While appearing on LL Cool J’s SiriusXM “Rock The Bells” radio show, Biz Markie gave his best effort at Eminem’s #GodzillaChallenge, which ended in a hilarious video of the former Juice Crew MC mouthing Em’s rapid-fire words and miming a performance.
LL subsequently shared the clip on Twitter, which garnered a response from the song’s original lyricist.
“Yo Em!!! Ya manz man Biz markie ain’t playing with this Godzilla challenge!!!” LL wrote on Twitter. “#GodzillaChallenge!!! @BizMarkie getting it done!!”
While Em loved the entry, he reminded Markie that he was a little too qualified for the competition.
“Yo biz!! U bodied this!!” he wrote. “But this contest is 4 ameteurs only!! Ha!!”
Eminem launched his #GodzillaChallenge last week, which dares fans to rap along to his “Godzilla” verse, where he spits 224 words within 31 seconds. He also promised to give away prizes to the most impressive entries.
“Fill ‘em with the venom and eliminate ‘em’ [Triller] #GodzillaChallenge is on,” he captioned a video of himself rapping the song. “Who can spit it? Reposting + got prizes for my favorites.”
Markie arrives as the latest attempt, with hundreds of Twitter users taking on the challenge — including Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s Bizzy Bone.
“Shouts to the young homie Eminem, nothing but love. You already know. Anybody down with Dr. Dre, down with Ice Cube and part of the whole Mo Thugs family is immediately cousins, brothers and relatives, but we finna take the #GodzillaChallenge,” Bone said in his video entry, before tackling Em’s verse at an impressive speed.
“Godzilla” features Juice WRLD and appeared on Em’s surprise Music To Be Murdered By album. Along with the posthumous verse from Juice, the record featured collaborations with Young M.A, Royce Da 5’9”, White Gold, Ed Sheeran, Skylar Grey, Black Thought, Q-Tip, Denaun, Anderson .Paak, Don Toliver, KXNG Crooked and Joell Ortiz.
According to his longtime manager Paul Rosenberg, a video to accompany “Godzilla” is on the way.
