Yeah but what happened in Canada for years doesn't matter if it didn't have any impact of the overall battle scene. Unfortunately, what happens in the USA has an impact everywhere. Nobody in America (the birth place and home of battle rapping) can tell you what the Canada battle scene had as an impact in the overall battle scene. Eminem's 8 mile had an influence. Smack had an influence, Fight Klub had an influence, 106 and Park had an influence, Scribble Jam had an influence, The Fresh Coast had an influence and NY had an influence. Illmaculate and The Saraus became legends after WRC's and NO one rates a Canadian, an English, or an Australian, as top battle rapper of alltime. I'm not trying to play Home Team with this (USA), but don't act like another country had any influence on this battle rapping compared to the 99.9% Americans and it's rappers had on the overall battle scene.
