At 4 hours ago, BigRed wrote: Suddle's battling in the semi-finals right now, you might want to wait until he's not in the middle of a battle to move forward with your battle. Don't call the battle off though, these things just take time. Sound good?

Red, this might have been a valid excuse IF I'd asked him to battle today. Or yesterday. Or the day before that. (In other words, the three days that he would have to record his ClabTrap verse... oh wait, we're ignoring those rules now.) BUT, I sent my first verse to him THIRTEEN days ago: that would make it May 21st.

What happened on May 19th? Suddle's Round 3 battle against Amtmann was posted. Seeing as how it usually takes you a good two days to post the battles, that means he must have been finished around the 17th.

Now, happened four days ago:

Winner: suddlenuance.

Between 5/19 and 5/29 (a period of ten days), Suddddddle had nothing else to do. Unless he can predict the future, he would not be certain if he was going to advance, or even who he would be going up against, which means he had ample time to write and record a verse for our battle. The semi-final match-ups were announced on the 30th (also four days ago).

We even had this little exchange on the 25th (nine days ago):

Don't go around making up excuses for other people, Red.

i can't believe you are campaigning this hard for the sake of a side battle time limit. Last time I checked, the time limits applied to the tournament for the sake of moving it forward, not all battles. I agree with Red. Let Suddle make his run at the tournament before you worry about winning a battle that hasn't happened. There is money on the line,after all.

I'm not campaigning this hard for a time limit on side battles. However, two weeks for one verse is ridiculous. Dafuq he think he is, Gasmasq Junior?

If you're going to accept someone's invitation to a side battle, and you KNOW that you're not going to be able to manage a fairly quick turn-around time, you should at least have the courtesy of telling the other person - or not accepting the battle at all, or even asking "Hey, can we put this off until I have some free time?" Y'know, rather than stringing me along, like the last three girls I thought I had a shot with.

For the record it has now been more than 3 days on Suddle's semi-finals verse. The three day mark was Friday night. To be consistent with what I did in the last round with Gas I've given him two days to get it in. The verse will be marked late. If I don't have Suddle's verse in by Monday morning he will be disqualified.

Rampant, do whatever you want. I'm not putting a side battle with one verse up on clabtrap.

I can wait for a verse I'm never going to get, for a victory I'm never going to achieve; or I can drop out and get another loss on my ClabTrap stats.

If I don't get suddle's verse by midnight Sunday night/Monday morning, I'm out: I'm 0-3 on ClabTrap, another isn't going to make my win/loss ratio go down any more.

Fuuuuuck. I just wrote this huge thing talkin about how i'm down for this madteq battle. It all got erased because my brother contacted me on steam asking what my favorite weird al songs were. SONOFABITCH.

OKAY Madfrex. Find a beat and we'll battle. I am determined to beat you.

And yes, this is a drunken challenge but i never back down; it's on you fat fucking lard ass.

True story: I had an anxiety fit applying for Clabtrap that I'd get put against MadFlex and pre-emptively wrote 24 bars of material, even though I think the guy's an insane rapper.

Then I got put against Fat Beats. And lost.

ALSO: SJD is right. What we're working is should actually turn out to be something rather special. Ditto me and Kill Bill. Looking for more rappers on this mixtape. JUMP ON THE BANDWAGON GUIZ.

Need someone on this track who can handle a seriously gritty beat and make shit catchy: http://soundcloud.com/iammoonburn/a-trip-too-far-moonburn

Rampant, I agree wholeheartedly with you...when a dude says something he's supposed to do it...I guess that's just a Southern thing though, cuz nobody else seems to have caught the bug.

Red, I love how you constantly lower the bar for yourself. I mean, instead of seeing how Gasmasq acted and telling everybody to pull up their bootstraps and treat this tournament seriously, you somehow manage to limbo under an again decreased standard.

I also love how BOTH of these late ass rappers are against me. BR, I hope YOU took into account that Gas was late, cuz the voters sure didn't, as I predicted. They dgaf.

7 fuckin days for a 16 bar verse. This shit better be the second coming of Rakim. Then I'ma write my shit in half an hour and fuck his ass up.

YO, SIDE BATTLES NEED TO BE FOR SOME CHEESE. Teq/Flex, Rampant/Suddle, put some dolla dolla billz on that shit!! You be surprised how quickly u improve when u got money on the line!

Holy shit, I feel like a jar of smashed assholes right now. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaarf

I just woke up completely unaware of my actions. Apparently I'm battling MadFlex, because my drunken alter ego challenged the shit out of him last night.

About rapping for skrilla- normally I'd be all for it but I'm transitioning between jobs right now and I need every extra penny I have, so rapping for money is out of the question until I'm working again, which will hopefully be soon.

Don't worry Senator- I know I have my work cut out for me here and I'm coming in guns blazing on this one. Anyway, we agreed on the blind 32 format, so who wants to be our middle man?

Yo! British dude be pissed the last time he got given the middle man shot PiG was jus' trollin'. Very much up for middle man-ing. I'll go check out Flex's previous beats and see if I can find something you should both like.

Well Flex told me he already has a beat picked out. But it doesn't matter to me who picks the beat, just as long as it's good, and preferably around 95-100 bpm. I want this to have some energy, unlike most of the recent competition battles.

Hahahaha, ill :P Alright, I'm once again a redundant middle man, but IDGAF, this sounds like it'll be an awesome side battle.

Also, me vs. Emergency should be happening in the next month... maybe... depending on when he gets back to me with his reply verse.

Let's have a battle over who gets to pick the beat. I'll middleman that, but since ACKAKLFDALSJDF already said he's middlemanning, we're gonna hafta have a battle to see who middlemans. Who wants to middleman the beat picking for the SJD/AKVALJLDSKF middleman battle?

I'll get started as soon as i get the beat. Man, I don't even have beef with MadFlex, so I don't really know what pushed me to challenge him. But fuck it, he's a quality rapper and I fucking promise to make this shit entertaining.

All mom and gay jokes for 32 bars son. It's gon be some real quality shit.

I'm enjoying a glorious Sunday out, so I'll send the beat when I get home if a middleman hasn't chosen one.
