No Geneva policies
Atone for these atrocities
Your whole demeanor bothers me
A hoe, a leech, a monster he
A joke, a fiend, a mockery
A broken weak anomaly
A hopeless mediocrity
With no redeeming qualities

That's sort of my point lol, that the battle rapper broke down the opponents whole demeanour so well and articulately, i just though how do english students perceive this🤷*♂️😂

looks like it's written in iambic tetrameter. it's not hard to do, you see how there are exactly 8 syllables in each line.

Liked your imput so would love to hear your response to this lot which was describing his opponents quest for fame through his chase for the title using hell as an anology

So welcome
Don't mind the hounds at the gates
Ignore the mounds of remains and towers of flames
The pitch smoke, brimstone comin' out of the lake
And the sulphur shrouding your face
You come around to the taste
You hear the howls of pain from the damned, bound and restrained
Now being flayed
The sound that it makes
So loud that it makes the ground start to shake
He's now in a quake, falls down through the plates
Comes out in a cave, and all he thinks now is to pray
Opens his eyes and he's surrounded by grey
Looks down, it's the same
Shook as hell, couldn't tell if he was pushed out or escaped
Nobody around him, no body around him, no form, power or shape
Just doubts and mistakes echoing round and round in his brain
And how it would change if he was just down here again
All the hours he'd waste and how at your age a crown or a chain was his proudest of aims
He can't breathe, he's drowning in shame
He's now gone insane and can't tell if he's been here ten seconds or thousands of days

I feel like its more of an English subject than music. Sort of what caught my attention was how well these people wrote

I don't mind Soul (buzz off his accent as well) but I prefer some of the American cyphers to this stuff
