    Lux is in there. I also like the idea of using a "He gon' need" scheme, as that is obviously a Hollow staple.

    You're doing some great work with this.

    Real talk.

    There will never be a consensus on who the greatest battlers are, even I am not 100% happy with this list, but you're doing a great fucking job with it.

    Kudos.

    because the bars leading up to it would need to be explained to the "casual" fan I think.

    naw not really

    i shoulda done em like cassidy and tell him put wild cake up
    cause how you gon battle me with a style that i made up?
    remember against deacon frost, he said ya need jason, saw 6 if they was all mixed
    even waved his arms with the balled fists
    nigga thats the DONS shit

    you dont really need to understand the big t/deacon frost battle to get the line. i havent even watched that battle. people would understand "oh, i bet the bars leading up to that are what the don's shit is"

    Maybe. Though I'm not sure. Even if that were the case, they still really wouldn't understand "cassidy and tell him put wild cake up"...people might be like "Who is cassidy? and why would telling him to put lots of money up be treating him like cassidy would?"

    Naw I know. It was the one I wanted to use in the first place, but was hesitant, just cuz I didn't think EVERYONE would get it.

    Not trying to Jock on my own suggestion, but that whole "he can't get me with rhymes, Akons Bentley to shine, Dre songs of Em in his prime, ur arch-nemesis mind,Raekwon chef's design, fast as hedgehog in Genesis time" (not in order) killed me. Also the Mortal Kombat scheme from the same battle.

    I always like as a Hollow quotable - "ya doogg is a street soldier so doooooodgge from these heat blowers, revolvers with speed loaders, lodged into each shoulder"

    It captures his style, it's easy for anyone to understand and it's a dope quotable from one of his best battles
