about to preorder, good shit
I'd also take Millz vs Mook over Lux vs Mook. GT appears twice and URL never. I'd nix Dumb/Tantrum and go with Math/Rex.
Good shit as always.
edit: cosign Fight Klub. 40 Cal vs Cardi? I don't know.
oh yeah -- Rabbit vs Papa Doc yo
Not to nitpick but how is Craig G vs Supernatural not one of the battles of the 90s? Way more noteable and way more history than especially Eyedea vs Peace seeing as they had 3 battles.
I don't know the history behind Eyedea vs. Peace but otherwise, yes. I was almost going to say Craig G vs. Supernat over Hiero vs. Hobo Junction which wasn't too crazy of a battle other than it being between two crews with some real beef where I hear they almost started scrapping in the studio or something.
I definitely had thought of putting Ok/Ars up there, particularly because it was such a huge crossover battle (and just a really dope battle imo), and it has all that historic significance...i never really thought of Math/Rex as a classic (or at least classic when compared with a lot of others on the list)
I'd thought of FK battles. Jones/Jin is understandable, the only reason I left it off was cuz it was such a one-sided battle. Remy vs. Luck is a good one though.
Millz/Mook was the first Smack battle, and you're right it does have a lot of significance, and i'm definitely gonna try and find a way to put te wrc 06 finals on there.
Shit looks boss my dude. Keep up the great work.
Don't outshine my meager writing too much, eh Mook?
Swann and Rhymefest maybe?
To be fair though there are 3 Smack Battles on there. Smack is essentially URL just in its earlier days.
you could put up dizaster vs nocando
or maybe the leagacy of it the battle was alright
seeing as they battled eight times or some crazy number
Illmac vs Mac Lethal and Serius Jones vs Jin are two that I feel like could go up there.
If Greg & Regular Joe don't mind, I'm down to share the writing credits and split these up, even if you just write a handful. Lord Finesse & Percee P is spoken for though.
you can proofread my joints & take out all the hay-makers if it makes you feel better
i think you should add one more battle to the 2000's
i think you should take Murda Mook vs Serius Jones out & replace it with Passwurdz vs HOllow Da Don (you already have a mook battle & mook vs lux is a better battle)
pass vs hollow is a way better battle possibly the best GT battle next to dumb vs tantrum
WHAT ABOUT ONE MORE BATTLE FROM 90'S --->
AKROBATIK vs SAGE FRANCIS @ Superbowl MC Battle 99' classic IMO
Illmac vs swann was a huge turnpoint
Biotch! You wish you had a phone like mine...
Yes it does bro.

i've been yerning for this atop my coffee table
True, true, so hard to narrow this game down to 14 battles.
And I know some 80s battles are necessary coz of the history and the progression, but I wont have ever heard of them
Yea, this would be great, as it would definitely speed up the process as well.
Yea, I debated back and forth on putting Craig G vs. Supernat, and I still think their rivalry is incredibly significant. I felt like Eyedea/Peace was a very good almost "closing" battle to the 90s. Particularly cuz they battled twice that day, and Eyedea had said listening to Peace is what got him into battling, so sort of a teacher/student type thing...in all honesty maybe the fact that Eyedea is deceased also played some part into the decision, though it wasn't like a conscious thought to put it in because of that.
I was thinking about adding more battles from the 2000s just in general. Like 2-4 more, but the layout may not allow it.
