Wyze, I don't need to look it up. I just view grime as being the music and the lyricist together. When you're rhyming double-time over a slow beat, it's a little different to me. It was a good effort, I thought it sounded more UK techno club style than grime.

Everyone's talking about how he had no emotion or anything in his recording, but I thought it was fairly apparent he's more of a grime rapper than hip hop rapper. I guess grime really doesn't translate across the Atlantic for most people

I thought he did great. He had plenty enough emotion in his vox, it was the other guy who flopped on emotion. When his lines came through I just wanted to stop listening, y'know? It sounded like he was mad sleepy or some shit so I had to laugh when he said there was no emotion in FatBeats' set.

I'm not a hip hop rapper either. Rap=/=hip hop, though.

It also saddened me to see people factoring into their scores that they couldn't understand TehSlapHappy clearly enough. This is the kind of bullshit I hate seeing, because it really shouldn't matter if you can understand them or not, that's your handicap. Same goes to the opposite battler. If you can't understand them, please just stop and think for three seconds and then maybe slow the track down if you're having that much of an issue. I could understand FatBeats fine and I could understand TehSlapHappy fine, so do the contestants a favor and listen to it until you come to grips with what they're saying.

Fatbeats had an excuse for not being clearly understood, accent and recording quality; but after a few concentrated listens I WAS able to understand him. I liked his style so I didn't mind listening to his verse over.

Slaphappy... either he rushed it or something but I found some of his lines slurred and tough to catch. I'll leave it at that.

Let's be fair to the listeners. The combatants should putting the effort to make their lines clear. In a REAL battle, if you're lines aren't heard or understood on the first run it's a wasted effort. Why shouldn't people be judging on the clarity of verses?

Exactly. In a battle, especially a written one, it's about your production, as well as your punches, flow and sound. In a true freestyle battle, with a crowd around listening, you have to say it clearly, and your punches gotta be crisp, offensive and hard. Otherwise, the crowd won't give two shits about what you're saying if they can't understand it.

What's the point of insulting someone if they can't hear or understand it?

GSK was so overwhelmed by my verse that he dropped everything and headed towards the Appalachian Mountains on a journey of self-discovery.

Appreciate all the feedback everyone.

Hopefully I will have a better mic in time for the 2012 competition, then I won't be let down by people not being able to understand my verses...

Out of curiosity, how long do the battles get for judging? Is there a set end-date or is it separate for each battle?

Man..that Antmann/insomniac battle is by far one of the closest in the history of any NGHH match up. Gonna have to listen to it at least a couple more times.

Probably a week or more. I'll release all of the decisions at the same time, unless any of the battles start taking ridiculously long.

I sent a wave of PMs to the MCs we're waiting on today as well, hopefully we'll start getting a few more verse 2s in. Feel free to send PMs and bug the MCs as well, that should help hurry things up.

I would like to know who is zero bombing these battles.
NG should have a tracking system so that we can find out who these turds are and take care of em accordingly.

I'm pretty sure they do; the mods can check what you have voted on. I think it was probably SKS.

Isn't the art rad? Kuoke worked with the 2nd and 3rd place artists to put it together, I think it turned out quite nice.

I may or may not have to take another day on this. I'm busy with job searching and other real life nonsense.

Hopefully it'll be done today.

MC McFist is out with food poisoning. Personally, I'd rather my submission not be just 16 bars of me vomiting in front of my mic.

Most of my classes are cancelled tomorrow, though, so...yeah.
