    Gave this a couple listens last night.

    Y'all are both dope as fuck and have been coming dope this entire tourney. Punches really started catching my attention last round and illy has been dropping nothin but solid audios. His delivery and style is well suited for this format and his lines/personals were pretty dope, i love the material thus far. Punches in the same exact boat and has that extra smoothness added that a lot of people in these tourneys don't have except a few of us left. iLLys riddick bowe reference leaned me, seems like its been a decade since I heard that name. This is a tough one, I'm leaning towards who I think got it, but I'm gonna give it a few more listens to be fair.

    Edit

    Got go illy on this one. Just edged it and I though if punches came like last round he coulda took this

    Great battle

    illy- points for using a vinnie paz beat :battlefan:

    spiked punches like high school proms :hoffagrin:

    somehow i missed illy's earlier shit. kid got a dope voice & flow


    punches got a dope voice & flow too. these muh' fuckas should collab though.
    unfortunately, none of punches' lines really stood out to me. seems less aggressive than previous rounds.

    Punches - STRONG PUNCHES hence why your name is what it is .... LOL Dope shit I liked it ...

    ILLY - I remember when you used to be wack ... you have improved alot as a artist and this was a strong attempt but I just feel Punches came with more creative lines that hit harder but this beat is ILL

    Illy- Nice beat. Unique flow. Lol@ Thundercats line. Most of your punches punches are kind played bro. Punch after punch after punhc until I kick your head in line was sick. Wow got better here. Sponsors from Nike Air damn. I feel like you did WAAAAY better last round.

    Punches- Nice intro lol. Nice beat. Optimus prime was decent. Ill keep it battle rap, cuz your bad at that LMFAO. Michael Vick, kill mens best friend god damn this is monster.Wow@ the comparisons. Punches came in as a monster, and Illy just pulled punches without landing landing punches because he loves him.

    Vote- Punches

    Both took it a little easy on each other but I think punches approach was better. Though it did make it harder to judge when you know both took the foot off the gas. I'm rolling with punches like I'm dealing with a rough situation very well #bars

    Ok listened again. Honestly, I thought both verses kinda sucked lyrically. I know you both can do better but this was ass for a semifinal effort.

    Dont know why people acting like yall snapped because this battle was pretty corny. Still feel like illy was better.

    Vote illy

    wow this is close... 9-7...

    does my vote count this late? i mean it doesnt really matter, i cant change the outcome..

    but im such a fuckin fan of illys delivery man.. i dunno.. but punches took it lyrically, not by a whole lot but i also feel he went light being their friends, same of illy, especially after hearing punches dig into me lmao shit.. i dunno man... i gotta rock with illy, i dont know why im so uptight it doesn't effect much and it probably wont count being its after midnight, this was close but also not what it could've been i know ya'll are both more capable of this so it's not really a real judgement on what you both can really do. especially with somebody you know an can pick apart but wont haha you guys gotta get in a fight sometime so you can really battle, i wanna hear that shit
