So is this scene still around? I see a new KOTD event is coming up will it be worth checking out? Sad to see battle rap died tbh shit was poppin for a good 4 years or so. I think it was inevitable though I mean there's only so many ways you can talk about shooting someone or fuckin their girl.

The culture never dies my guy, it just dwindles. I thought it was dead back in 08 then started watching GT vids back when they thought 10k views was a lot. Chill out. But it is over saturated with plebs.

How embarrassing. I like Rone but who would want to be on a Dunkin Donuts commercial?

Im only lucky enough to have met a battle rap fan in real life. I have no interest in meeting a battler cause they they get enough exposure. Have to say not a big fan of famous guys too.

OP still hasn't said why Rone was in the Dunkin Donuts. Sticking his finger through the holes of donuts trying to work out why that gives him traumatic flashbacks of something?...

battle rap will keep going the numbers may dwindle but the people who really wanna watch it will keep watching the battles are still at a decent enough level to keep me interested i wish there was more personality. i feel like the writing is better than it ever has been but it's missing that spark

Lux vs Arsonal happens next week on Udubb its an NYC V Jersey card

URL has a smallroom card the same day with Jc, big terrance and some others. Qleen vs Reed Dollaz going down

The KOTD event is happening today iirc. Chilla v illmac, saurus v clips, ars v solomon, bigg k v pat stay. Xcel v oops on the undercard. Sno in a 2v2

Basically not sure why you think battlerap is dead

Caustic was more the symptom than the problem itself.

Caustic was fantastic destroying useless MCs, but KOTD didn't understand the appeal of the bully guy picking on the wack and why that was entertaining. Instead of just letting him pick on terrible MCs, they tried to put him up against talented MCs and, of course, it wasn't interesting at all.

See also Pat Stay for the same thing.

Charron is kinda the same thing too. Whenever he battles with rappers who take themselves way too seriously (Unan etc), we could laugh as they lost to a borderline retarded nerdy guy and it was seriously hilarious. Compare that to the current 'let's find the blackest person we can find' awkward gimmick and it is another classic example of KOTD not getting why anyone enjoyed him in the first place.
