    What do you consider biting? I seen a thread about Fresco biting Em for using 1 line in a setup which was paying homage.. We got willy saying fresco bit bmagic cause he used 10 year old wordplay in a making fun of it context..

    To me biting is when you use the same concept and maybe flip a few things around.. Like that bmagic "point at you with the long cap like uncle sam" If someone was like "Think i was on a poster when you see me pointing at you with that long cap.. Uncle Sam" thats biting..


    Example of "questionable" biting --

    Leave ya body on ice when I raise both arms.. Think i scored a goal in hockey

    Its like Sidney Crosby scored a goal.. When I raise these arms and you on that ice

    Kind of the same thing, but thats an example.. Raising arms, scoring a goal in hockey.. thats a pretty easy thing to use, whos to say 2 people cant think of it in different ways?

    I mean really, some shit is going to be repeated, some ideas will be the same, but if its not CLEARLY biting, who knows..

    I thought this was gonna be about biting & sex- I support that

    Rap biting- it is nearly imposible 2 not bite some other artist, whether unintentionally or intentionally b/c people get influenced by what they are exposed 2. So long as the product is not 100% plagarized & the author admits that they were influenced by some1 else I have no fucking problem w/ it

    Rhymes that are too familiar for my ear
    Repeated puns, wordplay, punchlines
    Repeated angles


    Some of it happens accidentally but the way I evaluate it is how good/how much material you came up with yourself
    If your strongest points at the battle was stolen what good are you

    biting is more along the lines of everything that you hear after the words,

    "round 1 on diaz let's go!"

    Thought this was gonna be about that 40 Cal line from J Pro vs. Sun Tzu thread.

    40 Cal - "I put him in a all white cast like Seinfeld." (vs. Sam Scarfo back in the day in Fight Klub)

    J-Pro - "I'll leave you in a full white cast like Friends and Seinfeld." (vs. Sun Tzu @ Blackout 3)

    Damn! now thats definitely biting.

    Also theres context of time like i never heard someone flip putting prices on ya head the way Dose did (put a price on ya head tag on ya toe cut ya living expense. OR Put a price on ya head and send my niggas shopping)

    if someone comes up with those lines esp the 2nd one its simple enough but i ve never heard that till Dose so post Dose im calling it a bite even though its simple

    Biting is taking someone elses ish that you have heard and trying to claim it as yours and original. Rehashing someone old concept ( Like doing the Sorry Player vs Bender) is not really biting as you are hoping people know where it's from

    Plus you have too look into the liklihood of them hearing the lyric in question

    This is a good example of what i meant..

    Is that really biting? Friends, seinfield, pretty popular shows all over.. Common knowledge they have an all white cast.. Two people couldnt think of that same concept?

    Well, at this point it's not about Seinfeld or friends
    It's about the use of the word white cast

    It's the skill not the reference
