    I. Week in Review

    The Week in Review
    by Annihilation(aka Claushouse)

    Two weeks of exciting Championship-calibre Title match's, spearheaded by belt-holder Anaphora (9-2), were put to rest this week by the very man who re-instilled some consistency into the top-tier battle, as Richard Corey (44-9) took his 4th title by no-show, then promptly signed out due to time constraints. Corey had previously toppled Tali Rodriguez's (32-5) reign as champ in late 2005, ending the longest title defense streak in RSTL history. Anaphora loses his second Championship match vs. Richard Corey, who had gotten the best of him in 2004. All this comes after taking the title from Runna DaMille (17-4) and successfully holding off Annihilation (7-2) last week. The belt has been passed around more times than Paris Hilton lately, as it is the 3rd no-show exchange in 5 weeks. Prior to this, there have been two, yes two, new champions crowned on no-show victory's between mid-2003 and the end of 2005, a 2300% increase. Go Team!

    Hype-guru Tekneek (63-22) might want to avoid tall metal objects, as Strike2 (7-0) struck like lightning, keeping his winning streak alive and shutting his opponent out, well, 7-0. He still has a long way to go if he hopes to match the RSTL's longest perfect record streaks, as he lies 11 back of Rikoshay's 18-0, 9 short of Infinite Truth's 16-0, and 2 behind Claushouse, JOOK and Thaumaturge's 9-0 starts. Should he take the Championship next week, however, it would be the 3rd best shot up to the title (at 8-0), as all three emcees at 9-0 failed to claim the belt during their runs.

    Mr. Lucky Number 7 (Strike) will go up against veteran Vigil (11-6) in this week's Championship bout, after downing a hot Lost Prophet (10-4) 5-1. Don't let the votes fool you, though, as it was a close battle, and voters had a tough time edging it out. This will be Vigil's second trip to the big show, having fallen to Tali in 2005.

    Next week's Contendership will pit beefing emcee's Annihilation (7-2) and Got Life? (9-6), as both used last week's Magazine as an outlet for their frustrations. Got Life? referred to his opponent as "overrated", while Annihilation complained about Pain's voting record, claiming his affection towards his 'Double Entendre' partner(Got Life?) "borders on fellatio". The beef has since moved past Pain/Ninja Kid and onto GL, and now both RSTLers have a chance to get at each others throats in the arena. Rumors, however, indicate that, regardless of circumstance, the PR battle will continue this week.

    Bickering aside, their trips to the Contendership differed greatly, with Annihilation avenging himself, defeating Pain (10-7) 6-2, while Got Life?, in another stroke of good fortune, took the W from Malosovich (37-18), despite narrowly losing the match as the league moderator failed to cast a single vote, similar to his opponent last week. Got Luck?

    Despite a valiant effort, Tha DQ (2-1) suffered her first loss to returning textee Erykah Caine (3-0), as she swept her opponent to move into 5th seed. I Dunnno (6-3) served Pent uP (5-5) his 3rd loss in a row, giving him a .500 record. I Dunnno went on a voting spree this week, voting 4 times... in the same battle! (One for every 'n' in his name). Way to go, champ! Both I Dunnno and Asian Hoes failed to cast more than a single vote, following the trend of Malosovich, Pain, Anaphora, Richard Corey, -AC3- and Living hell, effectively costing the league 30 votes over 7 battles, or about 4 votes per battle.

    In spectacular fashion, Kryptical (3-0) and Nell (3-0) tied each other for the second week straight, and will face each other for an unprecedented third week in a row! These guys keep engaging themselves, leaving many to wonder: when's the wedding? Elsewhere, five-time Chamption Runna DaMille (17-4) returns to action against up-and-coming Urizen (2-0), who, despite sweeping Crosse (2-1) last week, will soon know the pain of childbirth. Best of luck!

    Headless Verseman (1-0), on the other hand, was posting more like Hideless Verseman, as the on-and-off RSTLer, better known for his audio and RBL work, had trouble hiding his votes in his first week back. He took a no-show win and will faceoff against Atreyou (2-0).

    In other news, Tekneek made a statement promising that he will utter neither a word, remark or comment, nor grant an interview, until he wins his 3rd championship, citing he wants the belt "in the worst pay possible." Sounds like a porno I once rented.
    And that in the week in review.

    II. Top 20 Breakdown (Strike)

    20. Soldja J Vs 19. Killeffect
    double no show bishes
    Winner: no one

    18. Urizen vs 17. Crosse
    Didn't expect this to be such a nice match… I kinda skipped it and again due to me not replying Im missin the votes…ok skimming trough both verses… I noticed the nice flow and vocab on both parts…Crosse however tho was pressed for time and dropped a really short verse wich in the end jus didn't cut it apparently.. because cross won
    Winner: Cross

    16. Kryptikal vs 15. Nell
    Hmm I have to excuse myself to both competitors.. this was a quick vote for me.. but rereading this battle for mag purposes I read other peoples votes.. and see I've missed a lot of the finer things rushin trough it.. with that said tho.. matches don't come closer then this.. it was a tie… Krypt had better mechanics as in writing… Nell had some very nice ideas and concepts in there and apparently a better story then I thought… funny thing is yer getting a rematch good luck homeys.. Ill be sure to pay more attention this week
    Winner: Tie

    14. Ashen Horse vs 13. I dunno
    Ashen is one of the most skilled writers in rstl.. I skimmed trough the verse as I cant read each one of em totally but the wordplay rhymeschemes flow is all off the chains… I think his strength is more in topically written pieces tho.. there is no real coherent story line as far as I could tell and more like a thought and a conclusion… really nice.. 'I dunno' however aint no joke neither a very smoothe natural feel… and I am really sorry I forgot to reply to see what the rest of you who totally read the battle thought… However.. when Pent tallied votes there was one winner congratulations.
    Winner: I dunno

    12. Eryka Caine vs 11. Tha DQ
    Well no major surprises here… except maybe that someone finally had the guts to show against miss Caine. DQ however was jus outclassed as miss Caine is just a more experienced more polished writer… Nice showin by both keep it going ladies
    Winner: Eryka Caine


    10. Pain vs 9. Annihilation
    A really nice match.. pain had a very fresh idea.. hey why don't I do something related to real life.. and it hit in a people were everyone kinda expected claus to win by a blow out.. including me… this came down really close…but claus took it on account of a little more class and jus more writing skills.. however.. to me pain had one of the most enjoyable verses this week
    Winner: Anni

    8. Malosevic vs 7. Got Life?[/b]
    well theres a lot that can be said about yer momma… that being malosevic…(no pun intended) but hes a man of his principles.. sorta…every thread he closes he reminds people of voting.. then he doesn't… but he won the battle…BUT bein the man he is he gave the win up and I have to give him some props for not bein a total hypocrite about it as some would.
    Winner: RSTL

    6. Vigil vs 5. Lost Prophet
    A pretty tight runned match here this one wich shows the details count so much more these days… both were written very well and the voting basicly went like this.. both were so equal but I enjoyed Vigil slightly more…this match was one of details and although the outcome was almost unanimous the difference was really really small. LP's verse deserved more.. jus not in this match
    Winner: Vigil




    3. Strike vs 4. Tekneek
    Well I cant really say too much about it besides good job tek nice a nice match up had me sweatin for a sec but in the end I had it so until next time homey.. and ow yeah due to Corey signin out Im fill in champ :
    Winner: Strike


    2. Richard Corey vs 1. Anaphora
    This was a reaaal let down 2 very different styles were goin to duke it out.. both incredible in their own right… I was actually lookin forwards to see wich way the votes were gonna go in a match like this… neither had time to write a decent verse tho.. and Corey saw ana wasn't goin to be here so he took the title with a humorous little no show verse… lucky for me tho he signed out as well..
    Winner: Corey

    III. More Shit Talking From Pain & Got Life?


    E Got Life: arite dude you ready to get at these clowns for round 2?

    JKeeps616: oh yes, got my miller high life cracked and my new-p spark, I'm ready to go

    E Got Life: lets break it down battle by battle and then give honorable mentions to everyone, good and bad

    JKeeps616: ok ok

    E Got Life: so what'd you think of this champ match or lack there of?

    JKeeps616: lmao, to be honest, I think ana just got shook, didn't wanna say someone actually beat em, so that when someone asks, he'll be like "rc didn't technically beat me, I know showed" but w/e, I fuckin hate no shows

    E Got Life: haha...yea I got you, but seriously...I don't even know man...dude is a solid writer and I was lookin foward to the battle...then ana no-shows, rc posts a no-show verse that my doberman could write and signs out and now strike and vigil are gonna duel it out for a belt from the looks of things

    JKeeps616: damn, I didn't know RC signed out, people view the champ belt as like a fuckin' virgin, once you got it once, ain't really worth keepin/gettin again. vigil's gettin that belt next week btw

    E Got Life: lol yea RC technically didn't even win. he didn't care to vote on 4 battles. haha yea...I dunno don't sleep on strike. he had a real cool verse this week. but yea my money says it's Vigil's battle to lose

    JKeeps616: yea strikes dope, vigils got the same hunger as me though, a "fuck a record, read my verse" type attitude about this shit

    E Got Life: i'm more of a...you owe me a paycheck for having to expand your mind to creativity each week and let me tell ya...public education is shitty pay

    JKeeps616: lmfao, word, I hear that

    E Got Life: so how bout tek vs strike in the contender match?

    JKeeps616: tek actually surprised me this week, all the shit I talk about 'em back fired, his verse was pretty dope, straitfoward, but still dope, he was solid as fuck, def not what I expected, strike had an illy scheme though, and basically just outwrote him this week, this was one of the better strike verses I've ever seen though, and lol at tek tryin' to do damage control in the thread, homie needs to learn to lose and walk away

    E Got Life: yea...that little speach at the end was the same shit we were laughin about last week, but he surprised me too...although he just couldn't pull it out...but seriously...some people were acting like that bit at the end by strike was the dopest shit ever written or something...I mean it was cool...but it's not on that "let me suck your dick level" that claus brought it to...more on claus later though lol

    JKeeps616: lol yea, we'll get em eventually

    E Got Life: what you think of vigil and lost prophet though

    JKeeps616: match of the week IMO, lost prophets opening was fuckin' dope, everything was damn near perfect, as it went along however, the fundamentals faltered a bit, scheme and flow got kinda choppy, that's why Vigil won IMO, he was more consistent through his whole verse, his shit was on point, coulda gone either way IMO, like I said, match of the week

    E Got Life: i'll grant you that, but lp's piece had me thinkin amityville horror type bit a lil to much, but I think my major issue was the fact that I couldn't really get a great understanding of the characters beyond some background in his piece...but yea...it was a good battle and I def think both of these guys are not to be slept on...

    JKeeps616: word I was gonna say that too, I get high and forget to say shit sometimes though

    E Got Life: haha so yea...next up is me and malo...or as I'd like to refer to it as the 3 ring circus

    JKeeps616: lmao, well lemme start off by sayin that this was the best rhyme scheme/flow I've seen from you, that shit made it a very smoothe and enjoyable read, you developed your shit well, and it was even more coherent then usual, malo's shit was dope, it was just too short, he should developed his plot line more, kinda pissed me off, it coulda been much better IMO, it was still good, but not good enough to win

    JKeeps616: of course, you gotta lemme know what you think of your own battle

    E Got Life: haha wow...where to begin...I guess lets start with the verses in order of posting. mine started out if you remember kind of somber...trying to get that feeling with the drowing nectar, anchoring twine bits as imagery to allow for the end where it came together and I talked about dieing alone cause that was my characters prison. it wasn't the cell...he was an og...prison wasn't shit...it was the prison of being fated to live such a life and it talked about the people tryin to take over his shit with him gone and how they are imprisoned into the concepts of his life, but it's not them because they want respect but never earned it (King Lear) reference.

    JKeeps616: oh shit didn't even notice that

    E Got Life: and the Ned Divine reference in that he earned everything (won the lotto what have you) and now they trying to profit off it. the fact that he stared down the mother of the girl he killed in court is just adding to who the character is. he's just cold and cut throat. beyond that I don't think I could have spelled this out more to people. Malo's piece was cool too I think there were one or two awkward feeling lines but I liked that more peaceful and heartfelt aspect of his writing, although I think he didn't go in depth enough to get at me

    JKeeps616: what'd you think of the voting involved?

    E Got Life: now as far as the voting goes...oh man...here comes the circus

    JKeeps616: lol

    E Got Life: teks vote was w/e...nothing special there...he tends to call it how he sees it and he makes cute speaches...can't hate on him for that...erykah's vote cracked me up cause she told me not to focus on rhyming so much which showed how unfamiliar with me she is...and headless is a whore for not using hidden content cause he was actin like he was king up in here and dude ain't even read the rules...smh

    JKeeps616: lmao yea, I don't really know headless, but homies got a noggin that would topple the fuckin pyramids

    E Got Life: then urizen is just off his fucking rocker with nonsense....let me quote him for a second "but then all of a sudden I found myself in another piece this was kinda frustrating for me and the end I really didnt like"..."but all in all it was a dope piece just the transitions in my opinion could have been better but I did like it tho"...wtf is this dude on...and where did my character go to sleep...whereas apparently malo's verse was "flawless" and "had a dope topic choice"

    E Got Life: that's the kind of shit that makes me wonder why certain people weren't aborted after their sonograms

    JKeeps616: lmao, cuz they mom's prolly couldn't afford one. homie prolly survived his trashcan expedition

    E Got Life: i dunnno is another fuckin character too....look what homie wrote..."There was a lot of detailing for the emotions of your victim I guess, that wasn't made clear either. Some of that part was nice with the description of her fears and how she's drowning them. The character development was ok at points as he's portrayed as an obsessed rapist, but as a story, it needs more story details, which it didn't have much of."...first off where the fuck am I ever talking about the victim...the victim just gives the story a reason for the og to go to jail and for the jealous ass fakes to try and hustle in his absence...she's not in the storyline in any other way....fuck her emotions...dude is pulling for the fucking stars...and rapist?...wtf...where did obsessed rapist come from...I think my man here was watching some angry porn and zoned out from the battle and when he woke up he just jotted a random vote...but maybe he's just dumb cause he didn't get that malo was talking bout a father daughter relationship till the end either...and where in the hell did he see malo's verse about to get "grewsome"....yea...ding ding ding...this man has an IQ that's maybe a shred over 70. oh and then there's my favorite which i'ma just show you the convo I had with claus about it cause I don't wanna type all that up again

    JKeeps616: iight let's see it

    E Got Life: E Got Life: are you really that afraid of facing me

    claushouse69: why would i be afraid of facing you. I’ve lost to 2 people in my life and i voted a hot vigil into the last contendership i was in a few weeks ago because no one had the balls to vote and you ASKED me to vote on your battle.

    E Got Life: i'm just havin trouble believin that you're that out of focus that you completely missed those things that you said were "confusing"

    claushouse69: i can't believe you question my credibility when you constantly vote against me and think Pain took me when my battle is 6-2. Yeah i had trouble figuring out later in the verse who you were talking about when you mention the mother

    E Got Life: the mother gets a haunting glare and that's it. she's never mentioned again

    claushouse69: the mother of the woman who has a kid who's murdered?

    E Got Life: what? where the fuck do you see a character like that. the only people even mentioned are the main guy (the og), the girl he killed, the girl's mother

    claushouse69: that's what i assumed

    E Got Life: the dudes that tried to take over the og's spot while he was locked up

    claushouse69: there was a dude trying to take over? lol, dude i honestly read ure entire verse twice, i got most of it, but not all

    E Got Life: i figured ya'll didn't see waking ned divine so i said "i'm tryin to imply you reap my spoils of war" i spelled it the fuck out

    claushouse69: to me that means she was reaping the spoils of war when with him because he was an OG and now that he's in jail she doesnt see jackshit like the wife in Traffic

    E Got Life: who is the she? where did you get a she from

    claushouse69: the woman who's daughter died. i thought there was a relationship between the two

    E Got Life: how is she tied to his g shit? not at all...you're really like lookin for somethin that's not there. it was never implied. there was never a she mentioned. I even used the character King Lear. why would I use a male character for a female

    claushouse69: ya i didn't get those references. ned devine, king lear, i dont read the bible

    E Got Life: waking ned devine = a movie, king lear = Shakespeare, i don't read the bible either

    claushouse69: ok well i havent seen/read either

    E Got Life: so aside from everything pointing to it being turf war and his whole team ghosting once dude got out of jail and talkin bout how they're tryin to live his life, you assumed it was the mother of the dead girl. that's the biggest dumbest thing i've ever heard in my life

    claushouse69: i can only read what i know and see, and then vote on it. look you can go ahead and insult me all day, but I read your verse thoroughly, like I did every single verse this week

    E Got Life: alls i'm sayin is if that's what you drew from all of that, you're off your rocker

    claushouse69: i think that by now you should understand that what you, as the author, sees and what i see are completely different because you understand the concepts ure trying to present, all i see are the words. I’m sorry if you think I’m stupid and don't get your verse, maybe you’re right, or maybe your verse wasn't clear enough in pointing out these elements. Maybe it was a combination of both, i dont know, maybe other people didn't get it either, at least i try to be honest and provide details

    E Got Life: i know other people pulled shit out of their ass. i dunnno claimed my character was an obssessive rapist and urizen thinks that the character goes to sleep in the end of the verse. just kinda takes a nap

    claushouse69: tekneek: but GOT LIFE definitely you brought more juice this time.... ur emotional pressence was the sure shot decision in which i favored you this week..... very well written and displayed....

    E Got Life: I really want to know how many tabs of acid ya'll did

    claushouse69: The overall storyline was cool, nothing too interesting. There was nothing, as far as content that grabbed my attention as a reader, I think your word choices took away from the emotional state of the character in your piece. Its obvious to me you have mad potential, just dont sacrifice content for a crazy rhyme scheme k. cool job

    claushouse69: from erykah

    E Got Life: erykah admitted it's her first time reading me, which is why she could get it twisted bout the rhyme scheme cause this was just somethin to appease the people askin me to flow more.

    claushouse69: you flowed good. it was a tight package. but im looking at all the votes and NONE of them have any specifics as to ure verse or if they do they got it wrong. I dunno why ure hatin' on me :-(

    E Got Life: cause it's a weekly thing with you and I have your sn. believe me if I had i dunnno's sn, i'd be tryin to see where he saw an obsessive rapist cause I think that I dunnno is a rapist and is just losin his damn mind

    claushouse69: get mad at headless or you'd have a W

    E Got Life: lol. malo didn't even vote. i'ma have a W regardless

    claushouse69: that dumb •••••• doesn't even bother to read the rules or know shit about this league then acts like he's vet lol nice so then what the fuck you bitchin about! ure facin' me either way lol

    E Got Life: your lame votin

    claushouse69: lol you ever consider that criticism in a vote might not be the readers problem but that something is actually wrong with the verse?

    E Got Life: not when you're that off base. i'm sorry but far to many people got it

    claushouse69: no, you dont know that, because none of those motherfuckers said anythning specific implying they got it. you know how easy it would be for me to just say "nice story, nothing too specially but pretty well done" and just pretend i got it and avoid this kind of backlash.

    E Got Life: lol

    claushouse69: whatever, you can think what you will of my voting, i don't like ure voting either, doesn't mean ure a bad voter or that i am, we just have different perspectives

    E Got Life: and he's a racist to boot cause you know dude is whiter then snow callin hv a ••••••

    JKeeps616: k first of all, I can't wait to get to mine n claus' battle, second of all, from that convo, I assume that claus is one of those old ass vets that thinks because he won somethin 5 years ago that this means he still dope, and lol at him sayin ••••••, shit, son, I damn near lost all respect for homie, he needs to represent the vets better

    E Got Life: yea...cause he's that "OG"...like he was actin all "look at me...i'm doing an interview with Tali" last week....fucking herb of the week nods go right to dude

    JKeeps616: word

    E Got Life: speakin of which your battle is up next. now I really wanna hear your take on this

    JKeeps616: iight gimme a sec, lol, this shit is gonna take a minute to type

    E Got Life: cause the way I saw it...he had a bland approach to the topic with a decent flow...your flow was right on top of the beat you used and you came with a very emotional write that really shined through...i think the fact that you lost is complete bullshit...

    JKeeps616: first of all, my verse, personally, if you were to ask me, I would say that this is one of the best verses I've ever written, I really felt this shit, from the first word to the last, I'll break it down more when I get to the votes, claus' shit was a pretty dope story, and it def could draw a reader in, but it had that cookie cutter RSTL feel to it, that I FUCKING HATE! anyone, on to the first vote, tekneek, homie gave a good vote, explained his shit well, the only thing is, here lemme quote, "but the most bothering thing i have is that when u write ur verses, ur lines are a helluva lot shorter," and I just wanna say, DOWNLOAD THE BEAT, lol, everything else he says I understand, but each week, the verse I write is to a specific beat, and this one flowed to a specific beat, which of course has an effect on line length, aside from that, good shit tek, next was strike, and I ain't gonna say anything, cuz there ain't shit to say, homie is respected in my eyes, and I understand why he voted the way he did and I respect it, Urizen's vote was pretty good, I know what she was talkin about bout the forced rhymes, I been hearin that a long time and I'm still improvin' on it, Crosse said my flow was "alright", which is laughable, my flow was twice as good as anni's, but anni didn't provide a beat, so that theory cannot be tested, he said my vocab needs to be upped, if he read my other pieces he'd think differently, I use different vocab for different pieces, this wasn't a piece that I would use big words in, it was meant to be straitfoward and easily understood, Erykah's vote was dope, I think she truly though anni should win and provided very understandable reasons as to why, though my flow is the best, lol, just thought that needed to be said, Vigil's vote is the only reason that I kind of accept defeat, because I respect his opinion more than most, the other two votes were kinda blah, but if I could say one more thing, I wrote mine as a SONG, I am a songwriter, the way I judge pieces is whose verse would make a better song, and in this case, there is no doubt in my mind that mine would be better, that is all

    JKeeps616: lmao, my bad about writin' a fuckin' essay

    E Got Life: nah I feel you. I write to a beat too...and I only flowed so smoothly this week to make you happy lol

    JKeeps616: lolol, I was wonderin' why that shit was so directed towards my preference lol

    E Got Life: 11 n 12 though wasn't anything special in my eyes....erykah vs tha dq. I think both of them went for abstract pieces and an approach that I might have kinda taken but they were boring and confusing abstract to a point where even I was like...I don't see any correlation here at all

    JKeeps616: yea I peeped this match and immediately thought "Who teaches femcees how to flow?" It should be me, cuz these chicks could use some flow, very poetic, but like you said, boring, I liked how erykah tried usin multiple topics, iono though, just wasn't feelin this match at all

    E Got Life: yea...some of the pics she used were some of the worst pics i've ever seen available on this site

    JKeeps616: lmao, yea, they were just begging for abstract rambling

    E Got Life: speaking of a lack of abstract rambling though I was surprised by i dunnno vs ashen

    JKeeps616: how so?

    E Got Life: like this was the first ashen piece I actually liked. it wasn't confusing and incoherent. it wasn't cluttered with random references from a thesaurus, but the thing is i've seen this topic in the rstl before
    cause I use to read the rstl prolly before you ever even got to writing in it and this could have easily been a recycled verse...I think we shouldn't recycle topics in the rstl although i've seen it happen a few times this year already...

    JKeeps616: word, I was thinkin' the same thing, his shit was unexpectably understandable, the first stanza was dope as fuck IMO, after that, the flow and scheme kinda puttered to a halt, it was dope just inconsistent, probably recycled, knowing pest

    E Got Life: oh and i dunnno's piece i just didn't like how it was done at all

    JKeeps616: word

    E Got Life: you didn't hear? ashen horse isn't pest

    JKeeps616: his flowed turned me off immediately. oh fah real?

    E Got Life: turns out he let his boy use his name just so that his boy can be anonymous

    JKeeps616: type a gay shit is that?

    E Got Life: and now there'll be both an ashen horse and a pest in the league

    JKeeps616: lolol homie needa make an alias, a whole lot less homo then borrowing someones name

    E Got Life: speaking of aliases, whoever came up with the fuckin idea that i'm insense needs to come visit my crib so I can punch them in the fuckin mouth

    JKeeps616: lmao, son, I wish you could post a pic of you and insense side by side. THAT SHIT WOULD BE HILARIOUS

    E Got Life: lol...he's prolly a lot of shades darker and i'm a helluva lot bigger

    JKeeps616: lol exactly

    E Got Life: moving on though. nell vs kryptikal?

    JKeeps616: nell's shit was wack IMO, he relied too much on structure and shit to make it fun to read, if he broke it down to the basics he'd be much better, he added too much, it felt like reading a movie script, Krypt shit was more basic, a bit simpler and more straitfoward, but I would give it him anyway, Nell's shit was annoying to read

    E Got Life: i hated both of these pieces...I want my time back for reading this garbage and don't feel that they're even worth talking about. both of them need to change drastically or i'ma stop even looking in their direction

    JKeeps616: lmao, word, this battle was pretty weak

    E Got Life: oh and crosse is still the worst voter in the league

    JKeeps616: haha, what makes you say that?

    E Got Life: he even had a shitty vote in their battle. 23/30 for one and 22/30 for the other averaging 7.67 and 7.33 a category..these writes were like 5's across the board...he just bases his shit to much on numbers so he's afraid to give accurate ones...

    JKeeps616: lmao

    E Got Life: speaking of crosse him and urizen round out 17 n 18 and 19-24 aren't even worth talking about so this was the last battle to be mentioned this week

    JKeeps616: iight, umm, urizen seriously needs to step up the fundamentals, he has none to speak of, he's got the voice n narration, scheme and flow need serious work, this shit was an arduous read, and crosse's wasn't much better, though he did have a better scheme so he gets it in my eyes

    E Got Life: lol...crosse had some half assed garbage which if it was longer could have won this. urizen being ranked above us in the tourney is just more bullshit in the rstl...

    E Got Life: and don't even let me hear the bullshit of based on what you've done recently...both of these guys bored me to tears also and so that sums up an almost good week that had some hectic and whack events transpire, anything else you want to talk about?

    JKeeps616: nope not really, that's all for me, you?

    E Got Life: i'm to tired to care any more tonite. i'ma get some sleep...get at me 2morrow fam

    JKeeps616: no doubt, make sure you saved this!

    IV. TaLi's Top 5 Verses of Week 3

    5. Strike
    http://board.rapmusic.com/showthread.php?t=960600

    This isn’t the first time Strike has impressed me with his stories but I think it’s the first time I’ve found a place for him in my top 5. The rhymes and flow were nice. It was pretty cool how the story developed. The interesting thing about this piece was that he used narration in the beginning and in the middle and it actually helped to move everything along. That is something we used to do in the old RSTL all of the time but that has vanished in recent years. Kind of gave me a flashback lol.

    4. Pain
    http://board.rapmusic.com/showthread.php?t=962345

    Pain is becoming a weekly contributor to this particular article. When he puts his time into the mechanics of his verses, he can be very tough to deal with. Pain is really one of the few folks around nowadays who puts a lot of his real life into what he writes. Obviously all of our writing is influenced by our lives in some way but not usually to the extent of what Pain brings. That usually tends to go over well since it’s relatable. The one thing that plagued him was mechanics. But now that he’s getting a grip on that, it really is a matter of time before he finally breaks through for good.

    3. Annihilation
    http://board.rapmusic.com/showthread.php?t=962345

    I actually had you and Pain 1 and 2 until I read this other battle. I liked this piece a lot. Believe it or not, as much as you like to get really creative, I think this particular piece worked the way it did because it wasn’t waaaay beyond the norm in concept. It was just a solid narration from beginning to end and the scenarios were easy to imagine. Or maybe it’s just because you didn’t use 70 different colors and 6 different fonts. Either way, this was pretty good to me.

    It’s funny because, I’ve been around for most of your time in this league. You are easily one of the best storytellers in this league. The way you describe what is going on at any given time is very natural and I love reading that. Sometimes, your endings leave me wanting a bit more. But in terms of actually telling a story (good or average), you do it damn good. This particular piece is a good example of that.

    1. Vigil
    http://board.rapmusic.com/showthread.php?t=960598

    The top 4 this week was really difficult to discern. Really, any of the four were deserving of number one. I bestowed it upon Vigil for the same reasons I’ve always been a fan of his stuff (when he tries at least). It was clever. It was powerful. And, lucky for you, I’ve been in one of my “God I wish people would fucking wake the fuck up” moods lately so this particular piece happened to touch a nerve. It also didn’t hurt that this was one of your best pieces yet technically speaking.

    V. Voter of the Week

    This one is a no-brainer. The usual suspects all did there things, and as usual, if this was a top 5, I could give you all more of the credit you all deserve. However, this hasn’t been a top thing up to this point, and as long as my lazy ass is doing it, it probably won’t be. Anyways, the winner is Annihilation again lol. Go read every battle last week and it won’t be too hard to figure out why.

    VI. Thoughts on the 1rst Round so far

    I’m both pleased and disappointed I guess. I’m sure whoever does the tournament magazine will have way more to say about all of this. But here is what I think, before the votes have been tallied up.

    I was hoping for 24 contestants to show. We got 21. That means at LEAST 11 of you didn’t show and actually it was more by technicality. I’m usually not a big fan of beating folks up. But for this occasion, I’ll put that aside for a minute.

    Here are my biggest disappointments.

    Tax & H. Notik

    I don’t know what happened but I was pretty pumped up that SMO was going to have a big ass showing in the tournament. Then, yall two just disappeared. I don’t know either of you particularly well so I don’t know what else yall’ had to deal with. But, there were something like 2 weeks to write. I don’t get why yall’ couldn’t have come up with 16 when we have SMO ciphers going 8 pages and shit. Oh well.


    Mad Poet

    What in the hell? You’re basically in charge of the text side of this site. You were all pissed off about where some folks ranked you. You had plenty of motivation to write. What happened? Certainly, it could have been a time thing. But again, I always say FUCK THAT EXCUSE because I can match up with anyone in terms of a hectic life but I still manage to take care of my shit on here. So, I don’t know lol.

    Awedishin

    Basically the same as above lol. I know personally that you are a very busy man. But, it’s 16 damn bars. There were damn near two weeks to manage that. Anything would have been better than you not showing.

    Anaphora

    Same thing. I know how much shit you have on your plate. It’s ridiculous. But 16 + 2 weeks = No excuse for any of you unless yall’ have been hospitalized or something lol.

    That’s about it. I already knew that the rest of you people who signed up weren’t showing. You all haven’t showed the last 40 times you showed up for the league so I’m not sure why anyone with a brain would think you would now.

    Oh yeah, there were some good things as well. First off, given that we only had 32 lines to deal with, I was pretty impressed with what actually DID get written. I’m not going to get into specifics because the voting is still going on. But, just know that if you posted, I’ve read it and my feelings on your submission range from mildly to pretty impressed lol.

    For my surprise of the tournament so far, I would have to say Jersey Emcee takes the cake. I don’t mean to put you out like that but you know that you have a history. The fact that you showed and Mad Poet didn’t tickles me. Thanks for that.

    Like I said, I’m sure there will be plenty more to go on about later. But for now, that is about it. VOTE!!!
