Operation Manatee #119: Rap Battlez Fo’ Life!!

We’ve been telling you for weeks… this was coming hard… like, some kind of swinging, metallic orb on a chain… a ball of some kind…

Wait… wrong genre? What?

Oh yeah… we’re here for the helluvit, the smelluvit… It’s time for another showdown as we pick music in a throwdown… but we have a twist to the skills to give you all mad thrills!

Tune in at 10:00 for a special 2-hour Operation Manatee on 91.3 FM in Regina or www.cjtr.ca.

Da Trilogy… AKA, Cory Tries Again…

Tomorrow night is the main event! In what has become the hottest Operation Manatee event of the year, Chris and Cory are back to battle it out with epicz rapz songz…

But wait… we have a twist!!

We each work with people much more schooled in the art of hip-hop than we are, so to switch things up this year we have tasked those folks with some “genres” of rap. Now that we have a list, we are each picking a “champion” of that genre to go head to head.

But wait… there’s more!!

We also are annexing an EXTRA HOUR OF SHOW!! Unfortunately The Rock Diner is off this week, but that means we’re going to start a full hour earlier to get in the maximum amount of rapz… so this week, 10 to midnight!!

Tune in and listen… then we’ll make you vote. If you are into Twitter, follow along @OpManatee and give us live play by play on how we’re doing.

PS – If you want to see the previous two results, here you go:

Operation Manatee #15: Epic Rap Battle… To The Death

Cory and Chris throw down @CJTR – Epic Rap Battle 2013. Who do you think won this battle for street cred and papers?

Consumed by the flame that started with last week’s spark over playing a Kanye West track on a typically rock-based program, Cory and Chris’ gloves are coming off! In days past, we would have simply gone for a good, old-fashioned bar brawl or back-alley knife fight, but we decided to settle things like gentlemen this time: pistols, dawn. But before that, we’re throwing down at CJTR.

We each have an assortment of our favourite rap/hip-hop tracks for your consideration. East coast, west coast, dirty south and great white north, all represent.

Stay up late with us from 11:00 to midnight and be sure to let us know who’s winning the battle! Follow along @OpManatee.

And don’t forget to come check out the pistol fight, tomorrow at dawn.

Operation Manatee #13: The One Where Chris Keeps His Pants On

With Cory away, Chris goes insane with power, playing non rock things like KNOWER and PDF Format. It’s actually pretty cool.

Join Chris tonight as he talks and types about himself in third-person, making for a generally really annoying experience.

Naw, just kidding. I’m going to be flying solo tonight as Cory is out of the studio, possibly doing/selling/making drugs.*

With Cory out of the way, be prepared for the most horrifying episode of OpMan, yet. Maybe dubstep, maybe hip hop, maybe heavy-rock-meets-free-jazz, maybe even pop/rock. Maybe. Only one way to find out. Stay up late with me and tune in from 11:00 to midnight. As always, follow @OpManatee for updates.

*Please note that neither Chris nor CJTR or Radius Communications or any of its programmers, affiliates or listeners advocate the use of illicit substances. Cory does though. He’s a fiend for that stuff.
