This is a serious fucking battle. With this format, there is GONNA be some filler on both sides. All the 32/32 battles had it, really you'd have to be terrible at writing concise lyrics, or just have more ammo than Schwarzenegger in order to fill up that much with constant specifics. That said, both Mad and Teq were as specific as can be expected, and both of them came to THIS battle. So really complaining that only one side had filler in this battle and using that as a reason to vote is pretty ridiculous. Learn to listen.
MadFlex is great, denying that leaves your sanity in question. He came with some tight lyrics that would knock out most emcees here. The problem is, I think he wrote his verse to someone who lost to PigPen, and not to someone who had a serious chance to win it all. Mad wrote a lot of his verse making 'clever' Teq-related rhymes that a million other people haven't already done before. This is a cool thing to do if used as a spice, but as the main ingredient it left a bad taste in my mouth. Also saying things about plagiarizing, I've listened to quite a bit of Immortal Technique, but I don't see a lot of similarities. Unless MadFlex just means with the name, in which case that's pretty weak.
Teqneek comes in and I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I've never heard him spit a bad verse, but he obviously doesn't have the battle-experience that MadFlex has, and it's hard to know what he might attack. He does a good job ragging on Mad's lack of presence in the competition (even though for a legit reason, this is to be expected). Basically I think Teq did as good of a job ragging on MadFlex as Mad did ragging on Teq.
This is one of those REALLY rare instances where the content is good enough on both sides that I have to resort to flow and rhyme scheme to make my decision. They both flowed quite well, but Mad didn't have the smoothness that he's exhibited in the past.
The decision-maker for me was when Teqneek started in with "I'll smack you back ..." That was so fucking hard-hitting and dope that I can't stop listening to it.
This battle was really close, but I have to give it to Teqneek by a dick-length... I have an extremely miniscule penis :(
