This year has really been the year of the clashes, whether it’s here in the UK or across the pond in America. We’ve had Chip going at Tinie, Yungen and Bugzy, Drake vs. Meek, and even Joe Budden entering the fray by firing shots at Drake.
Rap has always been adversarial in its nature, and frankly some really good music can come out of these rap beefs – just think Nas and Jay Z, Ice Cube and NWA.
With this in mind it’s no wonder that people were so excited about the prospect of Eminem and Drake crossing lyrical swords. Drake however put that to bed in style last night, by bringing out Em at his show in Detroit, and even introducing him as the “the greatest rapper that ever get on a motherfucking microphone.” If this wasn’t paying enough respeck, he even bowed to the legendary Detroit rapper.
Here’s hoping a collab is in the works…
