    Poetry League Season Champ
    Many Poetry and Topical HoF's
    Legendary Text Battle...

    EDIT:
    23x Poetry Hall of Fame
    Poetry Battle: Esco vs Jekyll

    Another one of the sites most accomplished as far as poetry goes. And one of my favorite poets on here along with Atti and Spoken.. He's an old head who has been ghost but not forgotten, so I figured I minus well give this a try.

    oh my fuck yes...

    His important for keeping the RB scene alive is equal to few others. The dude's talent is obvious. He wasn't just brilliant in his own context, but even now he's b better than other great writers on RB.

    Easily in

    He was basically the poster child for poetry on this site for the longest time. One of the most creative and original writers on this site...or any rap forum at that. Easily in.

    Not as a heralded as some of the other heads here, but definitely should be.
    As one of only a few peoples to stick around from the early days of rb poetry, it was undoubtedly his ability to continually elevate and remain relevant that allowed for his amazing longevity and made him a staple amongst a constant rotation of faces. I guess you could say that he was essentially a godfather type to those the writers we'd considered today as the upper-echelon.

    Aside from that he was good dude; approachable to peers and always an eager supporter of the scene who readily provided advice and feedback to up and comers and 'vet's alike...which is kind of rarity in this day and age.
    Thus I'd say, without hesitation, that he belongs.

    Yes.

    Good nom Jon.

    I'm on the fence. He was always dope to me, but at the moment I cannot remember for the life of me one line of his. Then again, he did beat me.

    I guess that's a yes. motherfucker.

    Given the vote count of 9-0, and the caliber of the writers who are voting him in, I'm closing this early and inducting him. Congratulations Prince.
