    I remember when she said KRS's name sounded like a whack radio station.

    I'm glad she is in, its about time more posters here recognized the history involved in battling. I hate hearing lectures on hip hop from 24 year olds that think battling started in the 90's.

    Thanks man (and everyone else for the positive comments)...I'm not trying to make fun of anyone for not knowing about shante or anything like that, but i do hope that it encourages some of the people who are not familiar with her to check out some of her stuff.

    A couple of battles from the New Music Seminar tourney (Busy Bee is also in the book, and his bio can be found in the subforum):

    If it wasn't for broads like her you probably wouldn't be on this board bitching about this right now. Fall back.

    lmao I'm keeping it real , nooo bodyyy in this thread ever heard of her until they posted it, be serious, she isnt anything in the battle world, she did good in music, but battling come on now, she never influenced a bar nowadays in any battler rappers life, she dont get mentioned, quoted, never mind i dont dick ride, that bitch is irrelevant

    i knew who she was too, trust. but for music, to rank her as one of the 50 greatest battlers ever, is a joke

    Keep in mind this book was being written before the emergence of this modern written era of battling.

    I'm surprised by your outrage, when they're are plenty of battler's (specifically international) that shouldn't be amongst the 50 greatest, and their resume pails in comparison of yours.

    Hey, is it possible to get an updated version of the list? Strictly out of curiosity. I know T-rex is in there now but I have no idea who's been taken in and out.

    @johnny storm

    im from new york and grew up in the 70s
    you really had to be around back then to fully get it
    -
    it's funny - the reason they used to hav those new music seminars was that no one really checked for rap back then - it was still trying to get put on in the music business
    -
    roxanne shante really put mc clashes on the map!
    the utfo thing was huge
    for a second, it seemed everyone was coming out with roxanne songs lol
    and as u hear, she battles live too. famously
    to be in the roxanne wars and the bridge wars,,, she's a legend

    so all this 'bitch, broad, troll, nobody' stuff u talk may just be how you speak
    -
    but she is a verteran pioneer who helped build the house you're trying to stand in
    so please.... wait 30 years... and see... who is calling the name 'johnny storm' in the history of mc battle

    good vibes

    take care man

    point taken, the same way NO ONE EVER mentions her now, ur syaing they wont mention me. difference is I'm just getting started and her ship done sailed. in 30 years if u think my name wont be bigger than hers in BATTLING then u must be on dust.
    this generation knows about me and not her, so I already have a huge head start. I know ur her biggest fan but "C'MON SON"
