I was posting each video individually, then fuck knows what happened, and now there’s four videos out in 2 days. Round of applause for the work rate, and it’s definitely getting better and better. So it started with Dot calling out on Organised Grime, P Money responded with Real Talk and might have won the round, at least according to the people. Dot, clearly anticipating, fired back with his version of Real Talk, and if there was a street fire-esque health bar, then this would have done more damage than the initial.
I have to say, I was not checking for P Money too tough, and with Dot Rotten’s production alias, Zeph Ellis taking prominence…I welcome Dot’s return to the mic, however, this clash has shown me a whole different level to P Money, the strategic lyricist knows what the audience will respond to, and as a result, it’s sounding more refined in comparison to Dot’s rawness. Further proof was P Money’s Liars In The Booth, which dropped before Dot’s reply, and so not only applying pressure, this one took things even more personal, and might have even shifted the battle in some ways, especially with mention of a notable artist who Dot was engaged with, and we know people love to gossip, so her alleged infidelity with other known artists makes for more entertainment. I did appreciate her emceeing ability, so in an ideal situation, it would have been interesting to hear her fire back, but it ain’t that, and she’s removed herself from the scene, and now you can see why. Back to the battle, P Money was not going to slow down, and so he took it even further, with Did You Notice, using Dot’s scheme against him..
They’ve both clearly stung each other, with P Money now being clear in his intentions and discontent, continuing to mock him and have people look at him different, he even ends it with, “man a tactician”.
Just when people thought Dot was done for, he raises the levels back up, maybe even taking it a step further, and as interesting and entertaining it’s becoming for us, the more disrespectful it is for them. To the point, where industry alliances are clearly siding and people are being put on blast. I had no idea who Lusardi Rose was before this, and while I’m trying to respect the women, all these allegations don’t help, none the less, I’m not involved, however, whilst radio personality Sian Anderson chose to clear her name and shared some things regarding ms Rose, she fucked it up for herself with a strange reply, frustrated and hurt I’m sure, but along the lines of, Sian hating because she’s, “a lighty”, and well Sian, “is just..”, that kind of took a whole different turn, and all I’m going to say is big up to Lady Leshurr who intervened to eradicate any form of race or even shade/skin-tone shaming.
Fuck all that, and again, back to the battle, it’s kind of even as P Money has mentioned Dot being signed and a supposed pop move, on Facts, he responds, “I could make an OG look upset, talkin’ bout what did you put in Grime?! When for a whole year you was spittin’ on dubstep”
I found that line amusing because to my knowledge, P Money had the Ghetts battle, then I heard him on dubstep and a lot of people knew of him through that, nowhere near as disrespectful as the other shit said, i.e. Jasmine.
So obviously the “tactician” was far from done, and P Money, having slewed him on women, now hit the next place that would hurt, the wallet, with the new diss entitled, Bruck Beyond Broke
I have to admit, I was well aware of Dot Rotten’s ability, but did not know P Money was this good, and I hope this is doing the same for Dot amongst others that may not have been aware, however, it’s really getting peak. Continuing to mention other artists and producers, P has been able to use them and their relevance to further justify his points. At this point however, they’re both swinging at each other, it’s just about who’s hit causes most damage, and for the first time in this battle, Dot might be leading, especially when he drops another video in the same day, and this time not only takes it back to a rawer essence of Grime, but further raises questions regarding P Money’s credibility, with Steak Bake
Clearly it’s far from over, and while Dot is on holiday, it’s intriguing to see what P Money comes with next, some wild allegations have been made, it’s all bit mad right now, and while Little Dee has been vocal that despite the claim, P Money took care of him whilst he was in prison, and I’m aware that Dot had a line in Reading, so there’s hits and misses on both sides I guess, but more than anything, man ain’t enjoyed a back and forth for a while, amidst the negativity or disrespect, it’s one of the best displays of ability, and so for us, the spectators, we welcome more.
Are you not entertained?!.
*UPDATE* ..While Dot was apparently enjoying a vacation (though he’s insinuated it’s far from over), P Money remained on the mission, with another two. In this video, the first track is almost as if he switched up a gear..
While I Got Bars reignites things, Man Like Peri throws even more fuel to the fire, with more (alleged) insight into incidents regarding the two, more so a supposed altercation in a particular Nandos. It may appear that interest has cooled in the “beef”, it usually does until any physical altercation transpires, but this is clearly far from over, as Dot Rotten absorbs this energy in order to unleash his Spirit Bomb..
With the DBZ influenced track, Dot answers all the allegations and rumours, “How could Izzie buy me chicken and chips..when I’m a vegan”. As the smoke clears from the last dub, Dot appears unscathed and commences to unleash his own, hence the Spirit Bomb title, and if you’re listening then you will really hear the layers and depth, and always on a different frequency, Dot seems to have a renewed outlook as he even speaks on it towards the end of the track. I forgot about the whole battle and was enjoying the Dragonball Z references and realise it’s a shame that it took for this for us to really hear this Dot again. Things have clearly got personal between the two, and as neither have really taken any damage (to their rap game health bar), it’s become a sort of sluggers, and really opens up discussion as neither look to be falling anytime soon.
It’s still happening, thought it may not have the people as locked in, there’s still something to be admired of the ability and work rate that goes into all this, with P Money continuing to raise the bar and fuel the entertainment, this time supposedly obtaining documents, assisting to his take on on Dot’s credibility with Shut Up Blud..
Continuing to cement his point with the assistance of recordings of Dot Rotten himself, it sure does help emphasise his case, with the flurry of points and reasons adding to the onslaught. HOWEVER, how within an hour of that videos release, Dot managed to put together, record and upload his reply, responding with The Truth Part 2:
Aside from the fact that this was done within an hour, Dot manages to reply to the slander and attempts to taint, elaborating on the topics in question and points raised, including what really happened with his deal (and the alleged issues with DJ Semtex). This “beef” has certainly highlighted both individual’s abilities for sure, and people can only hope that this work ethic and level continues beyond their disputes and into their music in general. Though it has thought to be understood that all this is drawing to a close, it would be to no surprise if this is not the last we hear.
