    I'm losing by 2 and now that's a "landslide" so not only you don't know how to articulate yourself you don't know basic math. What a cool life you live

    Sorry for the miscalculation. So you received one vote that I see so far after skimming which means you're losing by more than 2 votes. Maybe you should check your own math. Idk though.. you might be using a different kind of addition and subtraction or something.

    And just so you don't get confused, I'm not going by the rules of the game; I'm adding up all of the votes that each participant has received thus far to show you that my opinion is in agreement with the majority. So it's highly unlikely that we're all victims of bad taste. It's just your shit isn't up to par.

    I kind of lost interest in keeping track after this post:

    Thanks to all the voters. @Sion wins the community vote 4 - 0 and will now get 1 - 0 headstart.

    The community is now over and only votes from the judges will count now.

    Anyway, I don't have time to go back and forth with you about this. I would've given you a more in depth analysis but I missed the community vote. I was equally hard on MadSirius. It's nothing against you so don't take it personal.

    I apologize for the interruption Gov. Cheese.

    Future sales - My vote goes for @Sion. Eminem pretty much crushes all artist on Berg's label in the sales department. Not just that Sion have Em but he used him well. Em with beats from Rick Rubin, The 3 headed monster getting back together would sell out shows all over the world. Other than Em, it's pretty close but EM and the way Sion used him is just to much imo.

    Future Critical accliam - Hard to pick with this one but My vote goes to @Icebergtaylor. His label is mixed with youth that have tons of potential and veterans that garnered global success, it's a very good balance. Berg's label is the future. For Sion, I think his label would have problems keeping up with the direction music is going. Em would be the only one on there that would most likely be able to adapt and still sell tons of records.

    Longevity - I was about to call this a tie but looking back at it, I honestly think @Icebergtaylor gets this so he gets my vote in this one. Since the game is based on current status, this might be Em's last album. Em isn't a hip hop mogul like Jay or diddy so I can't imagine him sticking around making power moves for his label like those guys. 50's buzz aint the same like years ago and I don't see lloyd Banks and Jay E as artist that can bring longevity to the their label.

    Album covers/tracklist - Sion's Scarface and Jay Electonica albums are GOAT but I think Berg's covers are overall more artistic. His Killer Mike one is underrated. My vote goes to @Icebergtaylor.

    Roster/tracklist cohesion - My vote goes to @Sion. Both rosters are great but sion's label looks like a family, the cohesion is through the roof. I look at his label and instantly see a identity... Real Hip Hop. I look at Berg's label and I see art, It's a case where I give Sion a A+ and Berg a A-, it's that close.

    My overall vote goes to - @IceBergTaylor

    Cover Art- @Iceberg gets it. I agree with those saying there is more artistic vibe and if I was unfamiliar with the artists just the covers would grab me. The only one I didn't like was T.I. (I was crushed cuz I'm a huge fan, lol) @Sion the Scarface covers were my favorites from your collection. This may be an unpopular opinion but there are still plenty of people that will pick up an album just based on cover art

    Future Sales-Both labels have huge potential, Sion getting the old and new but Berg will come in strong with the new and younger sales-tough call. Having Em and Dre is giving the edge to @Sion. Dre could produce Miley and make that trainwreck credible again.

    Future Critical Acclaim- @Iceberg gets this. can't agree more with this statement "but Sion's greatest thing is also his worse thing his artiste are proven and already have their "classics" and at this point they fighting ghosts of previous glory while Ice is yet to come"

    Longevity- @Sion. His artists are proven and will always sell-fair or not

    Roster/tracklist- @Sion...the family unit worked in his favor

    Overall Vote: @Sion
