Pick 4 emcees from ANYWHERE & ANY ERA i.e. Time Machine mode is active & lets do battle fantasy soccer/basketball/football style!

Rules:
All emcees will be rated on merit basis in the following catergories:

1) Technique (flow, breath, control, mic technique etc)
2) Gramar aka use of language skills (vocab, punchlines, smilies, metaphors etc)
3) Swagger aka Style/ Presence/ Impact etc (also important in a battle)

heres my team:

Starter: Nas circa 1996 - It was written era
2nd Leg: Prokid circa 2003-4
3rd leg: Black Thought circa 1996 - Illadelph Halflife era
Finisher: Rakim circa 1988 - Paid in Full Era

BRING IT ON!

ok...

The supreme team

1. Ghostface KILLAH - "Supreme Clientele"/1997-2000 era

2. Prodigy - "The Infamous" to "H.N.I.C" / when he was still on drugs era

3. Tragedy Khadafi - Queensbridge veteran from Juice crew until now

Next I would go for Lord Finesse but now I need someone with some charisma... what do you get if you combine the talents of MC Slick Rick, Pimp Too $hort and the laid backness of a Richie Rich:

4. Devin The Dude - "J.T.T.L" - "To the Xtreme" era

its a wrap!

Yah I think Rick is having trubbles again...hey Rodney has gone so far above just plain hip hop..he's worked wit everybody.

I think your Cape Team is too small... the Cape Contingent would have  like 5 entrys.... Your selection could be called "The Great Unwashed" :lol:
Then theres The Flats Cla**ics:
Shaheen (circa 1994)
MC Khalil
Garlic Brown
Devious

The Durrrty Hurts
Jaaki
D-Mus
JitsVinger
Illuminate

The Import Chooners
TripLife
Mambila (circa 1999) The UCT Years
KingPin (circa 1999) The UCT Years
Kaptin (circa 2000, Groundworks story arc) (I know he from here but he always been from some place else 8O )

Ok so 4 Cape entrys.......As to from Elsewhere......
The Ruff Kutz
2pac  (circa Makaveli)
ill Bill (doesn't matter from when he always been hard)
Immortal Tech
Ra** Kas

Tha a**ault Squad (cos they'd a**ault you if you dissed them)
Prodigy
Scarface
Billy Danze
ODB

The Ill Skill Connect
Big L
Canibus (young, young here when he first came up)
Biggie
Rakim

OK we agree Rakim is  anatural and devastating finisher.... But Check my Ruff Kutz team...fine you got Rakim closing up but even if he had Thought warmin up for him...  
BUT...............Tupac just opened wit pure Charisma, mad breath control and raw emotion.......... Ill Bill comes wit hard, short, mad rugged punches...opens up the cuts Pac just opened.........................Then Immortal Tech...OMFG!!! 8O ... the pain and suffering... oh the humanity!!!!!!........AND as if thats not enuff....Its Nature of the Threat ALL Over again.......concepts requiring thesis-type research and punches and metaphors to cause pain to make demons cry....... 8O  8O  8O  8O  The carnage would be so fantastic as to be ALMOSt unwatchable!!!!!!!!!!

Even wit your Rakim. finishin... I think Thought and Rakim would be tryin to climb a mountain that just keeps getting higher and less hospitable.

The a**ault Team would just shoot their opponents

No No No you, set this up as a team battle.....we know one on one Ra got Ra**... BUT we talkin the run on carnage that my team finishing in Ra** Ka** would do....come on,I rate Thought, but he would be rattled by the onslaught delivered b4 Tech even started so tech just got to deliver the coup de grace.... then Tech begins hedging the bets against Ra....and hey Ra** Ka** AINT NO SLOUCH>>>ONE OF THE BEST OF ALL TIME.....and you yes Ra ids better than him, but it aint a floor wiping its a TKO to Ra...Kas could hurt him...If any1 can..Ka** can.....How can you...a professed lover of the art like so many others...still be sleepin on Ka**' skills, he aint just nature of the threat...Soul on Ice is fiyah top to bottom..Ra**asination is too hot, and its sink into obscurity is a f***ing travesty of bad management and a sad and wholy unjustifiable neglect of a serious and consummate book in the Hip Hop Lexicon.

Also remember, you self sed how inportant Presence and the appreciation of that is...and this is why very few emcees could stand to Ra, beyond lyrical...He is Ra.... but Ka** skrik fo niks man..he'd know his opponent but you cant let your adversary get the upper hand in the whole psyche-out stakes... Ka** would stand and deliver........ Ra, when you look at the whle package is FOOKIN formidable but lookin at it again... he got a lyrical advantage ...but not super huge one... their content is comparable.... Ra got the edge in delivery... his flow is at least two levels up....Ra got the GOD persona.. bigger than it all and Ka** got the " i don't give a f***, I know the truth, i'm a fighter and I don't go down easy" He's the kind of scrapper whole fight till the end, spiting wit his last breath..."Strapped a 6 foot condom on, gonna f*** the world..."
