Wow Teqneek and a few other of the HDC guys were right, your flow and delivery is on some carefoot type shit. Just stop reviewing and work on you flow/enunciation/delivery/confidence... hell, work on everything. Couldn't even finish listening to this track...

Kwing responds:

A fair review, I think. I haven't been recording very long, and I wasn't 'humming' through my vocals to produce sufficient resonance when I did this (hence why I sound like Carefoot, lol). That being said, if you aren't familiar with the beat it's easy to miss the uneven beat count and pass it off as being off-beat.

This was a bad ass battle for sure! Both of you guys are my homies so it really is hard for me to choose a winner. Eye-Cue had that aggressive flow while Teq had the more laid back flow and I think both of those flows complimented each other well. Both had some very nice flips as well! After listening to this battle a few times, I think I'm gonna have to give it to Eye-Cue by a hair. Whoever wins this battle will definitely deserve to be the champ. There are no weak links here and I wouldn't be surprised if Teq wins.

Vote: Eye-Cue

CLAB - Moses vs Satan CLAB - Moses vs Satan

Rated 3 / 5 stars

For me, this battle's extraordinary scope is summed up in two favourite moments. One is from a mid-game mission in which I flew a plane into another plane, fought the crew, hijacked the thing, and then parachuted out and watched it crash into the sea to escape death at the hands of incoming military fighter jets. Another time, whilst driving around in an off-road buggy, I got distracted by something that looked like a path up one of the San Andreas mountains. Turns out it was a path, and I spent 15 minutes following to the summit, where I nearly ran over a group of hikers. “Typical!” one of them yelled at me, as if he nearly gets run over by a rogue ATV on top of a mountain every time he goes on a hike.

I could go on like this for ages. GTA V has an abundance of such moments, big and small, that make San Andreas – the city of Los Santos and its surrounding areas – feel like a living world where anything can happen. It both gives you tremendous freedom to explore an astonishingly well-realised world and tells a story that’s gripping, thrilling, and darkly comic. It is a leap forward in narrative sophistication for the series, and there’s no mechanical element of the gameplay that hasn’t been improved over Grand Theft Auto IV. It’s immediately noticeable that the cover system is more reliable and the auto-aim less touchy. The cars handle less like their tires are made of butter and stick better to the road, though their exaggerated handling still leaves plenty of room for spectacular wipeouts. And at long last, Rockstar has finally slain one of its most persistent demons, mission checkpointing, ensuring that you never have to do a long, tedious drive six times when you repeatedly fail a mission ever again.

Grand Theft Auto V is also an intelligent, wickedly comic, and bitingly relevant commentary on contemporary, post-economic crisis America. Everything about it drips satire: it rips into the Millennial generation, celebrities, the far right, the far left, the middle class, the media... Nothing is safe from Rockstar’s sharp tongue, including modern video games. One prominent supporting character spends most of his time in his room shouting sexual threats at people on a headset whilst playing a first-person shooter called Righteous Slaughter (“Rated PG – pretty much the same as the last game.”) It’s not exactly subtle – he literally has the word “Entitled” tattooed on his neck, and the in-game radio and TV’s outright piss-takes don’t leave much to the imagination – but it is often extremely funny, and sometimes provocative with it. Grand Theft Auto’s San Andreas is a fantasy, but the things it satirises – greed, corruption, hypocrisy, the abuse of power – are all very real. If GTA IV was a targeted assassination of the American dream, GTA V takes aim at the modern American reality. The attention to detail that goes into making its world feel alive and believable is also what makes its satire so biting.

Grand Theft Auto V’s plot happily operates at the boundaries of plausibility, sending you out to ride dirt bikes along the top of trains, hijack military aircraft, and engage in absurd shootouts with scores of policemen, but its three main characters are what keep it relatable even at its most extreme. The well-written and acted interplay between them provides the biggest laughs and most affecting moments, and the way that their relationships with one another developed and my opinion of them changed throughout the story gave the narrative its power. They feel like people – albeit extraordinarily fucked-up people!

It’s worth mentioning that when it comes to sex, drugs, and violence, GTA V pushes boundaries much further than ever before. If the morality police were worried about Hot Coffee, there’s a lot here that will provoke moral hysteria. It’s deliciously subversive, and firmly tongue in cheek... but once or twice, it pushes the boundaries of taste, too. There’s one particular scene, a torture scene in which you have no choice but to actively participate, that I found so troubling that I had difficulty playing it; even couched in obvious criticism of the US government’s recourse to torture post 9/11, it’s a shocking moment that will attract justified controversy. It brings to mind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s No Russian mission, except worse, and without the option to skip over it. Some other stuff, like the ever-present prostitution and extensive strip-club minigames, feels like it’s there just because it can be rather than because it has anything to say.

There is nothing in San Andreas, though, that doesn’t serve Rockstar’s purpose in creating an exaggerated projection of America that’s suffused with crime, violence and sleaze. There are no good guys in GTA V. Everyone you meet is a sociopath, narcissist, criminal, lunatic, sadist, cheat, liar, layabout, or some combination of those. Even a man who pays good money to assassinate Los Santos’ worst examples of corporate greed is playing the stock market to his advantage whilst he does it. In a world like this, it’s not hard to see why violence is so often the first recourse. All the pieces fit.

Grand Theft Auto V is not only a preposterously enjoyable video game, but also an intelligent and sharp-tongued satire of contemporary America. It represents a refinement of everything that GTA IV brought to the table five years ago. It’s technically more accomplished in every conceivable way, but it’s also tremendously ambitious in its own right. No other world in video games comes close to this in size or scope, and there is sharp intelligence behind its sense of humour and gift for mayhem. It tells a compelling, unpredictable, and provocative story without ever letting it get in the way of your own self-directed adventures through San Andreas. It is one of the very best video games ever made.

And that is why Black Moses wins this battle.

CLAB - Jar vs Pachillis CLAB - Jar vs Pachillis

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I can finally vote on battles now, awesome.

Pachillis was wayyyyyy more personal with his verses. The "you're beatin' off into breaker and breakin' a world record for making a troll pregnant" line was pure fuckin' GOLD!

Not only is it personal as fuck, but it's actually true. Jar's wife IS pregnant and if you listen to the Jar vs. Breaker battle, the "beatin' off to breaker" is pretty self-explanitory.

Jar wasted his first verse by talking about Pachillis's flash games when I already did that in our last battle. Therefore, Jar is just repeating what I said. Then he wastes even more bars on bitching about the "best battle shit".

That just made Jar come off as a whiny little bitch. That hurt him more than anything. Instead of actually doing research and attacking Pachillis, Jar just bitches about something Pachillis had no control over. A huge swing and a miss by Jarhead.

The Austraillian accent at the beginning of Pachillis's verse was spot-on and had me laughing my ass off! I can actually imagine Pachillis hosting a crocodile hunter show with that voice lol. Not only did Pachillis outflow Jar, but he flipped almost everything Jar thew at him (which wasn't really much in the first place). And then he starts throwing personals left and right (Beating off to breaker/Jar's wife/troll pregnant, etc.). Pachillis clearly won verse 1.

In Jar's 2nd verse, he is just recycling bars by once again talking about Pachillis's flash games and calling him a "liar" when he already said that in his first verse. Then he wastes even more bars by bitching YET AGAIN by saying that Pachillis only spit 7 bars when they both get 16 each.

Guess what? Pachillis's 7 bars alone were more personal/entertaining that Jar's whole 32. Hell Pachillis could have only said the Breaker/wife/troll pregnant line and STILL would have won. Jar had NO personals in his 2nd verse whatsoever. It's quality over quantity... Jar didn't seem to get the memo. And he actually fucked himself over with that sloppy double time at the end of his verse. Aa Jakobe said, it hurt way more than it helped. A Cheddar Bob move, if you will.

Pachillis has an awesome rebuttul right off the bat with "clearly it's not easy cuz you're fuckin' it up". He's saying what we're all thinking. One of the best personals was the"Or are you just a lazy fuck who plays minecraft all day" line. It's a well known fact Jar loves minecraft.

In fact if you go to his youtube page, you'see see that he likes/favorites any video related to minecraft. Hell almost everything Pachillis said was personal! And "the truth is Jar just lost on his own beat" was an awesome ending and the final nail in Jar's coffin.

So my vote is for Pachillis. He was funnier, had a way better flow, and was personal as fuck. And he didn't waste any of his bars by bitching or complaining, he just came out swinging and cracked Jar (pun intended) in his motherfuckin' face! Before the battle, I had given Pachillis advice/ideas and I am glad he put them to good use. He's showing everyone he deserves to be here.

Vote: Pachillis

CLAB - Prometheus vs Axtekk CLAB - Prometheus vs Axtekk

Rated 5 / 5 stars

This was actually a pretty dope battle.Prometheus was very entertaining throughout this battle and his flow was on point. And AxTekk really brought it in both of his verses. The beat dropping technique actually worked better for him and made him easier to understand since the beat was drowning out his vocals. AxTexx's flow was also on point as well. An awesome battle to close out round 2. Good job gents

CLAB - suddle vs Butsaay CLAB - suddle vs Butsaay

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

This is a damn shame... a damn shame. Suddle would have destroyed this Screech Powers lookin' Fat Bastard soundin' Tourette's syndrome havin' bitch known as Buttsay. Dude is a gimmick that's played out. You wanna talk about corny? Look up the definition and you'll see that it's another word for Butsaay. For example...

"Ugh this movie is Butsaay as fuck"

"Dane Cook is so Butsaay on the stage"
