The reason battle rappers make bad music is because if they could make good music they wouldn't be battle rappers.

Because most of them can only rap a capella.

Battle rappers would probably make great spoken word poets though. Hollow Da Don on the new season of Def Jam Poetry

shows you recently got into battle rap ..
it started that battle rap was a great way to get your music heard self exposure & in the industry
AND for a while get a major label deal ...

now it can still be a platform to get your music heard a bought (at underground & indie hip hop type numbers)

& it used to be that you had to be able to battle rap as a rapper /MC pretty much
all the golden greats battle rapped // all of wu tang , redman , Eminem . Jay Z , Big L , to Canadians like Mad child
even newer cats like immortal tech to new new cats like Mac Miller ....and all of em from the golden era and most from the new gen battled at a smaller level on the block or just with they boys

Bro I wasn't talking about the art of battle rap, I'm talking about being involved in the current battle scene.

I'm saying that a bunch of guys who love hip hop but can't really rap or ride a beat at all get into battle rap as an outlet to promote their shit. Key point there is that if they were really good they wouldn't go down the battle rap path

I know that's quite sweeping and there are always exceptions but battle rap isn't seen as a community for fostering talent, it's not like stand up comedy circuit is to the movie and tv industry.

if it was there would be a lot more dudes moving on to bigger and better things instead of 4-5 since the start of grindtime, none of which has really made on a big scale.

Really, they're no less capable of making good music than anybody else, except for how they get conditioned thru their medium.

Let's say, for example, someone decides they want to be an artist and starts flowing over beats. Then, suddenly, they get an opportunity to be involved in the battle culture, and they take up that shot, while still continuing to grind at making good music. Those emcees will then have just as equal of a chance at making hits, if not better, because battling teaches you how to come with more aggression in your voice, delivery, and bars, making you an edgier listen, if you play your cards right. This is my personal plan/path.

But, now, let's say, somebody gets into rapping almost exclusively through battle rap. They do acapella after acapella battle, filled with oddly structured flows that would never fit over a beat. Then, suddenly, they decide to start making music. Those people will have a hard time adjusting because they didn't start their "rhyming careers" practicing your basic, melodic flows that could work both acapella AND over instrumentals. If they're good enough and practice, they can of course become masters of both, but battling conditions you to rap a way that is against the grain of music making.

*shrug* Battle rappers aren't bad at making music, they're just sort of at a disadvantage IF that's the way they got into the scene.

They make terrible music because they try to make hip hop songs and Hip Hop died in like 99. There's no market for it

But to be honest the guys weren't really making the music while they were battling.
This era will produce some underground artists that younger kids will look up to.
