    Top 5 Verses
    by Vigil



    Well, well, mothafuckin well. It's finally here and long over due in this biotch. A Tag Team Collaboration Tournament for you ninjas. Teams are looking nice as fuck and the matches, even though it's only the first round, are looking leathal too. Lots of old time vets like Tali, Black Jesus, Infinite Truth, Insanevillian, L Dogg, Vern, Awedishin, Khoi, Malosovich and many more are taking a part in making sure the competition stays stiff...... and no that wasn't a Dic joke ninjas. I wanted to give yall an overwhelming amount of different topics to choose from because we have different kinds of writers with a diverse background of talents so check em out and do da damn. Big wassup and welcome to the RSTL for all the new leaguers that are coming from other sites to see how we do our shit on this side. Grab a topic, get motivated and start stroking that keyboard maint.....

    [​IMG]



    After waiting like a year for Malosovich to make a banner for us, I was like fuck it....lets see if I can get someone else to help. Malo's my boy, but the ninja's been busy fighting off terror cells in the UK (not exactly sure if that's true, but he's in the forces and it wouldn't surprise me if he was secretly punishing people behind enemy lines by sticking hot paperclips through their eyes). So.... I got some help from Nanijah, the lady ninja, in making us some banners that we're using right now, which we haven't had in a while, like almost a year I think. Just gives the place a touch of color for us to appreciate the presentation of the RSTL... Feel it. Everybody give it up to Nanijah for coming through with the banners....

    *standing ovovations from the entire league around the globe*

    THAT'S WTF I'M TALKING BOUT.... GOOD SHIT


    The league is getting a lil stronger every week and I'll keep doing what I can to improve it as long as yall keep showing up to your matches and voting on time. Also, if ya want to write a mag article, then holla @cha boy. Just PM your idea and I'll respond, then I'll give you my email address once you tell me you're finish writing it. Can't just be giving out my email addy so randomly, but I'll hit you back fa shiggidy. Write about anything you want. We need some different personalities speaking out to let the RSTL know how you're feeling about shit that's going on.


    My daughter told me the cutest lil joke this weekend and I thought I'd share it... so here it is.


    How many Ninjas does it take to kill a Samari

    *daddy's looking puzzled and scratching his chin*

    Only 1 cuz the Ninjas I know carry guns and have good aim.


    (Kids growing up too damn fast these days)

    So I asked her, "Who you know that has a gun lil girl?"

    She replied, Isiac and Will haev Super Soakers and my friend 'Jason' has a bb gun.

    *thinking Jason needs to stay the fuck away from my Gabby*

    I just laughed cuz that's my baby and it was too cute. She's 8 btw....



    In other news, Tekneek's Audio league has changed locations to get the fuck outta our way so we have our subforum back. YAY.... and he's decided to make an appearance in our lil ole text league again. Even after constantly dissing text leagues (only because he gets shitted on by newbies constantly) and getting clowned for starting shit on the audio side of RM, where nobody even knows who the fuck he is....lmao, as well as not assisting in the text league with much more than making idiotic threads of "I'm gonna make my run for another title," before he stopped quickly as soon as someone just takes a few extra minutes to write something..... he's back to be in the family that he originally created. After all, there would be no RSTL without Tekneek and we owe him at least a thanks for that. Making a child, then abandoning it like some crackhead of a father that's too stupid, cheap, lazy and selfish to just go buy a condom. Thanks grand daddy of the RSTL... Everybody give this punk ass niglet a hug.

    Welcome back old guy... try doing something useful this time like smashing your mic against your wall and beating your computer with a baseball bat so your time won't be wasted online being a pedafile and overall annoyance to everyone. Hahahaha, j/k grandpa... good to see the old man has a sense of humor isn't it? Being an Asian rapper in LA can't be the easiest thing to accomplish, especially when you'er in your late 30s tryna battle teenagers. Do da damn Tek.. I heard the Disney Channel is still looking for someone to do Mickey Mouse raps so they can get the kindergardeners bobbin their heads.

    Welcome back though Fuckhead... lol

    With any further delays though, here's the RSTL Chronicle

    Top 3 Matches Review..... Recognizing the Competition

    Top 3 Matches Review..... Recognizing the Competition



    3. Opera toonist -VS- GotLife
    http://board.rapmusic.com/showthread.php?t=1003486

    Okay, there was some contraversey around this match because it seems that Gotlife has used the verse he posted in before in a previoius match just a few months ago. It's not against the rules to do that though and I'm sorry Claus if you thought that it was against the rules, but it clearly isn't. With that aside.... I thought this match was going to end up much closer than it actually was.

    Opera toonist (Claushouse/Annihilation) used an original format to his verse and it help my attention more than others I guess. It was really eloquent in the way he presented his piece, which is something I've always appreciated from this guy. He's not afraid to think outside the box and bring something new to his match.

    In this, he wrote a perverted tale of falling in love with his cousin after waking up next to her from a night of taboo sexual escapades. It was like something Shakespeare would write a play on. the way he narrated it was what got my attention. Although some may have thought it to be redundant in repeating his previous statements, I thought it was more poetic than anything else. I was surprised to see that many people didn't appreciate the creative licensing he used to illustrate this, but oh well. It is what it is doggy..... you got the short end of the milkbone this time, but we'll see you in a champ match soon I'm sure.


    GotLife also had a tale of sexual content, getting x rated in this bitch. (Surprisingly, my verse this week didn't have any sexual content in it at all) Anyway though, his story was of a 6 year old that gets constantly raped as child for the perverse profit of her caretakers, whoever they are, for kitty porn online. After going through so much abuse as a child, Angel (the girl's name) grows up and is completely disassociated with herself with being a woman that can enjoy sex.... she's sold online as a mail order bride and the person that buys her is her father????

    I read this and was like WTF... lmao, are you kidding me? but I guess stranger things can happen in our world. It was a bit entertaining of a tragic read though. The narration was well presented, regardless of when it was originally written..lol. The flow was even a lot better than I'm used to seeing from Mr. Lifeless and this got him to advance to the Champ Match so he can earn a title.



    2. Vigl -VS- Pent Up
    http://board.rapmusic.com/showthread.php?t=1003485

    This is another match that just shocked the fuck outta me. I knew these two were gonna go at it and give a great presentation and I know format and flow count for a lot in this league of competitive writers, but I thought this match was really tilted by people not understanding the concept that one writer was trying to bring forth...so of course, I'll help translate it because it was a nice concept and I don't think he recieved the proper credit for his originality.

    Pent Up had a very unique sight of imagery in this piece as a representation of hip hop with a MC dieing of heat stroke onstage during a show. As I continued reading this piece, I was thinking, why doesn't he illustrate the actual death a lil more, that's the kind of details that readers would like. YOu know, falling on the floor, hitting his head on a speaker as the sound echoes through the crowd like a virgin being fucked across a loud speaker, but I noticed that the death wasn't meant to be a main focus point..... It had a message of how God creates art in death and God's art was given just as large of an audience, but recieved less attention as the announcer just goes on to say who the headlining act is coming on next and shit.

    This verse had a very colorful display in it's narration with some solid flow and nice wording too that made the read enjoyable for me. God painting death through art of a guy dieing onstage was a ill concept and I gotta give the fool credit on that shit. I still think you woulda got much more notice if you were more tactless with your message instead of expecting people to understand what you're writing, but do whatcha do man. I liked it and that's fa shiggidy


    Vigil also had a nice concept and his illustration was a bit more direct for readers to understand. His metaphorical approach is understood cuz he's blunt and witty with his line phrasing so the words kinda hit you in the brain and make you think a lil bit about what he's saying. His character development in this piece gave it the power that swayed our readers to vote for him in this battle and it was good.

    He began this on breaking down how this old man is a representative of truth because he still remembers the truth before everything truthful was destroyed and replaced with colorful lies..... a poet who knows what the future holds because he's lived long enough in the past to see the cycle of life evolve into the chaos that represents his current society. In the end, he writes a passage from the mind of this character he's introducing to us and the old revolutionary thinking man tells us of his life's struggles and experiences like our grandfather would tell us of how he lived. It was very soulful and made me miss my grandpa who died when I was young. Nicely done man....

    Top 3 Continued... Match Of The Week

    MATCH OF THE WEEK

    1. Dark Nebula -VS- Atheist
    http://board.rapmusic.com/showthread.php?t=1003487


    This one came down to the last vote and still came out tied in the end. One of the best champ matches I think we've seen here in a while and I'm just glad to be a part of it.

    Atheist is known as a detailed story teller who specializes in dialogues of the dramatic sequences he brings to life in his verses. He did just that this week in a gripping romance gone to shambles because of stupid and petty differences between two lovers.

    It seems that the woman of this piece is a jealous person and yells at her man about being unfaithful to her and this pushes the man away. He leaves her and runs to this other women's arms to be consoled through the disaster of a relationship that he had only to realize that he loves his girl and should really be with her.... but by then it's too late. Tragedy has struck his lady and she gets raped and killed because he wasn't there to protect her..... damn, that's some tragic shit. The content itself wasn't too special to me, but the way it was detailed was superb and nicely narrated as well. The dramatic parts of this made it tastey to read and I'm sure this is what it liked by the voters.


    Dark Nebula ,lmao @ me talking bout my own shit in the 3rd person, but w/e... Dark had an interesting approach to his verse with a man that thought he was cursed because he couldn't sucessfully kill himself. The narration was nicely portrayed with good flow and packed with imgery and suspense, but I mostly liked the message presented at the end, which was well done in my own personal opinion... lol

    The character of this is trying to kill themselves by rolling down a hill through traffic in his wheelchair because he can't stand living anymore without the use of his legs and just wants to die and end his misery. He fails in killing himself, but manages to kill several other people along the way as cars collide in accidents from his selfish suicide attempt. Lastly, he ends up in an insane assylum where his wheelchair still haunts him as he blames it for not already being dead. The message was, you can't blame your body or tools you use for you life being fucked. You have to accept responsibility for how your life turned out and that's why even after death, the old guy still gets haunted by his wheelchair as shown in the picture used as the topic.

    A Tie Match from all that so Atheist, I'll see you again this week in man along with GotLife.


    EVERYBODY ENJOY YOUR TOPICAL CHOICES AND WRITE YOUR ASS OFF, WE APPREACIATE YOUR EFFORTS...... THANKS

    Caught in the act​

    by Claushouse [aka Annihilation/OperaToonist]


    Oh, Got Life?, you never cease to amaze. Women flock to you online and you drive down to Maine to have sex with 3 "bitches" because they dig your music. You're the RSTL's IronMan, consistently coming fresh with a verse every week for almost a year straight. You're an RSTL Champion who knocked down DIC in his prime. You and Pain are "just friends". You're not a biggot or a racist, but everyone else is. You were up late last friday writing a sick verse for your match this weekend. You care about the environment.

    Well, the last part is true.

    You pulled an Insense to try to get a title in your short run as mod to give yourself a title (which was revoked), you're a hypocrite who tried to sway votes calling me a racist for weeks for using the n-word once in an AIM convo last year, then weeks later make a thread about how you use the n-word all the time and constantly use it in public forums (http://board.rapmusic.com/showpost.php?p=13558544&postcount=21), and you pretend to write verses to cover up the fact you bite your own verses. Here's the verse you used last week:

    Got Life? vs. Tha DQ
    http://board.rapmusic.com/showthread.php?t=979015&highlight=bruised orifices gaping

    A nice 4-0 victory. In fact, Atheist liked it so much, he voted for it twice:

    First Vote:

    Second Vote:

    No Atheist, it wasn't a No Show, but good memory nonetheless.

    Alot of this information I already posted in our battle, but hey, I figured why not do it twice? EVERYBODY's DOING IT.

    [​IMG]
    Got Life? & Pain. (File Photo).

    How desperate to you have to be to abuse mod powers, lie, cheat, recycle and continue to stay in the league almost a year straight? And do you think everyone's forgotten about that Xan.ga shit where you posted a bunch of RSTL verses people in the league wrote and claimed them as your own works?

    Omen (Author NYCE, Mindscape), probably the most imfamous biter in RSTL history, actually won several titles. The difference? He was apathetic, he quit the league afterwards and hasn't come back - one wonders if he actualy ever wrote a
    verse and didn't do it simply because he could, not because he cared. Another biter was recently caught, haven't heard from him either. You're still here.

    There have been other emcee's who openly recycled, such as Ashen Horse, in lower level matches without any real aspirations for a title, Jersey Emcee as well before he'd no show the next week, the former even openly taunting Got Life? prior to a match that he'd recycle, something you loathed and complained about to no end. Times (and rules) have since changed, but despite improvements in regulations to prevent this you've managed to one-up them, pretending to have written a verse and hoping no one would notice. In fact, you've been uncharacteristically quiet over this, when you usually won't shut up even when you don't have much ground to stand on.

    Do you really want the title so bad that you have try to cheat your way to the title? Where does the hypocrisy end?

    These issues have long plagued the RSTL, and with quite a few fresh faces in the league, it's time to remind everyone that this shit will not stand in the league. As I've stated before, this is not Survivor: All-Stars, do you have any idea how many more titles and victories Vern Acular, Tali, DIC Gets Gully, Rikoshay, etc. would have if they were allowed to recycle verses they've already won with?

    There's even a possibility that GL wasn't the only biter this week, but I'll let DIC elaborate further on that one. *Dic is taking poliltical refuge on that one with his right to remain silent*

    More importantly, this has far more reaching implications; it stifles creativity. Why think outside the box or attempt creative new verses or different styles when someone else is just going to put up verses they've had success with, or that you can do it yourself? Why even have topics every week when people aren't actually writing about them? The league is boring enough with lame, uninspired verses that chew in and spit back out stereotypical plotlines we've all read a thousand times before. And, importantly, I don't want to read and vote on the same fucking verse twice. And what the hell, I already know someone likes my verse so I'm going to post it again and take their vote a few weeks or months down the road?

    Wake the fuck up people, if you're not motivated to write, sign the fuck out. Vern Acular has 100 wins under his belt, when he doesn't feel like writing, he signs out for months at a time. Take a cue from the winningest emcee off all-time. Learn from these peoples mistakes; Vigil had to do it the hard way early on in his RSTL career before coming clean. Be original. Be patient. These kind of mistakes are not a death sentence. Vigil is now one of the leagues top writers, a respected veteran and an RSTL Champion. The most important part of this league is bettering your writing; remember that.

    And Got Life?, I'm starting to think your name is a rhetorical question, because we all already know the answer.

    -Dic notes
    hhmmmm, seems like you're just recycling a bit much Lifeless. I recycle sometimes too (usually from somthing I wrote years ago), but you've recycled like 3 times out of your last 6-7 matches and you've only been in the league a few months so it's not like people won't notice you're recycling because they're the same people that were here when you first posted these verses. That just seems like abuse to me, especially when you put lil punk ass comments in your votes of how you've read this verse before like you did in Atheist's vote, but it's a verse from before your time in the league.... so how the fuck you read it before?

    Maybe you should try writing cuz you haven't been in the league long enough to be recycling as much as you do.... there's a thought.

    Dic Interviews Erokladon


    Old Interview with Erokladon that was Never Posted Before RSTL was Shutdown



    Dic [11:40]:• Was sup was sup RSTL•Crew... I'm chilling at da spot, smoking a blunt w/ Pent and hollarin @ my folks Erokaladon.• I'm not sure I splled ya name right, but WASSUP

    Erokladon [11:41 PM]:chillin’ in the night…as always

    Dic [11:44 PM]:• Fa shiggidy, I feel it.• You've made a surprising climb in the league with some interesting stories, not to mention some nice audio as well.• Don't you do shows?

    erokladon [11:45 PM]:constantly, i had a busy week this week with cinco de mayo and graduations, so i was pretty worried about the quality of work I was gonna put out this last week

    Dic [11:51 PM]:• Thas coo, always gotta think ahead of da game.• Thas some winner shit.• Fa sho........ I've read some of your stories and you can get descriptive and creative.• I like graphic shit n it's what I'm known for mostly.• Who do you think will be your next challenge in finding what you need fa da win

    Erokladon [11:53 PM]: definatly black beard...Ive follwed him since i been in the league and he holds it down...if it gets votes Im sure it'll be closebut there's a lot of dope cats in the rstl..i dont underestimate anyoneI think the biggest problem with most cats is that they loose the creative twists on there stories and they dont seem passionate in some instances when they dive into a diferent genre of stories thats what i hope i can do

    Dic [11:59 PM]: Lol, all gravy.• I'm black beard btw, I thought you knew that.• Thanks though.....• Have you been in text a while or are you just starting to bring the keyboard skills I'm basically wondering if you're an alias

    Erokladon [12:01 AM]:•lol, that’s cool. I think I knew that. and yes I’ve been on rm off and on since 2000...my first name was wynzero, Skilmatik, and I think I had another I cant remember, but ever since I found this site I’ve been down with text, although I started as a recording artist I only changed my names cause id forget passwords loose email addys and all that jazz I always thought alias where kind of wack... no offense to anyone who uses them though do the damn thinG

    Dic [12:04 AM]: Yea, I've had more names than too many......• I use them often just to see if I can't climb without known su••••tion.• It's kind of like having a target on your back n fools r aiming @ U

    Erokladon [12:06 AM]: I understand that, its just in the life I live I’m a target with a face behind the name I cant hide, so I see the connivance in it, I just deal with the net similar to dealing with rhyme’s in real life I say what I feel, and cant hide who I am.

    Dic [12:07 AM]: For show, that's the driven power behind most of us.•

    Erokladon [12:07 AM]:but it’s another game politician in real battles and shit, people are desperate to win out there... so am I, so I understand all that we’re all trying to eat

    Dic [12:08 AM]:• Skilled writers represent themselves even when creativity shines.• There's always competition, but there's also always a way to stand out.•

    Erok [12:09 AM]:exactly...

    Dic [12:09 AM]:• Creative control

    Erok [12:09 AM]:that’s what we all want

    Dic [12:10 AM]:• You were in a battle that didn't receive any votes....• I slept on it even, I admit, but I didn't know there were no votes.•

    Erok [12:10 AM] lol...yeah tough times I’m to blame as well though I didn’t vote this last week, I just wanted to apologies to the rstl for that...

    Dic [12:11 AM]: We're going to handle that and have my folks put in a solid canalization on the verses correctly....• Boo

    Erok [12:11 AM]: lol

    Dic [12:12 AM]:• Lol, its all gravy man.• It happens to all of us.

    erok [12:12 AM]:yeah but I’m trying to be the champ there's no excuse if your trying to be the best and that’s what I want btw who held the title the longest in rstl history? How many weeks was it?

    Dic [12:17 AM]: The best.... That's a big word man.• You'll possibly have to face me for the title too.• I'll wish you good luck with that, but I will be prepared.• It should be a nice match I'm thinking of imposing a title and contender match voting rule for the lack of getting these matches proper winners continually.• I think that should help the matches that shouldn't be slept on Tali, it's in the archives He's a high caliber writer

    erok [12:18 AM]:I hope so....that’s what makes this thing so exciting....tali huh...he's also a dope audio head I think all the battles should get votes. It sucks people don’t see it that way…I think that’s how it should be vote every battle. Maybe extend voting times by a day. Cause real breakdowns are what I look forward too. that’s why I’m in the league and not posting in open mic I don’t like when people are like "dude it was cool" or "wack shit" and not say why.. If you think I suck tell me why so I can grow. That’s what I really used to like about RM peeps took time to criticize your work, and good or bad tried to break it down

    Dic [12:25 AM]: Yea, he's nice wit a mic.• Keeps his flows on beat and bring some heat to it.• He's also in smo....• He recruited me in that crew.• The league has seen some great writers overall It’s a new league now though and it seems to be switching back to mostly a topical format kind of league.• Do you think you're more of a topical writer or a story teller?

    Erok [12:26 AM]: right now I’ve been focusing on stories. Because I feel that gets the votes, but I think with my last piece and more to come I want to combine story telling with topics really want to entertain my readers

    Dic [12:28 AM]:• Getting back to the shady voting display for a minute, what do you think r the needed elements of a worthy vote for the league?

    Erok [12:28 AM]:well. I think first off people need to quit bitching about votes, and others need to quit being bitches about the way they vote I think a paragraph of breakdown is necessary. So you as the reader can really explain why you did or didn’t like the shit you read most peeps in the league are very knowledgeable about structure and format they know how to break shit down...they just don’t...I understand not being able to all the time cause life happens, but come on these cats are bullshitting then getting pissed when they don’t get a "good vote"..I’m not going to mention names but they know who they are

    Dic [12:32 AM]:• Yea, shitty voting and hatred will dwell around all the time, but the strongest usually advances.•

    Erok [12:33 AM]: always...

    Dic [12:36 AM]: There seems to be a lot of new names in the league and even more no shows.• I don't think they'll ever be a solution to no shows, but people always stay longer when the votes are evaluated nicely with proper breakdowns

    Erok [12:37 AM]: makes sense. Nobody likes to be ignored...breaking down votes makes you feel like somebody cares enough to take the time out of there day to help and evaluate you...its dope

    Dic [12:37 AM]:• Being objective about critiques is hard for some though.• It takes an open mind to give your attention and see the value in the verses when voting.•

    Erok [12:38 AM]:but if your dope your dope....people will see it regardless if you not dope...grin and bear it you'll get through it...that’s why I save the champ, contender, and title matches for my last votes so I can leave after reading the doper shit

    Dic [12:40 AM]: I feel that.... There are some nice voters in the league though too that give the solid shit for the important matches and they do deserve some credit for doing the damn.• I won't mention names, but keep it up.• Also some dope ass writers.• Who do you think will make a nice match?

    Erok [12:41 AM]:shit...got life vs. pain vs. b.beard vs. tek in a 4 way.lol that would be dope or headless v. vs. me vs. b.beard in a 3 way

    Dic [1:54 PM]:• Ok, Erok... We are going to play the grade a ninja game.• That is when I name a current league member and you grade them on their skill level.• You ready.

    Erok [1:54 PM]: ready as I will ever be

    Dic [1:55 PM]:• Gravy lets start then…Pain

    Erok [1:56 PM]: • Pain, his flow and structure are nice, he always keeps you reading due to that...I think what I would like to see more of, is him getting off in to some more story telling shit. Overall, I would say he is one of the best in the league… A-...lol pulling out report cards

    Dic [1:57 PM]: Lmao…Pent Up

    Erok [1:59 PM] : Pent Up another great writer...he is defiantly championship material. He always shows up since I’ve been around, and holds his own. I’ve seen some close calls, what I think he needs to improve on maybe is using multi's to have his shit seem a little more complex, and tighten up the structure a bit. However, over all again another one of the better in our league…A-...PS his flow is nasty

    Dic [2:01 PM]: Nice, yeah.... He has been elevating his game a lot.• He will have a title soon I am sure…Tekneek

    Erok [2:01 PM] :• lol… Tek is a good writer, his structure is unique, he always tries his best and you can tell. I could see him in a champion match soon as well… but I think he tends to loose creativity points with me sometimes, and I think that is what happens if you are in the league for extended periods. The only thing I would say beyond that is that in this league he is not winning friends with his behavior so I have to dock him a grade for that. Very talented, but his attitude may need an adjustment…B+

    Dic [2:04 PM]:• Nice, lets do a few more

    Erok [2:04 PM]: sure

    Dic [2:05 PM]: Kryptical

    Erok [2:08 PM]: first off, this person goes into another realm. I like his creativity. His flow is cool. However, come on dudes having similar problems that I have. Somebody show up against him so he can finish his fucking story...lol. He could really be a sick player if he maybe toned his shit down so the average cat knew what he was talking about, but fuck it do what you do.. B+…lol...grading is funny…I’m a do it on the mags

    Dic [2:09 PM]:• I feel you.• Its fun though to see how we evaluate our members here.•

    Erok [2:09 PM]: for show

    Dic [2:10 PM]:• I like it because it shows the people who pays attention and who is a good voter, which I can see you are…Ok, two more....

    Erok [2:10 PM]: word

    Dic [2:10 PM]:• Noib Da Mutt

    Erok [2:13 PM]: cats dope, see all these dudes so far are sick, but Noib is one of the leagues stars. He holds it down. He will take you into like five different characters and really get you in the mix. With some of his stories, I wish we did not have the 64 bar rule. Cause I really want to dive deeper into his stories. Last week his submission was sick. I think it was called "the Revolution" I have never had to go against him but when we do I think it will be nasty. I look forward to it. He is defiantly champion material….A

    Dic [2:14 PM]:• Well, I am sure he would like that rate.•He's also developed his style a lot, but was always good

    Erok [2:15 PM]: for sure, his record speaks for itself over 50 sum battles

    Dic [2:15 PM]: Last, but not least...the RSTL work horse...GotLife?

    Erok [2:15 PM]: lol got life is cool...he has good intentions and you can clearly see it in the league. Probably one of the best and most consistent voters. He shows up week after week since I have been here. His stories are cool, but I think they lack conviction or reality. I think if he put the same passion, he has for the league in his stories he would be one of the sickest. He is defiantly a popular cat in the league and RM overall. However, I think his skills are sometimes over shadowed by his complaints. B+…not trying to hurt feeling or step on toes...watch how many hate votes I get this week...lol maybe I should’ve gotten an alias...lol…I really hope more than anything I can help the league and the other writers, so I hope nobody gets to hurt by what I’m saying

    Dic [2:22 PM]:• Do not sweat it man...• I will keep a close eye for the haters.• Voting will not be done with malicious intent.... Not while the dic is here because I will fuck it all I think, you did a great job and I am sure everyone can see that though.•

    Erok [2:23 PM]: nice...I got a Dic for protection…lol

    Dic [2:23 PM]:• Yea and viruses just bounce off my nuts

    Erok [2:23 PM]: lmfao…lol

    Dic [2:24 PM]:• Cannot be bothered with Trojans and shit... Fuck all that

    Erok [2:24 PM]: that is fucking funny I do not care who you are

    Erok [2:24 PM]: word, peep your inbox, the works done for you•

    Dic [2:25 PM]: Thanks for your time...is there anything you want to say before I leave and go fuck up this Angus steak sandwich?

Yeah...buy my album 10 bucks get at me…ILLFLUENT "The Cornerstone"…I got a new solo coming out JUNE 2006 called WYNO & DJ Funk10 “Comin’ Out Blastin” and we’ll be touring the US with The Wu Tang Clan in the fall so peep me live in a city near you.

    Thinking of Changing the Verse and Vote Due Dates

    Since no shows and lack of votes have been a constant problem plauging our league, I came up with an idea that would help both of those things diminish at least slightly, if not completely......

    Later Verse Due Date and Vote Due Date

    I'd push back the Verse Due Date to Saturday Night so people would have an extra day to write something after their work week, school week has ended and maybe they wake up Saturday morning refreshed to participate in the writing process. People are always complaining that they didn't have time because of various projects they had to handle during the week so during the weekend with an extended writing week, those people would be able to get in some RSTL time. Sounds good to me and I've already presented this to my fellow Mod Squad and we all agree that this is a question for you to answer because it's your league.

    I already voted yes for this idea. Pent voted No.... and Tali was undecided. lol

    The other thing would be making the Votes Due Monday Night so people have an extra day to cast their votes. I'm not sure if this happens to many of the rest of you, but I get overwhelmed with things during the weekend because I work so hard during the week at my job that I only get to see my daughter, other family, various women that don't live too close and other extra curricular activities on the weekend and voting is just put off until the last minute because I already have to squeeze in as much quality time I have with my loved ones. Monday, I don't do shit on monday, but go to work and try to put up the RSTL Chronicle Mag thingy. (well, this shit right here.... lol) If you feeling what I'm saying, then you know that votes due on Monday would help that out a lot and make things less time consuming on your weekend plans when you don't get much time to enjoy things.

    These two ideas will assist the league in my opinion to getting better, high quality voting as well as high caliber writing in verses because people won't be as rushed to complete their writing and voting and will have an extra day of leisure to enjoy their life..... It's really up to yall though so wassup?

    I'll be making a poll about this soon to see how the league feels about the different due dates.

    TOP 5 VERSES
    By Vigil


    5. Pent Up
    I loved the simplicity of this verse, and great story telling but I wasn't completed amazed. The topic and theme weren't different by any stretch of the imagination but Pent added an element that made it his own and I always like it when writers do that. I think this verse was overlooked a little cause it should be read by everybody.

    Atheist said "This was a pretty enjoyable piece. I really liked the 'card game' idea that introduced in your opening line and how you continued to follow that stream of conscience throughout the verse"

    Addreall said "your flow was as good as I can remember seeing it" and Pent, as I was reading yours, I remember thinking, damn, I probably would have never thought to use that particuar situation the way that you did in order to tie in with that quote. "

    D.I.C said "pent up, your message was pretty powerful at how death is just lurking within art and can even be a form of art as it gets more attention when it takes place in a large audience."

    Annihilation said "i liked the card game metaphors present throughout the verse, it was a creative way of expressing alot of the themes in the piece which was cool."

    4. Vigil
    I'll just say what my intention was with this verse and where I was coming from. I set the scene in the future, somewhere around 2027 when revolutionaries and poets alike are locked up and halied as terrorists so the mass public have no figure to look up to. And the character is an older version of me who tries penetrate the minds of the young but can't and stuck figuring out why state of the world has come this far. I talk about how in the future I'll go through a period of self-confrontation and inner struggle but in the end I'll come out stronger and the only prophet of the pen left who can effect people. And the last stanza of the verse was just the older version of me sending a message to me that I shouldn't go through that inner struggle, that I should take a look in the mirror before it's cracked in pieces. Alot of people don't get where I'm coming from cause I don't make it clear, I kinda keep the secret of the shit I write to myself so generally the reader doesn't get the scope of where I'm coming from and I kinda like it that way.

    Atheist said "This was a very good piece that focused on imagery, and you depicted each scene incredibly well"

    Addreall said "Vigil went absolutely fucking off the rocker with his rhymes. So many crisp multi's and so many inner rhymes in each line. And then, to still have a piece that is as clear as it is and smooth as it is, shit is damn near spectacular in my opinion. Probably couldn't do it better myself."

    Calloused said "Vigil, your verse was inconsistantly brilliant." and "The descriptions of this "last prophet" of sorts were powerful. "

    Annihilation said "aside from some long bars in the middle and some odd grammatical errors, this was a pretty dope piece with a great rhyme scheme and flow for the most part with your staple wordplay present throughout"

    Got Life said "I like how you do these self reflective types of pieces and I think this is actually one of your better ones to date"

    3. Dark Nebula
    This verse was raw, full of emotion and truth and displayed the immense skill that D.I.C possesses. I thought the verse was original and really expressed the dynamics of the picture. The writing itself was clear, potent and had significance because of the message.

    Adderall said "started off a little bit slow for me and pick it up like crazy from that point on" and DIC, as tends to be the case, complete destroyed the rhyming aspect of this battle.

    Urizen said "this was a nice piece the beginning lines were really setting the mood"

    Annihilation said "Twisted ending, that shit was fucking dope" and "the fast flow and sick scheme helped keep the ride really fast paced, while the latter part of the verse helped this piece transcend a simple joyride and entered a deeper more pertinent territory in terms of dealing with disability"

    Pent up said "chea, that's what I'm talkin about, dope story with a 'moral' (woohoo) as opposed torall story or all topical, a nice balance of the two."

    2. Calloused
    I think this was one of the most complete verses of the week, along with Atheist's verse. I liked the description, imagery, emotion, the back stories of the character and everything, basically. Plus the title went well with the story and it made perfect sense. My only problem was the god damn font lol.

    Atheist said "This was fantastic. Everything about it was just tip top; the flow, the rhyme scheme, the troubled characters finding each other, and the wording was just unbelievable."

    Annihilation said "The story itself was well done, alot of sub-text in the conversations and it progressed nicely it was a simple story yet you approached it well and subtley with great detail."

    D.I.C said "this was a pretty sweet story. It went along very slowly... was hard to really get into it for me."

    Got Life said "the imagery and character development in this piece were really top notch...enjoyed them thoroughly along with a very smooth progression"


    1. Atheist
    This verse had everything, imagery, vocab, flow, a dilaogue, emotion a good story, a good ending, just about anything that makes a verse complete and enjoyable. Atheist is an excellent storyteller, he reminds me of Richard Corey which is a huge but worthy compliment.

    Calloused said "Atheist, this verse was outstanding. The ending was touching and the story was very human."

    Got Life said "I love the imagery you bring out in everything you write." and "I loved the piece...the repetition was also very on point if you ask me"

    Forrester said "I liked the imagery and I thought the flow and rhythm was perfect. Every instance was detailed and nothing was left out. "

    Pent Up covers that section and he got into some issues this week that prevented him from completing that for me. Shit happens, but I learn to make do and pull something together anyway.

    you can feel free to add a top 5 verses if you can and I'll add it to the table of content since there's an extra post of mine that I was reserving for Pent or Tali to write something.

    shit, i didn't know you were so old, man. lol.

    damn right. i knew i'd read it somewhere before, but i just wasn't going to search the forums (especially since the search button has been cancelled by the moderators/administrators. but yes, claus, i sympathize with you; i believe recycling is only acceptable when your opponent no shows and you've posted a full verse yourself. recycling a piece that was used in an actual battle that received votes isn't cool. i've recycled once in my whole time in this league, and i'm not afraid to admit it was this week in the championship match. insanevillain no showed against me a while back, and this was one of my favourite verses. however, i re-did the verse, changing things here and there.

    i wasn't here for that, so please, fill me in with more details.

    also, did anyone notice how many times dic said "it's all gravy" in the interview? come on, dic, lol, get a new phrase.

    however, this post is now long enough.

    sure will. should be a good match, let's make it that way.

    peace.
