$-In 2017 we need more battles with money on the line-$

We need to bring it back to the Fight Klub days, where people won and lost bread.

I'm sick of all this every battle is debatable shit.

-This will make people work harder
-bring more tension in the battles
-give people more incentive to win
-have documented real shit to brag about
-also weed out a lot of shit battlers that just kinda linger around for years taking up spots on cards
-ect.

I guarantee Gjonaj vs Psychosis would not have been as good of a battle if there wasn't money on the line.

I'm kinda excited to See Verb vs Jimz coming up on RBE, if their wasn't bread on the line, i probably wouldn't even care about this battle.

what are your guys thoughts?

I fully agree with this, judged or vets vs up and comers battles get me more interested in the battles. Most important point you made is we really need to weed out the shit battlers.

Yeah I like battles with money on the line, it's the only time judging is worth doing imo.

It's more on the battlers to put up their own money though and the leagues should still pay them to perform.

I lost my first ever battle on a money bet but it was easily the most anticipated battle of the day and neither of us had battled before , putting money on the line really brings out the best in people

They should pay them half and put the other half in winnings e.g.

Bigg K 8k
Suge 8k

4K each and then 8k up for grabs.

Fuck that! They should put up their own bread 100%. KOTD need to drop their gay ass slogan until niggas actually start putting their money where their mouth is.

Totally agree with OP. You wouldn't have the suspect ass shit some of these "top tiers" pull, if it wasn't for the whole "show money" system that smaller leagues are forced to adhere to. Paves the way for real (up and coming) talent to make their mark, and would force truly talented vets to hold down their spot.

do a whole event of 'em. lighting could be light green ($), grim, you could put a little cash counter on the rapper's name to show what they're betting (full with cash register noise and allat), judges panel decisions could be end-of-video advertisement for the rest of the event

tell me KOTD - Rap Battle - E Ness vs Head I.C.E. | #CurrencyExchange don't look hard as fuck

Don't worry, I've changed it to something you didn't say now and it's much more friendly.

hey avo, have you ever approached battlers with an idea such as..

Say you got two battlers that charge 3k to battle for you. Instead of paying them 3k each, they both get 1.5k BUT there's 4k going to the winner.

So they each lose half their asking price, but have a chance to earn 2.5k more than they would have. Obviously you're throwing an extra rack on (i think there needs to be extra incentive here) so there would have to be some adjustments made budget wise. Theoretical numbers, not sure about the business end of things.


How you think that would work? I feel like some battlers who pay their rent based on this probably wouldn't want to take the chance. But what about the guys who do this more for something extra on the side? Say they agreed, would you yourself be comfortable with this or would you be worried about perceived bias or potentially wrong judgements impacting your (striclty business, no homo) relationship with the battlers?

i dont see this ever happening tbh.

i dont see battlers agreeing to do it,with those that did you'd see a lot of them taking the deposit and then backing out of the battles due to the lack of faith in the judging process imo.

leagues would be too worried about losing their known battlers to upstart leagues willing to pay the fixed price to actually do it either imo.

it may weed out some of the bottom/mid tier battlers,but the flipside to tht is you lose the elite level battlers too.

it seems kinda insulting to ask battlers to give up some of their fee on the hopes tht a group of (notoriously bad) judges pick them as winners.

they either add the value tht their asking price merits or they dont tbh.
