    i'm just saying, that's terrible for a champ match. had each verse been yours or had you wrote 32-38 bars non-stop to the beat, it would be different. but just dropping a 16 in the middle of 2 irrelevant verses is ridiculous. worst champ match i've ever read because of it.

    you've dropped songs often, and vern, and they've always been good reads. way more substance and way more material from the actual artist. video collabs force you to stay on topic with the song and it limits your length and amount of creativity.

    giving a beat, like luc did every now and then, would be a better idea.

    ^ i think part of the problem was the song in that instance and maybe a few others

    the song itself was just a swagger song, to say/demonstrate how ill you are not much of a concept behind it.

    the song me an ace did for example had a lot more to it, other then then only having 16 lines to work with i didnt feel too restricted, cant speak for ace on that tho

    i think it woulda helped if all the songs dolled out were story type songs or songs that really had a message

    Yeah. A few better songs similar to Runaway Love (Me and liquid's song this week) would've been better, but it's whatever at this point.

    Also, I'm planning on getting the mag up tomorrow morning/afternoon. Gonna be out tonight. Just a heads up for those who are gonna wonder why it's not up

    @ k3

    not a swagger song like what jeezy an ppl like that do, but its still a swagger song to a large extent

    half the song is him talken about how great an hip-hop he is

    and its obvious im not the only who thinks, look at the verses produced for the collab

    no need, i got that the song is supposed to be about hip-hop
    but teh fact still remains that half the song is a bunch of braggin about how hiphop he is and how hip-hop other people arent.

    "Nigga I'ma hold shotty, and knock you out
    And I ain't gotta know Karate like Afu-ra" <---bragging

    "Rythmic, league c'mon wit it, I'm long winded
    I will diss you, from long distances" <---bragging

    "You will not get the chance, like Choppa
    Ness and Dylan, to dis-respect, who you don't listen to
    Egg in the skillet brain, nigga, diss is you
    Smarten up, every person in the earth, be harden up
    But the only target is us" <---your not hip hop combined with im better

    "I be dreamin about shit, like havin a hard time swingin
    On a nigga, or squeezin a trigger or fallin
    If I land, I won't wake up (yeah)" <--- bragging

    "My six shot model, ya crew
    I'm leavin ya mommy faces blue, just like a Hypnotic bottle" <---bragging

    "More venom, 5'9 is like a G5
    Illest lyrics is stored in him
    Chorus is killin, any warrior feelin
    That I ain't God - Lord willin
    Trust me, after I crush ya buildin
    You will just hush, you won't restore the village
    We look toward wit killin, real
    Though this album is mor-bidly feelin to steel" <----- bragging


    im not saying theres anything bad about this song itself, but with my little experience, for a collab in a topical league its garbage.

    maybe more experienced members see it differently, maybe you see the song differently. looking at the verses posted an that fact they both have a lot to say about themselves in their verse id say more ppl then myself have viewed the song in this light.

    ^ya, i went to vote on that battle last night an the verse completely killed any motivation to vote on any more battles

    i got about 16 lines in, i think he was confused about what the vid collab was. it still doesnt have any votes, im thinken tac/ace/nasty should have him cut the verse down to a 16. except on friday lol.

    in RL yes, when it comes to a song the difference becomes subtle, a song talken about how great you are an whatnot is pretty much what a swagger song is.

    except swagger songs will usually have more talk about how icy your chain is an other materialistic crap. but when it comes down to it, their virtually the same.

    maybe in text you could sort of say that. swagger is your attitude. if someones just caught up on braggin, Id say they got a sorry swag. your swag is just you, how you present yourself, how you hold yourself, how you carry yourself. your styles your swag. my swags kinda underground street status. its not hardly braggin, its usually a real confrontational, violent style.

    lol at you people arguing over the definition of swagger. and odds are that the moderators won't know how to handle main stream's posts and the rules probably do not address it. were there ever any definitive rules written on video collabs?
