    u perpetrated the past, & I’m known to snub a nerd
    ur amateur punches could turn kindergarten cop into a Governor
    I slaughter herbs, u were dope? thats an unknown sentiment
    cuz Exodus proves he doesn’t bring much to the old testament
    I’m zoning in, but leaving his girl covered when exposing him
    cuz cannibals turn vegetarians when she’s showing skin
    I’ve beaten so many wack heads & nothings changing dude

    if you're really the king's heir then i'm gonna have to split ends

    hmm. both of you had nice lines, and some bad lines. my major gripe with nika's verse was the verse structure itself, cuz the way I read it, some lines felt like a syllable too short or too long, which kinda threw my flow off. and some of the rhymes were questionable, like rhyming governor with snub-a-nerd.. I mean, I see what you tryna do, but they don't rhyme well together. exo's verse, started well and kinda fell off on content. I mean, lines like fed ex a bitch was pretty creative man. after that tho, it kinda became simple and old.. digits be the middle ones? c'mon, that's like 99. after reading it twice though, I'm leaning towards nika. more consistent / fresher, imo.

    When I started reading Exodus's verse, I thought the battle was over. Then I realized that the only thing he had on Nik was the opening and closing.

    uuhhhh.......................... yea, Ex kilt him

    Nika came wit all this huge vocabulary and said nothin to really embarass his opponent.. there was one line i liked in his verse - the cannibals line... other than that, he was witty but didnt use the wit correctly... shit was SOFT as fuck... it's like, who the fuck would say shit like that in a battle?? i understand this is text, but come on

    Ex was pretty consistent, better style, better flow (and nah im not votin on flow really at all cuz it's text, but it at least makes it easier an smoother to read).. his disses were more direct an actually hit a little.. not a bad verse

    JUDGE VOTE

    aight battle here, saw some fresh stuff from you guys so I'm droppin' a vote on how I saw this match turn out.

    ill nik-A:

    seen you around dude and peeped you over the years. i really haven't seen what you bring lately or if you're even doin' much text but I know you can bring some decent heat so i expected a few good lines. here's my thoughts on your verse:

    I’m easily cruising, abusing for wins, to have u losing ya grin
    take ya ego trip elsewhere before ya realize ur confidence is a hallucinogen
    don’t need to make u look bad or say u havent elevated to last
    cuz bitch u do the job for me like I delegated the task

    ^^^ego trip/hallucinogen line was a decent opener, had some multis in there, not a bad punch.
    the do the job/delegated the task was a pretty good follower to the opener line as well. not super creative but hit well enough. good opening four lines.

    I honestly thought the next four lines which included the governor punch and the Exodus name play were lacking. the kindergarden line didn't do it for me and that name play wasn't fresh at all. ehhhh lines at the most.

    I’m zoning in, but leaving his girl covered when exposing him
    cuz cannibals turn vegetarians when she’s showing skin

    ^^^aight line here. i like the concept, e'ryone thinks it was the fresh line of your verse...good line, not the line of the battle to me though, still decent

    I’ve beaten so many wack heads & nothings changing dude
    this is De JA Vu! the type Denzel couldn’t bring a surprise ending to
    this punk aint shit, if III is in roman numerals u cant fuck with nik
    theres 50 different reasons Exodus should come with an L in front of it

    ^^^now these lines brought back some of the consistency you started with.
    I thought the Denzel line was aiight, and the roman numeral flip was a stronger name play than the Exodus one though the 50 different reasons was worded badly. good four lines though, solid.

    the closer just sucked to me, i can see the concept in it, badly worded, bleh.

    Overall i thought you had a solid verse with some good lines in there. good opening battle to start with.


    ExodusIII:

    not real familiar with you so I wasn't sure what you'd bring. I can vaguely remember seeing you around so I was hopin' you'd bring some heat to nik-A and make it a match. here's my thoughts:

    peeps won't vote they only came here to read these quotes
    nik's on top? shit...that only proves that feces floats
    it's all a lie...plumber said the tourney would be raw this time
    ...then he fed Ex a bitch like mail order brides

    ^^^the opener was an ok line, i like the way you started out here.
    then you came with the fed Ex line and i was like, WORD. I think this was the line of the battle. very solid opening four lines.

    next you dropped this:

    you'll be eatin more than ya words...bitch, see you in hell
    ...nick'll plate it when i'm feedin him shells
    when they said u was bordeline wack...they're complimenting bro
    cause you graduated to wack when you crossed from mexico

    ^^^i like the nick'll plate line here too, continuing with a solid verse.
    then the borderline wack/mexico line came and wasn't that great. jeah i see the personal in it, but no.

    and when it comes to chicks..nik's known as the little one
    the only digits bitches be giving him is their middle ones
    since b.i.g's death...nik thought he was channeling his text
    if you're really the king's heir then i'm gonna have to split ends

    ^^^the digits line was below average to me so the trend continued downward...then you brought the heir/split ends line and picked it up a bit, rhyming was off to me though. this couplet was mixed but below average.

    and then you closed with this:

    this dude's queer...which makes it eay to diss him
    cos i can talk about bitches without bringin ya friends n family in it
    this kid's a wreck...pussy wouldn't be considered a threat
    ...if he posts between shootings at virginia tech

    ^^^the bitch line was ok, nothing creative here since you opened up. the closer was about the same in regards to impact as nik-A's line so that nullified both for me. decent couplet of lines.

    Overall you definitely had the line of the battle. I think the Fed Ex line should be featured. Unfortunately, I felt like you went down hill from those opening lines. I honestly think if you woulda brought one more line on par with the Fed Ex line, you would have taken this battle, solid verse, but inconsistent.


    I have to give this match to ill nik-A for consistency. He didn't have mad dope stand out lines but he brought enough to take this match. ExodusIII dropped the best line in my opinion but didn't bring enough fire to take it down.
    Close match up but Nik-A barely edges it out.

    VOTE = ill nik-A

    Ill Nik-A

    u perpetrated the past, & I’m known to snub a nerd
    ur amateur punches could turn kindergarten cop into a Governor
    5.5/10 Hmmmmmmm......not really a hard hitter

    I slaughter herbs, u were dope? thats an unknown sentiment
    cuz Exodus proves he doesn’t bring much to the old testament
    6/10 Culda did something better with this nameplay

    I’m zoning in, but leaving his girl covered when exposing him
    cuz cannibals turn vegetarians when she’s showing skin
    9/10 LMAO AND da saver.....nice punch brought the battle verse back up

    i’ve beaten so many wack heads & nothings changing dude
    this is De JA Vu! the type Denzel couldn’t bring a surprise ending to
    7.5/10 It was an ok swing

    I got evil intentions, callin this ya comeback to only be leavin in seconds
    no shot at stayin around like ur trial membership ended with a lethal injection
    7/10 The punch was alright, but not a good closer

    Overall:5.5/10 Ill Nik-A didn't have a good opener and his verse was going downstream until the cannibal line popped up, but it went right back down. Doesn't seem like he was ready for this battle.

    ExodusIII

    peeps won't vote they only came here to read these quotes
    nik's on top? shit...that only proves that feces floats
    8/10 Very nice opener I liked this line alot

    it's all a lie...plumber said the tourney would be raw this time
    ...then he fed Ex a bitch like mail order brides
    9/10 Damn it looks like somebodies gonna be sick after this battle

    you'll be eatin more than ya words...bitch, see you in hell
    ...nick'll plate it when i'm feedin him shells
    8/10 Wew hot shit I loved the nameplay in this line

    when they said u was bordeline wack...they're complimenting bro
    cause you graduated to wack when you crossed from mexico
    8/10 The opponent is getting melted right now

    and when it comes to chicks..nik's known as the little one
    the only digits bitches be giving him is their middle ones
    7.5/10 Lol personally beating opponents ass

    since b.i.g's death...nik thought he was channeling his text
    if you're really the king's heir then i'm gonna have to split ends
    8.5/10 Liked the way the wordplay flowed through in this line

    this kid's a wreck...pussy wouldn't be considered a threat
    ...if he posts between shootings at virginia tech
    7.5/10 The line was alright, but not a strong finish

    Overall:9/10 ExodusIII showed that he had this shit in the bag from the beginning by brutaly beating his opponent's verse into an watery alphabet soup. He kept the consistency on strongly and showed his opponent no mercy, he didn't have a chance in this battle. ExodusIII's flow was on point, he hit personaly, multiplied punches to the groin, and smashed Ill Nik-A no contest.

    vote=ExodusIII

    Overall Nik came with some tight shyt, big word flow ya know. Only line I liked though was the cannibal line. Exodus came with not one but two good punches, that I think gave him the win. good battle though, but Nik I was going for you mayne. It seem like you let me down. VOTE=Exodus

    ill nik-a

    don’t need to make u look bad or say u havent elevated to last
    cuz bitch u do the job for me like I delegated the task
    - cool line.

    I’m zoning in, but leaving his girl covered when exposing him
    cuz cannibals turn vegetarians when she’s showing skin
    - lol, best line of your verse.

    all in all ill nik-A was highly inconsistent. he should've had his entire verse surrounding upon like like the best one in his verse. ...punches like that are what hit hard... most of what he had was just some lines that either didn't really make much sense, or just didn't hit hard enough. his words weren't big as people are saying, he just had a nice vocabularly. but he didn't really word everything properly, to make it an ill punch. that's what i believe he's lacking in this....

    it's all a lie...plumber said the tourney would be raw this time
    ...then he fed Ex a bitch like mail order brides
    - lol nice.

    when they said u was bordeline wack...they're complimenting bro
    cause you graduated to wack when you crossed from mexico
    - decent....

    since b.i.g's death...nik thought he was channeling his text
    if you're really the king's heir then i'm gonna have to split ends
    - lol, line of the battle.

    all in all ExodusIII had a cool verse. i like that short and straight to the point punch style. he properly used it, and came alright. some of his lines just dragged on, and some didn't make any sense like the virginia tech line.... but where it mattered most, and having a good punchline or two, that's where exodus shined because he had better lines than nik-A.... at some points he also had me in the deep end, but for the most part exodus came more consistent....

    so for that matter, i have to give this to exodusiii
