Battle of da bruvs, innit guv.

Unfortunately a super mediocre battle with a few highlights.

Round 1
Not sure Wop and the N-word are equivalent, Gem. His racist angle was a good one against Soul, but it wore a bit thin towards the end.

Soul kinda chose the wrong approach here. I think maybe the booing gave him too much energy and he was just spazzing out if you weren't listening intently it was easy to miss the bars.

Round 2
Soul needs to learn how Gem is controlling the crowd. He is speaking some wackness (That Scrooge bar, lol) in places, but he is controlling the crowd and making his point clearly. Some good material toward the end with the knife and gun bars.

Soul has calmed down a bit and is doing better. He is emphasizing things and making his point clearly. He is more consistent, but doesn't have the highs of Gemin1.

That said, 'You shoved me' makes everyone look bad, lol.

Round 3
Gemini seems to have a message to get across and I like that better. He is basically breaking down effectively how out of touch Soul is. He needed to tie it all, the bars about privilege and Soul being emo, together a bit better as the ending bar would have destroyed if he'd lined everything up better.

Soul is kinda spazzing, but again without being able to rewind live, I can see a lot of guys missing things. That said, being able to rewind shows that a lot of the time Soul is putting a lot of impact into bars that aren't really hitting hard (A Crash Bandicoot reference... on URL... in 2019?!?). It is almost Pat in Europe levels of build up for nothing.

Overall
Tough one to call, both pretty even in their subparness to me. I'll call it on my favorite bars which come from Gem's second, but could easily see myself changing my opinion on rewatch (Although I probably won't bother rewatching this one any time soon!).

Gemini has some good writing here but it's mixed in with his awful reactions to his own bars and some cringe worthy angles. I thought the angle in his third was the strongest, but almost every thing else was a complete whiff. And the dude needs to stop rapping for 11 minutes. He did the same against Shox, and he ends up with a ton of garbage mixed in. I couldn't sit through his material a second time.

Soul didn't really adjust well for the crowd but I thought he was pretty good.

i like how this battle starts within 60 seconds cause URL knows none of their core audience is watching so why bother with the advertisements.

Soul wasn't as bad as some ppl were claiming. He didn't get bodied either, what a surprise.

That being said Gem has now beaten shox and soul pretty comfortably and in my mind is the best in the UK deservedly.

Let's not try this again.

Wasn't even that bad a battle, 2-1 either way.
