I don't think Rone gets the respect he deserves

I'm not his biggest fan, but his resume is really good. He has literally beaten all the west coast kotd battlers (the possible exception being a debateable with thesaurus). He borderline bodied his opponent in his two title matches (tho him bodying caustic you could see coming from a mile away). He beat fresco who is everyone's fave at the moment, and at least has one or two moments in every battle that are genuinely entertaining. His only real loss is against goodz. He just shows up, every time, and wins (usually with an entertaining performance).

Don't get me wrong. I'm rooting for ice and do expect him to win, but it does perturb me how little he's mentioned as one of kotd's best.

Except for Fresco being everyone's favorite (he had like one great performance, lol), I agree with this. Regardless of what you think of Rone, he has a formula that works and wins battles.

Rone is a great all around battler but the Goodz loss showed that there's still some space between him and the top tiers in the game.

I'll have to watch it back, but I remember thinking fresco's third was all types of cringe. "Haha you might been sexually abused by a child predator as a kid!!"

I agree. I can see why people give it to Goodz but I feel there's a shit ton of bias involved in just handing him the win.

Rone clearly beat thesaurus too.

I do think Rone is one of the most "decorated" and most polished KOTD battlers. People always want to give him credit for his performance but I also think he's one of hell of a writer. He knows how to pick good angles and is great at executing them.

This is exactly why I have him over Ice.

Rone is cool, but Fresco clearly beat him. By a long way imo. That battle didn't feel close, I think Rone misjudged his angles (like Caustic did vs him.... twice)

The Goodz battle made him look a little try-hard, and it's hard to win when you look over-invested.

He is def one of the better kotd battlers, but he isn't the first name that comes to mind for top tiers. He should battle Diz, I think his style could work really well there.

StankDaddy probably likes in here/hair word play
He didn't come close to beating Fresco. Otherwise, i agree with the body of the OP but it hink he gets his due.

Edit after reading some replies: Of course he beat Goodz. Thats not even a question.

Rone is a nerd that sucks at rapping and does his best to imitate black culture.

Goodz was the first person to make Rone look bad. Sure he had better lines, but he looked uncomfortable and didn't have a good approach. I'm worried it'll be the same against ICE

Yea i like Rone a lot but he def lost to Fresco. his writing was pretty light in that battle and his performance was pretty off. I think he later said he was super hungover when he battled Fresco. The crowd fucking sucked that event. And i have Goodz winning their battle. Rone wasn't bad but should have approached it differently. Weird match. The one-round factor prolly hurt Rone because he usually builds momentum throughout 3 rounds. I'm pretty excited to see how both Rone and Ice approach their battle.

Rone vs Goodz was just a mismatch and it shown. Rone didnt lose but the viewers did.
Fresco didnt beat Rone, that 3rd was terrible reused angles.

I know this may be a bit of a style clash, but I want to see him versus Shotgun Suge
