Is Jaz The Rapper “The Queen of the Ring”?
JayBlac asks Is Jaz The Rapper The Queen of the Ring? My answer is NO. Atleast not legitimately until the battle rap community recognizes her as such. What would it take for Jaz to be coronated “Queen”? What does it take to really run shit? Is simply beating 40 in a battle enough to do the trick? I don’t think so.
So let’s be serious for a moment… We’ve all heard the news that 40 B.A.R.R.S. choked twice and forfeited the third round vs Jaz. Jaz has complained that she feels cheated. She feels that 40 didn’t really put up a fight. If that’s the case, Jaz should’ve capitalized. Hopefully Jaz freestyled or rebuttled the chokes atleast. Classic battles are classic because they are memorable. If the 40 B.A.R.R.S. vs Jaz battle is not memorable it’s because neither had a memorable performance. We’ll just have to wait for that footage to drop.
What is it exactly that made the people fall in love with 40 B.A.R.R.S? If I had I to answer that question on behalf of battle rap, I would say:
4. Work Ethic/Drive
JayBlac: Does beating 40 B.A.R.R.S. make you the queen of the ring?
Jaz: I think it should but everything I do has an excuse behind it.
Excuses, excuses,excuses. What kind of a queen are you if you are making excuses already? I once heard Jaz say that she has faced stiffer competition than 40 has. I think Jaz was on AFR when she was told that 40 B.A.R.R.S. has more impressive wins. Jaz’s response was that she had stiffer comp than 40 but then she turned around and says that her comp always chokes. Well, which one is it Jaz? 40 managed to have impressive battles with weak comp? I fux wit’chu but you can’t have it both ways.
According to the screenshot at the end of JayBlac’s vlog, 40 is at the very least on hiatus [fingers crossed]. I guess she’s earned a break. After all, it’s only July and she’s already done more battles this year than Jaz has done in the last 3 years. Jaz is nice, but maintaining a throne, a movement, a continuous demand for excellence is something she has yet to do. She battles at her leisure, not at the behest of the fans. To me Jaz is more of a cabinet member than a queen. But we’ll see what she can do if 40 really does step down. A queen has responsibilities. Can JTR really push the culture forward and rep for the females? Jaz the ball is in your court…
