I'm going with C here. You're right, Verb does this and is good example. However, when I first read 'creating momentum with flow'. I thought Illmac because that is what he did on the last battle that I watched.. him vs Chilla (1st round)

I think B is the least important, honestly. When I think battle rap, I think words are weapons. You want to humiliate your opponent in a slam poetry type setting. That's why I prefer personals over generic (even if clever as fuck) bars will always stand the test of time.

This is why people still watch Pat vs. Marv, Pat vs. Hollohan, Caustic vs. Jefferson, Saurus vs. Illmac, etc - it's not because of bars, it's because they're really attacking eachother.

I dare say Tsu Surf vs Big T is my all time favorite rap battle (top 3 for SURE). But there are no hard hitting personals, which I think may nowadays be tacky, but vamp up the level of personal / emotional attack and lyricism.

*shrugs* I love good battles, but if Rum Nitty of B Magic can make the same generic gun bars against ANYBODY does it really feel authentic to you?

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Rum and Magic.

Anyways, if you've never seen Rajon vs. Terrence please watch the battle and then politely delete your profile. ��
