Discussion in 'The 50 Greatest Battle Rappers of All-Time' started by gregrieke20, Nov 9, 2011.
Oh Ok....totally understand what you saying.
american nationalists fuck off
Greg, I just re-read the original thread where you had the 50 Greatest Battlers of All Time and DEAD at you thinking I was originally a troll in that thread It just goes to show how much this board has changed.
Its funny, cuz I actually remember thinking it might be a white guy using the name "tyrone" (as its traditionally a black name) and trolling in favor of street rappers lol.
I've always been a huge fan of street battling, of freestyle battling, just of it all, so I just don't want to have any glaring omissions from the list.
Also, Reignman is on the list...I had the interview with him maybe a month and a half ago. His will be the next one posted probably.
Lol, of course man, whichever you'd like. Whether it be from the freestyle days or whatever else.
Tbh, this debate and book your making made me aware of battle rapper accomplishments that previously I was unaware about. So good work and props on it and can't wait to purchase a copy.
I really like the Reignman profile. One of my favorites to write. I feel like I'm starting to get a little more energy for these ... hopefully the writing isn't getting too repetitive or stale for you guys. I'm also hopeful that once we've got all of the bios set, we can get a little help from the community in terms of phrasing and editing ... they all look like a blur to me at this point, I'll need a fresh set of eyes to go through them.
Thanks for the positive feedback from everyone.
Yea, some of that seemed a bit much, imo, and at times even relatively pauseworthy, lol...but by in large Joe has done a FANTASTIC job.
This. Regardless of countries and whatever else.
Bill Russell was 6-9 220...athletically he probably wouldn't be able to keep up with the size, strength, and speed of a guy like Shaq or even say Dwight Howard. But NO ONE would leave him off their top 5 centers of all-time (he'd probably be #1 on many lists).
Battling, like pretty much everything else in life has gotten more advanced as its gone along. You have to think about a guys body of work in his time, or else what's considered "the best" will always be whats happened in the last couple years (which is retarded imo).
Or like special effects in movies or some shit...what was considered "great" or "innovative" 25 years ago would be looked at as elementary today...but that shouldn't discredit what happened 25 years ago.
Fuck that, that paragraph is awesome!
hahahahaahahaa...i guess i can't argue that.
Sorry Reignman, T-Rex, Reed Dollarz, Jae Millz, E. Ness, Murda Mook, Locksmith, Marvwon, Quest McCody, Math Hoffa, The Sarus, Illmac, Justic, Jin, Serius Jones, Iron Solomon etc....all battled during that same time as Organik, so we do have contemporaries to compare him from during that era.
Naw I just meant more in general terms with that, not organic specifically. More so with the 'older guys' tho...Craig g, supernatural n so forth. Shoulda been more Clear
Biotch! You wish you had a phone like mine...
Aside from just hosting KOTD events, Organik is a beast..I co-sign the notion that dude needs to start back up battling.
Tyrone is a traditional Irish name.
i know a white guy names tyrone
In the USA, the only guys named Tyrone are urban black people LML
You've been working on this book for a WHILE

Sang this shit karaoke like a month ago...fuckin killed it.
