These challenges are designed to help you improve every aspect of your rapping, from rhyme schemes to the use of metaphors.

We’re paying attention who puts the work in. For every challenge you attempt, you gain 1 point. Once you gather enough points, you get promoted in the ranks, get a tag and some perks with that. For more information, please refer to the community constitution. Only registered users can earn a rank.

This scenario will test your ability to navigate your way in the world of hip hop. Only the wisest get to win! I’ll present you with a scenario and you’d have to tell me what would you do if that happened to you.


It’s been awhile since anybody has challenged your rapping skills, but there’s this guy! He’s new in the neighborhood, but he happens to be getting the eye of the public, he’s all over the local clubs, he’s paying, god knows how for commercials and he’s also a very skilled rapper. But he’s a fool! He’s one helluva hater, who uses his talent to rap about bullshit that most of the times irritates you!

One day you get to meet this new guy, and by chance a close friend of yours introduces you. It just so happens that this rapper is a distant family member of your friend’s! The fella likes to talk about himself primarily, so he starts the bullshit again, and you carefully choose your words in attempt to not insult him, while telling him the truth and sharing your opinion with him! But then again, he’s a fool and laughs at you for saying that, even though you were polite! He automatically challenges you to a battle, like any “offended” rapper would do…

How do you act? Do you fight the guy, even though he’s got more respect than you? Do you risk your relationship with your friend by going into an argument with the douchebag, or do you secretly tell your friend that this guy annoys you, and then move on with your life? If you decide to battle the guy, how do you proceed? Do you strike his flaws, or do you shout out the difference between the two of you, or maybe both? Explain your ways and share with us your thought process!

    so I’ma come at it like this:
    my friend should already know how I get down so him even puttin us in the same space says he is cool w/ what goes. or at least he is not naive about the interaction.

    aight, so now dood done challenged me: I’ma be like “bet, lets hop on a beat and see who can outdo the flow”. whatever it takes to get us on a real song spitting some real bars. that way, if he really is the local prince, I’m now able to access his fans while showing my fans what my flex is like compared to others. if not, and he wanna go straight battle, we gon’ do it right now. gets the phones out so your folks can see how I did you. no time to go prep and write. and if he wanna do some scheduled shit, i’ma go study his flow and bust that ass w/ my style and his own.

    He’s a fool and he challenged to battle me and I hate him and his music, this scenario is very inclined towards us.

    I’d tell him if he wants to battle, do it on a major platform. Do it in one of the local clubs and destroy him in his own den. If he backs out, I’d put out diss records and try to pull up personal info since he is my distant relative.

    So the close friend who introduced me to him won’t break ties with me because I could just say the new guy started it all. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Give him a strong intimate warning and make sure I walk away from the situation for the time being. If he has credibility in the neighborhood, I would want him to ambush me in a freestyle or whatever the case may be, make him go first and make it look I am avoiding him. And then take him down. Just simply going for a battle would make me feel desperate. Secondly, in a simple one on one battle where people judge, the people tend to ignore a great margin in favour of the person they have primarily put a halo on.
    Lastly, even though he is a fool, there is a risk that battling him would hurt my credibility, because he gotta have some skills. Response to an ambush is much easier.

    As far as my friend is concerned, all my friends know the kind of person I am. He probably knows that I don’t value all the social nicisities. But still if he really don’t want me to get involved, I won’t .

      So you follow your principles, but you’ve got that idea of a tactical advantage, you apply a psychic attack on that guy, by faking that you’re a coward, waiting for him to open up his weak spot by going first, but then you got the skills to fuck him up the moment after… That’s some sick content, man! I should take notes! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I would first tell the friend that his realeative and me don’t see eye to eye and I don’t want this to become more than it is a case of a mad hater.Then make it clear that if he didn’t chill that the problem would escalate with the annoying guy present to hear this statement. I always give people a warning but, if he wants to battle I can handle that. First, I would make sure he understands the difference in maturity mentally and lyrically; start calling up his false and childish statements while, playing up the fact he is big talk yet really lame. Once the battle has finished I will reevaluate my position on him but, if the disses continue to be out of line a fight may be the only way to shut him up but, may not stop him afterwards anyway. If I whoop him though all that talk won’t matter and I would be satisfied knowing he can’t compare to my skills in rhyme or combat.

    Walk away, I don’t need to deal with his garbage. By giving him what he wants, I’m admitting that we’re equals or that he deserves my time. Instead, I’d walk away, put more effort in my grind, and outshine him in every aspect of the craft: including sportsmanship. He can stay in his own lane, it won’t take him very far.

      That’s more of a moralist approach, you’re not actually proving that you’re better than he is, or shutting him up, like the others would do. You’re simply out-classing him…

    I would 100% battle him. I wouldn’t want to battle him then and there, if want to battle him with a crowd viewing. As most people know from my past, I can’t stand people with a God-complex. I’d want to put him in his place and make sure every own sees him bleed

      Many rappers have this “god complex”, and that’s exactly what I’m trying to force out of this site… The Legion idea is that we’re together in this. We all have the same purpose, to get better and eventually earn something out of it… Why would we diss each other and compare one another? Haha, I’m just joking, this is a competition, but we truly should remain sportsmanlike… Have you noticed that today, everything I published is themed “diss” and “hate”. Even the daily challenge is about diss: https://rappingmanual.com/rc-better-rap-bars-rhymes-workshop-2/ and I’ve been commenting stuff that’s scandal, and making people think that I have that “god complex” but it’s the ones who really DO HAVE IT, that react so fiercly… Do you feel how I forced their nature out? And all of that made the bed for the release of the battle series… Hope you don’t build a bad opinion about me, just because I allowed myself to enrage everyone in hopes of getting the best lyrical history of this website after the battles begin…

        I’m gonna be honest you give off the god complex vibe, and it’s not you pretending, its your actual character. Your name is iLegion, you try to call the community the legion, and to be honest with you, I kind the whole legionnaire references you make bothersome. It seems you are trying to create a following/put your name or forms of it in as many places as possible. These are things you have done from the first day. Also you rubbed people the wrong way when you talk about how flawless you are and how untouchable. If you are to do that A, make sure it’s true, and B, have proof of credibility. And again, I’m not trying to be a dick, but you are nowhere near flawless (no one on this site is). This is the reason you are now in the bad predicament of the battle going on. It’s not a battle that should have even happened. And in regards to challenges and shots thrown at Martin, that has a lot to do with what happened to the site and how it lost its whole community from lack of administration. He has a great site that has help so many rappers develop, but many people feel like they along with the site was abandoned. We happy he is back working on the site, and trust me we are happy to see it running decently well, but some people are skeptical of this is just a temporary doc and if it will die once more in a few weeks. That being said, the site just needs to be kept up with and everyone work together and realize everyone needs to earn respect from each other. If you ain’t humble, you’ll get called out (not you, I mean anyone).

        That’s just my .02, I keep everything real. I don’t look for issues, but I will speak my mind.

          I’m feeling a bit embarrassed, but I guess there’s nothing but getting over it at this point… Fuck this shit, you’re right. We ain’t legion, only I am Legion! It’s my rap name, the thing I get recognized with and it has nothing to do with this community, except that I might call you legionaries from time to time, just cuz I really think it’s cool… Or maybe I won’t use it, I don’t know, maybe because of the fucking “subordinate feeling” that it gives to the person I’m talking to… I admit I tried to idolize this figure of the Legion, but I didn’t do it to idolize myself, but to make us feel more united, before we started fighting over a vote or something like that… I wanted to make it so that every time there’s a conflict, things would get resolved without anger, like it does between brothers and true friends… I just didn’t find the right way to do it… I’ve talked about this with Martin before I even started and he warned me that you might not feel it the right way, but, I just had to try, cuz it’s fucking me… Anyway, I think in time you’ll get to understand my persona more… I’m really into honesty, I don’t deny my mistakes and I love change for the good… I just need people like you with sharp minds to enlighten my delusions…

        you didn’t strike me as this type, I’ve read the stuff you write and you always remind me of a guy who has principles and is generally a positive person. But I guess that doesn’t get in the way of being brutal to the people who’re annoying…
