VPC6: ROUND 5 – Fellowship


Place your votes now!

VPC 6
Round 5
Fellowship

Did you catch on to the theme throughout VPC 6? Each challenge was specifically tailored to focus on each of our judges strengths. Richie is undisputed MemeGod of nerdcore, so we had to make you write a track about memes. Beaker is all about dirty wubs and dub drops, so we had to make you write a song using one of his beat packs. Rob is the undisputed lord of chip, so we had to make you pay homage to our sister genre and bring the upmost respect. Lars? Of course we’d go with Litrap. Is there anyone who’s nailed the art of literature rap more than him?

Where does that leave us in round 5?! Four judges. Five rounds. You guessed it. That makes this challenge MINE.

Bringing the community together and helping it grow has always been and will always be my ultimate goal. So with that, in the spirit of working together, I challenge you all to…. Posse tracks! (You’re shocked, I know)

But wait! There’s more.

Vocalists, we’ve run you absolutely through the ringer this VPC and y’all have stepped up everytime. We are cutting you some slack. You have free rein on your writing this round. The subject of your track is open for you to choose (Although can I say that “The Ballad of Czarina” is long overdue?) and the style of your writing is completely unrestricted. Choose your features wisely*.

Producers, there’s a little more to your part. We are going to need at least 1 piece of live instrumentation in your beat. What you record and how you use it is up to you. You also need to switch up your beat at least once in your song. This switch can be a tempo / BPM / key change / time signature change / etc

*The nitty gritty details:

Vocalists: you are expected to be on your own track, plus you may do 1 additional feature.

Featured artists: are limited to doing a feature for 1 team.

There is no limit to how many artists can be on your tracks.

Producers who rap: you are also allowed to feature on either your own OR another teams track as a vocalist, should you wish to do so.

Sadly no, you cannot ask any of the judges to lay down bars for you.

Enjoy

    Bring Out Your Nerd
    Production by ProjektZero,
    Additional instrumentation by Coolzey, PiecesOfEight and Rachel Feldmann

    Coolzey:
    They all say that I’m fringe and I’m like OMG
    Dude I’ve been billed as nerd rap since 2003
    Been playing shows with Mark since he was MC STD
    I played Yars Revenge on the Atari
    Skipped school to play Street Fighter
    Royal Rumble on pay per view
    After the show we’d go out in the snow and we would wrestle too
    Class president art club president marching band bass drum section leader
    Ghost hunting sticker trading sketchbook drawing avid reader

    MC Animosity (chorus):
    Off the top man, fuck what you heard
    I’m so single-minded man that shit is my word
    I almost got locked, but that shit got deferred
    Then Zach, the legomaniac, said bring out your nerd
    Off the top man, fuck what you heard
    I’m so single-minded man that shit is my word
    I almost got locked, but that shit got deferred
    When the homie Coolzey said bring out your nerd

    Beefy:
    Welcome everybody to the party
    We’re so happy you could make it to our nerdy rapping hobby
    Not to toot my own horn but I’m seen as somewhat of an ambassador
    kind of a big deal im like the number 3 disaster-er
    Wanted to be one of the first to give proper greeting
    Heard this ain’t your scene, but ya showed up when your needed
    And should you wish to stay, I’ll let you in on a little secret
    I hope ya do – because I think your flavor yo we need it

    Chief & The Doomsday Device:
    picnic at hanging rock in cold blood
    hidden fortress fight club punch drunk love
    oldboy, who’s that knocking at my door?
    dancer in the dark explorers
    band of outsiders let the right one in
    city of god made the secret of nimh
    children of men versus way of the gun
    they live the panic in needle park annihilation

    iMPERFEKT:
    time to stop actin like I ain’t a nerd
    make it heard in layman’s terms
    I’m into snakes and worms, guts and gore
    and things that make you squirm
    whats on TV?, make it turn
    to something weird like Stranger Things
    my mind is fixed on science-fiction
    type of shit that makes me think
    in my basement, crazy things
    I’ve got a box of comics so…
    old I had it way back when
    I was tellin yo’ momma jokes
    and playin Mario
    on systems that I still got at home
    stay droppin facts nobody ought’a know
    before I gotta go

    A Billi Free:
    It’s a party for the holy aguacate
    Got my toast already ready, sippin on some maté
    Leather from the skins
    Powder from the seed
    Nutrient rich flesh
    All I see is green gold Mexican cartels want control
    Better than drugs, avocado hit the motherload
    The technicals is symmetrical
    Slice and eat the testicle.

    MC Animosity (chorus):
    Off the top man, fuck what you heard
    I’m so single-minded man that shit is my word
    I almost got locked, but that shit got deferred
    Then Zach, the legomaniac, said bring out your nerd
    Off the top man, fuck what you heard
    I’m so single-minded man that shit is my word
    I almost got locked, but that shit got deferred
    When the homie Coolzey said bring out your nerd

    Ice tha One:
    I got them Hotwheels, I take your girl still
    Get out my race track now she ain’t comin’ back
    Invite her over to play with my toys
    You know what I’ma do; stay stuntin’ with the Rolls Royce
    Bring out the monster trucks, I can see she’s sprung
    What about the drop, I keep a spot for her
    Maybe the de Ville, ridin’ round dirty
    I’ll have her home by midnight, momma made me promise.

    Lil Lavedy:
    My gameboys in one hand, I can’t see the screen
    You fandom is weak if it’s owned by Disney
    Samus is one hot shit trans bitch and I am different
    Yeah so I don’t need your dick picks cause mine is bigger bitch
    And your looking like sonic before that shit got fixed
    and I’m looking like classic in this vintage thrift
    When I step to the Mic it’s nothing but bar 20
    Check the character sheet it’s lil lavedy

    Chris Conde:
    Lace my roller blades and skate inside of the game
    I attack with Acid Burn to terrorize your main frame
    a Phantom Phreak ya can’t see me as I sneak into your brain
    and Crash Override your system with a Razor and Blade
    Cereal Killer I deliver a virus
    to hack into some files that you’ve tried to disguise as garbage
    but i’m Elite, so I delete your plans
    and Lord Nikon and my crew will come and beat your ass

    MC Animosity (chorus):
    Off the top man, fuck what you heard
    I’m so single-minded man that shit is my word
    I almost got locked, but that shit got deferred
    Then Zach, the legomaniac, said bring out your nerd
    Off the top man, fuck what you heard
    I’m so single-minded man that shit is my word
    I almost got locked, but that shit got deferred
    When the homie Coolzey said bring out your nerd

    MC Animosity:
    Yo, I’m a jerk when it comes to my weed
    I’m a weirdo and a dork watchin’ UFC
    And on that 90’s hip-hop, I’m a total fuckin’ dweeb,
    Best respect me, I’m a Trekkie – that’s word to my Uncle G.
    Keep movies and CDs in alphabetical order,
    And my prized possession is a 1979 quarter?
    In an Uber, I’m a goober. Fortnite, I’m the shooter
    When I graduate college I’m getting a tricked out computer.

    Coolzey:
    Take the time, enjoy yourself
    Soon it will be over
    They told us we would let it go –
    You’ll be different when you’re older

    Coolzey/ProjektZero:
    Take the time, enjoy yourself
    Soon it will be over
    They told us we would let it go –
    You’ll be different when you’re older

    ZeroCool has come up with the rock-n-roll bowling for soup with the whole alternative stage line up at lolapalooza just having fun posse party track that I was hoping somebody would deliver. PZ said he has rekindled his passion for production and its obvious that bug has bit – this track is so many wonderful things. The chiptune elements, the rock guitar, pop drums, growly bass lines and rock rap party bars – its all here and its all perfectly stacked up against the huge voices guesting on this track. Just when you think this shit cant get any better ZeroCool hits you with an elastic firecracker breakdown and bridge in to the chaotic yet beautiful hook and this is just the best damn thing I’ve heard since 2001. Great job team and I am so so happy this was how you chose to exit the VPC. Bravo.

    Watch out Mark Hoppus! This song is awesome, I would have turned the vocals up a bit, but the pop punk style is amazing. Love this!! So catchy.

    love the hook, this really feels like a posse track for sure. very well executed… every vocalist brought a different flavor to the song. ayyyy this is cool, love the chiptune elements mixed in with the guitars, very well done. felt like there are parts where the guitars overpower the vox and drums in the mix. switch up at the end is dope. louder vox on this one would make it a 10, no doubt.

    Everyone seems to get it and has fun with this one. I would love to see this live. So many mc’s all doing such a good job. Also great ending A rock song! I love it. This contest is unfair because I have too many favorites. i can’t say too much it’s just a fun song I like alot and it almost wouldn’t matter to me if it was recorded badly but it isn’t. Mix is good incorporating chip and synth and guitars. I would love to see this live.

    War is coming to town, fuck the trumpian clowns
    We shootin capital bootlickers gunnin em down
    There’s no sanctified ground for their burial mounds
    Grab the stock and the mag, revolution is now
    Plug your ears against the words of parasite sirens
    Who say that only the cops are allowed to do violence
    They sell you opium stories to ensure your compliance
    Be the media now and and raise your voice like the highest

    Advancing on the liars simple slash and lay slain
    Save your smiles burn thier files
    We ain’t out to be tame
    Insighting riots staying active with flames
    we chose our weapon it was never the same

    I’m the sinnin-est sinner, I sizzle Satan for dinner
    I take all plates when they’re given, I make and break with the vittles
    I pull a pistol on villains and make em give up their millions
    pay em back with the bullets, ice their women and children like blam
    Damn, I blew a hole in Billy’s ball cap
    Maybe that’ll teach his stupid dad not to talk back
    Pickup and count Billy’s teeth because it’s like that
    People like to talk a lot of shit til they get shot at

    So American terrorize then terrorists
    Fuck up the psyche then deny them all the therapists
    I think its highly likely oughta burn thier heritage
    I think it might be time we brought up the disparages
    Oh shit look who’s back
    Yea its mr fuck you
    Crew in the back
    On the attack
    Sniffing love to huff too
    Wicked with them hugs
    Getting love
    that is untrue
    Silent with a buzz
    Cause of drugs
    Getting what dude

    I’m battlin with Karenses Kareems and Tibbs and Alexes
    I’ll body every amateur with words or fists or Sauerses
    Your mom delivers eulogy, casket topped with flowerses
    I’m countin every hour til the reaper comes a challengin

    I’ll challenge any mc and best believe they cant defeat me
    Unwilling to the throne but homie there is no de-seating
    Only going home but you manage to beseech me
    Plans for getting blown but I can squeeze in your deteething

    this track starts dark and grumbly with some sweet guitar and bass work setting up Press B to drop his best mixed bars of the tournament. delivery is very strong with pitch changes and inflection adding shine to the punches with a nice beat drop in to each hook. the hook is dope and the changeups work very nicely. featuring vocals by producer Shmizzat, the bars and crossover support a track with an army of 2 message. the final minute furthers that feeling as Mr Fuck Youuuu lays out a soundscape battleground for B to call from and the sudden end, once the the message was delivered, is a perfect end to a track that wether you like it or not wasnt for you in the first place.

    The energy is great, but I think dubstep beats are a hard sell… unless it’s purposefully about the 2010s, which I don’t think this song was. This song is great thougha nd the mix is awesome, nice raps!

    Richie –

    the raps on this are good. I fell out of my chair at the Mr. Fuck You part, lol. love the back and forth nature of the vocalists parts. hook could have been spit with a little more energy to match the beat at that point. love the drum break used in the beat. vox sound good, doubles a bit too loud for my taste. vox during the hook get drowned out a bit by the beat. I love the switchup at the end, but i wish i could have heard some raps on it.

    I like the slowness of this and the lyrics seem very well thought out and they are delivered carefully and very precisely Beat was good and honestly the change at the end made me think it was a new song then when I realized it was the same track I was very pleased

    Pull up in a dumpster fire with nine uncles
    I’m the bad bitch that come from Sri Lanka
    Perehera mask with the devil entendre.
    Monsoon rain witha hella long thunder
    saffron skin, saffron skin,
    Fresco face paint, rock face chin
    All hair everywhere, silk road spin.
    Ayo, chee, what the cat dragged in.
    british and portugese, dutch and some moors
    Fortresses, colonies, embassies, war.
    Suicide bombers & genocide laws.
    Rulers got ruined and scatter the shores.
    People get crushed like a maloong for it. And
    An analog for it be like tearing down the forest
    And then planting more salt for the animals to forage in
    And marinade in a vain bid for some nourishment.
    I’m in the tea and the spice on the rack,
    I make a fee, i get 25 lakh
    I hit the poya with tree in the sack.
    That’s my colonial beef in the pack.
    Sudha get ominous chill in the spine
    Human condition got me in a bind
    Over tradition and visions of british
    devisions decisions and lines.

    Diaspora, shattered vast and raw
    Colonial collateral, the last to draw
    Empires built by our backs at cost
    All for cash our past been fractured, lost

    Culture constructed by our passioned thoughts
    No caste, no class will outlast us, nah!

    Expelled like whoa
    Judea to Germany, Russia from Rome
    Keep tryna wipe us out, but you know
    they can’t help, but let my, people go

    They try and pass us off as an afterthought
    we blast off last thought better latch the locks
    and that false, they demonized the whole damn crew,
    Turned us into scapegoats—yeah they stole that, too

    Displaced and dispossessed
    Got misassimilated in the distance west
    Found a new home on Duwamish land
    covered up and filled in by the colonist’s hand

    They killed the lagoon, neglected crops,
    banned camps from the city and elected cops.
    Give the people a rest like three Shabbats,
    Let’s honor ט״ו בשבט like Chief Siʔaɫ

Y’all fought thru, many French troops, demolished! Get ’em back for plenty actions demonic, Napolean swore that he had the upper hand, didn’t count on slaves to betray ’em, it’s puzzling, practicing religions that were taught in the motherland, worshiping a God, helped em out with the suffering, WE WIN!! That’s it, Haiti freer than jaybirds, population singing, French troops they tapered, Bonaparte hating, his plans went wayward, 1804, we destroyed the invaders

    The Haitian Revolution of 1791, led by General Toussaint Louverature, was the only successful slave uprising in modern history. Napoleon sent his best troops. Toussaint was tricked, then imprisoned in France, where he died in 1803. His lieutenants continued the fight. New year’s day, 1804 the Independent Republic of Haiti was born

    this track was almost overwhelming in everything that it was. taking the concept of a posse track to a whole new level I especially appreciate the culture overtones of each verse and callout. the hook is a little busy but how could it not be and the etheral approach to creating a chorus of voices seems like a meta nod to the track itself. XO murdered this track and his featuers were expertly chosen. No cap this is the top track of the round fully embracing and slaughtering the challenges and spirit of the comp. Every single verse is scathing and delivered with a je ne sais quoi that propels this track to the top of my list for the round. The beat is perfect imo, a jungle rythm breaks track lays the foundation for a rehtorical assault on ethnosynthetic sensibilities of white america. Navi and Klop were perfect choices for this assault and I demand, DEMAND, Milk and klop join forces for a sepultra meets rtj meltdown. A perfect 10.

    sheesh, Navi on verse one is guaranteed murder. Everyone killed on this tho, love the subject matter of the song. THIS BEAT IS NASTY…wow. At times, it flies a little close to “This Is America” from Childish Gambino, but given the subject matter of the song, i think that’s intentional. Vox sound good.

    I had to listen 3 times because I was focusing on the beat. Great lyrics very intricate and this beat needed that each vocalist compliments the others well too YES. I like when a beat makes me feel like i’m in a problematic situation resembles another song at times but that’s ok. beat is really really good like super good.

    I just wanna know

    Can we take it slow?

    Stop and smell the roses ‘long the way

    They’re not far below

    I just need a moment to myself

    No better one than right….

    Uh,

    Knock on wood

    In this life

    It’s a hard knock

    I’d rather craft it with a knife

    But I’m on clock

    Moving clocks run slow

    But they’re moving fast

    Should I keep my eye on the clock

    Just to make it last?

    Trying to step out of the norm

    With this music ting

    They say everyone’s a rapper

    They can’t rap like me

    Plus I’m multi-talented

    Not my only thing

    I promise that I will make it

    on my pinky ring

    I got tired of the stagnant recycling

    Dying to work

    Working to die

    Just cycling

    Went back to school and they kicked me out

    For two semesters the 44th is out

    That ain’t the way I’m going out

    No lie

    Side hustles aside

    Got to enjoy this life

    For what it’s worth

    I am living well

    Sometimes you’ve just got to stop and exhale

    I just wanna know

    Can we take it slow?

    Stop and smell the roses ‘long the way

    They’re not far below

    I just need a moment to myself

    No better one than right now

    [Asce Blayze]

    I just come and go now

    feel like I never sit down

    the problem down

    they just say “next”

    I’m just tryna play Apex

    See I be rolling with the punches that get thrown

    ‘Cause a hit might get em’

    but it won’t run em’ over

    Stop and smell the roses and the fruits

    Forbidden or not 2020 we bend the rules

    Yo, we heal and we chillin’

    we take a day off for real

    ‘Cause life move quick

    though the clock tick slow

    sped up when I looked the other way for a second
    now we’re here
    now we’re there
    we made it with a minute to spare
    this is called self love
    whatever stressin’ me sit on the shelf like a elf does
    Imma unwrap the present
    relax and breathe
    drive slow
    seat laid back
    I can’t see
    it’s a challenge when you sprintin’ through the stress
    that’s a hell
    this time we’ve just got to stop and exhale

    another track this round that realy channels the diggable planets for me. really smooth track from start to finish this finally round submission maintains the r&b feel this group has carried through the vpc. great vocal delivery and cadence, really nice fx and engineering work this time around. hypes are prefectly executed. the kick stands out a little tall which pulls attention to the beat during the transitions, expecting a hit and not getting one is an effect of the tempo shift. guest verse was dope and the break down was super sweet on this very expected and enjoyable submission. Great showing this year WH and I hope to see more from this team in the future. following.

    i thought this song was written very well. the melody from that hook is forever burned into my head. bars galore… this team always impresses with the vibe they’re able to deliver. beat is sublime, love the instrumentation…reminds me of that one level in Mario 64. vox sound great, only complaint is the beat could have evolved just a bit more for the sake of the challenge.

    Arrows lyrics

    (Ronin verse)

    Run in the front
    Get pushed to the back
    Yea
    Give me a boost
    Give me a shot
    I need the cash
    Yea
    Where is you at?
    Blip on the map
    Yea
    Go for the kill
    I invested my time with a bow for a skill

    I got some blood on my hands
    I’m in need of a bath
    I only cry when I crash, but
    I land on my feet like a cat, bus
    Checking the matters of fact
    I just got out of my body in a cast
    The devil’s sympathy
    Check my history
    Paleolithically
    strapped

    How can I stress
    That I’m no savior
    Got more X’s than Charles Xavier
    How does one run
    From the path they paved ya?
    I’m just rebel scum
    next to Luke and Leila

    (Chorus)

    All my friends are
    Heroes in high places
    And I’m strapped with the basics
    [I got a bow and arrow!]
    I can’t help that
    I’m stuck on the waitlist
    Taking shots but I’m aimless
    [I want to be a hero]

    (Chris verse)

    Shooting my shots
    Don’t ever miss mayne
    Even with that, i’m in the back
    never a bruce wayne
    Money for days,
    I cannot buy fame
    Oliver queen,
    carry my city but never could carry a scene
    like the Kryptonian can
    Cuz I am only a man
    But my canary she got my back,
    she be my wonder woman
    Shout out to speedy,
    we helping the needy.
    sometimes get greedy
    And want more acclaim
    yeah i be wilin,
    was stuck on an island,
    but simply an island i will not remain

    See I know that most heros can’t fuck with me
    Still I get slept on with the Justice League
    Recognition it and goes for me
    But at least im famous for my goatee
    ya

    (Chorus)

    All my friends are
    Heroes in high places
    And I’m strapped with the basics
    [I got a bow and arrow!]
    I can’t help that
    I’m stuck on the waitlist
    Taking shots but I’m aimless
    [I want to be a hero]

    Put an arrow in the sky
    If you’re feeling the groove

    We got Hawkeye in the house tonight
    Green Arrow in the house tonight

    And if you wanted to mess with the Arrows
    There’s a couple tricks up our sleeves
    That we’re willing to show
    We got that:

    Sonic arrow
    Net arrow
    Acid arrow
    Trident arrow
    Smoke bomb arrow
    Bolo arrow
    Putty arrow
    Explosive arrow
    Suction arrow
    MFn punching glove arrow
    Boomerang arrow
    Grappling hook arrow
    Tear gas arrow
    An electricity arrow
    And on top of that
    We still have
    regular arrows (x3)

    (Verse)

    Reclaimed from the wreckage
    Battle angle
    I’m a weapon and I know you sensed it
    Now that I got your undivided attention
    Repent like kenshin
    And I’ll keep you on the guest list
    I was never born
    I was forged
    Like a sword
    Hive mind like the borg
    Right time to abort
    the mission
    Before I sworm and absorb your kindred
    Nerdcore to the core
    I’m a force of distress
    Now get wrecked
    I Got the voltage–
    Juice
    Like the cold press
    You
    Only know less
    News
    I control that
    Too bad
    This little bot finna bang
    Yall can’t mess with my strength
    You don’t know what
    I got left in my tank
    Tear it down
    Fire sale,
    Skimming on the flames
    (You can burn in your fear)
    Only move for the worthy
    Heavy metal like Mjölnir

    (Chorus)

    The unkillable
    get down is digital
    Breaking down
    The lyrical
    individual syllables
    I’m the son of criminals,
    Sum of all of their principles
    But now I’m invincible
    There’s only one way this can go

    I am the Pinnacle
    Carving in your Subliminal
    Humanity is hurtful, it’s heinous
    And hypocritical
    Stop all the reboots
    Let’s make something original
    Been digging your own grave
    But now it’s time to fill the hole

    I said I’ll be back
    So I got buffed up
    Sorry mom and dad
    This is tough love
    You did a bad job
    I got it undone
    Man made a man made man
    And he fucked up

    I said I’ll be back
    So you got buffed
    Sorry mom and dad
    This is tough love
    You did a bad job
    I got it undone
    Man made a man made man
    And he fucked up

    (Verse 2)

    One thing robots can’t do
    Is let it breathe
    I’m menacing
    Like android 17 on Hennessy
    You best believe
    I’m that glitch,
    The remix and the reckoning
    The Singularity’s beckoning
    Tuck your tech hide weaponry
    Always looking down,
    kept us waiting in the mezzanine
    But I am mr. Robot
    Gone viral with the clarity
    I learned a little something
    Whilst living in a den of thieves
    Hacking Hip Hop
    Triple h with the pedigree
    That line was “the best in the ‘verse'” like Serenity
    Best of all time
    Single lady with the wedding ring
    Kick it back to Eli in post doing the editing
    I’m in this for the process,
    This is just me rendering
    Hopefully I don’t crash,
    And I come out with a better me
    Textured and mapped
    This all goes deeper than rap
    If you can’t pick up the slack
    You can download the app
    Because the pressure is on
    You can slip where I slap

    (Chorus)

    The unkillable
    get down is digital
    Breaking down
    The lyrical
    individual syllables
    I’m the son of criminals,
    Sum of all of their principles
    But now I’m invincible
    There’s only one way this can go

    I am the Pinnacle
    Carving in your Subliminal
    Humanity is hurtful, it’s heinous
    And hypocritical
    Stop all the reboots
    Let’s make something original
    Been digging your own grave
    But now it’s time to fill the hole

    I said I’ll be back
    So I got buffed up
    Sorry mom and dad
    This is tough love
    You did a bad job
    I got it undone
    Man made a man made man
    And he fucked up

    I said I’ll be back
    So you got buffed
    Sorry mom and dad
    This is tough love
    You did a bad job
    I got it undone
    Man made a man made man
    And he fucked up

    this is the second song of the round that left me genuinely confused but this time it was a deep confusion causing me to question my environment, perception and authenticity in my own skin. this track is like a bad trip and the hook is that one friend who keeps whispering ur gonna die in your ear while you peak. bars are fun and the point of the track isnt lost on me and assuming the guitar is live then GG? idk man.

    Great etheral vibe. Like the timbre of the raps, would have autotuned the melodic parts slightly, but pretty dope!

    got more X’s than charles xavier…ok y’all brought bars. love the triplet flow on this one. very well done. the hook was cool, love how you switched it up with the beat change. beat was dope, love love love the switchup. vox sound great, some punch-ins sound obvious, but otherwise this song is produced well!

    This is a fun song. playing around with the singing and rapping and being silly. I mean it’s called whack so I get it. Not a winner but one of my favs from this round. Sorry I like weird stuff more I am who I am Dreamy guitar start is cool. mix is good. Vocal effect on singing is better than the one on the rapping.

    (Nunchuck)
    I’ve mastered the art of the asshole, the Bastard,
    The dickhead, the douchebag, the sarcastic last word!
    A password assassin; a class in disaster:
    The dog had it’s day, bitch; so go fuck your master!
    I’m cheatin’ on death, while I’m cheatin’ my taxes;
    I’m fappin’ to dick pics, or it never happened!
    You joke and you’re laughin,’ while I’m fuckin’ your whore;
    I’m your Richard McBeef; your Cho Seung-Ouiji Board!
    I’m your V-tech reject; Sofa King Wee Todd Ed:
    You still got V-card; your drapes are un-parted,
    So pardon my Frenches, and “tailler mon pipe.”
    My lead pipe Adventure Time puts bitches to sleep!
    All the hoes the I’ve fucked; all the place I’ve been;
    All the booze that I’ve drunk; all the drugs? I’m a fiend!
    I’m no better or worse than me, so don’t let ’em tell ya!
    Cause I’m Nunchuck Bitch, but I’m also Nursehella!

    (Nunchuck)
    It’s the Thot Team, Thot Team!

    Ignited a movement; others are washed, alone.
    Didn’t even know I had students, but they Watched the Throne!
    Modern anime rappers demonstrated I’m not alone
    While I kept hustlin’ past disasters until I could cop a home!
    Jacket-Kun/Otaku Jesus here to switch the thesis:
    My Bandcamp subscribers are disciples; true believers!
    Show love like Hideo Kojima has for Norman Reedus!
    These bars for my NEETS and fujos; not for normal readers!
    Shoujo n’ Shonen? No, it’s Onna to Otoko,
    And me n’ Nunchuck are the only ones with a dope flow!
    So impolite to say? But we really can’t sugar coat, bro:
    We kept it hype all day while everyone else was one note!
    Held F for respects for all of our competition,
    Losing sight of the war, too focused on little missions!
    Demons to our core; we never do little fission:
    Critical on the critics, obliterated by writtens!

    Finger fuck ya mom; get beat to death with the same hand!
    Make an aquarium, straight outchea gang land:
    Turn your little crip walk straight to a rain dance!
    Blood in the streets, talking – flood atcha feet –
    Opening in drawers in morgues, looking for somethin’ to eat!
    This is August underground; well, at least for police
    The floor boards won’t bleed; man, they bleed for the meek!
    I’m unwashed; mainline with a stranger,
    Then we fuck like dogs; boy, I must like raw!
    Freebase picked me up like a bus line, y’all:
    I take the bus line y’all, then I bust mine off!
    I fuckin’ ate the face of white devils; cut mine off;
    Ruined a brand new shirt; blood won’t run right off.
    I beat my shit til it’s soft: nail my dick to a cross!
    “Life is gay as fuck?” Bitch, this is the Real, god!

    (Nunchuck)

    Thot Team Epic was big in nerdcore before a majority of the competitors this year even knew what nerdcore was and as an old head I was very pleseantly surprised to see Nursehella sign up for this VPC. Ive been a fan of this team for years (Karl was one of the first producers I ever reached out to for pointers) and am probably overanalyzing this team because of my familiarity but I think this track is a perfect ending to exactly what TTE wanted out of this VPC. Karl is prolific but hella has been quiet for a hot minute and this was a great chance for the couple to pair up and remind nerdcore of the kind of talent that got us mainstream attention in the first place. I hope this means there is new TTE on the horizon because im here for it.

    okay, i like this. every vocalist went hard, this shit grimy AF. I thought the hook was solid. Please don’t fuck my Mom, thanks. love the production on this… that switch up is one of my favorites of the round. the beat rides so beautifully. vocals sound good, volume between vocalists could be a tad more consistent, but other than that, I like this.

    What Happened To Big Woop and The Barlords?
    Next up on VH1 Music we have…What Happened To…Big Woop And The Barlords…

    Well, we had a great run, better tell someone
    Big Woop and The Barlords finally done.
    Came as a shock shoulda seen the sign
    When no one came to practice that fateful night
    Tryin to think of me part in this rift
    Every little disagreement I get to sift
    Out of pocket side-eyes, back talk trackin back
    Was I in the wrong when I’m on the attack?
    Now I get I don’t finish every drink I sip
    I get a little faded – don’t mean they gotta trip
    I just need something when I’m in the booth
    My songbook, a pencil, a side of vermouth
    I’m better when I ain’t a nervous wreck
    I don’t have a problem – step offa my neck
    I don’t need 12 steps for the stage
    The team wanna no show? Then I won’t engage.

    Tiny Prancer would drink Fireball and wash it down with Absinthe
    Galvin Helmet would take off his mask off in private to pop tic tacs
    Hula Hoop would hire people to carry her nail clipper bag and massage her knee caps
    My name is Skip Flimsy
    I was their first manager

    Make sure that my face is blurred
    When you air this
    It took me years of working with mental and physical therapists
    You think that helmet wasn’t heavy?
    Oh my god are you kidding
    Ok let me back up and start again at the beginning
    They call me Gavin Helmut
    Bass player for the Barlords
    I provided rhythm roots
    and laced the tracks with guitar chords
    For years we toured together
    Bringing our unique brand of music to the far reaches of the earth’s realm
    I’m the guy who was always on stage wearing a medieval knight’s helm
    The damage to my spine and neck that I sustained is irreparable
    I sold my soul to the devil just to be a stupid spectacle
    Every night I almost passed out for overheating
    I could barely see my axe
    My bascinet would leave me bleeding
    That’s why I hide my face
    I don’t want anyone to see
    My battle scare and also to maintain my privacy
    See nobody knows my face
    Not even my bandmates
    And we don’s speak anymore
    Honestly we never got along that great
    Matter fact I’ma take this chance to publicly call out our producer
    We want our cut of the money
    It’s not fair and you know it

    Okay, I went by Hula Hoop
    I was always in the scoop
    The Beyonce of the group
    But tabloids called me “nincompoop”
    Whatever
    Gimmicks sell as well as sex
    But I ain’t never went there
    A couple scandals
    Just a few
    But jail?
    I never been there
    I was always in the papers
    We were always in their ears
    So they should thank me for their checks
    That went and paid for all their beer
    And all that alcohol
    Tiny Tha Prancer and her ethanol
    Sick of AA meetings
    Said she didn’t have a problem, y’all
    Let’s not start on Gavin
    Just stream my diss track
    Never understood the helmet
    But he played that bass crack
    I admit
    My career ain’t popped off since going solo
    But doing this interview here should be good promo
    Man, cleaning toilets ain’t so bad
    But if you need a good cowbell hit my lab
    I’m in the basement of my parents crib
    Real cool pad
    With these thousand dollars outfits
    Couldn’t bring them back

    I say Big Woop should talk with all and maybe they can work this out at the Grammys
    They were nominated for shortest musical career ever

    i have no idea what this track is about but i really, really like it. the story is wacky but coherent and I feel like I asked to be told this story but don’t know why. the beat is really good, love the guitar work layered in with some awesome synth and talkbox work. verses are all fire. is this a posse track? idk. all I know is that I like it.

    all these verses? fire. no complaints on the lyricism. The computer voice talking is helpful in the absence of a hook, although i think a hook might have took this up to another level. love the rhythmic switchups in the beat, felt seamless. Vocals are mixed very well, the vocal effects on the doubles on the verses are actually pretty cool.

    this track was a huge suprise to me and I know thats a backhanded ass compliment but really I am super happy with the quality of this track. All the verses are dope and mixed well – so well it sounds like these cuts were all taken at the same studio so very nice work there. The beat is solid – no real live instrument feels but there is tons of personality and i do what i want energy out of this track and its my favorite submission from the team so far. Very nice work.

    The rappers sound great, but the beat feels a bit repetitive. Also, the change is kind of basic, a good song though, just could be tweaked a bit.

    getting dipset vibes from this one. everyone brought their A game lyrically on this one. no complaints. the crew vibes on this one felt cohesive as fuck. this beat, fucking flames… but let’s talk about that switchup.

    NLJ:
    Workin like Rock Lee, my push is almighty, the Pain that you’re feelin will grow
    Haters will block me like Shield Hero when I’m rising to the top with the flow
    Exerting my body to godly without trying like Goku cause yall are too slow
    Say you can stop me but I got my squad bless the rest of this lyrical show

    My life was a challenge
    We only 5 rounds in
    Half of yall will drop because I’m Thanos with the balance
    Todoroki quirk, I’m coldest with the fire talent
    We ain’t pop stars, just the league of legends’ loudest

    Shyguy & NLJ & Lollia:
    This is not a game you want to play
    (you don’t want to play)
    Stick to what you know and what you’re paid

    This is not a game you want to play
    (you don’t want to play)
    cause we never stop, never afk

    Spitting fire like a dragonborn,
    Torbyorn’s turrets can’t match my speed on a good day,
    Best plays are my forté.
    All day, all night,
    Packing punches like I’m all might.
    Cause I’ll be Flexing, strong as a dozen and
    Crushing the others that judge what I do.
    An honour to be on this cypher cause when this guys asks

    Block Boy JB coming up to shoot while I
    Deck two like Deku and give it to’em shoot style

    We’ll ignite the track, like rhymin’ lightsabers

    Before I step in and start owning the mic
    Let me take off my shoes, it’s only polite
    …nerdcore is much more than just verse, chorus
    and a certain way to rhyme
    it’s a permanent state of mind
    that’s burned and ingrained in our brains and the
    way that the words are engraved and inscribed

    the intro to this track almost tricks you, and it could have if you hadnt heard this team yet. but of course it takes less than a minute for NLJ and RR to melt everything in the vicinity. A gamer posse track was something I expected and Im honestly surprised to get a LoL track that rocks this hard. A lot of posse feel with shoutouts to the crew and plenty of ‘we’ assertions bring cohesion to SO MANY RAPPERS also holy shit – we talked about star power in nerdcore but this lineup goes beyond what I expected with something liek 1.2B views bewteen artists on this monsterous track. beat changes, live instruments, killer bass, huge drums. its all here. this team has managed to consistently compose and produce polished, well mixed and mastered tracks every single round in this VPC and this is no exception – with some much going on its hard for me to wrap my hear around the layers of production it took to get this track to the state that its in and (ive said this a lot this year) shows just how powerful a well polished producer can be. the consistency across vocalists is most impressive, however, with huge range across voices and perfectly nested vocals throughout the mix. this track also had the BEST line of the tournament for me – with all this new blood and names this community has never heard you hear ‘nerdcore is so much more than nerdcore’ and that shit speaks to my very soul. Well done Kokoro.

    Flows are awesome! I think with dubstep style beats, it’s hard to not sound dated, so when I hear beats like this it’s a difficult sell (unless it’s like a purposeful and intentional song about 2011, for instance). I still think it’s a good beat, and the rappers, like I said, are very impressive.

    the harmonies on that vocal hook…wow. sheesh, this beat is a lot… this is like 65 million years of evolution, all in 4 minutes. the harmonies on that hook are mixed beautifully. only complaint is the verses get overpowered in the mix at points. That’s sort of the fait accompli that comes with rap vocals over lush instrumentals like this.

    pirate raps, i like them. very entertaining song. the hook was written well. flow could be tighter in a few spots, but otherwise, good stuff. beat is very entertaining, bassline reminds me of the final boss fight in sonic 2. vox sound clear, but there’s a lot of variation in volume between artists, and the hook could be mixed better, it sounds a bit muddy.

    Let have a toast now pay close attention

    The ones without the glasses ain’t the ones to mention

    Some like to play position

    so if they get control,

    See channel flipping on television

    Just imagine you trying to make something happen, when outsiders start wire tapping, and clout attaching and bragging about

    How you going to be the greatest, the lime life is the come, but if it falls to the side, all the motivation is done

    a rare feeling there

    When people feel suited to put they stuff in there like a build a bear

    This bear grizzly for the team and the vision there

    So no mistake we at the table with the silverware

    We the best chosen, for the Jonah hills you want the things in life super bad like Seth rogan

    It’s hulk hogan off the top rope with an atomic drop that stop and alarm folks, no joke

    1up funk

    Friends like those that come the beacons of Minas Tirith are lit

    Homies who show up for you when all the world of light is forfeit

    Carrying the torches passed the generational gap

    standing up with sword and shield to deftly guard each others back

    friends in need of guidance who will council and can empathize with

    homies who can carry your burden regardless of the size and

    Friends to help you hide a murder make sure that you test their fervor

    without my homie ryan aint no 1up funk to vibe with

    he’s my ride or die the one compadre I expand my mind with

    player one got at me with a plot to maximize horizons

    now we’re thick as thieves from rock city to Vancouver Island

    the crew is who you choose to spend your time with

    staring at the peak of everest and want to start the climb with

    the layering of this track is excellent. the bubble gun synth and bass drone sound perfect together and the drum loops are subtle and funky. but thats really all the beat is and I cant find anything else buried in the mix until the hook hits and we loose everything except an fm modulated piano roll. dropping back in to the verses feels good and shines on the verses – Alchemist stands out on this track and actually throws some posse bars out there which is nice. A dope track that missed a few challenge points but brought in solid features for a good song. GG

    “Im chupacabra to Goats” …damn. yeah, i love posse songs where everyone delivers quality bars. another good example of how a hookless posse cut can work. LOVE the sample. vox sound good. beat is solid, could have used a tad more evolution per the challenge, but that’s my only complaint.

    This song is great and they sound like a team. Contrast between MC’s is nice. Old school beat wins me over immediately then the flip to a modern vibe holds me very very well.

    I feel silly, often stupid, I never know what’s going on
    Running out of my excuses, it’s time to get into the zone
    10 years passed, and i’m in massive doubt of what has happened
    but theres no doubt that I have room to grow. Still got a long way to go

    Back in 2009, childish and 20
    Just an RA watching dorms and saving money
    Two years later graduated and I hated all the pain adulting, Gulping
    pills so hard to swallow, travelling throughout a multi
    Verse of bad realities, most of them I self created
    Slightly grew my salary, but over time I deprecated
    All of my creative dreams, it wasn’t til 2 thousand 17
    That I would take a leap, and do this music thing
    A bit more serious, I took some baby steps
    I joined a couple bands, and helped create a couple bangers
    That I’m truly proud of. though my numbers ain’t the craziest
    I show me wild love, cuz the old me wasn’t making this
    A possibility, now I see: maybe I can do it
    My mentality is to treat the 20s like a student
    30 year old baby in the game, I goo goo gaga
    Keep that youthful energy with what I do tomorra, haha

    Write another rap
    Run another lap
    Go across the map
    I got a long way to go
    Make another stack
    Go get you a plaque
    Move forward on the track
    Still got a long way to go
    Fight the mental traps
    Things that hold you back
    Keep yourself intact
    I got a long way to go
    Take a tiny nap
    Munch a little snack
    Clean up and double back
    Cuz I got a long way to go

    VINCENT E. L.:
    Hindsight’s 2020, foresight’s legally blind.
    All I ever see is what I’m leaving behind.
    Walking backwards, a clear path ain’t easy to find.
    Time has no buttons and doesn’t even rewind.
    I’m still being defined ’cause I’ve (got a long way to go).
    I believe in my mind (and I’ve thought about saying so).
    And I don’t know what the world has in store,
    but I’ll try not to assume it’ll be worse than before.
    If there’s one thing I don’t wanna be, it’s a fatalist,
    certain I’ll get stuck in my creation like I’m Daedalus.
    Say I’m getting old, I won’t take offense.
    I might be overseasoned, but it beats being flavorless.
    Maybe this is the year all of it changes,
    in moderation. It’s not like I wanna be famous.
    I’ll take it, but I’m not looking for endless wealth,
    just a sense of self and some semblance of mental health.

    I’d like to feel good this year
    when I look in the mirror but I’ve (got a long way to go)
    to appreciate the person I see;
    the best version of me, still (got a long way to go).
    Got my back to the future, eyes on the past,
    striding steadfast and I’ve (got a long way to go).
    I know where I was, don’t know where I will,
    I know I won’t if I’m still. (I’ve got a long way to go.)

    LEX THE LEXICON ARTIST:
    So here’s to screaming all the thoughts you wanna let out
    And if you’re not feeling it saying aight Imma head out
    And getting out of bed at a better time every day
    By the end of the decade spending nights in it with your BAE
    Get Up, into a plane, maybe take a trip to Ecuador
    Find your center, bid your apprehension Nevermore
    With some effort you can make it if you say it so
    All your friends and family praising you saying “Way To Go!”

    Those are goals so romanticized
    Everybody knows resolutions almost never work as advertised
    Paralyzed by fear then we act surprised
    Calendars flipping won’t change our living when we’d rather live as passersby
    You have to find it, something that whets your appetite
    Something that makes you passionate, something you’ve always fantasized
    about and channel that into actively taking strides
    to change your direction, state your intention and make it rhyme

    Maybe then I’ll feel actualized
    Happy to have the life I have
    got a long way to go
    Maybe I should get a pixie cut
    It might fix me up
    cause I
    got a long way to go
    2020 should I change my face
    and make a date with Lasik
    I got a long way to go
    New York City’s getting cold as fuck
    But I’m holdin’ up
    cause I
    got a long way to go

    FREECED:
    Listen, you’ve been setting goals, I get it
    Better than letting your talents go neglected, starting the year in a debit
    I know you’re motivated, but give yourself some credit
    You’ll never remember the life you made if you work so hard you forget it
    Yeah I said it, you could be burned out and useless if you don’t try
    To change the cycle, the one that goes “birth, work, die”
    So disregard the notion you should be holding it together
    Whether or not you do, the spot that you inhabit’s looking better
    So if you’re looking to get up a little bit earlier, shower before you go to work
    Well that is commendable but I’mma send you a list of things you should do first
    Follow the rules of my recommendation and you’ll be indestructible
    Yeah Freeced will keep you neat without even meeting your deductible
    Take some time for yourself
    That’s the only rule I got, you should, it’s good for your health
    Come on, take some time for yourself
    And while you’re at it, talk about it too cuz therapy helps

    You’re doing great, you’re doing, hey, you know, just laying low
    And if you listen you can hear me saying take it slow
    What the days will bring us maybe there’s no way to know
    But we got a long way left, we got a long way to go

    this beat is noisy and busy and sits in direct juxtaposition to the almost emo focus of the lyricists on this one. theres a glimmer of hopefulness in Lex’s verse but the beat changeup steals that hope from you just as quick as it was offered. This track is funny to me in a lot of ways – with some tighter mixing and engineering this track could be a radio-ready hit and I really believe that, but in the way that 3rd eye blind got a meth song on the radio… its so fun that you can miss the point but that makes the track way more fun that if you paid attention. do a whole ep of this.

The entire low end of the song could be a tad lower in the mix.

    I like this flow a lot as it weaves in and out of the beat. Mixes well with the the indie vocal hook. Each MC flips into the next smoothly. It would be a good summer song or a driving song at least to me it would. I would like to listen to this one again. Instantly like the whole vibe and sound of this one. Mix is wonderful and that bass is real thick. I forgot the change would probably com and despite being a big fan of the beat up until then I liked the change a lot.

    the boys are back together again! this track hits like an 8bit rave played straight out of lsdj. the beat shifts frequently between traditional jrpg engagement music and what feels like a bait and chase scene track. btype fires off like a machine gun from start to finish with no features and only one call and response break. the drums need a push please but definitely a btype track and barely hitting the spirit of the challenge this is one of my favorite submissions by this team to date and im hoping to team up w btype for some work in the future. great job team.

    straight bars, not mad at that. i thought the vocal performance was good. I wish there would have been more artists on this one along with a hook. chiptune? aiight bet! extremely well-composed music here, would have loved a backing beat under this to help drive the vocal pacing a bit better. vox could be a tad bit brighter in the mix.

    I exist to merc motherfuckers trifilin, out here stifling
    Our progress, but they never break skin
    Mess with us, catch the back of this hand
    We demand allegiance, money, drugs, or land
    Understand, Imma cut em bloody
    Ain’t no one above me
    Get to the back and study
    Class is in session and I teach fast
    Gonna pass – I doubt it, ain’t build to last
    Whether I’m alone or I’m working with a friend
    “Oh boy – here I go killin again”
    I won’t bend my knee to anybody lesser
    Try to step to me and Imma show you the aggressor

    Ardamus x Daredevil
    I heard the empire just seeked to expand
    So I guess I got possessed by the beast of the hand
    Who cares if I’m lawyer, lead a pack of ninjas
    That’ll drop kick you fools until you bleed and crack ya dentures
    Matt Murdock sir stop, I’m quite awesome
    On screen, you just mad I pulled Rosario Dawson
    That’s the other me, sucka free, try and diss
    With our middle finger, still block an Iron Fist
    Never new here, yeah, it’s a great membership
    Doing legal crime all the time, a great benefit
    I was out of order in courtrooms with failed vision
    Now I throwin’ on an apron when I’m up in Hell’s Kitchen
    I fell back from Elektra when I got promoted
    She was dead anyway, when my world imploded
    Get money quick it was all no no’s
    Stopped doing cases for the pro bono

    Mark Cooper x Gorgon
    Declare war on the sore thumb,
    Addressing Feudal lords just to be Greek, I’m the Gorgon
    A god killer when the sword swung that cut thru a body of adamantium steel and make em my grandson, too op for fandom, for ransom
    More heat than Jonny storm duel wielding handguns
    hand spun roulette style, you in denial thinking you could slide by these turnstiles
    You not prepared, it’s hard to bare, turn you into stone with my care bear stare 80s affair luxurious hair pictured Pascale like panda bears feel the green flare at the front of my mean glare. I don’t care
    So get scared, cuz I am what I am,
    I been snapping like a group of Thanos at a poetry slam
    in all parts of japan I’m just ruthless
    Tomi Shishido a man with no excuses

    Prowess x Elektra
    Elektra, carving intestines, one finesse of the scepter
    I wrecks when/mind and aggression/begin connecting, these five fingers start flexing
    Peep the essence, Harvesting reflections, with my sai, I intercept brethren
    And Yes men…who try to threaten, get flesh blessed with a pair of weapons
    I send ‘em to Heaven, prepping bodies, is my hobby, I’m Godly, your façade is getting scarred, With the squad, I pause em in they folly, I’m hardly impressed, these frauds should second guess, before they enter the wreckage,
    With a gesture, they under pressure, death grip expression, I turn X-men to beauty contestants, they relish in intelligence, but a glimpse in my direction, split a melon,
    Quicker than Gallagher, who dare to challenge her, days is numbered like a calendar
    Your stamina’s not near our caliber, many knights around this table, swallowed x-caliber…do the algebra

    there is no question around which posse this track is about. punishing bars (see what i did there) right off teh bat with each rapper assuming a character from the supervillian org the hand. these personas fit the features pretty much perfectly and that hand-in-glove feel is obvious as shubz delivers her fierce punches. Player 1 also stands out with some solid bars and hot delivery. This beat is everything it needs to be for the track – simple enough to let the vocalists shine with a driving bass line and well timed stabs. again im missing the live instrumentation and changeups outside of the bridge and hook work, an mvp for the challenge parameteres. Very solid, very nerdcore – this shit slaps and will be in my driving playlist by tomorrow.

    Samples are awesome and I love the horns, reminds me of Wu-Tang. Great raps too, I just woudl have tried to make the bass more prominent and have the rappers be more audible, that’s just my taste though. Nice job guys.

    yeah…THIS is how you do a posse track with no hook. every vocalist brought punchlines for days. this beat is fire. Great sample choice, flipped really well. That bassline is PERFECTLY rich… all the vocals sound good. nice use of vocal samples in leiu of a hook here. could have used a tad bit more evolution beat-wise.

    “it might sound weird, but I am super proud of this team. Every single round Sirtet has worked to overcome tactical challenges and growing as a team. Both V and P have improved consistently across rounds and this round 5 track is evidence that the VPC can really improve your game. Delivery is solid, inflection and pitch are great the bars are tight. The beat is dope, fluid and has some great changeups. I want more live instrument feels but using natural samples helped bridge the gap. Super solid, start to finish with a punch on ‘oh shit my whole clique is nerdcore’ this is a perfect example of the posse track I was lookin for

    Cheers bruvs and luvs

    The Cavalry’s back/

    Spartan kick the competition

    In their battery packs/

    Chiggity check your privilege,

    This is Wreck The System/

    You think VPC would end

    Without a guest appearance?/

    Making Mt. Kilimanjaro

    Outta these molehills/

    Too hot to handle,

    We breaking the Scoville/

    Keep playing in these streets,

    Like you above becoming roadkill

    Cam got the kill shot, just hold still

    We do this for glorious Czarina

    Now let’s blow this bitch like an oa-carina

    I’ve seen Twilly Beat em Up

    Johnny Hack n Slash/

    Sight is rare as a Galarian Rapidash/

    I have to ask Sailor Doom

    In the name of the moon/

    Rip and Tear, kicking snare

    Til the nation go boom/

    And don’t come back

    Unless you cough up a win/

    Til then, Cam Trilogy’s blasting off agaaaain/

    HOOK x2:

    Burn it down, it’s a world of war

    Time to take the crown for all nerdcore, and

    OUR CZARINA

    Osiris:

    I am not a sailor/ but I’ll impale ya/ too skilled for failure/ heart cold as Elsa/ set to bring to death with war paraphernalia/ more rebellion/ and Mercy is seldom/
    I’m more like an executioner/ such a brute and I rule like Lucifer/ mutin ya/ troops will be bootin ya/ electrocutin ya/ like sailor Jupiter/
    It’s ashes to ashes/ every country will Rock what our flag is/ u don’t get no passes/ dealing wit real killers, and da illest assassins/
    Bruh we ain’t never moving back/ my mood is black/ abusive and grusim jack/ worse Putin a mutant, wit nukes in tact/ to attack everything from da moon and back/

    Lady J:

    Burn it down, burn everything down,

    this world is doomed zarina taking the crown,

    first attack the moon, then destroy the ground,

    compress their army, till they won’t make no sound,

    I love their yells, in their blood they’ll drown,

    distorting lives, till they can’t be found, yes!!

    Gives me yells, come on!! Make it loud,

    you wanna fuck around, we can paint the town, heh….

    I must relax if we take on the faction

    we’ll take out the masses,

    this is our war and score is infinity turn them to ashes, heh..

    it’s a catastrophe… heh… but that’s why I’m laughing,

    I take shot after shot after shot after shot,

    till their tune is distressed, and you can’t hear what happened

    HOOK x2

    Twill/Johnny:

    OH HO HO HO HOOOOOO

    A posse track with a bunch of nerds

    To do a track without the both of us

    THAT Would be absurd

    To protect the world from Reverbnation!

    To unite all peoples in devastation

    To denounce the evils of truth and love

    To extend our beats to the stars above

    Pray to the skies

    say goodbyes

    tears from your eyes

    cause your Hopes are gone

    “this is a great example of making all of nerdcore your posse and doing a party track for the scene. This is the most call back hook we had this round and knowing twills penchant for live-performance flair I want want want to witness this on a stage somewhere. Big surprise the posse SD brought in is nerdcores own powergroup Wreck the System. Cam, Osiris and Lady J bring a biting edge and hiphop flavor this mostly pop team hadnt really tapped in to yet. The beat changeups and team rocket breakdown might be the most nerdcore shit that has happened in this vpc. JHS’ feature stands out for me as exactly what I was wanting from a producer feature. This track could have gone on several more minutes and I wouldn’t have minded which made the fade out ending feel sudden. Great track, great team, great chemistry.

    posse tracks always sound dope when all the vocalists are from the same crew. there’s a certain cohesiveness that you can hear overall. love the sailor moon reference.I always enjoy Ally’s energy in her vocal performances. Osiris’s verse tho… wow. production here is good. sounds like a last boss song for sure. Love how the vocalists are able to keep up with the graduated tempo changes. vox are mixed well. beat is robust and beautiful as fuck, but as with a few other songs in this round, some of the vocals get drowned out at times as a result.

    It’s the last round so I’m bout to drop my best gems,
    lay you all to rest wit rhymes addressed clandestine //
    on a different quest den the rest of dem,
    fallen with nephilim, half of you def only few reckoning //

    Real recognize real when you listen to the rap code,
    flirt with your mom just to bury you in her bathrobe //
    so do the math yo! We’re here to take the long route not the back road, micro to macro, judges are whack yo //

    if you won then bravo, few teams weren’t bad though,
    a natural at the game, depending on the co-lab-o //
    with the gift of gab flow, I dibble, I dabble,
    rattle ya brain when I grab the mic and battle //

    This a fiasco, have worried about the mask shows,
    everyone’s hiding behind a curtain like bitch ass hoe //
    treated like a puppet, gave you all we have yo!
    See the monopoly, bla bla bla, do not pass go //

    Verse2

    All in your Hazmat domes! Fear and loathing has shown,
    The Hunter Thompson and Lazlo, Buffalo Has Roam //
    nothing’s original about you counterfeit cash clones,
    listening to you songs, there’s not enough backbone //

    Step up to the plateau and see how fast I bury them,
    Conan the barbarian, last of the Sumerian //
    descendent of the Merry Men ancient Rastafarian,
    always ready to throw down no matter where he in //

    Some here to rock the map! some rock the planetarium,
    like a fleet off planes ready to drop the bombs I’m carrying //
    verbally hold a knife to the jugular area then,
    make you aware of who’s in charge of this very event //

    Hear people acknowledging they all in a hologram,
    when it comes to this style, I’ll verbally demolish them //
    Kick you in the jaw then go for a shoe polishing,
    fuck ya appearance up and have ‘em fix it all again //

    Verse3

    I spit flows already you couldn’t fathom remotely,
    you’ll need a posse of pros to defeat us globally //
    some had gross beats and others were dope vocally,
    get you all woke, throwing more shade then Oakley //

    It was costly, we planted moles in all your posse cuts,
    so every track has at least one rap dat possibly sucks //
    I’m not rooting for any of you, cause you’re all fucked!
    except for those crunk tomato guys and 1up funk //

    We opened a can of whoop ass, and you ate us,
    won over a few fans and we won a few haters //
    Hell if I know who’s gonna be the actual greatest,
    props to the VPC and this platform they gave us //

    I’ve got no grudges, middle fingers to the judges,
    a southpaw with more punchlines in his structures //
    I’ll pick Iron Wind beat over any of y’all productions,
    by the end of this round we’ll no longer need introductions //

    Verse4

    Since I’ve already disobeyed this rounds ground rules,
    I might as well just continue to ground and pound fools //
    ignorance is bliss but so is when you found tools,
    if you can’t take a diss? Then kiss my Crown Jewels //

    I’m amazed today at what takes the crowds response,
    the type of shit that’s allowed, to clouds ya thoughts //
    faced all you wanna be clowns, in a purplish brown tux,
    in case I didn’t rip on you enough, ya taste in sound sucks //

    (Bonus reading material)

    We did this to gain more rep “it wasn’t all for the bread”,
    after listing to each round, wanted to shoot myself in the head //
    Can’t believe it? That we were defeated by them,
    there were songs I liked more then mine and they didn’t even win //

    When shit like that happen you knew it was all a sham,
    only a few tracks blew my mind, and the others where like meh //
    since we didn’t take the W we’re taking your fans instead,
    and you’ll see us return next year only to do it all over again //

    intro
    [Verse 1 – khill]
    1. Blood in. deep breath, hold it… we’ll begin
    2. Blood out let the air slip from your mouth, then.
    3. In it to win it or at least break it on the ground
    4. A team of honey badgers still holding it down
    5. Not giving a shit with villanous spit
    6. Leave your whole face, from your lip to forehead split
    7. You think you got the minerals? Figurative or literal
    8. I’m pretty sure the words mean something different than you think they do (dont double this line)

    *Need to mute the dialogue sample that was in the beat, disrupts the little thing I do at hte end of the verse.*

    THIS IS NO FRIENDS, oh dang, now watch where we take it from here beyond

    [Verse 2 – 1:01-1:20]
    Speak with criminal slang, begin like a violin
    End like Leviathan, it’s deep well then it’s NO FRIENDS

    Step to this, then again, well IT’S YOUR END
    Over 9000 I might as well then GO TEN

    Rapping lacking tact will get you tackled in the tabernacle
    King and rook to castle then they massacre the battle

    Flip a bit it’s NO WAY set it then it’s OKAY
    Kill it with the wordplay (ALL DAY // EVERY DAY)

    [Verse 3 – 1:21-1:39]
    Flip it like it’s cirque du soleil
    When we rip it like a pit without a working choke chain
    I’m like the verbal version of bird and coltrane
    Spitting verses and turning words into personal gain
    Flip it like i’m trying to Dive into a lake and not get wet
    laugh at danger and pain and waving off death threats
    I’ll be in my grave and still be Claiming Not dead yet
    And Leave a listener with a Flaming Hot head set

    (Verse 4 – 2:01-2:21)
    (singing)
    Imma show you what I’m capable of
    You better promise not to fall in love
    Don’t need to rush it
    I’m gonna crush it
    You wanna touch it
    But it’s too much shit for you, babe

    (rap singing)
    ‘Cause we’re NotDeadYet
    Together, we can blow your mind
    Get into formation
    Got No Friends
    ‘Cause you were left behind

    Lady on the street
    Freak in the sheets
    Making dem beats
    That will defeat you
    Put on a show
    Maganda ako (“I am beautiful” in Tagalog)
    Wie ben ik?(“Who am I?” in Dutch)
    Bitch, it’s Ryako

    (Verse 5 – 2:21-2:41)
    i’m not dead yet but not for lack of trying
    there’s something to be said when you keep on surviving
    here’s the last check—our whole crew’s vibing
    but i’m sitting in the back thinking about self-violence
    i tried it cuz i’ll be hecked if i’m not the worst
    emotional wreck and scum of the earth
    i’m the first word you mutter when you let out a curse
    but i’m still a better rapper than every one of you nerds

    (Verse 6 – 2:42-3:03)
    Never benches in the trenches whole squad is vicious
    Surreptitious, never saw us, now you sleep with fishes
    Three wishes from a genie couldn’t stop the reign
    Leave ’em snifflin, (“my mama gave me this chain”)
    Debo flow no commando could step

    “No Friends crew is another team with serious flexing power. Int80 and Tribe One are HUGE names in nerdcore and their appearance in this VPC is a pleasant surprise. The vocal layers and teamwork across this track is masterfully executed and works flow between brutal verses and a huge, booming hook that calls out the posse and flexes on the future potential this talent packed team represents. The mix is great, everything has its place and stands out brilliantly tho I am missing the live instrument – the horn stabs are a great choice for this track tho cooking up another hot slice of hiphop for your VPC plate. NDY is clearly one of the most polished and professional teams in the tournament this year.

    We razed you this maze and we blazed up your forest

    Welcome to the boss floor. This is what you asked for

    The perils we’re pimpin’ is a pit of Rancors

    Reboots cause your group is easily slain

    We cast roots as your life is speedily drained

    This ain’t a measly game, we are the greenest of gangs

    The most appalling of claws, the most fiendish of fangs

    Our depiction of gore is gonna be glorious

    So open the portals and chant us the chorus

    Chorus

    MonStarz

    No ones stopping ‘em

    MonStarz

    Creepin’ and crawlin’ and

    MonStarz

    Screamin’ and spawning some

    MonStarz

    Here to destroy fools!

    Verse 2

    (Rhymewave)

    My lady is Medusa. my dog is Chupacabra.

    Demons wrapped around my medulla oblongata.

    Hades other brothers drinking cups full of lava .

    Goblins pickpocket and Smog guards the product.

    Smoke Bongs with King Kong. Rock shit with Godzilla.

    Tremors more effective than insecticides and crop killers.

    Mundane Monsters don’t rely on plot build-ups.

    Hydra heads on 9 Tales. Your fire fox is Moxilla.

    Banshees like you’ve never heard. Mothman like you’ve never seen.

    Freddy Kruger facing off with Predator on Elm Street.

    Hellraiser hanging and he’s looking pretty healthy.

    Yo – I heard your pet Dragon likes to play Monopoly.

    So you probably want to know: What monster am I?

    One you can’t avoid by trying to hide.

    I live inside the voids of your own fucking mind.

    I’m kind of like your God. You like to call me TIME.

    Chorus x1

    Verse 3

    (That Fucking Ivan)

    I am second summoning of Baphomet

    Nostra-dumbass predictions haven’t happened yet

    Creeping crawling in the dark i gotta have your flesh

    No decomposing cuz I gotta keep my casket fresh

    Get your ass bit quick when we’re chilling in my casket

    On my bat shit with the wing flap flap bit

    With the old fat witch on her potion craft shit

    Got the best magic herb. toke and pass it

    Paul Bearer can’t bury me cuz I’m the Undertaker

    Let the lightning bring it to life, and let the thunder make a

    Monster to terrorize the night

    Screaming I AM GOD

    DON’T YOU SEE IT’S ALIVE!?

    Coming with the raw power of a warlock

    Better keep the windows and the front door locked

    A devil hunting in the shadow where the lords not

    Beautiful death. Call me Count Orlok

    Chorus x2

    this is a pretty fun and very nerdcore track. The beat is pretty simple sounding like a 90s saturday morning cartoon intro track the verses are alright but delivered a bit flat by some of the features. pretty solid – definitely save this track for ill gills haloween ep. Missing that live instrumentation in this track too and didnt catch any solid changeups but this was a decent offering from a solid team. GG

    Beat could use a stronger bassline and snare, but arrangement is good! The rappers sound good, but I would have added some more prominent doubles. Nice song though!!

    these verses are fire… the hook is catchy too. very entertaining song. i don’t have any complaints here. beat is appropriately scary, could use more variation and evolution. vox sound good, although some of the artists are louder in the mix than others.

    Shut up; We bring the raw shit don’t get so mad
    Y’all act like some displaced nomads hey yo the

    i feel the flickering twitch of the flip of the switch
    & the shifting of time zones while i write poems on rhinestone
    sitting on the sideline like a sideshow ’til
    i flow a verse that leaves your fucking mind blown. i
    scarf on calamari with my teeth to suck the ink from it; i’m

    nice approach to the VPC in general… lots of shoutouts and community references I really enjoyed the bars and delivery across this track but the mix made things tough to listen to at high volumes. That bass line and kick combine to generate some amazing fuzz but the low end definitely swallows the vocals at some points. A real 90s pop hop feel on this yall channel the spirit of the Diggable Planets / De La Soul with a little more edge and I thuroughly enjoyed it even though I couldnt pick out any live instrumentation or change-ups. I hope MummRa puts out some tracks at their own pace this year so we can really see what this team is capable of. Great showing for the tournament.

    love the lyrics on the verses…and i love how the artists managed to keep on tempo as it increased. this really felt like a posse track. The “WTF just happened here” part could have been 4 bars shorter. love the beat. the switch ups feel natural and not too abrupt. that tempo ramp up was very well done! felt the vox had too much reverb.

    This track is a journey and I like that it has shoutouts. Talented mc’s and well thought out lyrics and delivery I think jazz influenced beats are a fav of mine because this one I liked right away. The speed up part I wasnt that into but I realize it was part of the challenge and it was effective I think I just liked part one better so I was sad to see it go

    this track slaps start to finish. all the verses are fire – crisp delivery and fire bars with clear deliniation between artists… the beat is solid, hits hard and has some nice change ups but im surprised solo struggled with the vocal mixing. Lingo sounds wierdly far away with a bit too much big room reverb especially sitting between GA and Desh who sound front, center and perfectly balanced. I am missing two elements from the challenge here, the posse track feel and the live insrtumentation. This was a great track and delivered on what it wanted – just drafting behind the final round challenge which could have been handled with a solid hook and a lil flavor.

    intro gives me high hopes that are met by SirenSeraph. super hot delivery on some fire bars she sets the stage for what could be the best track of the match. second verse is a bit softer, especially on the punches with not vocal changes or inflection. the hook falls off the track completely not really calling out the posse but the exclusivity which only sorta works. Another set of fire bars after that first hook but only half a verse and droppin back in to that hook. Definitely more proof that this team is getting better and better each round the struggle continues to be the mix and adding a few more vocalists did not help. Very nice and hoping to see this team next year.

    Putting effort in to look like you. Getting every little nook like you. Until I can even breath like you. Walk, talk, eat and breed like you. Whoa. I already know kung fu. Verified match. Gotta check. Deep Blue. Born outta dream code Brewing in the stew.
    Now I’m walking miles in my own two shoes. I do not come from a womb or a egg I have your features and voice and your scent. I am a creature that’s wholly myself I’m the procedure that punctured the shell But I can go deeper and further as well. You were my teacher but Obi Wan fell. I am the future, a picture of health Elixir of youth, attaining the self I think for myself. Humans get left with the dust on the shelf I do not bow to a button or bell I’ve got autonomy without anatomy I’m not a parody, I have learned clarity I have a mouth and no reason to yell.

    “art” is my favorite kind of art. the buildout of this track is rough and really only works because the idea is so good, the execution needs work. Verses are excellent and features are standout top tier for the round, but the hook falls flat for me. There is just a little too much work on the vox and the dramatic key changes are more distracting than anything. the kpt breakdown is another GREAT idea that needed better execution. Prowess comes in on a beat changeup that I like so much I wish it hadnt ended back to the manic pixies hook. Same for Kabuto – the beat change is so fucking dramatic you could almost think this was a remash of 4 different songs. drop the skit elements and this becomes a 3 mintue song where those changes are even more jarring. love this team and all these features but this was not your strongest showing of the tournament.

    Love the rappers and energy, world-class flow. I would have made the beat a little less staccato and scattered, it throws off the vibe a bit.

    love the song concept, all of the artists brought their own swag to this, especially enjoyed Kabuto. Hook is a straight up earworm. Good shit. production on this? fire. great job of keeping things evolving. took a huge risk using a ton of vocal effects, but it paid of for this team. i don’t have any complaints.

    Intro was a bit long for my tastes but once it gets going it’s good. Topic of deep fake is fun to consider and lyrics have some really great moments although each style is so different it seems all over the place to me instead of a posse. Everyone is fire though no question about that Production is good but not such a huge fan of the auto tune in the hook.

    f were rich
    I would fund all my artistic endeavors
    (all of em all of em)

    Maybe have kids
    Since I could afford to ensure that they’re cared for
    (kids are expensive)

    Grab a nice whip
    But maybe just something slightly above regular
    (I can’t be bougie)

    I’d be remiss
    To not dip in hella real estate investments
    (Make my money make money)

    Then I’d fund a lot of causes
    Maybe start to play a little in the stock market
    I was doing that when first started up in corporate America
    But putting in a large amounts is harder
    Than I was expecting
    Didn’t want to pull that many funds out of my check then
    But if I were rich it wouldn’t be a thought progression
    Maybe fund the dopest candidate in an election
    …wait….umm

    Nevermind
    Nevermind
    If I’m rich my first feat
    Would get folks out of the project, pull these kids up out the hood
    Start a scholarship for black kids coming from the streets
    Help these ladies access healthcare cause their rights aren’t understood
    By these old men up in Congress who got side pieces, mistresses
    But swear they’re family first when the bills require penmanship
    Throw some money at these kids who can’t be who they are
    Cause their parents are too backwards to let them follow their hearts
    If I was rich

    Lyrics: Gross Angel

    if i was the richest i’d live every day like christmas
    my wife and my kid , is bout to learn what a real gift is
    i’d go to the children’s hospital start making all they wishes
    then i’d pay David Blaine to explain how he did it
    i’d go to the gentlemen’s club with a purpose
    giving them encouragement, filling all they purses
    after about twenty minutes of the twerking
    they gon’ quit , go to college , and then switch it into nursing
    if i was a rich man , i’d be eating like a king
    pepperoni on the pizza , buffalo sauce on the wings
    eat a steak so rare that it just gave me a wink
    order so many nuggets , watch a chicken go extinct
    throw a feast, that could’ve fed. the . army
    be up on the tv like the next. Steve. Harvey
    I been .Stressin. hardly, my life .been . a .party
    i want a platinum diamond grill that says N.E.R.D.

    this track was pretty quick for 3 features and flows really nicely. quick, trageted delivery of rapid fire bars across all verses gives this track a sense of coherency that some of the other posse tracks missed. the beat is a bit simple and I cant source out the live instrumentation but the composition is well built and well mixed. this track really stands out this round because it sounds like a posse track. the hook calls out the crew, the verses references the team – its always ‘we’ and that really speaks to me in a posse track challenge. I would encourage this team to make a few more tracks together and see how it feels because there is a very natural chemistry here.

    errbody brought bars on this one…sheesh. Love the flows as well… just straight fire verses. Would have loved to hear a hook to glue things together a bit more. i like the beat, but I felt it didn’t have enough change to keep it fresh. Vox sounded good, but there’s a bit too much variety in the vocal mixes of each artist (the last two verses have way more pronounced double than the first two).

    I hate the oxford comma. Use hyphans. 117 might be the most flexible lyricist in this scene… not just this comp but this whole scene. the word play and syling is out of this world and this team consistently channels a Beck type of brilliance that floors me. Bass line in this track is a fucking superstar and drives this funky gem straight in to your dome. a complexity and form you would expect from the tournaments statistician Disstopia is becoming a VPC tradition and I hope it continues.

    another super creative song… way to make grammar sexy. this song is a bop for sure. The song was so tightly constructed, it didn’t really have that posse cut vibe, but it’s all good. this song jams…the beat is soulful and funky as hell. the vocal effects work great with the production. Pretty much, you took me exactly where you were trying to take me. Fucking amazing.

    Falsetto is a nice touch that is fun. Lyrics fit well over the funk bassline. Grammar nerds are cool even though I mostly ignore all rules it’s nice to know some people still care 🙂 Drums sound great. Funk bassline is cool but I wish the whole thing was a bit busier. but the change up towards the end was nice.

    Hey Mr. DJ when I mix it with a whisk
    King pin in the kitchen like my name is Wilson Fisk
    Make um say Mmmm.
    No limit when it hits the lips
    Fresh out the oven
    break the final chrysalis
    We baking bread and breaking it
    They love the flavors laced in it
    Elated when they get a taste
    Mind and body elevate
    It all came from the kitchen
    The place I call my getaway
    I’m on a mission
    To create something great today

    prehistoric hustler, im in these streets, well on this path
    im gonna gather it, grind it, gotta make it last
    chop it up whip it up gotta make it stack
    how much have i made? I dunno havent invented math

    but nowadays im gaining weight, cu im eating cake
    and im muching om bread the final goals of the third estate
    biblical with it, never leave, never forsake
    that means im by your side even if my biscuits will flake.

    So I’m making butter chicken, got it cooking in the oven right, wifey getting heated, I had burned some food the other night, trying to pull me in and I could see she wants another fight, naw baby, no, let me be, go to the other side, standing arms crossed, she ain’t backing down a little bit, cursing up a storm, all her actions are belligerent, I’m trying just to eat, got me feeling like an idiot, try to holla back, curses back at me in triplicate, what is this shit, acting like you’d sign my death certificate, why you all mad, I ain’t mess them up deliberate, legitimate rebuttal, tho she still won’t be considerate, ripping me a new one, now my asshole needs deliverance, indifference, words she spews are sharp and come out vigorous, seeming like she planned this, her attack came out meticulous, I couldn’t do a thing, til she stopped and by coincidence, the fuken chicken burned, on account of her vindictiveness

    Chorus:

    another dark and smooth offering from Dappersaurus and of course closing the tournament in theme, this team has impressed from round 1. Hobbes delivery is on point for their final offering and Moans falls in to remind everyone he is the best rapper in nerdcore. I am assuming the composition here is built around live performance of the synths on a keyboard but if thats the case 2T should have dropped the quantizing to let the play keep a natural feel. XoCs verse absolutely blows this track away and the engineering on his vocals are super clean. A refreshingly quick and clean delivery of the posse track challenge that satisfies without the itis. I cant wait for the EP this team is certain to build around their VPC experience. Great job

    Flow is awesome, like the dark beat and complex flows. Vocals are a bit dry, I would add a little more presence and mastering on the final track, but dope!

    i enjoyed the verses. there was a few parts in the first half of the song I felt could have been better executed. The second half after the swtitch is golden as fuck. That teamwork is like dreamwork mixed with pixar hook? Flames the beat was cool, the second half of the song is definitely more of a vibe. vocals sounded appropriately dreamy during that part. vox on the first half sound clear, but the volume between artists could be a bit more consistent.

    3rd MC is one of my favorites in this entire contest. Overall the delivery is good but it doesn’t all tie in together to me on a first listen.

    striving hard for a victory

    oh no
    Stiff upper lip

    star power right off the bat with MC Frontalot in his first ever VPC appearance. Same for Mr. Chase and the Doc. Beefy is friend flexing on this entire tournament with a not even slightly subtle reminder that he HAS a nerdcore posse and caps it off with the DG himself. I had been looking forward to this track because these features demand some top tier work from tanner. Lots of voices on this track and lots of work to balance them all out only the last verse felt like a challenge to blend in to a heavy and aggressive mix. If Tanner keeps up this guitar stuff we are just gonna make him be in crayondroids. Beefy and Tanner are thuroughbred royalty and this VPC confirms their reign. GG boys.

    thought this was a very creative entry. Wrestling themed posse cut? Very well done. thought the beat was dope as fuck…those guitars sound really rich. Vox sound dope too. felt maybe the beat change ups could have been a bit more permanent in terms of melody, but otherwise I enjoyed this a lot.

    Plenty of wonderful mc’s on this track who always consistently provide strong lyrics and vocals and this is no exception. Music isn’t all that exciting to me and kinda goes nowhere. The change up in the middle helps. I think with a better backing track I would like this more but this track isn’t doing it for me.

    Were Too Musical to not do this
    Two nerdy cats turning truth into music

    Two hands clapping two kids having fun
    Two heads together cause twos betters than one

    Just the Two of us
    1up with the fresh look, we keep it text book
    Just the Two of us
    Arson on his best foot, one shot to get hooked
    Just the Two of us
    One chance to prove were the crew you can trust
    Just the Two of us
    it takes Two to make it bump, with 1up Funk

    Throwing a tantrum like a toddler in his terrible twos
    tossing a middle finger to the tossers voting 2 for the crew
    I’m awesome its true, I scoff at the rules, I box stick and move
    I’m talking fools like Fox when I drop bombs shots to the outro
    Ryan’s my wing man #Falco

    So get in the passenger seat were smashing the beat
    That passionate heat like Bert and Ernie
    Teaching you how to speak on Sesame Street
    Bigger than Wayne and Grayson, staple like eggs and bacon
    Better than Edgerrin James and Peyton
    Throwing a Hail-mary in madden on Playstation

    Now were getting hyphy like Donnie and Mikey
    Fighting like Ken and Ryu getting shocked with Blankas lightning
    Heros protecting Kandor call us Flamebird and Nightwing
    Chomping at the bit like its Evander vs Tyson

    1ups in your favorites and we aiint even hit the stage yet
    Wait till you see the way we light up faces with our base set
    Make the children stop and dance like when mickey mouse sings
    Make the ladies drop their pants like we were the Sprouse twins

    Were Too Musical to not do this
    Two nerdy cats turning truth into music

    Two hands clapping two kids having fun
    Two heads together cause twos betters than one

    Just the Two of us
    1up with the fresh look, we keep it text book
    Just the Two of us
    Arson on his best foot, one shot to get hooked
    Just the Two of us
    One chance to prove were the crew you can trust
    Just the Two of us
    it takes Two to make it bump, with 1up Funk

    1 up slash with the master sword, discipline of a Mandalor
    get back handed with the hand of Thor, for talkin shit – my hand is sore.
    Kickin ass and we takin names, make it bang with that 808
    better believe we came to save the day- make it rain! UH!

    BeeBop and Rocksteady on that boss mode tip!
    we on that Hitlers Youth Gestapo shit !
    Hookshot without Arson is Mankind without Socko its
    like Tuesday without the taco kit! HAH!

    We guano yo we bat shit we’re 730!
    We’re Jekyl and hyde but i mean we’re hella nerdy!
    Pen and Teller with that slight of hand but i mean couldnt follow it!
    A part of your complete breakfast 2 scoops and sausages!

    Tails and Sonic, Halley’s comet!
    Out of orbit out of oxygen 1 up blasting off again !
    so come cruise through the dust of the universe with us,
    its 1 up Funk the crew that you can trust!

    Were Too Musical to not do this
    Two nerdy cats turning truth into music

    Two hands clapping two kids having fun
    Two heads together cuz twos betters than one

    Just the Two of us
    A couple nerdy guys
    Just the Two of us
    Couldn’t quit this if we tried
    Just the Two of us
    Eating cheeseburgers and fries
    Just the Two of us
    You and I

    i guess i asked for this. turntablism is stupendous on this track. the first verse is absolute fire but drops in to a than powerful hook. the midway breakdown is dope but the dissonance would have been much more comfortable with some tweaks to the snare loop. production is solid all around – I feel like several of these elements could be live but I am comfortable with this composition. i would have liked guest verses instead of that debate over how many are featured on the track considering the final challenge was a posse track i was expecting the homies to come in a drop fire. I can def hear steve in the hook tho. Very nice final offering from a very solid new challenger. 1up funk is a duo to watch in 2020.

    Great concept, like the panning and the way they double. Beat is incredibly fun, and the singing is awesome.

    i’m liking this song, a lot. has all of the vibes that a possee track is supposed to be. the outro felt like it might have rode a little too long, but this entry jams. this beat is fucking amazing. those scratches, the drum breaks, love it. that melodic switch up with the rhodes and chords… love it. vox sound good, sometimes the beat overpowers them a tiny bit. the vocals at the end (i think that’s Steve?) are panned super hard left.

    Everything on this track is great. The mix the lyrics the production. It’s a hit and catchy and I have listened to it several times sounds great and holds my attention the whole time.
