    Ok didn't win ish. This was a tie. Ok really has some of the worst delivery ever! Trex has great actual rapping during battles. Like EF said i'll take some off for my bias but speaking of bias....FUCK YOU CALI THAT CROWD WAS BULLSHIT. You guys now NEVER have the right to say NY is biased that was fucking ridiculous. Good battle i wanna say rex butt ok did have some lines like the ''we'' one. So for me its a tie.

    First thing, I'm glad this really solid, HIGHLY debatable battle is here so we can all talk about it instead of like, porn stars or state of emergency trolling affairs addresses and shit. I'm excited about this.

    So, Rex clearly got him in the first round. His concepts were solid, his delivery was ferocious, and he had some more complexity in his bars than I saw in the last two rounds. I thought he lost steam after that though. His second saw him fall into some pretty basic schemes. His wordplay was kinda ehhhh and his actually rhyming structures were not that impressive. His delivery stayed on point for the whole battle except a pretty noticeable stumble in the third. And while I think he was falling off he still had some dope schemes when they were working (love the "OK" bit in particular).

    This was one of my favorite performances from Okweez. His second in particular was stupid. He had great concepts throughout aside from that cheeseball shit about T-Rex evolutionary patterns in the first. Honestly? I think a crowd like this takes away from the appeal of Ok's shit more than Rex's. He can rarely finish a four bar scheme without having to stop in the middle. Awk has great rhythm, and his best punches come through when he can showcase it. This battle it was even more drawn out because he had to deal with Rex being a little bitch during his rounds alongside of the crowd cutting him off. He did his best transitions in the second and the whole round was smooth.

    I think his bars were more complex than Rex's from a structural standpoint most of the time. He had more internal schemes, more well put together multi's and he was always really direct with his punches. He draws out those well written schemes, but they're still really well written. The Free vs. Cassidy punch in the third? Woooo! All the Dot Mob shit in the second? Woooo! Rex spits fast, but a lot of the time he's not saying shit "I'ma whoop his ass cause I'm gangsta and he's not, I'ma whoop his ass cause I'm real, and he's not" ... like, so what?

    I don't think Rex was very focused in this one. I think EF is WAY off saying this is one of his best performances. I thought he was WAY WAY WAY better against Math than in this joint. And I think the reason is that he knew he could come to Cali, take Ok as light work, get paid and go back to NY saying "yeah, I didn't even try and I slaughtered that fool anyways, the crowd was just dickriding."

    Which is partially true. But he still lost this battle. Ok got him in the second and the third. And I think he'd do well in URL ... they'd let him rap over there. The crowd might give him crickets, but a URL performance from Ok will look better on camera than a GT one, guaranteed.

    LETS TALK ABOUT SYLLABLES AND SHIT GUYS YEAHHHHH!!!!!!!

    Good battle, much respect to everyone involved in putting it on.

    They cap views at 300 or so I believe and then hit the video with all the extra views at a later time. (Not sure why)

    It's been viewed far more than it lets on.

    I don't even know how boxing is scored, I just like watching people beat each others asses... That's just how it broke down in my head... I agree that Trex had a 10 opener though...

    I think T-Rex is really good but Okwerdz won. The battle was close, closer than Okwerdz vs Arsonal, but not so close that a winner can't be determined.

    T-Rex was pretty annoying at times and behaving like a twerp

    "make me" - no, come on now, just do your rap.

    I thought T-Rex trying to preempt Okwerdz ear lines was pretty good, but Okwerdz rebuttle and his follow-up inevitable ear lines were great. I also liked that Okwerdz recycled his Captain Planet reference - with Arsonal's name tacked on - in a scheme about recycling.

    Maybe now that Okwerdz beat T-Rex he won't feel so bad about admitting to losing to Hollow.

    i think youtube only updates the views every certain amount of hours tho. it will jump from like 300 to 3,000 after a certain period of time or something.

    Wtf? Maybe its because I only listened to the audio (I'm at work)... but unless T-Rex completed a watercolor painting during his rounds there's no way he took it. His third round was fuckin garbage... all that racial shit was just super wack to me. Okwerdz spit relevant bar after relevant bar. T-Rex started off pretty strong in the first but fell the fuck off after that, you could tell the crowd would give a chuckle or two just so it didnt get, excuse the pun, awkward. Okwerdz demolished him.

    Off top, Okwerdz got this 2-1. I know yall are saying Math said shit before, but I went based off performance and content, Rex's 1st round was fire...his 2nd round was dope but fell off and okwerdz edged it, then the 3rd, Okwerdz BODIED the 3rd. the Freeway line, Chicken noodle soup line. shit was crazy.

    Rex was borderline racist with that white voice he ket doing, the put white people in a box line, and the whip your ass for Rosa Parks shit....how much shit would Ok have caught if he'd have said "Ill whip your ass til you say your name is Toby"?? Im all about it being a battle and anything goes, just pointing out that Ok couldnt have gotten away with the same approach.

    I thought T-Rex was more basic than Okwerdz in this battle to be honest, Okwerdz really stepped up his shit.

    Arsonal didn't look too confident raising his hand, looking down at the ground and shit.

    Even if he did better during Math, this could still count as "one of his best performances"... haha, there's more than one performance in a plural form.. but yeah, he did great in the Math battle. I just think he had to adapt a bit more for this battle and that earns some points.
