I haven't read this whole thread, but I'll answer this for you. This battle happened a while ago, it was on the same day as JC vs Chilla Jones. These battles were from the weekend of Summer Madness 2, I think the night before it. So yeah, while the bars may sound a bit dated now, they were fresh at the time (hence the big reaction they got).
^Same sneaker spot that they're battling it, same people at the battle (minus Smack, who I don't think was there for JC/Chilla but hosted Ill Will/Johnny). Same day.
You should've read the whole thread before you answered lol but good looks I got that
I gave it 3-0 to Ill. But 2nd was debatable to Johnnie. Johnnie had a lot of lines that went over peoples heads. Battles in this kind of intimate atmosphere shit all over live stage or GT/KOTD type settings. Enjoyed the fuck outta this battle. Ill Will >>>>
