B Dot is great, but the views don't show it.

Jerry Wess has more views on a single battle than B Dot.

What's up with that ?
I guess he's just a battle rap niche guy.
But it's amazing how battle rap has casual URL fans that only watch URL and maybe UDUBB, save for pat stay battles here and there.

B Dot has it all, an it factor, an image, bars, a persona,

Yah but these views man...
Cortez is a top tier name in terms of popularity and views, longevity.

Their battle ain't break 300,000 views.
I bet Glueazy got that tho...

Everybody calm down, I know views aren't exactly what matter...
Just interesting how he's such a name and commodity in battle rap but the views don't show...

mulatto mutant is not the worst person
Considering he has one battle on kotd and the rest on a no name ass league his views are ridiculously impressive and you might be the only person not impressed with his view count

This.

Also 300 000 (comma key is broken) views is pretty damn decent for a battle that's a monthish old. Especially a KOTD bunker battle.

Keep in mind that popularity and buzz among hardcore fans is much different than casual fan popularity. Someone who is rated highly among the fans like us may not get the high views on youtube (like a DNA) but we're more likely to buy a ticket/ppv because of a rated name.

Monetized youtube views roughly translate to a stack per million views. That equals a meager 50 ppv buys at 20 bucks a piece. 30 ppv buys at 30 dollar price.

I think the dude is doing well considering that was ONLY his 6th battle. 3 against no names. One against an unprepared bullshit Daylyt. His battle with Danny was one of the best if not the best battle of the year and the Cortez one was fire as well. I have high hopes for the dude.

Also I want to add that I want to see Geechi Gotti vs B Dot in The Bunker. Honestly the best matchup the west has to offer right now.

You can thank me later @AVOCADO

I wouldn't call them ridiculous now considering the buzz and the fact that he's probably most talked about amongst avid battle rap fans...

Like I said, not saying views matter...

Just trying to figure out why he doesn't have more views...

He needs a larger sample of battles on bigger platforms (KOTD, URL, UDUBB) before we can determine if his views are low, high, average, etc. I think the Cortez battle has done pretty impressive views so far. That can be attributed more to the quality of the battle itself versus either battler's brand/view pull.

Highlighted are on LABG

KOTD battle has a smidge under 200k in about a month

Seems good too me.

Too put it into perspective there are barely 5 battles put out in the last 4 months by KOTD that have more views then B Dot v Cortez and they all have been out longer...the reason I said barely is that it will most likely pass the recent Clips v Shotti battle soon.

KOTD's viewcount cant and shouldnt be compared to URL's
