      KOTD PRESENTS: VENDETTA - PASS vs K-SHINE



      Making his King of the Dot debut, California welcomes URL veteran and Dot Mob member K-Shine. Backed by Mook and Rex, Shine has faced down some of the biggest names in the Ultimate Rap League, Tsu Surf, Calicoe, and Shotgun Suge. A representative of Harlem, NYC, K-Shine is known for his loud style, combating his opponents with aggressive punchlines and hostile bars alike. After recently embarking on a battle tour with teammate T-Rex and Battle America, K-Shine arrives in California to take part in the legendary Vendetta event against his first ever West Coast competitor Pass.
      A problem since he stepped onto the scene at 15, Pass (formerly Passwurdz) has kept his battling sword sharpened. Always a crowd pleaser, the Fresh Coast representative hails from Oakland, CA and boasts an impressive resumé against challengers such as Hollow Da Don, Daylyt, and Philly Swain. Pass has also gotten the attention of international names, traveling to Sweden to battle Henry Bowers and Toronto to face off against Skelly. With this being his third King of the Dot appearance, hometown hero Pass takes on K-Shine at the KOTD West Coast Vendetta event. Will his laid back flow and creative rhyme schemes be enough to topple Shine?

        K-Shine took that one.

        Pass, Just flipped the same bars over, with different concepts. 1st round he said, "He'll Block Shine", 2nd "In another mans shadow", same concept just flipped differently. Bars about Rex and Mook, everyone has done that.

        i kinda agree with that but what about a full round of "password" flips - been done to death on pass plus the fact his name isnt passwurdz anymore, just pass

        In that case it makes the whole battle kinda even..

        I don't know who won after one listen. My immediate reaction was that the battle was average, and seems like it was over quickly. You could make an argument for either winning.

        Pass, 2-1.

        Round 1, I give to K-Shine. It was close, but I liked his lines better, though he was wrong when he had that line about Tupac being born in Cali, since he was actually born in Harlem, which K-Shine should know, being from Harlem. That's a strike to me, but I'll still give him the round.

        Round 2, I give to Pass. He had a good rebuttal in the beginning plus his rhyme schemes were nicer. K-Shine did come prepared with certain references that he had, but he kept calling him "Password," though like someone else had said, the name flips are old, plus he just goes by "Pass" now.

        Round 3, I give to Pass also. He just had better rhymes, plus I'm glad he finally talked about all the out-of-state rappers trying to claim sets... more on that later. Also, K-Shine's round just wasn't flowing right. He repeated some stuff not because it was dope but because he obviously was forgetting his lines.

        I was hoping that more battlers who are from the West Coast would've called out some of the East Coast rappers who claim colors, now that they're here where it all really started. I wish I could find my posts, but on the URL website before it got revamped, I said that any East Coast battle rapper who claims Blood or Crip will not be like that when they come here, particularly Arsonal. And sure enough, Arsonal didn't have on a stitch of purple. I think I said it in the thread about the Arsonal/Illmaculate battle, but Illmac could've had a stronger showing if he was smart enough to call him out on it, since he wasn't flagging or making a bunch of Crip references like he usually does. Luckily Pass had a quick line about K-Shine and the Blood shit, but it would've been easy for any battle rapper to set up a trap for their opponent. If it were me on that stage, I'd have involved the other guy and told them to yell out their East Coast Blood/Crip set to the L.A. crowd. It might not be URL, it might be KOTD Fresh Coast, but trust me, it's not all nerds in there.

        ^Took the words out of my mouth, maybe its just that Pass himself staying in the west coast can't throw out those words himself easily without having colors himself, but yeah smfh, nobody really attacked arsonal that way and he's had a lot of battles at the west coast already.
        Pass is great though, still something unique when his writing is inspired, easily one of the best real-talk rappers out there cause' of one simple thing, he's believable.

        I would find that sort of lame. The battles should be between the two battlers. I don't believe in trying to use the crowd to put someone in that position. All that sort of thing should be put aside when someone is battling outwith their own state. It's just my opinion. I maybe be gullible as i don't have any interest in all that sort of thing. I just don't think anyone should get played in that way because it's a lose/lose situation for the person getting put in that situation. It was like when Arsonal battled in Detroit. I don't think anyone should have pulled him up or yelled from the crowd. It's a bad look.

        ^He was just pointing out that its an angle that's underplayed but would be very effective. And yeah about using the crowd, dude they mc-ing, the master of ceremonies, don't underplay crowd control cause hip-hop's always been bout' that.

        Battle was average.

        Neither guy really came with any bodybag material.

        Pass actually did some rapping and showed versatility. K-Shine did well with the name flips and references to computer programs, but that was really all he had. The round felt really short from both guys, usually two minutes seems like a long time.

        Rich Dollars is a total dipshit, though...watching him throughout the battle was hilarious...

        It's just a trap that is a lose-lose for the guy getting stuck in it... no different than what DNA did to Dizaster at the end of his third round. What happened when Dizaster repeated "Canadians are faggots"? He got booed, and the crowd obviously wasn't with it. What happened when he didn't want to repeat it? The crowd cheered and he looked like a chump since he didn't want to do it, though it's clear why he wouldn't. But it was a technique that worked on Dizaster, just like it worked when Midwest Miles did it to Shotgun Suge (when asking him to repeat what he said about Proof) or when Swave Sevah did it to QP in the later rounds. Did you think it was lame then?

        Maybe it's partially because I'm from California and have a really good understanding of this scene, but it's just lame when I see all these people claiming this and that when they're in a "safe" zone (whether home in or near the East Coast or neutral like in Canada), but when they come here, all that tough gang talk isn't there. But I guess they either know what's up then or aren't as down as they claim to be, otherwise they'd have hollered at people here beforehand. I'm not saying it has to be about gangbanging and everyone has to be 100% G'd up, but it's an angle that could really murk some battle rappers and make them look like fools.

        But that's what makes battle rap nowadays so interesting. No matter what anyone says, you have to consider the crowd but also consider whether or not your opponent might use the crowd like that. It's not always fair, but battle rap isn't always fair either. All I'm saying is that while a rapper's street credibility should never determine how good or bad they are on the mic, that doesn't mean that questioning it can't be used against them onstage. Battle rappers have done a lot worse than that, like Shotgun Suge disrespecting Proof, Cortez talking about Hollohan having an STD and having supplied the drugs that got Bruce B killed (or whatever it was), Dizaster talking about DNA's parents, etc.

        I think Pass took it. K Shine did real good tho imo. First time ive seen a battle from him. Pass is pretty dope, but i fucking HATE it when he talks when the other guy is rapping. Pisses me off lol. Everyone else has the respect of staying quiet when he goes against them. Pass and Nocando both do that shit.

        i happen to enjoy that shit. some good scanty side comments and shit talking adds essence to the battle, instead of just two skill-sets trying to out rap each other. it adds an affable element to the tension in the air. i guess it could be comparable to fake blood in the WWE.

        the fact that the password scheme been played u say, i gotta give shine points for finding new ideas/punches thats havent been taking already like the easiest or least creative ones.

        Passwordz changing his name to Pass doesnt set him free off the name/angle tho imo,
        that shit resonates for a while
