Do any of you guys watch Ground Zero? If so do you enjoy it? Are there any good up and comers? Were Shotti P and Lex Luthor the two nicest from there? I still dont know the difference between Ground Zero and Prove Yourself.

I watch if porich or megadef battle. There's a couple other ones I've seen over time, but I'm pretty sure I've watched no more than half a dozen.

yea, i remember hearin that porich has been on gz exclusively lately.do you have any idea why he is doin that? him bein a former champ and relatively popular. im sure he cud get on these major cards if he wants. curious as to why he chooses gz.

i remember when unorthodox phrases got to a point where he only wanted to battle on small leagues in non-pressure situations.so he stopped doin major GT battles, but was down for No Coast.makes me wonder if this is somethin like that.

ahh..well im thinkin i get it..like maybe someone cud do there first ever battle on PY, but GZ is designed to introduce more seasoned battlers to the audience? like gz is kinda like URL's provin grounds.because for url a pg wud never be a first time battler, but URL has no Prove yourself equiavalent. somethin like that?

Yeah, Idk what's up with rich. He belongs on kotd's main channel and their biggest cards imo.

Matter of fact, when organik made that list of battlers that he reached out to for BO, I didn't see porich on the list. So maybe they just don't fuck with dude for some personal or behinds the scenes shit. Cause he's as a good as any other Canadian rapper imo.

*edit

Shit, the got cheddar cheese, shotty p, lex luthor, psychosis, but they can't holla at the true king of the north? Something seems off.

Yeh nail on the head pretty much. Prove Yoself is like fully Canadiam farmlife weirdo shit with some proper trainwreck battles. Its pretty funny though in a kind of social experiment way.

As KOTD started to get wrapped up with URL battlers and everyone being a tough guy with a generic style, GZ was a nice platform for battles that were just "fun" whether they were Canadian or in California.

The quality/talent wasn't always consistent, but at least it was a consistently original platform.

Ground Zero tried to rebrand themselves within the past year by "separating" themselves from KOTD, but ended up mimicking a lot of the same attributes that made KOTD unattractive. They tried to throw bigger events with bigger names (including a lot of "old" regulars from KOTD that no longer fit KOTD's current image as well as notable American battlers, the majority of them being "street"). They even put a Dizaster battle (against Lil G in Vancouver) on the channel and it will likely be Diz's lowest viewed battle of his career.

Their views as a whole remain uninspiring, and aside from some limited exceptions (illipsis, Lil G, maybe Lex D), there are no battlers who came up through GZ that have any positive future in battle rap.

KOTD, PY, and GZ are all the same brand and Po Rich could be on any one of them. Shame on anyone that thinks less of Rich for battling on GZ.

GZ should bring back short rounds, funny battlers, local vets and judges to call the battle absolutely bananas
Throw the good battles on the main channel immediately
And rename that shit to KOTD Origins

Not really; only if there's names I recognize, which isn't often. I never look for GZ battles, I just happen to find them if they're posted here, which again isn't often.

KOTD > GZ > PY

Why would i bother with PY when I barely bother with GZ? The point of watching battles is entertainment, and that generally goes down as you fall further into the black hole of terrible battles and battlers who don't know how to appeal to anyone besides their 3 friends who told them to compete in the first place. I'm sure there's gems somewhere in there, but there's only so many hours in the day.

this was NOT on GZ but its a GZ battle. 2 low tier (maybe low mid) going at it
@FatManFromSpace these are my favorite types of battles idk how to explain but feels so much more genuine like old battles and not like reciting ur rhymes on a stage

GZ is honestly dope and people should give it a shot if they haven't already checked some battles. There are some amazing hidden gems in there.

I dont see how anyone expects for the scene to grow and for us to see new faces without supporting the lower tier talent building leagues.
