What if you want to relax from the battle and text a few friends saying "I'm killing this fool rn hold up." And people are looking at you like you're losing and shit

we live in a screen obsessed society. Fools are looking at their phones from the time they wake up, while they eat, while they shit, all up until they go to bed.

Its terrible how much kids spend time lookin at phones more than lookin at their own loved ones.

It became OK when battles stopped being judged, since they arnt really competitive anymore it's OK cause people would rather see the battlers get off their shit rather than see them choke. In most cases in a judged battle if someone pulled out their phone I bet they would atleast lose that round if not the battle.

To be honest I dont give a shit if it's between your rounds. if its during your round then it's just part of your choke and you've already lost momentum etc, so it's not like it goes unpunished. I'd rather you checked to get back on script then just choked the round out. If you gotta check more than once though just call time.

Again, this comes down to how you view battle rap. If it is competition, then it is a no-no because you are trying to get an sneaky advantage. If you view it as entertainment, then it is no problem as it reduces the potential for stumbling.

I choked vs Lucianno Crakk and fell back on my phone as a quick cue to where I was at. While, its certainly frowned upon, I am pretty shitty at freestyling especially mid battle like that. I would've been even worse. I might as well have just cut my round hella short. I don't intend to ever do that again.

I won though, and it was in my opinion my best battle, all chokes aside.

ppl doing the quick reminder peak between rounds or right befor the round is nothing that really bothers me

but dat shit dat Noshame was doing , literally jus reading it the whole time and trying to give half-hearted acknowledgement of what was being said to him (her?) really fucked up the battle imo

Personally, the only big problem I have with it is that it doesn't allow the other battler to feed off his opponent. When someone is really going ham and the other guy has his face buried in his phone, it doesn't help the battle have an aggressive vibe. When it is a tense aggressive battle, it ruins it. But if it is a Daylyt rap-about-mortal-kombat style round, who cares?

Maybe it's just a pet peeve of mine but I fucking hate it and don't really understand anyone here saying they're ok with it

If u can't remember ur rounds that u got paid to write/memorize you're a piece of shit

And even if ur an up and comer not getting paid and have to rely on ur phone why would someone book u again.

Wish more people would get called out or boo'd when they did it

Wasn't it mr biscuit vs dlor where he was literally just reading his phone? That was an absolute shit show

Ok I'm done
