Explain Yo Screen Name

Explain Yo Screen Name

Post by The Gonz » Thu Dec 16, 2010 10:30 am

After reading the "Fuck your 3 letter name" thread in Fight Club, I got to wondering how/why/where yall got your screen names from and what the fuck some of them mean. Explain.

Ruckus is my nickname. My last name is very similar in spelling and I have been called it throughout most of my adult life, starting in high school and in the military due to some of my behaviors and my genuinely sarcastic demeanor. Always trying to stir shit up and see how people react... causin a Ruckus.

Kuhlerblynd was my nickname from battling in high school and shit. Stuck with me forever. Lots of people still call me that.

Murk McNasty is actually a gamer name I made up, from back in the original Halo days. Dont sure why I'd thought to use it here, but I did. I guess cuz I view battling as more of a game now, when before I was much more serious about it.

Complexity.

Me and ekoms aka evolution were talking on a chat client and he said that I needed a new name.

I thought of myself as complicated which was a word that I used often.

So I said, why not complexity.

He said, is that even a word?

Kau is my last name. The Lion comes from the quote "I'd rather live one day as a lion than a thousand years as a lamb." Specifically inspired by the group One Day as a Lion.

I didn't pick Jack Da Rippa. I battled a lot when I first came and kind of juss stuck wit it cos anytime I really felt like changing it I had a battle goin' on and don't believe in that cos they were usually a lot of plays wit my name at first. Otherwise, I don't really care what name I type under so it's not that big ah deal. I will change it sooner or later tho so what I'm use to goin' by.

My name is Cole....add a bit and it's the name of my avy.

I usually go by Coleon though. It was my name in spanish class (usually meaning colon but I pronounce it differently) and when I started listening to Big L I thought he was saying it. He really said Corleone but I liked it so I used it on my first rap forum and so I usually use it now.

When I get decent at audio I'll probably change it and leave my internet past in the rear view though lol.

Kau's name is pretty sick not gonna lie.

About 8-9 years ago I started freestyling pretty much daily, someone said I had an ill cadence, I responded by saying it was intrinsic to my nature, and thus was born Intrinsic Cadence. No connection to my given name (which is Javad by the way). Intrinsic Cadence disappeared for a bit when me and a friend formed a crew called Cool-Calm-Collected, but returned again a couple years thereafter. It's a long name to go by I know, but it sums up the goal of what and why I write and flow.

Well, It Started Off At 15 As South Side Mexican. Similar To South Park Mexican, A Houston Rapper. He Basically Showed Me Mexicans Can Get Into The Game Pretty Good and Build A Rep, So I Wanted To Sorda Follow That Path And I Made That My Name As A Nod To him. Rather Than Just Rep South Park, I Wanted Ta Rep Tha South Side As A Whole. After Going By This For 5 Years, I Got Tired With Gettin The Constant Comparison's To Mexican Gangs And Being Told I'm Just Trying To Ride Off his Success, I Opted To Change My Name Ta Double S, Which Jus Stands For South Side. Then I Became Aware That There's A Double S In England Or London, who Has A Well Built Rep. I Didn't Want The Same Situation Popping up, So I Decided To Come Up With a Creative Way To Spell It. Hence, 2xS. Seeing How x Represents Multiplication, It Says 2 x(times) S. Which Again Breaks Down Into Double S LOL. I also Think It Would Make A Pretty Creative NecklacePendant For Sometime Down the Road

Started off as WildBill because it was my nickname all through High School. I was a big partier and my first names William, so Wild Bill just stuck.

Alpha Bill/Omega Bill - Just adding Alpha or Omega to my name because I liked the way it sounded.
