    Yes, I noticed that Skip et. al. were applying "bizarre metrics" to rap music.

    Only Dame you beat was in 2000, and that was Stoudamire.

    This is just so weird to me. In what world could Dame hold Shaq’s jock other than Rap?

    Maybe talent wise... But Shaq is a much funnier human.

    After two rounds, against my expectations, I have to go with Shaq!

    Shaq's 2nd was highly misogynistic.

    I think they're just havin' fun...this is way more fun for fans of the genre than 4 bar Friday and it puts Dame's brand smack on the front page of the biggest stage in the NBA.....Shaq will mention Dame on every show he's involved with now.

    The whole genre is highly misogynistic from my limited listening experience

    Dame's recent album is all about that life.

    There are different levels of misogynistic content in hip hop. I was just pointing out that Shaq's latest diss track is on the upper end of that spectrum.

    I hate to say this...
    But Shaq has destroyed our boy.
    Not even close.

    I’m old now. I think his flow sucks in this rap. Lyrics are fairly tight but his flow is choppy and sounds like he’s caught in some boring loop.

    Are you talking about Dame or Shaq?

    Shaq's vocals are all mush-mouthed like they were recorded on a goddamned calculator or something.

    At the moment its Rap and thats what this beef seems to be about. Lets just sit back and enjoy the Diss tracks before the two shake hands and put this behind them.
