Daylyt

Daylight is a very interesting case in battle rap. Some feel that he is very calculated with everything that he does. Others feel that he is doing a bunch of random fuckery in order to get attention. Iíve seen some people claim that what he is doing isnít working since his views are not as high as some other battlers.

If you examine where Daylyt is from, then it is impressive how far he has come. The average cat from Watts doesnít have a nice crib in Irvine. Irvine is one of the Safest cities in America. I have a lot of people out in L.A., Watts is a war zone. Daylight is from Jordan Downs Projects, home of the Grape Street Crips. The thing that makes Watts so dangerous is that there are so many different street gangs within a small radius. The main rivals of the Grape St. Crips are the Bounty Hunter Bloods (the biggest blood set in L.A) and the PJ Watts Crips. Both hate the Grape St Crips so strongly that they team up against them. A blood and a crip set teaming up against some other crips. You can imagine how Daylyt must have grown up. A lot of homies dying, a lot of violence. He likely put in a lot of work himself. He may not view things the way the average battle fan does. He grew up in a war zone. It wouldnít be surprising if he has a couple of screws loose.

Daylight is not the most popular battle rapper, but he is arguably maximizing how big of a name he could be within the culture. I say that because no other battlers with a similar skill set that started after him are as popular as he is. The only battler with a similar skill set who is a bigger name than he is is Lux. There are multiple factors contributing to Lux being more popular than Daylyt. But the primary reason is the fact that Lux was on Smack DVD and did it first. Being from NY doesnít hurt either. Lux and Daylyt are a lot more similar than the average battle rap fan realizes.

Daylight manipulates people sooo easily. He does the same tactics over and over, but people bite every time. Anytime something catches widespread attention, he attaches himself to it. I.E: Meek/Drake beef, Norbes gets punched, Ronda Rousy gets knocked out, Kshine/dot mob situation. He has also consistently performed antics in battles. In my opinion no one should ever be upset with him ever again. When someone shows you what they are believe them. Its to the point that if you book, agree to battle against, or pay to see Daylyt you should understand who he is and what may happen. No more complaining about his antics. I actually feel the same way about Clips and his lack of preparation.

Whatís your opinion on Daylyt?

daylyt's cool. his heel antics are sometimes amusing and the reason he wouldn't be where he is on his skill alone is because he's not that good lol. he raps like these PG guys

Does how far he's come have anything to do with battle rap though? He's said in numerous blogs and interviews how he's good without it and other people have backed that statement up.

Read this post in the voice of a game of thrones character and its 10x more entertaining.

"Can you imagine a blood set and a crip set teaming up against the Grape Street Lannisters? Lord, imagine the fuckery that would have caused to young Daylyt's psyche. My word, your grace."

Average battle fan: I want to be entertained [bars, performance, etc]

Daylyt: I want attention [any publicity is good publicity]


I don't know the guy personally, but he doesn't come off as a fuckin genius, he just looks like he's trying to get as big as possible to stay relevant and transition into other shit. Not hard to understand.

In terms of building his brand (u don't become a successful battle rapper by winning battles. That's 8 mile shit) he is 1 of the best

He's below lux n mook but in the same class as diz and arsonal. Huge fan base.. he built himself like kotd been telling battlers to


OP is super super weird

What puts him in the same class and Diz and Arsonal? Hes like 20K followers short of both of them on twitter. No where near Arsonals average views, 100K+ short of Diz. He's got what? 1 million viewed battle?

Day is basically on par with people like Verb.

Daylyt is enigmatic, but at the same time so is everyone with a personality. I don't think he has some master plan with battler rap. He seems to just do whatever he can for attention, but to some extent so does every battle rapper. As to his actual skill level as a battler he has a great rapping ability, but his verses are not direct enough for me to even call him top tier. I often feel like he's rapping the same verse over and over again despite him not recycling any bars.He has been a part of some great battles and his antics will keep him on the forefront of any battle fan's mind and garner attention from those outside of battle rap.

You can't expect the people who frequent this site to be of high intellectual caliber. You or I could read an OP such as yours in under 90 seconds but you're asking a lot to expect them to read anything that is more complex than "_____ sucks" or "____ is the GOAT"

Daylyt is a mixed bag. His had some amazing battles like against B Magic and Mad Child. But some of the shit he does is just straight up corny to the point where it pisses me off. I wanna see him Drop crazy bars! Not get naked, rub ball sweat on Canadians, whip who's dick out etc

Day is basically on par with people like Verb.
If u averaging hundreds of thousands of views and have tens of thousands of followers...not to mention interview n vlog views... ur at the top of the top (imo)
I put verb with those guys too

U got mook and lux

Then the top tiers..ars and diz first I could think of (don't watch url)

Then them peeps who have had hundreds of thousands of views but don't average it n got under 10k twitters. That's my 3 categories

But that wasn't the point point is he got to that level not by winning rap battles but by building his name in other uh...unique ways

I like to give people more credit than that. His post wasn't exactly hard to understand at all. I don't think people here are too stupid to not know the words. If anyone didn't read it I think it would be because they don't care enough to have a lengthy discussion about Daylyt in the first place.

If people want to take part in a real discussion that im creating its cool..if not then my threads probably aren't the type of threads for them.

If you examine where Daylyt is from, then it is impressive how far he has come. The average cat from Watts doesnít have a nice crib in Irvine. Irvine is one of the Safest cities in America. I have a lot of people out in L.A., Watts is a war zone. Daylight is from Jordan Downs Projects, home of the Grape Street Crips. The thing that makes Watts so dangerous is that there are so many different street gangs within a small radius. The main rivals of the Grape St. Crips are the Bounty Hunter Bloods (the biggest blood set in L.A) and the PJ Watts Crips. Both hate the Grape St Crips so strongly that they team up against them. A blood and a crip set teaming up against some other crips. You can imagine how Daylyt must have grown up. A lot of homies dying, a lot of violence. He likely put in a lot of work himself. He may not view things the way the average battle fan does. He grew up in a war zone. It wouldnít be surprising if he has a couple of screws loose.

Daylight is not the most popular battle rapper, but he is arguably maximizing how big of a name he could be within the culture. I say that because no other battlers with a similar skill set that started after him are as popular as he is. The only battler with a similar skill set who is a bigger name than he is is Lux. There are multiple factors contributing to Lux being more popular than Daylyt. But the primary reason is the fact that Lux was on Smack DVD and did it first. Being from NY doesnít hurt either. Lux and Daylyt are a lot more similar than the average battle rap fan realizes.

Daylight manipulates people sooo easily. He does the same tactics over and over, but people bite every time. Anytime something catches widespread attention, he attaches himself to it. I.E: Meek/Drake beef, Norbes gets punched, Ronda Rousy gets knocked out, Kshine/dot mob situation. He has also consistently performed antics in battles. In my opinion no one should ever be upset with him ever again. When someone shows you what they are believe them. Its to the point that if you book, agree to battle against, or pay to see Daylyt you should understand who he is and what may happen. No more complaining about his antics. I actually feel the same way about Clips and his lack of preparation.

Whatís your opinion on Daylyt?

He does? That's interesting. I never actually noticed.

I wouldn't be surprised if he read the 48 Laws OF Power. It is very popular. Even if he didn't a lot of the things said in the book are pretty obvious. The best thing about it are the historical references in it.

I don't know the guy personally, but he doesn't come off as a fuckin genius, he just looks like he's trying to get as big as possible to stay relevant and transition into other shit. Not hard to understand.
I dnno about genius but some of the stuff he does is actually pretty clever but a lot of people in battle rap don't really get satyr. That K Shine/Rain tune he did was hilarious.
He does also do shit that would fall into what you're saying but I think describing him as just an "attention seeker" or someone that's just tryna get views is bit off the mark. He's not at Mac Lethal levels.
