    future sales: Goodfellas.ENT – Menace takes this one, pretty much all of his acts have proven to be able to move units, while most of Soakers are still unproven in this aspect.

    future critical acclaim: N.R.A. – pretty much reversed of the prior category. Most of Menaces roster have “been there, done that”, while Soakers young people are more likely to be hungry to prove their worth.
    Both labels consist pretty much of critically acclaimed acts, so it really boils down to the hunger, and yeah, Soaker takes it then.

    longevity: N.R.A. – goes hand in hand with future acclaim, at least to me. It’s a toss up between new comers and veterans, and it’s more likely in my mind that the new comers will be doing it for a longer time. At least that’s what seems most logically to me.

    album covers/tracklist: N.R.A. – first category where it’s close. Both came with some real strong work here, but at the same time had some pretty weak ones. Weird choices in either cover art or tracklist concepts, where either some of the feature choices or how the tracklist ended up not working to well.
    Soaker ends up taking this based on creativity, really liked the Jay Rock and Ab-Soul projects, and those two tips the scale towards Soaker. Menace was probably a little to genetic in some of the choices he made, and the lack of "out of the box" project hurts the final judgment enough for him to lose this category.

    cohesion: N.R.A. – another close category. At first I thought some of Menaces roster (producers) looked out of place, but they were put to good use.
    Soakers roster obliviously is very cohesive, due to the fact that it’s consist of the entire Black Hippy sprinkled with a few people I could easily see them working with in real life. Having only one “true” producer doing almost all of the work was a bold move, but ending up working well, again due to the cohesiveness of the roster.
    The deal breaker here ends up being Mariah. Now I know Menace has a thing for her, and the LP itself actually looks pretty good, both cover and tracklist wise, but it stands out in a bad way to me, and when it's as close as it is, it's stuff like this that end up making the difference

    Vote goes to: N.R.A.

    I can't even front @Menace stepped it up some of your 🤬 is still a little generic but it's miles better than your struggle art last game. I can't tell which covers are Sion-esque either so good job.

    And props to Soaker, I was definitely gonna do a triple album you beat me too it. That 🤬 is GOAT worthy.

    @nillerthekid I respect your vote but I wanna point out something you said about Mariah being on my label.

    It's like that in real life I mean Patti Labelle is signed to DEF JAM the same Def Jam who has DMX,Nas,Jay ect ect.
    And In real life MC is signed to Island Def Jam.

    Just had to point that out for you and the other judges

    Future Sales: Menace has a bunch of artists in this department that are known for going at least gold, plus with the anticipation for Dre music, that adds to it, while on NRA the only artists i can see going gold are Kendrick and maybe lupe

    winner: Goodfellaz

    Future Critical Acclaim: for future critical acclaim i think goodfellaz has several albums that have potential for good critical acclaim, but nra may have potential for great critical acclaim with the kendrick, ab-soul, jay rock and blu material, even with the lupe album. me personally i would hate to see lupe come with another album or songs preaching bout some 5 disiciplines of hip hop 🤬 , but i can see the critics eating it up n/h

    winner: NRA

    Longevity: this is kinda a tough category, i can see some of both label's artists having a good amount of longevity. but i think i BARELY give NRA the edge. like i said i can see both having longevity, but goodfellaz got mostly veterans that are known for longevity. i can see fans hoppin off the "bandwagon" and supporting the new cats doing their thing on NRA like kendrick, jay rock or isaiah rashad for a lil longer than i can see em continuing to support established vets like luda and snoop

    winner: NRA

    Album Covers/Tracklist:

    I like the covers goodfellaz has for this round, the luda, snoop dogg and TBT covers stick out to me, but in the end compared to NRA's covers they're just a tad too basic, as a matter of fact the whole pharell ludacris project was just not needed, only cover i wasnt really feeling for NRA was the Lauren Hill cover, also i thought the tracklists for NRA was more fitting to the particular artists, menace did better this game but still he had some 🤬 that seemed outta place

    winner: NRA

    like i alluded to in the last category, menace made improvements but i dont think it was enough to overtake NRA, NRA was helped out a lot by having most of tde, plus digiphonics. not to mention a couple of other artists that i could see using their production, with goodfellaz there wasnt a lotta things that seemed outta place, but there were a few key ones for me that i had to judge by. ion know if i can see drake wayne krit and jeezy all collabing with luda and pharell, and there were a couple dj mustard tracks that i didnt see as very cohesive wit the artist or album such as on the trap kings album ATL Stomp. the beat for a song like that is meant for DJ Montay if anything, but goodfellaz was pretty cohesive for the most part, NRA just was a bit more cohesive imo

    winner: NRA

    True, but DJ has plenty more artist than you, so one artist won't stand out the same way
