If U R From The Suburbs... Illmac Is Great... If U R From The City... Who Is Illmac?

over time i have pretty much noticed that this is the case... to suburban kids... illmac is top five of all time... but city raised dudes dont even be watchin him... and usually dont even know who he is :funny:

what do u think the reason for that is? if u said because he just spits in a way "only" nerds can relate to... u were correct... that is exactly the reason... for someone like us (city raised people) that shit is so corny its ridiculous... and its unwatchable...

this the very reason that suburban kids rank him top five... but he doesnt even get any views really... its a disconnect and his views only come from the suburbs... if people from the city even know who he is... its a blessing for him lmfao

the best way we can handle this disconnect is to stop trying to compare him with street battlers when they do not do the same thing... for people like illmac, dirty dan, brett badafuco, etc... there needs to be a separate top five... this would eliminate the suburban confusion... why try to compare apples to oranges... when u can compare apples to apples... and oranges to oranges? think about it

Translation: If you live in a dilapidated area in the US (or other nearby nations), you are most likely not familiar with the battle rapper Illmaculate.

Brandon Miller 09-14-2014 06:40 PM

i dont know how "street" or "gangster" u really are. maybe u r extremely hood. Im a white guy from new orleans and now i live in florida. Im not a gangster nor would i want to be one. But ive hung around plenty of bloods and been threatened by gang members multiple times, i do go to the hood alot to buy drugs and hustle chess. seems like someone like u who spends so much time on a message board rarely be in the hood...

Does it ever get tiring trying to push the same points under the guise of "new" topics?

bells720 09-14-2014 06:58 PM

How to get Willy to make multiple threads about you. 1. Be white. 2. Beat someone from St. Louis.

People from the ghetto can't often afford to eat lobster. People from the suburbs eat lobster more often. What does this mean? Lobster is for nerds.

Those are like six years old lol...at least check something reasonably recent to give an honest assessment. Not saying it'll change your mind but be honest.

very true.

i only watch illmac vs bigg k for bigg k's round i think illmac was corny in that tbh

Dear Diary 09-14-2014 07:11 PM

i can confirm that Illmac being top 5 also applies if you're a white guy from Central Europe

Seanzo 09-14-2014 07:13 PM

It's crazy how much the same arguments can be rephrased over and over, yet...people still fall for it and argue.

The great city of Antwerp, which is probably smaller than many suburbs in the US

The Kang 09-14-2014 07:25 PM

I grew up in the suburbs kinda and illmac isnt in my top 15....His last few battles hes taken some cornball angles

nice. i'm from Vienna which is decently big but a very safe city so take that however you want.

Gopher D'Gusto 09-14-2014 07:33 PM

Damn Willy. Got me again. I'm white, from the Northern Virginia suburbs, and Illmac is dope as fuck. Be right back, I'm gonna go sulk and cry about how ashamed I am to be who I am. I cordially invite the rest of battle rap's white fanbase to come join me.

Throwback Mike 09-14-2014 07:50 PM

What if you're not from the suburbs or the city and think Illmac's just decent? Is a town with around 130,000 people a city? Is this grey area the reason why I don't think Illmac's great or terrible? I need to know how to classify myself!

you choose friends on what battlers they enjoy?
illmac is just not for me just like pat stay

The Kang 09-14-2014 08:47 PM

I live in the big city now so I guess that explains why im not as impressed with Illmac as I used to be

sikwidit 09-14-2014 09:13 PM

If you don't like Illmac I can only assume that you don't like originality. You probably only watch battlers who stick to the same old cookie cutter format of writing every battle. Which is cool when you're very good at it but can also get repetitive.

I didn't even know about battle rap when I grew up in a town of 110k!! But now I like Illmaculate living in a trendy urban neighbourhood in a city of 1.1m

IT'S CONFUSING. What parts of my past and my current self contribute to my liking of Illmaculate?! When I like him am I relating to my time in the woods as a child building tree forts? Or are my feelings towards Illmaculate as a battle rapper influenced by the influx of gastro pubs in my neighbourhood and third wave coffee shops?

Or is it the lack of culinary variety that leads to my feelings towards Illmaculate? Is there a chance that having only 8 Pho places within walking distance is affecting my ability to judge battles? Maybe it's the lack of decent, reasonably priced Mexican food, and my subsequent settling for burritos with rice in them.

O-Red said "Tonight ima leave this fag stretched" and we are all just gonna let that shit go wtf ? this forum man

GoldenFlamez 09-14-2014 09:31 PM

Not true, illmac is dope. Thats pretty much all it boils down too.

I don't think Willy would have ever made a thread about Illmac if this wasn't the case because he'd be too busy not watching his battles.

Therefore, Willy is only acknowledging Illmac's relevance by acknowledging Illmac. Rather fascinating when you think about it.

Beaux Jangles 09-14-2014 10:38 PM

thats my biggest problem with this site!!!


too many people with bad opinions from suburbs and fields!!!



farmlife is shameful shit!!!





















































mooooo!!!

Og Smokinstein 09-14-2014 10:57 PM

Illmac is str8... Wouldn't rate him in my top 20.
Im from the block illmac isn't relate-able to me, but that's not the reason i dnt fuck wit'em.
He can spit multis real well but thats about it. He avoids using the other aspect of battle rap.
People say that the street battlers have a one-dimensional style.
But so does illmac..
