This should be your job shouldnt it? Fuck that grimy shit where we each pick 3..... he's just asking for dirty votes.
You go get 20+ people who've never battled us and dont know us personally, or at all.

Might i add...7 judges? seriously? Even the Supreme Court has NINE and the Constitution is way less subjective than the dozens.

Way to quadruple post, piglet. Let's have your trogladyte ass tell me about the plot of "Untitled" and then talk to me about cinema and irony. You belong in a starring role in that movie.

Look, I know and EVERYONE knows the three judges you pick are gonna be dirty. I'm cool with whuppin you 4-3. I'm pretty sure that I can find 4 people with integrity and love for hip hop enough to know that you couldn't wash my dirty sweatsocks when it comes to rap...or music in general.

If Akac is hosting, then I'm trusting him to make fair decisions about how to do this. Maybe another site is the way to go, cuz you've had 11 years to suck dick on NG.

11 years and no job? Damn, son, you think it might be time to grab that GED and grab a couple Zaxby's applications?

Sorry for dbl posting like the piglet, but who says NG has to judge this?

We do the battle, and Akac gets 7 of his personal friends, who neither of us could know, to judge it. They can do a Youtube vid explaining their vote or just write it down on paper and take a picture of it. Or 11 friends, if 7 isn't enough for you. However many he can get.

This is of course assuming that Akac and Pig don't live near each other. I know I don't live near either one of you.

We can just post it on NG for shits n' such.

Works for me. The more objective people the better it is for me. You and teq are the only people on NG who think im a big player with a cabal of internet friend votes. I definitely wouldnt have lost a battle to shitty-ass Blest if that were the case.

See though, without any contract being signed, the loser could get mad and easily sue. The contract isn't just about who is holding the money, there are so many loopholes here its not even funny.

I'll be sueing Red if I lose CLABTRAP

Oh, don't worry, piglet. I don't think you have any friends.

And Emergency, I know. I'm trying to draw up a contract right now, but seriously, what the hell is that really supposed to do? Who can enforce anything around here?

The Law? It is what it is. As a rapper, you can't do shit or you look you're snitchin. Unfortunately, I don't think PiG would give a crap if people saw him snitch. Then if PiG loses and no contract was signed, he can sue and say shit like he thought he won and never even legally agreed to the judges deciding the winner and what-not. You or him could have 100+ friends comment voting for him, and then say he won the popular vote and never agreed to the judge thing.

That's why you need a contract and you need a BigRed to enforce it.

LOL STOP SNITCHIN

Dude, I didn't grow up in the ghetto, I have no problem gettin the lawyers involved if need be. I have lawyers in my family. I DO hate cops though. But lol at the stop snitchin thing.

Maybe BigRed should hold the money. We know he has integrity and he does this professionally, so he definitely has a stake in seeing things go down smoothly.

Whaddya say BigRed? Feel like holdin $1000 for a couple of days?

I think that's a good idea. That way nobody can cheat and not pay. So here's the deal as I see it:

1. BigRed holds the money, gives it to the winner.
2. Contest is judged by the host's PERSONAL friends. NG votes are just for shits n giggles and will have NOTHING to do with who gets the money.

That seems to be fair to me.

No ones holding any money. The loser pays the winner. Im an adult so i have all my money in my debit cards not my fucking paypal, im not gonna go and lose a bunch of money in transaction fees and risk BigRed running off with my money to splurge on some Ben Spurgin level heroin just to prove to you that i have a week's worth of money.

Feel free to write up a contract but seems to me you're just stalling. One of us has honor.....honor and talent.

ON THE POINT OF THE ACTUAL BATTLE.
I want to do 8bar verses, you obviously dont because it gives me an advantage....so how about in exchange for the 8bar verses i'll be the only one that has to achieve a majority to win.
That being you will win if you get >50% of the votes per usual, i will only win if i get 60%+ majority....anything less for me will mean you dont have to pay me despite losing.

I guarantee PigPen will not do this battle. I fucking guarantee it. Especially if he has to put his money up front, lol.

He's not going to let anyone hold the money. He'll say it's because he doesn't trust anyone, but in reality it's because he knows he can't beat SJD and would just be throwing 500 dollars away.

This battle isn't going to happen so let's keep the hate train moving.

If by some miracle it does happen, and Pigpen wins, and the money transfer actually happens- I'll concede my tournament spot to Pig.

He's cut from the same cloth as War Sperm. Excuses, excuses, excuses; all talk. He challenges ME and then won't put his money up. Fuckin idiot pig, it's easy as shit to transfer money from a debit card to Paypal. Unless you don't have the codes cuz it's actually your mom's debit card.

Dude piglet, I'm not doin any goddamn majority / supermajority votes. Whoever takes it takes it. You ain't Kreayshawn, man, I don't need no head start off you.

Bottom line.

1. We BOTH give our money to BigRed ahead of time.
2. We agree to be judged by Akac's friends. What they say goes.
3. One verse, 32 bars. Every other grudge battle has been this way. This is an MC battle, not no goddamn piglet fuckin ...PIG BATTLE. MCs spit bars. That's what they do. LL didn't spit no damn 8 bar verses at Canibus. KRS didn't spit no 8 bars at Shan. Common didn't spit no 8 bars at Cube. Nas would slap you upside your fat head.

Either you work within the system or you shut your face. Everybody wants to talk shit to me but of all the shit talkers, only Bill has had the balls to just step the fuck up.

Oh darling, I don't care about the shit talking. That just means you're full of shit while I eat caviar and sushi and sip the world's finest wines. And get head from Kreayshawn.

Well, it seems you have a legit cop out if the host can not come to an agreement. AKAC? Can you do something with this mess or does the pig get a pass?

Here are my two dealbreakers:

1. Someone else has to hold the money, cuz otherwise the pig won't pay.
2. Private judges, otherwise the pig will cheat.

That's all I'm askin. the pig seems to think this is too much, even though HE made the challenge.

MONEY

OK, here's what I propose in terms of money holding. I don't think the whole "I'll pay you once I've lost" thing is really that airtight, so I think we need to have one paypal holding the money, which I think leaves us two options:

OPTION A:

- Give money to BigRed's paypal (given he consents). He's a long time Newgrounds- er and would never live down losing the trust of the NG community if he ran with the $1000. It would be the end to ClabTrap, and a lot of his friendships on the site.

OPTION B:

- I hold money in PayPal. Beside the fact I'm a practicing Buddhist and wouldn't ever steal from anyone, I'll give you guys my personal contact details, facebook, etc etc, and give someone like Red my passwords to release if I steal the cash, so you guys can trust I won't run out on you.

Obviously, I trust myself more than Red, so I feel better about Option B, but its your money.

VERSE STRUCTURE

Now, the given format for these things is 32- 32, and the strength of that has been that both rappers have enough time to give it their absolute all. However, I think half the fun of this is gonna be the flips so I'd like to suggest we do three sets of sixteen for each rapper, like a proper battle. I can find a beat long enough, provided I have the backing of you guys: I feel that's a fair compromise between SJD's request for long verses and PiG's request for more verses.

What's the feeling towards theses proposals?

SHIT forgot about JUDGES

I can find around twenty people to judge objectively if you guys feel comfortable about that. I know a load of local guys who spend quite a lot of time on the rap scene, and they won't have heard of you guys before. I'll need about a week to get a working jury, but if I was to get nineteen judges would that feel kosher? They will generally be North London middle class/ working class teenagers like myself, mind.

I'm cool with all that except the proposed holders. I'm way too jewish to trust you or red with my thousand dollars....ahem...500 dollars.
Trust you because you're having a Buddhist phase? Trust red because he's got NG-respect? Nope. And contact details dont mean shit when we're not in the same country... and possession is 9/10.
I'd rather take the risk i might not get paid rather then the risk i might get ripped off, if you plan on continuing gambling Milton i advise you take that to heart before you end up like this fella....

Just weighing in here, I'm not sure using judges that are personal friends of the host is such a good idea. I mean, people can be easily swayed. Everyone likes to think their thoughts are individual but most of the time that's just not true. If one guy is all like "That SJD rocks, and I hate Pig" or vice versa, that may sway others to think the same. If you're gonna do it like that you need to make sure all the votes are made in private and no-one else knows how the others have voted.

I'm sure there's a name for that kind of voting but I don't remember what it is.

16-16-16-16 bars will make the battle far more personal and far better IMO, so hopefully SJD agrees to that.

You NEED to have a middle man holding the money Pig; it's the only way to ensure the loser doesn't flake out on the payment. If you don't agree to that then the battle won't happen and my prophecy will come true.

Just give it to Red; he won't run off with it. And if you're still scurred then draw up a contract and get it notarized or some shit. Either way, you need some middle man to hold the money, that's just how this kind of thing works.
