JOB - Mac Lethal is a hip-hop OG. He's been serving up guys on the battle circuit for years. This other guy is a no-name nobody. Mac will kill him in whatever rebuttal video he makes.
I remember Mac Lethal first getting some recognition for I believe it was winning Scribble Jam(rap battle) back in 2000.
He's definitely been in the game for a long time for sure. I bought his first EP and was rather disappointed. Stopped following him and about ten years later or so saw some videos and became a fan again. He's stayed in the game and perfected his craft.
He's witty and actually trains jiu jitsu, he has lots of respect from me. In a physical fight my money is on Mac Lethal.
Now, as far as this particular rap battle goes, my bias was already leaning towards Mac. Mac's rap was raw! Very good. I was not expecting much from this Tom MacDonald guy but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't impressed. His counter was solid. Better? I personally don't think so but I think it was close. If I had to give a winner of this first round, I'd give it to Mac Lethal only b/c his line at the end was super hardcore, about his rap name being in his birth name. That was the difference maker.
