One thing Grind Time battlers did better than battlers now days....

They ended their rounds strong.



In GT it was almost all about who had the craziest end to each round (mainly the 3rd).

Now days its kind of based on just an overall bar count, and a lot of people just kind of trail off at the end, and still win.

Compared to a random mash up of the craziest bars you can think of, GT rounds (although maybe weak lyrically by today's standards) were usually structured in a more conceptual manor. Often times with an end goal.

Good examples of some what recent GT style structured round with an emphasis on the ending was:

Math's 3rd vs Diz

Verb's 3rd vs Hitman

What do you guys think??? are people now days too focused on individual lines than the bigger picture???

I can definitely say I'm guilty of this. As writing has evolved past GrindTime's hilarious ways to call men faggots into a more loosely thematic, intricate structure, it's more about the material than anything now. That performance value is still needed, but most battle fans are working with boxing rules now. 10-9's and shit.

Rarely, a 3rd round can bring "that feeling" back and win you an entire battle (ex. Swave Sevah vs. Danny Meyers", but now? It's usually a 2-1 outcome now, rarely any bodies, and rarely do rounds end in a haymaker. It's mostly slogans, and Mike is right, folks just trail off to end a round. I almost want to call that choking to an extent.

Been saying for awhile that slogans have allowed battlers to avoid having to demonstrate the ability to close a round well.

the last impression is the strongest

remember how nocan lost to dirtbag cause everything used to go to overtime and he hadn't prepared a fourth? ya


when you shave your face you look like will ferrel
im not in any real peril
my favorite position to fuck your girlfriend in is wheelbarrow
it makes her pussy get real narrow
and she starts actin retarded like lil darryl

we had fun while it lasted but i feel bad for her tho,
I gave her split ends pullin her pony tail and slappin her on the back of the skull
you were with her, and only saw her with half of her clothes
cause i left hickies on her titties darker thana rare african crows
ooh baby i like it raw i was barebackin the hoe
had her waving her arms in the air like air traffic control

also that verse starts with
"the balls in my court like you rolled into my cul de sac" lol

Because he had to do the "Aye Verb vs ----- see what the Fuss is about, they say my name - send that bread, I come put blood in they mouth". He's got to hand out the verbal...fat-lips.

So true.

Last night I tried to watch Twerk vs Glueezy. When the battle started the YT player showed 41 minutes remaining. That's almost 7 minute rounds. You never know when someone's round is going to end!

The short battle rounds have a sort of build-up, and you can expect that there is a closer. With 2-2.5 minute rounds it's possible.

Yeah most of these new PG guys are just bar stacking, they have no structure, build up, or end point to prove.

I had to cut that one off early too.

For real, most of the big GT moments were the end of rounds.

Shit could still be lit without an amazing closer

Kinda how every episode of ur favorite Tv show doesn't have to end with some crazy plot twist or cliffhanger. Just something coming to a natural ending.
