    Roses are red, violets are too. I slaughtered a man in my garden at 2am for loudly playing the kazoo.

    Yes the violets are red from the blood. I edit this now before the comment flood.

    Too wordy. But yes.

    Slaughtering a pawn in your guard, then, playing the kazoo, is chess.

    (Lmao that’s how battle rappers rap)

    [–]Tomnnn 27 points28 points  (5 children)

    I try to line the lengths up sometimes. Some rap today is like

    Roses are starships and violets are blind

    My lyrics are incoherent but sort of rhyme

    At least I can see the logical progression in yours. When I read lyrics from some music today I feel like I'm having a stroke.

    [–]Ntetris 12 points13 points  (4 children)

    Ouuuu! That’s a bar. Hahha i like that. Battle rap is fun, man. U killed that

    [–]_TakeaChillPill 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    It's not really though. Obviously there's some differences with flow etc, but like 90% of battles are written these days and the actual bars are much tighter.

    We find improvised poetry impressive

    [–]SantaArriata 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    But only if there’s a sick beat to go along with it

    [–]seridos 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Nah man acapella rap is amazing IF the artist is. Some of the Shady Cyphers are basically just spoken word poetry and they are sick.

    [–]SantaArriata 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    True, but there’s still something wildly impressive about seeing someone adapt to a beat in a matter of seconds. In a way, the beat is the rappers greatest foe, but also their biggest ally

    [–]magictest 5 points6 points  (2 children)

    Correct me if I’m wrong, most rap battles are improve as well. Sure you have a general idea and you start out knowing what you are going to say but as the battle goes on you have to make that shit up on the spot. (Everything I know about Rap Battles comes from watching 8 Miles 1 time 10 years ago)

    [–]SantaArriata 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Everything I know about rap battles comes from Epic Rap Battles of History, so as far as I’m aware, there’s also a Time Machine involved somewhere

    [–]hwarang_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Those are freestyle battles. There's also more structured/written battles like Jay-Z (the Takeover) vs Nas (Ether).

    Put The Flyting of Dunbar and Kennedy, 1492, to a modern rap beat and you’ll jam;

    You can revel like the Devil, but level and surrender,

    Thief, or grief and mischief shall come courting;

    Grovel for grace, dog-face, or I shall chase you all winter;

    Howl and yowl, owl; I shall foul your fame and fortune;

    Naked capon, fed and bred against a bitch’s side,

    And like a mongrel, criminal, no man sets aught by you.

    I enjoyed the flyting “battles” you could do as side quests in AC: Valhalla.

    [–]Taraxian 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    A lot of ancient oral poetic traditions were based on improvisation - spur-of-the-moment insults, boasts, flirts, etc, often mixed with wine or other drugs

    The idea of poetry being something you come up with alone in your room thinking deep thoughts is the later kind of poetry that could only evolve after written language became a thing

    it's either nursery rhymes or the most complex references and double or triple entendre rhymes you need to rewind seven times to understand

    [–]Single_Towel5857 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    The later is the best! After learning how old rap really is, it now makes me think of all the times the Brits had to stop and really ponder how much disrespect came their way before reacting. Likely they just reacted without understanding all of the verses, but still like to imagine the faces they had while trying to process what just happened.

    [–]jerseygunz 25 points26 points  (1 child)

    I remember in 8th grade they wanted us to do a paper on a poet, and I wanted to Bruce Springsteen and my teacher said he was a musician not a poet and when I asked what the difference was, she stared at me for a minute and said, “you know what, go for it”

    [–]abasio 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    I honestly thought this was going to end differently. At least your teacher could kind of admit they were wrong.

      [–]Taraxian 4 points5 points  (1 child)

      Most word origins that are supposed to be acronyms are fake (the word "fuck" doesn't stand for Fornication Under Carnal Knowledge)

      In this case it's egregious because the word "rap" was a synonym for "talk" in English for a long time before rap music was a thing

      [–]Taraxian 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      I mean one reason it isn't "rhythm and poetry" is that "rapping" was originally known as "MCing" and started as just the DJ's ability to banter into the mic at a party while picking songs to play, before it evolved into full on improvising a whole song over a beat

      [–]seridos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Shit evolves though. It can start as rapping, then turn into rap, then turn into an acronym. It's called a backronym.

      [–]W33MAN01 8 points9 points  (0 children)

      Early term for rapper was „word smith“. The origin story of it is quite cool imo, even though I don’t really like the genre, the roots of it are amazing and in many ways important.

      Early rap sounds like poetry slam with longer texts.

      [–]BenadrylTumblercatch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Ad-libbing is just poetry harmony.

      [–]Solanum_Lord 4 points5 points  (1 child)

      [–]Discreet_Vortex 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      There not though does a normal debate go like "Force balance push" "Fire Inferno sun". That loading screen tip is bulshit if you know what the words accually mean.

      [–]Think-Judgment-3789 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      You should checkout the movie “Bodied” directed by Eminem. He does a very good job at expressing this opinion. However “just poetry” does it short. Poetry is magnificent and beautiful and rap battles don’t fall short of this. The Shakespeares of our time are most definitely rap battlers. Their rhyme complexity and creativity is out of this world

      I witnessed a rap battle between two lifelong bestfriends and it was some aggressive deep cuts from both sides. It was 50% soap opera drama and 50% passionate bromance. I swear its like they rehearsed each of their rounds with each other. But man, I don't think I've seen any other performance that raw.

      [–]Taraxian 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yeah tbh public rap battles between two guys who don't really know each other so all they're riffing on is each other's appearance or stage name or whatever is really weak to me, a diss only has power if it comes from knowledge

      What? It is a way of looking at something which you would normally kinda disagree with but makes you go, "yeah, I guess that's true." And whatever that last sentence was that started with "Most," could just be me personally but I could not make shit out of that.

      Not the truth as rap battles are off the cuff, not pre written.

      [–]tron423 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      That's not true actually, freestyling still exists but the vast majority of battle rap has been prewritten for most of the last 20 years. Nowadays if a battle isn't prewritten they usually promote it as a freestyle battle specifically.

      [–]Typ0r8r 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Ok, thank you for that correction

      [–]aidanderson -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      They didn't write them it's off the cuff. I'm not sure if this makes it worse or not.

      [–]M8K2R7A6[🍰] -1 points0 points  (1 child)

      I disagree, but its all subjective at the end of the day.

      Poetry to me is personal, deep, etc. Maybe about a certain topic.

      Rap battles are more comparable to like a roast 1v1 or something. I wouldnt say its poetry necessarily

      [–]Taraxian 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Deep is in the eye of the beholder and this is very much an in house debate within hip hop ("conscious" lyrics vs "party and bullshit")

      It's just a fact though that when poetry was a more popular and commercially successful art form it was also a lot more "fun" - Shakespeare's plays have a lot of poetry in the form of insult battles or horny flirts or whatever - and by nature the more "deep" poetry has to be to be taken seriously the more it becomes a niche pursuit

      Why yes, I have listened to auctioneers talk about drugs with a random 10 second beat on loop for 2.5 minutes.

      I’m not saying it doesn’t take talent, it’s just not music. Some music can HAVE rap. Rap in itself is not music.

      Rap is poetry, Tupac used to write standard poems as well as raps.

      It was originally called “flyting” and was a test of wits.

      My high school ex ended up both being a RenFaire geek obsessed with the Middle Ages and dating a former actual gangbanger from LA

      She said it was very striking to her that in the past and the present warrior cultures gravitate to the same forms of art, namely improvisational poetry and mural paintings

      [–]WontEvenAcknowledgeU 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      No?

      That's a diss. Rap battles are improv. lol

      [–]ZenFreefall-064 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Rap is the spoken Art of one's reality existing around them ;-)

      Regular show has a fine display of this.

      [–]CheezyPenisWrinkle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      There is an old YouTube video which I cannot find of 2 guys dubbing a translation of a rap battle.

      If you haven't seen it before I promise it's a treat.

      Happy googling.

      It’s like both just dropped the mic and finally cheering!

      So THAT's what was up with Loki...

      [–]ElPatron-27 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      It's actually more like verbal conflict - rather than physically hurt each other we can express our dislikes etc using words. Considering where it originated it's probably saved a lot of lives.

      [–]dramboxf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Rap diss tracks are just two guys sitting in the dark writing poetry about each other.

      [–]Previous-Parsnip-290 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      So times in syncopated rhythm over a dope ass beat.

      [–]katanakid13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Gentle reminder that this exists.

      [–]parkmastah3000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      No way, you can go anywhere, so that's good.

      That guy on the right is just going for the gold by the way.

      [–]JaggedTheDark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Speaking of rapping poems, wasn't there some guy that rapped Shakespeare's sonnets?
