Never been a fan, but his freestyle and rebuttal game is easily one of the best. His new thing of calling himself the king is LAME AS FUCK.

He's not the worst, and he'll get top tier opponents until he quits, but he's mid tier as fuck IMO.

Dude puts in his work though. But at the end of the day, if I see him on a new card, I shrug. If I see a battle of his drop on YouTube, I don't watch unless a) I'm a fan of his opponent or b) There is a buzz about how good the battle was.

I'd rate him a 55-60/100.

Not particularly a fan. I thought he was decent enough against A. Ward, and he had a couple solid back and forth freestyle battles on DF. Outside of that though, I don't find him particularly compelling. Also I'm not surprised that I got blocked by him on Twitter after pointing out how weird it was that DNA did a "That was me" bit, even though that's something associated with Illmac (and something that Illmac actually also did against DNA).

he knows how to perform and he seems to consistently show up for what its worth. he's beat ppl better than him but i can't say he's really had any memorable moments for me. he has moments but they won't make it in the battle rap canon.

Everyone's favorite wack emcee, lol.

However guys that turn up high off their head or choke on elementary bars should take note at how far consistently mediocre can get a rapper.

What's he's done with NWX is interesting. He and his group have been pushing the envelope with gassing each other up as of late. He can occasionally bring heat and I enjoy some of his battles. That said, I'd never confuse his lyrics with Loaded Lux

He's actually pretty good in relation to how much he battles

A lot of people we think are amazing would be as bad or worse if they had over 100 battles

The fact that he's made a case for getting better should count for something but that might just be cause of how bad he was before

I genuinely used to hate the dude, but came to realize he's actually on the same terms of Charron as far as being some dude who is awfully corny but very likely on the spectrum with aspergers or moderate autism. As someone who has supported people with intellectual disabilities for the better part of my adult life, I can respect it. Not too many people go out there and pursue their dreams, so I'm glad those dudes did. Also, DNA vs Charron is a batttle 95% of KOTD fans refer to as a classic, that should tell you a lot.

his rebuttals are terrible. he does those half rebuttals that don't even rebut anything the person said, just very very very loosely reference it with the worst setups possible.

if you had a line referencing jay-z he'd be like

ayo i bleep em in the mouth, its funny u mention jay-z but ima beat u without a reasonable doubt

ayo its funny u talk about jay z and think thats real slick? cuz in one second ima take ya dame and dash wth ya chick

ayo ima come thru and blam it, its funny somethin somethin mjy machete spray its funny u mention ayo jay z ayo its funny *metal face pops off to reveal dna is a robot running on windows 95*

dna is a really good performer tho ill give him that. he has the confidence and self belief that only a truly delusional person could flaunt. and for that, i salute him

I put him in the same category as Ars:
doesnt choke
Very hard working
one of the most consistent performers
absolutely insane resume
manages to win a decent % of his battles (albeit ugly asf at times)
actual trash bars
corny asf

You know how someone like Pass or Trex sometimes just raps and barely spits any amazing bars, and its still great to listen to? DNA is the opposite of that. Even when he has decent bars and "wins" a battle, its just not entertaining to watch. His setups and his awkward, bars by numbers approach is grating. He doesnt have great stage presence or anything either, just experience and as someone pointed out a consistency about him that keep it going.

pass has a lot of really solid wordplay that is structured together very tightly. much, much better than dna.

as a general rule nah

I realize about the hilarious Hollow shit and that he did have a lil chokin run before retirement but that was all relatively recent; for the mass majority of his gazillion battles, he flawlessly delivered mediocrity

i liked dna early freestyles vs hollow in front of pizza shop

i liked some of his material vs diz

i think he had a good round or two vs Dan

he over saturated himself to hell though. if dna drops i dont really care at all and probably wont watch unless its vs something i like

i think hes a bit like ars like others said because they're both here for a pay check but ars is better by tenfold
