Hitman Holla v. Tsunami Surf madness

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS ALL MY OPINION. IF YOU DONT LIKE IT, UMM,....SORRY? 

So, I’ve been dying to tackle this subject, and thanks to my lil boo Phoenix, I get a chance to vent to people who actually care (and if you’re reading this, I know you care, and if you don’t care, START CARING!) lol. But nah, seriously, this whole Hitman Holla (@hitmanholla) and Tsu Surf (@tsu_surf) episode is killing me. Like, seriously Surf, have a seat… no, correction, HAVE SEVERAL FUCKING SEATS! Like, right now! Let me just say, I’m a fan of Surf. He is even in my top five, but he is just doing too much for me and really turning me clean to the off. First things first, a couple tweets he tweeted didn't sit too well with me. One in particular, if I recall correctly, said something about what did Hollow (@hollowdadon) have to gain by battling Hitman Holla. Let me just say, it is of my belief that Hitman Holla and Hollow didn’t have any option but to battle to satisfy the fans. That’s what I have noticed since I have been watching battle rap. Sometimes, there are battles that have no choice but to take place. When speaking of number ones on top fives, Hitman and Hollow were at the top of many that I saw. The battle was inevitable because people needed to see it to make a definite choice. I know I’m definitely waiting to see the outcome because they were tied at my top.

 Now, back to the topic at hand- Surf and Hitman. Mannnn, I see absolutely, positively no reason for Hitman to battle Surf. Like, for what reason? I can remember about a month ago a twitter debate that Surf was having about him battling Bill Collector (@billcollectorMH), who is an up and coming battle rapper from Philly. He is my favorite rookie, but I digress. I chimed into the convo saying that I think it would be a good battle. To sum it up, I took a twitter beat down. Lol. I say that to say this: Do I think Surf should’ve battled Bill Collector that same week or on the next card? No. (Why Bell?!?!) Because, Bill Collector hasn’t put in enough work. He hasn’t done enough. He hasn’t battled enough people worth battling to get a battle with Surf (if that makes sense). With that being said, do I think Surf and Hitman Holla would be a good battle? Yes. Do I think Hitman should battle him on the next card? No. (aww mann! Why Bell?!) BECAUSE!! Surf hasn’t done enough. He lost to DNA, he lost to Ill, he did well against X-factor (personally, I think he won, but I see SEVERAL tweets saying that he got edged). Hitman hasn’t taken an L in URL in my opinion. He made himself THAT GUY for the time being. He did have a much-debated battle with Big-T (@BIGTQMB), whom I adoreeee! Aside from that, Hitman has proven himself. He has done what he needs to do. He shouldn’t battle anyone who isn’t on his level. Is Surf nice? Yes, but he isn’t on Hitman’s level. I can recall when it was announced that Math took the battle with Calico (whom I loveee). Math shouldn’t have done that. (Bell, you trippin. Why??) Because Cali hadn’t done enough!! Giii lee! He simply hadn’t put in enough work to get that battle. It was a humble ass move for Math to take it, and I respect him for that, but he went and got his ass kill, ki, ki, killed so I heard (which I also predicted.) But again, I digress.

Surf is a good guy and all that, but i really think that something has gotten into him. Like, he is turning into the battle rap bully so to speak. He has this thing where he feels like he can talk shit to anyone he wants and they will battle him (at least this is the impression that I get. I could be wrong, but oh the fuck well). When he talks that shit, his small cult (Surf Club is what they call it. I admit, I am #DTS. Lol) rallies with him and tortures whomever he targets. That’s part of the sport though, but he is just going too the fuck far. I understand that he is hungry and all that, but he is going about it the wrong way. He has also been trashing Hitman’s music in efforts to prove a point I guess. Well, I have Hitman’s mix tape, and I love it. I also heard Surf’s mix tape. I won’t lie, it’s nice, and I loveeee his videos (except for those hoochie mamas- if he reads this, he’ll know what I’m talking about. Lol). I didn’t really care for the “Unique” video (Hitman’s video), but that’s beside the point. The point is that Surf is taking stuff too far, and Hitman is being foolish by even feeding into it. What he should’ve done was just ignored him. Had I been in Hitman’s position, I would’ve just let him talk his little shit, because like I said earlier, Hitman has proven enough. The only battles he should be taking are those big fellas. I can see Smack (@SMACKWHITE) being forced to bring out the big guns for him (i.e. Lux and Mook (who I think is not all that). He shouldn’t have let Surf get him to the point where he felt like he needed to prove something. In fans’ eyes, he made Surf look relevant. It shouldn’t have been an option for them to battle if you ask me, at least not this soon. It got really ridiculous when he took part in that childish trending topic mess with Surf, which was hilarious (SN: #ShortsUnderJeans < #HandsOnHips)!! The more he entertained him, the more he made it seem like he has to battle him. Surf accomplished his mission. He put a lot of hype around it in a short period of time. Hitman took the bait, so if they do in fact end up battling on the next card, I won’t be surprised. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if it happened before the next big card. I guess we will just have to see though. (Who do you think will win Bell?!) ehh, well, see, umm, I like them both, but umm, yea… #BallGame > #SurfClub. Lol. But nah, it will be a good battle. Very good. I just prefer Hitman’s style over Surf's. Oh, and don’t come with that biased BS, because I’m not from Jersey or STL. I’m millions of miles from both, so im just calling it how I see it.

  1. Answer this how much work did Hitman put in before he battled Arsonal? He had 2 debatable battles before ars in Cortez(best battle of last year)/Big T(T got Hollow before hitman did) now anyone who is saying otherwise is lying. Surf has 2 debatable battles DNA/Ill in the case of DNA after DNA's first round DNA was garbage and the crowd was biased, Ill surf could go either way, neither got killed. Now Ars had no reason to battle Hitman after 2 URL battles right? Hitman hadn't put in that much work either but Arsonal did him that favor granted he got killed but he is where he is because Ars took that battle. Hitman and Surf have the same amount of battles so why isn't surf ready for hitman? All their battles have tremendous replay value. It makes sense to me, I dont know any non-biased rap battle fan who wouldn't like to see it, so why not? All things said about Surf in this article could be said about Hitman before he battled Arsonal.

  2. umm, if recall correctly, i think i did say that it would be a good battle... the topic is not Hitman and Ars. the topic is Hitman and Surf. had this blog been around when Hitman and Ars was about to battle, i probably wouldve said the same thing. like i said, its MY OPINION. youre entitled to yours as well. it all good. :)

  3. also, its not about the number of battles. its about who you battle. o-red has several battles. does that mean Hitman has to battle him?

  4. I'm saying it's abit hypocritical of Hitman to say he's not gonna take a battler because "oh it does nothing for me" When at the time before he battled Ars that battle did nothing for Ars. Ars was alreadys a million view nigga at that time, he made Hitman get a million views, before that Hitman was just a 400,000 view nigga just like surf. At some point everyone get's their big battle that takes them to alot of views. That's my whole point you can have your opinion I'm just give mine as well.

  5. and to answer your second question no because O-Red has had battles where he clearly lost, only one battle he clearly won. Most of Surfs battles are debatable along with Hitman. How all a sudden Hitman become hollywood after one clear victory?(Arsonal)

  6. All I know is If they do this one-off in Newark i'm THERE. They need to stop playing

    Hitman think he somebody just cuz Nelly bet 50K on him. now he talkin bout he wont do it unless Surf get someone to bet 50K on him.

    Nigga please. stop being pussy

  7. aww zip it phoenix! he aint pussy. he is just feeling that pressure that surf is putting on him. i wish he would just play it cool until surf puts him in that same position he put hollow in (which im sure surf will do).

  8. Everyone should get their shot at a big name. If surf wasnt away he prolly would be the biggest name in the battle shit. Right now they the 2 most talked about niggas in url so they should battle each other and its well deserved on both ends. Besides surf got over 200,000 in a week on his last battle that by it self should give him the pick of the litter

  9. This article is a prime example as to why females cannot fully grasp the dynamics of street battle rap. The feminine perspective, which isn't inherently bad, thwarts your understanding of what makes one battler "nicer" than the other.

    Lyrically, you couldn't even argue, with examples, that Hitman is superior to Surf. Most of your opinions seem to be based on feelings, as opposed to the actual skill of the battlers.

    Women, white people/suburbanites lack the insight and proper perspective to accurately evaluate this street culture.

  10. wow! sexist much? boy sit down somewhere. not one time did i say that hitman was "nicer" than anyone. you just missed the whole damn point of the article. i have no bones with Surf when it comes to his lyrical capabilities. once again, that was not the point of the article. re-read the article, the come back and we try again and maybe we can debate when you make a sensible point :)
