    Cryptic - Voice is kind of dismal.. not that that's bad.. I'm just a fan of grimey ass dungeon voices. Your rhymes are kind of basic. disses aren't really that fantastic, flow is on point though. I don't know man.. it seems like you really didn't want it.. I've never heard you before. This was good.. I think I'd like a concept track of you better than this

    Rhymes - lol intro is wierd.. lol the beat starts out.. sounds like of cool at first. Beat starts.. ha @ experiment went wrong.. flow is kind of unique.. you came much more hype.. flow seemed a lot more confident. better voice.. lyrics were hard enough for this.

    Vote - Rhymes.. will vote officially when Ansom gives me his pass

    Rhymes - Dope ish , flow is on point, Beat is dope, "fucking death like having sex with a corpse, sweat shops with the rest of your family, go to mardi gras to take the beads back, Tons of lines, Dope ish , Like this , hard hits after hard hits, you brought some hard ish in the first round nice ish ....

    Cryptic - Love your beat builds up and makes your battle dramatic, delivery is not very developed and that hurts the impact of your lines, some of your lines are not very hard, flow is on point, overall you came pretty nice, just need work on your overall style so your lines will have some more impact

    Overall good battle Rhymes just came with it ...

    Cryptic - your flow is smoothe on the beat, but the beat isnt particularly what I would normally expect for a battle (except with the quick strings kick in, which is nice) your voice sounds kind of distant, or muffled, I cant decide. The punches weren't great, but were good enough to get the point across, you could use a little more emotion in your voice, but I feel where you're comin from on this. Overall, as a track I think it was great, but as a battle track, you needed more hits, not bad tho.

    Rhymes - the intro could stand to be shorter, but fuck it haha, the beats nice as hell, the gleason punch was a nice starter, the flows incredible, and the flips on his catergories are nice, the quality is really nice, your presence is on point. The fucking "deaf/death" flip was tight. The picture is a nice kicker in the threat, the ghost dog punch was hot, i thought i was the only person that saw that movie. Great battle verse, tight shit.

    I've replaced Stashhh in the tournie, but i dont think i'm able to vote officially since i didn't sign up with his name.

    ----------------------------

    Cryptic Wisdom you had some fire and I think you handled yourself well for this first round. I'm not to harsh on recording and mixing issues, but this isn't a engineer tournament...so i'm basing this all on your verses. I felt you could have smoothen out the flow on this beat. I was able to listen to the entire track without a problem, but there was nothing there to made me rewind and go "WOW". still came correct nonetheless.

    RhYmEs, I must say that you had some witty ass lines. I'm really digging the punches used in this battle; however, I wasn't digging the flow. It was too choppy and I think it could have used some ironing out. Intro was funny to me lol...I'm big family guy fan. The experiment line was good and I really liked how you kept this battle personal by doing your research on your opponent. Overall a very strong verse that put you ahead.

    Despite some weaknesses I mentioned, both rappers made this an entertaining battle. But I will have to give my vote (if it even matters) to RhYmEs, just because his lines made a bigger impact and he had a more aggressive swagger to him.

    vote- RhYmEs

  9. Cryptic - Intro sound like it would be gettin into a dope song.
    beat is iight, sounds more like you would cry to your opponent over this beat though.
    flow is iight, so so at alot of parts. not that bad though. lyrics arent that bad, kinda like how you put shit together. didnt hear that many lines that stood out though, but some where there.. not a bad verse .. keep it up man..

    Rhymes - man i would pop bottles to this beat.. thats about it though..
    flow is pretty on point, seems to sped up for this beat though, woulda chose somethin else. delivery is ill. some dope lines. that sweat shops shit stood out. diggin this verse, shit was dope homie.

    Cryptic- Beat started on some tight shit. Didn't drop into something I would recognize as a battle track, but it's a nice beat nonetheless. You came with punches I thought were well worded and pretty hard, but your flow started off slow, and it took you too long to get into the beat.

    Rhymes- You have better quality, which is always something that makes a track stand out. I like your flow and mixing. The beat worked for your style. The punches were hard, and the delivery made them stick. That sweat shop line did stick out, as you can see from above comments. Overall, you sound more polished and hungry for it.

    Winner- Rhymes
