All that gun talk is easy to throw around when you’re in the booth, but what about those MC’s who were able to back-up all the tough talk in the ring?
Melachi The Nutcracker (Group Home)
Check The Resume: Hired goon for the Gangstarr Foundation who lucked-out and appeared on some of DJ Premier’s best beats ever.
Certified Hand Skills: The Nutcracker wasn’t a rapper who could box – he was a boxer who rapped to fulfill his parole conditions.
Shirtless And Proud: As seen on the back of Hard To Earn. Who’s got time to pen lyrics of fury when you’ve got 200 stomach crunches to do every morning?
Nature of a Threat: ‘I hit your moms in the head with a metal pipe!’
Bing Monster: Fresh off a bid when he recorded Livin’ Proof, he returned for another seven year’s up north.
Get Ya Weight Up: What else is there to do behind bars apart from hitting the weight bench?
Freddie Foxxx aka Bumpy Knuckles
Check The Resume: Eric B’s original MC has kept the rap world shook for over two decades.
Certified Hand Skills: Won both fights in the First Annual Rappers Boxing Championships, including knocking-out Dope E from The Terrorists with his left after Blaq Poet sprained his right shoulder after delivering a bone-jarring high five.
Shirtless And Proud: Current MySpace profile picture says features Foxxx flexin’ in the studio.
Nature of a Threat: ‘Then I drag him in the alley and I hit him in the head with the glocks/piss in his face because I’m crazy like a foxxx!’
Bing Monster: Frequently performed in jails, since he “wanted to rock in front of the hardest audience”.
Get Ya Weight Up: Beat WWE star John Cena in an arm wrestle.
Winner: Melachi almost takes the round on account of clearly having more interest in boxing than rapping, but the fact that Bumpy chose to do shows in the joint and the way he held it down for New York in the Rappers Boxing Championships is a one-two combination that can’t be denied.
