Jakobe really bodied here. LTrane came up with a few nice shots but he didn't string as hard as Jakobe did ('worst thing you did was rip a tag off a mattress' vs 'after stalking me you're blocking me'). LTrane wasn't bad but Jakobe makes a good point that his flow is so-so and the doubling is really unnecessary.

ill have to give this to jakobe because his flow was better, he had better punches, and went more personal with it. i didnt appreciate the jb disses/comparisons, simply because ltrane sounds nothing like bieber at all, where-as jakobe's last round did have a tyler the creator type flow. but jakobe still had dope funny punches that won him the battle, and ltrane had a lot of generic filler. a good battle but jakobe takes it.

Verse 1 (Ltrane):
Opened up with filler, a lot of filler throughout, and the flow was slow but somewhat entertaining for a battle. I liked the mom/dad diss, the boy model diss, and the TC diss, they were ok. I also liked your ending, but still I didn't hear any knockout punches in this verse.

Verse 2 (Jakobe): Punch after punch, you came in this immediately attacking and flipping lines. The double every line, the FB Page diss, the TC wanna-be flip was dope too. A couple great punches, but this is still a close one. Great verse though.

Verse 3 (Ltrane): Big quality difference, but the lyrics weren't bad at all. There was a lot of filler again, but still some good disses, with an easily understood flow, nice. The mattress line, but dissing him twice on the male model thing, was a bad move. You already mentioned, its good to move on from it now. Beat by bieber ending was ok, but became wack the minute Jakobe laughed at it. At this point, its still close, but I'm expecting a finisher from Jakobe.

Verse 4 (Jakobe): I was expecting it, and it happened. Great disses, great flips, worse flow, but still dope. The underestimated ending was a great personal punch as well, the flow pertains to rhythm flip was good too, and the slow-flow diss was great. The dipshit-bitchin line was ok too, gave me a good laugh. I think Jakobe finished it off with this last verse.

Overall, good job to both competitors, Ltrane had some good stuff, but Jakobe just came with it. He had some filler too, don't get me wrong, but in the end, he just had more personal punches and better flips, with a nice smooth flow. Gotta give it to him, good job.

Ltrane: Really digging his switch up flow in the 1st verse. Most of the content was on point, some of the insults were filler/generic. The mixing on 2nd verse wasn't good. The Beiber flip was questionable.
Jakobe: That calm delivery throughout was good. The response were on point. The low pitch mixing on the dubs were bit a overplayed. 2nd verse was awesome: Flow pertains to rhymth-> flow so slow, not lifting, generic shit...not flipping..bitching, shitty mixing. Nicely played angle.

Ltrane went into this with decent disses but his lack of noticeably responding/defending anything Jakobe dropped on him lost it for me. "You said the same thing the last bitch did"

Jakobe wins it

Jakobe just ran away with this from his first verse and on but comparing there first verses would be like comparing copper to gold. Ltranes second verse brought him back it felt more real and was solid but really Jakobes first verse still in all honestly won this it had flips all over it, punches, and a sick ass flow but his second verse was like a hammer pounding nails into a coffin. coffee goes to Jakobe cause coffee is for closers

Winner: Jakobe
ps. not a dick rider
