    How's this for "on time"?;

    Also, E-A-Ski is a Bay Area producer who signed Locksmith and produced the first Frontline albums, just in case some of you don't get that reference...


    See, T’s a weak rookie; he’ll fold-
    Cops apply pressure - he’ll drop a dime - a solid guy? Never!
    This cheap pussy’ll roll!
    On that funny shit - so T.A.C. couldn’t see a key
    If he was runnin’ with E-A-Ski, but if he plays me -
    I’ll be soft and debonair like Fred Astaire ‘til tempers flare and shots from weapons air
    Metal tears and flesh is pared ‘til he drops and his death’s declared
    The ghost rider - I rode fire - you’re lost in my penance stare
    Hold it now - slow it down
    I said the ghost writer - I wrote fire - you’re lost when my pen is dared!
    See, this man’s never seen in sessions
    ‘Cuz his morphemes are morphine
    Mine? Amphetamine injections!
    I spit acetylene - shit, my pedigree’s impressive
    Pinky dick thinks he’s sick? - It better be infectious!
    See, this gelatinous kid’s a masochist – or a mindless simpleton – tryin’ to strip a win from Ravenous!?
    I dead emcees in seconds!
    It's endgame and my pen’s lacin' his wack style -
    There ain’t a doubt – my torture tactics’ll lay him out like floor ceramics
    And the sensation is TACtile!

    I’m a Giant stomping this A, leavin straight bruises
    Cuz this battle is the battle of the bay, and Oakland always loses
    This gay chooses to bore, but’ll meet a funny end
    The most Uninteresting Man is Ravenous for a title…stay hungry my friend
    I tend to play nice, but really I don’t feel dude
    Its just too bad for the league that the Richmond refinery fire didnt kill you
    You’re not built to compete, infact I doubt ya claim
    Because you beating me is about as likely as the A’s selling out a game
    Oak-town amounts to shame, other counties gotta carry ya
    Put the 510 in his name, so he named himself after the dump of the Bay Area
    We lay barriers, “Sic Transit Gloria Mundi” don’t ask why
    The glory of the world ain’t gone, it’s just the world has passed your lame ass by
    Your trash lines get bashed spines, theres no hope for haven
    Cuz your concepts and rhymes been corny and played since Poe wrote the Raven
    So protest after this battle, riot cuz you’re stark ravin’
    Cuz I went Mehserle with the Desert Eag, now come and meet me at a BART station

    ravenous, weak showing. but on a positive note, i see potential. you have a good rhythm. problem is, you weren't really talking about shit. nothing you said was worthy of toppling an opponent in a text match. it's really that simple. not much critique needed. in a battle, text battle at least, the idea is to attack your opponent. best style is to write in couplets. that is, setup/punch//setup/punch//setup/punch//, and so on and so forth. here, you just rambled on in an unconventional style, but with decent rhythm. if you can clean up the style and actually execute a punch, you might do damage.

    tac, easy match for you. btw, i meant to say that you were very lame last week for digging up a six year old topic that is truly quite personal and best kept in the past just for a text verse that was horribly crafted. that was unecessary. after all, you knew you'd lose. but whatever. as for this match, i can say that you've come a long way in cleaning up your style. i dug the stay hungry line, though i'm convinced it can be executed better, it produced silent chuckles nonetheless. no other punches were worth noting, but i will say again that i enjoyed the style and feel while reading your verse. the confidence shone through. pretty good flow too, but just no hard hitting punches.

    Yeah, Tac won this.. although I dig Ravenous style. Unique. Just not battle-oriented. Throw a punches in there and polish it up a bit, and I think you got something. Lots of potential. Tac's wasn't a particularly great verse. Harped on the Bay/A's stuff too much.. Punches were good but not great.. Felt like something thrown together at the last minute.. but it was good enough to win. Tax takes this.

    T.a.C.

    Thought you used the Oakland-related personals as a bit of a crutch. Some of them weren't too original but to help your case, you had other good lines thrown in there- the most uninteresting man in the world punch as well as your last 3 couplets were all very good.

    Ravenous

    If you were just a little more personal with your attacks, your style would be a lot more effective. In terms of rhymes and vocab, you were head and shoulders better than the rest of the league this week. I know this is your first battle but a couple minutes of research would've revealed that T.a.C. is one of the easiest people in this league to write for. You could've mentioned something about his pic from last week, how he lost last week, how he recently changed his name, how he's a mod, how he's from the Bay Area, etc.

    Your first few lines where you mentioned T.a.C. just didn't do anything for me. Your next few lines including the 'slow it down' were really dope but just not direct enough. Your closer was your most effective line for me. If you could tailor your verse around punches like that, while still throwing in trademark creative shit like the 'slow it down' then you'll be a monster in my book.

    Vote: T.a.C.

    Ravenous - I wasn't really feeling your verse. You didn't have much that went against your opponent. It was hard to read as well as far as flow went. I felt like you were trying too hard for make your verse sound good with multies that were quite forced. The EA Ski line was weak, and the fact you had to explain it made it worse.

    T.a.C - A lot of bay area references in your verse. Just wanted to point that out. The opener was okay. you had a better sense of flow with your verse. Closer was okay as well. I liked the Poe/Raven line, however rewording would have made it much better.

    Vote - T.a.C
    Easy Margin.

    Line of the match:
    "Your trash lines get bashed spines, theres no hope for haven
    Cuz your concepts and rhymes been corny and played since Poe wrote the Raven" - T.a.C

    This gay chooses to bore, but’ll meet a funny end
