    You're not dope. So why even proclaim Pro?
    Your wreckreational drugs doesn't consist of any cocaine flow
    Ur not spittin' insane bro. We don't look into what you wrote
    we read your verses like your name..with eyez outside the quotes
    really though, I'm uninspired, exceedingly
    cuz you're more than a Squared guy. And plus you'll need that third power just to equal me
    thinking you're a smartass? You're bout as dumb as two knats
    You've civil rights to this win, but voters like "Eyezenhower you gonna do that??"
    Ya too wack. It's even privilege that you're getting nameplays
    You're just an extra in this RBL scene...a no name who's never seen the mainstage
    This place=Illuminati. And your style, I don't condone it
    We have to sacrifice something for the league to prosper, so why not my current opponenent?

    Gramur - Nothing special. Flow was okay. Nothing spectacular as far as rhyme scheme and structure went. I will say that Eisenhower line was clever. Definitely could have been the line of the match with some re wording. The eyez outside the quotes was okay. Cool concept but needs some re wording.

    Wreck - Opener killed it. 2nd 2 lines were good too. Not feeling the next couplet, though. Remake of Troy line was cool. Better flow than your opponent. Through some nice digs in there. Your best line was the opener, though. Line of the match definitely. Good shit.

    Vote - Wreck'n'Eyez

    this was a tight battle. wreck's opener is a played concept vs Gram, but he flipped it pretty nicely. to me the line about turning their nose up was dope as fuck, but the set up was pretty bleh. shoulda said Dub instead of W. liked Gram's eye out of the quote line the best out of his verse. all in all, i think wreck edged this.


    vote- Wreck

    I dont think Gram tried in this battle, i;ve seen him do WAY better. But Wreck's 1st few bars were okay. He takes it easy.

    Gram: a mix of "decent" punches and "okay" punches but aside from the 'eyez outside the quotes' punch, most of them weren't set up too well... I like your style though; you might just want to consider putting a little more time into your verse for fine tuning.

    Wreck: Your verse was fairly basic but what separated it from Gram's was that your punches were set up/worded much better.... Thought your last two couplets were "meh" but everything before that was solid.

    This battle was a lot closer than the votes will make it out to be- similar styles but one was just executed better.

    Vote: Wreck

    this battle was much more in line with what i'm used to in regards to style. makes for a much more readable match. still, you both fell short in talent. the punches were weak and the setups were forced, in most cases. i see issues in every thread in regards to votes and its troubling to realize the new standard of "dope". for instance, tacky quoted a line that didn't even rhyme with its setup—the W/nose up. in what world does that rhyme? i mean, the punch was a decent idea, but again, executed poorly.

    gram, you haven't gotten much better. it's been like 2 years, and you haven't gotten much better. i applaud you for sticking with it and keeping this as a hobby, but damn. i remember when i first started doing "text" and i immediately improved my skill level and continued to progress as the text arena evolved. doesn't seem to be happening any more, and maybe its a result of a lack of talent. the best of the best bottom feeders will stand out amongst a pool of bottom feeders. in just reading two matches, i see now that it's not fair for me to be here. overall, i didn't like your verse. as stated, the style was more in line with what a verse should look and read like, but your punches/content is not up to par. weak punches throughout.

    wreck, i'd say you were just slightly better as a result of better ideas behind your weak punches. but, all in all, still weak punches throughout. mostly bad execution and shit that just didn't work for me. the troy line, for instance, which keeps being quoted—what about that is dope? it doesn't even make sense. i mean, i get the rearranging sets and movie/film reference, but the use of Troy makes no more sense than the use of any other movie title and the line itself is just weak. rearranging sets is not clever. nose up line was the best single idea in the match, but terribly executed. hell, it didn't even rhyme. just too much to complain about. i like being positive, but it's a tough week.

    vote - wreck'n'eyez

    hopefully, people take my criticism to heart and work to improve.

    Well Q I really didn't try hard this battle, but I mean, if you have that same opinion towards some of my other verses where I actually tried, then I'd agree with your statement. But the last impression is what matters I guess lol
