Update:

There will be an OT round SRD vs. Alucard

Votes were 3 for OT
(1 Edged to SRD)

1 for DQ

NOTICE to SRD: This should not even be allowed. I could just give Alucard the W. The only reason why I am allowing this is because you wrote so well.

4 BAR OT round. No exceptions. Anything LESS will be DQed. Anything MORE will be DQed.(Aside from slightly overstretched bars lol.)

All material must be a Punchline bar. Winner gets to face-off against the winner between RRC and Chi-Town.

To judges: if you want to give me hand with break downs, please do it by the sentence and give points. Do this if only if you know how to read punchlines and can catch them well. I will unfortunately will not be able to post right now. I just recovered from being drunk so I have to put in some real work at home. lol

UPDATE: Chi-Town has won the match by a small margin. I will give Alucard and SRD 48 hours to drop their OT round.

The Finals

It will consist of Chi-town vs.???

The bars will be 16 bars.

Once I have a chosen winner: The textcee who won will face Chi-Town in a 16 bar match. Don't sweat it though because there is 4 days to write the material.

Chi-town vs. Alucard

You have four days to write 16 bars.

That's right, you will write a 16 with nothing but punchlines. I believe both of you have the caliber to pull this off. I think you will notice after the tournament how much stronger your disses will become. Good luck to both.

Shini did you post the grade on my drop against chi. I know he won I just want to see how I did? If you can email it to me if you don't mind. For some reason topix is not accepting any part of my rap in long form. But oh well.

I would Flames, but it'd be a push. I have made many verses... they take me about 10 days usually.

That is strange. I did honestly post it though, but it disappeared. I cannot find the other post either. You had some good punches but you missed some and the content wasn't as heavy as Chi-Towns. He came hard hitting and he was able to get the W. A lot of your disses were good, but they were not true punchlines. Vocabulary wise you had stepped up and had it been an actual battle it would have been pretty close, but since this is a punchline tourney, he got more points for properly executing punchlines. It was a good read and you honestly surprised me with your vocab, but Chi-town beat you 32/40 to 28/40.

It's all good. I don't think Topix has gotten around to properly coding the website for Iphones. It was fine on my fine, but it is using JAVA and Android and not the Apple OS. If you have a computer, try mailing the doc to yourself and pasting it.(Make sure you properly censor it because [email protected] probably got you admin flagged.

Okay thanks lol yea I don't ever have enough time to get on my laptop so I use my phone. And I'm still not completely understanding punchline bars? Can you explain the setup line and the punch line, like how you set one up and everything I did research and though I knew but guess not.

The basic rules are having two lines.

You have your set-up line and your punchline, which is why it's called a punchline bar.

Think of comics in nightclubs they usually grad the audience's attention with a set up skit. Then they follow up with a punch skit.

In example:

George Carlin: There is a reason I don't believe in god. You think he is forgiving? Show me proof. If you do not worship him you will be sent to a dark place with fire and brimstone...but he "loves you."

A punchline bar works like a comic's punchline except it is limited to two lines (or three depnding on the bar format).

I be that Golden Sound the truth on "Frozen Ground"
don't test (this play)/display soft I'll Nic Cage ya "Face-Off."

Line 1 was a movie reference alluding to Nicolage Cage,
Line 2 was an innuendo saying if you don't take me serious I can turn into the bad guy.

LIne 2 is best ended with a witty "play on words" <---not to be totally confused with wordplay. It will be your punchline.

I don't usually do gunbars, but you can make some great gunbars with punchlines.

I got that "white owl" ready to Harry Pop Her (Harry Potter)
If (Her Money) hermione ain't right I'll 'Range her (Granger)
