First off, nice job Ax, you made a real tight beat for this one.
Byron V1 - Rhyme scheme is kind of weak but you keep a steady volley of punches coming and a lot of energy. Flow gets a teensy bit off at a few points. The jabs at Phonix's mixing is the stand-out punch here.
Phonix V1 - Lots of filler but I'm really digging your flow and rhymes. Touching on doubled vocals and trying to flip the veteran line are okay but neither really wowed me.
Byron V2 - Need a translation is decent. Lots of flips but I really wasn't feeling any of them - it seemed more like you were summarizing Phonix's verse than flipping it. You also sound rather deflated compared to the energy you brought in your first verse.
Phonix V2 - Pretty similar to the first verse. Very showy flow/multis and a few okay flips.
My rubric for judging leans pretty heavily on personals, which this battle was kind of light on. That said, both of you were about equal when it came to those, with Phonix being the clear winner for rhyme scheme and creativity. Byron also fell off in his second verse when he brought very little energy to the mic.
verse 1 Byron sounds without inspiration, and Phonix sounds like in a tin treble can without any bass in the first verse everyone loses in the first verse but Byron a little less.
Byron ultimately is a bad Teqneek not so much a slim shady Phonix. Phonix could slow down a pinch and be way better, he seems to be racing and trunicating to the point of uncomprehension a problem I have and its hard because we all understand ourselves but which is why these online battles are so sketchy to begin with.
No winners draw.
I think Byron was slightly edged-out by Phonix on this one. The young man has skill!
Phonix. Go buy a good microphone and release some tracks, your flow and schemes are ill.
I have no vote on the battle but damn that was dope. Both MCs killed it.
