"Verb actually requested The Saurus"

I liked this battle, and the idea of it, but a few things are kind of strange to me.

People (mainly A LOT west coast guys) were like "Woah, Verb actually requested TheSaurus". Like it was some crazy honor, and that legitimized TheSaurus.

This type of language is demeaning.

I've seen interviews with west coast cats that think it's an honor for Verb to mention Thesaurus.

Thesaurus been a staple, and for Verb to cosign him is cool, but why should that legitimize him?

There is some weird inferiority complex in there that I didn't create, but I see.

Do you guys see what I am saying? Can some one articulate it better please?

I understand where you're coming from. I can only answer this with my own prospective cause I haven't heard too much downplaying.

One thing that I saw that annoyed me is that Chris Unbias for the first time since god knows when was watching the PPV and was straight shitting on The Saurus on twitter, that was unwarranted. I know they trade shots on twitter but that was mad petty.

Overall people will have different outlooks on battle rap based on what they watch most. for all I know I'm KOTD bias but I'd like to think I look at battle rap from the wider spectrum.

Any examples of people downplaying The Saurus in this context?

most of the talk leading up to this battle was a lot of west coast guys trying to defend the fact that thesaurus was getting verb. "Verb actually called thesaurus out". like it was an honor. instead of them recognizing Thesaurus as a boss, and acting like he's beneath verb.

Hmm, I think it was meant well but came out in poor taste. I can see how supporters on the URL side or whatever questioning the battle so I think it was to try to shut them up but came out the wrong way. I'm pretty sure it was lush one that said "verb actually called thesaurus out" if I'm not mistaken.

Yeah I felt like his boys were making him look bad by trying to defend the idea of them battling.

No one was like "Verb gonna get cooked, he hasn't caught a nice bag since Cortez, and that was years ago, Thesaurus been the most consistent dude."

They were all on some "wow respect to Verb for actually taking Thesaurus, that was so cool of him."..."if Verb shows up...."

no no;

the thing that's interesting about "verb requesting Saurus " is that --

a )this implies verb would actually try

b ) Pete (and da fans ) been wanting this battle for years and thought it might not ever happen , so for verb to actually want this battle means more than just the league setting it up and paying verb to battle him which --

c ) means a whole lot more when u look at verbs track record on those west coast Kotd battles (minus Marv I guess ) where verb has taken L's and they've all been trivialized by verb fans [and white guy/west coast hat0rz] as "he didn't even care about it so it hardly ''''''matters''''' " sentiments

and yea , It might seem insulting in some kind of way that its even NOTEWORTHY that verb wanted Pete , but its actually just noteworthy that verb isn't as stuck up as SOME might think and does have that much respect for petes legendary status , as I DONT KNOW (personally ) how serious verb took illmac or even if he had any respect for that battle they had - when illmac is also a wc legend in his own right ofc

He already battled Caustic , Thesaurus , Dizaster , Danny's myers , and Daylyt tho so I don't get why the west would even care about an Aye Verb battle in that way. It's not the first time he been out there or battled a west coast cat.

The Bunker is a cool league, and it makes sense that Verb would want to battle there.. it also makes sense that he'd want to Battle The Saurus there since he has been one of the top guys in the west for a while. But yeah, if you are saying that people are saying that it is some kind of honor for the saurus to be asked to battle Verb on his home territory then they are wrong. Arguably, the Saurus is doing Verb a favor by letting him get shine in a new popping league. On the other hand, if Verb asked for Pete at Summer Madness then that would be a compliment. Both guys are at the high end of their demographic.

Because Saurus is not in Verb's weight class. Fans of KOTD may not know that, but fans of battle rap as a whole understand. The last time I watched Verb take on one of those guys it was Dizaster and the matchup was very one sided without Verb even trying.

I think I went with the "Verb actually requested TheSaurus" bit, just because the two previous time he'd been in L.A., he wasn't very good, and there were some fans wondering why Verb was getting another shot at a top name from out here.

In the grand scheme of battle rap not related specifically to the "Fresh Coast", Thesaurus is the nobody and Aye Verb is the legend.

Probably even to some West coast dudes. It's just that simple divide, imo.
