Just imagine a melodic clash between two music maestros. What if your imagination is about to turn into a reality? Well, a recent buzz has thrown some hints of an upcoming rap collision between two legends from their respective fields, Nick Cannon and Eminem.
The “Wild N’ Out” host is calling out to many rappers to challenge him for $100,000 (A$136322.45), including “Rap God” artist Marshall Mathers III aka Eminem.
In a recent interview with U.K. entertainer Tim Westwood, Cannon proved that not only was he serious about the challenge he’d laid down, but that he’d take on anyone who wanted to confront him. “I’m still ready! I’m trying to find him. Where is he?” Nick Cannon communicated.
“We gonna be out in the States for the BET Awards. I’m holding a $100,000 battle—whoever wants it—but it has to be someone who can put up 100 grand … I done reached out to Tyga, he didn’t want it. I went to all Slaughterhouse. I did it like Mortal Kombat. I said I’ll take all of them out to get to the boss,” reported Complex.

The feud between Cannon and Eminem started back in 2009 when Cannon’s then-wife Mariah Carey dropped the song “Obsessed.” The pop number was aimed at the “Not Afraid” rapper, Eminem. Mariah’s tune received a controversial response from him through his track titled “Warning Shot”.
HipHop DX learned that Canadian battle rapper Corey Charron accepted Cannon’s open challenge last week with a blog and verse, and Cannon replied to him with a blog and some bars of his own, but ultimately said he was in search of opponents “that are a draw.”
Now with this gauntlet, Nick Cannon is trying to turn the table on the rap icon. Whether or not he succeeds, only time will tell.
What do you think about the whole dramatic challenge? Is it really something that needs to be considered as serious or just another publicity stunts by these musical titans?
Earlier this year, an information revealed by Earn The Necklace stated that Eminem is supposed to release an album this year. His frequent visits to a recording studio fed the rumor mills with the fact that the rap icon is all set to drop his new album. Could it be possible that Nick Cannon’s rap battle is a part of it?
