Top Ten Rules to Live By for Rap Battles

Just wanted to share this twitspiration...

Rule #10 of rap battles: No props! This ain't Carrot Top. (Ahem, @davidblevy bustin' out the phone with the line "Tell 'em all on Twitter")

Rule #9 of rap battles: If you're not ready with a rhyme, say "Yo, yo, yo, check it out" over and over 'til you got one!

Rule #8 of rap battles: Act like you've been there before! (Also applies to playoff games.)

Rule #7 of rap battles: Don't repeat a rhyme you used earlier. (Guilty as charged from @snuggiepubcrawl)

Rule #6 of rap battles: If you mess up, keep flowin'! (If the crowd is as wasted as you, they won't know the difference!)

Rule #5 of rap battles (wife's in the bathroom): Don't wear a slanket! (Ya heard, @davidblevy!?!)

Rule #4 of rap battles (per Lisa Goldman): Keep your rap battle rules separate from date night. (Busted)

Rule #3 of rap battles: It's not always what you say, it's how you say it (ie, play to the crowd)

Rule #2 of rap battles: make fun of yourself first to take the ammo away from your opponent.

Top 10 rules for rap battles. #1: always have a fall-back, go-to line. Mine is hit 'em with the baseball bat, I'm not the dog, I'm the cat.
