Fantastic, oh and Gasmasq.

I just didn't like the directions Self tried to take it. The use of Fag was especially uninspired.

The whole battle sent shivers up my spine, but Gas takes it for me.

Props to both MC's though.

gasmasq, more effort in lyrics

i have to say i love self's voice and his delivery. he's very clear and he just mashes with the beat. but gasmasq was very clearly putting alot of effort into clever punches and flips, like how he called out how self's uses "kinda" alot and other stuff. i think gasmasq has a bit of an akward flow to me, as in he puts rhymes where i wouldnt want to hear em, but he kept it pretty tight this round and it was refreshing to hear a different pattern of rhyming. overall gasmaq impressed me with this comp from all the battles hes been in hes gotten better and he won me over cause at first i wasnt diggin him.

i think gasmasq put more work in on lyrics, if self had focused more on flipping disses and personals while keeping his monster charisma, he wouldve taken it. dope track

Im going to have to give to Gasmaq, he was one step up on both of his verses. But i must say it was definitely a slug fest.

Nice battle!

I gotta say I've never really liked Gas as a rapper, nothing personal, its just a matter of taste and preference. But I felt that Gas did well in this battle. My vote would have to go to Self though, hes actually got an ill style. Gas had more direct and personal disses but you gotta have the overall package to win a battle including style, delivery and flow.
