    Grindtime is the backbone of the BVA. Back in 2008 and 2009 members of this message board, including battlers and staff themselves, saw the homegrown rise of a new American battle league and both this site and the company have been linked ever since. With everything that's happened with GT and battle rap since MOB, there's a lot to talk about and a lot to ask and it's fitting we do it here.

    Drect's being cool enough to spare some time and answer everyone's questions in a moderated Q&A session. The Smack Q&A went very well so hopefully this goes even better; there's a lot more to discuss in this case.

    Again, this is meant to be a resource of information that everyone can re-read when it's archived so stay on-topic. Any and all troll posts will be removed and the poster dealt with. What constitutes "off-topic" and "trolling" is up to the moderators and super-moderators of the BVA so I don't want to hear any bitching or playing dumb when hammers drop.

    Let's be honestly honest.

    I know the chance is basically non-existant, but no harm in asking, anyway you could potentially access (and release) Fight Klub footage?

    First things first... can we get a concrete update/explanation about what's going on with the title situation? It's almost been a year....

    Still waiting on the 6K belt? Is there any idea of when HC and Saurus are going to battle? If not, what's the hold up? Is Storm next in line? Is the idea being scrapped altogether?

    1. What is the situation with my 2on2 battle and when is it dropping? all the other battles from hold down the fort have dropped except for mine.

    2.How much money per view on youtube is GTN making, where is it going, and how is it being used? I would like to know this because I am submitting aak vs. flamez, and knowledge medina vs. thousand, two battles I spent money on myself to make happen. If there's any money being made off these battles per click/ per view/ ad-sense I would like to know and would respectfully ask such funds, if any, be at the very least divvied between GTN and Art Of War. We can have this agreement documented and signed if need be

    Have ya'll sought other ways to try and monetize GT in other ways?

    Also, in hindsight, would ya'll have handled the Kap Kallous situation in a better way, considering the apparent void that was left without him in the fold.

    With fans being upset and believing that GT has been going in the wrong direction in recent months, what do you feel as a company you have done wrong and how are you going to fix these issues.

    For various reasons, the proper funds to throw some of the main events were not available. We are all very upset about this and trying to set up battles like Diz vs Cortez and Swave vs QP for August 26th.

    MOB was great, but there was so much money lost, and so many problems that surfaced because so many people were involved that if we had to do another one, we would need MAJOR sponsors. So, its possible, but not right now

    I have tried, but I guess there is a legal situation that involves someone in fight klub (that has nothing to do with hiphop) taking the tapes and loosing or destroying footage. I am still hoping that something pops up, but the chances are slim.
