For our last first round match-up in the division, we have New York's favorite (only?) Ciroc Boy French Montana stepping into the kitchen to chop it out with the So Raspy general Jadakiss.
More similar than they are not (besides Jada's obvious head-and-shoulders above rapping ability), both of these rappers gave us an entertaining battle full of redi-rock rhetoric. The audio crack of choice was Jada's "The Champ Is Here 3" and French's "Mac and Cheese 2". While both were worthy competitors, only one could move on to the semi-finals, and it would prove to be "the J-A-D-A" (got beef with the feds and the D.A.).
A savvy veteran, Jada's consistency in coke and barrages in boatloads buried French before the Macaroni With The Cheese knew what hit him. Based off (no pun intended) the strength of "Still Hatin'", "All Falls Down", Jada jumped out to a commanding 18 to 9 lead. 'Kiss asserted his experience early, letting the world know he's a "real hustler, probably sold a million and one packs". Get this guy an apron in here!
A true hustler until the end, Herman Munster French Montana didn't go down without moving a few bricks himself, hitting the jackpot on "Buy The Whole Thing" scoring a game-high 9 points and even telling us he pays "45 (thousand) a bird". Seems like he may be getting a raw deal with that price, but hey, what do I know? I flip blogs, not ki's.
At the end of the day (no Cam'ron), Jada's dope has to be weighed with the same scale they used to weigh wales and French Montana's can more or less be weighed on a triple beam. Sometimes you just don't measure up. Final score: Jadakiss 28, French Montana 18.
