    Why wouldnt you post this in the battle rap forum?

    I wouldnt say one rounders is what killed it. I think the big stage is what killed it for me. Rappers cant even finish their schemes anymore. Crowds start cheering after hearing one third of it and fuck up their flow. Or they boo too early. The bigger the stage, the weaker it is due to the crowd.

    KOTD going back to pit style has been a HUGE improvement. There is still a lot of crowd interference, but it isnt as bad as URL's big event crowds.

    I used to watch almost every battle that was released the second they were released on every league/card. Now, even if the matchup is exciting i will barely peep a battle. I did check out Head ICE vs Bigg K though and that was a great battle.

    Hollow vs Lux was my most anticipated battle of all time. Before that it was Mook vs Iron Solomon. After the Mook vs Solomon Disappointment and Lux vs Hollow living up to every expectation i had, ive been losing interest haha.

    I still want to see:

    Lux vs Arsonal
    Hollow vs Arsonal Rematch
    Mook vs Lux 3
    Dizaster vs Eurgh
    Shotgun Suge vs Hitman Holla
    Verb vs Lux
    Clips vs Mook
    Mook vs Surf

    still a lot i want to see now that i think about it.

    Where is the evidence that br is dead, niggas keep making this baseless claim, 1 rounders did kill potential full battles though.

    it kills potential goat battles tho. its an exhibition for a pay day and the battles rarely can get off in a one rounder. its usually done by smaller leagues who can provide the dream match up but not the rounds.

    its undercutting method and i think it cheapens the product.

    I think battle rap is in a great space.It's not dead.I don't like one rounders,but niggas be mixing it up now.2 on 2's etc.

    Battle rappers everywhere from reality shows,to mtv and adult swim.

    We go hard is the future and smack is bringing them on in.

    I don't think it's dead or dying. I think that's what people start chanting about anything when they outgrow something. Your experience is not everyone else's. I used to be down to watch anime about anything. Then I had a few choice ones. Now I don't watch at all. Does that mean the 13-episode anime arc killed anime? Nah, just means I got more things to occupy my time.

    Personally, I like one-rounders. They're usually always front to back full of bangers and minimal filler. It's like getting straight Jack versus a Jack and Coke. You'll get fucked up either way, but one cuts out all the *PG Steps* going back and forth to the bar.
