ICE vs Nems just finished. It was a good battle. Nems did better than most rappers that come back. He stayed true to the real talk/grimy disrespect. I'd give it to ICE, but he shouldn't have let it be as close.

Final thoughts:

Over all the event was solid. There were no really bad battles, or performances. Everyone was decent to great. There also was no certified classics in my opinion.

One thing I liked is they kept the event moving, and didn't waste time in between battles. The PPV ended by 11 eastern time which is great, I can remember some KOTD TO events that felt like they went until 3 a.m.

My favorite battle of the night was Real Deal vs Math for sure. I could see a majority of people liking Iron vs Chilla tho. RD and math were both in there bag, and it had that Vet vs Vet actual battle feel. It was also really competitive and they weren't just being friends and having fun dappin each other up every other bar. Chilla/Iron was doing that to much.

I liked Loso a lot in this. Some of those religion battles he does,the content is just too heavy handed for me sometimes, and it was refreshing to see just rap normal. Money Bagz was dope too. I got Loso taking it.

Thesaurus vs E Ness was a great battle too. Thesaurus' second round might be the best round I have heard from him in years. It seemed like from the PPV that people in the back were being loud and messing up this battles third round, which is really shitty because this battle was turning into a classic.

Nems had a good comeback. He did better than most peoples returns. I wouldn't mind seeing him on cards in the future, but his performance didn't make me want to demand that we see him on the next card.

If you didnt catch the event, I hope the updates were helpful. Feel free to ask any specific questions. If you did catch the PPV put down your thoughts of the event.

flex/xcel was good! i thought flex was particularly great. glad to see him do well on the main stage.

loso is bad. bagz is good. alright battle.

ooops/big t was exactly how it sounds on paper.

saurus/ness was fantastic.

chilla/iron was a difficult watch, personally. dragged for way too long. i can't call it.

didn't catch much of math, unfortunately. real deal was okay.

nems and ice had good firsts. the rest was... yeah.

the event underwhelming imo. maybe average, idk. it wasn't bad. few wonky bookings and matchups as expected with KOTD. i like how KOTD took the risk with booking nems. can't go wrong with booking flex and a battle like saurus/ness. the scene in general should reconsider the length of battles and how they affect quality control and watchability throughout 3 rounds. the idea of iron and chilla going for 40 minutes is nuts.

a bit off topic, but it kinda sucks watching KOTD continue to ignore the significance of creating their own identity and make questionable creative and booking decisions.

there are plenty of talent who other leagues will never or, at least, hasn't yet touched. you can see nearly half of mass 4 regularly on other major brands like smack and RBE. give some W/FC vets and new guys a push. give random a shot. fly pigsty out. it's kinda crazy how geechi vs saynt, a bunker battle between two debuting no-names, generated more buzz and views for a rapper than a structured push by KOTD's toronto heads. shoutout shotti p and a ward.

The battles I watched

Flex vs Xcel was real good. Flex was the best I've ever seen him in the last two rounds, or at least it was the best performance alongside a crowd that was awake and listening. Xcel had a great first round & some dope spots here and there but he really has to find a way to be more compelling to listen to. Flex 30 no body

Money Bagz dragged Loso in the first then kind of cruised from there. Really don't understand what anyone sees in Loso. He's one of the worst writers of anybody that's currently being pushed. He's like a sanctimonious DNA.

I was only half paying attention to Ooops and Big T but Ooops had a Big Bang Theory bar so I can't imagine him winning that

E Ness and Saurus was fantastic for all the reasons one would expect. Ness is one of the most fun people to listen to and Saurus is just fuckin amazing at making words rhyme. Don't care who won

Tuned out from there cuz I had to watch the Celtics get bodied

if I was a battler I'd demand to be one of the first three battles to happen. I don't understand weighing arbitrary 'prestige' over battling in front of the hypest and most attentive crowd possible

that's kinda a throwaway thought tho I didn't even see the later battles on the card

Despite you guys saying there were some good matches (cheers for updates btw) looking on Twitter etc. this had the least amount of attention for a major KOTD PPV by some distance, or am I bugginí sun?

Iíve seen numerous respectable in the past talk about the benefits of battling early in an event, because thatís when the crowdís still relatively fresh with their enthusiasm.

Shout out to the dude that left his chick across the street at McDonalds. It seemed like every time I went to the bar there they were. The dude was no bigger that 5 foot 6 and she was at least 4 inches shorter. She had really short hair, flat brimmed hat, and a huge bull ring. They had to take her out on a stretcher. Hate seeing that kind of shit.

Oh ya marvwon was in line at McDonalds too. Got a pic

Was gonna see this live and direct but couldn't swing it. Copped the PPV today, it's worth it if you're curious and especially if you don't know the battles. Really enjoyed it, all battles are quality.

Yeah pretty easy win and couple of hundred thousand views for someone. Banks doesn't even have a really punchy style. He will basically rap his ass off for two straight minutes without landing a single hit on his opponent.

Being the first battle after a break or being one of the first 2/3 battles gets you the most hyped crowd from my experience, being one of the last of the evening is dope but it comes with a more tired crowd
