Tay Roc's got some great second rounds tbf, may be the king of the second rd

2nd vs O-Red
2nd vs QP
2nd vs Calicoe
2nd vs Surf
2nd vs Clips
2nd vs Hollow
2nd vs K Shine

Not sure if they're better the ones which you mentioned but he's had some fire rounds. He's doing the best he can with what he's got, I fuck wit roc.

Hollow's 1st vs Clips was IMMENSE
I get that Roc has gained popularity in the last 3 or 4 years, he's a hard worker who always shows up with 3 rounds and no chokes or stumbles. That said, it seems like most of the praise fans have regarding why Roc should be on the Mt. Rushmore of battle rap basically sound like the bare minimum requirements for what makes a competent battle rapper, regarding him always showing up with 3 rounds. Outside of him being prepared, compared to a lot of the other Mt. Rushmore candidates, he has a really unremarkable skill set, and not that many battles that make for a good argument for why he should earn that spot (like Verb and Hollow have a bunch of battles where you can make the argument for them being on the Mt. Rushmore, while outside of the Clips rematch and Will, I have a hard time thinking of any other signature Roc battles).

I saw brodeezy say that Roc has taken over Hitman's spot as being the performance king, but I've never seen Hitman be completely drained of energy in the last round of a battle like I've seen Roc be against people like Calicoe or Hollow (and against Calicoe, it was really noticeable that Roc was struggling to maintain having energy during his last round). If we were to compare battle rap to like mainstream rap music, to me guys like Verb or Hollow or Ars would be equivalent to how guys like Drake or Kendrick or Cole are held in high regard by mainstream rap fans, while someone trying to say Roc is in that same convo is like how I'd perceive someone saying that G-Eazy or Russ belongs in the convo with Drake, Kendrick or Cole (yes they have solid fundamentals, but are just average by comparison).

If the other top-tiers of URL circa 2012 hadn't either priced themselves out of being consistently booked or not cared in so many battles, I think Roc would still be battling the 2017 equivalent of a Rich Dolarz on a BL or Ascension card.
