Here's my reasoning for why I had Verb winning the battle 2-1, in the 1st and 2nd rounds, while Twork took the 3rd.

Round 1: I thought Twork had some OK material like the "Maxwell/hit Pretty Wings" bar, the sleep paralysis bar, and then it seemed like he was going to go into something creative with the "Showtime/break a leg" bar, but then he abruptly ended the round early. Meanwhile, I thought Verb took the round, not just because he had a full 1st round, but because of stuff like the "simmer sound" segment, the "squares moves around/Rubik's Cube" bar, "Slappin' 5 like Makidada," the flip of Twork's slogan, and the whole segment with the Gambit bar. Pretty solid 1st from Verb IMO.

Round 2: Twork picked some steam back up after choking in the 1st. I liked the Wiffle ball bar, the drinking gourd bar was cool, the St. Lunatics closer was solid; but outside of that, I thought Twork had too many moments of either bad wordplay (e.g.: the "malfunction/mouth function" bar, the ukuleles bar, etc.) weirdly worded setups (e.g.: the "Season two/sequel" part), or odd references for my liking (I see that Avril Lavigne did a cover of "Knockin' On Heaven's Doors," but that song's mostly associated with either Bob Dylan or Guns N' Roses). Meanwhile, I thought Verb low-key snapped in this round in a sort of Ness Lee or B-Magic way, where his delivery sounded effortless as he was rattling off some creative material. "You don't earn stripes if you don't urn somethin'" stood out to me in a segment with a few other quotable lines, I liked the Mr. McDowell bar, "I will crack your skull open, take your scariest thoughts and make children's movies out 'em" to me was the best bar from Verb, "He just a loud punch liner, a word stretcher, I commend your superb effort // But you know how many rappers with that same style I got sittin' on Verb's stretchers?" was slick, and then I liked the pebble pusher closer, that was cold. So I got Verb up 2-0 by this point.

Round 3: This was Twork's best round IMO. The chain of events bar was solid, I liked the propaganda bar, as well as the "Think outside the box, he open minded" bar. I'd say his best bar of the round was the "It ain't gon' be that though, BOW, yes it is" segment, and he ended the round strong with the hoodie down bar (although I thought the "Corn talkin'/Veggie Tale" bar before the "Strapped In" wasn't good). Verb had a nice little segment with that "I get it, you impersonate and then perpetrate // All the rappers you like, put they styles in a pot, copy/rehearse and paste" segment, and it seemed like he was going to have something solid with the purse snatching angle, but it didn't lead to anything with a payoff IMO, and then the end of his round kinda fizzled out. So I gave Twork the 3rd, but ended up giving Verb the 1st and 2nd in a battle that I can understand why it was a highlight from SMACK Vol. 2.

DonnieDarko1023 is not the worst person
I was thinking Verb was up 2-0 but it’s almost like Twork made the whole battle debatable in the 3rd......I’m confused

The "ukuleles," "permanente" and "malfunctions" bars are a hat trick of some of the worst wordplay I've heard in a single year.

Remembering thinking the same. The round was just spat enthusiastically and was kind of long.

Verb got this battle comfortably!!
