Richard's flow is a tiny bit off and it harms him a lot considering who he's up against. I looked through Richard's bars twice wondering if he made any fuckups and honestly I feel like his bars couldn't have been much better, but Eq still took it. Dude came with crazy punches and didn't let up for as much as a couplet.
It kinda sucks to know that we'd have a straight 5 stars from everyone if not for the guys who comment "this belongs in the audio portal" with 0 stars and no real fair reasoning behind that. I don't understand why they don't take time out of their day to comment on the submissions that REALLY broke the rules, but whatever. That's just my opinion.
ok, tight battle guys an sick beat.
im enjoyin RJAs sound, an he had a good first round, but so did EQ - I feel both artists coulda hit a bit harder in some of the lines - but all in all the first verses in comparrison were close. now...when it comes to the second verse, I feel RJA fell off from the battle mode he held in the first, maybe he was tryin to flip more lines, but I personally dont feel like it worked out as well as it coulda for him - or maybe Im jus on the bump of the first 2 verses an it wasnt holdin weight. . . tho EQ I feel held his game up an had a more successful attack mode --
so with that Ima have to say this one goes to EQ
good job guys.
Definitely RJA on this one. I would write a long review breaking down each artists skills but it seems everyone else here has basically hit the nail on the head. So yeah. Good effort to both dudes. Dope battle.
I was really impressed with RJA's verses, he stepped up his flow, delivery and mateial here. EQ was good, but his stuff was shit I've heard from him in earlier rounds; although I found his dubs/libs to be annoying and obnoxious. I'm giving this to RJA, he was more enjoyable to listen to here. Awesome battle though; one of the best I've heard this year.
