1. Mac Lethal: Why did we choose Mac Lethal as the #1 active Battle MC? Because
his style is unbelievable! Mac Lethal takes things from your apearence and twists them in such a creative way to diss you,
that it's incredible. He also has a very commanding voice with an aggressive stage presence that intimidates the opponents.
Hailing from Kansas City, Mac Lethal is the current 2002 Scribble Jam champion with a wicked & creative style, period!
2. Jakki Da MotaMouth: We could describe Jakki's battle style in one word: "disrespectful". He's so mean to
his opponents that you can't help to love it. While the other guy is rhyming he walks a off stage or walks right up to you
with a middle finger for your face. His disses are so creative and funny. I also recall him makin someone battle his hand
before. Coming from Columbus Ohio's own MHz crew, he has won many MC battle competitions in Ohio and is a force to be reckoned

year Before, and hes also apeared on 106 and park on BET! This cat is viscious as hell, watch out!
5. Ness Lee:
The emcee known as Ness Lee dominates every battle he is in. His disses never quit. His style is sarcastic, his flow and
wordplay of the top is flawless, and he doesn't show any signs of a weakness or "go to" word heard 20 times in a battle verse.
It's just a matter of time before this name hits number 1 on this list.
6. Okwerdz: This Young MC is creeping
up quickly on the MC Battle Scene. He has a very creative sarcastic "Smartass" style in battles. Rangin from witty appearance

14. Prime: Another
familiar face when it comes to battling, Prime has been EVERYWHERE! In street battles he has a very intmidating style and
delivery as he masacres his opponents with every line! On stage he has that same fierce delivery with an array of funny and
lethal punchlines. He is also known for taking a piss on an MC (whos name will remain anonymous) in a street battle so u never
kno what he'll do next!! from Chicago Prime has been everywhere from Scribble Jam, MTV's DFX Battle, Realease Battles, and
even the Blaze Battle which was aired on HBO!! Don't battle this guy in the streets unless you want to get pissed on!!!
Sage Francis: Here is one of the most unique battle MC's ever. He has a very strange and creative way of battling. He
doesn't use the obvious clothing and apearence disses, instead he rips funny lines that make you look like an idiot. For those
who diss on the obvious, he comes to battles wearing outrageous outfits so when you diss something obvious, he will call your
rhyme way before you say it. It's very difficult to battle him because he will be mocking you horribly and dancing around
making the crowd focus on him instead of the person rhyming. Very entertaining to watch!! This Rhode Island native has won
the 2000 Scribble Jam, Superbowl MC Battle, and various Poetry Slams!! Do not under-estimate this one!!
