That's your problem chill out dont start a rap battle by getting mad at a nonshalant post and requesting a fire.(Just so you know you didn't do that but I feel like you would at a moments notice)

It MUST BE BROKEN DOWN. All votes must be backed with a, "Why?" You may break down the rap into each bar and explain it fully.(I'd actually prefer a complete breakdown.)

These are different style, so judge each style differently. Don't try comparing to sides or the votes will lop-side. Whether is be for my side or his.
If the content is shorter I will break it down bar for bar. If there is something I liked about the battle I will highlight the bars and give it mention. Comparisons are good to see strengths and weaknesses, but if you don't want that I will just do a basic breakdown. Considering I do not get paid for this and I have to sift through both textcees material, I really do not think beggars can be choosers. There will obviously be a clash of style cause Chi-town raps using surrealistic imagery while your style is focused on intricate rhyming and punches.

I think you need to develop a thick skin and brush off criticism and naysayers, not nitpick the judging. Judging in itself is subjective because we are still giving opinions on who was better in a battle. Take a judging as an opinion at face value and try to analyze what their points were. I try to eliminate bias from my posts when I do them, but if I see a apparent mistake or something that anybody else would deem "whack." I will call people on it. Most people here don't have that much of a problem with your skill per se. They have more of a problem with how you carry yourself.

This is 8 bars vs. 6. I think there should have been a bar limit, but I am still able to judge.

Multies: SRD (His was more complex)
Flow: Tie (Both flowed really well)
Punches: Chi-town (His vivid style worked well for the catagory.)
Personals: Chi-town (He had 4 personals vs. SRD's 2)
Nameplay: None
Wordplay:SRD (Magic Stick/Stick/ stick em')
Consistency: Chi-town (He carried the same rhyme for 7 bars. It reminded me of PoRich's round 2 against Dizaster.)
Enjoyment: Chi-town (His seemed to just carry a certain conviction. SRD was still entertaining, however Chi-town was more.
Vote: Chi-town

Shout outs to both the MCs. Both had really good drops although to help with judging it would be helpful for Chi-town to present the drop a little bit cleaner. I prefer line drops.

In example:

Abc MAD Hatter
Abc MAD Rapper <-- the lines are easy to see and I can count the bars.

Flow: Both of you guys had flow that was on point. I had fun reading both post out loud.

Punches: Chi-town killed it with the MARIE ANTOINETTE and the Biology Lines. Those were my favorites from him. SRD had a really good bar here:

I got the magic stick so your Lovers I'll just magically stick 'em
Stick YOUR head magically on a pike it gets you all sorts smitten.

You think he is going one direction with the set-up, but then goes another with the punch. I think this one pairs well with Chi-town's Wu-tang biology bar:

Wu tang protect your NECK swords sharper then GILLETTE named biology cuz it always DISSECT but the strap will make you die in a sec

SRD had this one, too.

Watch it blow up in your face like your inflatable girlfriend to friction
Break all your bones at odd angles so you "Walk like an Egyptian"

Here he is referring to Chi-town's head in the previous bar. This one is a little awkward because he is continuing a scheme and he is saying he will break all his bones AFTER his head his gone. I would have put this before not after the magic stick line.

Also there was

I took over control and 'cause the color of my skin adverted all the drama
I'm takin' you down like the United States Government call me Obama

Obama doesn't want to take down the US government. If you would of said "I'm controllin ya life like the US Government call me Obama." that would have been a better punch.

There were some good punches exchanged but Chi-town had more to offer in potency. Not saying that SRD was a bad drop, he should have worked a little bit on the angle. This time proved to have easy to understand punches that were witty.

Chi-town impressive with that whole SET ya need to INSPECT the TEST with how he left the scene WET. If you are going to go all out with a scheme like that, I say carry all the way through. Your 1st bar seemed to not carry the gravity the other 7 had because it was building its momentum after the 2nd bar.

Personals: this was a personal battle. However it was 4 to 2 for Chi-town.

Multis and Wordplay: SRD killed it. He had these two hands down.

My Vote Goes To: Chi-town Chi-town went beyond just dissing. He said if he lose he was willing to leave. That kind of conveys the emotion he was trying to convey. I think emotionally he went "all-in." When you put yourself against the wall, it brings out this fight or die instinct. And with someone of Chi's skill, he only amplifies his conviction when he raps. Even with his 2 awkward punches, SRD was good, but Chi-town was more entertaining. His message of how much he hated SRD resonated with me better than the punches SRD wrote. Sometimes feelings can over take witty punches.

PS: Chi-town wouldn't leave the site over losing to him though. I would just try to continue to out rap him. Cause sometime people who are average can over take great people in a battle if they have the right haymakers. The likelihood is low, but I've seen upsets. No one here questions whether or not you have skill.

PSS: SRD I did like your drop, but please don't take my vote the worng way. Chi-town out wrote you.

By the way, Obama does want to destroy the Government. He doesn't want a Democracy. He wants a Dictatorship. We'd still have Government, but it won't be OUR Government.

I suppose I'll give you that on some conspiracy tip. But as a punch itself it was awkward.

Multies:SRD he had more long multi chains
Flow:Chi-barely SRD's lines were long multi's but when read arent as exciting to flow.
Punches:CHITOWN..his Punches lined up well from setup to hit..
Personals:I felt like SRD didnt have much personal stuff
Nameplay:didnt notice any
Wordplay:Chi SRD didnt offer much in this area, if so I guess I missed it
Consistency:both..both stayed fairly consistent
Enjoyment:Chi - just a more enjoyable verse for my taste
Vote:Chi

this battle was decent some coo lines by both..

Chi- had some nice angles on his verse.. I liked the wu tang concept tho I thought that was the best punch of the battle.. you do wanna watch yourself depending on your opponent cause the animal hospital is a lil played, still your 1-2 setup is developing well .. respect

SRD- I wont let my bias towards you effect my vote, but if you want to discard it I understand.
You have some aight concepts, but your approach and especially your Punch needs to hold most of the Impact.
eg.
Watch it blow up in your face like your inflatable girlfriend to friction
Break all your bones at odd angles so you "Walk like an Egyptian"
^^^
concepts were cool angles eh decent but the 1st line holds a lil more opportunity cause of the wording..

this is what a rewrite would look like

break Ur Bones at odd angles now "youll walk like Egyptians"/and like inflatable b!tches Ur d)ickin//
watch it all 'Blow Up' up in ya face from all that 'F)uckin friction'

^^
we have different rythms but this wouold be closer to what I think better wording would look like for that line.. notice the literal imagery of "inflatable b)itches your d)ickin'
is an EXACT match to 'f)uckin friction' wich solidify's the imagery and helps you paint that scene in your mind..

thats about all Im going to breakdown and I did tell myself I was going to stop voting on SRD's battles cause he NEVER votes.. but I'll make this exception..

This was a good breakdown. MM is more blunt than I am.

To Mulisha Made: SRD does vote though and when he feels he would make a bias vote he refuses to vote. I think the only way he'll overcome his text battle follies is to sign up for a professional text forum and enter cyphers.

He has some okay ideas, but his work really needs to be scrutinized and called out when it is whack. People who battle tough opponents on a regular basis (like you) would just eat him alive.

The occasional narcissistic attitude he sometimes has doesn't help him improve. It holds him back.

By the way, what forums are you on now? I am on rapdogs.com because it is one of the few I can use in Korea.
