“Lawsuits are just rap battles for white people”

A lawsuit has been compared to a rap battle. “Black people make fun of each other and it’s called a rap battle, white people make fun of each other and it’s called a lawsuit” was posted on Twitter by Kyle M on September 3, 2014. “A lawsuit is basically a rap battle between two lawyers but without the rhymes or impersonations of drifting cars” was posted on Twitter by Caesár van Daal on September 8, 2016.

“Someone said ‘lawsuits are just rap battles for white people’ I’m crine” was posted on Twitter by REGAN on January 7, 2018. “Lawsuits are just rap battles for white people” was posted on Twitter on April 29, 2018, and posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on July 16, 2018. Authorship is unknown.


Wikipedia: Battle rap
Battle rap (also known as rap battling) is a type of rapping that includes bragging, insults and boasting content. Battling can occur on recorded albums, though rap battles are often recited or freestyled spontaneously in live battles, “where MCs will perform on the same stage to see who has the better verses”.
