential bloodbath, saying to DeSean, “Goddamn, we know you got money, nigga!”

5:49— Battle commences with Lil Snupe off to a strong start. He takes aim at Retro’s chain, something that would be a recurring theme for the young freestyler.

11:06Round 3 begins with Lil Snupe turning in the line of the night: “Vick you cold, but you really need to get rid of this nigger (DeSean). [Inaudible] poop, just how we do, that’s why ya’ll can’t win, that’s really coming from Snoop.”

21:50— T.I. states his impartiality, declaring that he has loyalty to the game foremost, and that whoever wins, we good. [T.I. really emerges as the wise later of the group here. Encouraging to see.]

23:14— Judge Trae casts his vote for Lil Snupe.

23:35Judge Vick casts his vote for Lil Snupe, DeSean Jackson remains silent.

24:10— Rashard casts his vote for Lil Snupe, effectively making him the winner.

24:50— T.I. also casts his vote for Lil Snupe, gives Retro words of encouragement.

26:15DeSean Jackson, upset, leaves, gets chided by the crowd. T.I. turns, inquisitively, towards the door, “Is there a problem?!”

27:45— Michael Vick says he goodbyes to the group, congratulates Lil Snupe on the win.

28:35— Meek Mill and Lil Snupe pose with winnings.

    1. Rap Battles are a way of hiphop life and have been around long before 8 mile and will be around until the end of hiphop

  1. @ Loke hit the nail on the head.
    These stories…whether it’s Bynum, D-Jax, Sheena Parveen or Joe Hack Conklin trying to sell another trash CD…ALL SUCK. No one cares about this crap.
    CB is just trying to desperately stay afloat until a) Hockey comes back (never) or b) Spring Training, when we will be captivated by tales of Ben Revere’s food preferences.

  2. No wonder Desean Jackson let his contract situation bother him last season. I guess you do really need multiple millions of dollars if you just drop $10,000 for shits and giggles in a night. Must be a nice lifestyle…

  3. By the by don’t u honkeys know that if u don’t like a site then don’t be coming to a site n clikn on links n then commenting!? That’s 3 refreshes for the white devul runin the site so more bank to his game ya hurd?

  4. #JACCPOT reacts to rap battle losses like football games with any measurable amount of pressure/meaning; by disappearing.
    He is a glorified kick/punt returner.

  5. If there was an article like this on Vibe.com about the Flyers all playing golf for money for no reason would that be construed as racist?

  6. Good think DeSean held out and moped through a year to get a new contract so he would have enough money for important stuff like this.

  7. My boss left the office bathroom. I walked in 3 minutes later. It smelled like rotting pumpkins.
    Merry. Fucking. Christmas.

  8. Fair weather blogger: Bad baseball season, bad basketball season, atrocious football season, and no hockey season equals a site lacking in original, thoughtful content. It equals a site that relies souly on the news and people stalking athletes at the mall, as opposed to, ya know…Maybe actually writing things your own brain concocted. It equals a site that goes dry of even this kind of drivel for three days at a time once Friday rolls around.
    Can’t talk about hockey? Other sites manage to without becoming redundant. And plus, there’s basically a deadline for the season now. How can you not talk about that?

  9. Hey Jonno this site is not for news or Op-ed pieces, it’s for people to gawk at athletes and make stupid comments about them. Go to ESPN, Mr. Pulitzer.

  10. So much for eagles organization targeting high character people only .. Maybe they should think about drafting and signing Uncle Tom black people , like mcnabb

  11. Man I’m white, I didn’t understand a single word spoken. When can’t the just settle their differences the old fashion way, a good old black on black shoot out.

  12. Tired of thug-ass ballplayers. Stringy-haired linemen with a zillion tats, this kind of rap bullshit. Not attractive. Don’t want them playing on my team.
    Where’s Lombardi when you need him?

  13. Just go to 22:18, nigga splainin rules runs off about a hundred words not a single one remotely decipherable except ‘nigga’. Priceless.

  14. Dude, Kyle, it’s your site, forget freedom of speech. You need to delete this racist stuff. It’s on every post.

  15. Anybody out there see the ESPN 30 for 30 documentry “Broke”? Looks like Desean hasn’t seen it maybe I should send him a copy for Christmas. One thing about that documentry i it shows how footbll players go broke after their playing days are over faster then any other athlete. That’s mostly because NFL contracts are not guarnteed and most big contracts are heavy in the later years. Only thing guarnteed is the signing bonus. So if Desean signs a 150 million dollar contract that doesn’t mean he’s getting 150 million. Chances are he’ll be cut by the time that contract starts showing big money in the later years. So it’s not smart man to be dropping 10″stacks” on a rap battle. Even if you would have won I would tell you it’s not smart. Remember Meek Mill just has to cut an album to go out and make real money where you have to put your body on the line and take an ass kicking to get any kind of reaql money. At least they were betting on that instead of dog fights or somehing else illeagal. I’ll take this bet with anybody. Desean Jackson will file for bankruptcy five years after retiring. If he’s blowing money like this then he’s in for a rude awakening beside the fact that his accountant is probably his boy Rum Rum from his hood and his finacial advisor is most likelt his cousin’s wife’s brothers uncle who went to Devry. This kid is in for such a wakeup call in life. Live it up now Desean because you’ll be begging the NFL network or ESPN for a job after your playing days. But seriously Desean watch ESPN 30 for 30 “Broke”. Or better yet ask your boy Mike Vick about how stuoid spending and taking care of the “boys” from back home works out in the end. I’m sure he could tell you some horror stories. Anyway Have a Merry Christmas Desean. You friend
    Bill

  18. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

  19. Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many of us have developed some nice practices and we are looking to exchange strategies with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.
