Iron Mic: Return of the Wack Rap Battle

Now he's the best mayne. He did it.

I am at a loss for words.

The good folks over at It’s An Infinite Cycle have unearthed yet another Iron Mic freestyle battle, this time between two gentlemen vying for the title of “Santa Claus of the Iron Mic.” I shit you not.

And fans of Marv-O will be very happy. The original “touchy feely” Iron Mic host makes a glorious return, this time as a judge. Check out the video after the jump. Continue reading

But what’s even stranger is that Mr. Irreplaceable isn’t singing in his diss track — he’s rapping. Limp braggadocio and lyrical clumsiness over the instrumental to Lil Wayne’s new classic “A Milli” after the jump. Continue reading
