60 beats! Yeah I count things, what of it. This has been the absolute hardest battle for me to vote on.
So here are my top 4 in no particular order:
GOOD MAMA https://soundcloud.c...k-luv-ur-mother - this had a really good concept, a zookeeper getting high and flipping through radio stations (you know, that old thing). multiple flips in one! really weird and interesting stuff.
AreouTheAstronautMF - nice vocal chops, warm scratchy feelings all 'round, and two completely different sick beats. That last beat at the end is so good.
Scottie Royal https://soundcloud.c...-girl-2-stbb376 doing his thing as usual. jesus, what a good entry. Vocal chops are clean and creative… beat changes up a lot, it's all on point.
Billinski https://soundcloud.c...i/stbb375so-hot - this is my favorite just beat-wise: so mellow and pretty and flows so nice, but it's Billinski so you expected that. Bonus points for sampling steak sizzling. We should have a food battle one day.
Other outstanding flips:
Zanj https://soundcloud.c...h-meat-stbb-376 how can you not laugh at this? uhhhhhhhhh too much meat.
Twisted Brother https://soundcloud.com/udgb/stbb376 - just rocking steady. really good.
HUNGRYM4N https://soundcloud.c...d-chain-stbb376 - love those crisps drums. magical indeed.
baaskaT BEATS https://soundcloud.c...ai-tree-stbb376 that acoustic bass and piano are so, so nice. good stoney vocal chops, amazing mellow flow on this one.
Mr. Lion Strip https://soundcloud.c...fishing-stbb376 - REALLY GOOD vocal chopping! Fuck you fish it's TIME TO BE OUR SUSHI.
Mahone https://soundcloud.c...bb376-all-black - really nice and mellow. vapor trails all over this one.
slanteyez https://soundcloud.c...t-burn-my-lions - fucking GREAT intro. love the acapella, beat hits really hard, nice filtering on either side.
MNSTRMKK https://soundcloud.c...settes-stbb-376 - sick arp beat, nice spacey vox chops.

Pete Range https://soundcloud.c...-dawgs-stbb-376 - just a really solid beat. killer bass too.
Cheel https://soundcloud.c...ey-just-mad-cuz - love the piano chops.
JoaGymshoe https://soundcloud.c...h-376-thai-shit - he's on that thai shit! this was nice and mellow but it's all about that wordplay
Mason James https://soundcloud.com/masonl/stbb376 - crazy drums and percussion. totally worked for me.
Soul-Jutsu https://soundcloud.c...b-376-suit-high - love when that bass comes in. nice piano chops, feels good man.
even people who didn't follow the vocal chops rule had some sick entries. to name only a few:
Kzee Beatz https://soundcloud.c...g-major-stbb376 - YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH. this gets me riled up. huge energy here!
The Jackal https://soundcloud.c...evenge-stbb-376 - love this scary beat, that intro is seriously heavy.
CITYGROUP https://soundcloud.c...citygroup-remix - no vocal rearrangements just a really good remix. the acapella over this beat is just madness. RIP Wubbo Ockels.
Banizzz https://soundcloud.c...6-diddy-yogourt - really good flow on this one. nice heavy beat and chops.
MUMA https://soundcloud.c...in-love-stbb376 - this is a great track! just no new vocal phrases but really memorable. awesome bass.
m3eltz https://soundcloud.c...enspiel-stbb376 - i really like this beat. the fact that the glockenspiel sounds this gangster is really working for me.
miRSs https://soundcloud.c...e-lion-stbb-376 - this was just a heavy ass remix.
saadyah tzvi - can always be counted on for some strange, interesting flips.
ALRIGHT! so, this sucks having to choose one, but let's go with SCOTTIE ROYAL. This week had a lot to do with balancing your time between the beet and the vocal rule. Scottie did both admirably. How did I not think of "monkeys swinging in the air tonight"?
Good job everyone. It's amazing to see what yall come up with.
