How will battle rap history remember Dumbfoundead?

Random Friday food for thought.

Dumb was one of the guys that got me into the Grindtime era of battling; before I had only really peeped Fight Klub and some early SMACK stuff.

His Conceited battle is a testament to both's crossover appeal, but in that one and the battle he took with Diz, his style never really changed and I think it proved he wasn't really fit for this era. Would you want to see a new Dumb battle? What do you all think is Dumb's legacy as a battler?

Honestly I think this part of your post exactly explains Dumb's legacy and how he will be remembered.

Dude's battle style is really influential and I don't recall seeing anything like it before I saw him in the WRCs. Think he'll be remembered as one of the best of his era, and certainly one of the few battle rappers who was able to transition into a successful music career.

With a boner

...he lost to Con, Diz ate his soul, as soon as battlers start writing battle verses about how they’re bigger than battling it’s over - so no interest in future battles but during 2nd WRC’s + vs Wapps and Juice etc. just wanted to see what he’d come out with, I guess his legacy is one of the most creative writers in the early written format who managed to incorporate dope freestyles and (putting old man hat on) had HIS OWN DISTINCT PERSONALITY AND STYLE.

Dumb will be remembered fondly by pretty much every battle fan except the ones who only appreciate the street side of battling.

Dumbfoundead is one of the guys I fr waited on a battle for. Still a legend imo. Just a little disappointed by his boojiness but it is what it is

edit: actually one of the battlers back then where I legit cried in his WRC's /funny moments

he always used to say battling to him was just "clowning in rap form"

so i think that applies in this case, but his legacy is bigger than just some jokes of course

“Quick! Someone grab a Thesaurus!”

Mantix said it best though.

Also, the highest viewed battler outside of smack. At least a million on every solo written battle.

His fight Klub battles, signing to ruff Ryder, and then getting me to want to learn Chinese.
