Shade! Eminem and Drake are two of the BIGGEST names in hip hop — but what would happen if the rappers put their skills to the test in an EPIC rap battle? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details as to why Em thinks Drizzy would only win if someone ‘wrote his rhymes.’
Drake, 29, and the “Rap God” Eminem, 43, have certainly created a legacy for themselves with their unique styles and influential sounds. So when radio DJ Ebro addressed a possible rap battle between the two artists on Aug. 3, it sent fans into a frenzy as they argued about who would win. One person who has no doubt who would win is Marshall himself. “The only way Drake would have a shot is if he had someone wrote his rhymes for him and he could rehearse them, ” a source close to Eminem tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He’s got great delivery that for sure. But if they had to battle and come up with rhymes on the spot, it would be lights out for Drizzy.” Yikes!
How did this whole thing start? Ebro explained how the rap duel buzz started to begin with. “I told Drake that I heard the rumor was Eminem was going to gear up to come after him,” he said on Hot 97. “He laughed. He was like, ‘That’s not gonna happen. He’d never do that. And if he did, I got something for him, too.’” Drake would bring his A-game for sure, but may too busy focusing on his skyrocketing career. His album Views is at the top of the charts and he continues to release popular songs like “One Dance” and “Summer Sixteen.”
Drizzy slayed with his last diss track against Meek Mill, who accused him of using a ghostwriter. “Back to Back” ended up becoming of the hottest club bangers of the year. But, that doesn’t mean Eminem wouldn’t hold his ground if the occasion came up (we’ve seen 8 Mile.) All in all, we just hope these two keep putting out great music, but we’d certainly watch this rap battle if it were to go down!
