Eminem vs. Lil Wayne – Rap Battle
After three consecutive wins in the Rap Battle, Kid Ink has been dethroned this week by Eminem. It was a close one with Em’s ‘Berzerk’ earning 50 percent of the vote while Kid Ink’s ‘Bossin Up (Remix)’ received 49 percent.
Eminem’s ‘Berzerk’ is, unquestionably, the hottest song out right now. The track boasts a throwback sound with its Beastie Boys-esque production and a sample of Billy Squier’s ‘The Stroke’ courtesy of legendary producer Rick Rubin.
This week, the Detroit spitfire goes up against Lil Wayne for the next Rap Battle. Tunechi’s new track, ‘You Song,’ is a love ode of sorts featuring Chicago rhymer Chance the Rapper. Off his latest mixtape, ‘Dedication 5,’ the song features a shuffling atmospheric beat and Michael Jackson sample (“Go on Girl!”).
On it, Chance spits witty come-ons to a fly girl who “feels like Kool-Aid in a wine glass.”
“This is not a love song / This is a you song / I just happen to love ya,” he raps on the chorus.
Meanwhile, Weezy raps conscious rhymes about whether he truly loves the woman that’s he’s sexing every night.
“When you say I love you I stutter / I, I love you too,” he raps, adding, “It’s Wayne’s world she said what is this world coming to.”
‘You Song’ showcases the Mixtape Weezy fans miss so much and it’s a great look for Chance the Rapper who is a promising MC in the rap game.
Will Eminem squeak out another win in the Rap Battle or will Lil Wayne become the victor? You can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Thurs., Sept. 12, at 10AM ET.
