    2. Recap

    This week, there were a lot of close match-ups and a couple no shows. Let’s see how things went this week.

    Nique – smh

    oNeRiC – I will say that you have improved the most this week and this verse was very well done. I was surprised on how you took this picture and made it an enjoyable read. The start of your verse had a magical, inspiring read to it and it cared out throughout your verse. Your rhymes were good and the flow was good. I would suggest that next time to add commas to your verse to help had emphasis and pausing when you want it and not when the reader thinks it is. A very impressive verse from you and I really look forward to your verse next week. Well done sir, well done.

    T.a.C. vs Redeemed – T.a.C went up against Redeemed this week and this proved to be a close match. Last time these two faced each other, T.a.C came out the match the victor. This time proved to be slightly more difficult to judge. T.a.C tried to take a horrible movie concept and put a good spin on it. Personally, I didn’t think it worked out to well but some of the other reader thought it did. Redeemed had a good story but had issues tying the story together. Both were evenly matched in the mechanics and this proved to be how this match-up would end, in a tie.

    ShadowWarriorfs vs Urizen – This match-up was good and both writers wrote pretty well. Shadow and Urizen were both coming off ties and were seeking the win this week. The readers thought that both verses were good but in the end felt Shadow developed a better verse. Urizen’s verse lacked good rhyming and story development. In the end, Shadow won this match-up, 2-1.

    MordridDeschain vs Got Life? – This match-up has a lot of potential and ended up being the battle of the week. MD was a victim of adding/removing words from his verse that were/were not always needed. I felt that the story was kind of dull but all the other readers loved the story. GL’s verse was pretty good and consistent. The flow was good and the rhymes were nice. MD and GL are pretty evenly matched here and this match-up came down to which story the readers liked more. In the end, the readers thought GL was the better writer as he picks up the 4-1 victory.

    Memento vs. icon – Ok this match-up ended up with Memento getting the no show win but I decided to do this match-up as if both showed. Both writers posted a great verse. Memento’s verse had a nice rhyme to it and story was good however the line breaks and the lack of emotion hurt this verse. Icon’s verse had a great story but the weird characters and stuff through off his verse. The positive thing about this verse was the story progressed well. Hopefully there will be a rematch here in the future where people can actually vote and determine a rightful winner.

    The Roots Go Deep

    Deep in the the depths...a birth full of toil
    problems buried down in the dirt and the soil
    roots spread and dig...unaware they expand
    trying to draw nutrients in the most barren of lands
    The tree of society lacks any grace
    grown crooked on a hill about to snap at it's base
    trapped with no space...angle or path
    branches twists desperately in a tangle then snap
    look at the trunk...it's grown older an massive
    the roots hold it up like the shoulders of Atlas
    the tree's full of lies but the truth is big
    millionaire leafs watch from their exclusive twigs
    fly free in the wind...their slumber is sound
    there's very little freedom when your under the ground
    glory or fame...don't let it break it your heart
    because every little root has to play it's part
    There's corrupted rot eating into the core
    many roots fight back feeding into the war
    we've been here before...tell me where are heading
    a blight's grown on the bark and a disease is spreading
    the roots hold it all up...our doom is at hand
    because now we're running out...of room to expand
    no one cares about the roots...who hope to be free
    going unnoticed...yet make up most of the tree
    the seasons come and go
    it's hopeless you see...all of bliss is spent
    first we had morality's Fall ..now Winters discontent
    waiting to Spring back...but Summer never came
    the worlds full of hard ways...some will never change
    This goes out to the roots...no one is free
    we struggle all our life...back bone of the tree
    no fame and glitz.. no change in the pits
    just dirt and grim...keep praying for bliss
    and paying our bit...it never ends and is long
    the roots see no light...no amends to their wrongs
    always stepped on...always slept on
    searching for hope...the reach crept long
    the roots go deep...a major part of the hole
    forget the superficial...their the heart and the soul
    the working class root...just trying to live
    slaving away all day to provide for his kids
    poor destitute roots...who get no respect
    forgotten and lost living loan to check
    no one roots for a root...scorned and forgotten
    it's hard it make it up when you're born at bottom
    the roots are us, the poor and down trodden
    the world goes on.. it's dark and is cruel
    and if the trunk falls down then we start up anew​



    I wish you could see Little Rosalie,
    Youthful; she’d laugh uncontrollably,
    She was the one others yearned to be,
    A phoenix, fiery…proud and free,
    And melancholy-
    Was never meant for she,
    Eyes wide open…
    To the whole world there is to see,
    Sitting at Starbucks drinking her tea,
    Lost in a novel…
    “The War at Home”…
    A calamity within a family,
    And god fucking damn it she-
    Read it so fucking happily…

    To her that mad house was a joke,
    How the sputtering father would choke-
    Upon saliva, while stricken with rage,
    With each flick of the page…
    She’d giggle and smile in utter denial,
    That a happy home could ever rile-
    And ruffle so many loving feathers,
    Upon a couch bound in warming leathers,
    These problems were never hers,
    They were just caricatures-
    Which she found un-relatable-
    To her, it was a world debatable…

    She’d debate the reality of it all,
    As the father drags his girl down the hall-
    By her perfect blonde pony tail,
    Breaking her pride, she’s alone and frail,
    The humiliating pain…
    Windows pelted by debilitating rain,
    And Rosalie reads with no disdain,
    Confused a bit, but she can’t attain-
    The type of emotion you’d expect by now,
    Similarities to reality, but how?

    She just never believed in the hell,
    Envisioned from an eight by ten cell,
    Written in her father’s study,
    A tale so cold, so awfully bloody,
    Which told of her father’s desire,
    To taste little Rosalie’s fire…
    Setting her burning bush ablaze,
    Her mind lost in a vicious maze,
    Encouraging her to guzzle mayonnaise,
    Because in under thirty days…
    Rosalie would be…

    Attractive no longer,
    Dad would no longer wrong her,
    Left alone with the screams,
    Long lost are her dreams…yet it seems,
    That she’s still in a happy place,
    As she desperately tries to keep face,
    Being that it’s so hard to explain,
    That she was raped; dancing in the rain,
    By a father she thought cared,
    After he wrote a novel which he shared-
    Only with her,
    Revealing his plot; it’s now just a blur,
    Poor innocent her…
    She never knew to seek protection
    Yet the truth now lies in her eyes reflection,
    She now understands the tragedy,
    And that my friends, is sad to see.​

    4. No Show Shine



    Magic. That's how tranquility hits ya when you're in the mix
    Fast sensations sending new ability through my fingertips
    I sit down on the black stool transfixed with wavy oceans
    The surface reflects and lets my body twist with the motion
    A trembling opener results in sending trills through the audience
    The moment has come now for the bass with two octave shifts
    Dropping keys and adding decibels i grasp hold of the opportunity
    To look away from the music and put my loved ones under scrutiny
    Then with a destiny so gruesome I switch the chords to sus 4
    Little did I see a lump in the curtains was becoming mature
    Obscure shoes, barely visible but the hues reflecting decor
    A pain through my side, perhaps it was fate on this night
    I panicked in stride, while keeping to the music I tried
    But that is when I saw the gun creeping in the closest mirror
    Close enough away that the assassin had no chance for error
    I'm feeling the fear, jump, over the rails into chaos
    Waving and yelling ensued, I feel something straight glossed
    Not knowing what it is I prepare to throw it behind me
    But when I turned down my girlfriend was rioting
    I watched her pull the fire alarm after she turned off the lights
    She might have saved me but now I don't know where to fight
    I hold on to the.. whatever it is, but I'm not sure I'm safe
    And even worse I remember the last look on my girlfriends face!
    I start to force my way over people lying perhaps in heart arrest
    Sure I could stop but I'm not a doctor so I persist
    I feel wavy hair and ask this girl if her name is correct
    The lights come on and with a horrible memory I'm met
    She is no where to be found, but this one has a revolver
    When I was shot, I felt everything become calmer
    I loosened my grip on reality, even the pain of intimacy
    I heard a wail in the background, I saw revenge in deed
    Then I heard kind words from a bloody mess
    My loving's best, she put me trance with her prayer
    I wish i could stay here to let you know where
    I went, but to do that I'd have to stay and be a ghost
    And I am not afraid of the light so, good luck folks
    If I can, I will come back, and tie in the story
    Take care, and one more thing: Enjoy the morning

    5. Matchups

    C. Memento 5-0
    2. Got Life? 3-0

    Prediction – Memento is coming off of a no show win again icon and is facing a tough opponent in GL. This looks to be an interesting match-up but in past weeks, Memento has been slacking with the quality of his verses. He will need to pick this up if he wants to beat GL and retain his title. This week I have GL winning 3-2 over Memento.

    3. ShadowWarriorfs 17-13
    4. Redeemed 2-0

    Prediction – This week in the number one contenders match, Shadow goes up against Redeemed who is coming off a tie against T.a.C. Redeemed has climbed into this match slowly and could pose a threat to Shadow if he decides to show up. This week I think Redeemed will take the 2-1 victory.

    5. oNeiRiC 3-4
    6. Nique... 1-0

    Prediction – oNe is coming off a no show win and looks to get a victory against this weeks newest member Nique. Nique appears to have been in the league for a while now and seems to have talent. This is hard to call because I haven’t seen any of her writings. So until then, I will give oNe the nod here in a 3-2 victory.

    7. MordridDeschain 2-1
    8. Urizen 6-5

    Prediction – MD is coming off a lose to GL and could’ve had a better showing if he had corrected a couple minor details in his verse. Urizen is coming off a lose to shadow and wants to get back into his winning ways. This week I believe MD and Urizen will dust them selves off and put up a good showing. However, MD will win this match-up in a 4-1 victory.

    9. profit55 0-3
    10. .:pain:. 0-0

    Prediction – First, I’d like to welcome back Pain and Profit to the league. Now then, these two have very different styles of writing and this should be an interesting match-up. However, profit has show improvement in the past, I believe Pain will take this match-up in a 3-0 victory.

    11. Scatterboxx 0-0
    12. Xiej 0-0
    13. The_K3 0-0

    Prediction – This will be an interesting match-up. Welcome back K3 and Scatterboxx into the league. That being said, I believe Xiej will no show. I’m on the fence with Scatter no showing but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt here. I believe that K3 will knock the rust off and come out of this match up with a 3-1 victory.

    8. T.a.C-tical Interviews – This week T.a.C interviewed the newcomer Nique. Let’s see how that went.

    T.a.C: so where did you come up with the name Nique...?
    Nique…: It's apart of my first name lol. I never really cared about developing a "rap' name//
    T.a.C: how do you pronounce it? like nicki?
    Nique…: LOL, Nique = Neek
    T.a.C: haha oh damn, i wasnt even close
    Nique…: Lol yea I don't know where you got Nicki from
    T.a.C: to be honest, neither do i, lmao.
    T.a.C: im jus gonna ask the next question before i make myself look even more stupid
    Nique…: lmao
    T.a.C: so what is something no one on this site knows about you?
    Nique…: Um. I graduated from Syracuse University Magna Cum Laude in May?
    T.a.C: oh wow. thats cool
    T.a.C: who is your favorite artist?
    Nique…: Nasir Jones = )
    T.a.C: very good choice
    Nique…: Yea, he's a genius with the pend..
    Nique…: Or pen rather
    T.a.C: oh yes. i personally think hes better than jay (ima get shit for that on rm)
    Nique…: I AGREE. You are automatically awesome.
    Nique…: I get into RM arguments about it all the time
    T.a.C: lmao. but i gotta say eminem > all. hope i didnt lose my awesomeness
    Nique…: Well, I think Nas > Eminem, but Eminem is in my top five
    Nique…: although I did not really like relapse yuck
    T.a.C: lol, are you one of the people who hates the voices he was doing?
    Nique…: Nah, I just didn't think the music was up to par this last album tbh
    T.a.C: lol do you rank it above encore?
    Nique…: Lol, hmm now that I think about it
    Nique…: Maybe
    T.a.C: lmao
    T.a.C: so does nas inspire you most to write?
    Nique…: Yes, he was the reason I began writing honestly. When I really started to get into Hip Hop I was in the 8th grade. And my cousin burned some Nas albums for me and I've been in love ever since. His lyricism and content is incredibly
    T.a.C: i cant argue with that
    T.a.C: so im guessin illmatic or stillmatic is going to be your favorite cd of all time?
    Nique…:): All time? Yikes. I don't even think I have an all time, but I love stillmatic and illmatic. Stillmatic came out when I was 14 and I started writing heavily then.
    T.a.Clmao, both were great cds
    T.a.C what do you think was the best album out this year?
    Nique…: came out this year? Lol. BP3, Loso's Way um I cannot recall many. Lupe's Enemy of the State mixtape that just came out. Wiz Khalifa's Flight School. Wale's Attention Deficit
    T.a.C: damn, never got Loso's Way as an answer before
    T.a.C: that was a great cd
    Nique…: Yea Fabo was spittin on there. I'm really anti-Jay Z, but I actually liked BP3
    T.a.C: it had some nice tracks
    Nique…: Yea
    T.a.C: although if i hear alicia keys singing about new york one more time im going to rip my hair out
    Nique…: Yea, I don't even listen to that song when I listen to the album lol.
    Nique…: So Ambitious, Real As It Gets, Thank You, On To The Next One are my shit
    T.a.C: real as it gets is sick as hell
    Nique…: Yea I love Jeezy tbh. Just love the entire song.
    T.a.C: Jeezy is pretty sick
    Nique…: Yea respect ppl for what they offer if they perfect it. And Jeezy perfected trap music
    T.a.C: him and T.I (if you even count him) are the only ones i can stand
    Nique…: Lol
    Nique…: Well, I'm from Atlanta, so I tolerate a lot of them, but yea T.I's a beast he doesn't really count. You can't stand Ludacris? Arguably the best delivery ever. Scarface?
    T.a.C: lol i meant trap shit like, t.i, gucci, jeezy, shawty lo
    T.a.C: all them
    T.a.C: i love luda
    T.a.C: no homo
    Nique…: OoOoO yea Shawty Lo is garbage
    Nique…: Gucci I can't listen to an entire album by him
    T.a.C: OJ's ad libs sounds like hes being ass raped
    Nique…: lmaooo
    T.a.C: so is there any genre youre embarassed to admit you like?
    Nique…: Um no? I'm actually pretty boring tbh. I'm a Hip Hop and RnB lover strictly, but I do like Maroon 5 Nickleback (love them) King of Leon Kelly Clarkson Christina Aguilera Justin Timberlake etc etc
    T.a.C: Timberlake?! =/ this interviews over
    Nique…: LOL he's awesome
    T.a.C lmfao
    T.a.C: so what genre do you hate?
    Nique…: Country
    Nique…: Lol
    T.a.C: seems to be everyones answer
    Nique…: lol
    T.a.C: alright so lets get to talkin about the league
    T.a.C: let us know some of your history in the league
    Nique…:): Well, I started in the RSTL as a pretty horrible writer. Around the time of Erykah Caine, Tha Talent, Rikoshay, Dic, Vern, Edward Lake, Richard Corey. I just keep practicing and facing incredible talent and I began to get better.
    Nique…: I eventually won 2 titles and I've only loss 6 times in this league and I had the opportunity to face and beat the greatest writer in the RSTL imo (Vernacular).
    T.a.C: damn. only 6 losses? shit
    Nique…:): Yea, I've loss 8 total in all leagues combined on other sites, but I just haven't had the opportunity to stay in the league for like 40 consecutive weeks. I just be too busy.
    Nique…: It's in the Archives that Tali made in the grudges and tournaments section
    T.a.C: wow, thats really impressive.
    T.a.C: so what is your opinion on the league after your first week back?
    Nique…: Um, it could be better lol, but it's good that people are still taking time out of their busy lives to keep it around. I'm surprised it is still around tbh
    T.a.C: lol thought it woulda died out by now?
    Nique…: Yea definitely
    T.a.C: lol there were a few times i thought the plug was gonna get pulled on it
    Nique…: Yea me too I wasn't expecting the league to be alive
    T.a.C: what are areas you think need to be improved?
    Nique…: More activity to be honest that's it
    Nique…: With more people equals better voting better verses ect ect
    T.a.C: true.

    T.a.C: who do you think are the top 3 writers in the league? yourself excluded
    Nique…:, iCon if he would've Mordrid and Got Life by default
    T.a.C: lol im surprised you gave GL? the nod
    T.a.C: whatsup with the beef between you and him?
    T.a.C: and also can you tell us about this et of balls you apparently have?
    Nique…: I said by default, but I don't think he is as good as he should be tbh. He's been so active the past like 5 years.
    Nique…: I haven't written in like 8 months. And our beef stems from past RSTL stints and I beat him for one of my titles
    Nique…: He's just a cheater/liar and biased as hell. Never respected his lack of skill or his personality, so everytime I enter the league I'd like to remind him how bad he is because he was subpar when the top tier writers were in the league. I'm not sure about the whole boy situation. Probably because of my brash, bold, and up front personality. I don't act like most females on the internet. They usually turn into internet hoes AIMing boys all night. I just sign on to write and to win and to get better.
    T.a.C: fair enough. lol. seems like everyones got some form of a beef with him.
    T.a.C: so jus to clarify for everyone...are you jook? lol
    Nique…: LOL, can't you do IP checks. I am not Jook. I've known Jook forever though. We used to be very cool, then we beefed, now we're cool again. Shout out to Capone! Lol, nah man. We don't even write alike. You can read our verses. I don't have an alias. He should sign into the league.
    Nique…: Got Life is only saying that because I put him on blast about the whole taking people's verses and using them on other sites, which is true.
    T.a.C: lmao, i figured. you dont seem to act like jook. and lmao, he used other peoples verses?
    Nique…: Yes, before he came to RSTL. He admitted it at one point IDK what happened.
    T.a.C: lmao. thats fuckin hilarious.
    T.a.C: so who in the league do you most wanna face? im assuming either gl? or pain
    Nique…:): Lol, yea it doesn't matter. I'm just trying to force myself to write again. I'd prefer iCon though. He is an alias.
    T.a.C: lol yeah. i need to run the ip on him
    Nique…: Lol, I mean it doesn't matter his writing is just familiar
    T.a.C: for sure.
    T.a.C: so is there any last things you wanna say?
    Nique…: Um, good luck to everyone in the league. Don't be afraid to speak your mind and be honest. Work hard, writer harder. Ummm, lol. That's it = )
    T.a.C: good shit. finally, what is a quote or motto you live by?
    Nique…: Hate me or love me..either way it's an obsession

    9. Grinds My Gears – You know what really grinds my gears, watching the Dallas Cowboys play football. I mean seriously, how can a team have ten days to prepare and still not be prepared? The coaching staff is full of morons and Jerry Jones is a fool. This team is poorly coached and it shows on their football play. Every week, it’s the same garbage. You would think the coaching would work on fundamentals such as tackling, watching the football, holding on to the football, etc. This goes to show you that regardless of the talent on a team, coaching will always negate it. If Jerry Jones really wants to win a playoff game, he needs to fire his head coach and offensive coordinator and bring in someone who can motivate this team and teach them fundamentals of football. This is what really grinds me gears.

    10. Conclusion – This was a very good week for match-ups, not so much for voting. I’m think next week I will start giving shout outs to people for having the best verse, the best voter and the biggest faggot. I am open to other suggestion and hope more people get more involved in the league because the league will only be as good as you idiots make it :-D. Good luck to everyone this week and see you guys in the next edition of the mag. Ok so I changed my mind about the awards and decided to do them this week.

    Awards for week 36

    Best Verse goes to………oNeRiC


    Best Voter goes to……..Nique


    Biggest Faggot goes to…Got Life?


    Let’s give a big Woot to the award winners for Week 36

    No, seriously, I dont post from an iPhone, only the very last digits of my IP change and they move up one number consecutively each time I access the web so it's always clear that it's me. I dont try to hide it, I dont need to, and I've given the admin permission countless times to check against me and confirm or deny what i'm saying is correct.

    Yesterday this kid was Dic, today he's me? Your spidersense is off, Peter. You've been around too long...

    Honestly, I believe it's Baron Mynd too. Either Baron Mynd or Pent Up. I was going to say Riko, but he doesn't have any blemishes in the flow category, but it definitely looks like BM..

    What tournament did Pent say he was finishing up at before he came back over here? That's got to be done by now.

    So it's probably him, although Baron did come out of no where when his name was mentioned. Not that I care. Funny though.

    oh and there was no way my verse was the best, best improvement maybe

    Icon completely blazed it in my opinion and the entire contendership match was unbelievable.

    But I do appreciate the love.

    Man I saw this awesome poetry thing last night. i was the only white person there, which was kind of cool, and damn. I felt like I was in an underground event with nothing but cool people. Anyone near new orleans? U got to come check this out next time.

    Writing style screams you.

    Posting from Mobile Device screams you.

    You perpetually hanging around and iCon acting like a girl screams you.

    e:/ and I owe you a punch to the uterus.
