DX: So the battle takes place. What are you thinking during the battle?
Dizaster: That’s the key question to ask. That’s the key explanation to why my performance wasn’t as good as it was supposed to be. It’s because I was shocked. I was confused. I was startled. I never get thrown off. I can hang with any crowd in the world. Everybody knows. It doesn’t matter if someone boos me. So to get thrown off that hard…I was thinking in two different places. I wasn’t there rapping anymore. I was rapping just so I didn’t choke. I continued rapping, but my brain was somewhere else. I was asking myself questions like, “How is this happening? What did he do? Why is this going down?” I didn’t get it. It was really confusing.
