    The Standard League Rules will be Enforced in the Tag Tournament

    Due Dates

    VERSES DUE: Friday 12:00am PST/3:00am EST
    Verses posted after the deadline will not count!

    VOTES DUE Sunday: 12:00am PACIFIC/3:00 Midnight EST
    Votes posted after the deadline will not count!

    • Check-in (Posting in your match to show that you are aware the match exists) is encouraged but not required.
    • Verses must incorporate at least one of the provided topics and must be at least 16 lines and must not exceed 64 lines.
    • Anyone who does not post at least 4 rap lines, incorporating at least one of the provided topics, is considered a no-show.
    • During check-in, you can ask your opponent to agree to a line limit (Minimum 16) and if your opponent agrees, Moderators will hold both participants to that limit.
    • Posting between 4-15 lines is considered a “show” but will not result in a match. If you post 4-15 lines, and your opponent posts between 16-64, you will lose the match but you will remain in the league. If you post 4-15 lines, and your opponent does not show, you will “Win by no-show”.

    Voting:
    • If you do not show you can still vote and post the links in your match to receive full voting points. In addition, if you do not show, yet vote on at least 4 matches (Or, every match available, should there be less than 4 matches to vote on) you will remain in the league.
    • Votes must be hidden! To hide a vote, first thing you type in your reply is a bracket “[“, the word “hide” and end bracket “]”. The last thing you type in your reply is a bracket “[“, a backslash “/”, the word “hide” and end bracket “]”. Unhidden votes will not count towards the match or towards your vote requirements.
    • No second chance votes! If your vote has been edited, even it was only to hide it, your vote will not count towards the match or towards your vote requirements.
    • No bias votes! If you have a personal investment in wanting someone to lose, whether because that member voted against you once, or you just don’t like that person, whatever the reason, do not vote in the match. If have a personal investment in wanting someone to win, whether because they’re crew member, or because you want to face that person in the next week’s brackets, whatever the reason, do not vote in the match.
    • ”Bias” must be confirmed by a Moderator.
    • If there is a match which you will not be able to vote on, due to “Bias” of any type, state so within your match prior to Verses Due Deadline. If this reduces the number of matches available for you to vote on to the point where you are unable to vote on at least 4 matches, the point scale will be adjusted according to how many matches you do vote on.
    • 3-ways are inevitable. In order to provide a tie-breaker in a 3-way, you are now required to indicate in what order the contestants finished (1st, 2nd, 3rd).
      anyone who does not show or vote is suspended one week and must sign-in again to be inserted the following week.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If You Don't Post A Verse, You Don't Get To Vote Unless You're An Ex Champ. Ex Champs Must Vote On A Minimum Of 4 Battles For Their Votes To Count While They're Not In The League Or Have No Showed In Their Match. If They Fail To Vote On All 4 Matches Before Due Times, None Of Their Votes Will Count.
    ____________________________________________________________________

    I Have No Problem With Crew Votes, But I'm Going To Limit Them To 2 Crew Votes Per Match Because Any More Than That Seems Severely Biased And It's Only Fair To Not Be Cluttering Your Crew Mates Match With Votes. Any More Than 2 Crew Votes And None Of The Crew Votes Will Count At All. Got To Keep Shit Fair And This Has Been An Obvious Problem Of The Past.

    The New Book of Job: Wat has becoma us and dem.

    Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.
    H. G. Wells

    2
    The one whole is now a sum.
    A palette knife and a paintbrush.
    A stained flush, aortas bloody gush,
    Is what his life’s become.
    How does the mind turn two dimensional.
    He spent his skulls on death,
    And receiving the prized curse,
    Was only half intentional.
    To work or not to be was the question.
    He chopped the Ritalin for ingestion.

    P
    Injection into the small intestine.
    Problems were just problems, hardly foes.
    Digging a well to Hell,
    Fill it with heroin to the garden hose.
    A needle attachment, strictly composed of Aspirin.
    While the them exposes the us,
    Bouncing off walls in our glass den…
    I think I felt my balls bounce in my desirables.
    Money for me blends with the trees.

    2
    Differentiating the breeze and the heat-
    Is entirely unrecognizable.
    My number grows stuck in the age of the Pentium.
    I was too busy playing slapass at the millennium…
    Drinking Denny’s rum from Jamaica,
    I used to draw pictures of types of island.
    I could shut my eyelids,
    And suppress all types of mindless violence.
    Drop all color shit that was timeless.

    P
    Timeless because it is where it was left.
    All of that and still not your highness kid.
    I used to shit in Lipton bottles at free lunch.
    It was like I once was my hiney’s id.
    In front of everybody sans the camouflage.
    Doing drivebys with SuperSoakers,
    Blasting Beastie Boys’ Sabotage.
    A sum now non-existent,
    Was so far distanced from money

    2
    I just wanted the them to-
    Somehow look at me funny.
    Now there’s a warrant for my arrest,
    Stemming from an Iris citation.
    I didn’t get my request,
    Singing the Chorus of “My Generation”
    The new us is going to book me: lookin.
    Who’d ever thought the day I’d accept my brain,
    Being a whoopee cushion.

    P
    And all of that while I could be poopin.
    I’d surely be handcuffed, and arrested,
    Detested.
    All that’s set between me and Death is a cigar and a battery.
    One bottle of Rum a peaceful Island Castle,
    Is now considered a blasphemy,
    Them doesn’t know that when they make a pass at me.
    We R da dem of da us and da us is an catastrophe.​

    Human history becomes more and more a race between education and
    catastrophe.
    H. G. Wells


    Vern
    the finish line in sight...a false start and we're giving
    a pop quiz designed for life...the hard part is ascending
    we pause, pardon the sinning, but hearts hardly forgiving
    expand from the hands of man we starve carving beginnings
    to a foot race in a books space sort of guarded but written
    teeth marks in an apple have you in the garden of women
    tortured from learning burning getting scarred by a gremlin
    a teacher turned terrorist taunts the mere thought of attending
    a modest opinion baffling the average mind
    half of the time c.omplexity erases the good half and collides
    creating a battle of cries confused....it's abstract in design
    how history repeats it self before it captures a vibe
    that distracts us through time, causing catastrophe,I...
    thought education was the key for a man to survive
    but from diplomas to degrees i feel it's over with you see
    the moment it repeats it's like...What happened? and Why?


    well....

    Awedishin
    the present and past, they collide, a crash course to genocide
    caught up with a foggy insight, do we live or do we die
    is it trivial that I wanted the simplest ride?
    Or is more like human nature to desire to slide
    Into place and to waste all of our time in this space
    Take for granted everyday that we’re set and we’re safe
    Is it a smart bet to make and if that is the case
    Is the minimal education the basic standard in place?
    We see the Earth landscaped with a keen damage to face
    And The whole World gets a slice of the scandalous cake
    And anymore…
    To be a man is to forsake all that used to be great
    Put it behind on the stack of a past full of hate
    We’ve got a passionate fate to land square on the date
    Where the forks in the road are back at one on the plate

    Black Beard/Dic and Yo Momma/Yassa Arabfat


    Dic

    My focus is clear; a quick glance made me notice my rear
    Swept the ocean and steered back in a loop, then froze in the air
    Target exposed as I stared, aimed and unloaded a flare
    The smoke is glared off the bright lights of explosive terror
    The pilot evacuates this savage fate; parachuting to safety
    Until I chase him down blazing rounds til limbs fall loose with shell
    casings
    Shooting like crazy.... vision is doubled as I slip into trouble ...
    Within this bubble calling for backup to come persistent and huddle
    I get a rebuttle,
    "Bravo Dic N Eye, we have your position
    Keep towards the moutains and turn back so we can trap these 2 bitches
    There's one ya left and one ya right, but they're under my sight
    So do whatcha do, you got the name..... "

    "I know.... just come in their eyes"

    Our chuckles are muffled by afterburners shiftin in action
    Missled are fired, but my compadre Yo Momma continues kicking their
    asses
    Skillful assassins, I turn around and circle in motion
    Seeing the plane trying to escape, but I fire shots that turn to
    explosions
    Get back on the radio,
    "We're blasting these crazy hoes man, I'm feeling the rush.
    I have 2 missles left to spit their death til their shit just combusts
    Into the dust, turn their airforce into stencils of rust
    Against 3 million of them, we don't even need a million of us.... "


    Yo Momma

    "Dic, I'm under severe pressure, they're flying in circles around me
    To get me to land I think so I'm permanently grounded
    They want my plane... hurry man, I'm cornered in motion"
    Turn around and he's got my back, I dive down to the ocean
    The high speeds through gravital force has captured my stomach
    Pulling up, and thrusting level before I crash into rubbish
    I see sparks in both directions, that arent from my craft
    Wing bits fall as Dics bullets tarnish their ass
    They felt the Karma at last as water submerged my previous target
    as the deep sea is softened I pull up to even the odds with
    a meanly lit bomb, which seeks the heat of bitches in this dog fight
    Trying to spiral out, debris flashes, picturing what god likes
    I catch glimpses of some soft lights and pull a loop de loop
    until I even out between two jets..
    in full persuit I shoot
    I get Hit from behind and eject as thoughts split in my mind
    My chute rips in mid flight but I'm suspenended...
    Am i trippin, im fine?
    I Look up to see my chute covering the jets windshield
    Riding the skies caught, blinding the pilot yet its real
    I give thumbs up signaling for dic to bust a few off
    Get ready to pull my backup cord as I cut my chute off
    The wind sweeps me as I glide down back towards our ship
    Breathing deeply, hearing live rounds attacking from Dic
    But wait a second, I see one swimming towards cover beneathe
    Grab my gun from my reach, before I splash and shots plunge through his teeth
    Red rivers deliver a horrible aftertaste in my mouth
    As I hold my breathe, then swim to base and last through this round


    Dic

    Soaring back with the forces that give me strength through the war
    Victums are minimal, everyone I killed had my aim on their fore....
    Head and they'll be more shed of bloody stains on the floors
    For the rights reserved in liberty all this pain is endured


    Yo Momma

    Even at my worst moment, I find a way to survive
    Can't let stress infect my mental state and fade out my life
    I'm a pencil writing my future with no eraser to hide
    So I keep it moving in all I'm doing and swim with the waves of the tide

    [hide]Pest and 200:
    Meh, this wasn't anything spectacular. Nothing really stood out to me, and the way you both worded certain segments was awkward, forcing me to re-read a couple of lines here and there to get the gist of waht you were trying to depict and convey. I think you could've done a lot more to make this piece interesting, because the topic was so broad and was beginning to be full of vivid imagery, etc. However, I just don't think you brought enough to the table. You needed more stuff like this;

    Differentiating the breeze and the heat-
    Is entirely unrecognizable.
    My number grows stuck in the age of the Pentium.
    I was too busy playing slapass at the millennium…
    Drinking Denny’s rum from Jamaica,
    I used to draw pictures of types of island.
    I could shut my eyelids,
    And suppress all types of mindless violence.
    Drop all color shit that was timeless.


    That was decent, but everything else was sub-par in comparison.

    Vern and Awe:
    What really stood out in your collaboration was the flow. The verses themselves were short, but they contained enough to keep my attention through. I think Awe could've done more with the topic, but overall, you both had some standout segments, which I'll italicize now;

    we pause, pardon the sinning, but hearts hardly forgiving
    expand from the hands of man we starve carving beginnings
    to a foot race in a books space sort of guarded but written
    teeth marks in an apple have you in the garden of women
    tortured from learning burning getting scarred by a gremlin
    a teacher turned terrorist taunts the mere thought of attending


    I really enjoyed the 'teeth marks' line, and I also loved the alliteration in the fifth line of the italicised section I just quoted above. Fantastic work. I also enjoyed this;

    Or is more like human nature to desire to slide
    Into place and to waste all of our time in this space
    Take for granted everyday that we’re set and we’re safe
    Is it a smart bet to make and if that is the case
    Is the minimal education the basic standard in place?


    Dic and Moms:
    Flowed magnificently, content itself was on point, and I'm getting too tired to even type, so I'm just gonig to italicize some of my favourite parts;

    Get back on the radio,
    "We're blasting these crazy hoes man, I'm feeling the rush.
    I have 2 missles left to spit their death til their shit just combusts
    Into the dust, turn their airforce into stencils of rust
    Against 3 million of them, we don't even need a million of us.... "


    and...

    The high speeds through gravital force has captured my stomach
    Pulling up, and thrusting level before I crash into rubbish
    I see sparks in both directions, that arent from my craft
    Wing bits fall as Dics bullets tarnish their ass
    They felt the Karma at last as water submerged my previous target
    as the deep sea is softened I pull up to even the odds with
    a meanly lit bomb, which seeks the heat of bitches in this dog fight
    Trying to spiral out, debris flashes, picturing what god likes


    Nice work. I enjoyed the comedic aspects of Dic's opening verse compared with a slightly more serious tone in the second verse by Yo Momma. Overall, good work. In conclusion though, I'm gonig to rate it like this;

    1. Dic and Momma
    2. Awe and Vern
    3. Pest and 200

    I think if Vern and Awe had have included more in their piece, they would've won this. But, since they didn't, I got to give it to Dic and Momma, because they had a better read that really kept my attention throughout. Good match up, but like the other threeway battles, this is death to vote on because of the length, lol.[/hide]

    hmmm....

    Pest and 200Proof

    good verse i was feeling the back and forth motion of the piece and the musical references u used... im not a big fan of the short lines, but i caught your flow in it and it was good...

    vern and mac-

    u know your family to me and the pieces u dropped were thought provoking... i really enjoyed the read cuz it got my brain going...

    dic and yo momma, im a sucker for the story and it is my top choice of a read and u two kept it kinda interesting... i never read an airplane fighter jet rap before so the idea was also original... kinda like top gun...

    i vote...

    dic and yo momma...

    the story was the most "entertsining" read... vern and mac are my fam and i loved your piece as well, and if i based it on skills alone u two would have took this, but it wasn't as entertaining for me to read as the fighter jet story...

    it just kept my attention and i wanted to see who would survive...[/hide]

    damn... dic's piece was incredible. vern and awedishin have the second best piece and imo pest and 200 round out the battle...

    here's why... first of all this segment was ridiculously powerful,


    from ^that point on i was absolutely ensnared by the awe-inspiring perfection of your piece. i don't know what tp say except for, "dope" action sequences like this piece are usually very difficult to narrate but you pulled it off very well. great job.


    vern and awe- the piece was really good. no complaints. dic's was just better in my opinion. on my home site we never do 60 lines and all this crazy shit that you guys do herecuz no one would ever vote, but so i'm used to shorter pieces-- but here's one instance where maybe more content could've been better.


    pest and proof- perhapsthere are people who really enjoy your style but i don't. i thought the rhyme structure made for a choppy flow and a verse that was, overall, difficult to get into.


    vote=dic
    2nd place=vern and awe
    3rd place 200proof & pestilence

    what's ridiculous, in my opinion, is that we had the win by no show but instead the mods changed all of the matches around to make it work out that we had a 3 way and facing someone other than the originally scripted matchups. I'm not bitching, just concerned with the way things were manipulated and how it potentially has effected the outcome of this tournament.

    not that we have anything to prove, obviously

    this was a cool story, kind of like the rstl's equivalent of dazed and confused, a cool story, interesting and creative, but the scheme didn't appeal to me and i thought it hurt the flow and ending up feeling basic.

    verndish

    i thought verns section was more a convoluted mess grasping at what it wanted to say rather than evoking clarity and telling me, despite the solid flow and aptitude in writing the message was more or less lost in a sea of wording that to me hopes the reader with skim over quickly enough to presume what's written makes sense, while awe's was nicer content-wise actually making a few nice points in relation to the topic but sporting a simpler and less attractive scheme. For the caliber of writers in this pair this was a piss poor effort to be honest, I'm disappointed, the pair didn't feel cohesive in terms of their parts and the final product leaving alot to be desired.

    momsdic

    dope verse, i thought the narrative of both had a sort of edgy wit and flair to it that while maintaining a dramatic tone had a bit of tongue-in-cheek and fun that i vicariously was able to enjoy, the writing was great, it was a creative approach and sick scheme, very entertaining i was hooked the whole way.

    spray pesto on momsdic and serve it as vernsdish, cuz that's what the end result is, dic and momma took this easily, outspraying them in every facet of their cum-guzzlin' lips.

    [hide]great effort all of you. I have to give it to Vern and Awedishin tho. the piece was a blast to read. all the way through it had me caught. you integrated your topic very well and the flow was so easy to read. no double reads or pauses. it was all there. very well done and solid. second Is Dic and Moms. although it was like reading the lyrical version of Top Gun it was really capturing and overall more solid than Pestilence and 200proofs drop. I lke it how you continued each others verses as you switched off it helped with the reading and brought unity to the piece, but by about half way i just wanted to be done with the piece. there were some dope one liners in there but Dic and Moms came through with capturing matierial.
