    Causin multiple massacres once i enter with my knife.
    n' after i chop you up.
    ... you'll see anotha 'mass-occur'.. in rememberance of ya life.
    This NY kids a homo. there's always a dick above this dork.
    VH1 nailed it. in reality only guys would say that they Love New York.
    You'll never headline, n' im sure u regret this mister.
    If u wanna see a head line.
    ... then this must be where i tell you about the 1st time i met ya sister.
    When my fist connects, u should start peepin out some hearses.
    Cuz ya face'll have a Reflection so bad it rivals when u think about ya verses.
    Remember this son, you lost once you entered the race.
    See, i'm second to none.. while you're just second to whoever you face.
    Independence is a word you can commonly relate to guys.
    But if it means to live on your own.. Spitz'll have that down til the day he dies.
    You're missin creativity, punches, n' honestly just lackin soul.
    But as far as descendin the ranks. my blunts ain't got shittttt on how fast you roll.

    Not sure who you are WiiKin, and I'll have a IP check done, but to my knowledge NYC SPITZ is out of town and was sending my parts of his verse but didn't finish, because he asked me to post for him.

    I have no knowledge of anything you're talking about, and unless you can provide proof I can't allow that verse.

    I'll talk to NYC myself to confirm if any of this is true.

    Hensley, opener was pretty good, classic wordplay. The "Love New York" line was cool, kinda clever, but not a hard diss. The "1st time I met ya sister" line was ok, Didn't care for the next line, I thought the "second to whoever you face" was a clever line but I"m still waiting for a hard diss, a big blow. I don't know if I missed somethingm but I didn't think the "live on your own" line was at all effective, but your closer was cool. You verse was very consistent but I didn't feel like anything was hard hitting, nothing made me say wow.

    NYC Spitz, opener was solid as fuck, wordplay and personal. THe next bar was aight, good idea with the "Hen-Asea" but I didn't think you executed it well. I thought the "LoanSum" line was stretching it a little, nice wordplay no doubt, but its just not really much of a diss. I liked the "Tit Fuccing Your Mom" line, real clever. Really didn't get the MTV line and don't understand why you randomly capitolize words, it doesn't add affect just confusion. The "Pays your Cell" line was probably the dopest line of the battle. Your closer was solid as well.

    Overall, best battle I've read so far. Both verses were very consistent and the battle was very close. First time I read it I said Hensley, second time I said Spitz. Neither of you are winning anybody over with flow or rhyme scheme so it came down to punches. I really had to break it down. Hen had 5 solid disses, I gave Spitz 4 whole disses and 2 halfs on the "Depressed @ Banks" "Hen-Asea" lines. But even without those lines I gave it to Spitz because of the "Pays your Cell" line. Thats the only line that made my eyebrow move in the whole battle, close battle fellas, but that line was the difference.

    Nycspitz Had Played Shit.. Some Of His Concepts And How He Flipped Them Were Freshed, But Shit Like \'\'hen-a-sea\'\' Is Just Garbage To Me.. How You Flipped It As I Said Was Kinda Fresh, But The Line In Itself Is Just Not The Spirit.. You Had An Alright Verse Though.. Hensley Came Decent Himself, But He Had A Better Verse. His Lines And Concepts Were Just More Hard Hitting, And I Felt His Style Was Much Fresher In This Battle. Nice Approach By Both For A First Round Contest, But Hensley Took This One

    Causin multiple massacres once i enter with my knife.
    n' after i chop you up.
    ... you'll see anotha 'mass-occur'.. in rememberance of ya life.
    lol, cool nameplay, good way to open
    This NY kids a homo. there's always a dick above this dork.
    VH1 nailed it. in reality only guys would say that they Love New York.
    Lines like this, while alright cuz VH1 said that, this line loses a bit of effect cuz its not true. New York actually has one of the highest girl to guy ratios in the country.
    You'll never headline, n' im sure u regret this mister.
    If u wanna see a head line.
    ... then this must be where i tell you about the 1st time i met ya sister.
    hahahaha, damn, i can't believe such a simple idea like this has never been done as far i know. Loved this line.
    When my fist connects, u should start peepin out some hearses.
    Cuz ya face'll have a Reflection so bad it rivals when u think about ya verses.
    ehh, this felt too statementish n' just kinda bland
    Remember this son, you lost once you entered the race.
    See, i'm second to none.. while you're just second to whoever you face.
    this was filler... wayy too basic
    Independence is a word you can commonly relate to guys.
    But if it means to live on your own.. Spitz'll have that down til the day he dies.
    same as above, kinda bland filler
    You're missin creativity, punches, n' honestly just lackin soul.
    But as far as descendin the ranks. my blunts ain't got shittttt on how fast you roll.
    ehh, ain't seen it like this, but still a played idea.. not a great way to close

    vs.

    It's this Vet's End! Knife him, He's Bleeding I Sickle Heads In
    No Story! Trust, You'll be seeing More than a Little Red, Hen
    nice try, but this is pretty played on him
    ..No meds sent, Dump the Body in water, I've Pictured it All
    So When I say I need "Hen-Asea" there's No Liquor Involved
    lol, kinda corny tho. I can guess similar concepts have been done on him before n' wording wasn't that great, but a funny idea
    Except if Friends poured, but they left, Stressed, Ashamed
    Hen's Crying On his LoanSum Like Being Depressed @ Banks
    ehh, wasn't feelin' this wordplay here, just came off as corny
    Suggest you take out the ploy/tricks, or be ducking a bomb
    Last time I Fell for a Booby Trap was Tit Fuccing Your Mom
    nahh, seen this concept before, its played
    Got stuck w/ the condom, Common I'm Bruising in Fights &
    He Ends Up Scarred so much it Got MTV Producers Excited
    I never seen the show, but its obvious what u were goin' for. Seems like u coulda done more with this, though not bad
    Brace Yaself, You win? RM wont Bet on it, I'm Raising Hell
    ..Only person to "Put Money on Your Text" Pays your Cell
    i liked the concept of this cuz it was creative, but it wasn't worded well at all
    & well, Nothing New it's like Old Times, I'm Filled w/ Laughter
    What Did I Bring to the table? John's Head on a Silver Platter!
    oh man, u needed to close better than a table/head on platter line

    Well, Hensley had 2 really dope lines with his opener and headline thing. Loves new york was okay, but the rest was pretty much filler. Really left the door open for NYC SPITZ to take this one, but he didn't take advantage. Some of his shit was really played and the lines that weren't, for the most part weren't worded well. In terms of consistency, verse might have been more consistent, but there wasn't enough that stood out. If the money on text, hen a sea, and mtv lines had been executed better, I could see this as almost an upset given the amount of filler John dropped, but as it stands, I think John got this.

    Vote - John Hensley

    now to NYC

    Erm, NYC pmed me his verse on rw a few days ago. I just didn't post it cuz I thought he was pming it to me here but I have no pms.

    ..No meds sent, Dump the Body in water, I've Pictured it All
    So When I say I need "Hen-Asea" there's No Liquor Involved - coulda been worded better, nice concept but fell short
    Except if Friends poured, but they left, Stressed, Ashamed
    Hen's Crying On his LoanSum Like Being Depressed @ Banks - coulda been worded better
    Suggest you take out the ploy/tricks, or be ducking a bomb

    i got NYC on this, even though a couple lines coulda been worded better, the ones that were hitting were funny and he gets my vote

    from what i've heard of hensley, he must have not tried at all. but even still, you can tell he was by far a better writer. much better transitions, setups, executions. none of the lines weren't really jaw-dropping or anything, but decent enough and fresh enough. nyc's verse, sorry man, it's like everything i dislike in a text verse. concepts are stretched as fuck, and played, on top of that. i mean, they are REAL stretched. it's almost like you are trying way too hard to be creative. wasn't feeling it.
