I haven't seen anything, much prefer writing those to standard text battles these days though.
What are Swag and Flow battles?
Where rhyme scheme and bragging matter more then punchlines.
Yeah, pretty self-explanitory I thought, I threw up my verse vs. Blanco Bishop in the Open Mic forum so you have more of an idea.
Wanted to be sure, yo. Swag and Flow round my way means that heavy punchlines are focused through rhyme scheme bragging flow and visuals. Different interpretation.
I'll do that kinda battle vs you, Baron.
And for the record? Bragging and boasting ARE punchlines. They're just not personal attacks vs your opponent, but they're "positive personals" for you as you're big uppin yaself. And that's crucial. Too many people sleep on that, which imo is a stupid thing to do.
How does that work lol? )
Wouldn't min getting into this seen it slot on NC @Baron Mynd
I think these things are DOPE!
They take me a while to write though, I won't lie. Beyond and Neighbor kill it if you get a chance to peep any by them.
I seen neighs own... bey not so much but they do kill it... saw your link against blanco dude sucked
I'm down for this kinda battle vs anyone. Any takers? Anyone ready to face their Deth?
I don't think he sucked, I actually rate him, he has a lot of potential, just hasn't done thing anywhere near as long as some of us.
He'll come good.
He'll me outnun that shit @Baron Mynd I wanna get into it on Nc
In english this time, please?
Teach me sorry.... On mobile
Teach me cause I wanna get into these battles on NC as well
It's basically like...
These things ARE punchline orientated I suppose, but rather than having to insult your opponent, the lines can just be bragging lines. Not every 'punchline' has to be an insult.
These bragging punchlines I suppose give it the 'swag' element to it.
However, the ones who are really good at these will also have insane rhyme schemes to their verses so they have a real implied rhythm as they're read, giving it the 'flow' element to them.
Basically the one who combines the two the best wins.
Read up on a couple though to get more of an idea. I don't want to link in here incase the Mods think I'm spamming for whatever reason, but you know enough other boards to check some out anyway haha!
I have a solid grasp of what you meant the moment you said it. For years, I have argued that braggin on yaself IS a punchline. Talking about how peerlessly dope you are is common sense dope and a punchline. Only narrow minded morons refuse to recognize bragging as punchines; literally all of the G.O.A.T. rappers have are and will do so.
I thought I made that point with THIS pos...
I'm crazy hung leave chicks sprung while I'm aiming cum,
Lazy drunk force my junk through ya bitch throat I call it shaving tongue.
