Soul should not quit... damn bruv.
He's top 5 in DF.
Soul... why are you hanging up the gloves?
Soul's fucking great yo, but this battle was a let-down. When I heard the match-up I thought Grist had bitten off more than he could chew - He was going up against a dude he couldn't "intellectually" clown (not that Grist is Christopher Hitchen or anything, but you catch my drift) and as such would rise to a level we hadn't previously seen from him. That - coupled with Soul Lording his obvious technical superiority over him - I thought would make for a great battle. But instead Grist bombed. Which, really, if you think about it, was probably the 2nd best thing that could have happened to him (1st would have been to win) because now he can blame tiredness and brush it off as a one off. But the reality is that he faced a far superior opponent and basically bottled it. No hate on Grist, just think he should have paid Soul a lot more respect than he did with this showing. No wonder dude's quitting, even the so-called 'intellects' can't keep up with him.
How many people show up at those festivals?
Sloppy battle, especially from Grist. What was with all the slips and freezes?
The festival is all over the city. There are hundreds of acts performing over 25 days
Last year there were nearly 2 million tickets sold
Ehhh, behind the scenes bullshit, and people I'm cool with being mistreated by inner circle dudes. Also its really kind of not what it used to be imho.
I got one more battle in November vs Unan which is 3 x 3 minutes, and a battle vs Bamalam that gets uploaded next month, so there's still new material on its way.
why not battle in one of the smaller shitter leagues like that Scottish one?
Because the crowds are not really suited to my type of material, and it always comes off awkward on footage. Also a big part of why I prefer battling on DF is the nights out afterwards are always jokes. In the Scottish scene its only like 2 or 3 dudes I really fuck with like that.
fair do's I guess. maybe try and blag a ticket to somewhere foreign?
It sucks because imo you are just entering your prime.
I watched your 2x2 with Unan vs Stowaway/Pamflit and the 24/7 battles again today.
Compared to some of your recent joints where you killed it.
It just blows to see someone come up and then right when you start becoming a problem... decide to retire.
I hope you change your mind.
Looking forward to the Bam/Unan battles.
good shit soul, crowd wasn't great but props either way
mark grist had some crazy material but his performance was off, as he knew
Soul vs Matter was the best Dont Flop battle of last year.
Soul is top 5 DF
Will definitely peep ASAP. Shame to hear that Grist sgat the bed cuz I'm a fan of his as well...
Soul is an absolute beast.
The 1st and 3rd were insane.
Lowest common denominator >>>>>
soul's pen game is top 3 in don't flop imo tbh iirc
Fuck! I like Grist & Soul and was looking forward to this and it turned out to be a chokefest.
yeah tbh Soul is one of the few 'bars over jokes' rappers who I don't get bored of because there aren't enough jokes in their bars
