^^^ well its only the people who are doing that who make it like that. (granted, which is the vast majority of battle rap) The fact that the vast majority of fans, and rappers perpetuate it is the only reason "battling is never true." I'm not arguing that battle rap at this stage isnt like that, because it is. But I'm saying it doesnt have to be like that. Battle rap originally wasn't about people calling each other faggots, it became that. It's not like someone has to say dry 100% factual observation statement sentences. You can still use metaphors and all that and there still plenty of creativity way to do you without talking about your breakfast or movie collection. I am kinda torn on the subject cause like I said earlier, if people are acting "too real" then it definitely wouldn't be as popular and probably would be less entertaining overall.
