Watch Denzil Porter & Illmaculate Battle In Heated Bar Fight Episode

Traditionally, a rap battle, or bar fight, is supposed to end with only one winner, but not this time.

Last week, we told our readers to watch rappers Token and Emoney battle for bragging rights during the latest episode of TeamBackPack's Bar Fight series. On Monday (November 28), the series returned with a highly-entertaining new episode, which features Bronx spitter Denzil Porter going up against veteran Portland wordsmith Illmaculate.

Over two different beats by producer Chase Moore, both Porter and Illmac impress, each delivering their bars with relative ease. Despite the age gap between the two emcees, Porter more than holds his own alongside Illmaculate, leaning heavily on all of his previous cypher and battle experiences—he's a six-time TeamBackPack cypher participant.

Traditionally, a rap battle, or bar fight, is supposed to end with only one winner. But after watching these two go back-to-back through two rounds a handful of times, I'm hard pressed to declare either of them a loser.

In fact, the real winners here are rap fans. Congrats, everyone.
