    Are you aware of Presence's Brainstorm days? I imagine you must be considering the Tourettes knowledge you have ... I can't see how the wins he got over Illmac and Iron at Brainstorm back in the day, coupled with his teaming up with Illspokin prior to the WRC's setting the tone of 2 on 2 battles for a little while would be less impressive of a resume than what Tantrum or Lor have done at Tourettes.

    I agree Whashisface has a great resume and should probably be on the list, but I don't think Presence is the guy to go after when critiquing a resume.

    Yes, I am aware of his brainstorm days. I still have Whashisface over Presence. Hypothetically, His entire career has been crippled by Illmaculate and Thesaurus pretty much...If these two dudes (Arguably the two greatest freestyle battle rappers alive) didnt exist then it wouldnt be a question as to whether Whashisface should be on the list or not.

    And I hold Tantrums wins at Tourettes just as impressive as Presence wins at Brainstorm.

    I had Whashisface on the original list, and believe me, he's getting serious consideration.

    Plus it would be nice to have a black dude that's an international battler on the list.

    Fine. Okay, then how about Okwerdz? How does his resume compare to Okwerdz?


    I am NOT looking to have people removed from the list...I'm making a SERIOUS note that Whashisface has an incredible Career.



    Ahaha....Dude...Thesaurus and Illmaculate are two names thats nearly IMPOSSIBLE to overcome when it comes to Career performence...These are the two names that I'm sure haunt Whashisface everyday....Dude just might be the greatest of all time in another era of battle rap..He was just born around the same time as Thesaurus and Illmaculate...

    Trust that I understand the overall argument of "where's the proof" for a lot of the guys on the list. But I never saw Ty Cobb hit a baseball, and there is very little video of him doing it, but I'd never dispute the fact that he is one of the greatest hitters of all-time.

    I think in battling, for the early guys, cosigns from legends in the game (which Craig G has more than enough of) are good enough reasons to allow them to make the list. He handed Supernat his first ever loss, to me that speaks a great deal to his ability.

    Lol, I've never gone from disliking a poster to liking a poster so much as I did with Get 2 da choppa's case. At first I thought he was an idiot, now I see the genius, and its hilarious.

    thank you for answering my question. i knew about the supernatural battle.i think while its ignorant to go strictly by youtube footage its hard not to but i guess its simular to mook, lux, millz and others. this does clear some things up.

    Yea, he's like the greatest "legend" in Canadian battling history. He beat Jin when Jin was JIN and was the first Canadian to win on 106 and park. He battled up there for like 10 years.

    Its another case of lack of footage, but his choice is legitimate. I dont know a ton about Canadian battling history, but I'm pretty sure a lot of Canadians would cosign his choice.

    Now that you mention it..I dont like the cover either.


    As dope as those "Baseball card" pictures look...Best not milk them too much...Save then for the inside pages and dont put them on the cover. I think it would be best to get a GREAT picture of a battle event..Maybe put together a collage or something...Something thats going to catch the eye of the not-so-average fan or book reader.

    Also, I think its best to think of ways to get people who arent into battle rap interested in this...I'm pretty sure the only people who would purchase it are fanatics like the ones on this forum...And I'm pretty sure your not going to be allowed to put eminem on the cover without eminem personally knowing about it....
