Trip 6 takes the win.
Congratulations Trip… in the end you managed to expertly knock that chip right off my shoulder. Well played sir, well played.
I think I can say with confidence that this was overall the best battle I've ever been in… and (at the risk of sounding conceited) possibly the best text battle I've ever seen. I knew you were gonna make me work for it, but god damn! When I read your first verse I was really impressed…but I felt I was up to the challenge and figured I could at least match it, which I thought I did. In fact, I was quite pleased with my response.
Then you dropped your second verse… and just like you, I was like “This motherf**ker!“ I honestly didn't expect the heat to be turned up to that degree, figuring you probably exhausted most of your best material in Round 1. Man was I wrong! That verse had my eyebrows past my forehead and a weird smile on my face the whole time… kinda like a mix of “holy s**t this is amazing!” and “what the f**k am I supposed to do now!“ That's when I realized that I was actually excited, and I'm not an easily excitable man. I had no freakin idea what the hell I was gonna come back with, but I knew I wasn't about to let you just run away with the win that easily. Nevertheless, I was staring at a blank canvas with the taste of blood in my mouth…my own blood. And oddly, that was a great feeling. It's just what I need to inspire me to bring my best, and the exact reason I prefer to only battle skilled writers. You did not disappoint.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading your 16's. The crazy multis, witty punchlines, clever wordplay, and tight structure… it was all there in very rare form, and abundance. I agree this easily could've went either way, as we're both on the same level more or less, but you definitely earned this win Trip. I'm not used to losing (in fact, this is my first loss ever, out of at least 16 battles) but I'm not the least bit embarrassed to say I lost this one. You came out swingin with some truly vicious bars and didn't let up until I hit the mat. Excellent work.
Some of my favourite bars from you…
“Slice ya eyelids with tin snips, knife ya five kids ‘n mistress, my, the violence you'll witness
I'll swipe their existence while you beg to feel their presence (presents) like blind kids on Christmas”
“I'm the champ; you're a novice, only time you get brought up is when this cannibal's nauseous”
“I'ma do you like Bobby did Whitney- “Yep, this last line ought a get rid of this b*tch““
“A cannibal's thirst, bring Hannibal's curse to life, ya bars are numbered like scannable merchandise
You wouldn't be hot rockin flannel ‘n thermal tights, jammed in a furnace like plans of the German reich“
“Accept the verdict -my art official like a clever wordsmith, you're artificial like an egg ‘n sperm dish
Ya know, I used to like you til you turned softer than Heaven's surface ‘n fell off like a leper's epidermis
You can't see that I got these two rounds like Helen Keller right in front of her mom's melons, shirtless“
“…ya ass is swollen… Ya know why? Cuz I put ya * when I run up and / your :“
That line with the “plans of the German Reich” was genius… great follow-up from the previous line, executed with precision multis and a clever punch at the end. What more could you ask for?
Til next time, take it easy brother.
Battle is now closed.
