“Top tier”

Top tier is, seemingly, subjective but to me it’s more objective. To me, it’s a monetary thing... for instance, diz isn’t in my top 15 but I acknowledge that he has a huge following and has been paid like a top tier battler so he’s top tier.

Ty law is dope and nice with it but he’s not getting paid as much as disaster (I DONT THINK) so he’s not top tier.... even if I think he’s one of the nicest doing it.

Top tier, to me, is about opportunity and what you’re worth...not necessarily skill level.

I’d call ty law “fire” but not top tier.

i think top tier is based on 2 things: views and being relevant in America. u could say money too but we're not really privy to that and rappers lie....shit, people lie lol

Nitty had 4 straight million view battles on URL so that makes him top tier yes i dont care who his opponents were

top tier is when all the mid tiers wanna battle you to try to get out of the mid tier

I'm glad RMBVA has this definition down when the rest of the battle world is so wrong on it. It doesn't matter if I feel Murda Mook is a great battle rapper, he's undeniably god tier because his popularity and reputation necessitate it

Money isn't necessary a good measure. Some rappers have a gimmick that gets them paid, but doesn't objectively mean they are that great.

Uno Lavoz for the lower tiers and Danny Myers for the uppper tiers spring to mind.

Murda Mook lost to Jones and came off hella corny imo. But he did 5-0 Iron and 3-0 Lux so that counts for something

As far as definition top tier.. My definition is gonna be different from yalls cause most of yall think mediocre battlers are fucking amazing and we'll have opposing opinions I can already tell after lurking here for awhile. Keep up the good work aka interest though

Mr Wavy is not top tier because he's not currently relevant in America. Top Tier membership is renewed on an annual basis.

Mook can be not active and be top tier because of relevancy. Mr Wavy, not so much.

Mr Wavy doesn't get views. Those battles are high because of Shine and John John. Similarly, Dumbfoundead vs Illusion Z has a million views, but that doesn't make Illusion Z relevant.
