    1. Introduction

    This is the third week of the RSTL and things seem to be going very well. Everyone and I mean everyone has upped their game. It is very nice seeing how strong the league is. The writers are full of talent and potential. We also have some new writers in the league this week. There was only one no show this week which was nice. Let’s give a recap of the past weeks matches.

    2. Recap

    Shogun – This was a pretty solid piece for it being rushed. The multi’s were very good and the flow was on point. The imagery was good and I thought the vocab was solid. Now, I would like you to go into a little more depth story wise but you already recognized that before writing the verse. Nicely done Sho and I hope your next opponent shows up.

    Mad Orphan vs Cigma – In this matchup, both writers had very different styles to write this. Mad took a more comedic approach to his topic and gave the readers a very entertaining read that was enjoyable. Although you have times were your flow was a little shaky, you delivered on a nice story here. Cigma took a poetic take on his topic and it proves how much passion he has for poetry. He continues to grow in skills and wowed readers this week. This allowed him to pick up the 7-0 victory.

    T.a.C vs Shadow – This matchup was very difficult for readers to vote on and both writers continue to improve. T.a.C and Shadow have a long rivalry going. These two seem to go back and forth in victories. This time however, Shadow got the best of T.a.C has both displayed stellar stories that was enjoyable. T.a.C took a some what different approach to his style which readers seemed to really like. With a little more development on this, T.a.C should steam roll the league. Still, Shadow picked up the 4-2 win.

    Scrolls vs. NG – This matchup was pretty much an upset based on my predictions for last week. NG was slated to pick up a nice victory here and get himself back on track. His verse was strong, creative and had a good flow. The story was a little weaker than normal but still enjoyable. Scrolls, however, took things to another level. He actually had an opponent show up and he displayed a very impressive talent to not only beat NG 4-1 but to also move into the Championship match next week. Nicely done by both writers.

    Murderous vs. Calibre – In this matchup of the leagues two best writers so far, both put it all on the table. This was a very interesting matchup as these two writers wrote, two very different styles. Murderous took a unique yet very creative story that wasn’t only captivating but entertaining as well. Cal displayed his impressive rhyme scheme and beautiful flow to create a story that was emotional and entertaining. Sadly, only one writer could win and Murder took the win and moved into the championship match next week by beating Cal, 4-2.

    Murderous Keys
    Since The Dinosaurs And Before Two World Wars And Penicillin
    Earth Was Made Into A Trash Bin,
    Now A Hostile Environment to Live In
    We Unforgiving Killed In The Name of Human Progress
    God Blessed Those Not Obsessed With Material Objects
    Scientists Aspects; Many Swallowed Their Words In Inches,
    Served For Them On Dishes
    As The Expectation Misses And Promises Transform Into Wishes
    We Polluted the Future... No More “What It Used To”... Raping Mother Nature
    Sacrificed Several Species to Make Another Greater
    Played Creator While The Hole In the O-Zone Was Forming
    And Pay No Attention To The Early Warnings of Global Warming
    So Good Morning...

    Wake Up to a Day that You Can't Believe
    Carbon-Dioxide Makes the Air Thick and Hard to Breathe
    As The Sun Still Burns Earth, People Coughing And Choking
    Sun Lotion Soaking Into Their Skin Just To Stop It From Smoking
    Animals Are Clever Too, Most Don’t Choose To Breed
    Cause Offspring’s Lungs Get Too Confused And Weak
    Then They Refuse To Breathe
    The Warm Oceans Have Expanded and We're Beginning to See
    Ice From Polar Caps And Glaciers Melting Into The Now Ending Sea
    Rising Sea-Levels Have Completely Swamped Low-Lying Islands
    A Few Colonies Of Survivors Are Alive In The Highlands
    The Irony is That There's No Fresh Water for Any Irrigation

    This Used To Be A Place Where Families Come And Have Their Fun In The Sun
    All The Oil And Gas Barons Have Taken Their Money And Run
    Heavy Rainfall Disperses Between Long and Frequent Heat Waves

    We've Poisoned Humanity and Other Animals Join In The Panic
    Most Large Species have Been Forced To The Brink of Extinction
    In Sync With Mankind's Ever-Shrinking Distinction
    We Breathe Through Oxygen-Masks for Lack of better Protection
    The Air is Too Thick and Hot to Stop The Spread of Infection
    Birds are A Rare Sight... We Point and Stare When We See 'Em
    What Zoos Remain Are The Last Fragments Of A Living Museum
    Tropical Storms Hit Europe on a Regular basis
    Human Race Is Crumbling, Got Hardly Any Power Left
    To Harvest Courage And Enthusiasm From The 'Greenhouse' Effect
    But For Now, Paranoia Strikes As People Get Shocked At The Ice
    Hospitals Get Offered A Price Just For A Doctors Advice
    Entire Continents Were Transformed Wherever The Waves Hit
    Outside of My Oasis I Find the Weather Abrasive
    Together We Could Have Saved This... Now We'll Never See Glaciers
    In Some Places They Fight For Fresh Water and Clean Air
    It's Like Oil and Religion... Done That... Been There...
    But Beware And Pray Til The Day That This Tale is Fact
    We Will Prevail As Long As We Don't Fail To React...​

    "I hate the banks, if it wasn't for greedy bankers, we wouldn't be in a recession, hmm" - Thomas Manning

    Revenge

    Commuter Train,
    Confusion accumulates to a tune that imputes the brain.
    Induced by the movements made,
    cluttering carriages, music played.
    Headphones loud yet softened by the usual rain. . (ergh)
    I'm Glad there's only a few stops for the mood to change!
    It's hot & this costumes insane. .
    Face Mask well covered to conclude my aim
    & heal these wounds to soothe this pain.

    Lucrative thoughts aren't subdued as I walk from the station
    An awkward impatience, this is what i've wanted from day one
    Money!, it's rushing through my cortex
    My weapon clutching as I walk west, with short breaths *panting*
    am I ready?, well of course. . YES
    the floor wet from the rain, forming a puddle which lies from the banks view
    these niccas dont have a damn clue, nope
    open them automatic doors bada bam BOOM
    words aggressive in nature
    inventive of my progressive ascent to the papers!
    Great Bank Robber!
    a high acclaim, I don't care if they hate my behaviour
    Adrenaline rush is amazing & I'm trained for the dangers
    It's been placed in my nature

    Flip open the pager,
    "PLAY TIME"
    it's the time to let loose
    My rifle beside the steps to - the top stairs, (argghh)
    - Fuck if the cops chase
    the moment the long hand on the clocks change
    I've finished, the plots played. (argghhh)
    A sense on nostalgia pollutes my mind,
    I'm ready to do my crime
    and however big the mountain I choose to climb
    There's no excuse - soon its time
    .

    .

    .

    .

    .

    .
    "Put ya hands up, this a Stick Up!"
    .
    .
    .
    .
    . . . . But she's blocking my view, fuck!
    BEAUTIFUL. . as my pistol it moves up. .
    .
    .
    "GEORGE!!"
    .
    .
    her voice loud as it reaches my way . .
    SHE'S BEAUTIFUL. .but fuck it she can't see past my FACE. .
    I'm trying to tell her I'm not that guy , that she thinks she knows. .
    as I scream to her Nooooo!, She grabs me whole. .
    SHE'S BEAUTIFUL and still smiling as I'm shouting to leave,
    she signals to me as if she's wanting to speak.
    A deaf and dumb girl, her grip tight to my waist. .
    My times gone, if I can't get cash guess I'mma have to leave from this place.
    *Pushes her away*
    Out in the street, my back pressed against the wall.
    Thinking about the day, when I could of had it all. .
    .
    .
    *Close*

    (Just to throw it out there, I had to write this quick so sorry if there's lack of story, I just used the nature of the pic to write somethin’ that’s more message than story-But next week im dominating lol)

    "Fall of Humanity"

    We’re blind to affliction ‘cause the worlds been blurred with sin/
    We’ve wrecked the earth so much, to some it’s a curse to live/

    An example is poverty, which is merciless/
    Some results are murderous, such as malnourishment/
    We’ve all seen those commercials with a bunch of shirtless kids/..
    … who weren’t just thin/.. but so skeletal, they’d be bare bones if it weren’t for skin/
    Their frowns are permanent/…’cause since birth they lived in sadness so their mouths never learned to grin/

    What the fuck are we doin… if people are seen as a nuisance?/
    Throughout history our immorality has proven that our actions are in-human/
    More than half our planet has been ruined ‘cause of man-made pollutants/
    We keep screwin’ ourselves as if the task was kama sutric/
    But instead of “boobage”… we’re born with fetishes for weapons that we’re always causin’ doom with/
    We sent our troops over seas to preach about peace, screamin, “Amen”/
    In a nation where religious faith and beliefs are sacred/
    Yet, we’re just eliminatin’ peace, and increasin’ hatred/
    Even after Saddam Hussien’s regime was taken…/
    ..the middle-east has been a haven for radical extremist operations/
    And it’s been this way for ages/

    This is hell on earth, where humans beings are seen as worthless/
    There’s a high percent of mayhem, like the uprising of insurgents/
    But there’s matters more urgent that requires our alertness/
    Among the current list of shortages the country’s been concerned with:/
    Doctors, nurses, child-care physicians, and surgeons/
    …and of course a hospital for health professionals to work in/
    Here, there’s no dental care or medical insurance/
    Disease is the number one ‘cause of death, next to bearded men in turbans/
    If left untreated, illness spreads until infection surges/
    Eventually, symptoms from simple ailments overwhelmingly worsen/

    They’re too poor to pay for drugs, so they can’t procure any/
    So a simple virus that can typically be cured-quickly/..kills millions throughout the region simply ‘cause no medicine can be administered to a person who’s sickly/

    5. Verse Of The Week –

    Scrolls


    BOOOOOOM!!!!

    We woke to the sounds of explosive shells...like this world Jus opened realms and we just awoke in hell...
    My fuckin ears ringin like a broken bell...people yelling in English, but I never spoke it well...
    My son and I escaped outside, as the roof collapses...our home will soon be ashes, as the rebel forces passed and moved in masses....
    We huddled together, Jus tryin to stay warm...tryin not to trip the sensors on the claymores...
    As my sons sound asleep, I snuck around to peak...I can hear large amounts of feet and sounds of speech...
    I tip toe'd back to our hiding place...I gotta find a way to try and escape...
    If were found, we'll be tried and placed inside a cave as diamond slaves...

    *American soldiers moved further into Africa...trying to stop the rebel forces from enslaving the African people and slaughtering them...the sun rises, the fire fight continues*

    An American passed by, he told us to stay low...I nodded, and watched the rain flow off his stained clothes...
    He was followed by other brave souls...as we followed parallel on the same road...
    Then we saw the muzzle flash from the double blast...I grabbed his arm and fumbled past knowin escapin would be a troubled task...
    The bullets whizzin by, are comin Damn close...I looked over as my glance froze on a grenade exploding on the sand roads knocking over a lamp post...
    I grabbed my lungs and coughed, "son, we gotta run across..now while the sun is lost..."
    The thick dust feels like some kind of aired gas...this reality I'm scared to grasp...
    Runnin across this prepared path and hard gravel that cuts like bear traps...
    We saw a group of marines, not far away from us...gettin to them is dangerous, jumpin over these graves and such..
    The clouds are a dark grimson grey...headin to where our mission lays...
    Runnin as the ground rips up mist and sprays from the bullets that are missin strays and ricochetes...
    I grabbed his hand, as my son asks sadly, " u think we'll make it?" While dippin threw these back alleys..
    "I do my son, the Americans already freed us"...*click* that's when a claymore exploded right inbetween us..

    *I crawled to my son*

    "Daddy...I think gods gonna take me now...to an astounding place.."
    I turned around to say...as his eyes slowly shut..and a tear rolled down his face..
    "Son, please get up, Im not sayin goodbye today"....I picked him up, and walked straight out to the highway...

    "I love u..."

    6. Predictions –


    Championship
    1. MK(3-0)
    2. Scrolls(3-0)

    Prediction – This should be an awesome match. Both writers are stellar and have great style and mechanics. I believe that this match can go either way but I think MK will win this matchup 4-3

    #1 Contenders
    3. Shadow(2-1)
    4. Cigma(1-2)

    Prediction – This is a rematch of week one. The last time Shadow got the better of Cigma but this time, Cigma is looking to pull off a victory. I believe he will do so, 3-2.


    5. Shogun(1-0)
    6. Calibre(2-1)

    Prediction – Last week Sho was no showed but posted a great verse while Calibre lost his match as well. I think that Sho will win this matchup 4-2.

    7. nO gOoD!(1-2)
    8. T.a.C(1-2)

    Prediction – I believe this matchup can go either way and t.a.c continues to improve. I think that NG will get his swag back to be T.a.C 4-2.


    9. Mad Orphan(0-1)
    10. Krisp(0-0)

    Prediction – This should be interesting and I don’t know much about Krisp. So if he shows, I think Mad will win this 4-2.

    11. Lyricalpriest(0-0)
    12. MC4Sight(0-0)
    13. Muti(0-0)
    Prediction – This should be interesting but I don’t know how any of these writers will do in this matchup but if all three show, I think MC4 will win it 4-1-1.

    8. RM Newspaper Article -
    8a. Rumors – There was a rumor going around that Scrolls has been working for the government to help fight terrorism. Scrolls is a young guy and seemed to be very valuable to the government. During an intense internet probe on a known terrorist, Scrolls was asked to look for the place where he found the terrorist. When doing so, this is what happened.
    [​IMG]

    Yea, this pretty much confirms that Scrolls has a serious problem.

    8b. Sports – There were a lot of weird and upsetting games from last week and I finished with a 9-7 record. Green Bay Packers running back, Ryan Grant is out for the season and NO Saints RB Reggie Bush has decided to forfeit his Heisman trophy. Here are my predictions this week.
    GB over Buf
    Bal over Cin
    Ten over Pit
    Dal over Chi
    Phi over Det
    Car over TB
    ATL over Ari
    KC over Cle
    Min over Mia
    Den over Sea
    Oak over Stl
    Hou over Was
    SD over Jac
    NE over NYJ
    IND over NYG
    NO over SF

    8E. Word/Phrase of the Week – Redundant Retard

    9. Conclusion – Thank you to everyone who showed up this week to their match ups. I would like to stress again that it is nice seeing the amount of improvement from each and every member of the league. Now, I would like to see voting get a little bit better with each voter dropping at least 2 lines worth of feedback. This will help the writer improve so much more. Also, if you feel like the matchup was a tie, it would be appreciated if you could just pick one or the other even if it is decided by a flip of a coin. Thank you everyone for reading and good luck on your matches this week.
