Yeah, but its only lit to you and us battle rap die hards........its no where near how lit it was when it was on youtube. Fan base was growing. You could tell by the numbers in the views of the not only the battles, but the bloggers as well. Look on IG when sh*t gets posted or when some of the big name battlers go live. Nobody watchin this sh*t outside of its small fan base.

I agree. I was watching them regular on YouTube. Now all these damn ppv, special battle apps and links are too much. Last battle I watch was cassidy and daylight vs Los. I may check out the drake card.

its dying.
sh*t ain't entertainment no more it's like n*ggas get on stage and say all the sh*t they secretly harbor on another n*gga and guise it as "bars".
sh*t more about being disrespectful than rapping,
only a hand full of battle kats keep it battle,

- Day
- Head

them like the only 2 n*ggas I can listen to and not cringe behind fabricated street sh*t or beef bar.

Used to be big into it but the more URL got popular the less the battles kept my attention.

Smack going to primarily the Caffeine app definitely changed sh*t. It wouldnt be that much of a problem if it was a better platform. But the app is bad, and theres no desktop version.

Bro could upload a snipit on Youtube and have the link in the description to the battle. Its free anyway.

Don’t know why ppl say battle rap is dying or it’s dead honestly it’s still growing

This is like the ring tone era for battle rap

When them training wheels pop off might see bigger Artist pop out

The biggest league made it harder to access battles and then flooded the smaller market with more battles.

Idk who thought it was a good idea. But it wasn't.

Yea I haven’t followed in YEEEARS. But I grew up bein a huge fan. Serious Jones, reed dollaz, and Cassidy had to be some of my favorites as a youngin. But yea the hype around it definitely died which just means actual rap is dying as rap transition into this pop/punk rock/indie feel. Having “bars” simply don’t mean what it used to. And being “smart” will literally make n*ggas tune you out. Try arguing with the average street n*gga about why jcole or Kendrick get play, and you’ll see.

I wouldn't say it's dead it's just a new era all around. Too much money and politics involved now and no one is competitive anymore. No one getting reprimanded for choking and battlers just showing up for the bag.

battle rap is a hip hop element that isn't meant for casuals. stop worrying bout what the casuals think and focus on what you can control.

Depends on what you consider semi-mainstream; majority of battlers have gotten signed, got on TV and/or got a cosign from someone in the mainstream.

But did any of them blow up? I don't think anyone who got a push from or a start on Smack DVD/URL did. MAYBE you could consider Jin because he had that minor hit, "Learn Chinese."

edit: Oh and if you consider Cass a Smack rapper then him too.

Battlers getting paid more than ever but you got n*gga complaining because they can’t get free battles on YouTube. Smack wasn’t making no money on YouTube. Battle rap has always been a niche anyways lol

The culture of battle rap could never die... but that real, raw, street aspect of it is definitely lost in the mix.

It's more like WWF now wit all these character gimmicks n extra dramatic sh*t

It's dying because none of them overpriced PPVs worth it, n*ggas be scamming with the 'support this and that' sh*t but be putting out mediocre battles.

And if you don't pay you gotta wait for them mediocre battles to be released 5-6 months down the line. That was what k*lled it for me years ago. Too many times either watching a trash PPV or waiting for a trash event release.

Not even taking into account n*ggas choking or having only 2 real rounds. Plus the new crop of battles can't hold water, I fu*ks with Geechi though.

Day is really nice but he does and says crazy sh*t for the reaction and attention.

I don't agree with some of the antics but I guess that's how he gets his name to make headlines.

He lowkey one of the pioneering trolls online.

Him, Thugga and Lil B.

he does do goofy gimmicks,
but he ain't wilding to the extent some of these other battler's are.
and don't get it twisted, just cause I think Day a very dope a*s battle MC by no means do I excuse his fu*kery (the dress sh*t/thong sh*t still perplexes me to this day. like why do that? )

but in relation to what OP was asking, I responded the way I did.
Wasn't looking for agreement or disagreement, just was stating my stance.

So what's your take on what OP asked?
