  1. Xzibit
  2. 50/50 imo...neither X nor Busta are what they once were.

Xzibit is probably the better battle rapper than Busta Rhymes... but it's close IMO

Xzibit is more a more skilled lyricist but Busta is a Living Legend.

Its damn close tho. Xzibit is very talented and having both of these artist on the same joint ir even seeing them compete against each otehr would be awesome.

Think both are pretty equal. I'd take X though.

I have to support Busta since I've listened to him for so long, but Xzibit is pretty skilled too.

How is Xzibit even close to Busta Rhymes, Busta has one of the most consistent careers of all time.  He has a hit song at least every 3 years, he has a larger discography, more number 1 hits, and he comes from a better pedigree (Native Tongues vs Likwit Crew).  Its not even close in a battle Busta Rhymes murders Xzibit.  His slow flow would kill him, he fast flow would destroy his soul.

@Lex Diamonds: Lol, 
 
I'll say Busta in his prime would probably win round one. Like Lex was saying, Busta had a lot of success for consecutive years, both commercially and artistically (imo). The Coming, When Disaster Strikes, and E.L.E. are all classics to me.  And I always thought of X as more of a written type of guy I guess... 
 
Current states though, X may be able to win.  Busta's speed flow has become more of a gimmick than an actual display of ability to me (though he did have a very nice display on Tech 9's new album, lol)

career wise... yes, Busta is better than Xzibit... but flow wise... Xzibit is slighty better than Busta... Busta Rhymes has had a Legendary Career... but flow wise Xzibit is slightly better... look back on Xzibit's albums... you will see dude has Flow

@King Saturn: Naw, not at all.  He's a one trick pony all he has is single syllable rhyme patterns, thats bush league.  His best song was on his first album (Papparazzi) other than that his rhymes are just mediocre.  He never really stands out, he just a filler rapper.  What he ought to do is Pimp his rhymes.
