Your (2)Dope Opinion: What's Your Favorite Rap Battle?

With the recent hoopla surrounding the latest rap "battle" (I use that term very lightly because a tried and tested MC like Common battling an R&B artist with an overtly chivalrous nature like Drake is like holding a candle to the Sun), I wanted to first, highlight one of my favorite battles ever, and two,

Yesterday, Luda dropped his 1.21 Gigawatts mixtape and shortly after the internets got to talking about tracks 5 and 6.
