3.5........The Sweet & Sour Review
Dr. Death | Nyc | 09/03/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Well before i comment about the battle part itself.......The quality, sound, and picture were easily 5 stars!.........IMPECCABLE musical backgrounds & intros....Loaded with beautiful DJ scratches more potent than a venemous sting!....Lots of cool extras too on this dvd ( amazing trailers, live preformances by "Lifesavas","J-Live",,,Massive Monkees' breaking segment with "Rakim's- Know the Ledge" playing in the background!!)...As far as that,,this is easily 5 stars....Pure hip-hop at its rawest form displayed on the DVD's production effort!!!....The pre-lims at Chop Suey were damn good........Now.....The participants in the BrainStorm 3 battle is what gives this DVD a 3.5...Maybe the likes of Franco, (BS-3 winner) Bo-Rat, Surge Spittable, Orukusaki, etc..are considered "ill" by the Nor Cal and Seattle fans, BUT don't bring that sh&% here to Nyc,Jers,Boston, or Detroit!! You guys will frown in horror hearing some of the WORST punchlines i ever heard b4......Bad Luk's "you're wacker than a weed wacker" punchline scared me when the crowd was actually screaming loud over it.....The judges and the crowd are much to blame as far as how many talented emcees got robbed of advancing in the rounds ( See Illmaculate, Presence, NoCanDo, Hasaan, Frankie Riptide )...Basically those names i just mentioned are the highlights of the event...Personally, Presence should of gotten the win over Geologic(OMG this Asian kid is HORRIBLE :S).. But lately (even in Scribble Jam),,,the crowd prefers cheesy jokes and corny punchlines over ACTUAL flow talent....Honestly, i wanted to see F. Riptide verbally duke it out with Presence in the finals...Well all in all, this dvd aint the greatest nor the worst...Though i do hope the younger generation will come out with stronger and tighter emcees than what we got here...I dunno about all them internet cats saying that Nor-Cal has a talented battle roster lol :S...All these "Okwerdz, Mac-Lethals & XIs" need to stick to skateboarding and playing Tony Hawk on playstation.(no sort of mic presence WHATSOEVER in their skater apparel, and they want the minorities to buy their stuff too? lmao)..Like Murs said about them on "Served 3"...They might get alot of local love, but their style won't get them worldwide appeal...Amen to that! Bring back Craig G, Juice, and Immortal Technique!!..These doods are feared ANYWHERE in America with their slaying talent..hehe..Nuff said.."
