    I | INTRODUCTION

    Interesting week. The activity seemed to be dead although everytime I checked there were at least 10 people viewing the forum. Either way, the call was made and the people were gathered and votes came in at the last minute just in time for Jook to call the matches. All in all, this was a good week with a good show up rating and some decent matches both high and low in the ranks.

    Not much to complain about. Thank you all for showing up and voting even when we had lost confidence. I know Jook was more than ready to DQ some folks on account of no voting/voting links, but mostly all of you came through in the clutch. Even TheReturn dropped some votes, I believe.

    The league should hopefully be more active this week with it nearing its regular season end. At this time, I would like to extend the invitation to all of you for your ideas on themes for the playoffs/tournament. My email address, as always, is usadesigns1@gmail.com. Please feel free to drop your ideas here, in a private message, or in my email, and I will take it into consideration. I already have a few ideas in motion, but I am open for more.

    Also, props to TR for holding down the title for so long. The archives will be updated shortly, most probably sometime next week as right now im on a tight shift at work, working damn near everyday from open to close. Hopefully I can snag back the title before the season ends.

    I apologize ahead of time if this magazine seems rushed, because I am typing this as I post. I have to be at work in less than an hour, and I have been working 7 day weeks from damn near open to close every day. As you can imagine, the holiday rush is fierce for UPS. Therefore, some articles may be left out. But hopefully, with the assistance of GL and Tekneek, this magazine will still be complete.

    Oh, and I was serious in the prediction thread when I said that if i lose to ApoGee, I will quit. Seriously... not moderating, but competing. I don't think I can handle the defeat. Alias or not, Apo, I'm calling you out homie, because this is the easiest week I've had since last week and the time before that when me and DAD met. But I want competition (although my time is limited to write). So please, please write your best. And no 16 bar verses either. Let's make this a reader.


    Without further adieu:

    At this time, I would like to extend a warm invitation to those who disagree with the way I write my magazines, or to those who may disagree with my views or the way I express my opinions, or simply to those whom may just want to help out and have a sincere concern for the future of this league. Please feel free to email me at usadesigns1@gmail.com. I am always open to suggestions and help from those who are truly interested.

    II | NO-SHOW SHINE

    LUCIFA AKA LOKSTOK:

    "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."
    William Congreve

    she looks up looks upset looking at the bloodshed
    yet thought "fuck them", sulking about stuff said
    and decides to take a short walk, sees it's a mess
    as dripping down the chalkboard are pieces of flesh
    kids hit the deck, the teacher slumped at her desk
    slugs pumped in their chests, room stunk of death
    then she sat next to the computer and wept
    ..let me introduce you to Beth..

    She goes to school knowing she'll be hit again
    because she's known as a lower class citizen
    kids are cruel, Beth knows, she's got a list of them
    written down in the cover of an issue of The Mr.Men
    just one week after she was born
    her dad never walked back through the door
    left to be raised alone by crackhead whore
    who'd leave Beth alone to go out and score
    growing up seeing her mother suck on redneck's dicks
    not understanding all she's looking for is her next fix
    screaming as she sees her mother once again gets hit
    too young to grasp the concept she's being neglected

    we snap back to present day, her mum tryina get clean
    she put down the pipe and stopped the injecting
    prays that her daughter will soon forget scenes
    she's seen from the couch, watching the pep fiends
    high and wired pill popping drug users, abusing her
    drug dealers with death threats accusing her
    of missing payments, punching, kicking and bruising her
    everynight Beth cried thinking she was losing her
    but now she looks to her mother with pride
    four months clean and a soul reappers in her eyes
    her mother's fragile body has a strut in the stride
    but the other kids don't forget and it cuts deep inside

    they taunt her daily about her mum being a slut
    how they seen even a hobo copping a feel of her butt
    everywhere Beth walked some punk would stick out a foot
    tripping her up, every kid laughing when they looked
    they'd even ride by her house just to shout abuse and
    one day Beth opened the door and found a noose hang
    from her porch with a note saying "you're a nuisance,
    a drain on society, bitch, you should use this thang!"
    and that was the final straw for Beth
    who entered her mother's room as she slept
    rummaged through the draw in which she knew she kept
    a semi automatic tech, found it and out she crept

    morning, and she had poptarts for breakfast as usual
    Beth kissed her mother goodbye and left for school
    ever mindful in her bag was what the boys found cool
    but she knew it was a 'last laugh, last breath tool'
    she sat down in class and labelled everyone a goner
    "today children we'll talk about drugs then gonna.."
    Billy shouts "hey miss, we should get Beth's mum to teach this drama"
    Beth stands up equipt "What the fuck you say about my momma?!?"

    III | THE RSTL SPOTLIGHT

    Hmmm, I thought about giving this one to Poetickz yet again. However I couldn't bring myself to honor a verse that I didn't even have the pleasure of reading. Besides that, I believe that there is one particular participant that is far more worthy of being in the spotlight this week.

    Now I know for a fact that his verse was somewhat rushed and lackadaisocal in effort. However, there is absolutely no excuse in losing to an emcee that one has dubbed as garbage.

    Got Life?, you my friend, are in the spotlight and on watch. If you lose this week, then TeKneeK and Dic Gets Gully win and anything you say as a rebuttal will be deleted and discredited.

    Lol. Granted, I did not read your battle nor did I read the entirety of your verse. You already know what I read and what I said stands true. But my reading the battle is irrelevant here, because out of all the votes, I did read that even TR's sensitive ass acknowledged the fact that Poetickz rightfully won, and I also noted that in the predictions thread someone said Poetickz is a beast. Now, the beast reference may be jumping the gun quite a bit, but the fact that he beat you does deserve notation.

    With that said, I won't continue to bash and breakdown your battle and why you lost/deserved to lose, because I can't seeing as how I did not read it. And I purposely did not read it, because I noticed that you were losing and that there was no point. My voting was last minute and I tried to give those that were close or had few votes my time. You were damn near supposed to be champ by now, and instead Nah Son undeservingly makes it to the champ match and although his verse was well written, he also is somewhat of an undeserving champ. He cruised through a loss in the contendership on an account of a technicality on your behalf, and then cruised through the title match on an account of TheReturn forfeiting his title. And yet, you, the rightful contender for the title (which is arguable) lose to Poe mothertrucking etickz?

    You are officially in the RSTL Spotlight and under our radar. Lucifa mocked your talent by stating that his record is better than yours. If that isn't motivation, then I don't know what is.

    You better win this week.

    You better win this week.

    You better win this week.

    You better win this week.

    You better win this week.

    Get the message? Suck it up and write a verse. Give the readers what they deserve. Climb the ranks and whoop Poe's ass. And if that is impossible, then beat him in the playoffs. But you better redeem yourself somehow. Because as of late, you have recycled, forfeited your title run, and lost to a "garbage" emcee. Irony at its best.

    Got Tits? Where are you at when the league needs you?

    III | Q’S CHAMPIONSHIP REVIEW

    Easy enough.

    TheReturn posted a solid verse packed with humour and familiar references. However, he knew that this verse would not hold up against a story in the eyes of the RSTL voters.

    It didn't take much for Nah Son to topple this comedic approach, posting a somewhat overdone concept with good emotion. A showcase of good writing talent, however the actual plot/storyline did not produce much of anything new to the actual topic. Well, besides the fact that it may have hit closer to home being that this was supposedly a true story which indeed won him points in the EMO category and had voters going buckwild over his verse. This whole EMO thing is getting out of hand in my personal opinion.

    With that said, I won't discredit the fact that Nah Son's verse was worthy of winning, or reading, because it was a good verse in which I also enjoyed. But the fact that his title run is arguably the most undeservant since the rebeginning of the league is, to me, a fact easily redeemable by a win against Dic this week.

    Nah Son is more than able, but whether he is willing is another story.

    Good luck to both competitors this week.

    V | GOT LIFE'S BREAKDOWNS

    THE WEEK OF THE UNDERDOG:

    I don’t know what was in the water cooler this week, but it seems everyone predicted to win, felt like fucking with whoever cares about predictions in the matches that actually counted for anything. Yet, what would the RSTL be without upsets, turmoil, a little bit of drama, and Baron Mynd talking to himself back and forth amongst his many aliases.

    So without further adieu, I bring to you…the breakdowns.

    Championship Match: 1. TheReturn (9-0) vs. 2. Nah Son (5-1)

    I think in the 13 weeks in the league maybe only one champ match was actually match of the week, this week the case was absolutely no different. The Return finally battled off the persistent abuse from Jook and yelled “enough”, indeed after a stellar run at the top our champ was tired of writing so much emo rhetoric that he put up a story that was mildly comical reflecting upon the RSTL and the status of the league to date. It was one of those nice easy going pieces that you would have enjoyed in an OM and even would give him daps for, but lets be honest, these kinds of pieces don’t hold much weight in the RSTL. If you’re confused regarding this, please reference DAD’s record when facing a decent opponent. While Nah Son had obtained passage into the champ match via some whistle blowing and luck from the gods considering the fact that he had lost in the contender match, he proved he was worthy of being in the championship spot. He put forth a story that was mildly interesting and yet it had a good amount of depth in how it was crafted. The ending seemed a little to “Hollywood” with how a man changes his mind based on one simple statement, especially with how drastic the change was, but the story was certainly good enough to take the belt. Lets just hope that Nah Son puts more effort into defending his title this time around.

    Contendership Match: 3. Dic Gets Gully (3-0) vs. 4. vada (6-1)

    Coming into this match everyone was cheering for Vern, because lets face it, no one in this league cares for people pushing 40 that act like they’re 12. On the other hand Vada disappointed us all, he dropped a topical about guess what, how the government is fucked up, and how this and that is this and that, and that we need to wake up and realize. Wow, quite compelling stuff, maybe the first 20 times I heard it, by now it’s the most rehashed topical on the face of the planet and no matter how smooth Vada’s flow was, reading this was indeed a burden. Speaking of burdensome reading Dic’s verse was rather dry surrounding both his character’s, their predictable relationship, the dull cut and dry imagery and emotion along with forced multies in overly stretched bars. The only thing Dic didn’t do though was resurrect and old horse for the 200th time and kill it again, scraping by in this battle with the fact that he offered something mildly fresh for the voters to read.

    Continued...

    5. Lord Drama (4-1) vs. 6. Bonnie Bathory (2-1)

    When you look at this match-up on paper and see one of the RSTL’s “Elite” vs the latest topic of who we’re trying to run train on, you would think L Dogg is going to run away with this one, especially with Bonnie only hanging around the top due to her bitching and possible “moaning” about how Dic technically recycled against her. Whichever the case, L Dogg seemed to busy huddling in a corner with himself about how great his rogue RSTL magazine will be and how although it will be written solely by him it will not be opinionated at all, and it will be the most honest magazine on the planet. Unfortunately, his magazine is the only thing that anyone can really be clear on as his verse this week was a giant mess. The piece was about a love or a wife or a mother, hell maybe a sister or the bitch down the street. Clearly un-phased by my breakdown from the week prior he continued to just cloud his pieces with useless imagery and an utter lack of clarity. Way to go buddy, you show us that we can’t sway the way you write, you’re a true “Elite”…anyways, moving onto the actual highlight of the battle and what will probably end up being Q’s people’s choice award of the week. Bonnie’s verse was about child molestation and a brother who stood up against an abusive father to save his sister. To me this was about the most generic thing you could do with this topic, but I guess the lack of heartfelt pieces around the league drew people into this one. That and when you consider how fucked up most of the people in this league are, a lot of people could relate, including Poetikz who claimed that it was very close to home, although he wouldn’t get into why. My assumption is he was abused as a child, after all he is from Kentucky, but that’s just me being an obnoxious asshole and nothing more, nothing less.

    7. Poetikz (2-0) vs. 8. Got Life (7-3)

    Speaking of sleeping on opponents, I literally fell asleep while keying up a verse about well…pretty much nothing that I then somehow tied into an abortion haunting a man in his dreams. Pretty much run of the mill crap right here, I definitely should have opted for that extension that 99% of the league seems to take. Anyways Poetikz piece was about a peeping Tom who watched on as a Voyeur through holes in the wall, a piece that then stemmed out towards society making a statement as to how we don’t know what kinds of deviants people are behind closed doors. Something which to me seemed like stating the obvious considering how many people seem so very straight edge, yet how much money there is in the porn industry, especially through sites like defaceherface or German porn in general. Regardless of which, Poetikz takes the win and I am left being annoyed at myself.



    9. Eye-Rime (8-2) vs. 10. DaAlmightyDolla (6-3)

    If you haven’t been following the RSTL: 90210 edition, you need to stop by this match and read Dolla’s verse. It is sure to catch you up on the latest love triangle between everyone’s favorite Heron addicted prostitute, our local racist police officer who was forced to delete his Myspace profile for reasons to be disclosed at a later date and Baby Gap aka every member in the league ranked under the 20 spot. The verse ended with Bonnie shooting down both Jook and Baron and then taking a pillow out from under her shirt and revealing that she wasn’t actually pregnant, in light of this news there was a large sigh of relief from every member in the RSTL that was partaking in the train because well, lets face it, none of the degenerates in this league should have children, for reasons why, ask Dic how much success he’s had as a father. Aside from the drama llama, Q actually wrote a piece for himself this week? I don’t know if he was struck by lightning or what, but for once I could actually read one of his verses and not feel like I wanted to kick him in his oversized head. His verse actually held a strong writers voice which related well to the probable drama that he’s actually having at home considering he’s a newly wed and having a child. Good luck to you duke. Do the damn.

    11. Sicksth*Cents (1-0) vs. 12. ApoGee. (2-2)

    The only thing people were really wondering after reading this match was who is Sicksth*Cents and why did he pick a name that’s so fucking irritating to type. While I’m aware of our mystery competitor, he made pretty easy work of ApoGee last week, just as Bonnie had done twice before. Sick wrote of how a girl feels after having gone through an abortion and yet the piece is from the writer’s voice of an angel that seemingly guides each aborted child through the heavens until there is a family read to have that child. Essentially providing comfort to those that have aborted their seed in the past, making it seem like everything is going to be alright…ApoGee on the other hand started writing something borderline interesting with some darker imagery, but as the piece was half assed with a lot of rehashed thoughts it didn’t really hold much weight, although Bonnie, who has seemingly seen/done it all wasn’t pleased with the image of a broken condom in someone’s ass. You can’t really blame her for that one though; reliving such memories can’t be pleasant.

    17. RICO (1-6) vs. 18. Condescending (0-2)

    I was about to break this down and then I stopped myself, if you read this battle, you need to give these assholes your paypal information and they need to refund you for a ½ hour, 10 minutes of that for reading the battle, 20 minutes for the headache that followed. I figure charge them your hourly rate; for those of you that sell Oranges on the freeway (DAD), charge them by the basket.

    That’s about all for your biased breakdowns of the week, drama llama over and out.

    VI | THE FIVE FAN FAVORITES
    These are not necessarily the best verses of the week; neither do they represent the views of the league as a whole. This list is compiled as a result of the responses noticed throughout the week from participants directed at these particular verses.

    Tough, seeing as though not many verses were noted to be "Great". But, we'll make the best of it. Here's my take on what people thought of the verses this week.

    Five: TheReturn

    Four: Bonnie Bathory

    Three: Poetickz

    Two: Eye-Rime

    One: Nah Son

    VII | Q’S TOP THREE VERSES OF THE WEEK
    These are not necessarily the best verses of the week; neither do they represent the views of the league as a whole. This list is solely dedicated to the opinion of its writer. These are the three verses that I enjoyed to read the most.

    Three: Poetickz

    To be honest, I believe that your verse was highly overrated. The flow was very choppy and it showed clearly that you sacrificed your wording in numerous areas for your flow, which overall was not worth it. Like, the name Hoarse was corny and clearly chosen for flow, and the line where she calls the cops like she's the "law and some"... wtf is that? Also, where you split the stanzas were, to me, incorrect in execution and somewhat threw off the verse. For instance, in the second stanza you switched from the cop coming in to the guy watching the family and then the lady called the cops, but this was all in one stanza. Then, you switched stanzas to the cop coming in. Maybe I'm being a little too critical, but I'm just trying to point some things out so that you come with your A game this week. Nevertheless, out of the verses read and with limited time, you have landed in my number 3 spot. Overall the story was somewhat enjoyable and nicely done. The flow still lacked, and it read more like run on sentences, but the actual plot was creative and well woven with good character development and story progression. Pretty good job and impressive win, although I still haven't finished reading GL's verse.


    Two: Dic Gets Gully

    As noted in my vote, this verse started out slow and seemed boring and heavily overpowered by the flow. But in the end, it all added up nicely to the plot and actually made for a very creative and interesting story. I like the idea you have going with the two sides to the story thing, although I don't think you've perfected it yet. Also the rhyme scheme you chose, to me, became too repetitive and annoying after awhile and you should have switched it up. But, nevertheless, your plot/storyline was of the most creative from this week that I read and I thoroughly enjoyed your take on the topic and the ending and finding out what you meant. I honestly thought you were tripping at first, but it turned out to be pretty good and written fairly well. Good job homie.


    One: Nah Son

    Obviously, you had the easiest week outside of my battle. However, you still continued to produce solidly written material. The line was drawn here however when you mentioned that it was a true story and therefore your verse jumped to the top of the scale in the voter's eyes. To me, the personal level held little weight. What was impressive, however, was the actual talent howcased in writing. The verse flowed nicely and was well written along with strong emotion and a sense of a higher meaning. It was a refreshing read and the talent in writing alone landed you at the top of the list. Good stuff, and good luck in the champ match this week to you and Dic.

    VIII | GOT LIFE'S SHIT LIST

    This week’s Shit List is sponsored by AIDS, if you happen to find your name on here, please stop by and we’ll inject you with a used syringe in hopes of helping you contract some.

    Earning himself the right to be castrated and crucified upside down is everyone’s favorite friend, JOWELZ. Indeed not only did this burnout of a writer sign back in again and claim that he was going to show, plus have the nerve of checking into his battle. Guess what he did, if you guessed no-show, you are correct sir. Obviously this was a huge shock to TekNeeK who figured that the Hero of his late thirties would return and give him the inspiration necessary to live till the age of 50, but no such luck. We’ll be praying for Tek.

    Not far behind their veteran leader, the pack of no-showing scumbags are as follows: King Grimet, who was to busy ruining the Open Mic section of RM to show up to his battle against the grandmother of the RSTL, Vigil who just hasn’t been the same since he won rookie of the year in ’05, Rev who was to busy practicing his speeches on how to rehash the RWE, something so exciting that in the two weeks since the sign up has been posted Baron Mynd managed to sign up 5 times, bringing the total of sign ins to a whopping 8 people. Clearly Rev is showing a pinnacle of success and can’t be bothered to write in the RSTL.

    Now normally I’d also place Dougie G on the shit list for no-showing, but I actually want to thank him for sparing me from having to read his battle and having to vote for Lokedlipsonmycock because that would just be to irritating for me to tolerate.

    In recent weeks this has been the majority of what has hit the shit list, but the voting of two particular members screamed retardation to me, so two lucky numb nutted midgets get to earn a special moment in the lime light of this week’s shit list.

    Those two ass clowns are TekNeeK and Condescending.

    First lets take a look at Condescending’s votes:

    Anyone else see a nice clear cut trend here? To me it looks like this kid doesn’t even really read most of the verses, with his breakdowns being more vague than when Bush addresses the question about WMD’s in Iraq, something so vague and irritating that people have already stopped bothering to ask. I won’t go further into this, but I think most of you can clearly see where I’m coming from with this.

    As for Tek, I won’t showcase all of his votes. But in the champ match where everyone on their grandmother, well…unless your grandmother is Tek, knew that Nah Son won, with a vote tally of 14 – 0 for Nah Son, Tek came in and dropped this GEM of a vote on the battle.

    For those of you unfamiliar with Tek’s # rating scale 77 is Keep Trying and 75 is Naww. Which in comparison, RICO’s 21 bars; that barely tied Condescending before losing the match for being a useless piece of shit that doesn’t vote, got a 78, essentially according to Tek’s scale, Rico’s 21 bars was better than anything written in the champ match, although Rico’s verse was said to have reminded some voters of Dr. Seuss’s rhyme scheme.

    Other people making the shit list this week are as follows:

    Jook, lead by example asshole, vote on the champ and contender matches even when you catch a no-show win.

    P.G. and Alias2 for not voting, which is why their battle did not receive a breakdown. That and because it was garbage to begin with and I wouldn’t want people to have to think about the crap for a 2nd time.

    Sicksth*cents and Apogee for not voting, voting makes the league go round, Sicksth…I expect more from you at least, all things considering.

    Nah Son for not voting, lazy bastard, just because you can afford to lose the 6 votes, doesn’t mean you need to be a homo about it and not vote.

    And last but not least.

    Both Dic and Vern for not voting, lead by example, you guys should know better then that, you’re two of the longest serving members in league history.

    With that said and done.

    This concludes this week’s Shit List, a place where 15 of last weeks 28 competitors can call home.

    IX | THE COVER STORY

    I really didn't have much to discuss this week. Lackluster week activity wise which produced much of nothing to write about in the magazine. No specific beefs or problems, just a lack of activity and last minute voting.

    But there was one thing that I noticed that bothered me while I was doing my last minute voting, and that is creativeness. Wow, is it just me or did everybody and their momma choose the picture with the girl and the gun? Out of 20 damn topics, there were maybe 2 or 3 verses that chose something OTHER than the girl with the gun. And not only that, but creative spins were few to none. It seemed as if everyone wrote about a little girl shooting someone.

    We have got to continue to strive for excellence and push the boundaries of our potential. Creativity is a strong factor in constructing a stand out verse, among other mechanical aspects, and I fear that the longer we write, the less creative that we have become. It could easily be due to the fact that the holiday's are here and time is limited, but still... What is the point in posting 10 damn pictures when everyone is just going to choose the same one?

    Besides the shooting picture, there were also quite a few that chose the pregnant lady, which also seemed to be literal takes on the picture.

    There were just so many good ideas that could have been executed with both pictures, and yet many of the verses were the same plots rewritten by different people.

    There is no real point to this other than to motivate those of you who claim to be good/great writers to push it to the limits and write those outstanding verses that gave you your clout. And to those that strive to be good/great writers, hopefully you will do the same because in the end, creativity is THE deciding factor between good and great and any other level of talent.

    Good luck to you all. And for the record, I know that I do not write the most creative pieces, and I'm not saying to become a "DaAlmightyDolla" and throw away any writing talent that you may have to produce the most nonsensical verses known to man. But please, just try and keep it fresh and if you see 5 other verses already up about the same thing, then choose something else.

    This is Q. Holler back.

    X | THE TEKNICAL OPINION

    If there’s anyone that represents good writing it’s DIC GETS GULLY. He is consistent and possesses a format in writing that works well to readers. On a subpar presentation in writing a verse, he comes out still better than most in the league.

    BONNIE BATHORY is the epitomy of writing a good verse. Her verses are the type of rhymes you’d expect to read in a song. Her wordplay is flawless and her fillers create a perfect segue and connection to the topic. Her limelight award verse is the evidence and when doing a search on all the rhymes she’s typed up recently, it remains consistent. Rumor was said that NIQUE is a dude playing a female name (wtf type of shit is that?). NIQUE maybe great but BB is definitely on a level on her own in which she can be RSTL champ undoubtedly.

    Aliases are a piece of shit. Anyone and everyone that uses alias is a pussy and/or not able to deal with hater votes. Why do people primarily make aliases? Well, according to most … they gain a certain reputation with the original names they use in which they get hated on and think that that sets them against those readers on a weekly basis. Take a break from writing and wait till shit quiets down – then get back into it! Honestly, aliases are just another form of cheating and a pussy way of getting back on top of the rankings.

    And what is the deal with ghostwriters? Are you fuckin serious? People so lazy that they tell others to write their shit for them? Gimme a fuckin break. Seriously, that’s like some dumb shit. I would question anyone’s talent that needs someone else to write their shit --- just another form of pussying your way to get a win. It’s like you know your shit isn’t good so you get someone else to help you win. Come on!

    It’s like a few of the cats in the league write their shit, vote and continue on. They play it honest and follow the system doing their own shit and earning their wins/losses. Those that take easy ways out are just pussies --- that’s just my take.

    JOOK and Q get props for maintaining the league – although the number of people is not as big as it normally was before … they’re keeping the boat afloat for some of those others that loyally rep the league.

    That’s all to be said. I’m not gonna talk about anything more …. And of course many of you know I got a beef with a certain someone in this league who continuously makes rants just to keep himself attention-satisfied amongst ya’ll … but despite what he says about me … it’s realistically pointless to conflict – so if anything – I’m just gonna rep the league strictly here on out.

    Peace to the respecters … point presented.

    Out.

    XIi | Q'S PREDICTIONS

    The Top 4:

    Championship Match: 1. nah son (6-1) vs. 2. Dic Gets Gully (4-0)
    Nah Son -1

    It may be arguable, but I think that Dic is clearly the underdog here. Why? I don't know, but it seems as though the crowd favors Nah Son. Maybe I'm the only one left still wondering who in the world this Nah Son character is?... Either way, I think this will be pretty evenly matched assuming that Dic isnt still playing with formats and actually writes to win. A pure match that will come down to the better story. Both writers have proven their talent and both are capable of toppling the other. I'll go with Nah Son on this one by at least a vote due to more emotion. LOL, emo wins battles now fellas.

    Contership Match: 3. Bonnie Bathory (3-1) vs. 4. Poetikz (3-0)
    Poetickz -1

    Again, I think that Bonnie is the underdog, although I'm still wondering who this Poetickz character is. He has good ideas, but I still think that Bonnie is actually the better writer. If both bring their A game, I think it can go either way. Being that Poetickz is a crowd pleaser as of late and has been said to be a "beast", I want to call this in his favor, but I'm going against the odds and sticking with my girl Bonnie Bathory here by at least a vote or two.

    The Bottom:

    5. Eye-Rime (9-2) vs. 6. .ApoGee. (3-2)
    Even

    Hmm. Again, I dont like to call my battles, but if I lose this one then I quit.

    7. TeKneeK (2-0) vs. 8. Lucifa (8-3)
    Lucifa -1

    Another close battle. I honestly don't think that Lucifa is ready for TeK and the long drawn out verse that he will post. Hopefully Luc does his thing here tho because I would hate for him to lose to Tek and make that record even uglier. I'm going with my gut and personal preference here with Lucifa by at least a vote.

    9. Condescending (1-2) vs. 10. Londo (1-0)
    Condescending -1

    Hmm, I'm really not familiar with Londo, but Con has shown solid potential and hopefully can only get better. With that said, I'm going out on a limb here and calling this one blindly with Condescending coming out on top by at least a vote.

    11. Juked (1-0) vs. 12. Alias2 (1-0)
    Alias2 -2

    Hmm, I'm also unfamiliar with Juked but I have liked Alias2 in the past. Therefore, I'm calling this one Alias2 by at least a vote or two. If my memory serves me correct, then Juked had a tough time toppling Smoked Trail last week, so I don't expect this to be a reader.

    13. $1.50 (1-0) vs. 14. S. Issue (4-3)
    S. Issue -2

    I don't know this $1.50 character, but I know Jook predicted him to win. Odd. I'm sticking with the home team and going with S. Issue by at least a vote. I would also like to add that you better win Issue, or I will never predict you to win again. Enough with the excuses, pick up the pace and do what you gotta do homie.

    15. Rocket (1-1) vs. 16. vada (6-2)
    Vada -5

    Assuming rocket shows, this will still be a blow out. I believe this was a match not too long ago and rocket ducked. Regardless, vada is the better writer and assuming he actually writes and quits bullshitting with these audios and topicals, then this should be clear cut. Vada by a mile.

    17. Lord Drama (4-2) vs. 18. Got Life? (7-4)
    Got Life? -2

    This may be less lopsided than I hope, but one of these writers will step up and knock the other one out. I just think that GL will be the one to do it. Both have something to prove here and their clout is on the line. LD is less consistent in my opinion as a writer, while GL is usually just good enough to snag a win. With their pride on the line, I predict that both will find time to write, but GL will prove to be the better or more enjoyable writer here while LD posts a flowing far fetched story with no real emotional factor between the reader and the characters. Got Life? by at least 2 votes.

    19. Sicksth*Cents (1-1) vs. 20. Dougie G (1-3)
    Sicksth*Cents -5

    Umm, I believe I know who Sicksth is, or who people say he is at least. If it is true, then he will hopefully make quick work of Dougie G, the new leagues Unavailable who's talent is also unavailable. If not, then hopefully the assumptions of others are wrong and sicksth is just another wack newbie. Regardless, I'm still saying that Sicksth*Cents wins by leaps and bounds, and then miraculously changes his name.

    21. Rico (1-7) vs. 22. Smoke Trail (0-1)
    Smoke Trail -2

    I mean, what can I say. I would hate to be that one. Lol. Rico is like the Dolphins of the RSTL, and hopefully Smoke isn't the Bills. I'm going with the flow and calling this another loss in RICO's favor, being that it seems to be the trend. Smoke Trail by a few.

    23. Macmili (0-0) vs. 24. + God + (0-0)
    Even

    I know of neither, but people seem to know of Hades who supposedly equals this "God" character, so I'll go with him. + God + by at least a vote.

    25. TheRealJudgeD (0-0) vs. 26. James Bondage! (0-0) vs. 27. Abn0rmal (0-0)
    Even

    Who knows? Who cares? Baron can battle himself all day. I say which Baron alias Baron wants to win, which will probably be Abn0rmal, being that he seems to post on that name the most often as of lately.

    XIII | Q’S TOP THREE COMPETITORS FOR WEEK SIX

    Three: TeKneeK, because he claims that once he's in the top 10, he will be unstoppable. LOL. I highly doubt that, but I'll take his word for it and assume that he gives it his all this week. Hopefully Luc is well prepared and proves to be either the better writer or at least the more enjoyable to read.

    Two: Got Life?, because he better not lose twice in a row. Although losing to Poetickz last week is a bit worse than a loss this week, I assume that he will do what it takes [or what he thinks it takes at least] to pull away with the W here. That, and the fact that his pride and clout is on the line, going against Lord Drama who he had the pleasure of shitting on in last week's magazine.

    One: Baron Mynd, Mainly because he's battling himself this week, with 3 aliases signed in at the very bottom of the ranks. Therefore he will clearly be a top competitor, competing under 3 completely different names. LOL. And by chance if those are not all of his aliases, then this number 1 spot rightfully belongs to Dic Gets Gully who will strive to take the title and prove his worth against his self proclaimed "haters".

    XVII | CONCLUSION

    Basically, the mag will most probably be posted on Tuesday's from now on because I'm working a tight shift right now and have less time than I had when I was in school.

    I hope you guys understand. This was a decent week but hopefully it will get better. Good luck to you all this week.

    Oh, and to Dic and Condescending, I really don't know what you characters are talking about, but please quit sending me private messages. If you feel that I have disrespected you in anyway, then please be a grown man and suck it up and move on. I have no time for the sob stories. Grow the fuck up.

    At this time, I would like to, again, extend a warm invitation to those who disagree with the way I write my magazines, or to those who may disagree with my views or the way I express my opinions, or simply to those whom may just want to help out and have a sincere concern for the future of this league. Please feel free to email me at usadesigns1@gmail.com. I am always open to suggestions and help from those who are truly interested.

    H/B.
