URLS next business venture should be...

Owning and operating their own venue. Them owning the bar would help a lot for revenue since they own the fucking place Tbh I'm sure it wouldn't be hard for them to get some investors to do because nyc is expensive but why not out side or somewhere like the Bronx im sure the realesate is slightly lightly cheaper(one would think) Shit and when they're not throwing events they could be promoters and have artist perform on the world most respected stage.


I hope all major leagues make that step to further push battle rap and end a lot of the fuckery that happens at events.



But what about the bunker... It's still reeeeeaaaly green give avo and jpro smite time to turn brown and they'll be think the same. I really hope that's what they're thinking and no longer putting money in the next mans pocket.

Don't think OP has really thought this idea through. Just go out and buy a bar to throw your events at lol. Doubt SMACK is as rich as he makes himself out to be. Buying a bar capable of holding 1000+ people would cost a fortune. And seeing he has zero experience owning a bar I doubt investors would be jumping at the chance to get on board.

Its a bit different to renting a wherehouse to throw battles at. Which actually wouldn't be such a bad Idea but they'd have to be doing regular events to make it work. Would also have to have the capacity to hold like 1000 people. I'm not sure what the legality of something like that is though.

I really don't understand this whole "make URL more like kotd" nonsense that people who don't like URL keep suggesting. There's already one kotd, why do we need two? I don't see how eliminating the things that make the platforms unique is gonna be helpful to anyone, and I def don't see it as any kind of improvement.

that's true, but I think the reason this is dumb is more that buying a bar/club/venue in New York City would be absurdly expensive. if it was feasible it'd be a good idea, but it's not, so it isn't. I don't think owning a venue is an idea KOTD can take ownership of.

Lol, I mean, it is kinda a silly idea for that reason too. Buying warehouse space is one thing. Buying and then operating a night club, getting all the permits and licenses, in NYC no less, is an immense undertaking.

URLs next business venture should be throwing ppv events. Notice how they strayed away from it. I think because it dents their YouTube views. They should learn how to monetize ppv correctly

especially because the only time they've had venue issues is with the maaajor events. it's not like they're going to lease a place as big as Webster Hall. the Born Legacy events seem like they're doing fine for venue space.

It's called an investment... BUY spot and convert it. Did I say it wa easy..no BUT if you want to expand a business you gotta spend money. an I mentioned the bar because it's fast quick way to make money. Ever see a restaurant with no bar??? That's because it's a cash cow.


Smack url needs to own and operate they're own venue.

seems like they're not really interested in doing big shows outside of manhattan. so if they're not even really tryin to do brooklyn i highly doubt they would jump to owning a venue in the bx.

its url, they cant just get a cheap wearhouse space and do pit style battles every time. that means actually purchasing a real venue and owning and operating it which would be a huge undertaking to be honest. they would have to start paying insurance which is rnt as fuck according to x factor but overall nah this aint gonna work since url needs a 1000-2000 person venue. its a heck of a dream homey but no its not realistic so you can stop trying to defend ur idea, no one will judge you. all these cliches are all well and good but nah they dont hold up in this case

The big events should stay at big event spaces such as music halls etc. The smaller events such as PGs are fine at record stores or on rooftop spaces etc.

I think Smack is working on an 'if it ain't broke' system and that makes sense. Why buy an absurdly expensive bar or club when the current model is making money and good product?

Youtube views don't make most of the money, the sponsorship by Exclusiv Vodka does. I imagine that is why a PPV is so difficult as they have to please their sponsor above all else. Exclusiv wants exclusive content and so they get it.

I like how casually running a fully operational bar in NYC is being presented

top priorities for battle leagues in 2017:

- booking top tier names
- making a shift schedule that is fair to all the bartenders
- correspondence with local breweries
- keeping the peanuts stocked
- finding new talent (battlers & karaoke regulars)

Haha! Honestly I skip the promo stuff at the beginnings of battles. I'm usually like 'it's a URL mainstage battle, let's skip forward by about 8 minutes to get through the B/S'

What I wish URL (or anybody) would do is recruit more talent from the South. It's so weird to me how the region has been mostly neglected in modern battle rap, even though arguably the two biggest new names in URL are from the Triangle.

This idea would be so much more feasible if they were buying property in NJ, but Smack of course would always want to operate in the heart of the NYC boroughs.

What WASN'T suggested though, was that Smack, Beasley, Norbes, and Chico enter a true partnership to own "A" property. Meaning they would have somewhere small scale to host their events not at a loss, and they could still seek larger, Webster Hall-ish venues for their most marquee things like NOME.

For the in between cards, ie Born Legacy? They really, really should own that spot, as that has proven to be a popular event and I'm sure they break bread on that business model.

i mean los angeles isn't exactly "cheap" either.

here's a warehouse to lease (i dont own the bunker) that is actually cheaper than the bunker by a pretty significant amount and its the same size and has a parking lot (which the bunker does not have). http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/off/5749831207.html

not trying to say this the right way for URL to move or any other league, all i know is that it was one of the smartest things i did for us down in LA. dealing with venues sucks in all ways shapes and forms and leasing our own was really good for a number of reasons, now it might not be financially profitable yet but it is a building block to something greater and thats all that matters to me personally.

I was hoping you'd chime in. I didn't want to compare the bunker to smack because is not the same and different coasts. They need to host their pgs and smaller events. They proved they can sell out tickets. I'm sure url will be in the red for a bit but what bar/restaurant isn't. They really need to look into this because they even said it them selves booking a venue for hip hop is hard in nyc. Well you know what OWN A VENUE TO BOOK HIPHOP.


@AVOCADO is buying and owning property in the future???

What are you talking about they dont have trouble booking PG events that are the size of the bunker event. Avacado does not own an event either he is renting.

URl's problem is booking larger venues. Which would cost a ridiculous amount to own. Some of you fans have little to no business sense

Clearly you don't. Do you understand investments. A) invest in a building b) show business model maybe go the route on renting a space like avo and jpro do. GARUNTEE they make more money on bunker events then they did by renting a stage and dealing with promoters c) fans will pay 100+ to be one of the exclusive ones at bl10 wearing the latest yezzys after waiting in line for 5 days. D) marketing, booking other acts to perform at the only stage that matters...


They know branding and branding "the only stage that matters" is genius for booking other leagues to have their events and having the URLs quality of event and footage. Ohhhh yah charging for the URLs staff to film the battle "respect the shooter"....

i don't know what's in smack's pockets, but i am 99.9% certain that buying and operating property as a battle rap league in NYC is pretty infeasible

They know branding and branding "the only stage that matters" is genius for booking other leagues to have their events and having the URLs quality of event and footage. Ohhhh yah charging for the URLs staff to film the battle "respect the shooter"....

not trying to say this the right way for URL to move or any other league, all i know is that it was one of the smartest things i did for us down in LA. dealing with venues sucks in all ways shapes and forms and leasing our own was really good for a number of reasons, now it might not be financially profitable yet but it is a building block to something greater and thats all that matters to me personally.
holy shit

Do I understand Investments? I have worked for a boutique investment firm for high network clients before

Do I understand putting on events? I have put on a larger event than KOTD or URL ever has

Do I understand Capital expenditures? Just this year I was in charge of procuring millions of dollars worth of equipment for a multi billion dollar company

Is Your Idea stupid? Absolutely

I dont know if that would make it more like KOTD
That shouldn't be something KOTD owns. It would fix allot of venue issues if they could secure some sort of venue.

Copying everything Avo does might be a bit much. But I guess you could say watch what others in your market do and take the positives and find a Smack way to do it.

They just gotta put there own thing on any idea they do

This is SMACK we're talking about. Not an fictional character on a cable program. He isn't Ghost.
