$eRumble, “Behind The Curtains (Pu$$$yys)”
Overall: M

It’s ok…Better than a lot of others. Sounds like he used a rhyming dictionary, though.

HittMan, “Another Hook”
Overall: S (for cheating)

This is cool, but it ain’t a freestyle. It’s a song. Stick 2 The Script (pun intended).

Iron Fist, “Insatiable”
Overall: L

This one’s the best probably. Dude got flow. Definitely knows what he’s doing.

Rimestrike, “Roman’s Revenge”
Overall: L

Dude got flow, too. Sounds hungry; this is good shit.

Cultcha Shoc, “I Stay Fresh”
Overall: M

Sounds like Terrance Howard in Hustle & Flow. Homie is ok though for that style.

Steven Q The G.e.e.k
Overall: L

Dude is nice. I wanna hear him on a beat.

Cutty the King, ALL HIS SONGS
Overall: S

Sounds like a kid at a college party freestyling. No direction, and flooding the site wont help him get known.

Cauz, “Cutty the End”
Overall: S

Going back at cutty the king for “Ice Cream Cauz.” Lol. Some online battles! Haha. Nice to see competition, but I’ll skip this one. Whole lot of pauses.

Ace Cannons, “The Zone (Snippet Original)”
Overall: L

Dude sounds ok, but it’s kind of distorted. Heiro-sounding, though. Dope. Is it a freestyle, though?
