    There shouldn't be feeding but there aren't rules restricting that. That's why there is a verse due date BC some battlers may worry about the other battler feeding off there verse so it'll be safe to post minutes before the deadline. Just don't forget.

    Thread is open.

    Just noticed C.Melendez wrote 18 lines. Ya'll both went over the 16 line limit but 7th Ward Slim cut his down to 17/18 too so we'll let it go this time around. If y'all make it to round two, 16!! Lol. Let's get some votes. Both these dudes spit hot lyrics.

    They both spit some hot verses.

    C. Melendez kinda reminded me of a Gza joint how he had the theme of different beer brands going on. Gza is the GOAT at writing songs like those where he picks a central theme and makes a bunch of related name drops (see songs like 'Labels', 'Animal Planet', 'Queen's Gambit'). The verse here recalled that vibe and it still flowed nice so I was feeling the effort.

    The best diss lines were the shots fired in these 4 well-constructed lines:

    got goons on 8th tell 7th they just a *ward* away
    Cejota's a demon something crucifixes can't ward away
    my lines like *🤬 's wife*, 🤬 *hanging* on words I say
    They love my swag the way I swerve and sway

    7thwardslim, on the other hand, said "🤬 it" and went straight for the jugular. Almost every bar was a stab at his opponent... 🤬 , he was trying to decapitate him.

    u look 7 feet tall with 2 feet long legs... haha, ETHER.

    A lot of funny jokes about 🤬 's hairline my favourite being:"if u have a watch, it should read "its time for a hat". However, the rhyme on a whole wasn't as complex and lacked the double entendres and multis. It was a nice roast..no doubt...but it didn't quite flow as well.

    A close match but I give the victory to C. Melendez. Peace...

    Respect! I am going to make that a rule in the next round. Battlers can't vote on battles when the winner will face them if they win their own battle.

    I will vote on this battle soon.

    Ahhh, this is a difficult one..

    C.mendez came with some nice bars, his lyrics was on point, easy to read, flowed well.. It was orchestrated very well.

    7thwardslim went for the throat from start to end.. Literally every bar wasn't a jab but punches.. And because the strength off of how he came hard in his verses and every bar was pound for pound..

    My vote goes too.... Dam this is hard..

    7thwardslim!

    Sorry C.Mendez...

    1st off

    lmao at both of you guys writing 18 bars

    I was so concerned trying to get Slim to cut his 31 lines down to 16, that I hadn't realized Cejota had 18. A few messages later, when Slim had 18, rather than tell him "Dammit, you still don't have 16!", I stopped pressing when I realized Cejota had 18 all along. So I'll let it slide this one time. Now my vote.


    C.Melendez
    Feel like Im John starks or Chris Childs with it/
    Simply breathe on the *Mike*, they say Im foul with it/
    Yo, that was sick!!!! But you aren't dissing 7thwardslim LOL.

    Thats a veteran call, olderheads vouch for me/
    sending bullets 7th way, like he's running routes for me/
    be a rout shortly like the lakers and cavs game
    and im equipped with the 40. don't wanna hear the cal bang

    Cejota's a demon something crucifixes can't ward away
    IDK. Some fair lines. I liked the last line too but you were boasting about yourself and not dissing him.

    my lines like *🤬 's wife*, 🤬 *hanging* on words I say
    They love my swag the way I swerve and sway
    First line is SICK!! I think it's a minus though when you're in a battle with only one round and you have 16 lines to bury him and you're wasting them on boasting instead of dissing. Each line is valuable.

    last battle I killed it ..thought ole *bud* was *wiser* (shouln't checked in b)
    I got something * brewing* for him, not talking *malts* or *lager*
    *silver bullets* for his *wide mouth*, got the *steel reserved*
    Empty conscience loaded guns...*coors* & *steel reserves*
    Sick sets of lines.

    *4 Loko's who'll *spark* for me..leave u *tilt* on the curb
    Leave the comp *punch 🤬 * *pilsner* smooth with my words
    whip em like christ leaving *redstripes*... nothing iller man
    Judges shoulda threw away the keys...told em I'd "kiligan" ....🤬 again
    Sick closer. I don't remember you spitting this good.

    🤬 u look like u come out a comic book jack,

    First two lines were okay. Last half was alright but IDK why it made me laugh.

    U look like a 🤬 who dont have no swag,
    who wear man purses and fitted jeans with the 1/2 off price tag//
    You the type of 🤬 that polish his nails, went to community college and failed,
    and recently excelled at rubber-banding dog tails//
    LOL!! Some of these punches are starting to hit.

    They say a picture say a 1,000 words,
    but i only have 1 word when it come to yours, and thats nerves//
    After u read this verse, i bet u take that picture down,
    since u achololic it should be easy to get this ether down//
    Um. I kind of like the last line but I felt the rest was played.

    🤬 you should just try to 🤬 yourself, by overdosing on Rogaine until the hair reappear on ya scalp//
    You live with your parents and they call you scooter,
    made ya pops take the blame, when ya moms found porn on the family computer//
    Look at yourself in the mirror, close ya eyes and look again

    I thought you could have ended the battle a little bit better.

    This is a real hard battle to vote on. C.Melendez had ill flow. I like the wording of his lines and has crazy metaphors but some of his sickest lines weren't even disses against 7thwardslim. And 7th spit about a personal ALMOST every line but some of the disses just didn't hit hard for me. I'm going to compare this battle to boxing and to me, C.Melendez threw punches but when you aren't dissing your opponent, those punches are a swing and a miss. And he had probably one or two of the sickest lines in the battle but they weren't disses so they were like KO punches that would have knocked 7thwardslim out so had he dissed him, 7th would be out. And if you check 7thwardslim's verse, it was pretty much all directed at dissing C.M. so it's like he was swinging and barely hitting BC he wasn't hitting hard for me so sometimes he got gloves or was just tapping but it still counts. Overall, both of y'all had better metaphors and wordplay than I've seen so far in this tournament but one of you was more focused and racked up more points for me. This was a close one still.

    Vote - 7thwardslim

    C.Melendez came straight with the lyrical wordplay and got this off to a good start eventhough i felt some of the play on words were unneccessary reaches. Clever tho. But I gotta say personally when you gotta punctuate or highlight every punchline in order for people to 'get it' then it kinda comes off as forced. But again, 🤬 was dope.

    Then 7th went in straight up battle style. 🤬 said 🤬 trying to be extra lyrical and just came with hard cracks/put downs with a touch of humor. I also like the fact that 7th's verse seemed more focused directing the lines straight at his opponent. He decided to stick to the script of trying to point out C.Melendez's flaws and ran with that. Dude did a little research and checked out his challenger's pics and went IN on ol boy's hairline (damn that was raw), went at his family and even tried to make C.Melendez come off as unintelligent. Those are all the ingredients in winning a battle. I felt C.Melendez was more lyrical but this aint Def Poetry Jam...this is a battle. Both came with it but my vote is going to 7th
