Last Emperor - Secret Wars

While his album was very unmemorable The Last Emperor made one of the best rap songs ever in 1999 titled Secret Wars. It was a play on the Marvel Comic series of the same name where different characters were pitted against one another to see who would be the victor. The Last Emperor puts rappers against the comic book characters in a vivid and exciting display of words and creativity. He goes off track a bit with the Ninja Turtle and G.I. Joe refs but hey still a great song.

T.A.G. vs the X-Men
