Steez VS Patron was the main card battle on For MCs By MCs Battle Leagues July 19th, 2014 event "The Foundation" at the Olympia Ballroom. Throughout the past year both battlers have garnered attention as major contenders in the Northwest battle rap world. Patron spent 2013-2014 battling in For MCs By MCs, Alliance Battle League, a try out battle for KOTD, in the newly formed AHAT WA division and even caught a battle in Virginia this June. Steez has mainly battled in For MCs By MCs but has earned himself the unofficial rookie of the year title with an undefeated record of 6-0. The Steez VS Patron match was seen as the battle to determine the champion of For MCs By MCs by many in the Northwest battle scene. Steez came with his usual mix of aggression and personals but also stepped up his schemes, multiples and build ups to put on a solid, well rounded performance. Patron's lyricism, angles and stage presence were on point as always and the way he made the crowd question Steez's commitment to battle rap culture in the first round was classic. The judges ended up giving the battle to Steez, 2-1, but the online battle rap community has debated the outcome of this battle quite a bit with some saying Steez 2-1 or even 3-0 while others are saying Patron took it 2-1. Who do you think won? Please leave a comment.
