COMMENTS

SYMATIC (SCRATCH LORDS) UK: 

i thought green arrow got bonus points for originality and what he was trying to do was so different

rae demonstrated lots of techs and embodied a freestyle jazz vibe

whaddat frog and ben had great balance of musicality, use of the sample, and tech/flow

stimulated. 

 

Edmarz- What about Ben?

 

 

i thought his cuts really stood out for tech and flow, and he incorporated structure naturally into his set

MIKE C (TOP RAWMEN) Los Angeles

 

Hi Eddie, I watched all of the Round 1 vids.

FYI - I noticed there are 23 vids for Round 1 on the website, but only 21 vids on the YouTube playlist. TGK and Nitor were not on the YouTube playlist for some reason. (I watched all 23 vids.)

My Top 4 for this round are Ghost, Illstylus, Ben, and LakLak. I thought they were funky, musical, clean, and skilled.

 

Please let all the competitors know that I appreciated them rocking it, and enjoyed watching them!
