    Yea we had originally planned on an "in-person" interview, but we kind of kept missing each other, he got a new phone or something, our schedules didn't match up, etc. So I finally was able to get a hold of him the other night, and I asked if he wanted to just do it then.

    Sucks, cuz I really would've liked to have gotten that one recorded, but I think at that point we both decided it was best if we just got it done. Rex was a helluva nice guy. I got the PH one recorded, so I'll probably post that one soon.

    yea possessed is on. They're the two British MCs that made it (Respek BA also made it)

    Possessed in the wrc's was one of the more impressive things i've seen in battling.

    lol, admittedly I don't know about recorders, and I'll be honest the one i got looks like one of those things in an old detective movie. I mean its new and everything, I just feel like colombo or some shit when I go to interview.

    Also I know England has like counties but no states/provinces (I think anyways). Its just a small thing but at the top under his name should it be "London, England" or something else? (i know, "google: 'London, county' moron" but there seemed to be conflicting/confusing answers there as well.)

    I think Green may deserve the spot but I think that the part about "hostile crowd wanting him to fail" @ The Mixtape Summit couldn't possibly be farther from the truth. He got fucking roasted by Serius Jones, choked up, and the crowd gave Fight Klub shit and made them restart despite FightKlub rules stating the shit was over and Serius being announced as the winner. It was obviously a pro Green crowd and Anti-Jones for some reason.

    I'd just leave it at London. Even some people in the UK are confused by London.

    I disagree Professor Green being included on this. I hate his music, and I've never been impressed by his battles. If you wanna include a British battler why don't you include Possessed?

    I'm not saying Professor Green dosn't deserve the pop success currently he's getting, he clearly does, but he should not be a candidate for any top-50 of all time list when it comes to rapping.

    Yea, this is actually one of my favorite illustrations from the book, and oddly enough it was one of the first i did.

    I encourage you to definitely check him out, but also keep in mind he mainly battled from like 03-05, so if you are a relatively new fan you might not be too impressed with the quality of his lines. But in his time he was good.
