RBL Season 2 Playoffs Quarterfinals: Throwback Mike vs. riffic

@Throwback Mike


Riffic’s suuucccch a nerd, he majored in creative writing—he ain’t give a fuck that it’s worthless
At least I used my degree against TomB; you should try applyin’ yours in one of your verses

This sucka is nervous, cause it’s basically a forfeit if you’re facin’ this
So when you see that TM won (TM1), it ain’t the corner of McGrady kicks
You stole from Phillip Solo, that’s a no-no—had to warn ‘em he’s a plagiarist
But when it comes to dope lines, you quote mine more than a creationist

This tournament? I’m takin’ it; this mod’s first in the line, but tell Tom: Kurgan is mine
These rounds fuckin’ up the whole field like crop circle designs

I’m on my Deebo shit; if you run, I’ll throw on the Jets like Geno Smith
And have your bros (Broz) splittin’ from the bloc(k) faster than Tito did
So don’t ego trip, or I’ll have you runnin’ for your life like you hit the underground with Harriet
If I’ve got a (gotta) hawk in the streets like the lumpenproletariat

If you've got a gun, you'll wanna carry it, or I'm poppin' your scene
The glock got him more rings than his Boston sports teams
Tell him: stop with your screams! Or you’ll be swimmin’ with the fish when the trigger get ta pullin’
I’ll put a big shell to your head, then you can listen to the ocean


@riffic

Mike climbed the ladder to the top and swore he’d never come down
But your reign evaporated while you had your head in the clouds
Find your bed in the ground, today’ll show you why I was first named the alpha
‘Cause when I put a pound in front of Throwback it won’t be Thursday nostalgia

Never took a match light, I came strapped a flamethower
A chain smoker, your whole pack'll get lit up before the day’s over
So game over, let's see what this domestic cat’s like in the wild
When that gun goes BRRRAT like it was chastising its child

And if Mike’s duck’n the pigs, it isn’t cops he see’s chasin’, it’s flocks that he’s raisin'
The only time he sees Sirens is flippin’ Odyssey pages
And his videos… well, this won’t be the first time he’s dealt with a loss
As soon as that shit was embedded he put himself in a box

See what I mean—a genius with schemes; so what you testin’ me for?
You should prolly bounce, my body count's inchin’ towards my SAT score
Add ‘former’ to that title, champ; he’ll realize he lost this to a legend
When he gets to history tomorrow and he’s the topic of the lesson

Fuuuuck this was dope. Gonna reread it a few more times before voting, I thought Mike killed it when I read his verse and then I got to riffic's verse and he killed it too.

Good closer, fits well with the history/creativing writing angle Mike used. 4/5

30.5

I think Mike wins if this was a 14 bar battle, but his closer was an old concept that I can't really give him any credit for, while riffic's kind of combats the creative writing/history bar Mike used. Both were great throughout, like I said I was edging Mike through 14/16 bars but one bad bar swung it just enough toward riffic by half a point.

Vote=riffic. It can be noted that I face the winner so if anyone wants my vote thrown out it's cool with me.

DJ Profit is not the worst person
Best battle of the night, as far as back and forth. But I think riff out classed TM with his punches and rhyme schemes alone.. Once I got to the "I'm not a light match, I'm a flamethrower/ Chain smoker ur pack will get smoked b4 da days over": It basically over from there.

TM had some funny bars ( in a good way) like the apply ur self shit. and a few good decent punches like the crop circle shit... but they were a lil tooo spaced out wit flat lines and dry spots.

throwback mike
-opener was light pretty light. Not bad, but light.
-tm1 was meh after googling
-does he quote your lines? I like the punch but I was a bit confused at wording. Maybe I'm missing something. Also, funny thing (as an aside), didn't you say you also had that punch in a file somewhere (meddlin' kids)?
-crop circle designs is the first one to really land. Nice.
-lol @ the 4 bars about communism. I'm missing something about the hawk and lumpenproleteriat though
-I now know Boston sports teams are successful!
-the ocean bar is just okay. I like the wording a lot, but the "shell to your head" brings up that debate about whether it's appropriate in punches to say a shell is going to someone, considering what a shell is. I dunno.

Surprisingly light. I kept waiting for a moment where I was gonna jump off my seat and yell "GOD DAMN, MIKE. LEAVE HIM ALONE" but it never came. Your writing is solid and I like the way everything is set up, but just...not crazy enough for me, personally.


riffic
-head in the clouds rain is okay.
-pound in front of throwback is good, but a little light
-"came strapped with a flamethrower" Okay, Danny Myers.
-hahahahaha at chastising its child. So good, so silly.
-I think the "flipping" is a bit weird, but I really like that Odyssey line.
-embedded, box, kind of meh
-Oh you Americans and your SAT score. I like the line
-Nice closer. I liked these 4 bars together a fair amount and it took two okay lines and definitely made them both look a lot better.

Verse read well, but...I mean, it's riffic. It was always going to. Kind of light at points, but there were some definite highs.

vote: riffic. This one surprised me. To be honest, I thought both dudes were going to be a lot better, especially since their first one off is possibly the best text battle of the last 12 months. The pressure might be getting to people or maybe the season has been too long.

first of all @riffic explain to me how you find ones "bed in the ground" is that some kind of euphemism? #sarcasm #noshots

that being said damn tm that mcgrady kicks bar and that opener was dope but not much hit with me after that

just felt like riffic had more lines overall even though not really necessarily working for me either but more original ideas in there liked the throwback thursday bar as an idea just felt it read sorta weird some of the multis I felt the same way

going with riffic though

Man this one was hard a fuck to judge for me.

Mike: I though the opener was great, especially after getting through the whole verse and seeing that you used a biting angle later on. That being said, the example you used for riffic biting was pretty obscure and not really beleivable. I mean I dont even know who that guy is. On the other hand riffic did end up using that TBT # line that sonny also used against you - which, at least to me is much more notable than that solo guy. regardless, the 'creative writing/use your degree and quote mine lines were both very clever.

I though the TM1 bar was pretty good, and the tito and crop circles bars were both very very good. The lumpenproletariat line went over my head even after a brief google. The last 4 bars were both decent, surprisingly fresh takes on 'rings' and 'shells' concepts that I haven't heard before, but your best material I felt was in the first half of the verse.

riffic - I though the reign evaporated line was crazy. great concept/execution there. the TBT line would have been crazy if I hadn't already heard sonny's version - but definitely took away from it unfortunately. chain smoker line was great, but the BRRAT line I found a little cheesy. I definately found a trend in this verse of 1 hit - 1 meh, including the next setup/bar (flock raising -meh, Odyssey - nice)

The put himself in a box and SAT scores I thought were executed about as well as could have been, although I'm not sure I loved the concept of either. The closer was a clever way to encorperate mikes style, and rbl record and really tied the whole verse together well.


First of all - although I might have sounded over critical - even the lines that didn't hit were all like 3/5, 3.5/5 type bars, I thought it was a great battle. Both did a great job of outlining their approach/angles for this battle. TM started strong and finished a little lack luster. Riffic off and on for me throughout. was a very solid verse, but i preferred the one vs seanzo.

After a couple reads now, my first memory of the battle is the openers - which were both great, and then when I think of bars the more memorable moments I thought came from the tito and crop circles bars - so for that reason I am ever so slightly leaning towards mike on this one - but it's dead close.

Mike's opener was simple but clever. The creationist punch was pretty dope. The crop circle and Soviet punches were cool. I guess I'm one of the few that got the lumpenproletariat bar after looking deeper into what "to hawk" means. This was nearly a next level punch, but the set-up/wording just left a tad to be desired for me. The last 4 bars were a little too generic for someone of your caliber.

Riffic's first 4 were cool- nothing special. The chain smoker punch was heavy and the next line was funny- I'm a fan of it. Odyssey punch was cool and the "put himself in a box" cliche was saved by the funny screen shot. Last 4 were like the first 4- not standouts but still solid.

Mike had the higher highs and lower lows. Riffic started out and finished decent with the middle of his verse being very good. Gotta go with the verse with fewer flaws.

Vote: riffic

I thought this was a pretty good battle. Both have completely different styles but are probably my two favorite writers on the site.

Mike, opener felt a little light. Especially since riffic's verses are always extremely well written. I wasn't a big fan of the TM1 wordplay / punch. Felt like it was a pretty simple concept. I really liked the next two. Set up read really well and the punch was really dope. Multis in the crop circle punch were really nice, punch was solid. Flow in the next two was really good. Thought the wordplay in the punch was a tiny bit reachy but it was pretty clever. Shout out for using the longest word in the history of battling - punch was pretty good though. Harriet Tubman set up was meh to me. The final four fell pretty falt for me. Rhyming was nice but the punches just weren't hitting. Ring wordplay is fairly played and the shell/ocean concept has been used a bunch before. Overall I'd say the verse was a little bit light for your standards as there weren't any real haymakers, but it was still very well written with some good punches.

Riffic, I liked the first two. You are really good at turning typically played out wordplay into cool lines just based on how nicely you word them (similar to your par for the course bar a couple weeks ago). The throwback thursday line would have hit more if it hadn't already been used on Mike. Set up was a little bit iffy to me as well. Writing in the next two was on point, good rhymes and flow. Flow kept up real nice and culminated in a solid punch with the brat line. That odyssey line is crazy! Super dope concept. Thought the embedded / box line was meh. Body count inchin towards my SAT score made me laugh quite a bit. Closer was really nice. Dope way to finish of the verse as it wrapped everything up and was directly tied to Mike.


Overall I think Riffic landed with his punches a bit more for me and writing was pretty even so I'll edge to riffic. Really nice battle.
