so really we have a lot in common


This is the exact reason why I retired out of the blue, cashed out my five of years of retirement savings and began my trek out west.

Anyone got a couch I can crash on?

SketchMenace is not the worst person
i realize this comment will most likely get flooded with responses about how i'm not as good as good of a battler as him as if that takes my ability to have an opinion away but...

Gjonij is not good. He's had some moments but jesus.... "i jumped off a cliff and found out i could fly!" Dudes like the Don Quixote of this shit. He talks about his material like he's Gob from arrested development talking about his "illusions".

nah you definitely better than gjonaj.

and that assessment is spot on, he had a couple really dope and "deep" type lines that put him on. he got a reputation for that and has been trying to recreate those types of moments ever since, with less success each time.

He has a lot of corny shit but so do you. He can write similes and wordplay lines ok, which is something you don't do extremely well. You both have cringeworthy voices and delivery. But I think you vs him would be a cool match.

he is a solid writer imo. says some corny shit sometimes like everyone does, but honestly, if he had a less annoying voice/persona (big if) people here would probably love him. really don't think writing was his problem.

He's by no means not good. He's original which in this day and age counts for a lot but he's nowhere near good enough to take himself as seriously as he does.

he does come across as a pseudo intellectual a lot of the time but he had a lot of original fresh material and then he just kinda got less important with every battle

This.

His attitude towards the crowd was so condescending it was ridiculous.

None of these guys retire. They just take a break and hope someone the pubic misses them so they could charge more.

Gjonaj had a pen but I'd be fine if I never saw another battle from him.
