Both obviously were great lyrically and we knew we were going to get that in this battle. I felt like neither was aggressive as I would of liked. That said I felt ones delivery slightly more and felt they came a bit more personal which is how it should be here.

Babylon's original drop got cut off at 1:41 due to a system glitch, I allowed him to record the last 19 seconds and stiched it onto the end.

Rant had the better battle bars overall, and Babylon had Rant beat in all the delivery categories.  Bab's shit flowed nicely and was more aggressive sounding, and also had better rhyme schemes.  One thing about Bab's verse as a whole though, is it sounds more like a track verse the way it's written.  Don't get me wrong, he was attacking and hitting with some personals, but it's just so poetic and extravagant in its style, it becomes too obscure at times.  Rant's verse, though also complex and obscure in spots, was more straight-forward and clean.  Rant just hit more consistently in my opinion.  It's a tough call because Bab's verse was extremely well written, and Rant lacked in the delivery department, but I gotta go with who I thought brought the better battle verse, and who had better set ups and attacks, which imo was Rant.

Bab was slightly more concise & played nicely off of his personals while having the stronger delivery. Rant had some out of the box stuff that was dope but the verse could've been trimmed of some fat to throw a couple more puns in there. That and the lack of delivery is what gave Bab the W here.

This was tough....took 2 listens to each to decide. I really liked a lot of Rant's bars. It was complex, intelligent, and different. He was personal in places and it worked well for the most part. I just wish I heard like more of a difference of inflection on the punches to really call them out and give them more emphasis. Babylon was probably more aggressive with his personals and while he didn't quite match Rant's creativity, he had plenty of nice ideas and executed most of them really well which helped a lot of it hit hard. Babylon's delivery was a little more textbook than Rant's and as a result comes off sounding a little cleaner on first listen. I gotta say that the difference here came down to the closer, and while 'plain/plane' has been done to death, the unique set up and delivery of that set of lines was as on point as any in either verse. high 8's.

Look, I'm ripping you into 8ths. And cthulu's not sipping 40's with you, he's spitting them in your face. I've got a ruthless, cold stare. But the style he uses? No flair, it's just a deep voice, sci-fi, and the serpent he alludes to so there's a tie in to Satan. Ooo I'm so scared. You think this herb'll affect me? It's a tragedy, he's dead. You all figured the kid's awesome, too. But Babylon is eh, so if you give me that lip, den you should have some tea instead since this'll end in a brisk loss for you.(Herbal, Lipton.) I'll break his ribs and then ask is that 16bit? And cock the tool. I shot the fool. So the chance of Bab getting graphic with me? I rendered it; impossible. Real life? He's prob'ly cool. On LB? Catch him battling Ammo C... Sent'her fire to victimize her with some throw aways and then front like he's great and he's done some elevating and stuff... But they're hollow points so I'm waiting patiently tuh start casing his place for the drugs. Don't you get it? Your verse is full of cheap ammo, you need more bang for your buck.(Centerfire, Hollowpoints.) Face it, you suck. You'e not crazy enough. I'm too dope for you. That's shatter made from some bud cut from top secret strains with thc content percentages 80 and up that haven't been named yet, because they're too dangerous, bruv. Faded. As. Fuck. You think Bab'll be a threat? But all those punches, and concepts are average themes at best. Other rappers bar your life away, Babylon would rather multi-syllabic me to death. On some raw shit.... These are not some bars you can handle. I'll be in the finals, running out the door while I'm grippin' my title. Chain reaction, that series of events starts when I grin and high five you, then stops when what you peddle out ends your life cycle.(Pedal.) You fucking juck juck... When you march in for some rights, you'll be eating through a feeding tube. Imagine how easy dude is cited as the weakest on the site. In fact, if you protest how you're getting eaten in this violent scrap you still couldn't rally for the win when I'm reading you the riot act.(Marchin' for some rights.) You're not my typa cat. You're just a geek who cause played ravin' on the set. I'll start slicing out your throat, a few bones, your spine then scalp your homies, too. You're not a beast. Boy, point is I'm tight 'n tower over you.(Cosplayed Raven, Beastboy, Titan Tower.) The lil homie's a standard emcee. So all that cynic steeze in effect really means is there's no hope in your chance against me.

Cant believe my ending bars cut out, super bummed considering I heard them clearly in the playback before submitting like 5 times becuase I wanted it to be perfect lmao. Either way here's my bars in text form as rant did: 

Beyond all that false projection of rage seethin within you're played steeze with a pen, and my biggest fan here so while you paint scenes on the fence with your plain feeble attempts to dirstract mafuckas from how I claimed King with a glimpse all I see? is how much it irks you I that just 'got a way with words' thats great legal defense but homie on god If you ever book a crowd with that soft lame flow Ill show up just to toss you down that causeway home.. all you'll see is rant flyin through the crowd like a Kanye Showand after that fuckshit you pulled to qualify? You stooped down to whining & scandals just to be in line to get trampled.. You 'ran lines with the kid then Jacked frees' but fucking lied like a damsel and 'got axed tryna to get ya foot in the door' bro these are some of 'The Shining examples' of how your psyches dismantled. I mean, i'm wondering how you expect to hold stock grillin herbs after begging for your name on the card more than a rohaan signature are you slow dawg? Sit & learn hahmie It's bout time the bitch within you gets blitzed.. expected that easy kill so I discontinued his bliss when he got 'fired on before the hit' like ballistic missile defense!! Son I'm flickin ginsus at kids, ya whole style consists of referencing a concept ambigously till the NERD STAN IS AMUSED... and it makes sense, cus youre about as relatable to the scene as the FIRST MAN ON THE MOON. so go ahead, Stitch together any angles you can thread in to taper your defects when all THAT proves is your fabrications cant be cut from the same cloth, Rants tailored to seemstressed. just a ghost of his former self, the transparencys clear as fuck, so next to my haunting image this is just soul food to carry my spirits up!!^^How you tryna duke it out with crowned King, hope you poised to land in a hearse but it's all in jest, your clown-act is a foiled plan that I served, from bar 1, I had this queens blood in the air quicker royal family birthscame brolic & gotcha clock cleaned sparrin', Still think you fly? Ace, Cool ya jets, I'm at mach three dartin'.. while you just piecing together plain concepts like Lockheed Martin..

This is the best audio battle so far, by miles. There was a difference in style here and I think that made it even better. One was rather relaxed and well organised with his drop. While the other was a lot more agressive and just went at it. Very close this. 

Rant - This was dope from you but, that was expected. I liked how you came with some fresh attacks that most people haven't done yet (well at least I haven't seen yet). You didn't focus on pointless nameflips you went more creative and attacked his style of rap. This was then added with some very well thoughtout word play that I can't actually flaw. Usually with wordplay it comes across forced by most MCs however this was not the case. I feel your drop was also very well structured. It was consistent with frequent punch after punch. A bar I personally thought came off very well was the Cosplay one, fire. I'm giving this a nine. 

Babylon - This was a savage drop here bro. Shame about the last bit being cut off as it meant the ending of your verse didn't come off as clean. However you definitely compensated with the parts of your verse I did hear. Analysing the most of the verse I heard, it was sharp and on point. The flow and delivery was stronger than your opponent. You brought extremely aggressive bars which I thought stood out even more due to the different styles between the two of you. I don't usually think name flips come off that well but that Kanye show bar was fucking brilliant, both hard hitting and quite humerous, followed up with other hard hitting punches such as the shining bar and the rohaan signature bar. I'm giving this a nine. 

Overall gave you both a nine as I thought it was very even. I'm edging it this way based on preference of one MCs style more than the other, that's how close it was. Best of luck goes to both of you. Fairs in lads.

First off..Shame that one was put into a disadvantage due to technical difficulties. I still read the verse and pretended like you spit your last 15 seconds. With that said, great battle but it could have been way better if both of you delivered your bars a bit better and with more aggression. Punchwise I liked one's verse more but sounded as if he's reading it of a piece of paper and the general lack of emotion here hurt him. The other delivered his lines better and bridged that gap. Close battle and I've listened twice. Got one edging though

Babs I won't lie. Your verse was dope as fuck, the whole delivery and the personals. Had some witty ass flips in there also, (queens blood in the heir/royal family). Rant, you sounded too monotonous here. Many of your lines fell flat either because it took too long to get to the punch or that the punch itself was weak. Your best bit was your closer, tbh.

I liked this battle but I'm just dropping a critique and pointing out your flaws mostly. Rant, monotone. When you write, know when you plan on taking breaths. Use pauses and other tricks to hide them. You need to rap more animated, that'll help sneak quick breaths in w/o being noticed. Energy was horrible. Writing was superb but lacked punches and aggression. Babylon, you were better with delivery but not much. You were holding back, not breathing, and honestly started to get boring. Have more fun with your verse. You can do a better than just recite what's written in front of you. But you're writing was nice too. To me this battle was a tie. I expected more tbh honest tho. To who ever makes it, have fun with your delivery, show more confidence and commit to the flow, and you need more punches. Fr. It's audio, you can squeeze them in. Again, I liked the writing and concepts from both and feel it's a tie. But I'm going with the concept or 2 I preferred over the other.

Real nice battle here punchwise. I was hoping to hear a bit better delivery and mic precense from both. For sure I felt I could tell both of you were reading straight through it and didn't really bring your personalities to light. So on that mark your even. I got one being slighty more consistent and creative throughout their whole verse.

Honestly, I felt one took this with better mic presence, and a more aggressive style to his punches. Both were dope, comes down to preference really. Could go either way. Expect to see a split amount of votes. Good luck to both. Definitely the hottest battle audio side. Fairs in dope shit fellas

Rant: every time i listen 2 Rants verse i hear more and more punches and infact i believe his punches were very intricate and well thought out but they were hinderd and slept on by a lack of energy and aggression hence the reason its better 2 listen a few times.

Babylon: flow and delivery were on point for the most part, mebby a lil stretched at times but + a nice list of multis are what i believe solidified your W on this.

overview: i think if Rant had have had the same amount of emotion during delivery then this would have easily swung the other way due 2 a slighty better written piece.

Pretty decent battle! Rant starting off with a few wordplay examples; tea and graphic content (16-bit, tool, graphic, rendered it) ... 

In that regard, great setup! The content kept hitting. 

And then Babylon came back. At first, the first half of the setup was more of a scheme on how Rant is 'less than you', but you surprised me during the second half of the battle verse, adding some comical punches and some wordplay like 'Shining Examples'. 

I wish Letsbeef would let us incorporate mp3's into battles, so we could clean up the vocals and have em be heard ever clear-er than previously on the site...

I'm giving the edge on this one to Bab, particularly because he was able to successfully dissect Rant's initial setup.
