The 5 WORST rap battles of all time

The battle culture has given us some fantastic (free) entertainment over the years. Loaded Lux vs Hollow Da Don. Hollohan vs Pat Stay. Illmaculate vs Bigg K. For unwinding with a beer and a big smelly one at the end of the day, you can’t beat good battle rap.

KOTR: Going Ham in Skaterham event review

The dictionary defines disrespect as ‘a lack of respect or courtesy.’ Synonyms include mockery, scorn and opprobrium…

…Actually I have no idea where I was going with that. Sorry. I’m Bard, here’s a recap of the last KOTR event in Caterham.

The culture needs more doubles battles

So I suppose if I’m going to start saying ‘we’ in public when referring to King of the Ronalds, I should really start writing the occasional blog, shouldn’t I? I started coming up with some clickbait Unilad-style shite, the kind of uninspired wank that means they won’t let me write for Battlerap.com.

As a result, I actually remember precious little of the event. However, I am a humble servant of this battle culture, so I’ll do what I can to immortalise this (probably) fantastic event for the ages. I’m Bard, this is the KOTR blog, let’s get disrespectful.

KOTR Presents: Rise Of The Footsoldier event review

Disrespect came to Acton last Saturday, with King of the Ronalds bringing four and a half big slices of battle rap to the people. Battle rap just like your nan used to make before she went to live in Basingstoke. I’m Bard, I’m here to let you know what went down and no, your nan didn’t go to live in Basingstoke. She’s dead.
