The heated debate went down during a recent appearance on “Drink Champs.”

Tony Yayo’s recent claim that The Notorious B.I.G. could out-rap Ice Cube has prompted a response from the West Coast emcee’s son and actor O’Shea Jackson Jr.

Yayo made the assertion amid an intense debate with Drink Champs co-host DJ EFN over which of the two men was the better emcee. The G-Unit artist argued that Biggie was the better storyteller, while EFN defended the “No Vaseline” rapper’s discography.
