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.

Snuggie vs. Slanket

Who'd have ever thought that a blanket with sleeves,
Could start such a battle -- sure is hard to believe!


First came the Slanket, but it was expensive and buggy,
Leaving room for a new entrant, the low-priced Snuggie.



But wait, there's more, cuz if you order your Snuggie now,
They'll throw in a booklight, sure beats the Shamwow!


So who will emerge as the long term playa?
Slanket or Snuggie -- who's got the most flair?

Only time will tell but we'll soon get a preview,
On April 18th, with the battle of 2 live Jews.

At the end of the Snuggie Pub Crawl in the heart of Chi-town,
It's the Slanket vs. Snuggie rap battle and only 1 crown!

Snuggie Won! Ya heard. Das my werd. Video forthcoming.
