A positive of the Coronavirus lockdown has been seeing rappers and producers clash over social media.
Skepta and Jammer floored their fans with rhythms during their sound clash a couple of weeks ago.
Likewise watching the RZA in a sleeveless zip-up go song for song with DJ Premier over Instagram kept me up far past my bedtime.
As the lockdown continues there is a new trend on Twitter – UK v US Clash.
The Grime scene’s emphasis on clashes has left a big imprint on UK rap culture, so personally I reckon the top UK rappers are built for a clash.
What are your thoughts? Which rappers would you like to see go head to head?
Here are some of our favourite Tweets on the topic so far:
"If at any point during the UK vs US clash I hear "Gun lean, man gun lean...." I'm applying for a US citizenship"
It's coming home..
When you hear “Gun lean on the beat aswell” straight after Jay Z finished his UK vs US clash verse..
Barz for Barz
