    like for example this is a example of a bad broad punchline. I’m only battling ya
    to prove the point that you a sell out,
    so when I come round with the ak and 9 out,
    yo its lights out
    This broad punch is weak. There’s no metaphor, no
    vocabulary, no wordplay, no multies, and it rhymes
    “out” with “out” with “out.” The only punch in there is
    a gun punch, and gun punches are played out. They’re
    rarely creative, and weak rappers love ‘em. So put
    your imaginary AK and 9 back in your pants and spit
    something real. Why do you spit corny punches that nobody
    understands?
    You ain’t in my league, I’m pitchin’ at you underhand
    This is a broad punch (it could be specific if his opponent
    is spitting truly corny punches), but it works because
    of the play on “league” and the creativity of the line
    “pitchin’ at you underhand.” Plus “understands” and
    “underhand” is a dope rhyme.

    To be fair it's mostly your wording, and a few week concepts (The trashman one, personaly I hated that).

    Saying gun play punches are weak isn't always true. Big L is the best punchline rapper ever arguably, and he mostly uses crime/gun play lines.

    How should I use personal punches?
    Personals are the bread and butter of the veteran battle
    rapper. Not only do they cut down your opponent,
    but because they are basically impossible to write
    beforehand (unless you know who you’re battling the
    night before) they show off your freestyle prowess.
    Use personals as much as you can in your battle raps.
    How do I write personals?
    Here’s the trick: as soon as you know who your
    opponent is going to be, start analyzing him and
    breaking him down. If you’re at a contest, as soon as
    they announce your match-up, find out which guy is
    going against you and take a look at him / ask about
    him. If two emcees are battling at a party and you want
    to jump in, figure out who you’ll be battling. If you’re
    battling in an online forum, as soon as you know who
    you’re up against, go and read a bunch of his old battles
    and old posts. You want to dig up as much info as you
    can that you can use in your raps. In the example from
    8-Mile above, Lickety Split disses Eminem in these
    personal ways *he’s not from Detroit
    *his friend Cheddar Bob shot himself in the foot
    *his friend Future hosts the battle
    *he’s white
    *he lives in the trailer park
    *he got beat up by a bunch of Lickety Split’s friends That’s a lot of personal information that Lickety Split
    used against him, even if most of his attacks were
    too similar. In general the more you can find out the
    better. A good place to start is superficial details: what
    he’s wearing / his name / what he looks like. Let’s say
    the guy you’re battling is wearing two hoodies on top
    of one another:

    Pretty much all his lines are talkign about robbing, dealing and murdering. He's so good at it that it's still all good. Come on, the second line on his first album is threatening to blast someones head off so that it flies three blocks. That's gun play lines. I own every album he has released, the compliation of his freestyles, the first DITC album and the archives. Please don't say I don't listen to Big L when it's blatent bull shit.

    Learn to spell dickhead or learn a new insult. Why not just link to the pages your getting your info from? Much easier, and you don't have to constantly update the thread.
