i kinda agree with jizznips breakdown, but i honestly feel like okwerdz just barely won, due to trex not making any sense with a good sized fraction of his material. you just cant say that much retarded shit that makes no sense, and expect a discerning listener to give you the thumbs up. no. i wanted to find a reason to vote for trex, and even tho i appreciate rapping in rap, when you make up words, thats more like scatting. trex is a scat man, or maybe a cool scat cat, but some shit he was saying was just embarrassing. doesnt matter how cool he tried to play it off as, or how much more harmonious his delivery and rapping skills are. okwerdz on the other hand is local, and for that reason, I DO have a slight bias towards him. i'm not gonna front. but because of my nature and personal convictions, i always do my best to acknowledge that side of me, and make as fair a decision as i possibly can in spite of my disposition. okwerdz verses were mechanically sound, but i dont mean that in a good way. his flow and delivery improved (imo) since the hollow battle, and his third round was official, but his approach is just a little too formulaic for my tastes. he raps a little like conceited and they both have the same kind of appeal to me. i think okwerdz (as a battle mc) would be much more effective if he didnt stop every four bars, and link his concepts better in terms of rhyming. its funny that freeway was der, and ok refernced that cassidy battle, 'cause if ok was just a little more inclined to link his shit cleaner, then he'd sound a lot like cassidy, who imo, is one of the best accapella mc's ever. but thats just ok's style. it was a really fuckin sick ass battle tho. ok 2-1. edit* one more thing: the difference between someone like conceited or okwerdz, and cassidy, besides cassidy's ability to gain momentum, and use it to gain more, is that damn near every bar cassidy says is legit. every punchline has to be fire in order to pull off that style successfully (imo of course). you cant say shit like "evolved into a chicken" and then stop as if it were a dope line. that makes a mediocre line even worse when you do that. its like screaming "bodybag" at the end of a round where you aint said shit that was hot. but thats just my two.
