Surely can't be worth 20K, can it?

It's a solid deal.

If anyone has been contemplating purchase, and has ambitions of doing something big with it... hit me up. I'd go half.

Actually with what HipHopDX has been doing with it, it's gaining rank and value. Their analytics went crazy just from covering Ether.

According to Sharath Cherian, it's not for sale, so they don't even realize that they have it up for auction. Anyone could buy it right now and basically kill their business.

I don't see it being super profitable unless it's backed by Drake, Busta, Diddy or some other very well-off and well known battle rap fan promoting the hell out of it.

Mind you, I hope whoever does buy it banks. This is still a growing culture, and if/when it becomes mainstream, we can all say we remember when it was being sold for "only" 20 g's.

Well hiphopDX is about as big as you can get tho, not sure it could be backed any better...

I thought @BattleRapChris is with hiphopdx? So battlerap.com is not owned by hiphopdx?

It's owned by Cheri Media aka Hip Hop DX. They apparently don't know it's up for auction though because they said it wasn't for sale, but it is. So either they are just lying because they don't want to seem like culture vultures, or they really don't know that anyone can go and buy their domain right now and shut their site down. Seems like they'd have to know it's up for sale because they just extended the auction today.

Thanks for your concern @versesmc.

We're looking into it. GoDaddy told us it's their issue. Something about not clearing caches or something. Not entirely sure. BattleRap.com is not for sale.

Let's break it down:

Salary is comfortable enough that I could leave my job at Microsoft to run the site.

Not a culture vulture. Been working my ass off (for free until I took this job) to document the culture and create lasting infrastructure for a scene that barely has any. Just paid $200 to keep TOBattleBlog.com up for another two years because I feel like it's an important archive.

Not a semi. Take that however you want.

Absolutely we're still boys. But why don't you ever call just to say what's up?

Glad to hear the beard is getting some love. Norbes told me it looks like it smells bad.

I don't really comb it but I am looking for suggestions on oils to use to soften it up a bit.

On another note, want to be the site's new lead interviewer? You ask all the hard-hitting questions.

Sounds like they are giving you the run around. The only way to even get listed there is for the owner to have an auction members account and list it. All bids are legally binding too, so if someone actually bought it right now for the $20k buy it now price, they would legally own it. Whether it's your guys intent to sell it or not, it is for sale.

Whoever has the auction account should be able to just remove it. It's definitely not a caching issue because it was listed under an entirely different listing for the past 180 days and was just re-listed under a new listing today with an entirely different ID. Seems like someone would have had to login to the auction account and re-list it. Couldn't imagine GoDaddy re-listing domains they don't own. Would create a pretty crazy legal mess.

honestly, i was telling chris not even a couple months ago how I was proud someone was providing coverage of battle rap in a legit way. I had never heard of battlerap.com before, and all of a sudden chris did an awesome job of putting some legit interviews, great coverage, and several times broke news on there regarding our scene. Now I check it often whenever something happens in battling, and its become something the scene lacked. Which is a reliable source with some real journalism being applied, and at the same time offering quality and unique content with interviews, blogs, articles that no one was doing or organizing till he came along.

I'd love to see more content on there. If the site indeed does come up for sale, I'd definitely be down to buy it, or at least invest. I wanna support the work Chris is doin. He's the right guy for the site and he's running it professionally making the site a legit-online authority on battling.
