    was wack. cervin technically won it, even though bo-rat served him in the finals and iconoclast SERVED him in the first round (but through a wild card system cervin got back in). THere were only like 7 people tops battling it was wack. Bo-rat caught hate cause he was a whiteboy...there was all sorts of reverse racism bullshit going on, blah blah. I'll post the footage, bo-rat has some tight shit but I know he could have comep better. Iconoclast did his thing and so did pizzle. I think the lower standards of the other battlers lowered bo-rat et al's performance. too bad franco wasn't there, he prob. would have murdered everyone like he did last year. instead he opened for aceylone and ab rude in humboldt

    That sucks about the battle. I guess it's for the better that I didn't go.

    Wait a second, Franco opened up for Aceylone and Abstract Rude? That's pretty ill. I didn't know that Franco had recorded songs and shit...

    you didn't miss out on shit...

    i'm actually glad no one dope came, cuz they would have had a horrible impression of the SB hip hop scene. granted, it's not THAT poppin', but last night was not a good representation.

    iconoclast served the fuck outta cervin. hes a very nice mc, but his problem is that once he gets a little shook, he cant regain his composure. he fell off numerous times that night.

    the final battle was wack. i mean, to me it was like this: borat did not lose to cervin, but he definitely didnt win. if you dont serve the other person, you cant complain because judges are human.

    i dont think cervin or borat came very tight, but what it came down to was this. cervin was more on beat, and he never fell off once. however, his punchlines are horrible, and he has no wordplay whatsoever.

    borat needs to work on his flow. he has the lines, the wordplay and all that, but is offbeat most of the time. im not even trying to hate. borat is definitely an elite battler in california. cervin on the other hand, would never do well at a real battle. his style is perfect for 106 and park. weak fillers, substituted with a "you look like" punchline every once in a while.

    in the end, it could have gone either way in my opinion based on those reasons.

    yeah I feel you on that. in the first two rounds of the final battle, I think bo-rat served him, I have to watch the footage again. The last round where you "flow until you fall off" was bogus and bo-rat was actually freestyling, whereas cervin was half spitting writtens and kicking mediocre flow. Cervin is usually on beat, but that's because he always does the same flow/cadence, never switches it up. Hopefully he'll go to street rock and enter and see what a real battles all about. Last night at the party I threw his boys kept cutting bo-rat and intuition off when they were trying to battle and then he said "who wants to battle the champion..." I just laughed. I'll have the footage up on soulseek soon. peace and thanks for coming and judging marshall, that chick was really wack, BTW, but we already established that...

    marshall... i feel you on the flow aspect of my "game" (if you can even call it that... haha)

    lately i've been trying to switch up the monotony of rhymes that are structured AA BB... but in doing so i think my flow falls of at times.

    oh well, that's what practice is for, right?

    Word. I actually appreciated that. Not like I have anything to do with you guys' conversation or anything, but I did think that was cool of Rat to not get all defensive.
    This is why I want to work with that man on a track....*cough
