Twitter nearly exploded today, November 6 as hip-hop fans were locked in a vicious argument over who is the best rapper, Ludacris or T.I. Many of their fans defended their favorite artist, but most of them were wondering why they are even fighting.
This Ludacris/T.I. debate is kinda hard. Luda first 4 or 5 albums was filled with nothing but bangers

It’s really hard to find out why Twitter decided to pit Ludacris’ discography against the one of T.I. on November 6.
It’s still unknown who said that Ludacris was better than Tip or if someone said that one of the two was better than the other. No one seems to remember why this fight between their fans even started.
No matter who started it, Twitter was nearly torn in half as fans took sides.
‘If you think Ludacris [is] better than T.I., block me,’ one user tweeted, while some say that they had ‘no tolerance for Ludacris slander.’
Others tried to find a reasonable middle ground, with one going ‘TI can go. Ludacris is awful, but he has bangers.’
Ludacris is a Witty Rapper, T.I. isn’t. Overall, discography, music, everything but WIT.. T.I. is the wayyyy better choice. https://t.co/iwvVYePhKj

There are obviously good hits on both sides.
While the debate seemed to escalate, some users were just confused as to why the Ludacris vs. Tip debate was a Twitter trending topic.
Tip and Luda, by the way, haven’t said anything about this on Twitter.
On the other hand, Tip and Ludacris have had some serious beef in the past.
The two were already rivals when former G-Unit artist Young Buck asked them to guest on his 2004 track, Stomp.
T.I. recorded a line, ‘And me getting beat down / that’s ludicrous,’ which was fine with Luda.
On the other hand, T.I.’s company wanted Ludacris to re-record his verse on the track.
When Luda refused, T.I. backed out and replaced him on the album version of the track, per MTV.
No way in hell does Ludacris have a better discography than T.I and I will put all you niggas in the cobra clutch over it

The bad blood between these two came reached a new level when T.I. got into a scuffle with Ludacris’ manager Chaka Zulu back in 2007, according to MTV.
Chaka and T.I. said the issues were ‘resolved’ between them, and Tip seemed to squash the beef with Ludacris back in 2008.
They were featured on each other’s albums that year. We are also asking ourselves why are their fans debating about who’s a better rapper nearly ten years later?
