Comment: This is not one of the best Cage songs, but the lyrics are good, the flow is decent, and I actually like the beat a lot. And as for the people who say Cage tried to use a beef with Eminem to get big, did Esoteric not do that also with his beef with Def Jux and Fox News. Just sayin'.

Comment: Honestly, anyone that gives this track a 1 star is probably bias. The beat is correct, unique and like the other guy said bumps nicely. Cage comes with a steady flow, good lyrics, wordplay..straight to the point.

Summary: What Is Wrong With Some Of These People
Comment: Ok, how is it even possible to think that Esoteric compares to Cage. Cage is probably the best MC ever while Esoteric is one of the worst rappers I have ever heard. His sound is too simple and generic. Everything Cage does is surrounded by insane creativity, so who ever thinks Cage is wack either has a mental defect or got Cage mixed up with some wack guy like Esoteric.

Summary: A Dope Song Regardless Of Who Is The "better Emcee"
Comment: Most of the opinions here seem to be based on whether or not they support Cage or Esoteric. Looking at this objectively, it's good track. Whether or not you agree with Cage's disses is entirely up to you, but Cage's flow is on point, and his wordplay is tight as usual. The beat is very well produced, bumps nicely, and shows that Sebb is more than able to elevate to "super-producer" status if enough people take advantage of his talent.

Overall this is not Cage's greatest, but a good track nonetheless.

Summary: Bull Sh*t!
Comment: First off let me just say that I f***g hate Cage, I hate his weak ass rhymes and his weak ass beats. Second, I don't really like 7L & Esoteric either. But that is beside the point, this track is f***g terrible, firstly why would anybody want to use this beat for a diss? Secondly that doesn't even matter because at least it makes it hard to listen to Cages weak bull sh*t rhymes. All in all this feud is f***g pathetic and so is Cage.

Summary: Why Do I Have To Sumit A Summary?
Comment: Cage is one of the most slept on emcees in the bizz today. If he came with some simple sh*t he wouldn't have to worry about it. But Cage has never done so and his diss songs from back in "The Illiest 4 Letter" days were even for more than what first meets the ear. This is a good song and a nice diss- the recording makes it kinda hard to hear what he's sayin' at times but a true hip-hop fan listens to the words and delivery. Esoteric is some straight bullsh*t of a rapper and would never qualify as a true emcee.

Summary: Cage Just Can't Cut It!!!!!!!
Comment: Man, 7L and Eso got Cage witj their diss and like they said, he just wants beef with Eminem so he can get noticed. Cage has been wack as hell and he'll stay that way. He DIDN'T clarify sh*t!

Summary: More Monotinous Cage Tunes
Comment: Surely there were a couple decent one-liners (Royce 5-9 line), but Cage's flow was all over the place. He sounded like he was slobbering on the mic and drowning in his saliva. There was mostly gay talk in this with the usual Cage-braggadocios lyrics. Cage surely shows he is incapable of battling and if he continues making terrible trash like this, the worm-king should step down from the "thrown."

* I LIKED MOVIES FOR THE BLIND BY THE WAY (majority of it) ... in my opinion he will NEVER top agent orange

The production does fit Cage's demonic sadistic attitude, but honestly the “Haterama" with Jay-Z's beat overall was a better track!

Summary: Hot Beat - Wack Lyrics
Comment: Now that beat is hot, even though I
can't tell how Sebb sampled that off
of Jay-Z's "Hovi Baby." Cage is so wack
it's pitiful. I mean come on, he
says the word n*gga like he is black, and
worst of all he called Eminem that.
Eminem will destroy him bad. Cage needs
to quit with that horror-core rap style.

Summary: (shakes Hed)
Comment: First off, I enjoy Eso and Cage's sh*t, (more Eso) but all ya'll who thought this ripped Eso are on crack. My niece makes a better beat out her ass when she sh*ts. This beat is bull shit. Cage is sounding wack in this. Plus, all ya'll who liked this better than "Do It" all sound biased cuz no one said, "I like both but Cage rips it better." ya'll all said "F*ck Eso, Cage rules and Eso sucks." So ya'll sound like ya'll are all on a n*ggas dick. Cage ain't really dissin' nothing.

Comment: Blah, blah, direct blows towards an opponent whatsoever, but just a bunch of jabbering. If this song was a boxing match Cage would just be jabbing at Eso's face with a couple of hits and many misses.

Summary: U Gots to Be a Stupid MuhF_cka!
Comment: You really got to be stupid if your feelin' Esoterrible. He's hiphop for rich kids. Cage does the beat justice but I don't know about the beat- It's kinda slow but shit is str8. Cage is one of the most creative emcees to ever-EVER touch a mic. If you don't think so your Dad probably won the lottery and you never had to go to bed hungry. Fuck Eso and everyone he's down with.

Summary: "From The Same Box"
Comment: Sounding similar to some earlier Cage joints. The beat is pretty sick but slightly overpowering - some of them lyrics ain't coming through too clear - still another dirty Cage track, Eso gets ripped :P

Summary: Making Eso And 7L Look Good
Comment: I thought it was especially ironic when Cage called 7Ls production "trash." 7L's beats all sound the same but the beat used for this track was horrible. Lyrics and delivery were average at best.

Summary: Eso A Better Emcee Than Cage???
Comment: If you really think Eso is better than Cage, then you are on one. I like Eso but come on.
Name: Hanus (Posted: 4/22/2003 6:43:00 PM)
Comment: Everybody's favorite mental patient is back, and with his previous 12" ("Left Hand Path" and “Escape to ‘88") really not working this was a breath of fresh air. This Weathermen front man is a force to be reckoned with. Cage cuts a nice phat piece of beef for Eso and 7L to chew on. Despite the criticism, I think any true Cage fan would dig this track. The beat is just as menacing as Cage himself (props to Sebb) and with the upcoming Weathermen release, Eso and 7L have their work cut out for them.

Summary: Bad Beat
Comment: Not bad lyrics, but the beat ruins this entire diss-track. Reminds me of some Inspector Gadget ish. I've heard much better battle rhymes from him before even though he wasn't directly dissin' anyone.

Summary: Cage Rips Into Eso's Torso First
Comment: Eso is mad booty. What is the point of reviewing Cage if all you Eminem skin riders don't even listen to his words. Cage is above and beyond, he is triple checkin while Eso struggles for doubles.

Comment: This is possibly one of the worst songs that I have ever heard. I couldn't listen to the beat for more than two seconds without getting pissed off at how bad it sounds. Esoteric rips Cage apart any day.

Summary: What A Wack Beat!
Comment: This song sounded so much better on the Jay-Z beat (Hovey Baby). This beat (who ever did it) destroyed the whole concept of this song. On his first song it was clearer and his point got across. Now, it's hard to interpret what he's saying. Second of all this was supposed to be a battle song and this was not a battle beat, in fact I don't know what kind of beat it is. If he would have left the song alone wit the Jay-Z beat he would have been much better off.
