    The best line in my opinion was
    “I had syphillis yeah, but you’re a huge dick”
    It’s actually
    The st valentines massacre brought you condemnation but I’m gonna sink you faster than your income tax evasion”

    Slept on this one for a while cause of the product placement. Objectively, though, it's pretty good.

    actually it was recently discovered that Blackbeard had syphilis. his flagship has turned up a lot of the tools used to treat it in that time period, and they were found in the captain quarters area.

    This was a really tough call. Both competitors had really good verses. But, I gotta give it to Blackbeard.
    Don’t get me wrong, Al Capone had really good lines and cuts, but Blackbeard’s raps were too on point and matched the beat perfectly. So, final ruling, Blackbeard

    I personally feel that Blackbeard won. However I'll say it was an incredible battle. Al Capone was hard AF.
    This is a really slept on ERB.

    Capone. Definitely.

  • Andrew Burton
    Andrew Burton 19 days ago +3

    Al Capone won

    He had better lines
    Better comebacks
    Better disses

    In fact the first line out of his mouth caused me to think he would win.

    • Andrew Burton
      Andrew Burton 13 days ago +1

      @3L3M3NT4LP4ND4 I didn't mean that his first line alone made him win, I just meant that I could tell his verse was going to be good as soon as he said it. It took all his lines to make him win. Plus, the reason I liked it was because his tone made it seem like he would beat Blackbeard without even trying "I'm a busy man..." "I'll make this quick"

    • 3L3M3NT4LP4ND4
      3L3M3NT4LP4ND4 15 days ago

      I think you're way too easily impressed if you think the first line just, automatically won.
      It was a clever reference sure but by no means a battle winner.

    Capone won this one the second he said, "i'm a busy man Captain Crunch, so lets make this quick"

  • Michele Jones
    Michele Jones 19 days ago +12

    Am i the only one who felt that the background action seemed to almost match the flow of the battle on who had harder lines? During capones first verse where he starts hard, we see his men in the background hiding their booze. Then in blackbeards second verse where he seems to recover, we see blackbeards men steal capones booze. But then in capones final verse, you see his men hire the assassin who then slaughters the pirates while capone slaughters blackbeard on the mic. ...........................
    ...... no, just me? Lolol

    That black pirate on background was probably Caesar, one of Blackbeard's most prominent followers. When his captain was shot down on battle, that man tried to blow the entire ship into pieces in a desperate suicidal act with a handmade bomb, taking Maynard's soldiers with him, but he failed and was arrested. He later said that was Blackbeard's last order.
