    Lee sounded like he might consider battling in a post but he doesn't seem that interested in it. Monsters completely done though I think.

    yup .. in fact, pretty much everything cruger said about his performance, hype, and let down was true

    Truth even did the react to his own line that gets no reaction, right after Cruger told him that's what he does lol ... he tried to play if off, though

    I think he used to be good to them when Freestyles ran the world ... but I think that he hasn't figured out how to write in a written battle .. when you first start it can take a few tries before you realize that its not like Freestyle battle


    some freestyle expert write there rhymes thinking they are going to be afforded the same recognition for poor setups and structure as they would in freestyle


    what they haven't realized yet is that there's an instincual leeway given when people believe that what your saying is being made up as you say or moments before you said it ... your written battle don't get the same leniency cause .. you had days or more to think of that bullshit

    edit:
    same shit would happen if Super Nat or somebody came back to battle

    Straight up, Cruger is far and away the best British battler at it right now, and one of the better battlers in the world.

    Most natural delivery in battle rap.

    Here are the things I enjoy about watching Cruger battle in an itemized list:

    - He always picks interesting, original and well executed concepts. Even when using material that is not as sharp or specific as his best character assassination bars (such as Laura Tarsi or the start of his third about Truth's hype and potential) he still finds a way to execute a concept like a long neck in an original way with his wordplay and patterns.

    - His structure is unbelievable. When he went into the bit about how Truth stretches his bars, he carried that scheme with ease while still proving a point about how useless it is to stay in that setup-setup-setup-punchline format. That was like, a structural tutorial on the idea of structure. Fucking meta bro.

    - He never appears to be forced. He's comfortable as fuck. He goes out there and spits his bars with an easygoing confidence that is just swagged the fuck out. He knows his shit is good, he doesn't have to dress it up with anything other than his own personality and rhythm.

    - He's irreverent, different, original, creative ... whatever the fuck you want to call it.

    - He's white. As a white Canadian battle fan, it is important I include this in my list in order to justify stereotypes about our fanbase.

    Lee and Truth had a 2 vs 2 booked and Lee vs Nishi was supposed to go down, but both fell through.

    Honestly, Lee Scott put Truth in a bodybag, Illmac put that in a bodybag and Cruger threw it in a river.

    Cruger has to be next inline for the title shot, he's dufflebagged brehs with the most casual style ever.

    are you talking about Don't Flop Championship?? didn't know they had one


    I wonder what Cruger would do with a title match in KOTD ... he's been over there, at least twice and won both times, right?? ... against Jack and Charron ... one more, I think he should get the title shot


    that would be crazy cross promotion for both leagues, whom seem to work closely together, anyway

    Yeah the first DF one is Oshea vs Sensa in Leeds I think

    Yeah to be honest Cruger has got a list of international scalps now so why not. KOTD need to select about 8 rappers to battle their way for a title shot and Cruger would be a good choice.

    Cruger vs Caustic would work well IMO, there isn't really anybody with the same style as him in my opinion which is part of what makes him so good.

    Nice link nerd bird

    Ain't Monster not battling for personal reasons to do with his girlfriend? That's pretty understandable tbh.

    Wait, this battle has a 5 star rating right now?

    Please.

    Cruger was good, but it wasn't his best, and Truth was blah.

    This gets five stars around here?
