    From last time, Nems for Whashisface and I think Bo-rat for someone else have been the only changes. I know Nems' video footage on the internet isn't the best, but he was 25-4 at Fight Klub, and is the all-time winningest rapper there (Serius Jones is second with like 12 or something). His battle with Marv is (IMO) one of the best "street" battles of all-time.

    From the ORIGINAL list, only like 10 names have ever changed, I just think people saw guys like Arkaic and Hom on the first one and thought it was a horrible list or whatever. That's fine, just so long as I get a solid list at the end. But the bulk of the names that were on this list now were on the first one, it just seemed like some people saw guys they really didn't like and said it was a bad list in the beginning. Whatever is the case, please continue to suggest people, and also suggestions on leagues/tourneys are encouraged as well.

    Thanks.

    See I don't really know about some of these guys though, and others don't seem to as well that's why they've been on/off the list. All three of those were on the original one, yes. Then I took them off, and even in this thread, its been suggested to put canibus in. LL cool j was also suggested here, but I've also been told he barely ever face-to-face battled, so I'm not really sure what to believe.

    All three of those guys I got conflicting opinions on, KRS-One as well.

    Since Anecdote, Justice, Nems, and Organik have all been adressed, I'll answer the rest.

    Bishop was probably the most well-known battler of all-time in Canada, (before the WRC's came along) he has countless wins up there. He also beat Jin once (badly) when Jin was at his peak, and they had 3 total battles (I believe Jin won the other two though).

    Lush, by his own admission, doesn't make the Top 50 as a battler. For me to not recognize him in some way though is obviously ridiculous. He is going to be in the contributor's chapter, where the leagues/tourney's are. I encourage ppl to give suggestions there as well.

    Pack Fm-I'm not sold on him, so you think Many Styles or DBD should be ahead of him then?

    Thanks for the compliment on the illustrations. And the list is definitely not set in stone.

    *Feelings Hurt* :(

    Its more a combination of things. Talent is obviously way up there at the top, but also things like impact, longevity, level of competition, and other things were factored in as well.

    Man these shits take a minute, not gonna lie. I have a regular boring ass 40-50 hour a week graphic design job. But I try to get a lot of them done there, so long as my boss is a safe distance away from my fucking cubicle. I'm trying to get it done quickly, but it will still be a minute in all honesty.

    Also, as with Diz and Madness earlier, do you possibly think you could send me a bio? or accolades. Big battles you've been in/won, and so forth. Thanks.

    this is DOPE, ill graphics

    Greg you will always have your haters/ people who argue the list but stick to it, props on actually doing something

    Every country has its top 50 battlers etc so i can undertsnad why people want certain rappers form certain countries in it but i think you have covered this well, would have liked to see Twist in though just because of the amount of battles hes done last year

    major props

    Bishop's crew is the wiseguys (drake, young tony, ken masters) not the good fellaz. Goodfellaz is some emo-pop group he did one mtv feature with.

    This list is kind of retarded. I definitely agree with some of the names
    But is it the 50 best ever?
    Or the 50 most known..
    Or the 50 battlers who've been around the longest.
    It's definitely not the 50 best though right

    As you can clearly see in my post I indicated that I hadn't seen many battles outside of WRC by Organik and Anecdote. I have caught 90% of battles that have happened in the last 6 or 7 years so those just weren't on my radar.

    As for me not giving my opinion, fuck off. Theres a reason its an opinion and I'm not gonna go research every dudes fuckin battle before I say there are people that deserve to be on the list before them. Also I don't have qualm with the artists or their battles I like them both, I just don't think they are top 50 of all time in any way.

    to the competitions add Braggin' Rites (incredible amount of exposure for battle legends it actually was one of the stepping stones to the new school) ; End of the Weak MC Challenge ( I think this applies heavily even if it isn't a fuck your mother style battle forum); Superbowl Battle; and DFX? or whatever battles Breez did on MTV with Sway on MTV; even add Sway and Tek's Wake up Show they have supported and held battles
