In the early 2000's, punk rock music video director Darren Doane went deep inside the L.A. hip-hop world to document the raw and aggressive battles between rappers, DJ's and break dancers. These battles defined their scene. This classic, sought after, hip-hop Doc was the first "battle rap" DVD ever released to the general market. The film went out of print and lay dormant for years. Now, for the first time in over a decade, THE BATTLE FOR L.A. is available exclusively through VIMEO On Demand. This is a must see for hip-hop fans old and new. Truly one of the most exciting inside looks at L.A hip-hop.
