Dope battle. Both of you did well and I had a hard time deciding on who to vote for.
Richard had sick punches and better recording quality, but Fat Beats was more personal with his, and I liked some of his schemes better. Fat Beats gets my vote by a whisker.
its pretty close rich didnt seem to be trying or maybe he thought that way of flowing sounded better with this particular beat Fatbeats did a good job with flips and personals and so did rich but i had to listen twice to completely understand fatbeats which i rarely have to do but in this case it was so im going to say winner: Richard
Given Beats is my homie, but Rich was massively lazy, over-defensive and filler filled. Real talk, I dig Rich in most of his battles, but in this his trademark drawling arrogant swag came across completely unjustified and hollow. Birth certificate was a sick punch though, piercing kinda hit. The funny part is that most of Rich's shit was aimed at FB never getting listened and a FB track is one of the four featured, erm, most listened tracks on the website which is pretty shitty research.
Now to ragging on Beats- the vocal was rendered way worse than it should have been due to bad EQing, just some soft bass reduction could've gone a long way, especially against someone with a voice and a mic like Rich's. I felt like although Beats had hella sick punches, he emphasised the wrong ones, ending the first verse on filler and all that. A few too many single syllable rhymes for my tastes, although to be fair he had a few hella fly schemes, soo it doesn't come off too bad.
Give it to Beats, he ragged on Rich harder, more accurately and without coming across a knob cheese and without having so many cringe moments as Rich (when he rhymed gimmick, aka the most rhymable word ever created with idiot, I died a little inside. Tied with "is she a disease or an STD" cringe predominated through Rich's verses).
- "I listened to your first EP it was terrible/ after that it all kinda went downhill"
- "Leave you with carpol tunnel syndrome if you make it the whole beat"
- "Yeah I'm the muscle stretcher and I'm mad flexing on you"
Damn, sick battle buys. Rich's first verse was extra nicee
Nice instrumental, good battle!
