    ditch your idea and buy some decks...

    Don't add to the problem that is MCing.

    It is not a talent.

    Look, I've turned this thread into a ban the mcs thread! :mr_cool:

    Dont listen to this twat, theres always room for a good MC....get some lyrics down and find a DJ you can flow with, then get some CD's made and hand them out to your local promoters....good luck!!

    "Don't bother" is hardly good advice if he wants to start MC'ing....who knows we may have the next Stamina/SP/Dynamite/[insert ur favourite mc here] on our hands!!

    OK, I apologise for my comments, but that is the way I feel...

    By all means if MCing is something that interests someone and they want to be one then they should do what they want to do...

    Just please don't turn out like Skibadee, if I had any words of wisdom to give they would be to add a bit of soul and melody to your MCing, rather than just mindless crack-fuelled babble!

    Start studying Conrad, Stamina and the likes.

    Good luck... :)

    Study Skiba and Fun? Not much to study really... He'd be a straight A student within minutes! :D

    id agree to that....

    but you also have to have your own style, totally different to any other mc.

    Lol Condrad is sick deffo get inspiration from him, LTJ Bukem @ Total K 93 he was pretty hype on that set. Skibadee is good to a degree, he gets the crowd going its just that dog noise and random weird shit, he used to be much better, but I've tooken your advice and I've been looking about and I'm going to start Djin' aswell as I need a hobbie.
    I've heard Skibba's on crack is it true?
