    Mansa Musa vs Jeff Bezos Discussion

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCeUvPL9rMc

    Scru Face Jean as Mansa Musa
    EpicLloyd as Jeff Bezos

    LYRICS:

    Spoiler: 
    Wallah, by the holy Quran I lay my hand upon,
    I blaze Bezos, inflict inflammatory damage on–
    Amazon! Burn it down like when they put the cattle on,
    the hottest on the map since the Atlas of Catalan!
    The King of Mali, with gold bars you can’t escape from.
    Lyrically, I pack heat, you pack a tape gun.
    I’m landing blows you can’t dodge, this ain’t sales tax.
    I left footprints in the Sahara, I know hot tracks.
    I bust dorks like dot-com bubbles when I hit ‘em.
    Nah, you can’t spit, you got that Al Gore rhythm! (Hah-hah!)
    Here’s a nugget of advice to get your union problems handled:
    Want workers that don’t piss? Hire some camels!
    I expanded horizons with libraries and mosques,
    while you chopped off the top of all the mom-and-pop shops.
    All you widened was the gap between the have and have-nots.
    Now they ordering or living in your cardboard box!

    At Amazon, our product research is phenomenal.
    But I’ve never heard your story, and I own Audible! (Hah-hah-hah-hah!)
    So go dig some more gold there, Kanye West Africa. (Ha-hah!)
    I’m hotter than the soundtrack to Battlestar Galactica!
    Never trade blows with Jazzy Jeff Bezos!
    Egghead with a huge set of huevos.
    I serve more people on the web than Spider-Man.
    You rap like a soccer mom, that’s why you roll with caravans!
    You’re overrated, like you leave economies inflated.
    You’re about to taste some of that salt that you traded!
    What’s the long-term play in giving your wealth away, eh?
    ‘Cuz now I feed your whole country for the price of a cup of coffee per day!
    So bow to me like you did to the King of Cairo.
    You’re about as hack as Saudis tapping my iPhone!
    You’ll be more ashamed then when you accidentally killed your mom,
    when I make you shit your pants worse than Diapers.com!

    Ayo, Lex Loser, you look like a villain at Comic-Con.
    You gettin' ate up, you should’ve battled me on Ramadan! (Whooh!)
    A harem of women is what I had on my staff.
    You married one woman, Jeff, and she cut you in half! (Shink!)
    (Ha-hah!) David Pecker picked a peck at your peter pics.
    Now your new girl got them “Feed me, Seymour” lips.
    And it turns out, her own brother was the snitch.
    He… whooh! Fix your face; no wonder you bought Twitch! (Hooh!)
    Now let me really break it down because there’s more to him.
    He ain’t a Bezos, his real name is Jorgenson. (Hah.)
    But his daddy loved unicycles more than him.
    So he rolled out – now that’s a Blue Origin!
    Take one small step towards a different prophet.
    ‘Cuz these days, you’re just as cocky as your rocket.
    I’m the cream of the crop, I’m on top, I’m ice cold.
    This Muslim just served you... Allah mode!

    Musa, I’m lyrically lethal. I’m relentless, African-verse immune.
    If I wanted to waste my life on desert spice, I’d watch Dune.
    What did we give MacKenzie, forty billion? So what? (Hah-hah!)
    Earning every penny back only took me a month!
    I went from Hobbit dork to slick orc physique.
    Now I’m Lord of the Rings, take a peek. (Ha-hah!)
    Three years to trek to Mecca? Man, you must be tripping.
    One click, I’ll get you there overnight with free shipping!
    I’m hard-corporate, top tier of the Forbes list.
    You couldn’t even hit top tier in Civ 6.
    I’m schooling you like Timbuktu, eating you like Whole Foods.
    Your ship has sailed just like the dude who came before you!
    ‘Cuz you ain’t Fire, can’t hold a Kindle to me.
    I got the flywheel flows, I revolutionized delivery.
    Your talent’s oddly puny like my tax… bills.
    Alexa, what do we have that he lacks? Skills.
    (Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-hah!)

    Alright, now with that Crumbcake fuckface out of the way, I'm finally free to discuss this battle without being disgusted. I wasn't too keen on Lloyd's Bezos impression and bars at first, but his performance is slowly starting to grow on me. Not enough to beat Mansa Musa, however.

    this was an amazing battle, I loved it!!! every aspect was on point: the flows, the disses, the character portrayals... and holy shit ERB visuals just keep getting better and better, the Catalan atlas part and the dramatic zoom-out of the sahara blew me away!

    I think this is now one of my favorite ERB instrumentals. I love it when each rapper has their own distinct elements added to the beat - Musa's had African instrumentation (you can even see him playing one of the instruments in the background), while Bezos sounded more industrial and electronicy. the percussion during the "dot com bubbles" breakdown was FIRE. and not only that, they switched up the beat for specific lines, such as "Saudis tapping my iphone" - it made it even even more dynamic to listen to than usual! also, ERB should include sound effects more often, that Amazon Ring chime was slick

    super cool to see Scru make it in an erb too, he absolutely killed it - he brought so much charisma to the role, and his flow is some of the best I've heard on ERB! I hope they'll have him on for another battle in the future. Musa definitely won this one, but Bezos was hilarious so I thoroughly enjoyed it. top tier battle for sure
