Illmac voted Bender. Proof that he's a rappers rapper.
What's with all the threads trying to discredit bender?
Honestly, it wasn't as good as the previous 2, but it's like a trademark, and is way better than "smack, who is this ______"
Nah Illmac just really hates sketch menace
"Smack who is this nigga" scheme used on Calicoe by Young Ill is much more memorable and iconic, than the Sorry Player scheme. It's impact on battle rap on a whole is evident by the amount of people in almost every league that's mimicked it.
sketch got beat on some GROWN MAN SHIT.
The phrase he's a rapper's rapper is a cop out, even if it's true. You're acting as catering to a smaller niche audience makes him more impressive than someone that can cater to a large and diverse one.
Who's the better director, Stephen Spielberg or Andrei Tarkovsky?
That man get's it!!!
I agree about the impact.
but then he used it against Rich
and then again vs DNA
How was I arrogant? I said maybe you understand how writing works, and maybe you don't. Maybe you've written a few verses yourself, doesn't make you a good writer.
Christ almighty!@ I can't take it!! You guys consistently make the worst half-argument statements I've ever seen!!!*$&!%$@#^$
And I mean you, Stattlebattle, and whoever you're responding to. And a lot of other people. You guys might as well be saying Yes! and No! back and forth.
Arguments need to be built upon a ground of supporting statements and rhetoric. Not flat sentences and pointless rhetorical questions. "Rapper's Rapper" could use some justification.... but so can the insinuation that appealing to a large audience = better than.
PS: I don't know who Andy Tarkosaur is but Stephen Spielberg's movies suck.
Are you also gonna try arguing (or at least, implying) that N'Sync's album 'No Strings Attached' is better than Mozart's Requiem Mass because it made more money?
The RM user with the Guy Debord avatar should get in here.
What? Mozart appeals to the masses across various demographics. N'Sync appeals to a smaller demographic.
Look up Andrei Tarkovsky, the guy is the GOAT movie director's director.
Once great and majestic but now sad and pathetic/Considered a beast because you know how to work similes, I’m feeling apathetic/ Let’s shadow box/can you outwit a fox? Your rhymes a cage, my schemes personified rage. I speak to your humanity/where is your sanity? It’s insanity to come at me using like or as 10 times in a row/ I’m not going to outdo you by copying your style that be low /Here’s my thesis/Your preference to similes is your crutch, now you’re not looking like much/I had a thought and that thought brought forth fire your situation is looking dire/ Let these forum vultures attack me if for any sign of weakness/My cadence may not be as good as ness is/ But no matter how bad I do, I brought fire to this community/ I don’t pretend to be hard so these vultures will try to pick me apart/ I must applaud the shameful unity/Take a stab at the chest, ears and heart/ No matter what you do with this one performance I will always be considered a titan/People thinking you’re unbeatable is all an illusion. Comrades! A call to action/ Here is a notion/Use not one simile but a few metaphors and a bit of personification/ Before I forget when I had that scheme about fire and vultures I was planning on referencing Greek culture/So there’s no confusion I’m Promthesus Unbound/ How do you like that allusion? Are you sure you want to go another round?
Let it be known I enjoy the sorry player schemes. Just wished he'd switch up the scheme sometimes with metaphors and personifications. If he has, then I'll take that last sentence back.
see kids, not everyone can write well
I guarantee that at no point in history has Mozart's music had the audience N'Sync had circa 2000.
that's ok... thanks though.
I prefer John Waters.
Tarkovsky is the greatest ever. His rivals are only Bresson and Ozu. Case closed. Kiarostami sits comfortably at #4.
All in good fun, I did that out of boredom
But yea I enjoy the sorry player schemes. I wonder if Bender tires of doing them and only does it because his audience loves them sometimes
Ozu's not my preference, too many shots of objects that you can't be sure if they contribute to the plot in any form or manner.
Bender is a rapper's rapper.
Fair enough, I think Late Spring is one of the greatest ever. I think the objects cannot be understood symbolically or metaphorically, only pragmatically. There're no sermons under stones, just in them.
I like that line where is it from? But yea I recently just finished a class dealing with World Cinema, sadly Ozu was done last so you would have been displeased.
