Upstairs Talk: A Universal Battle Rap Language (Archived)

Thanks for the love. I wanted to make a lateral move and consider some ideas I had during the break between bar variation sections.
The idea: What would a Universal Battle Rap Language Look Like?
Ever wonder what it would look like to battle another person who didn’t speak your language? I thought about it and tried to figure out a way to do it. And this mental exercise does serve a deeper purpose.
Battle rap is about bond building. And so, how might I build a bond with someone if I don’t speak their language? If I could battle them to learn something about their lives, their culture, how would I do it?
This is a deep question. Let’s explore it.
