Written battles over beats???

No Coast had one with Cadalack Ron vs Fresco.


I think this format has potential. If it all works out right.

Is there any battle you would like to see in this format???

I'm leanin towards Bill Collector vs Ness Lee on beat.

What are your thoughts ?

Thumbs up

My problem with written battles on a beat is the quality. Might as well just make dis tracks at that point. Why have two dudes write to two different beats and have them show up and both rap to something that isn't what they wrote for? There's already shit tons of audio issues with accapella and adding a beat that's feeding into the mics is just another variable for disaster.

Scribble/freestyle era was essentially written battles and we distanced ourselves from that shit for a reason.



Here we have dotz who wrote every line and Charron who beat him freestyling.

I thought K shine was fire against Math on a beat but Math sucked in that battle

But yeah the biggest problem is that the production normally isn't great and it sounds bad. Maybe just as big of a problem tho is the fact that probably only 10 battlers would actually sound good. Not to mention how do you book a card of top tiers in a small room and recoupe/how do you make the sound clear enough for 1000 ppl in a big room to hear

Regardless if battles were on Beats all you haters of the swag God do realize you would be making Goodz the new goat of Battle Rap

Don't Flop has had some great examples of these, even aside from Grime Clashes. ...mostly all involving Dialect.


It's definitely a format I'd like to see explored some more. Flow is my favorite feature a battler might have and we know half these dudes can't stay on rhythm for shit, let alone have ever been in a booth to begin with. I don't think it can be dismissed as "Just write diss tracks then" either cause that shit should be saved for when you've got a real problem with someone, and it's a lot more interesting when the two agree on beats to use for it which is what I think happens when leagues set these up.

Act like you don't like grime all you want, but this is incredibly hype and super entertaining

on beat battles sound like crap live and on video
the written aspect being better wouldnt be worth it

and every cool part of any beat battle ever is when its like "oh shit as if he just thought of that" or "as if that just came out" imo. take that away u got nuffin

Not sure tbh, most of the better street rappers can't highlight the delivery/ crowd reaction they need spitting over a beat, and most battlers in general have non ear friendly flows in general, let alone over beats... And the cats that can flow their ass off, usually have lackluster material outside riding the beats properly.. Obviously exceptions, but just how I see things playing out

FTR, not opposed to this, when the battles make sense, just nothing I see picking up a lot of steam outside overseas leagues tbh...

I like this idea if they can get the audio to work. It brings the hip hop back to battling. I think it will work out great

Dope rooftop on-beat battle. Flamez delivered a crazy performance here.

Don't sleep if you haven't peeped yet. Starts @ 6:10

the nostalgia man <
technology wise on beat battless sound just as shitty as then lol (last time i heard)

doin this bring u 1 step away from doing a recorded track battle which obv would sound 1000000x better

i liked the battles some dude put on where it was time limits to write + record...i dont think any1 else liked it tho cuz the concept fell on its face and failed or was given up quickly
