    Caliban- Shit was crazy at first. You got him on his stlye cliches. You came in nice on the second beat, smooth transition. Quality was there and flow and aggression were there.

    Taiy- Shit was nice, and beat was fit to you're style. You didn't really osund hungry enough for it. You delivered well, without aggression, is what I'm sayin.

    This one was very close but I think Caliban got it.
    Vote- Caliban

    Caliban - The beat is ... whacky lol. Some nice content on the first quasi-beat. Youre flow is insane man, lol @ wu-wear. lmfao @ off beat acapellas. Your quality is spotless, the dbz jokes are funny, you keepin it real good on this one.

    Taiyamo - This intro makes me want to smoke. lol. Your style is alot grimier than verbs, but you comin real nice. Flow is on point, quality is great. Lmao @ Michael Jackson. The battle is really nice overall, the opposite styles really make this a dieverse fight.

    Overall, its good, but I was feelin Caliban/Vertabatim more with his punches.

    Vote - Caliban

    verbs that beat was so fucking annoying. wow lol. ahh fuck, i wanna smack you for that shit lol. taiyamu had some nice flow flips, but then suffered on other parts flow wise somtimes.. it was wierd. i like creative flow.. but only when it hugs the beat fast, slow, or watever. the lyrics were a similar situation, you had some really original style punches an lines, then some that were just, too out there. i can rock with a line that doesnt fit the normal formula, in fact, id rather hear those than a basic or predictable punch any day, but some of the lyrics were really left field and unrelated to the shit. i was expecting to hear verbz and hear some really over delivery oreinted rapper that was really generic and stree styled after hearin that verse, but his shit was actually pretty dope. it was more well rounded. like i said, taiyamu was very creative, but it lacked the consistancy to keep the thin line between creativity and "wtf" crossed. verbz had something i could really vibe to and follow the entire track. a real smooth flow, some dope lines, and a good delivery as well. i didnt find it too forced or anything like wat i was expecting. i honestly think he took this. overall polished-ness was there as well. good battle.

    btw


    PLEASE hit me back wit some honest voting, even if its not for me:

    lol damn son...why you have to come at me like that? It's a battle, you do you and I do me. and isnt the point to make fun of people with witty word play, similies and metaphors, I'm not trying to save the world over here guy geez.

    And I havent listened to the radio in 5 years, literally. :)..upsy

    and thanks people quality isnt what I wanted, I realized I didnt reset my mixer from when I record some local cats. And first beat I didnt even EQ or silence my breath and did it real quick on take

    yo on some real shyt both came ok

    verbzy- that first beat u was rocking was horrible lmfao if u kept that shyt going omg i woulda turned off the audio but once u got into the onyx beat your punches started hittin harder and u came better flow wise.. shyt was dope i liked it...
    up the quality though adlibs are off a lil too but yea nice shyt

    denku- u my boy and all and usually im feeling alot of your battles alot but u came real real real abstract on this one.. i mean the beat really didnt make me feel like u was battleing it sounds more like a actual track to me then a battle track... the punchlines u brought were a lil hard to understand.. but u did have some decent ones..

    i dont know it was close to me.. i think both coulda came alot doper... but

    i think im gonna have to give this to verbzy..


    sorry denku just my opinion.. its all love yall for real.. keep doing what u doing..

    peace
