    Of course man.

    Just make sure it is only 2-4 bars (as the layout obviously wouldn't allow anything longer).

    I picked that one you used against HFK "This pussy smells like daffodils...you don't have the will...you tell jokes while I display raw rapping skill" for yours, which I thought was dope. But I know you probably have better ones. Even if you have ones from your freestyle battle days, that's more than cool.

    Also, no racism, homophobia, or n-word (I know the last one wouldn't apply to you, lol). Cursing is fine, and your schocking punchlines would be fine too. Its just that the first three would not fly with clients/employers.

    Also to GetPaid, I agree with you about the racist lines used in the beginning of the bio. I was going to ask RegularJoe if he could get that fixed to something else. Although that one isn't as overtly racist as many other lines could have been, it could still be very offputing to readers.

    Yeah man I live in Toronto too (actually, I live about 3 blocks from the Church and Wellesley seed exchange you were promoting at World Domination) so I could take care of that shit myself. At the moment I'm not sure if it'll be all that helpful for this project, the way these are styled is more like an outsider objective approach. But I appreciate the thought and like Greg said, any information you can hook me up with or feedback you wanna provide me with when it comes time to write those bios is appreciated. Hit me up at the website.

    Diz would be a top 50 all time guy for me, but towards the end of the list. He hasn't been active enough from a historical standpoint to be considered much more significant.

    And, if we really want to get into it, I don't think he dismantled A-Class either. But I mean, I writing a biography for the guy in a book about the best battle rappers of all time. Obviously all of these are going to be worded very positively and the negative highlights from most guys careers (like the Locksmith choke) are going to be omitted. That's the nature of the best, to try and be fair while still giving an admittedly positive slant.

    I can see that argument to a certain extent ... the need to keep the book a little PC is definitely there.

    Same time, this is battle rap we're talking about. It's racist. It's offensive. Diz in particular is a guy who has always employed that in his performances. To try and sugarcoat it and act as if that isn't a major part of his character is something I didn't want to do.

    Plus it's a nice little anecdote to open up the bio - more than anything else I just thought it worked well.

    Yea this is what I was thinking as well. I assumed that's why you wrote it the way you did, and that's what I was wanting. That being said, I don't know if Diz "dismantled" A-Class, but he certainly beat him pretty fuckin bad, lol.

    I have a few books listing the greatest football and baseball players of all time, and VERY few negative aspects of their career were included, its not meaning these guys are like Gods of battle rapping or something, its just that the way these are written puts a very "legendary" stamp on them. And I think thats great.

    If Diz is in the book, Solaris should also be in the book.

    It's a stupid argument to wanna talk about the racial line. That's like sayin "You can write a book about the murder and torture of pre-civil war southern blacks, but you can't use the 'N' word."

    Every single battle involving Dizaster has been racially charged, whether he was the shooter or the target. That's what helps make his battles even more over-powering, their racial turbulance. To remove it in order to keep from hurting a few overly-sensative feelings (the kind of feelings who probably won't read this book) is uncalled for when what you're removing is one of the main reasons this guy shines.

    I am laughing out loud at some of the comments in this thread.

    When you see the footage from Dizaster vs. Nocando's battle at Grizzlemania 2, you will have no doubt in your mind that Diz is top tier.

    Best battle of the night. It was frighteningly good.

    were still waiting.

    EDIT:

    also, this isnt in order.. the dude never said he was number 1, so if you named 49 battlers better than him he would still make the list. so 50 it is, choose 50 that are better than him
