Slug2003 is not the worst person
I could be wrong about the English lit major, he has another facebook page linked to the first one under contact information in the bottom right corner. That one has more music related stuff with links to youtube. His last post was in 2015. I emailed him last night asking about new music, he hasn't replied.

Are people really excited for Jpro to come back? I honestly only really liked like one or two of his battles.

i did like some J-Pro battles..but I was more excited to hear that he's coming back to the scene period..since that might mean KOTD would re upload Franco vs J-Pro lol

I read his post incorrectly.

I thought Franco was involved.

I am not a J-Pro fan. Though I do support him having a Filipino wife

aha I had to look him up. Is it because I am a very talkative and passionate commentator? Can't figure this one out. I'll take it as a compliment though cuz that guy seems cool

I'm just a weirdo who ruminates a lot on topics that most people don't typically don't pay too much mind to

I love this thread though... So glad I'm not the only one who is still a big Franco fan.

I was saying that because you got a compliment on the way you said something. WCF is known for having a unique style. I wouldn't say Walt talks more than the average commentator.. he often has a memorable turn of phrase. I'm a Knicks fan. It's a compliment

Sorry to bump this thread after so long but about a month ago Franco created a bandcamp page with a large collection of his music. Just saw it today. It has music from 5 albums but they are all in one batch, not organized by individual album. Makes me wonder if something new is in the works.

On phone show formatting might suck. I would advise against a bunch of random people emailing Franco. Last time I talked to Phillip Drummond about it, he was concerned for Franco's Mental Health. Absolutely not confirming anything on that front or trying to spread rumors, just advising folks to err on the side of caution and not send mass emails to someone who apparently is paranoid about going out in public for fear people might want to hurt him.

Maple Leaf has the bar in correct in that there is no reference to a best friend dying. If I recall correctly, it's literally, this idiot was in a near fatal car accident and then got a DUI like 2 weeks after it which is great

Franco is absolutely one of the best freestyle battle rappers of all time and it sucks he's kind of been lost to history with the annexation of freestyle battles caused by the written era which is much more boring and less skillful in my opinion

Banishment, not annexation

Very interested in hearing more stories about Franco though

Best one to me is still when he won a freestyle battle in New York I think and they presented him with a big novelty check that he immediately ruined by folding up and putting in his backpack LOL like it was a real check or something that he should store to cash later and not something for a photo op that he should keep around as a memento

Haven't read the whole thread but watched the first 2 vids posted. He was pretty dope. Wonder how we would fare against today's battlers. I do enjoy era clash battles.

My first and only live battle was in 2003. It was the beginning of okwerdz ex-I j-jack (lol) and Franco. After the main battles there was a huge cypher outside. I jumped in and freestyled with ok Franco and ex-I. Everyone was good but Franco was on another level. At first it was everyone going for a few minutes and passing the mic. But at the end Franco rapped by himself for 30+ minutes. Absolutely smoking the session to the point that it garnered a huge crowd. What first started with like 10-15 heads ended with 60-70 all marveling over Franco. He ended it by hitting on my cousins girlfriend. He said something like “ if that fire session doesn’t help me get this girls blessing, i might just end this lesson with her dads service weapon” (she was wearing a shirt that said daughter of a sheriff”

Might not be the crazy bars you here in today’s format but I’ll just say, Franco was for a period of time the best freestyler on the planet. Very humble and cool cat too

no idea, not even sure if it's a real thing. don't want to post much about it due to that. only mentioned it because a bunch of folks spamming him could be terrible scenario if his mental health is in question.

bout to watch some franco battles
