PsioNic V1 - Drug diss is pretty much the only personal here but you have some really clever and unusual rhymes.

JoeyKeys V1 - Better flow is immediately apparent. "Nothing to say to me" is tight. A little overproduced, made it a bit tougher to understand. Monotone diss is okay. Lines like the one about 'how many takes' were delivered with aggression and worked out well, hanging flip is a nice finisher.

PsioNic V2 - Flow seems a little weaker. Emotion line is a little rich considering Joey (rightfully) called you monotone.

JoeyKeys V2 - Really hard to understand and a lot of filler. 0 Kelvin line is tight, toast to Joey Keys is a strong finisher.

Overall both emcees could have come a lot harder but PsioNic owned with his rhymes and Joey really brought it with his delivery. I'd give it to Joey by a small margin, would have been nice if there had been even one knockout punch.

verse 1 - Crushes them all.
verse 2 - Dude got a little better since last time.
verse 3 - Still crushing.
verse 4 - Didn't get better/good enough since last time.

Vote goes to PsioNic.

PsioNic | Verse One |

Your flow is ok in the beginning, it gets better later in on this first verse.
Your rhymes are the predictable easy scheme's, but you lay them down nicely, so thats a plus there.
You had some nice punches mixed in those easy rhymes.

JoeyKeys | Verse One |

Nice flow man. Good use of diction as well.
You flipped a bunch of his shit on him, which I like to hear, it means you listened well lol.
Personals exist here.

PsioNic | Verse Two |

Good come backs here. You hyped a bit, but im not a hater on hypes during the battle.
You had some sick flows combined in this verse too man, overall you did great on this one.

JoeyKeys | Verse Two |

Flipping the flipped flips lol.
Good job on being witty in this verse man, again, more good use of diction in your verse.
Overall, another great verse man.

Overall my vote goes to | JoeyKeys |

* This was a close battle here. I wasnt even going to vote, I had to listen to the song like 12 times to finally make this decision. It came down to the last two verses for me, and I just personally thought JoeyKeys made a very vivid statement compared to PsioNic with his last verse. This was an even battle and both MC's deserve credit for being good. I hope you guys are happy with this track, its not bad at all, you know, compared to some of these other ones lol. Best of luck to you both. *
( 4 stars for a good, enjoyable battle )

I don't think I've seen another MC with two verses so consistently good. PsioNic hits that one out of the park lyric-wise, bringing anything but cliches to the table. I also think some people mistake a deep-ass voice for monotone, which is unfortunate. Psi's rasp brings a lot of personality to his verses and you can't say he's off beat, and you can't say he doesn't have rythym.

Joey's technically sound, and maybe he has a bit more style, but his lines can't compare and nothing else about his verses really stand out to me.

He's good for sure, but PisoNic won this easily.

I vote PsioNic, I liked his metaphors a lot better.
