The last battle I spelt out what I like and don’t in these, I won’t go over it again:
“I should have killed before, but I thought only a beating was in order.
This time I'll jack your as proper and leave you naked at the border.”
Love this, context is good -spelling bad, but the joke and the rhyme gel.
The middle kind fizzled a bit, there were a couple of bits that were okay, but I vote on combos :)
“How can your audience like your work when they fall asleep first.
In a way you're like me, cause your gift is a curse.
Being clever don't matter if you can't appeal with a verse.
But I learned my lesson and if you don't your fate will be worse.”
Love the opening of this, it was cutting - but the remainder was just adequate. Need that first bit at the end.
Telling my I'm clever, and then saying 'whatever, if you can't appeal with a verse',
Is like loving a nation's weather and saying 'fuck your windspeed', bitch you think it hurts?
So, this is the issue I have with some of RMs recent raps. It seems like the effort was on trying to find something in the middle of the sentence to rhyme with clever rather than having the insult make sense. The simile is bad.
First/cursed/hearse again feels forced and just bottom shelf insults. Basically rapping that your great and he’s going to die.
“Cause you're doomed to forever get better at repetitive delicate terrible bars I rip to shreds;
It's imperative that your peril is inevitable, see a therapist you 'special fool'.”
Just feels all over the place.
First stanza I loved the goku reference. And the dime willing to invest was just great.
The remainder there was nothing stand out, but only the “pun gent” line fizzled imo. The rest was just just okay.
Saying you're competitive, like which dude here's the better bitch?
Fuck off get stung in nettles, Wrick, I'm that straight from the bottom, make my tea on stove; top-ranked debater, I'm gettin' rich,
This just didn’t sting or gel.
“Tellin' your structure's clever, whatever my flow's wetter, stitch your open wounds over broken bones, heart ceases, pass-out seizure as you get an epileptic fit,”
And again, this just seems to be saying he’s injured, it doesn’t seem contextually insulting.
“Writhe in pain as you strain your brain to cope with no anaesthetic, if you thought I'd hesitate at your pathetic parade of 'gave' instead of 'given' bullshit grammar-for-rhyme trades you're as inutile but self-adoring as a 2019 ISIS terrorist.”
Ao the parade / gave / given / trade was a neat rhyme - but let down by the poor overall insult.
First stanza forgettable.
Second stanza - first line is funny and topical, but the rest is just okay.
Third stanza was hilarious commentary on RM explaining.
Fourth was okay, nothing special.
Fifth - boom, that was just amazing. In my opinion this was the best part of the battle, continuous repeated rhymes for added impact and flair.
Final stanza kinda let it down though.
RM: “Shit, why don't you go 'n' sit in hope the cow got a flu, so you have something to beef with that doesn't let madman leave you six feet underground, fool!”
I like the play on words here, but for the rest, there’s little topical or relevant to his rap. There’s a few references and turn backs (the less is more), but it just seems more of the same.
In the final round, the insults were a bit better : but the rhymes were patchy. With a few more fizzles (combatant, savageness): there weren’t any real cutting or hard insults again though.
Because of this: I felt pro was substantially better in this battle. The Insults were better, and much funnier. The rhymes were okay, with a few knock out rhymes mentioned above.
In terms of points - 7 points would be a knock out, 1 would be a marginal win. I would say this is in the middle, so will go with 3 points.
This was a tough one to judge, each person made grammar mistakes and what not. I feel like pro Got his best shot in round 3, but pro should have left the explanation in the comments of the accuracy of the reference in round 2. Con provided beats and changed rhythm in every round where pro stayed steady and stable with his. Con had more insults per stanza, however i feel pro's were more applicable to con.
Based on whos insults were more relevant id vote pro
Based on rhythm and Weight of insults id vote con.
