F.A.B. and Ars met up on the Sway In The Morning radio show to talk about the event. The rhymers also took the time to offer their assessment of the other's ability.
"Y'all really be thinking that s**t he be saying off the top is hot? That s**t be mediocre at best," said Ars. When asked to score F.A.B.'s freestyle skills, the New Jersey representative replied, "Off the top of the head? I'll say like a good 8 ½ - 9. I saw him in Sweden do some crazy stuff."
Sway later asked F.A.B. to rank Arsonal as a battler. The Mac Dre associate gave Ars a high-grade as a performer, but he's not feeling the Da Rebel's lyricism.
"Lyrically, meh. Performance is crazy," stated F.A.B. "Lyrically? About a 5. Cause he's not dope to me... As a performer he's about a 12 though."
