If you suck at battle rapping and nobody likes u why battle rap ?

Question I thought about while I was eating at the cafeteria of the local casino.

If u suck at battle rap AND nobody likes u, why battle ??
Like here's an example, even though Dizaster is garbage to a lot of people, he's also arguably a legend n a lot of people like him......

Ppl like real deal and he's solid for a good performance, so I understand why he continues to do it cuz it's not exactly difficult for him to get booked somewhere... it might not be the big guys but it'll be somewhere

Ok so wat about the Wird of Pley's, the frak's, all them

Nobody likes them, so why ???
Ppl like Loe Pesci, Okwerdz, are smart. They don't over stay their welcome, and they stuck to what they know... u never heard pesci even asking to be on URL, okwerdz called out the east coast but that earned their respect...

But anyway, the wire of pley's, the frak's, the nebula's we all know they suck, they know they suck, and yet they still rap.

There's a group of ppl even above them, the krome's, the aftershock's, the xcel's where they are pure trash but for some reason a small amount of ppl consistently like them.... so they have a reason to keep battling...

Everyone starts out wack no matter what it is your doing. But after doing it for a while you probably should have made some sort of progression. The guys you mentioned are wack, no doubt! Only reason I can think that they might continue would be that it's fun for them and they might even get paid a small amount of money for doing it. I guess I can't front on that.

yeah, battle rap suffers a lot from hobbyists. Too many people are viewing it as a casual distraction from work without any love for it. They attend enough events, make a few friends with the big guys and become reliable enough that they make it on a big card as a filler MC, then people are tricked into thinking because they were on a big card they must be good... and the cycle continues.

Honestly 90 percent of success in battle rap is being consistent in your mediocracy. See Diaz for a casestudy. Never was horrible, never great, but always turned up and performed to a mediocre level. As a result he got some decent names and shockingly a championship win!

Look at it this way, there would be no top tier if there wasn't a bottom tier.

There needs to be a lower tier for people to practice and get better, for talent to grow, thus creating your top mc's. Nobody forces you to watch the less talented Mc's. No need to hate on them, imo.

But does that lower tier really need to consist of literally a thousand people? I don't really know the answer to that question, but it really does seem like the supply of battle rap content is far greater than the demand.

By your statements you obviously ain't really a kotd fan and have no clue of there fans so commenting on kotd battlers seems silly

Frak got a fan base especially on the west coast
Most of the dudes you mentioned have a fan base
Except for prob wird
But he can be good and has his little yunh Republican click to boost him

How about sticking to what u know its not kotd battkes

Also Frak has a fan base from his records. Before I'd even heard him rap, I'd heard his material on a mixtape. Frak would be mad not to continue battle rapping/ blogging as it is helping him make money and get exposure.

just because someone tells you you suck or ur not good at it, does not mean you need to quit. if u lose like 5 battles in a row and u still suck or aren't showing signs of improvement its time to take a hint.

that being said.

the rush.
the feeling of being in the cafeteria in 9th grade, crowd around you, holding their breath waiting to hear ur rebuttal, girls giggling...that feeling of invincibility man...hard to duplicate, the competitive drive, everything man battle rap is everything and then some

Ive wondered this, whos watching all of these battles? Then I see the views and its obviously nobody, but why are they even happening?

I'm not even talking about people that would even get posted here for fodder, I see leagues that have events in backyards or living rooms, and then the 7 people there post about how every battle was classic, and the footage gets 12 views.

Why?

Cuntoffs are Jumps is not the worst person
EK kinda covered this in one of his mystical BOTZ reviews - if you think you're good at something but other people tell you you're not, you'll tell yourself you're still developing, they don't understand it / see my potential or I'm much better than I was last time, next time I'll do x, it's a form of madness essentially, a denial of reality

It's a subjective art form (as all are) I rap, that maybe more than most slams pretty quickly into objective reality - you suck at rapping, so whether you continue or not comes down to what degree you absorb that reality and are prepared to accept it.

and the impression that I get sometimes is that people think it will be easy when it's clearly not.

+ it's fun to call people faggots I guess.

that being said.

the rush.
the feeling of being in the cafeteria in 9th grade, crowd around you, holding their breath waiting to hear ur rebuttal, girls giggling...that feeling of invincibility man...hard to duplicate, the competitive drive, everything man battle rap is everything and then some
Let me guess, your palms were sweaty and for lunch you had just eaten moms spaghetti?

Yes obviously talent isn't divided evenly. So only a few will have the talent and willpower of a top tier. No matter how big the pool, only a few will be top tier. Since you have to have talent and the practice to be great.

And then there is the optimism bias making people overestimate their own skills. Ask a random group of battle rappers if they are above average and 70% (probably higher since No one even admits defeat) will answer affirmitively, which is statistically impossible.
