What Killed Hiphop????

Before materialism engulfed the genre, lyricism was at the forefront of Hip-Hop and high standards created competition amongst the artists. As a result of MCs consistently looking to raise that bar, the art of back-and-forth bars between rappers sharing a song became a prime example of how one outfit could outdo another. Since catching on, this give and go style has been adapted by notable stars and underground upstarts alike, often resulting in classic tracks that set the standard for lyricists along the way.

In honor of this tendency to teeter-totter rhymes in Hip-Hop, we’ve compiled a list of 25 shining examples of back & forth raps, which is bound to make old heads harp on the good old days and youngbloods wonder what the hell happened.
