    Future Sales: At first glance both labels appear to be very even when it comes to possible album sales but.....when yo you actually break it down, it seems as if Beyoncé may have quite the task of carrying the label with sales for FHF. From a strictly sales perspective, GF ENT is more well rounded and balanced with the potential to consistently do numbers. Of course that will depend on how the label is ran as far as promotion/marketing.

    Winner: Good Fellas ENT

    Future Critical Acclaim: While FHF has the potential for lots of critical acclaim; GF ENT has too many legends to falter in this category. They are stacked with legends that have done it before and should not have a problem doing it again. Potential is just not strong enough to go against the legends of GF ENT.

    Winner: Good Fellas ENT

    Longevity: Again, potential only goes so far. What have you done for me lately? Good Fellas ENT has done a lot and I see no reason for this not to continue. Very consistent in this area. Good Fellas ENT wins the Eye Test here.

    Winner: Good Fellas ENT

    Album Covers/Tracklist: GF ENT has for sure stepped up their albums covers from earlier tournaments. They are moving in the right direction and have some dope covers. FHF's have covers that scream album and not mix tape though and that's the first thing that I look for. As far as tracklists I think both labels were very creative and did a good job of catering to the artists. Close one but the edge to FHF's

    Winner: Freaks ? 's & Flows

    Cohesion: The issue I have with FHF's is they seem to be producer/production heavy. Now this could be a good thing or it could be a bad thing. Do they have the talent for a few artist to musically carry the label? Only time will tell. I don't want to take that risk though if I was an investor. I see what GF ENT is doing and I like it.

    Winner: Good Fellas ENT


    Good matchup and good job by both labels. Two veterans going at it and it showed. Closer than it looked but GF ENT is just a tad bit stronger here.

    FH&F – Ibex has managed to put together a well-diversified roster, with a few acts who are capable of doing great numbers, numbers none of Menace’s artists can compete with. On top of that, he has a number of younger acts who has shown great promise of commercial success.
    None of Menace artists has sold in high amounts in the latter years, and the few wild cards are matched by Ibex.

    future critical acclaim:
    FH&F – Most of Ibex’ roster has a history of delivering critically acclaimed albums, and with the projects lined up, this could very well continue. Menace also has a roster consisting of acts with a history of great albums, but he cannot compete with the quantity of FH&F. Adding the age factor, where most of Ibex’ roster is in the beginning of their careers, this one isn’t really that close.

    longevity:
    FH&F - While almost all of Menace artists are veterans, Ibex managed to grab a lot of younger people, which will most likely mean his label can be a factor for many years. Furthermore, I have given him the two previous category.

    cohesion:
    Good Fellaz ENT – Menace’ smaller roster and his focus on veterans pays off here, where Ibex suffers from trying to cover all bases. While FH&H for the most part goes together relatively well, a few names stick out, which hurts the cohesion.

    album covers/tracklist:
    FH&F – Both players did a great job here, trying to be creative with their output while keeping it realistic. I feel like Ibex is a level above Menace here, and took more chances with his stuff.

    Votes goes to: Ibex, with a 4-1 Win

    Future Sales: At first glance both labels appear to be very even when it comes to possible album sales but.....when yo you actually break it down, it seems as if Beyoncé may have quite the task of carrying the label with sales for FHF. From a strictly sales perspective, GF ENT is more well rounded and balanced with the potential to consistently do numbers. Of course that will depend on how the label is ran as far as promotion/marketing.

    Winner: Good Fellas ENT

    Future Critical Acclaim: While FHF has the potential for lots of critical acclaim; GF ENT has too many legends to falter in this category. They are stacked with legends that have done it before and should not have a problem doing it again. Potential is just not strong enough to go against the legends of GF ENT.

    Winner: Good Fellas ENT

    Longevity: Again, potential only goes so far. What have you done for me lately? Good Fellas ENT has done a lot and I see no reason for this not to continue. Very consistent in this area. Good Fellas ENT wins the Eye Test here.

    Winner: Good Fellas ENT

    Album Covers/Tracklist: GF ENT has for sure stepped up their albums covers from earlier tournaments. They are moving in the right direction and have some dope covers. FHF's have covers that scream album and not mix tape though and that's the first thing that I look for. As far as tracklists I think both labels were very creative and did a good job of catering to the artists. Close one but the edge to FHF's

    Winner: Freaks ? 's & Flows

    Cohesion: The issue I have with FHF's is they seem to be producer/production heavy. Now this could be a good thing or it could be a bad thing. Do they have the talent for a few artist to musically carry the label? Only time will tell. I don't want to take that risk though if I was an investor. I see what GF ENT is doing and I like it.

    Winner: Good Fellas ENT


    Good matchup and good job by both labels. Two veterans going at it and it showed. Closer than it looked but GF ENT is just a tad bit stronger here.


    Yooooo Ibex hit you with a "WTF" lmfao

    Things just been quiet but we'll get back on track, I wanna give yall an ending to this game cause you all worked hard on your covers. Ja hit me up about it a few days ago asking the same thing. Gonna see what I can do about getting the rest of the votes for this round today.

    If I have to get a vote up ill do it.

    First of all congrats to the posters for their hard work. These are two very impressive labels. So allow me to give my opinion by comparing them.

    NAME OF THE LABElS : THEY ARE EVEN. Imo the label names hit both underground and mainstream.

    The Rosters : we are facing a generation shock!!! Unfortunately to Menace cause they dont guarantee any LONGEVITY at all !!! Has he included some strong young bloods in the mix and his label roster would have beaten Ibex 's easily.

    So ibex has won in this domain.

    The ALBUMS COVERS :
    the covers are very very outstanding. So its even imo.


    The SALES : Menace gonna sell hard and even harder if he plays the ' last album' card. But i highly doubt that he will keep on with that roster for a long time.

    that leads us to

    LONGEVITY : an important PILLAR of one 's label imo. And as aformentioned Menace has put all his eggs into the Vets basket !!! Why ?
    Its like the Spurs without Danny green and Khowai Leonard.
    easy win for Ibex in that departement.


    To conclude we have two good labels. Yet my vote goes to Ibex since hes has not commited the STRATEGIC MISTAKE of having a 'Vet only ' roster.
    Of course menace can rebuild in the future. But its a big gamble.

    Imo

    Winner : IBEX

    Peace

    Aight here we go.. I've decided to toss in a vote even though I said originally I didnt wanna drop a vote for any of the bigger match ups i guess im goin to, we need some closure here so that we can move on to the final round and wrap this thing up.

    Future Sales - I'm giving it to FH&F for obvious reasons.. @Ibex has put together a hell of a roster and I see many of his artist having no problem when it comes to outselling those that are on @_Menace_ label. Menace has a few artist who will rake in sales for his label but I just don't see them being able to over power the roster that Ibex has in this category..

    Future Critical Acclaim - After overlooking the talent on both labels again I actually changed my vote multiple times so I just wanna say that this category was actually a lot closer than originally thought and I personally couldnt choose a winner here UNLESS.. I turned to the numbers and since FH&F has a bigger roster that means his artist have a greater chance of putting out future critically acclaimed projects. Plus I really don't see Kurupt or AZ putting out anything thats gonna be praised as criticially acclaimed.

    Longevity - Its only right that Good Fellas ENT walks away with this one.. they've been in the game a long time and some of them I don't see going away anytime soon. When it comes to the artist on FH&F its kinda hard to tell with some of them because their so new to the game.. hell 10 years from now who knows where they will be? I had to give it to Good Fellas because like I said we can already expect those artist to be around down the line.

    Album Covers/Tracklist - Man as far as tracklisting goes I think you both did good with that.. the only thing I didnt like was the One Nation project that Menace put together, I could never see that happening.. it looks like more of a mixtape that someone would submit to Datpiff. Kanye doesn't fit in with those artist and I'm not sure how I feel about Nas being a part of it either. When it comes to covers FH&F cover art was dope as always.. like @nillerthekid said, if you look at his covers they could really pass for actual album covers. Menace did great with his covers as well but the Cube cover & the One Nation cover could have been better in my opinion. I'm giving it to FH&F

    Cohesion - I can see what both labels were trying to accomplish with their rosters and I like what I've seen from both. Menace stuck to the experienced artist while Ibex decided to put his faith in a new generation of artist while also managing to mix in a few who have been around for a while and have proven themselves. This category is really close and therefore im calling it a TIE.

    Overall.. Freak Hos & Flows takes it and @Ibex will be moving on to the finals to face @Sion. Congrats Ibex!

    Menace thanks for playing again bruh, you did great in this game and I really was looking forward to a show down between you and @Sion in the finals.. I think your long over due for a trip to the finals and that should just be motivation for you to improve on some things before the next game. You really stepped it up with your covers and tracklistings this year and you can only get better from here on out.. My only advice to you is to step outside of the box a little bit bruh, don't be afraid to switch it up when it comes to the artist on your label.. In my opinion thats something that has hurt you in every game. Its almost as if you rely on the same artist each and every time and those artist aren't gettin you to the finals bruh because not all judges are feeling them. You gotta switch it up a little bit.
