Best Rapper Alive?

Front Cover

.. That’s the question that my fam Trackstar the DJ and TSS pose on their new tape, Best Rapper Alive? Royce Da 5’9″ vs. Lil’ Wayne.

“Since Jay-Z stopped worrying about being the best and declared himself the greatest, many people have claimed the title of Best Rapper Alive, but few as often as Lil Wayne and Royce Da 5′9″. While Wayne is a global superstar and Royce owns the underground, they seem to share similar taste in beats — “D.O.A.,” “I’m Me” and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” as notable examples. I went ahead and put together twelve rounds of Nickel and Weezy facing off over the same beat, threw in a boxing motif, and now I’ll let the people decide.”

Now, although I would never personally consider Weezy anywhere near the best, he has made such claims in the past. Nickel Nine, however, is undoubtedly among the elite especially with his newfound second wind, leading Slaughterhouse and pumping out one of the illest albums of ’09 in Street Hop.

I was actually unaware that Royce spit over some of these beats, so I’m impressed by the way Trackstar put this tape together as a one-on-one bout for lyrical supremecy. Check it out below and decide for yourself who wins.

Shouts to the man himself & TSS for the link, Enjoy!
