That's what I'm a say if you win the G R B and are looking for payment
Ok... I don't want to offend Ribo... Homeboy, you did way better than anyone expected you to, and I had to listen to this battle multiple times to know how to vote on it.
But people are claiming you had these TREMENDOUS PUNCHES... And I'm not sure what they are referring to?
You have an incredible multi scheme, but as I broke down in my official vote, it was a lot of forced lyrics and nothing mindblowing lyrically.
So Which lyrics are blowing your minds jook and siege?
This is the same type of bar structure and writing style that ya'll gave Odd Job 8 years of torcher/misery for using...
My style is nothing like this.
If I was gonna be jealous of someone with this style, it'd be Cire who does it at a much higher level.
But I don't rap anything like Cire, so I'm not jealous of anybody.
But which of those lyrics I quoted blew your mind??? I selected all his punches from the first half of the song up to a certain point and wrote em there for you.
noodles in here swaying b
PS huey and mr x posting tonight
hope it's raw
@J o o k experiencing a fucking personality switch all of a sudden... i'll holla
@Free Lynx let it be known that I think the way this thread went off was disrespectful to you.
lets keep it civil boys
i think there needs to be a staff meetin for all yall
I lost interest in Ribu bout 2 mins in...thought you was nice but ya verse was kinda average overall...
Parkz styled on him n got potential for sho
ya'll both picked smooth beats but Parkz complimented it better
got me hungry to hear more
Youzze a sucka! hahahaha
No offense to you but this post doesnt make sense at all. A few seconds ago you you were talking about how this is an audio battle and punches arent all there is because the rapping component comes into play. And now youre typing out the lyrics which directly take the rapping component out of play and makes it more like a text battle.
Im not gonna go back through and type out everything. I just felt Ribo had better punches overall. You can go back to the actual battle thread. Even people voting for Lynx said they felt that Ribo had better punches but that Lynx cadence was better. Its not like were the only ones who felt that way. The difference is that they felt that presence was more important than punches, and me & Jook feel the opposite.
But to you Noodles I'll ask this - is 2004 Reed Dollaz faced 2013 Thesaurus, who do you think would win? There is no doubt in my mind that Reed Dollaz can rap circles around Thesaurus, but there's also no doubt in my mind that Thesaurus is a better writer.
why r the votes anonymous?
Some of the battle threads in hook ups where where outta line.. Particularly this one.. If you gonna make an official thread for the battle links in hookups... You should keep commentary out of the thread title at least...
tldr at 12:30am tbh. will read tomorrow i guess but at this point it looks like:
"none of those punches stood out to me so i have to write lecture paragraphs to defend myself"
YOU said his punches were excellent... i quoted every one i heard in the beginning of the track... it's a simple question, which of those was one that you were like DAMN!
I cleaned up the thread once.
Lets just chalk it up to different "perspectives" of what makes a quality battle verse.
Some people obviously don't emphasize the same things.
had a meeting about this. they will not be in round 2.
unfortunately, the mistake was made and could not be corrected in time.
@Newportz got us covered on this issue, tho
Like I said im not gonna go back and transcribe everything but off top I remember the Lowkey/Loki god of mischief line being tight and Ribo going in for like a minute straight after that. And it's not just the punches but also the way he puts his shit together imo.
so now its something different then the punches...
votes arent really anonymous tho are they.. if u dont provide proper feedback does ur vote still count??
Separate names with a comma.
