'' IN THE KITCHEN, ONCE MORE, YOU IN THE CORNER? WHAT FOR? CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON, I'VE WON WARS, CUZ AWWW LAAAHD MY STYLE GOT A LIL BIT OF EVERYTHING HA HAAA LIKE A JUNK DRAWER''
Ima just be real dude, you're peacocking and gatekeeping for no reason here, especially when you could be positively contribute to discussion and explaining why those battles are good entry points instead of just telling everyone how much better your list would be and the battles/styles that you think are better.the ''list'' is 98% you blowing smack, as for not liking rapbattles? based on everything you've posted i'm gonna guess i'm probably 10 plus years your elder.
which puts your entry point in the written era, and mine all the way back to rap olympics and scribble jam.
not a single botb battle on that list? no saurus, no fresco, no soul, no bender or 24/7? no ness lee? (i can put 10-15 other names here aswell)
your example of a onesided shit kicking pales in comparasin to something like say caustic vs jefferson price or soul khan vs deacon frost or say sonny bamboo vs villun.
100. For someone claiming to be so much older you sure entered the thread in the most petulant way possible, not a good way to get people to take you seriously. Posting battles we've seen, acting like you're teaching us something.Ima just be real dude, you're peacocking and gatekeeping for no reason here, especially when you could be positively contribute to discussion and explaining why those battles are good entry points instead of just telling everyone how much better your list would be and the battles/styles that you think are better.
You come out the gate, assuming you're older than everyone else here and that no one here ever liked rap olympics/scribble jam because you misread that the OP focuses on modern battle rap. Ain't anything wrong with battles that came before, but I didn't want to mislead people into putting one thing in OP and modern rap battles being another way, hence the lack of GrindTime-era stuff there too. Soul Khan vs. Deacon Frost was on URL too, and I absolutely LOVE that performance from Soul Khan but you're tripping if you think the entry point to battle rap is as one-sided of a battle as that; Lux vs. Miles is an exception because it's basically something everyone has to watch and Miles' rounds are short.
There's also UK 2-on-2s, several KOTD battles on there, but that list was made years ago. URL was dominant then and is even more dominant now, it is what it is. I even admitted when I made the list that it was biased towards SMACK because I very much am, but there weren't many suggestions for good entry points then either so I just went with what there was to go with.
FWIW I think Brizz vs. Young X is one of the best entry points there is. The Saurus vs. Fresco is a good one too, so next time I get around to editing OP, I will throw that in.
This is a good idea. They do some of the best breakdowns of battles you can find.
i'm not peacocking or gatekeeping anything, i'm questioning why in a thread about battlerap as a whole has a list that reads like a a&b guide to smack battles? when one could argue that if it wasn't for something like dumbfounded vs tantrum you wouldn't have had the ''modern era'' of rapbattles period.
yeah, makes sense. because lux vs miles for instance has aged brilliantly right? j.c being one of the most influential battlerappers ever? i almost pissed myself reading that statement.
this ougtha be good, please do tell.
You're such a haughty asshole I'm not sure why you feel you deserve any discourse at all. Your intro to the thread was a double post of straight shitting on people's opinions, not starting a discussion.
questioning blatant ignorance you mean? these 13 pages read like the ''main stage'' part of otbva, which funny enough was also populated by a bunch of 20 somethings who got off to smack battles.
You have social issues, there is no point in talking to you. You don't know how t start r mantain a cnversation.questioning blatant ignorance you mean? these 13 pages read like ''main stage'' part of otbva, which funny enough was also populated by a bunch of 20 somethings who got off to smack battles.
suburbia youth and gun lines, probably the biggest cliche ever.
''get on some rap shit'' ?
nigel plz, behave yourself son.
would this be the part of the saga where you venture off to ''find your mic'' ? you attempting to ''high road'' it when you led off with ''get on some rap shit'' and ''find my mic'' ? and for your finale you quote a fictional character from the wire?
But he compared us to OTBVA...like really though...it's like that? :(
