    I ain't that worried...

    I was watching MTV, thinking of what to do with Mr. Ecks/
    But I don't gotta leave you "Scarred" or "Exposed" just to prove you're getting "Next"/
    I'm ruthless with the text, you softer than satin sheets/
    Cap this geek until he fear me like boys do Catholic priest/
    I spent a minute the flow, getting rid of useles bars/
    The other 30 was spent just trying to figure out who you are/
    I figured it out, and I fool you not.../
    Yo name may be Ecks, but yo flow is bout as deadly as the movie plot*/
    But the words are sick, I'm fly, and I'll easily burn you/
    The closest you came to that, you was runnin up ya fever from bird flu/
    Don't respect me? You'll learn to. Know that I diminish reps/
    So I don't gotta worry about how I'ma get this Mr. "X'ed"/
    As you can see, Speedy's talent never left/
    This dudes animated....
    So I ain't talking toys when I say "Ecks-A-Sketch"/

    that entire stanza was fresh..first couplets were aight,but this served your verse justice..last line is a played concept,but then again i've never seen a mr. ecks before so i gave it to you..

    tic tac line was funnies..alexander line was the line of the battle, nice shit..

    good solid round 1 verse, didnt know what to expect from you..and you delivered.. g/j

    speedycalhoun..

    not even sure if this has the meaning i have for it..but i mean, this line seemed alright to me..could've been worded much diff. to hit harder,but yea..i dunno,just seemed like you had too many ecks nameplays that didnt make sense and shit..ecks a sketch?c'mon man..overall, ecks just got you punchwise and i feel if you better constructed your verse you would've had more of a chance...

    vote - mr. ecks..

    alright, cool battle here.

    speedy -
    you had an alright verse. not sure if you rushed it or not, but overall i just feel you should´ve focused on constructing sicker punchlines. the ecks plays were decent at best, but plays off a name like ecks are only god awful played and would´ve been the wrong decision, and although you chose other solutions, i just don´t feel they worked for you. lines like the ''ecks-a-sketch''.. it was just a no-no to me. i could flow your shit, but the hard hitting punchlines in which a verse needs just were not there, and think that´s what held you back from being exactly a huge threat in this battle. whether you pass or not, i think you need to work on polishing up your punches, and you could win. but unfortunately, i just didn´t think you had what it takes here.

    mr. ecks -
    you had a cool verse. you had some shit that made me laugh, some nice punchlines, and aside some unneeded shit, you overall had a pretty well rounded verse. the ''alexander'' line was bananas, lol. i didn´t get it at first, but then i did and i was like wow, he didn´t even need that good a line. last line could´ve been worded better to your advantage, but i just didn´t like the concept. it´s probably played whereever else you post, i wouldn´t know. ''Jan sport'' line was sick. i didn´t get that one at first either but after a few reads i understand what you meant, and it was a sick punchline. overall as i said, you just had the better lines and a much more rounded verse and you easily grabbed the victory in this one. good job.

    VOTE - MR. ECKS

    please pay the favor and return a vote on my battle vs. DmEtriuS when it goes up.

    this was an ok battle for round 1. props for posting early...

    Ecks i thought that your delivery was pretty straight-forward and somewhat effective. some lines lacked a little true power but for the most part it was a pretty well-rounded verse. sometimes the basic style you used kinda made the verse monotonous but still it worked out ok. good shit.

    Speedy, i thought you also had a pretty basic style. sometimes all the quotations n underlines n shit took away from the flow. and some of the punches were worded pretty strangely, to the point you gotta re-read the line and that REALLY fucks with the flow. there were a couple funny concepts, and a few decent punches, but in a tourney like this you gotta step up your game a little more.


    in the end, due to a slightly more consistent verse and a couple ideas that were a bit more fresh than his competitor.... vote-Ecks


    good shit fellas

    opener was cool. i was feeling the closer also. consistant verse all the way through. a little filler in the middle but, it happens.

    Speedy:

    i felt you sacraficed your punches for flow and multis at points nothing hit really hard IMO. the "NEXT" line was pretty good though

    decent battle here,
    good job in droppin' so early guys.
    anyway here's how i saw it broken down...


    Mr. Ecks:

    not a bad verse, there were some lines I enjoyed and some lines that really missed in my opinion. i'm not familiar with you so I'm not exactly sure what you normally bring, but here's some of the lines I liked:

    I honestly thought your first four lines were pretty weak/average.
    I thought this next set of lines were decent:

    No homo. Ya'll know we're kinda dealn' wit a faggot?
    Who's rap career is so DEAD, it literally is filled with maggots.
    As far as sex? Chicks fake on em - I really hit that, YO!
    When it come to Ecks, I get more ''Oh's!'' then a game of tic tac toe

    ^^^The X's/O's line is a good bragging line, not much of a punch but witty enough. first two lines/dead line was ok.

    I personally thought this next segment was the best of your whole verse:

    Son, you never shot 'r kill'd.......ain't a thug from any standards
    He just See hawks and be running like in Madden as Alexander.
    Backpacking faggot.. you suck, I never heard ya shit buzz
    Cuz your Jan sport is usually shopping..since thats what a bitch does

    ^^^The Jan sport line was pretty aight, probably line of your verse.
    Again, the first two lines/Alexander were ehhhh. Overall good segment though.

    Closer was decent, seen a lot of xxxx/password lines but your name is Mr. Ecks so I'll give that to you.

    I thought you had about 2-3 really nice hits and some average lines. A decent opening verse.



    SpeedyCalhoun:

    another verse that had some ups and downs as well. Again, not familiar with you so I'm not 100% sure on what you normally bring but here's how I thought it panned out...

    I honestly felt that your first four lines were just average. I think they hit better than Mr. Ecks first four though but nothing stood out. The MTV concept line was stretched and the catholic priest line has been flipped a lot but I felt they were a little stronger than his.

    the next segment,

    I spent a minute the flow, getting rid of useles bars/
    The other 30 was spent just trying to figure out who you are/
    I figured it out, and I fool you not.../
    Yo name may be Ecks, but yo flow is bout as deadly as the movie plot*/

    ^^^haha i liked that who you are line, made me chuckle a little.
    I seen Ecks vs. sever and it did suck so that personal was aight.
    I feel these four lines were pretty solid.

    next you came with this:

    But the words are sick, I'm fly, and I'll easily burn you/
    The closest you came to that, you was runnin up ya fever from bird flu/
    Don't respect me? You'll learn to. Know that I diminish reps/
    So I don't gotta worry about how I'ma get this Mr. "X'ed"/

    ^^^the bird flu line was an ok concept, but the set up was stretched to me a little, coulda worded it better. The Mr. X'ed line was an average line, probably seen that personal a thousand times as well. Ehhh segment to me.

    ANd then the closer used another Ecks line that I thought wasn't that impressive and didn't hit that hard.

    Overall, decent verse with about 1-2 good lines and the rest were name plays that needed more creativity.


    I feel that this battle should go to Mr. Ecks. I thought you both matched each other for the most part but Ecks had the Jan sport line, and his closer was less played/harder hitting than Speedy's.

    Ok battle here, good luck to both of you.
