I am a Crooked I and Horseshoe Gang fan, but truth is Funk Volume did demolish Horseshoe Gang with their diss track IMO.
you really think they "demolished" them? the song was dope but their bars were not clever or creative imo. they spit about having more fans, having more money, nobody knows who you are etc. in the most basic fashion, while the shoe gang flexed their lyrical ability with bars. isn't that what a friendly, competitive battle is all about? who's the better rapper? either way, i think its a win-win for both camps.

Exactly my point Funk Volume actually had something to say in their diss track: Horseshoe Gang are broke, unknown, etc. Horseshoe Gang have bars but they aren't saying anything other than they're better lyrically than them. This is not a diss track, Funk Volume were vicious. "Same Day" is soft compared to "Free Meal". Lines like "Fuck Dizzy Midget Wright just for being shorter than five feet and shit", "This nigga spitting like his tongue's missing", "I can put a hole in his illmind", "I'm as hard as trying to deal with your mums passing away", "Yall about as weak as the legs on a starving person", "Yo Dizzy go back to Vegas cause this shit's too big of a gamble"... Come on what's hard about that and they're far from great lines, this is basic too...

"Funk Volume actually had something to say in their diss track: Horseshoe Gang are broke, unknown"

but don't you think thats extremely weak though? its basically an appeal to popularity/money. because they have more money and are more known, therefore funk volume are better or therefore hsg is wack?? by that logic, lil wayne and every single mainstream rapper is better than funk volume and HSG put together because they have more money and are more popular, and funk volume/hsg are wack because they lack popularity and money the mainstream artists have. thats the flaw i see in it. i also see the irony in it all given the fact that hopsin dissed/mocked plenty of rappers who have way more money/fans than him.

" Horseshoe Gang have bars but they aren't saying anything other than they're better lyrically than them"
correct me if im wrong, but isn't being the better rhymers the point of this whole battle? isn't that the point of funk volume's rap battle challenge, is for them to prove they are the best at rapping and can beat anyone? if being better than someone else in terms of lyricism is not main criterion of coming out the victor, then what is?

we could nitpick filler lines from BOTH disses but whats the point? the jerry heller n eazy bar, plus julius' sacajawea line were more clever than anything FV said in their diss. what quotables did FV have?

I'd also add that those lines you pointed out are maybe weak on there own but added in the middle of everything else they are solid... But you know to each their own, every line you listed is a big part of why I think they had a way better track..along with most the other lines

As has been said, I don't think calling someone broke/unknown is much of a diss...especially considering half the shoe gangs songs will acknowledge they're broke...hardly something that insulting...they ain't exactly acting like they are incredibly popular either. It would be a whole different story if they completely outclassed  HSG on the mic AND had SOME lines about them being broke/unknown but for it to be all they brought up apart from them being "R&B singers" and all sounding alike(which I can get, when I first listened to shoe gang they did sound a like, though now it's easy as hell to tell them apart...something about when first listening to them they sound alike) was just weak to me...pointing out someone is broke and unknown doesn't make you better lyricist in my opinion

  But like I said to each their own, everyone likes different things, one person hears one verse as simple another can hear it as dope
