Let's be honest. Earlier VERSUS did not pay performers for performances, SLOVO does not pay now (as far as I know). If you are a promoted rapper, then participating in battles is wasting your time, which is money. After all, they already know you, plus defeat is a blow to your image.
Oxy battles because he is handsome.
because they don't need it. Babangida also noticed that this was a 3-round rhyme memorization contest, and not a musical battle. plus on battles the most important factor is charisma, so you don't always need to associate battle ms and rappers
In fact, it makes no sense to analyze this question for a long time.
Still, making music and fighting are not the same thing. Yes, battle rap is one of the directions, but not everyone can do it. This is the same as asking a judoka why he does not practice boxing, because he owns martial art :)
The ex-member of the Centr-Guf group has a track about rap battles, in which there are the following lines: "So, battles, in my opinion, classes for watakata
Freestyle at least should be invented
And to fuck up the opponent standing opposite and consider it a talent
It should be ashamed, annoying. " The rapper believes that there is no point in battles, doing this means wasting time and you don't need special talent for this activity.
They are afraid to lose to Khovansky

Versus can break fate. We know examples. I think it's wise not to go to battle if you can only be cool in the studio. And often famous rap artists do not understand all this movement, for them rap is a little different and they do not accept dirt. Mentioning relatives, vystebyvanie, deconstructing an opponent. It is necessary to grow up on this, attend such events, listen to a separate genre of battle rap, and let's say to Yegor Creed it's funny to go to versus. And Timur's folder will not let me in)
And this is not a condemnation. To each his own. Versus is not the only place where you can find hype, audience and grow. Nowadays it is customary to fap on versus, it is worth accepting the fact that it gave the culture a lot of nuggets, but rap should not be considered exclusively versus. It is also outside of it. Although, rivalry has always made you grow. I have a double opinion.
Everyone knows the example of ms, when they are powerful and brilliant on battle, but in music ... well, it would be better if they did not get into it. And vice versa. It's just that if you're a shoemaker, you shouldn't paint pictures. People should understand who they are and not try to be who they are not. Ms are different, in a word. Being good both in battles and in music is damn hard. Although ... sometimes you're in battles and in music - the bottom. Don't be bothered. Thank you for your attention.
I have been asked many times, but I think that taking part in them is pointless. I will spend a month of my life preparing. Oksimiron says he writes in two weeks. I admit that I could also keep within, but there is a possibility that in fact I will need more - I will have to write the text, learn the opponent's weaknesses. But, firstly, I would not like to see anyone there - well, with whom? We are different, these are generally different stories. Who is there and what to prove? It is not clear with whom to leave, even if he defeated someone there. To whom and what will I prove? I have already proved everything to myself, and I just feel sorry for the time. Therefore, I would rather finish off a couple of my strong tracks during this time - they are more useful later. In general, I just don't see any sense for myself. There are, of course, a couple of people whose challenge I would accept, but they themselves have no need to go there.
Probably, if I wrote about myself (in general, I can do it, in principle, I can to write - even at school I often noted the weak points of teachers, knew how to put pressure on them) - I could make a normal diss, but here too ... You have to have patience to listen to so much shit. I just don't want to.
Will more people come to the concert? No. Less will probably not come either. And there is no point in wasting time. I have never positioned myself as a battle MS. I, well, of course have such verses, but I have never put a strong emphasis on such. I don't see anything wrong with that, but I'm not interested in it myself - I can look, laugh and turn it off. By the way, there are really cool issues. Versus, it seems to me, raised the level of MS in the whole country.
Another thing is that because of the same Versus, many begin to surf the Internet, in fact, any more or less known to someone there chitaka maybe you can write on the social network or record in the track some insults of a personal nature, for which in real life they would just smash his face right away, and on this still try to hype, thereby trying to attract the attention of the new public to his person. Of course, when he meets, he is unlikely to repeat this, and immediately a completely different song begins, but that's another question. And it's not a fact that the person you want to ask for his words addressed to you will not immediately run to the police after that. Although it is simply impossible to rush to look for everyone - especially if he is not yet from your city - it is simply impossible (though, look, Basta seems to be doing it so far, but I don't understand how he manages everything and whether he sleeps at all). A striking example of such a situation is what Khovansky wrote and said about Noize MC. Maybe I am adhering to outdated views and principles, but in my opinion this is wrong.
2) you will have to take a ghostwriter with you =)
3) there is no time, you have to work out the album recording and wander around
4) repeat the above in a circle =) =) =)
1) Many of them are too much in demand, they have a busy touring schedule.
2) There is a certain image, so participation in such projects or losing in battle can negatively affect the image.
3) Versus and the word - sites are more for beginners MC - give way to the young.
4) Participation in battles requires creativity)
5) They are more pop performers, and battles more underground culture, conflict may arise.
What delay or gap in legislation do they use?
