RBL Season 2 Week 4: thatguy (2-0) vs. V.Free (1-1)

@thatguy

One debatable win under your belt, now you thinkin you a star? cool..
Stay in your lane 'less you got a couple bodies - that's a carpool
But if he jumpin out his lane like his vehicle swerved, I'll get real disturbed
So knees (Sony's) gettin hacked; North korea returned
Thata kill his (achilles) chance of runnin, I bet he'll (heal) get hurt
You can't run that fast with your 'calves slashed' - v'll (veal) get served

You still think this 'lookin good' for you? here's where you get done ugly
This Nelson Muntz to Milhouse. Roger Klotz to Doug Funnie
That's bully shit, bout to find his ride and start takin lunch money
Soon as I spot the whip you're gettin hit, but we aren't playin punchbuggy
I just make it look easy. I wrote my part in a minute, bro
But if it's V-necks (next)... watch him try harder than hipster clothes


@V.Free

Mafia ties .. mob henchman I call in if I want a body gone missin
so talk shit & your fin'a pop up in the ocean like sharks swimming
Get shot down thinkin he 'round fakes no bruises, son - im not using crowbars
no.. get shot down thinkin my rounds fake like Bruces son - im not using Crow, bars
I hope hes bulletproof or my bullets proof when he ends up dead from a shell
show yall his frame rocked if I make it Bust.. so dont get a-head of yourself
Im callin shots with a bosses motives - he call-in shots, its a cop hes phoning
a fag on the low, ask riffic, itll blow his cover quick as a tornado in Barnes & Nobles
Monotone flow even in his fuckin audio votes, imagine the effect we add beats
so if hes in a club handling-business? no sets for the cash, hes a professional caddie
why they kiss your ass is a mystery cos if you spit a track they wouldnt listen; facts
just cos your disc is unidentified doesnt mean your out of the world with this craft

Dope battle fellas, I thought thatguy took it convincinly... V.free verse was cool but it wasn't
On the same level as thatguy.
Thatguy verse was cleaner and his punches hit harder.

The shark swimming bar was the bar of the battle, and this battle was battle of the week.

One of the toughest ones to call here. The toughest one yet for me. I've read it 4 times, I went through and graded each verse out of a total of 24 points. Both ended up getting the same number. Flow goes to thatguy, I'm edging to V. Free on bars, and I guess I'll go V. Free with the vote on the power of the sharks swimming line.

Crow bars ftw, V.Free was a lot more smooth in this one, the shit flowed well. Thatguy usually gives in a good performance but this week I wasn't feeling much of the verse at all. Liked the Doug Funny reference but it seems like there weren't many punches thrown here and the ones that were in were just off. Hoping V.Free doesn't get jerked this week lol.

You know, I've read this one several times already but I can already tell that I'll need several more. I'll edit in a breakdown eventually. Battle of the week for sure.

Grrr, thought I had it to V Free but idk, thatguy had barss.

Will come back to it (that's like my 3rd read through already ffs)


Edit: Im giving it to thatguy on 5th read through. Nothing in it really, I thought both were pretty much evenly matched barwise, but I guess thatguys just flowed better. Both had one or two slightly weaker lines - but only relative to the rest of the verses (achilles heel/crow bars) but I think u guys probs had the best battle of the week and good shit from both!

But if he jumpin out his lane like his vehicle swerved, I'll get real disturbed
So knees (Sony's) gettin hacked; North korea returned

this was all well written but i was kinda thinking where is this going
You can't run that fast with your 'calves slashed' - v'll (veal) get served
then boom! calves slashed, v'll......fuck off! bonkers
You still think this 'lookin good' for you? here's where you get done ugly
This Nelson Muntz to Milhouse. Roger Klotz to Doug Funnie
nice enough
That's bully shit, bout to find his ride and start takin lunch money
Soon as I spot the whip you're gettin hit, but we aren't playin punchbuggy
solid
I just make it look easy. I wrote my part in a minute, bro
But if it's V-necks (next)... watch him try harder than hipster clothes
ok

@V.Free

Mafia ties .. mob henchman I call in if I want a body gone missin
so talk shit & your fin'a pop up in the ocean like sharks swimming
ok
Get shot down thinkin he 'round fakes no bruises, son - im not using crowbars
no.. get shot down thinkin my rounds fake like Bruces son - im not using Crow, bars
not feeling this both sentences didnt really read well and the crow/fake round shit is played out
I hope hes bulletproof or my bullets proof when he ends up dead from a shell
show yall his frame rocked if I make it Bust.. so dont get a-head of yourself
nice
Im callin shots with a bosses motives - he call-in shots, its a cop hes phoning
a fag on the low, ask riffic, itll blow his cover quick as a tornado in Barnes & Nobles
lol not sure if i like this line or im laughing at it but still pretty funny
Monotone flow even in his fuckin audio votes, imagine the effect we add beats
so if hes in a club handling-business? no sets for the cash, hes a professional caddie
good idea but again feel its worded a bit weird
why they kiss your ass is a mystery cos if you spit a track they wouldnt listen; facts
just cos your disc is unidentified doesnt mean your out of the world with this craft
decent





all in all thatguy was just too much, the first 6 is maybe my favorite bars from the season this far, and everything else there after was solid too. v was mostly nice buit had a few things i wasnt really fucking with.

thatguy's first six bars were expensive and the punchbuggy line was nice too. V's opener and closer were pretty good. Some of the other lines read weird to me. They were either worded poorly or didn't rhyme that well (cop he's phoning - Barnes and Nobles).

Both were nice, but one verse just stood out as cleaner to me.

Vote: thatguy

def hard to call here, gonna give the slightest edge to thatguy, felt his best bars were better than v's best bars, but definitely the hardest battle to judge.

Thatguy's verse was one of 2 halfs; the first was madness, the second was just good. It's not a verse I can really fault at all (are V-necks hipstery? is the best I've got).

V-Free was off to a great start with the shark bar. The Crow bar was a nice concept, but I feel like it would have been better as just a straight up bar rather than a slow it down, which made it read a bit awkwardly. The rest of the verse was GOOD. One thing I'd say is that while you got multis and all, your lines are too long not to have internals, otherwise they read a bit stretched out.

This battle is pretty close, V is real nice, but I've got Thatguy taking this, mostly on the strength of the first half of his verse.

I've had to read this one 4-5 times to come up with a winner--it's that close. This wasn't thatguy in top form, but he always has some crazy bars--even if he was up-and-down here. I loved the carpool opener. That was bar of the battle to me, right off the bat. After that, I didn't really like the little scheme about slashing his legs. It wasn't terrible or anything and the veal bar on it's own was pretty cool, but the scheme as a whole just didn't come together very well for me. Then, it took a little while to get to the punchbuggy line, but that was another haymaker. The gawd E. Farrell had a similar bar in the past, but this one still worked--although that shit's called "slug bug" where I'm from, so I had no idea what punchbuggy was until Farrell blessed us with his genius. And the closer was alright. The concept was kinda funny, but the next/necks wordplay doesn't do much for me.

V. Free probably had fewer dry spots than thatguy, but his high points didn't quite match thatguy's best punches. The opener was cool, but Ty LAW did the finna/fin'a wordplay better with his "ya finna (fin'a) get stuck up like Jaws in the water" line and I've used the finna/fin'a wordplay at least once, so the novelty just isn't there for me. I'm not saying V. Free bit Ty Law (and I'm definitely not saying he bit me), but my first reaction was just that I'd seen it before--even if this version was dope in its own right. The next two bars didn't do much for me, but the bust double meaning was crazy. I can't believe no one's used that before. That was fire. The Barnes and Noble line with the "blow his cover" double meaning was cool too, but the scenario was just too outlandish to do a lot for me. And the closing four were probably V. Free's lightest of the battle. Lines like this might hit against someone like Dank who we know makes music, but thatguy doesn't as far as I know and the punches themselves weren't anything wild, so it wasn't the strongest finish.

I ended up edging this to thatguy. I went back and forth with my decision a couple times, but I just thought thatguy's best outclassed the best we saw from V. Free.

@thatguy
i thought this was a real solid verse. as much as everyone loved the “v’ll get served” segment, it didn’t really connect with me because you were basically talking about hacking up the guy’s leg. it’s just a very odd threat. it reminds me of when people talk about shooting their opponent in the shin.

other than that everything else hit. the carpool opener was awesome and the doug funny scheme worked really well.

standout bar:
That's bully shit, bout to find his ride and start takin lunch money
Soon as I spot the whip you're gettin hit, but we aren't playin punch buggy

@V.Free
heard you were good… agree that you’re good. i can definitely tell you know how to write with rhythm accounted for, which puts you above a lot of text battlers automatically.

that said, there were some references/concepts i didn’t get or wasn’t feeling (“Crow, bars” and a tornado in a book store). the caddie bar took me a second to understand but once it clicked it was dope.

thought dissing him for music he doesn’t make was kind of eh.

standout bar:
Mafia ties .. mob henchman I call in if I want a body gone missin
so talk shit & your fin'a pop up in the ocean like sharks swimming

giving this to @thatguy; more lines landed for me. real good battle.

I liked VF's slow it down. Freshest line in the whole battle.

thatguy came way too light for me to really give him the win here.
