Backstage news on the rap battle segment from SD Live Submitted by Aaron Rift on 07/09/2017 at 06:35 PM
During an interview with hiphopdx.com, rapper Mega Ran talked about The Usos' rap battle line, "Don't get all rated R like your boy Xavier Woods!"
Here is an excerpt from the interview:
“For everybody who’s asking me, I did not write rhymes,” Ran tells HipHopDX. “I just kinda sat and listened. I helped them with their deliveries and getting down the cadence and stuff.”
Although the producers of the segment requested both teams send in their rhymes for the script, only The New Day obliged. The Usos showed theirs to one producer, but made a point to not let The New Day see their bars, which referenced a salacious story involving Woods.
“[The Usos] were able to write rebuttal lines,” Ran revealed. “I felt it gave them an advantage. They might’ve gotten a little better crowd response, but they went a little below the belt to get it.”
