No Coast Title Match: XQZ vs. Pompey

So we decided to do title matches again. Some real nice material back and forth with the appropriate amount of patented No Coast weirdness. Clearly what the game needs.


Enjoy!

That's sort of what we were going for. With a dash of Ice vs Tech 9 for some reason.

Third most important solo title in battle rap!

Both these guys are great writers. Loving the signature No Coast awkwardness. I got Pompey taking it. I thought he had the momentum in the third. I'd like to see these guys get a lil more comfortable with their delivery and possibly battle in other leagues. The smart move is to give Diggy the next title shot!

I got Pompey edging it. X, definitely did his thing tho and had way more delivery then I've ever seen from him. heres a little behind the scenes info. Pompey had a whole 24 bars he didn't get out that he wanted too in the third.

Glad everybody's responding positively to this. It was amazing live!

Can we get a poll???


There's been a lot of controversy about the winner.

Thanks! Grats to XQZ; I think the decision was fair as I didn't do quite what I needed to as the underdog. Best reactions I've ever gotten live, though - we both improved in ways we'll be able to carry forward. (Can not believe he finally stopped touching his nose)

X and I both had pretty entertaining battles with Diggy (unjudged, we won them by consensus) - but I wouldn't rule him out as a contender since he's a crowd favorite. I even told one of the openers I was battling the champ and they asked, "him?" pointing to Diggy. Kelly is contemplating hosting a mini grand-prix tourney to determine the next contender, which could be really cool.

EDIT: Might as well give you the links:

without being too harsh my main issue with pompeys attack was calling out xqz for his style a lot- the disses were funny but the entire time I was just thinking how pompeys style was just a worse, or less finessed version of xqz's

Z was a little inconsistent but had a few lines each round that were top tier penmanship, I wish I commented when I watched last night so I could give quotes but hey at least I remembered to come back and comment on the thread

Real good battle!

XQZ is a terrific writer (reminds me of Everybody Knows when he gets into it, which is a huge compliment), but I think he fumbled a little too much here, while Pompey performed great, wrote great (for the most part) and had some lethal flips too.

Can't be mad at the decision though, close one either way. Diggy or Isaac for the next shot IMO.

I have it to XQZ. Just my preference , the third was pretty telling though I mean it was close enough going into that 3rd but he took over the place in that round. Probably the most comfortable both have looked in a battle. Cool battle and footage, the crowd once again was reacting to some weird stuff but the style of battling is just different there so it's not like they are inconsistent.

Real close battle. Might have gave it to Pompey 2-1 based on the slip. Overall, a good watch.

A No Coast title lol.
Is that really something one would want to hold let alone defend?

Good luck man, I wish you guys success. So is Minnesota an official No Coast territory now? Are you guys just doin this for fun or do you have some plans to really blow up? The illest vibe you guys had was during that event with Diggy vs Michael White IMO.

Thanks for that. We will be throwing events in Minneapolis regularly, its a scene similar to ours with a deeper talent pool. Idk about blowing up, especially with what battlers get paid these days. We're just having some fun.
