    Future sales: Sion
    Eminem.....need I add anymore to that alone...his sales equal a whole label my himself

    Future critical acclaim: Sion
    Em, 50, Face, Jay, and that Detox finally dropped??? Ppl are gonna be going crazy over those no matter how good they actually are

    Longevity: Sion
    I really don't see an album on iceberg label that would make it past a year in staying in the system in this day and age outside of prince and maybe badu where as I can see all the solo albums on sion label getting a good run

    Album covers/tracklist: Iceberg
    All the aftermath/shady/g-unit covers look the same to me like they all could come as a set for one album while I like the diversity in iceberg covers while still keeping with the artist and his album title

    Roster/tracklist cohesive: Sion
    Hard to argue when the majority of what he put really is an ACTUAL label so I mean you can't really get more cohesive then that with your label

    My vote: Sion

    @sion

    Thats a hell of a production.
    Its very deep, has variety but not as an attempt to chase the consummer.

    It targets on and only main ideal :

    HIP HOP

    Future Sales; I'm going with Sion on this one but its way closer than everyone is making it so far. Y'all act like berg ain't got Prince?! Outside of eminem none of sion artist sell no more. Berg are more consitent its just that Em factor is Too much.

    Future Critical accliam; Berg has this one. Most of sions peoples make worldwide music but Berg has the more artsy shit critics love. Lupe, baduh, and the weekend. Also at the point I'm their careers that TI and jeezy album going to be better than fifs.

    Longeitvy; tie sion has the old guns already but just because bergs are new blood doesn't mean they won't last long. Jeezy and Ti shelf life lasted longer than fifs. Also I feel like berg artists put in more work to stay relevant. Tyler has his niche fan base, fab is like the broke man's Jayz, somehow he finds a way to stay relevant. And prince has been doing his thang for longer than anybody in this battle lol

    Covers; imo Berg takes this hands down. The fif cover is wack. and the em fif cover I'm not feeling. The scarface covers are GOAT But Berg came with that creativeness. The TI cover is doo doo though.

    Trscklist cohesion; I would have liked to seem more kendrick on detox I feel like that should have been the logical move. All the fifty albums look the same and have the same vibe. Sions best work was jay electronica the EP and the lp look well thought out. Berg I feel has GOATER concepts just sometimes he relied Too much on Tyler production. but Tyler also hurts detox imo yeah detox is finally realeased but with all Tyler the creator on it word?!! Tyler is dope but its about cohesiveness.

    My overall vote goes to @icebergTaylor. I think voters are over looking the small details and are wowed by the 50/em/dre combo that hasn't made much noise critically in ten years lol

    Future Sales: i gotta take sion here, yea he may have a couple artist that dont sell as much as they did, but as much as people been anticipating detox, that'll sell, eminem could pull a mims and sell a mill sayin nothing on the track, and 50 cent might struggle to go gold but a 50 cent eminem collab album wont, iceberg has good star power, but in these days, ion see em surpassing gold except maybe prince

    Critical Acclaim: considering what critics may think of the albums i think sion barely wins this one, they'd prolly go crazy seeing scarface collab with people like big krit, or hearing work jay electronica did, or even the fact he did any work period, but ice berg made a strong case as well

    Longevity: Here ill go with iceberg, i see longevity in both labels, but i think i can see my self bumping albums from iceberg label a just a lil longer, jeezy and ti in particular, maybe fab also

    Album Covers/Tracklist: both had great cover art for different reasons, sions seemed a bit more to the point, icebergs seem just slightly more artistic, i think ill give him the edge there

    Roster/Tracklist Cohesive: sion barely wins here imo, the producing/feature selections are almost flawless, icebergs were great but again, im just not sure about tyler doing so much production

    another great(difficult lol) matchup

    Future Sales: Based on roster build and a combanation of past success with a majority of their artist, Sion Records definitely has the ability to build a buzz back and give listeners what they want to hear again from some of their artists. The Same can be said with RRE but I believe Sion Records has more "star power" - Sion Records

    Future Critical Acclaim: Sion Records has plenty of Artists who have garnered an enormous amount of critical acclaim in the past but what do they have left in the tank. If ever thing meshes together they could achieve the same. But. Based on a youth movement RRE may see the acclaim first.- RRE

    Longevity: The majority of Sion Records artist are tried and true. RRE will need everything to go right in order to maximize longevity.- Sion Records

    Album Covers / Tracklist : The Sion Records album covers look more like album covers while the RRE album covers look like dope mixtape covers. Although both of the tracklistings of each label seem to be exactly what each artist would come up with. Both are pretty creative and very believable. Due to the album covers- Sion Records

    Roster/Tracklist Cohesion: RRE seems to be all over the place as far as cohesiveness. Although many of the artists would work well with selected other artist, Sion Records artists seem to mesh better and are more interchangeable. - Sion Records

    Winner- Sion Records

    Ughh I dont understand some of these "I dont like Tyler producing so much" comments. I feel like some of you guys underestimate this kid's production. He's so versatile and i'm the first person to admit I never been a fan of his til Wolf where his production was incredible. Its odd (no pun intended) to see that a dislike for him is clouding alot of y'all votes.

    i mean u got the guy producing so much shit on ur albums, when he's unproven imo on beats outside his camp, sure a couple placements could work but whole erkyah badu albums, ion know, tip or fab on hit-boy beats, yea i can see that working cuz its worked b4, but some of the tyler placements just didnt seem like it matched up, its not a dislike for dude(although i do not take him serious really) just seemed like better production choices coulda been made, especially for goin vs sion

    Need I remind you you're losing by a land slide? Even dude on page 1 said you didn't stand a chance. Take your loss like a man nigga and stop crying. You look pathetic. Move along.
