For thos who think battle rap is dead...

You got to look beyond the ring. Lots of leagues doing themed events, blogs, fan predictions, rankings, podcasts etc. It's like wrestling. The in ring portion is a part of it but it's the build up and stuff around the in ring action that keeps it going. Lots of leagues doing stuff to keep it creative right now. I like the direction it's headed.

Wrestling and battling are so similar it's scary. Video vignettes etc. Lots of leagues have chains or champions. KOTR has a title for worst battler etc.

Oh I agree with you completely. But if you look good enough there is still interesting content and real good events.

For sure despite the backlash in this thread I actually agree that podcasts and interviews are really key to hyping events up for sure I just think the authentic feel will never comeback

I couldn't agree more but they are trying to keep it interesting. You the man for this.

I think battle rap is dying where these dudes have good sportsmanship. Fuck that I appreciate his bars and shit like that. URL cats aren't bigging each other up, they talk shit in blogs, on twitter etc... Kotd needs to remember why diz vs dna was so hyped up, these guys really hated each other and let it be known. Even if it's fake, like a wwe wrestler attacking another back stage, it creates a kind of build up where people want to see the confrontation in the ring

Another thing is one round battles to me are very refreshing. one 5 minute round or so. 12-13 minute video. Enjoyable.

If you have to look "beyond the ring" to find entertainment in battle rap, that seems like a decent case for it dying honestly.

Eww. This shit is dead. I'm just waiting for the next incarnation, if there will be one. This public speaking format is boring as hell to me.

yea its not the best defense

its like saying, sure the NBA games aren't great, but did you see them yell about it on First Take? was amazing

the NBA is great though, so feel free to insert something dumb in its place for that metaphor. bwap
