Young Money rhymers Cory Gunz and the newly added Euro dropped by Shade 45 to drop a slew of eye-widening punches and flows. As the two traded verses, the differences in polish between the veteran of the underground circuit and the newcomer were almost painfully apparent. Gunz, who has more flows than ScHoolboy Q and can Sudoku syllables together in a way reminiscent of DOOM or Earl, emanated composure, the psychotic character that his rhymes convey coming through his motions in full force. Even when he slipped, Gunz either recovered with poise to spare, or wisely laughed it off. Euro, on the other hand, was too focused on delivering his lines properly to have much charisma, though the cleverness of some of his bars helped make up for that.
Both aggravating and soothing the situation: it’s pretty clear that Street Heat TV clearly edited out many of Euro‘s mistakes. There are abrupt cuts in many of the moments he starts to stumble. While the intent–to have a more exciting video and spare Euro some of the flack he’d get from sites like this one–was noble, it dulls the spontaneity of freestyling (though it’s all, yes, written) and robs it of its danger as a gauntlet for aspiring MCs.
