QQumber is not the worst person
Haven't watched battle rap since 2015, what have I missed?

The last battle I remember watching was Fresco v Saurus which was really fucking good. I don't know why I completely stopped watching battle rap as a whole after that, like why would you after watching that battle? But I did so whatever.

3 years later: The other day my brain told me to search up Hitman's remix v John John and it was a nice throwback. I still have no idea wtf Smack was thinking with the crotch shots smh. After that my eyes caught the SM8 announcements. Idk who Nu Jerzey Twork is but from the clip I saw he looked crazy. Is he good?

Then I found about Decade and at this point I still haven't watched a battle since Fresco v Saurus, it's just been the Hitman remix, SM8 & Decade announcements. My mindset about getting back into battle rap was still very casual, the Ars v Twork trailer sparked a little something but then YouTube recommended this Fresco interview to me:



Loaded up CSGO and had this playing in the background. I didn't expect much but it was actually great and well worth a watch or listen. Fresco talks about Ars manipulating WorldStar views to get popular and regrets not doing the same because he knew the trick. Meeting Diz for the first time, picking him up from a gas station with Diz proceeding to tell him about how he was a professional soccer player and kicked this guy in the head at the gas station. Buying GrindTime and selling it to KOTD. Not liking Soul, thinks he's smug and dirty. Being confused as to why corny Iron Solomon was getting all the reactions against E Ness when Ness was the one actually killing it. Not being able to battle Bender because they were both popping off at different times and some other good shit.

But yeah, after it finished I knew I needed to get back into this. So what's been happening? Any breakout stars? Classics from KOTD, URL, DF or any other league? Sleeper hits? Beef? Let me know.

For now I'm gonna rewatch Cal v Lux. I said Cal won that when it first dropped and ima say it again it 44 minutes.

Well, The Bunker on KOTD in 2016 gave battle rap a lot of great battles for one.

Louder for the folks in the back (/denial ). As for the thread at hand...

The Smack Vol. events have been a really cool development, totally different environment for URL battles and some great matches came out of them (Rum vs. Iron was a lot of people's BOTY for 2017, Twork and Verb one of my favourites from this year.

Watch is a big one, especially for keeping you interested in battling + revisiting some classics

The Bunker, similar to Smack Vol. was a unique venue that catered to footage and generated some phenomenal matches (QP/Fresco, B Magic/E Ness, and Bender (RIP)/Fredo jump to mind)

Ruin Your Day has hosted a couple one-off battles in various unique locations that have been uniformly excellent (Pigsty vs. Random>>>)

Basically @AVOCADO been killing it baha, kinda wild just seeing that written out
