Twitter goes nuts over a possible Eminem and Drake rap battle
A slew of fans on Twitter are losing their minds after it was rumoured that Drake and Eminem would go head-to-head in, what would be, the ultimate rap battle.
But, how did it all start?
Hot 97 host DJ Ebro, on Wednesday, hinted at a rumoured feud between the two rappers, following Drake's longtime beef with Joe Budden, who is signed to Eminem's label.
"I told Drake that I heard the rumor Eminem was going to gear up to come after him," Ebro revealed on his morning show.
"He laughed. He was like, 'That’s not gonna happen.' He’s like, 'He’d never do that. And if he did, I got something for him, too.'"
As a result, Twitter had a field day. Though Drake has a ton of fans, hardly anyone believes that he would be able to take on the 'Rap God' himself, Eminem, in a real face-to-face battle.
Drake can gather all the hip hop artists to write for him verses but he will never win a rap battle against slim shady #Eminem— Jesse (@jesse_owala) August 4, 2016

Ebro has since withdrawn his statement, saying it was a joke which people are jumping on.
He tweeted: "Facts we was joking… Talked about in jest & fools jumped out the window. I ain't even think it was a big deal.
"It was such a joke and people ran with it... Slow news day. Drake got too much respect for all that…"
So, there you have it. There is no Eminem/Drake feud.
