This is an update from a thread I made a few months ago. (I apologize for the length of the posts, however this is a rather large project so I want everyone to get the full grasp of it) I am a graphic designer, as a portfolio piece, I am going to design a book and "battler cards" and other pieces, listing the 50 greatest battlers of all-time. I want it to take into account every possible type and era of battling so as to not omit anyone. I'm aware its difficult to compare eras, because of many different reasons, but I want it to be complete. You have to take into account how each battler ranked in their era, their type of battling, etc. There will also be both written and freestyle battlers all thrown in together, I just need help deciphering who is best at 'what they do'. I don't want people to be completely blinded by the GT, KOTD, DF battles of the past year or so (which I love) and say things like, "Cruger should be up there" or something to this effect. Cruger might be my favorite current battler, and I think he is very good, however his body of work is still relatively small so he can't be up there just yet (obviously some fairly new battlers have done more in a short time so they will be there, e.g. Dumbfoundead) The book will be alphabetical, so don't worry about numbering them 1-50 or whatever. I encourage you to add/take away any you see fit, keeping in mind to not play 'favorites' (there's some guys on my list I don't really like, but I can't deny their ability) so as to make this as accurate as possible. I've been a battle fan for a long time and did quite a bit of research concerning this project, but I may have forgotten a couple of guys so point those out as well. thanks (the last two threads have been a big help). TOP 50 A- Adeem, Anecdote B- Bishop Brigante, Bo-Rat, Breeze Evaflowin, Busy Bee C- Craig G, C-Rayz Walz D- Dizaster, Dumbfoundead E- Eminem, Eyedea F- Franco I- Illmaculate, Immortal Technique, Iron Solomon J- Jin, Juice, Justice K- Kid Twist, Kool Moe Dee L- Loaded Lux, Locksmith, Lord Finesse M- Mac Lethal, Madd Illz, Madness, Many Styles, Murda Mook N- Nems, Nocando O- Okwerdz, Organik, Otherwize P- Passwurdz, P.E.A.C.E, Possessed, Presence, Professor Green R- Reignman, Respek BA, Rhymefest, Roxanne Shante S- Sage Francis, Serius Jones, Supernatural, Swann T- Thesaurus, Tonedeff W- Wrekonize Whomever you think should be out just let me know, and whom you would replace them with. Here is a list of guys who "just missed it" for me. A- Arkaic B- Brother Ali D- Diabolic H- Hollow Da Don, Hommy Hom J- Jae Millz, Johnny Storm M- MarvWon, Math Hoffa, Mecca, Murs P- Pack Fm, Pumpkinhead Q- Quest Mcody R- Reed Dollaz S- Stig W- Whashisface I'm also now making another section in the book listing the top 10-15 leagues/tournaments/organizations and their contributors, in battling history. (I know less about this, so help is definitely encouraged.) (In no order) Scribble Jam Fight Klub Grind Time/KOTD/DF Rap Olympics Mic Fights Jumpoff Smack Tourettes Lounge Battles Rock Steady Battle for Supremacy Blaze Battles New Music Seminar Brainstorm SuperBowl Battles 106 and Park Proud 2B eh Battle MC Braggin Rites There really is no specific # for this section, I just wanted to highlight some of these because I thought they were worth mentioning (also in all honesty, as a piece, it will look more complete in my portfolio). If someone could help me with what has historically been the most well known battle league in Canada (before KOTD) I'd appreciate it. Thanks Again.
