Well, you're right, and you're flow is good. But the only way for you to really win this battle, is if they consider flow more than lyrics. Do you really want flow to be more important than actual lyrics? I'm not trolling or trying to be a dick here, I'm just saying.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that I think in a BATTLE, the attack is most important. You could have used those lines against anyone here, they were not personalized. Therefore Wyze wins.

I try to factor everything into it.

For example, if someones rapping is a pile of shit but they have great lyrics, then it's still a pile of shit. It works in reverse too, someone can have the best flow in the world but if they're spittin' a bunch of horse shit then it's still horse shit.

Shit.

It looks like I'm gonna advance, so I'm puttin this out there WAY ahead of time.

I'm gonna be in Vegas for my birthday from March 22-26, AWAY FROM MY GEAR. So I asked BigRed for an extension cuz I wanna stay in this shit. I want that premium Soundcloud account.

Just lettin yall know way ahead of time so nobody thinks I'm duckin anybody. If I don't show up for the second round, it's cuz BigRed decided not to give me that extension. You'll have to excuse me. I'm gonna be in Vegas alone with the girl that inspired "White Girl Love Song." LOL

Also, if there's any way I can work around the extension, I will. hip hop first, before any broads.


no, really...DON'T CLICK THE PIC

Its looking pretty neck and neck in terms of the reviews from MCs and non MCs for me and Beats to advance. Just wondering: what if there's a tie Red? Do we get to double team Gas?

In the event of a tie I will re-open voting and get some more impartial judges in to make the call, likely dudes not from NG, who do not know either one of you, and have solid experience with battle rap.

The fact that so many Americans can't understand us is really detrimental to all of us Brits. Especially *ahem* those of us with thicker accents.

Ah well. We'll live.

Also, I've noticed a distinct lack of European and 'Latino' MC's in this place.

I don't know if you mean actually living in South America, but believe it or not i am Latino

Look, P, you seem like a reasonable dude from the research I was doing, but you have to remember, rap battles have always been about insulting your opponent. Yes, flow and delivery factor into it, but what you say is still the most important part of a rap battle. You didn't attack me, other than a couple of lines. Yes, you got me on flow, I will give you that, but do you really think your flow advantage is enough to make up for the fact you didn't attack?

Not trying to be a dick, but take it as a learning opportunity. Battle means fighting your opponent, so throw some punches next time.

all the same, have to say though, I do like your style. Also, how's the album/mixtape with KRS-One's son coming?

I feel you on that. Next battle, I do I'll step the game. No hard feelings.

As for the EP with KRS-One's son... It's going really well. We did a 6 track EP when we were younger (which compared to what we can do now, is a joke) and some of that can be found online, but we have both kind of disowned that lol. Now that we're much more experienced our next project is going much harder and had way more structure and style to it. I have my debut solo mixtape coming out on the 22nd, so after that we're going to be focusing on the EP and make more progress with it.

BTW, how did you find out about the project?

P64 your flow is one of the best around here, for sure. But there's a shit ton of info on Wyze you could have dug up and you didn't. If you were in front of a live crowd, there would not have been any defining moment of your verse where people felt that you attacked Wyze, other than the Steve Irwin's ghost line, which didn't hit very hard because a stingray killed Steve Irwin.

^I agree with that statement, but I think your decision to declare mine a draw was a bit of a jump. By that "if this was a live battle" logic, EJ would have gotten booed off stage within the first five seconds. And you know that to be true. No disrespect to him or you.

"You sound like a white and gay DMX" is not a punchline. Especially when I don't sound anything like DMX, lol.

I'm just saying. There's a reason why "Bars over jokes" is printed on t-shirts at KOTD and GrindTime events.

No disrespect, but when I heard your stuff that was all I could think about. Granted, all I've heard was the hype track and current battle, so his normal flow might be different. But has anyone ever told you that Bill?

It's all good man. I've been told I sound like a cross between the God of Abraham and Steve Buscemi.

You don't bite Tyler, but your voice is definitely reminiscent of him I'd say. Good Luck in the battles.

I am voting and Im a non-MC. Though to be fair, was going to enter into the competition (having not battle rapped before).
