Mac Lethal made his name on the battle rap circuit, first earning acclaim as Scribble Jam champion in 2002. And though the Kansas City whiteboy hasn't been active on the battle circuit in recent years, he showed he's still got game in his recent Grind Time showdown with San Jose's Dirtbag Dan. Do yourself a favor and watch it on YouTube; just skip past the three minutes of insufferable intro.

Mac's been indefinitely on tour since leaving Rhymesayers in 2006 to start his own Black Clover label. Thus, the five-week tour that concludes Saturday at Bernie's isn't in support of a new record. It's just another chance for Mac to go wild, improvise and interact with an audience.
