    You're an alcoholic Malice how much times you must have scotch after work? Is you're job that stressful? Lol

    Future Sales: I believe Kendrick is in the process if being able to carry a label as far far as sales but I'm not quite sold yet. Looking at the NRA roster, he will definitely have to carry the label. RRR will not have to many issues moving units. The big names are there and the cohesion appears to be pretty good. This category really isn't that close to be honest. It will take calculated moves for NRA to even keep up.

    RRR

    Future Critical Acclaim: NRA has a good mix of young artist that seem to be hungry. Hungry enough to garner some major Critical Acclaim? I'm not so sure if they are there yet. We all know Kendrick will do his thing and get the talking heads listening but a guy like Lupe. How bad does he want it? Again, with some good production and good marketing NRA could be there. RRR is already there. Too many artist that continue to garner Critical acclaim or very close to it. I don't see anything that would change that. I could go down the roster and say, yeah they are capable.

    RRR

    Longevity: As you know I am a fan of experience. Although the young gunners on NRA have plenty of potential they will need to come together as a unit to ensure longevity. RRR is already there again. They will be around for awhile and the artists that will begin to fade shouldn't have a problem passing the torch.

    RRR

    Album Covers/Tracklist: Just some great covers here on both labels. Like I said in another round I absolutely love what NRA did with Lupe to include a strong Tracklist. To me this just comes down to flow. RRR covers flow so well and you can just tell they are on the same label and they are a team. The Tracklists and production are pretty even on both sides so this came down to covers.

    RRR

    Cohesion: I like the eye test and my eyes tell me that NRA is a cohesive unit. Of course they will need to build on that with management and production but they definitely pass the eye test. RRR is a very balanced label that seems like it would work well. They have already started the process with the Album Covers. I'm going going to go with the eye test here and give the edge to NRA.

    Good job by both labels but RRR is strong. Other labels may want to watch out because they are going to be a problem. Very strong label.

    Winner: RRR

    Now let me go check out my fellow judges votes. I don't read other judges votes before I vote. I don't want any kind of sway.

    Props to @Soaker arguably the most technical label in the tourney but I built my roster to win this game. Idk why y'all are so surprised. After losing in the last game, in the Semis to Sion and seeing how he won with his roster I knew what I was going for this time around and made sure I nailed every criteria to a T. Once I had Jay, Cole, Wale, Cudi and Push in the bag along with smart pick ups like Mannie, Chad, Bink! I knew I had the IT label. And please believe I will be droppin 4 new projects in the finals. 10 track LPs and all. Theres only 1 rule

    Cheese should have made the switch. I called for it 4-5 different occasions. Best believe I had something for you doggie. The Jets album with the Tribe flip was tailor made for @Soaker. There was def something ready for you. You would have been swept

    LOL at "didnt read" but proceed to make a comment. 🤬 win a round where his opponent's top 3 artist were Cam'ron, Big Sean & Fabolous. Miss me wit all that struggle woofin you're doin. You think this is a popularity contest. If that was the case Ibex should have won & we would have had no need for a tournament. You'd probably only win a Sales category. Your label has nothing else LOL. Wayne has nothing on Jay Z ever. Jay is the hip-hop ambassador, Jay is everywhere Wayne cant get too. Step your troll game up.

    I didnt wanna do this lol, your team is weak compared to mine. Lets bring reality to this..

    Sales is a given

    Acclaim, what artist on your label has won any awards other than Jay? Weezy,3k, and Beyonce all have multiple grammys. And if we're talkin on a street level, Miguel arguably put out the best male rnb album in the past 5 years with Kaleidoscope Dream and Ross,Asap,Styles P and Budden still put out respectable material.

    Longevity, while your team is full of role players, my team is full of superstars, who've all proved they can not only sustain success but also branch off and build a successful crew of their own. Asap,Ross,Weezy are all bosses, pusha,cole,wale are all role players with bosses. Big difference.

    The only category you might win is covers/tracklist and that'll be a pity vote.

    Who cares 🤬 lmao

    Your best artists are Beyonce & Andre
    Andre has dropped about 15-20 verses the last 10-12 years
    No solo album

    So you're only real advantage is Beyonce
    Wayne's last album IAMAHB2 Bricked

    Miguel got Grammys

    Jay got 19 Grammys
    more than Beyonce
    More than Lil Wayne

    and more than Miguel LOL Miguel
    Cudi, Wale, Pusha T, J. Cole all have critically acclaimed albums.

    Go home dawg. Only reason why Cheese didnt make the switch is cause he didnt want another sweep on his hands.

    Its no suprise yall been workin together and hope to meet in the finals, but no matter how much yall work together it aint goin down like that.

    UR big comeback is a quincy spoken word album from 02 and sade winning a grammy off of an album she did in the 80s? lmaoooo And Im the one trollin? lmaoooo

    The artist with critical acclaim on your team are has beens who havent produced an award winning project in over a decade. Even the wu hasnt put out a classic album as a group since the 90s , and ghost's last was over 5 years ago. The rest has been puttin out duds, on top of that none of them win awards.


    The thing thats gon 🤬 you is, you think you deserve to win cuz off of the last game but youre crew isnt as good as you think it is.

    The thing thats gon 🤬 Ice is , he's too busy thinkin like a fan instead of a businessman. He think's cuz his artist raps better theyre better in the game, but it doesnt work like that. I made a perfect balance of artist with critical acclaim and artist who are power players.
