VillageRam is not the worst person
Where are the great MCs?

Ored/Day was one of the only good battles ive seen lately and im not a big fan of wordplay for wordplay's sake which both of these dudes rely on almost exclusively. That's NAGL for battle rap right now tbh.

Where are the all around MCs? I'm looking for a battler to emerge with bars, crowd control, jokes, personals, flow and authenticity and I can't think of anybody currently in the game who fits the bill. there are a handful of dudes who HAD it in their prime but who is really killing it TODAY? am I missing something?

Prove me wrong. Recommend a recent battle featuring a great all around MC. t

nobody appreciates any of that now a days. everyone that did it has been forced to do mostly wordplay.

That's why I think Bill Collector vs. E-Ness was the best battle of 2015 tbh. While it seems like a majority of the game is trying to do word association (due to newer fans looking down on performance for some weird reason), Bill/Ness was a battle that had a little bit of everything, and was entertaining as fuck.

Go for it. It feels like a nice throwback battle, as far as both Bill and Ness just rapping their asses off, and it feeling like a fun battle. Shout out to Don't Flop for that.

But guys like you and Pass etc. should keep doing what you do. Eventually things will swing around again (They kinda already are beginning to) and then the guys that kept it real will benefit. I'm seen it happen in every style of entertainment ever.

very few fit into all the categories you listed.

hollow and lux need no explanation.

pass, but idk if crowd control is an attribute of his outside of cali.

shotgun suge, calicoe, and bigg k.

pat stay embodies everything you listed when he comes prepared. i was kinda surprised by how well he did in the UK and how receptive the crowd was to his material. he dun goofed by half-assing that calicoe battle. he probably could've proved us wrong about whether or not he'd have the same power in the states as he does in canada... or maybe not.

man, remyd had all the attributes you listed. i think he had potential to be one of the greatest even with a low key status.

to me pat stay doesnt embody a single element that was listed tbh, i dont think doing well in the uk means much since from what ive seen their crowd looks like theyre really polite and not that wild at all esppecially if theres a foreign rapper they like coming out to perform

surprised Illmac hasn't been mentioned

but yeah the "wordplay" stuff has been done to death for a minute now, still waiting for battlers to stop (over)doing that shit. i know Daylyt vs O-Red was technically a very good battle but it felt like a chore for me to sit through it precisely because of that reason. shit just makes me cringe now even when it's well done.

Ice has the presence of an MC for sure but his shit is so left field.
Some of these other guys are good mcs (illmac, calicoe, suge) but i'd hesitate to call any of them great.
guys like Lux, Pat, Verb used to be great so I still watch their battles and am usually disappointed. so many guys should have take a page from soul kahn and quit while they were ahead. I think theyve all threatened to quit, but they all keep coming back. junkies for punishment.
