RBL Season 2 Week 2: thatguy vs King John

@thatguy

All you had to do was show up for our 2 on 2. I won a tourney with mic s as a teammate...
But you couldn't hold a flame to him... and my guess is he freebase
But now you caught on the wrong side, and john I aint lookin to play
I'm john travolta at the oscars - known for butchering names

Your girl the butt of a joke, but she can catch the butt of a pistol
and end up carved in the trunk but it aint lover's initials
Your whole fam can get the blade - Im on a killin spree
They all cried out the same - sounded like the wilhelm scream

Real talk.. the 'lips on shirts' shit you said was grimey and cold; we
saw so much potential, so why's his stock rising so slowly?
It's cause the culture's kept growin, no suprise he got moldy
We should have seen the signs before the fall like Wile. E. Coyote


@King John

I'm the underdog? That's crazy, anybody thinking I'll lose is abSurd Nigga
This "Duck, Duck, Goose" I'm bout to run circles around this Bird Nigga
Just copped a DE, so show up on my block acting like you Got No Worries
And that "new Eagle will have ya running back outta of Texas" like Demarco Murray
Nigga ya girl love me, calls me on the daily to come sex until I'm busting On Both Breasts
But you? Ugly, that's why his girl makes "Guy fuck(Fawkes) with a mask on" like an Anonymous Protest
When that pump blaze ya, it'll front page ya, have ya on the news with ya top gone like an Open Bottle
It'll be a "huge story all over one ring" like a Tolkien Novel
I stay strapped, so when I show up to your block and start Waving 380s
You won't make it past the first round like Tracy McGrady
So if he play me for that sweet type, saying it's All Dandy
I'll leave this " Canadian Bacon (Bakin')" for thinking that John Candy

Pretty dope battle from both sides. Both of y'all had punches that hit hard, I felt like lover's initials was easily the best of the battle. Towards the middle of King John's verse it got stretched a bit and I didn't feel the extra words were worth the punches that came out of them. Beginning and end of his verse were both on point.

thatguy's verse was a bit cleaner and edged out the harder punches for me. thatguy gets my vote in a great battle off the strength of his punches being a bit stronger and his flow being more consistent.

Thatguy seemed just a bit more polished to me in this one, both were solid though, it just seemed like thatguy's analogies were a bit more on point and visual.

Thatguy
Felt like you wasted a little to many bars with the slow setups
Like your closer was good but if you could of fit it in to 2 instead of 4 just to throw more punches id of edged it to you

The butchering names shit was dope i didnt really like the middle 4 but the closer was nice

I thought King john landed more shit with the tolkien line and the duck duck goose but as a rockets fan that t mac line hurts my soul


Edge to KJ

I though Thatguy went absolutely ham here. That lover's initials bar was line of the week, and the Wile. E, Willhelm scream, and John Travolta bars were excellent too.

King John had some bars too; the Tolkein, John Candy, Anonymous protest and duck duck goose bars were slick, but neither the flow or the bars themselves were as clean as Thatguys.

Really good battle, voting Thatguy.

Favorite battle of the week so far. Demarco murray line was dope. But 'that guys' first 8 was enough to win

Thatguys opener was a little drawn out but the travolta punch was filthy as fuck and worth the wait. Lovers initials shit was bonkers, wilhelm scream was ok and that wile e coyote closer was fire. Real dope verse.

Kj started a bit slow, the duck duck goose thing didn't work for me, I find the term bird real hard to comprehend as a solid diss. Dermarco murray bar was decent, anonymous protest was nice, like the pump blaze/front page inner rhyme and the tolkien punch was solid. Tracy mcrady sounded nice but didn't hit too hard and the john candy bar was ok but not super impactful for a closer.

Over all thatguy just hit harder.

Battle was crazy on both sides- probably the best I've read so far this week. thatguy was firing on all cylinders with his content and flow and King John stepped his punches up after a very strong Week 1 performance. Very little room for error in this battle and I think some so-so opening bars from KJ created just enough room to separate the two verses.

vote: thatguy

shout out to mic s!! travolta line was okay. Next 4 were pretty dope, and the Wilhelm Scream reference was fire. Final 4 were set up well and I like the Wile E. Coyote punch. Marlo referenced the same thing to DBD about fist bumps, but I liked your approach to it.


king john
ahhh, duck duck goose i’ve heard a few times. Running back I didn’t feel that much. I liked that Tolkien novel punch, and the Tracy McGrady was a sports bar I liked. Canadian bacon line was only so so as a closer.

Very slight edge to thatguy.

I wish that 2 on 2 battle happened and we hadn’t wasted some of the punches we had for it.

Thatguy wigged on kj imo.. Yall can act like it was close but it wasnt.
Dont get me wrong kj did his thing.

But i feel like thatguy angle (using personal approach) was dope, in the way he flipped that shit into bars and descibed kj.
He broke kj down.

That moldy bread line....thatguy is a crafty muthafucca

This was a crazy battle. Both guys had verse of the week quality material. I'll start with thatguy... his shit was just fire all the way through. I almost forgot how deadly he can be. There's not really any weak point here. The John Travolta and Wilhelm scream punches were heavy hitters and the lover's initials line was bonkers. I loved the closing four bars too--a great closing punch to cap a fire scheme. 10/10 verse.

King John had some wild shit too though. All of his punches hit for me except the Guy Fawkes wordplay. That was just too much of a stretch. I really liked the duck duck goose bar. That was a fresh take on a concept that's been used a few times. The Demarco Murray line was fire too and I loved that Tolkien novel bar. I don't know how no one's thought of something like that before. I thought the last four were kinda light by comparison though. The "Canadian Bacon" closer was pretty cool, but just didn't have that much impact for me. Still, this was a great verse all the way through.

This was a really close call, but I just liked thatguy's verse slightly more as a whole. He just has a more polished, varied writing style and his punches were just as potent as John's--if not more so. This was such a close battle though. King John probably would've beaten almost anyone else with that verse. This is one of those battles that I almost don't want to vote on just because neither guy really deserves to lose. Thatguy's getting my vote though.

Classic double win...but for voting sake I have that guy for the lover initial line...with both being structurally sound and being packed with punches I have to go to with the verse that contained my favorite of the battle. Vote TG
