Con concedes that Tech has the best possible flow unless Con can explain why or how to make a better flow than Tech has.
What Con is trying to do is just as cunning as what I am trying to do but the difference is I am on the correct side regarding burden of proof.If someone is the greatest at something, it is up to you to prove that a greater being could be there.
Tech N9ne matches fast, slow, quiet, loud etc etc ways of flowing and while volume is a mix between flow and delivery and isn't clearly either the reason Tech is so flawless at flow is if DELIVERY (quality of tone etc) comes in the way of FLOW, he won't go for it.
he point I'm making is no other rapper can ever be as good because his very style 'the way of mixing it up to perfectly elegantly fire his voice and lyrics across the beat in a seamless way that astonishes you and pleases the ear and stimulates the brain if focusing hard on the rap is unparalleled and his very style itself is that.
THE MEANING OF RAP FLOWFlow is the combination of two elements, that determine the overall sound of a rapper. The two elements being rhyme schemes and intonation techniques.This is flow. So, if you want to determine someones flow, you just pay attention to his rhyme schemes and intonation techniques.RHYME SCHEMESWe have a whole section on rhyme scheme in our Rapping Manual dedicated to learning and mastering different kinds of rhyme schemes and all there is to it, is choosing:what rhyme words will you usehow many of them will you havewhere will you put them.This is the essence of a rhyme scheme.INTONATION TECHNIQUESIntonation is the rise and fall of the voice. It’s the fluctuations of the voice. For example, you know that the sentence “I can’t wait to see you.” can have 5 different meanings, depending on the intonation used. Therefore, intonation derives from feeling and emotion.Intonation plays a huge part in coming up with a great rap flowIntonation plays a huge part in coming up with a great rap flowEach rapper has a different(sometimes similar) intonations and this is because each of them has a different attitude and demeanour. Each rapper is carrying himself in a different way. Therefore, the intonation of their bars is different.Think of intonation as the spirit of the rhyme scheme. A rhyme scheme without intonation is lifeless and boring, but once you give it an intonation pattern, you give it life.
>Reported Vote: Raltar // Mod action: Removed
>Points Awarded: 3 points to Con for arguments, 3 points to Pro for sources and conduct
>Reason for Decision: Con called Pro a "sneaky little bastard" and then forfeited several rounds, so conduct goes to Pro. Pro was also the only person who used a source, so he gets that category too. However, in spite of all that, Con still made the better argument, because he is correct. Unless Pro has the power to see the future or can conclusively prove that Tech has achieved a level of skill which is impossible for any other person to achieve, his claim cannot be proven.
>Reason for Mod Action: The justification for conduct points was sufficient. On sources, simply saying that Pro used a source does not demonstrate that source's relevance, which must be done. On arguments, the voter failed to survey and weigh the main arguments in the debate in order to render a verdict. The vote is insufficient. The voter could cast a sufficient vote by leaving the justification for conduct as-is, demonstrating the source's relevance to the debate, and surveying and weighing the main arguments in the debate.
Both Pro and Con agree that Tech N9ne is a very good rapper. The disagreement though, is in the second part of the resolution: That he is the best that ever will be. Con states that it is impossible to know since one cannot look into the future. Pro does not bother to respond to this. As such, I give arguments to Con.
Pro was the only one to include a source, so he gets points for that one.
Pro also wins conduct points. Con called Pro a "sneaky little b*****d".
Con called Pro a "sneaky little bastard" and then forfeited several rounds, so conduct goes to Pro.
Pro both linked to YouTude videos and quoted lyrics, which he utilized in an effective manner to support his arguments concerning the quality of the music. Con provided no sources.
Pro's thesis was highly complex and nigh-impossible to prove, based most of all on the "EVER will be" part of his claim. The only way to conclusively prove this would be to either have the ability to see the future or somehow provide conclusive evidence that the subject of the debate has a level of skill which is impossible for any other artist to ever achieve. This makes his claim highly questionable right off the bat.
Pro's argument centered around highlighting the music talents of the subject. He made these arguments well and supported them with ample citations.
However, Con countered by keeping his points simple, brief and to the point. Con accurately points out that the burden of proof in this situation requires either foreknowledge of the future or the ability to prove that other artists cannot achieve the same level of skill as the subject. Con points out that Pro cannot know "what the best possible flow is" during round 2, and although Pro goes on to praise the subject of the debate, he never actually proves that he can know beyond any shadow of doubt that the subject's level of skill is unobtainable by any other artist. As such, Con's argument is valid and confirms that Pro was unable to fully prove his original thesis.
