So are you to have 6 polls then? Because i think you'd be better off splitting each bracket in half and having 12, or even splitting each one into 3

Bubutbut you have someone like Antipop Consortium in the 2nd bracket, and Erykah Badu in the last? I don't think she's obscure at all.

Otherwise, **** YES BRING IT ON.

Any predictions?
I'm hoping to see Talib Kweli porgress, but I think the 3rd bracket is the most solid. There will be tough choices ahead when it comes down to them.

Yeah, I was looking and that 3rd bracket is solid. However, the first bracket is absolutely stacked. Half of those mc's/groups could win the entire thing, let alone just that bracket.

fourth bracket is sick: blackstar, murs, del, big l.


however, i think that both the fifth and sixth brackets don't even need to exist.

I think the fith has some potential. The 6th seems mostly gimmicky though.

If Wu-Tang, Public Enemy, ATCQ, Company Flow and Cannibal Ox do not progress i will lambast this whole concept as an abject failure

Wow, people have such short memories, the brackets don't mean anything.
