Didn't really feel that battle as a whole but K-Shine's 2nd round was RIDICULOUS. The Macho Camacho line.. god. damn.

Thanks.

And yes I cannot wait for Hollow to come back. I can watch dude's battles a million times.

I probably account for half the views for this video of all of his rounds. Dude is so consistent, every line is a goddamn quotable.

Night of Main Events 3 is today. Anyone go?

Hollow Da Don vs Tsu Surf
Hitman Holla vs Conceited
Big T vs K-Shine
T-Rex vs Dizaster
Charlie Clips vs B Magic
DNA vs Chilla Jones

Hopefully Smack uploads something for the 4th of July, but he's on "real nigga time" so I doubt that.

Also, anyone see Daylyt strip in that 'Don't Flop' battle?

Good looking, was about to post it myself. And yeah, WTF @ Hollow reusing a line, especially like that. Also looks like the URL crowd wasn't fucking with Dizaster as was expected.

And yo, I rewatched the Yung Ill Vs T-Rex battle, that shit is incredible. Not sure who I give it to, but they both had great fucking rounds.

EDIT: Hollow 2-1. 2nd round debatable, Hollow obviously has the 3rd and Surf the 1st, but I personally liked Hollow's approach more than Surf's, and Surf's 3rd round was extra weak overall.

I thought more people would stick with this thread but that doesn't seem to be the case :(

Battle was good. Chilla had a lot of hard hitting shit, sometimes he gets too much into it though. Enjoyed DNA more than I usually do too. I'd give it Chilla 3-0 but I'd understand if someone gave the third to DNA. Chilla went off in the first round especially. But good battle that wasn't exactly a landslide (no pun intended) victory.

TBQH I only really like KOTD when they bring in internationals to battle some of the bigger locals, but they're expanding now so I'm paying a bit more attention. Same goes for internationals. None of the NOME 3 matchups interest you at all? Damn. To each their own though.

Smack has put on some great battles here and there, it's just these latest matchups that don't do anything for me. I mean Tsu vs Hollow, Diz vs T Rex, Holla v Con, these are match ups where only one dude interests me (or in the Diz v Rex, neither interest me). Every so often the big cards are like that for me.

Smack has just put out a video expressing his distaste for some of the recent battles. Says it's bars over names and people have been taking a free ride on URL. Smack also details all the criticisms he's taking into account and how he's switching up Summer Madness 3 to be more comfortable. I feel him too. The Clips/B-Magic, Big-T/K-Shine, etc. battles sucked, straight up. The best anything on the channel that has been hot has been Real Deal's rounds on UFF. Been watching a lot of KotD recently, mostly matches with absorbed GrindTime rappers or people from NY though.

First Summer Madness 3 card is Daylyt and Swave Sevah. Daylyt kinda operates on a different frequency, I think dude is going to get ripped to shreds by the URL audience. If they booed Verb, they're gonna have NO patience for this dude.

Dizaster vs. T-Rex. Crowd was feeling Diz more than I expected, but really URL crowds are the fucking worst. I enjoyed this battle quite a bit. Diz kinda went in. Probably the best NOME3 battle thus far. I think only Holla and Conceited is left? Should be great, word of mouth is that it's by far the best out of the NOME3 battles.

Been watching a lot of Real Deal recently. Dude is too funny, though his freestyling isn't as great as it once was (stumbled quite a bit in UFF, dat pressure).

These are all fantastic. The fuck @ Lottazay dressed like one of those Star Wars guards though lol That battle is definitely one of the better ones I've watched this year though. Probably the best Daylyt performance I've seen.. but that might be because it's the easiest for me to digest.

And as long as KotD and UW aren't developming great talent on their own (KotD is better in this regard), we won't see the competition that the game is missing.

2010 and 2012 are on par, but I'd edge it to 2012. In 2012 we saw the explosion of the PGs, KotD's greatest progress, a diversification of styles, bigger sponsorships, as well as a weaning off of the GrindTime nerd era. Competition soared as Lux and Chilla changed the game and we saw most of these guys' best and most lyrical performances. Granted, Mook also sort of fucked up the game in 2012 by making it all about the money, but still.

Either way I'm really excited about battle rap in the future. It's chugging along well. Just needs more good cards and matches to be made. The one great thing about battle rap is that even if you lose, get bodied even you can come back and help make some awesome battles. It's not like boxing when you take an L and you're done.

Heres to 2014.

Man I have to disagree with the labeling of GrindTime as the "Nerd Era" when GT was responsible for the major resurgence of Battle Rap and brought dudes to the table like Conceited, Illmac, Thesaurus, Hollow, Marvwon, and they gave dudes like Fresco, Soul Khan, Real Deal, Ness Lee, and Dizaster a chance to shine. Hollow being the biggest boon since Smack would've never gave him the slighest chance coming off his absolutely terrible showing at the second WRCs. It's also worth noting that without GT (Lush One specifically to be honest) there would've been no blueprint for KOTD or Don't Flop to follow so we'd have never seen dudes like Pat Stay, Shotty Horroh, or Hollohan either.

I mean I get that you're not into a lot of the styles that came out of GT at the time but really, GT was not only the only organization out there bringing Battle Rap back in a large way but they gave everybody a chance to make their mark. Can't help to respect that.

Nah, Hollow took that 3 to 0, that's a kill in my book. He pretty much broke down everything Lux was going to throw at him. Lux had nice shots but in the end their impact was lessened quite a bit by Hollow. Lux's entire offense was crushed.

It's like Mighty Ducks 3 (I think) when they went into Flying V formation and the other team did the V crusher. Flying V is still a dope formation, but against what it went up against? Worthless.

Lux's bars were dope as fuck, stop it. Did his personals land, no. But just based off the sheer bars he put together you can't say he got killed. His 3rd round is probably one of the best he's ever had in his career. I think Hollow had everything else above Lux, but based on pure Lyricism Lux was better in every round. I don't have a problem with people scoring Hollow 3-0 or whatever but 2-1 either way makes more sense to me. Hollow also had more filler than you're willing to acknowledge, I think.

You need to read again and stop being so defense bruh. I said that Lux came with it never took that away from him. But Hollow made it all irrelevant. His double entendres were cute and all, but we aren't scoring an album here my dude. It's a rap battle and at the end of the day Hollow's ability to take Lux's entire offense and make it irrelevant and throw it back in his face counts for more than "oh man that was a hot line!".

And really mentioning fillers without talking about Lux? Word? Wooord?

I agree with you that Hollow won. How are you saying that Hollow made it irrelevant? That makes no sense. You don't make someone's punches and the intricate bars they wrote not matter just cause your personals and performance are amazing. otherwise guys like JC and Chilla and B-Magic would 'lose' everytime against dudes like Clips, Ill Will, etc.

URL taking NOME 4 suggestions. I think Goodz vs. Aye Verb is locked in (don't care much for that TBH). I put what I thought into the comments anyways even though it's unrealistic.

Charlie Clips vs Hollow Da Don
B Magic vs Conceited
Ill Will vs Danny Myers
Real Deal or Charron vs Yung Ill or Tech 9
Dizaster vs. Hitman Holla

Not all of GrindTime was the nerd era. It's well known what GrindTime has done for the game and the talent they have developed across pretty much all of America when Smack left; the nerd era was when the different parts of the organization started splintering and falling apart, and when you started seeing those nerd styles pretty much bubble to the top, trying to get everyone and their technical support to rap, and that's what gave GrindTime that reputation and what contributed to their fall from grace. Most of these same nerd rappers from the late GT days are trying their luck in KotD now. 2012 was when that transition was sort of made and Drect called it in IMO.

And the reason Chilla and B-Magic in particular don't lose everytime is the same reason why vast majority of people are giving the W to Hollow. He took Lux's entire battle plan, angle and gimmick and threw it back in Lux's face ontop of adding his own bars that Lux did not rebuttal (this is key). Lux for the most part ignored Hollow's rebuttals and stuck with his script, and again I state Lux was nice as fuck but Hollow just came with it.

Now had Hollow just break down Lux's angle and gimmick but not sprinkle his own stuff into it then yea Lux would have won.

Again, Mighty Ducks analogy.

Charlie Clips vs Hollow Da Don sounds like it could be interesting...

Lux vs Hollow = Lux 2-1
Lux took that 3rd round. That shit hit so hard. I'm good either way anyone calls it because Hollow was great. Hope they do it again, but I doubt Hollow will be able to handle Lux in a rematch.

Yep. I also want to see Daylyt vs. Lux. I think Daylyt is the only guy besides Hollow who can give Lux that work. Hard to attack a guy like that with any angles. What are you gonna say? He's a weirdo? He's "gay"?

He embraces all of it.
