I’ll have to see what I have. That was so long ago (over a decade) and I feel super old. Back then, PBW and Jeff Jank used to pop up in the comments occasionally. I asked Jank if Stones Throw could do best battles…he was like “Why don’t you guys just do it?” or something like that. So I was like “aight, bet” and that’s how it started, basically.JoaGymshoe wrote: ↑Wed Nov 23, 2022 10:28 am
oh word?.. that's dope man.. yeah, we're still carrying the torch.. ST basically got tired of upkeeping the messageboard and hosting the beat battles
and just terminated that part..
we kept the STBB part so that guys like you migh stumble onto us once again.. I like to think of it as Stolen Throne Beat Battles now .
do you have images or music.. like memorabilia, from those early years?..
unfortunately SC did away with Groups.. there were at least eight thousand people in the STBB group..
we did a couple of winner's and ( our ) faves compilations for a while..
you might dig

Nah not really. I'm old and pretty deep into my career. There was a point in making music where it felt like I was really pretty good at it but not quite good enough to make anyone really care. The work of trying to get anyone but myself to listen to it was more hassle than it was worth. Like "look at my awesome child" and then like maybe 3 people on the internet that I'd never see would be like "wow that's really good." Also, I would shop my music to local rappers a lot and I'd almost always be hit with a "oh wow, we need to collab" and then never hear back-- all while they were making whack tracks with other producers, or worse yet recording vocals with really bad sound levels making the whole track sound bad and more amateurish than it was.
no wonder she's an ex, haha..
Yeah man when Jonwayne showed up on the STMB he was named CaptainCookie if I remember right. His first few posts were basically him talking about how he was gonna start rapping and how he was way into poetry and shit. Then he posted some examples of his poetry and it really wasn't very good. Coupled with that, he was like making a big deal about being around black people and it really weirded me out. After a while though, you could see him progress musically with his rhymes and beats super quick. He eventually did put out a project with another Board member right before he got signed to Stonesthrow. I can't remember the other board members name though, I just remember he was a British cat and he was one of the guys that had a more professional sound that came after the beat battles started. The project was super good though.
