fans are as greedy as battlers, but greedy is a bad word to use considering they're all mostly regular people motivated by money. the only way they're 'greedy' is if they're supposed to subvert themselves entirely to 'the cultcha.'

there are definitely people willing to support, that's why there continue to be PPVs. the onus is on the battlers to make stuff worth supporting. I don't buy shitty music or shitty t shirts.

everyone nowadays is used to free entertainment and it's not even close to being a symptom of only battle rap fans.

leagues are innately easier to be loyal compared to battlers to because they don't bounce around, stay on the same channel, and control the branding/look of what they do.

also, it'd be great if battlers could live off their craft, but acting like fans not setting them up in a house with a white picket fence is because the fans are greedy is absolutely absurd.

there isn't enough demand for that to happen which isn't the fault of the current fanbase.

I'm poor...but even if I wasn't I probably wouldn't support battlers. Maybe go to a show or an event but I haven't bought music since Napster came out.

You and I are on some kind of weird wavelength with Reverse Live. That's the homie I've never met, right there. I think he gets a choice 40oz and time with friends. Which is awesome.

I recently went back to a couple of KOTD battles from 2009-11. Perspective, indeed.
@SpecialOh is that dude!

Until recently battle rap has been a cheap or free past time to enjoy
Battlers actually now are asking for more for doing less

Before to see money you had to go and actually perform and win. Usually it was a few people a night
If you are doing shows you would never see that money
Battle rap right now should not be seen as an income or even a main source of income. Battle rap should be your side hustle and your promotional tool to whatever your main income is

U need to be hustling it into actual shows
Selling merchandise from your brand Hosting events etc.
Follow Clips Con and Hitman into other forms of entertainment

Less ad revenue for shorter battles though sadly
