My Takeaways from last night's Verzus
- The Lox setting the tone early by yelling "Hurry the f**k up" to the late Dipset crew letting everyone know they weren't there to play.
- Jada on Cam's head from the gate "You can't beat me wearing leather pants"
- Lox's 1st song "F**k You" banged!
- Dipset thinking they could just Swag their way to a victory.
- Juelz saying "You guys must not like girls? You don't have have any hits for the ladies" and then the Lox hit them over the head with songs from Mariah & Mary & could've over did it if they played the Mya "Best of me" joint with Jada
Cam was Lebron going against the Warriors without Kyrie & Kevin Love.
Cam was doing his thing but it wasn't enough. Jada either matched his energy or just clearly beat him while Jim & Juelz couldn't help.
Everybody is talking about "How can you rap over your own vocals?" that ONLY became a problem because Jada created the narrative from the gate. Almost every rapper that has been on a Verzus has rapped over their own vocals including Jada vs Fab a couple of times in their battle but Jada planted the seed because he knew Dipset as a whole weren't masters of their craft when it comes to being an MC. Perfect strategy.
*The Famous Freestyle*
Imo, that wasn't even Kiss's best freestyle, and if you played that track against the "Computers Pootin" song I'd pick Dipset but Jada killed that performance & continued to set the "We're way better & more street than you" tone.
*The Set Up* "Go ahead & play Benjamins"- Jim Jones.
The Lox play "The Benjamin's"
Dipset counters "Dipset Anthem" which imo wins the round but The Lox keeps applying the pressure & plays "New York" Another death blow.
"You got punked"
Styles P rapping his bars (Originally written to diss Jay Z) to "Resevior Dogs" acapella to Jim Jones face.
The Blatant disrespect
"Shout out to Max B" - Said by Styles
Jada slapping Juelz soldier rag to the ground.
Talk Yo Shit Jada!
"That's Puff's song"- Dipset to Jada
"I wrote Puff's part!" - Jada
From 2003-05 I lived on 127th & St Nicholas in Harlem which was in the height of the Dipset movement while D-Block was also banging. Every week I bought nothing but D-Block, G-Unit & Dipset mixtapes. New York was going crazy over those crews so as a Facebook follower told me "Maybe your Harlem ties got you a little bias" and he probably was right.
The last time I watched a beat down that bad was when O-Dogg & Caine stomped out Lena's cousins in the Jordan Down's projects.
Jada bodied Fab & the Dipset pretty much by himself & I don't know too many rappers who could do that lyrically, catalog wise & stage performance which means Jada really is "Top 5 dead or alive"
