    !



    bro, no prob


    Reign / Izzie is a really humble, down to earth person in real life. He was excited about this when I told him and his ppl's. You my homie, and this book is such a great idea and it seems like such a tough undertaking that I'm glad as a battle rap fan / Philly native that you'd consider and put Reign in the book with all of these greats.



    Looking forward to it!

    Yea, I believe so too. Of the "new" guys (other than Hollow, Diz, and some of the others that are already in) the guys I've given serious consideration to putting in are Ars, Verb, and Real Deal.

    None taken at all. Honestly I think okwerdz without a doubt deserves it. He really had such a HUGE impact on Cali battling, and he was winning in NY in the early 2000s. A lot of those Cali guys started going to Scribble cuz Ok went.

    Bishop was huge in Canada. He was the biggest known name in Canadian battling forever.

    Immortal Tech and Borat though, there are definitely arguments against.

    Its like there's about 35 names that are basically inarguable, its just getting those last 15 to be guys that most would agree on.

    At this point Ars should def be in. (probably for Immortal Tech). I don't see a huge argument for Loe (though I think he's dope) but the other guys you have listed there's def a case for, but they kind of fall into that "last 15" I had mentioned.

    Yea, I love DFD. One of my favorites. He just didn't battle all that long or beat any real huge name guys (aside from PH). He's been on and off from the beginning.

    You can hear from the way he battles he's heavily influenced by L.

    Rex was definitely inspired by Big L, esp with the fast flow shit.



    Out of the main Harlem rappers, however, I think Clips' Big L inspiration shows the most.

    The best Philly battlers all got there own original style, reason why they feared & respected so much. They like Harlem just have endless amounts of competition just to be the best in their area.
