Guest outshines the host
Counterpoint: Jay-Z Feat. Eminem, “Renegade”
Hip-hop will always be a competitive sport—it’s in the DNA of the culture. So we’re always going to jabber about who got murdered on a collabo. If one or more of the contributions are lackluster, fine. But if two MCs are going their hardest and the song’s host gets edged out, it all makes for a dope track (and fodder for the rap forums).
