    It seems that rep counts alot these days to go to the big events and i was just wondering what other peoples opinion were on these? Do you guys think rep actually counts? Like some events require invites and thats rep but the unheard cats are left in the shadows see what im sayin? Also, oh yeah does dick ryding come with the rep hahahaha.

    Pretty much. I mean, you don't really get rep unless people know that you're ill at battlin. Also, the shit does kinda suck, though. I mean, Juice is a perfect example of this; apparently, at Scribble (I wasn't there, but I heard..) that he lost TWICE, but the judges voted him a win anyway because of his rep, ya know?

    thats what i mean though.. It can work in both ways..

    PERFECT EXAMPLE=Shells..

    kid is horrible but he got rep for winning Unsigned hype and placing in blaze..(And an army of dicckriders following him from battle to battle)

    c'mon now do u think the kid would stand a chance at scribble?? .. .. !! .. ..

    This is my point though he got a rep for being a battler(even tho he is garbage)..
    But I would be so quick to boo him even if he was to come real nice against someone just because I hate him and everything he reprasents.. And I know thats ignorant but i am being honest.................

    Thats what I mean it can work both ways..

    No matter what though this battle shtt is never gonna be perfectly fair in every instance let alone at all..

    PEACE!!..

    I think rep matters and I think it should matter. If you are an unkown emcee that means you haven't paid all your dues yet, so why should you be able to say two hot lines and beat someone known( who has no clue who you are and is prolly freestyling his disses) If you are unknown, that means you are gunning for people. So who is more in harms way the sniper or the victim? If you are gonna be a sniper and try to gun down someone with clout then you better not hit him in the knee, because even if you blow out his legs he is still crawling away with the victory...you follow so far? Point is, if you are unknown you have the edge, so you better serve up the person with a rep or expect his rep to beat you which it rightfully should, becuase one time the person with the rep was in your position and he did something right....

    On the other hand if you have a rep and you suck some night, doesn't mean you automatically should get a win, but as long as you are known and you hold your ground without being EMBARRRAAASSEEEED, you rightfully deserve what you have gained,

    I'm drunk not sure if that makes sense but whatever, it does in my mind

    yea rep matters. I changed my mind on those juice battles, I'm sure he beat wreckognize and I think he beat dose noun as well. this is after watching it several times.

    I think rep definatly matters in a battle where there is a prize 1,000 there should be dope battle emcees and up, if your gunna put up that much money for the contest you want people to see a good show and come back. Ive been to, too many battles where its cats first time battling which is cool, but dont do it on stage. I also think that in battles where you need an invite they should allow some spots open and except tapes to let newbies in. And as far as dickriding goes, fuck that eveyone has their off days.

    dude, you know that I will hook the fuck up out of that battle when the time is right, but I will
    a)probably be dead at the hands of mr. dibbs or someone else
    b)not have footage next year of the whole battle to hook people up with (i.e. all of you)
    if I release that shit now. when the scribble video comes out, I will distribute it across the web and I promise you you'll have every dope battle in high quality mp4's. Until that time you'll have to make due with all the other footage I hook up. Don't worry, I think teh served footage and streetrock will be higher quality battling. I definately think served battle was higher level than scribble jam and a better battle, although jack cracker really impressed me, along with some others. peace and I should have some served clips soon.
