Unbias Review | Desmond Jackson Offers His Opinion on the Concept of Exclusivity Deals in Battle Rap

ILL Will

The following was taken from the Unbias Review group contributor, Desmond Jackson, who’s photoshop work is often featured on here on URLTV.TV. Does he have a point? Hit the polls to vote up or down to this statements…..

===================

‪#‎LightPhotoshop‬ ‪#‎URLDraft‬ ‪#‎WarningLONGArticleLol‬

“Just my opinion… I think PGs signing contracts are a smart idea. URL is a business and if they don’t take precautions like that people will use URL to boost their own career with no regards to what’s best for URL. Look at Bigg K. He is doing great on KOTD, but if it wasn’t for URL 85% of his fans wouldn’t know he existed and he probably wouldn’t be on KOTD. His music getting attention & him being on Sway in the Morning stems from URL. In a sense, the masses don’t care until you’re on URL or KOTD.

All of these PG cats were doing their thing long before they got on URL. But ask yourself how many of y’all gave them a chance before you either saw their PG or heard they were getting one? If I ran something like URL I couldn’t take the chance of giving you the major exposure I have to offer and expect loyalty from you without a contract because a lot of people only care about themselves and opportunity controls their loyalty. BET every year, major industry artist watching sets this platform for you to be seen. There is a large picture to be seen if you’re trying to see it. By being a known URL face, you can get paid to host events. If you’re smart you’ll have merchandise that people who fuck with you will be glad to purchase. It’s a business at the end of the day and there’s a long line of talent waiting and willing to sign.

Also for the record No battler needs URL. URL is only the platform, a major boost, a shortcut to the success most battlers want to see. Say an up and coming musician wants to perform all over the world and be on TV. Does he need a major deal? No, but a major deal would be the quickest way to do that. That’s why most up and coming battlers fight for that deal, because they know traveling 50 miles on foot is working harder not smarter. Working smarter is using a vehicle (URL) to travel those 50 miles.”

    this nigga pulled out a police sketch pad and could not read what he wrote.  This bullshit set battle rap back 40 years. I would hold my manhood cheap if I was Canibus.  My God this horse shit was the worse.  This was like watching a retarded kid trying to fuck a Buick

    First LL Cool J kill Canibus On wax, Now Dizaster is getting on you. Damn! Then on top of that, you had months to prepare for the battle. My opinion about canibus is that he though freestyle battle was like rapping on wax. You cant bring street fight into a boxing league. But his first round came out swinging

    I can’t stand DIZ….please stop showin this corny mafucka!

    • Logic

      Give Diz a shot. Everybody’s a genius these days. If he never gets a shot to show what he can do, how will you ever know? I’m a URL fan to the core, but there are plenty of match ups for Diz on the URL stage. Maybe he won’t get to battle Clips or Mook, but he’s proven that he can battle URL rappers. He’s entertaining. I think the crowd would be impressed by his presence and performance. He can do anything any other URL battle rapper can. It amazes me that we do all of this talking about how corny he is and then get overly hyped at a Bill Collector,Tech 9, DNA, Conceited, or Hollow Da Don verse. Now, that’s not saying that either of them are corny, but it is saying that he’d fit right in. I think he could battle Ill, Hollow, Cortez, ANYBODY from the Proving Grounds, Conceited, Young Kannon…the list goes on. Plus, URL has some rappers that spit corny bars. You don’t have to be street to get views and do numbers on a URL stage. Hell, most of the rappers that grace the stage aren’t. He’s born to be a battle rapper obviously, because he damn sure can’t write a song to save his life. Give him a shot.

      • Rexchap

        He’s had NUMEROUS chances…..Doesn’t matter what LEAGUE he’s in…he does what he does and THAT’S the problem!  He can’t beat URL battlers, cuz the crowd ain’t FALLIN for that shit he does!!!!!   Tired of the yellin and the FILLER and FAST RAPPIN !  You can’t fool URL crowds and they’ll boo the FUCK outta him!!!!  Nobody wants to see this  dude except his hard core CORNY fans!!!!

        • Logic

          I guess I’ll just (respectfully) disagree with you brother. If anything, New York has some of the most respectful fans. They’ll give you a shot. The question is can you KEEP the attention. We have no idea the answer to that question regardless of the assumptions we make. The thing is Diz’s brand can’t be broken by URL. Period. He’s already one of the biggest names in the sport. Losing or being disrespected by the URL crowd won’t affect his overall standing with the battle rap community. He’ll still get top names regardless. If anything, Smack should give him a shot for the business of it all. Battle MCs like Illmaculate, Dizaster, PH, Soul Khan, Rone, Moneybagz, Heartless, and Arsonal can HELP URL’s brand get to the stages it wants to be at. (i.e.-MSG) The longer the culture stays tied to the streets with only a few commercially marketable artists, the harder it will be for URL to remain at the apex of the sport. Seriously. Smack is the MOST RESPECTED, but if he wants to maintain his trajectory as, (in my opinion) the BEST, he’s got to open the doors to MCs from other popular leagues. That means KOTD and Grind Time artists should get shots. Not all of them, but the really popular ones at least.

    WTF, was Canibus spittin in his first round, wow the second way worst, third was super trash.  This is so epic for the biggest buzz rap battle that failed. 

  • waka

    The difference between KOTD and URL is culture. For me the caucasian take on battle rap culture just comes across corny. The camera work however is nice.

    DIZASTER IS NOTHING BUT FILLER, THAT SHIT DONT WORK IN THE URL, DIZASTER IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY GRINDTIME IS ON LIFE SUPPORT. DIZASTER WAS DIZTROYED BY DNA AND CANNIBUS WAS DESTROYED BY LL COOL J, THIS WAS ZOMBIE CANNIBUS, TRYING TO MAKE A COMEBACK. BOTH LOST, THIS WAS BAD AND KOTD LOST MONEY PAYING BOTH OF THESE HAS BEENS.

    • Rexchap

       EXACTLY……listening to DIZ is like tryin to play DOUBLE DUTCH and you don’t know when to jump in, cuz they turnin the rope too fast and when you DO jump in, you only get ONE JUMP before the rope fucks up!!!!!!

  • Markbuster

    When I heard Canibus pulled out a notepad during the battle I was disappointed, but actually seeing the myth be destroyed like that was entertaining.

    All his boys looked like they was about to start crying or some shit.

    This was a body bag. Keep it 100 race ain’t have shit to do with it. Still, Diz got way too much filler for URL, but he definitely has bars.

    Canibus knew this was going to be a straight up body bag and he tried to back out with lawyers and shit. Stress will have you doing all kinds of shit (including injuring yourself) to weasel your way out of an ass whupping.

    I don’t understand how so many lackluster rappers make it to the URL but Dizaster is not…. I don’t care for him as a person but in his battles truth be told he’s the only person who can show up to a battle on 24 hours notice and freestyle a 1000 bars… The man is an amazing battle rapper bring him over Smack this is getting ridiculous… We knew Canibus would get destroyed nothing to say on that…

    Dalyt Vs Rich Dolarz was a great battle also by the way…. R.I.P. K-Shine…. He got bodybagged

  • Itsbiggerthanhiphop101

    Dizaster equals a lot of yelling and filler, I cant believe this is the dude they put their support behind  on the fresh coast, when they got all these dudes that r better than him that rep CA. In all of GrindTime Diz was in reality like number 20 right under fox – but he got special treatment because he was friends with the right ppl. Dont get it messed up GT has ppl that can match up pound 4 pound with some URL heavyweights, they just back the wrong horse. Its like DC vs Marvel Comics. I could see Dirtbag Dan, Nocando, Illlmac, Johnny Storm, DumbFoundead, Dirt, PH, ATM,  Carter Deems, Sahtyre, Passwurds, plus many more not named here. Oh and KOTD they host ok but their rapping sucks so bad, maybe thats why the love Diz so much – he is very similar to there wack Holohan, Pat Stay is the only one worth mentioning. Smack pls set it up.

    So much hate on Diz, is it because he dont spit the same played out “thug life” and gun bars?

    He has taken on URL rappers already, from DNA, to Swave, to Arsonal 
    he can easily take on Hollow da don, hitman, even Calicoe. 

    Norbes already said they are definitely giving Diz a shot on URL this year, so his coming to URL soon. expect him. 

    • Rapfan432153217

      Expect him in the proving grounds.
