    I feel like the British in 1775, a quote like that's original
    this battles Bunker Hill - crossfires where i'll Putnam in general.
    If u had a dragonball, you'd wish for a piece of ass in bed
    girls rather prevent namix explosion.. and frieza batch instead.
    speakin of ya bitch men do more than lay eyes upon
    cunt squirts like old faithful - fitting i find that geyser pond.
    don't think forced wordplay will cut it, we've noticed..
    i'll give ya heart an energy kick that'd rival the red bull siege posted.
    plus ya took a backseat to Sur5ill's n Meta's style proper
    sat there so long you had to reinvent the wheel... like a toddler.
    nam's pussy of his crew too; they take beatings often..
    He plays rogue squadron, poolin energy if anyone lays a finger on em!
    I'll cut ya oldest living relative, hug while i show em harm
    take a blade to his family crest and watch blood coat his arms.
    BJ hyped u in the worst way; he must have absurd taste..
    ya didnt just meet low expectations..
    ...u knelt down and proposed on the first date.
    so curse fate, n get beheaded as pandemonium strikes
    u'll 'parish by the sword' - like masons did the ceremonial rights.
    N on drinking nights he'll charge his binges on a whim
    card stays maxed out at the bar like all his lifts at the gym.
    I made a meal, u no longer have the same appeal
    my set'll cook em with the piece.. enamelware the stainless steel.
    In a UFC bout i'd take the heel or kill em with punches..
    Gimme the gold, ya didn't even deserve a Silva for this Sonnen.

    lol, who am I battling here?

    Thorne is just a little prick; Cal’s a bigger prick, but hey
    I’m the kind of prick that’d give both these bitches aids!
    calibre & thorne got a lot in common, that’s easy to neglect
    I’d end ‘em both with e’s like fuck bein grammatically correct
    I’d say thorne DOESN’T really suck, becuz he needs some luv
    but THAT kind of sugar codeine would redefine placebo drug!
    his body went missin, people quit looking, wasn’t even a day
    before that party came back with nothin but a reason to rave
    yet he survived, heard they didn’t try, ‘n was killed by insult
    cuz the ‘search term’ was so short…
    …….google returned ten zillion results!
    my style’s fuckin superb; it aint subtle, kid loves it for sure;
    thorns all over my balls like my sacks got wita couple of burrs
    now he’ll leave the battle sour, say he’s takin outta context
    and be over-the-top bidder like I auctioned off my concepts
    uppin hair, ya get maimed! no lion – pussy, face it- ya lame
    i thought thorn could draw blood but he just traced it in vein
    on bended knee; pre-mag I predicted more predictions for me
    cuz against you? the pixel seem more clear than a 1080p
    da faults in his style is why this beating is decisively rendered
    da fault’s also his excuse for his profile’s undecided gender
    sound da bitch alarm; known to twist an arm, pullin it loose kid
    heard ur shoulder blade sounds like *POP*, & sodas ya music
    don’t know he’ll lose it? sad as shit; man, he’s so fuckin sorry;
    he’ll prolly owe Mitt a vote quick as the damn republican party

    Thorne - solid verse. Flow was pretty on point. Had some cool concepts in there. I hope people understand the red bull line. Just have to hope that people read that battle first. But hit after hit definitely, lots of quotable bars. The Frieza line, geyser pond couplet, and the closer were stand outs for me. Nice verse.

    Namix - Another solid verse here man. Your flow was impeccable. Had alot of quotable in your verse. That e's line was siiick. Placebo drug was dope. I liked the burrs line. Simple, but made me chuckle. Pixel line good play on words. Gender line - at first I didn't understand it until I re read it as defaults. Nice touch. Soda pop line was creative. Closer was creative.

    You both have similar styles here. I like how Thorne attacked nam's name a bit, and referenced nam's style from Sur 5 iLL and Meta. Nice touch. Both had a solid flow. Namix came into this match with some serious confidence, though - and backed up that confidence. Namix had the witty punch lines with some dope wordplay.

    THIS SHOULD BE BATTLE OF THE WEEK.

    Vote - Namix

    Line of the Match:
    "calibre & thorne got a lot in common, that’s easy to neglect
    I’d end ‘em both with e’s like fuck bein grammatically correct" - namix

    Some may disagree, but I chose this line because it's a straight dig at Thorne's name, along with Calibre's name. Good play on words (e's/ease). The pick'll/pixel line was good, but it wasn't a DIRECT hit to his opponents name. Same with the other lines. Still dope.

    Great battle guys.

    This was a dope battle, I suppose....fun to read....alot of forced "associative" wordplay...

    What I mean when I say "associative" is that none of it actually forms a coherent genuine double entendre...associative wordplay seems all the rage these days...but I don't really condone it because it's just too easy...

    Conceited started it and now everyone does it...

    "If he's flossin', I'll Aim with the Scope"....It's like...wow man, all those things relate to dental hygiene, but what are you really saying? There's no double entendre, although the phrase fools you into thinking that there is one...that's why I don't like it...it's disingenuous, imo....

    Here's the definition of "double entendre";

    Double entendre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia; A double entendre is a figure of speech in which a spoken phrase is devised to be understood in either of two ways.

    Genuine double entendres are difficult to come up with, and cannot be accomplished by stringing a bunch of words together that relate to each other in some random secondary capacity.

    Thorne came the closest to a genuine double entendre with the "namix explosion" Dragon Ball Z line, imo.

    Also, the "I'll end em both with e's like fuck being gramatically correct" line doesn't make sense because the word "calibre" does actually end in the letter "e", so it would be gramatically correct to "end calibre with e" or "ease"...

    It could have been a dope line, though, and could have been a genuine double entendre as well, had Namix checked the spelling of the word "calibre" and then reformatted his line...

    My vote; Thorne

    thanks for the breakdown, interesting. while i do think better examples of double entendres out of this battle would be like 'over the top bidder' (which is double entendre + pun, by very definition), i wouldn't condone voting on a battle based on such a specific/singular dimension of a battle anyway - so hey, i think your nuts but it is what it is!

    (ps, calibre is how the brits spell it, i like caliber better cuz it doesn't show up with squiggly lines under it when you type it in a post or in any microsoft office product lol)


    1-0.5..... just joking, can't count or spell.

    1-1 :)

    If your going to count Ravenous510's vote you should count mine too, because my record is better.

    This clown is a joke with no punchline, and isnt worth the box office ticket


    The only thing huge about this kid is his loss column. So do what you do best and rave-on this dick.

    Overall this was actually a pretty close battle. Namix had a couple of played concepts, but so did Thorne. Thorne had a few more lines I was feeling. I expected alot more from Namix. Thorne's verse just appealed to me a little more.

    vote: Thorne

    Nice battle

    Thorne, u had the low expectations line, the opener and the sur5/meta lines, overall u had a pretty solid verse.. Nam had the burrs, e's n pixel lines, this is a close battle still.. At first read I was leanin towards namix but after re-reading it I believe Thorne was more direct with his punches therefore his verse hit harder

    V/thorne

    This battle can go either way tho tbh

    Thorne, eh.. not entirely sure how to take this. I mean, the first line I dug was the red bull line. That shit was both original and current. Creative concept to say the least. But the setup described my feelings for the lines above it—very forced wordplay. The Putnam was a respectable idea, I just don't think you pulled it off. Same with the dragonball line. I actually thought that was a very dope idea, but you didn't sell me on it. Seemed very forced. Geyser pond drew the line. Doing too much. That said, the red bull line wasn't really hitting on much either. Setup was weak and really related to you, and the imagery wasn't authentic. Like, that's a high kick to kick a nigga in his left breast. I'm just not digging your execution of these concepts. Feels like you're working too hard to clown your opponent. Still, dug it the most thus far. Moving on, not digging the toddler line nor do I see any resemblance in nam/meta/sur. Not sure I get the rogue squadron reference. Dug the coat of arms, nice visual/concept and execution. First date was dope. Parish was pretty good/okay. Gym was gay. Enamelware was forced. Not digging silva line either. Overall, I'm not impressed. Decent, but eh.

    Namix, not sure why you stuck with cal for two lines just because he posted in the thread. Opener was blah and e's has been done before. Didn't like either of those, nor do I think you should've wasted time on Calibre. Placebo was forced. Dug the rave line. Nice concept and execution. Follow up was weak and unnecessary. Burrs was okay. Auction was blah. Seen the draw blood before, and I didn't like your rendition, nor the forced wordplay in the setup. Good concept though, but I don't credit you for it. Like pixel concept, could've been done better though. Da fault, eh. Just don't think it was useful material, but decent. Sodas was okay. Omit was decent. Overall, similar to Thorne. I mean, damn, very similar. Forced wordplay throughout, but fairly decent drop.

    Vote - namix.

    Just felt, after re-reading both verses, that he had fewer distractions with better execution than Thorne, which allowed for an easier read.
