I wanted to give these battles a fair judgement, so I have watched this one multiple times. So, to get straight to the point, I give the win to Shotgun Suge 2-1. I enjoyed this battle a lot. Now let me break it down. Suge clearly got the first round. Saga wasn’t too comfortable in the first round and Suge big bodied that round. People are saying that the 2nd round is debatable, but guess what……. It’s not. Suge got the 2nd round too. I agree that Saga was lyrically better than Suge, but this is a BATTLE and it takes more than bars to win. But, Saga was way more comfortable in this round and he was landing some shots, but Suge kept the consistency from the first round and got this round. Saga won the 3rd round. His performance was up to par and his bars were connecting.
Surprisingly, I have heard a lot of people say that Saga won this battle. The main reason I keep hearing is that Saga had more bars. Saga did have more bars, but you gotta keep in mind that this is a BATTLE. If you show up to a gun battle, the person with the most bullets isn’t automatically the winner; the person who lands the shots is the winner, and that is what Shotgun Suge did. His shots were connecting. Saga’s shots didn’t really start connecting until the 2nd round. Also, performance is a big part of battle rap. Shotgun Suge PERFORMED in this battle. He came out the gate performing and landing shots. Saga’s performance, just like his shots, didn’t start until later on in the battle. So, keep these two things in mind, PERFORMANCE and CONNECTED SHOTS. With these two things in mind, watch this battle again and all future battles.
