DJDureagon Won hands down. This beat is awesome - I love it.
I don't believe I need to go into detail why- Teq wins. Hands down.
I loved this - Shit is a tie.
Rhythm: Luke James had much better flow - and he's right when he says that Sonic crams in as many words as he can - Sonic sounds cramped and it ruins his punches a bit.
Production: I believe Sonic tried very hard to have good production, but a lot of his ad-libs and overlaps subtracted from his work rather than adding to it. Sonic was also too loud over the beat. Luke James didn't do anything unique, which is a shame, but he kept it simple and had decent production.
Lyrics: Sonic's lyrics were tight - Had some personal hits, had punches, had flips - he lacked clever insults and punches though. The base of his insults were generic and overused in the rap genre. He became far too cocky in his second verse and failed to keep his composure as a writer it seems. Ironically he mentions going on the defensive.
Luke James also had great lyrics - Personal hits, flips, prediction/accusation insults, etc. - Luke James did something I am a big fan of in his lyrics. He, first off, got to his opponents head, Sonic seemed mad during his second verse as he retreats to a very defensive position. Furthermore, Luke James makes accusations about Sonic, "whose passion is getting status likes." "trying to be the poster kid." ... These little jabs at Sonic are good to start but Sonic makes them valid when he tries to protect himself from them by flipping the script. Even though I am a big fan of flips Sonic fails to do them successfully and instead makes it seem like Luke james is hitting close to home.
In my honest opinion this battle was actually very close. I believe Sonic played a large roll in his own downfall. The problem wasn't so much that Luke James out played Sonic and was more clever and yada yada yada... The issue for sonic is that his flips weren't flips but defensive acts of attempted rebuttal and his attempt at classy production lowered the quality of his verses. ... Don't get me wrong Sonic was fun to listen to and had some great material, but Luke James gets my vote.
Luke kept his composure and his flow was unmatched.
Vote: Luke James
Choked you at your party and called it a gag gift. Beautiful...
Sky takes this one home in my opinion, Jakobes punches were too generic.
Awesome battle though. Props to both.
Wolfies kills this track - but Sonic murders it.
Both have very unique flows and good punches.
However, Sonic's lyrics straight up outsmarted those crafted by wolfie. In the end I go with Sonic for a vote.
I think we both killed it. Awesome job dude, loved spitting against you. A true pleasure.
Pachillis has my vote. His punches were better and so was his flow.
Maverick took stuff too personally.
However they both had some sick lines. Great job guys.
PiGPEN - Humorous punches seemed to get on the nerves of Vin, and his flow was respectable. Definitely the lyricist of the battle.
Vinstigator - Had good flow and a couple of quick flips of lyrics which worked well. However, he lacked enough of his own insults instead of defending and flipping Pig's.
Richard had a better flow, and produced a better sound.
But Emrox had lyrics that topped Richard's, especially the intense mockery in the the first verse.
Richard's lyrics were mostly generic, and predictable with a few clever bars.
My vote goes to Emrox.
