About

Trading Rappers...Trust us...it's lit.

Who got bars? G.O.A.T?

Ever sit around listening to the homies tell you why a rapper is trash?  Or who should've won best Hip Hop artist of the year?  Are you tired of hearing what verse was the best 16 bars ever spit?  Well, this is the game for you...

We present...Trading Rappers...

 The rules are simple. The discussions won’t be. 

So your wondering how to play?

1. Shuffle the cards
2. Deal 5 cards to each player
3. Player to dealers left starts
4. Each player throws out a card they feel is a better rapper
5. Defend your stance
6. Determine who won the round

Wild Card 

Got a wild card? Well lucky you. This card holds great power. Use this card in a clutch. When this card is thrown, the player can choose ANY person they’d like to represent the card. Good Luck! 

Stalemate/Undecided?

Sounds like a personal problem. Take a vote. Use a lifeline. Call a friend. We’re sure you’ll figure it out. 

If played right, this is an extremely fun and entertaining game about rap culture. We get it. People are passionate and in their feels about their favorite rapper so you just have to remember…. it's just a game and to have fun with this s**t.
