Hiero vs Hobo: Who really won?

If you've been following this blog, you already know Casual is one of my favorite MC's ever. He's a member of a crew from Oakland called Hieroglyphics. Back in 1994 Hiero battled another Bay area collective known as Hobo Junction, which was headed by Saafir.

Wake Up Show - Hiero vs Hobo Battle
Most fans seem to agree Saafir dismantled the opposition, but I've always thought the rhymes were pathetic on both sides considering the talent involved. I'm not going to elaborate on all the details and circumstances surrounding the battle, because that's not the purpose of this post. There are already enough blogs out there with the play-by-play. However, I recently revisited the tape and couldn't help but notice the extreme amount of pause-worthy moments throughout the course of the battle. No wonder Del never showed up to the radio station.
Keep in mind this took place before Killa Cam introduced the convenient disclaimer no-homo to the hiphop community. It was an era where lines as flagrant as "you look so good, I'd suck on your daddy's dick" were even given a pass. Still though, some of the phrases exchanged live on the Wake Up Show should never, ever, be uttered by grown men.
Final count is 27 to 16, and it's Hobo Junction by a landslide. Sorry Saafir. Hiero wins, I guess...
