He does that a lot though. Watch his battle with Dirtbag Dan and he actually does an entire round freestyled there too.

the beginning is either freestyle OR him trying to seem like he is. the end of it is clearly written

u can be the best freestyler in the world
u can never flow an entire freestyle round the same as a written one

a "polished" freestyle is not the same as a polished written

djpompey is not the worst person
When this first came out I wanted to believe that they were both just that good (being scribble jam vets) and it was totally spontaneous. A while later I heard from a respected source that they had swapped some lines and later admitted it on the dl.

Watching it again with my blinders off it was obvious. If you write and freestyle it's pretty clear that "head is mishapen", "post traumatic stress disorder", and the bodybag zipper line for instance were exchanged in advance. I don't blame them - it was at a day's notice and they wanted to put on a show. Very watchable to this day.

i could believe thesaurus sayin "im gonna talk about your head being mishapen"

but i could also believe the sheer amount of actual freestyle battles they've been in makes it that much easier.

the speed difference to come up with shit between a scribble jam/tourettes battle and a freestyle in this format is like goin from hitting 99mph to crushin a softball.

This! Also TheSaurus plays poker for a living. He's bluffing if he tells you that shit was real. That being said it was still a good battle.

Mac had like, a ton of freestyle rebuttles against Dirtbag Dan and nobody cried fowl. Its not hard to believe Thesaurus knew he had to be on point in that regard going into this.

Conspiracy theorists are forever the weridest people

No. A few reasons.

First - compare what Mac is saying to what the saurus is saying. Mac makes no sense. The saurus does.

Second - Watch battles of the saurus in his freestyle prime. He does this type of thing regularly.

djpompey is not the worst person
Back when I thought it was all spontaneous, my justification for the following was that Mac already had this scheme laying around and cleverly added the first line on the fly to turn it into a flip.

"It's funny he said my head is misshapen
Pete... you look like your face was severed and shaken
Thrown in a skillet with lettuce and bacon
Taken to hell scorching meadows and basins
Fed to some snakes... then molested by Satan
Then your face was stepped on and shaved by the weapons of Jason
Left in the rain til the Leprosy sank in
Left to be eaten by featherless penguins
And griiiiiiiinded through a paper shredder by eight men
It was so fun for them, such a special occasion
that they took your face and wrapped it with seven grenades then detonate them
Stitch you back together with metal and plates and pieces of flesh, pleather and raisins
They removed the medical tape... then holy shit, you look better, okay then"

It's ... possible, but I'm going with Occam's Razor.

It's strange how now a rebuttal is kind of spinning some bodies lines/idea on them, whereas back then it was literally just stealing their rhyme scheme and seeing how many words you can rhyme with it.. I never noticed that until watching this battle

I don't think this battle was collaborated tbh. sounds unlikely but it's possible that "head's mishapen" just randomly fit with Mac's (written) string of multis that he started with.
