Beat Battle Winning Beat

Posted By on Tue, Jun 29, 2010 at 10:22 AM

You know the beat battle we talked about a few weeks ago? In a competition against a couple dozen other beat-makers, Dan "Ocean" Cuccia, 29, took the crown. Cuccia is one half of local hip-hop crew Cheap Meat Suits — a relatively inactive Bad Penmanship group, but one whose album I was totally floored by (see my review of Dark City here). 

By winning the Spokane Beat Battle, Ocean will move on to compete in a Northwest beat battle later this summer in Portland — where a hefty cash prize is on the line.
