View Full Version : Similar Lines Sharking of Rhymes

When battling and you see a line that may be similar to an artist does that AUTOMATICALLY MEAN HE IS DISQUALIFIED??
Or if it is exactly the same word for word do we consider that a forfeit or Disqualification??

Please post your thoughts....

or what if you see them do it.....5 times from 1 song...........but yes i think disqualification is good

coincidences happen, but word for word is reaching.
multiple times in a verse is fuckin rediculous and fairly obvious.

i think Tek's First Bar resembles A Familiar RZA Verse....i know im not the only one that sees it, so obviously he (i think) might of bit, bits and pieces of it, ya know..just sayin that ive seen this more then a few times on here, thats the truth, i wouldnt lie about it

once is ok just because of coincidence but if it's more than once in a verse...pretty shady

hmmmmm you know I thought someone was biting Immortal technique a while back in the temple....

he used the same words and I called him out but Spok3n found the verse and it was similar but still different...It made me think a lot of users can do the same thing

every rhyme leaves a blueprint niggas could bite that very same blueprint & say something different but it will sound similar, I seen & heard it done alot

I agree should be instant disqualification, there are a couple of cats that have done it in here and its gone unnoticed by most. not mentioning any names cough MIDAS.

Shutup ninja my nigga didn't bite, even if he did his verses still raped you hard as hell. Go hit the weights and come back when you can handle heavier bars.

Everything I write is straight off the top of my head, if somethings similar idk it's gotta be coincidential. If I hear something that sounds familiar in my verses I try to google it to see if something pops up na mean.

You enter the battlefield (which says do not enter unless lyricaly gifted). Therefore you should not have to bite someone else's rhyme you gotta use your own (lyricaly gifted).

If its a 100% word for word bite = Disqualification.

Its its a bite but not word for word = eg.. Lose one vote which means you need one more.

Ofcourse just an idea but just so we can get some kind of structure to the above topic. People help out to work out some SOLID rules. I know its quite a touchy/opinonated topic thats why we need solid structure so that it doesn't bend cause I can see people bending it.

So we need to work out something fair that the majority agree on.
