Uncle Murder Rap Up vs Mad Skillz Wrap Up vs Bekay Year in Review!

(Who wins 2016?)

*UPDATE: So far a lot of people are saluting Bekay on this. I decided to throw Uncle Murder into the mix as well. Are you feeling his version? Comment below. – GMS
Uncle Murder Rap Up vs Mad Skillz Wrap Up vs Bekay Year in Review

Okay by now I’m sure you’ve heard several people do these long end of the year freestyles, where they mention everything noteworthy that has happened over the year. Well, if memory serves correctly, Virgina MC Mad Skillz (you know, who battled SuperNat, had that joint “The Headnod“, was a member of the SupaFriendz, who were on Aaliyah’sAre You That Somebody“, back in the day?) Yeah, that guy, just so we are clear, made that whole idea up, in 2002, made it hot and since then it’s become a trend.

Uncle Murder Rap Up vs Mad Skillz Wrap Up vs Bekay Year in Review

Not that anybody minds! I love hearing different MC’s do wrap ups, with their unique style and take on the year’s events. But just to give credit where credit is due, props to Skillz for that. This year, he dropped another one and so did a few other MC’s. I thought it would be dope to battle two versions together, not just to see which is doper, but to see what they talk about. Do they cover some of the same topics, mention the same events? What does each have on theirs that the other doesn’t have? I decided to give local freestyle king and recording artist Bekay (from BK, where else?) a shot, being that he has been dropping consistently dope “Year In Review’s” every year since 2010.

In real life, the two artists do not have beef or anything, we are just playing a game. So let’s enjoy both of these MC’s as they help us say goodbye to the wretched 2016. Weapon (instrumental) of choice: Madskillz – Young M.A.’s “Summer Freestyle”; Bekay – Fat Joe, Remy Ma & French Montana’s “All the Way Up”. This should be interesting. Okay, fellas, 10 paces, turn around and come out rhyming.

Just for fun, leave a comment about who you think won, and what the best lines were.

Deuces 2016! Year be gone!!

NOTORIOUS (rmx) – Jazzy Jeff & Ayah ft. Kardinall Offishall, Skillz & Shad

NOTORIOUS

DJ JAZZY JEFF & AYAH (Album: Back For More) put out another version of this, this time featuring Kardinal Offishall, Skillz & Shad. The original had Freeway, Dosage and Tona on it. (Shout to Shake of 2DopeBoyz for that). Can’t say which is better. They are both dope. Enjoy!
