Re: (3) Stevoj87 Vs Ballerina P.

first topical but here it goes


You ever take a backseat to your life and take a ride
Through others minds, watching them go through life blind
Like their death is already in chalk being outlined
Well fuck politics and its about time
Hungry for oil, like gold and the port of Nome
But this is not a rush, its about US, living free is a must
Helpless soldiers on duty who should be home
The government knows theyíre full of jokes
Playing cards -- with out the best hand though
And still no intention to fold cuz our ignorance is bold
And it shows, and everyone knows that all lies truly glow
Itís like a horror movie, truth comes out in time
Itís still alive, thatís right Hitler never died

Fuck You This Shits Not Right
Its Like Fascism is still alive
How are we free with no rights?
Well because itís scandalous inside


A White Lie helps? Can it turn Bad into Good Health?
Fuck no, Oppose this Bullshit Show, We owe it to ourselves
The Founding Fathers would frown upon now
Then again, whoís to say that they deserve a bow?
Everythingís a lie, no one keeps the truth
Selfishness speaks for those who fear to lose
Iíll do me, and you do you, listen
NOTHING can stand against those two

Fuck You This Shits Not Right
Its Like Fascism is still alive
How are we free with no rights?
Well because itís scandalous inside


Lies become exposed in time, Back in 05í our troops deaths doubled for nothing
While stock at Halliburton went from 33 to 66 while looking for weapons of mass destruction?
Fuck Bush, But more so fuck the corrupt in the Governmental System
What matters is, Would anyone actually give a shit if they went missing?
Our trust as the people has been betrayed for ages
Itís time for a change, we as people have to make it
Stand together and unite like we are the greatest,
Look our enemies in the eyeís and budge
Cuz like them, its about time we donít give a fuck
Their time is up, reign is over cuz 08í is getting near
So letís all make this our revolution
No more internal scandals this year

Re: (3) Stevoj87 Vs Ballerina P.

We all obtain the same methods for dough
"yeah I've sold cocaine,meth and some dope"
"Yeah I'm from the hood crews'll shank and clap ya"
for the "real" you should feel thankful bastards...
this is the autobiography of a "Gangsta rapper"

Attempting to live up what the label wants is just stressful
can I seriously be real with myself and still be successful?
"you'll be the next 50" "You need a gimmick" is the word
Seeing I lack verbal talent and lived in the suburbs
Absurd! To disrespect the sacred culture of Hop Hop
But I desire the fast cash, ass and the wristwatch
.
Praying this shit stop! I'm different, those lames can't slay-with-precision
no need for pressure, pain-and-submissions, fuck it I've made-my-decision....
.
If I stay true to myself, I just knew this couldn't worsen
the irony, when in the booth, I'm a whole different person

"ack a fooo, dammit I'll hit chu
I keep mo' lead den mechanical pencils!!
frum da grimiest hood,YO! I represent, my residents
I keep a mac dat'll leave you dead like Presidents"

I attempted to end the image that I "bust my gun"
too late, #1 single, Sir-Kil-alot, entitled "I'll cut you son"
In the Radio Station's eyes, it's just a shameless deed
They promote, while the label sells it to brainless teens
Now-a-Days it seems, the kids won't get the right message
and they'd rather learn a dance than to learn a life lesson


We all obtain the same methods for dough
"yeah I've sold cocaine, meth and some dope"
"Yeah I'm from a hood were the crews'll shank and clap ya"
for the "real" you should feel thankful bastards...
this is the autobiography of a "Gangsta rapper".....


Ever since that dreadful day, I haven't went to bed right
now I'm doing interviews looking like a dear and headlights
My bread's right, but the seeds are blind in mis-leaded rhymes
I Sold my Soul for gold, but forgot about my peace of mind
"So Killah, tell us about yourself, we're glad you blown"
yeah, I'm from the Sub.......way, see I never really had a home
as we gather on, I seem nauseous as the interviewer vastly talks
"you ever been shot?" Yes as I point to a bruise from a nasty fall
"How did you survive on your own?" I sold candy just to maintain
"Candy?" umm yeah I sold pills "You mean Ex?"...... uuh same thing
feeling dizzy as I get ready for a concert, I kneel to the stands
The last question "What are your plains?" Keep it real for the fans
the crowd chants as the hype man jumps to increase the thunder
I run out sweating, steaming lights feeling like an Egypt summer
Regretting my previous choices, I'm wanting to do anything but this
rough shit, fatigue and a dry throat from making gunshot ruckus

My heart urgently races on stage as I recite the blown lies
to late right the wrong rhymes, until my microphone dies
or did I just STOP... la oss for words, blank mind none off page
What's the gangster thing to do in this situation? Run off stage

At my hotel room
pacing and smoking, but what's that gonna fix tho?
the clock ticks slow, feeling suicidal, what am I a schizo?
hearing voices in my head, something I can't defend tho
the wind blows, I wave around my .22 peeping out my window
I bust a shot, yelling "REST IN PEACE" is this room my destiny?
a message left, saying put down the gun they want the best for me
One shot to the television feeling like I'm on Con watch
knocks at the door, while the phone is ringing non stop
going in a frenzy feeling it's now or never here the fun stops
Can't run ock, as soon as I answer the door I'm greeted by gunshots~

Re: (3) Stevoj87 Vs Ballerina P. (0-0)

On Topic

Both stayed on topic throughout. Tie




Depth

Pressa went a lot more in depth on this subject. I feel like Stevo kind of brushed the surface, and Pressa got very detailed. Maybe it was because of the difference in their approach to this piece; Stevo was talking about an entire country, whereas Pressa did it in the first person.

Pressa



Imagery

I felt I was with Press every step of the way in his piece, from the interview, to the concert, to his hotel room. As I pointed out already, Stevo skimmed the surface because of his approach. Instead of focusing on a single "event" or "place" he limited his capability of winning this category. He had some imagery, but not to the degree Pressa did.

Pressa



Originality

This was close. Basically, the two ways you could approach this topic, these guys did one or the other. Stevo went with the "government" angle, and he pulled it off as well as you could. Pressa went with "first person" point of view and did a good job too. Pressa takes this category though, because he brought a good twist at the end. I expected the twist halfway through, but it wasn't so predictable that I didn't enjoy it. It was probably better that you had that feeling of dread throughout the entire piece to the point that I knew what was coming at the end. You summed up the "gangsta rapper" lifestyle. So for a hip hop topical, to relate it to hip hop in some way...is a bonus!

Pressa


Flow

Both were shakey in some places, but good overall.

Tie


Multis

Pressa took this category. That's just a sign of his "veteran" status on this site.

Pressa


Vocab

Pressa had a lot of typos. But he brought some multis, and some 'multi-syllable' words. Stevo's could have narrowed this category if his drop had been a bit longer.

Pressa


Enjoyment

Pressa. I liked your drop Stevo, I'm all about that government side of things...and not usually that "gangster rap" bullshit...but Pressa did a great job. He also put a spin on the subject, where yours was more ordinary than anything. Pressa, you should drop your verse in the written section when this battle is over, it's quality material.

Pressa


Hook/dialogue (if Applicable To Both)

Alright, I hate being this honest...but your hook Stevo is what killed my interest in your drop. It sounded very mediocre. Maybe if I heard it in audio it'd be different? Who knows...


Pressa, your "hook" was good because it was the perfect beginning for this piece. I don't think you needed to use it a second time though, since it didn't add anything to the piece. It'd be good for a song, but for a topical, there was really no point.

Pressa





Overall Vote :


Stevo, don't be discouraged from doing this in the future. Pressa pretty much knew what to expect entering a tournament like this. You definitely have potential to compete in the next one. Now that you know what really matters in these types of battles, I expect you to win next time around. If Pressa doesn't win this one though, I'll be surprised.

Pressa

.........................

VOTE: PRESSA

On Topic: Tie (as much as I hate to give ties)
..Both of these cats stayed on topic without wavering a little bit..

Depth: Press
..I would call this a tie, but if I had to say that someone went more in-depth, I would have to call this one for Press

Imagery: Press
..If you read both verses, you get a more fluid build of the imagery from Press’ verse. The

Originality: Press
..I gave it to Press simply because I read the topic for this one and Steve, you wrote exactly what I thought of that instant. I had to give it to Press for coming outta left field..

Flow: Press
..I’ve always been cautious when I comment on someone’s flow simply because I don’t know exactly how the cat intended for it to be spoken. I base this on the most natural cadence I could use when I read the piece. This usually requires me to read it more than once. Each time, I felt Press took this category..

Multis: Press
..In terms of a “Multis”, Press’s stood out..

Vocab: Tie
..I’m giving this a tie because I didn’t really see either verse “outshine” the other in this category..

Enjoyment: Tie
..I enjoyed both thoroughly..

Steve, this was a great read. I’m glad I had a chance to read your work. It’s just based on certain criteria that I found Pressa really stood out on. I definitely hope to read more of your stuff in the Drop Rhymes or even in another tournament..

Re: (3) Stevoj87 Vs Ballerina P. (0-2)

Here goes the start to my voting spree...


On Topic- Tie
Both took the topic their own way and turned it into a story, Steve's was more of expression of free speech relating to the topic, where Pressa's was a more personal approach of an actual life story related to the topic

Depth- Mr Ballerina
Pressah's depth was a bit more detailed then Steve's, for it took on one approach and stayed focused on that, so to stay consistent like that was more in depth then Steve's overall focus on whats wrong with the country

Imagery- Mr Ballerina
This one was quite easy to come to a decision on, for Pressah's left me with actual mental pictures of what was going on as I read it, it was very descriptive throughout...I felt like I was the one doing the autobiography...now Steve's was descriptive but it was in general pertaining to alot of actual things..overall it wasnt bad, but was outshined by Pressah's

Originality- Mr Ballerina
Didnt really expect his approach on the matter at hand, kinda expected Steve's approach to it though..well I expected that approach to be taking just wasnt sure if one was gonna do it..

Flow- Tie
Both consistent in my eyes, both had rough spots though as well

Multis- Mr Ballerina
As Breeze mentioned, Pressah's tenure in writing was an advantage here...Steve's was alright but not as consistent as Pressah's

Vocab- Mr Ballerina
For simple better use of grammar and the words in the verse, this was close though, I was actually expecting more from Steve and was kinda let down..

Enjoyment- Tie
I enjoyed reading both pieces, both took their own story to the topic and both portrayed the writers thoughts of the topic



Overall- The Ballerina Kid
Pressah's verse was overall better worded, more well rounded and defined in aspects pertaining to the topic...Steve you didnt do a bad job on this for your first topical, so keep at it...

Peace
