Serius Jones is actually my favorite battler. (Lux being my favorite writer)
Gregriek is the man for this.
Hey guys, thanks for the feedback.
Me and Greg are both pretty excited about this project, it's nice to have some battle related content to sink my teeth into as a writer.
Obviously, the people who frequent and post on a site like this are our target audience, so you criticisms on how these read are really important to me in how I write this shit. I know RM can devolve into less serious topics a lot of the time but I'm hopeful that the knowledgeable heads on here can push us in the right direction in making this the best possible product it can be.
Again, thanks for the props and all of the comments are greatly appreciated.
it is good to know that one of the ppl working on this project is a regular joe just like us. if the authors were to irregular i may be less interested so it is definately good to know
when do u suppose this will be released? i was considering giving it to my wife for xmas
And yeah, at the people talking about the legacy or reputation of guys like Serius, Mook and Lux, you really have to consider that they were a product of their time. When these dudes were battling it was a much different platform with a considerably different audience and exposure model than we have today.
Straight up, the way that Serius capitalized on that platform, the way he engineered his style for Fight Klub and his creativity are just insane. He's a top 10 dude for me. What he accomplished during his prime in that era of battle rap is infinitely more impressive than what some of the people considered top tier are doing in this era of battle rap to me.
This shit is real impressive bro, major props for doing shit like this
yo gregrieke do you have a design portfolio? i would really like to see it if you could pm it to me or shoot me your email i would greatly appreciate it
This is incredible dude. I'm going to follow up so I can buy this book.
Serius Jones is easily one of the best ever. Whenever he battles you know everyone has their eyes on him, some of the strongest presence in battle rap.
Great illustrations and very, very well written. I'd love to purchase a copy.
Ya, I agree with the fun, informal style. These battle cats are personalities, like comic book heros and villains. I think the best way to capture or further emphasize that essence, that battle essence is to write as if you are conversating to a friend about the character, like if you were telling a tale or urban legend.
Serius was the man. My favorite battle rapper ever.
id buy one, just so you would run out and not get to sell it to some other poor soul.
thats just the kinda guy i am.
