This coming Saturday, two worlds will collide, and the most hyped fight in the history of combat sports will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada. To help boost the hype even more, I have released this rap battle, featuring two of the greatest fighters to ever step in a ring.
I don't know how the idea first dawned on me, but one day a light bulb went off above my head, and I knew I wanted to make a trap-metal song, with Mayweather and McGregor's famous trash talk from their press conferences as the "vocal" track. I revived a trap song I had started a year or two ago, and started working on the mix and the sounds, to get the mix sounding good.
After it was in a pretty good place, I had my brother, Paul, throw down some great guitar tracks, which took it to the next level. Once we had a pretty good foundation recorded, I got to work, slicing up audio from the press conferences, and combining all of my favorite parts of their trash talk into a verse and chorus for each of the fighters. That was definitely my favorite part, because listening to these guys insult each other was truly entertaining.
Paul helped me clean up the mix a little bit until it really sounded nice to both our ears, and then I got to the task of collecting highlights from both boxing and MMA's best fighters, and edited it to the video. This was also a lot of fun, because I got to go through a lot of amazing footage from so many amazing fights. It was also a blast matching the footage to the trash talk. There were so many times that I would burst into laughter while editing this video. Both fighters are so talented and so hilarious at the same time.
So who's watching the fight? Who's going to win? Who's trash talk did you like better? Who won the rap battle? Let me know in the comments below!
