The Rap Game Season 5 Episode 5 – ‘Style Wars’

On episode 5, the MC’s get caught looking plain by the paparazzi, and celebrity stylist April Roomet helps the artists find their look. Meanwhile, the rappers bring their all to the photo shoot, but JD makes the top two battle for the feature in Popstar! Magazine.

  • Scorpionsavage

    Sire didn’t stand out and he doesn’t seem to have a signature/standout look while Eli actually stepped up his game from the usual.

  • Scorpionsavage

    I hear you but I’m listening to lyrics not looking at their skin, and the only other person up there with them lyrically is Tyeler. Not saying that any of them are some supreme lyricists just that their skills match up. Nya AND Sire can hit the door as far as that is concerned.

  • Tinisha MrsHarper Sutphin

    But regardless no kid should be talking about somebodys mama being a drug user calling him a meth baby or crack baby thats not something a child should talk about

  • I get what you’re saying, but it ‘aint the curves sis. Tyler has that sex appeal. Amayah don’t have nun of dat, so she could make all the faces she wants, she’s never going to give off what Tyler does. So yes, she has to sweeten it up which is pretty simple. All she has to do is smile.

  • The budget is getting smaller and smaller. No money for shopping this year! LOL!

  • BoomShakalaka

    I really like Nya and Tyler. Nya had me SHOOK. She came at the diabetic brother and meth addict mother. I am scrimmin. But I hear you sis. Also CAN WE STOP TELLING TEENAGE BLACK GIRLS WHO HAPPEN TO BE CURVY THAT THEY LOOK GROWN AND OR SEXY???!!!. Apryl’s no fashion having self kept shouting “not too sexy” at Tylee but not at Amyah??? Amyah was making the same faces and doing the same poses. Leave Tylee alone. Shes a good girl, it’s not her fault she has a curvy body and beautiful face!

  • BoomShakalaka

    I understand where everyone is coming from with Eli getting a pass HOWEVER, he is a polite and respectful boy who appears to take rapping seriously. He doesnt try to do a “blaccent” e doesnt act fake l, nothing. Just yes sir and yes ma’am from him so I think the anger directed at him and his dad is slightly misguided.

  • Julienne Trotter

    ok so as far as the battle go it was very intense and nya took it too far ….But i feel like if eli could have remembered what he wrote about nya then it might have come out a little more fair because at the end of the day eli has good raps just not the best memory….sire mom Is going to be the reason her son dose not win and if theres even a slim chance he dose he will not make it far at all… Ahmaya manger got me wondering why he is even there he doesn’t help her during the challenges and only open his fat mouth when she is on the bottom kinda dont like him cause if he was pushing her in the right way then it would not have taken 5 danm weeks for That baby to find her confidence like she did this week She is good too and needs to be put in a “you got this mindset”.. .. Tyler picture of her smiling would have got her higher on the list it was the only one she looked younger

  • Priscilla Dixon

    Funny how the white women defend Eli but go ham on the blks …

  • Jayla Ardacia Fox

    Child that battle was intense! I know it’s a battle but I felt that disrespect on a whole other level

  • Kiki

    Eli might be a white rapper, but the ONE thing I can appreciate him for is being himself and not acting like a ghetto coon to fit in with black culture. That shows me that at the minimum, he takes rapping seriously and is not using it solely for a comeup. And I won’t lie, as an avid battle rap watcher, I am a little disturbed by Nya’s delivery. At the end of the day, they are kids and I’m pretty sure they will not be battling in the streets if they get signed. No rapper today really even does that stuff anymore. Idk, something just didn’t sit right with me about that.

  • Straightshooter

    You can’t win a debate so you wanna get violent. Typical And you wonder why so many are in prison. smh

  • Rap”Genie”Us

    I just want to feel as safe as this clown does behind his keyboard

    I bet you’d never say any of this ignorant shit in the presence of anyone black

  • Rap”Genie”Us

    I just want to feel as safe as this clown does behind his keyboard

    I bet you’d never say any of this ignorant shit in the presence of anyone black

  • T’Airicka Steward

    I just wish I was older and had a child on this show so I could beat the dog shit out of Sire mom.
    She and her husband are pieces of shit. How you hoping on your son’s come up so he can take care of you, his dad, and his siblings. Sorry excuse for a mother PERIOD. Yo bum ass shouldn’t have had all them damn kids and can’t afford Them. I don’t feel bad about their story at all. I do feel bad for Sire being put in that situation at 14. I just wanna whoop his mom’s ass back to that trailer in the middle of the Blair witch project.

  • Paige M Curry

    Omg Nya the disrespect….wow

  • Tima Yangala

    Who’s brandy?

  • Straightshooter

    Talking about you own something! You don’t even wanna own the hair on your damn head! Miss me with all that! Nobody wanna hear garbage rap with violent disrespecful lyrics unless you’re a low life.

  • Straightshooter

    Whateva! Rap aint shit but nursery rhymes. Nursery Rhymes been around! The only thing blacks did was add a beat and violence. One of the first rappers in rap was a white female! WHITE!!!!

  • Eletha Thompson

    I appreciate that your response has nothing to do with what I said. Proving my point that you’re not intellectually matched with me. Read up to my level then respond once you learn some new concepts

  • Straightshooter

    Shut up! This aint 1962 No one cares Let’s go Eli!

  • Eletha Thompson

    Good point! Sire was chastised for not knowing who he is but Eli is praised…. hmmmm

  • Eletha Thompson

    Black ppl created every genre of music so there would be nothing to be insecure about. Some black ppl just understand society, politics, and culture better than u so their critiques are wayyyyy over your head. Black ppl will just create new genres of music. Silly

  • Pebbles

    I know!

    I swore I heard a little blackness in him whe he said : nah fawk that !

  • Vashti Perry

    Honestly pluck the lace front

  • Juanita Applebaum

    april got eli looking like a white supremacist, that was horrible even his dad was looking like wtfreak.
    nya poof has never been it but ok. none of them looked better. april was not needed if there was no improvement.

  • LilD

    Eli and Sire looked the same to me, almost the same haircut and similar vests at photo shoot.

  • Tinisha MrsHarper Sutphin

    I honestly think Amaya and Eli are the best lyrical wise! With a pen and paper none of them other kids can stop them.

  • Tinisha MrsHarper Sutphin

    I disagree she shouldn’t get no chain because she beat rap battles. I honestly think Eli is way better lyrical he just got way too confident and lost his words but as far as writing lyrics and performing a song Nya is no match for Eli!

  • Damion Johnson

    Somebody tell Sires mom to shut the entire fuck up damn

  • Kel

    Nya battled everyone. She battle Tyler, Sire, Amaya and now Eli. And she won all!!!

  • PRI$$Y

    Yeeeeesssss!!!! I been saying the same thing, it’s just embarrassing and I know Sire is embarred but that’s his mom so he’s going to back her no matter what

  • PRI$$Y

    LMAO I did 2

  • PRI$$Y

    She did not curse they only bleeped her out because she said the N word(which is just as bad as a curse word) But I get it though

  • PRI$$Y

    You are very spot on she is way too cocky, annoying and always have something negative to say about the other kids. They are all there to try and get that chain so they can have a better life on the expense of their child; it’s just sad they have to subject their child to that type of standards

  • Rokses

    But when Nya battled Sire, he lost because he was too soft. So this was bound to happen , having to battle every weak and trying to up the ante.

  • Averywest

    AGREED!

  • Averywest

    Exactly!

  • Averywest

    Problem for who?….LIES

  • Rokses

    Exactly. You see how the pussy parent’s conversation died down when JD stepped in the room.

  • Rokses

    I hope Sire’s mom will look back at herself and try to do better with Sire.

  • Mrs Lucky

    I wish I could like this comment more than once

  • Mrs Lucky

    Facts. People can kiss Eli’s ass all they want but the facts are if he was black he would be viewed as lyrically weak. I also feel that if Amayah was brown/dark skinned she too would be viewed as lyrically weak and I also feel she wouldn’t have been given as many passes. It’s always easier for people to act confused with “why is everyone hating on Eli cause he’s white” but the fact is colorism is very real and I’ve seen it on this show almost every season.

  • Jujubeejade

    Team Eli….
    This show is turning into a soap opera. Some of these ppl true colours are starting to show and i don’t mean black and white. I see now why Nya and Brandy’s kid are such good friends. Smh

  • FighterMom2011

    I’ve watched this show since season 1, like many of you have I’m sure. I have no problem personally with the rap battle we saw this week between Nya and Eli. Was it a little hard to watch, yes because she totally tore him up. My issue is that last season I remember JD telling Jordan that he couldn’t cuss because he was a kid artist and kids can’t curse. Nya battle was nasty all the way around and I know they only had to bleep her out once so she tore him up without a bunch of curse words but it seems as though the whole “kids don’t curse” rule is out the window this season because it seems like most of them have cursed in their battles. To me, it seems as though JD has changed his perspective on what a kid artist can say. I’m no rapper or producer so he knows better than I do what sells.

  • Straightshooter

    They are insecure and scared because they think rap only belongs to black people. He coming fo that ass!

  • Straightshooter

    from day 1

  • Straightshooter

    I been team Eli from day one. I feel like they can do a lot with him.

  • Straightshooter

    #teamEli

  • Straightshooter

    yup you are

  • Bey Martinez

    Am I the only one irked by Eli and his speech slurring father???? I died when Tyeler was like, “I got #1,” and JD was like, “at #5, Tyeler Reign.” Nya should just get the chain based off of that battle. She’s fire.

  • rp

    Sire’s mother is sabotaging him with her negative energy!!!

  • Bey Martinez

    If Amaya’s ass talks about her lack of confidence one more time!!!!

  • Josie da Goddess

    Ooh ouch I just cringed when Nya was rapping…well damn. But tbh they are rapping on the top of their heads on the spot to what they know about the other person…soooo…idk

  • Josie da Goddess

    Agree

  • ExtraChocolate80

    I agreed with this hit list. Nya came in the house with her own style. Everyone stepped up this week even Amayah who looks like a whole new person. I don’t actually have a favorite this season cause there is no one I actually dislike. I’m pulling for everyone each week.

  • Aushai Mccraney

    Wow that battle was straight disrespectful smh. But hey if JD don’t care then I hope the next time Eli battle he go for Nya neck!!!

  • Nya gone be a problem in a few years

  • Alexis Trimble

    I like Eli he is the best

  • Pebbles

    She more kid friendly! I didn’t expect spuds to win but he came through last min that season

  • Pebbles

    He just doesn’t have EM talent though … he might be goodgoing the acting route though

  • Pebbles

    And Tyler too! When she said eat her cat & she had a bottle of piss

  • Kisha

    Facts

  • Aaliyah Johnson

    It Pisses Me Off When Everyone Says Eli Doesn’t Deserve It Bc He’s White, He Actually Can Rap & Is A Good Kid. I Could See If He Acted all Cocky And Ignorant, But He’s Sweet ! And Sires Mom Is Just A Fucking Mess, She’s Mad Bc Her Son Is Not The Best & It’s Really A Competition ! Nyas Comments On Eli Was Nasty & Off Limits, & She Knew She was Wrong, That’s Why She Apologized Right After ! I’m So Over Brandy Depending On Sire To Win & Take Care Of A Whole Family, He Needs To Worry About His Own Future ! She’s Using Him & I Believe She Been Using The System For Years To With All Them Damn Kids, Different Colors & All !!

  • Shacora L Jones

    Damn that’s some true shit

  • Scandalous

    Nah Brandy is the gatekeeper for pimping her son to feed her other bastards and give her some money point blank. So take your whining racist blickety-black shit up outta here and stick it back up ya ass.
    Instead of getting mad and busting a vein OVER THE MOST PETTY THINGS like another race stealing your cornrows and rap, evolve already. Other cultures are successful b/c they EVOLVE and Brandy, Nya and dem NEED TO BE be the goddamn gatekeepers of blacks getting an education, having kids in wedlock, raising children WITH FATHERS, closing their fucking legs, getting some damn morals, and DESTROYING the hood culture that’s kept niggas right where they are in poverty and ignorance for 75 years.
    Ain’t no system keeping you down when blacks are their own worst enemy and keep themselves down. Now run tell dat crybaby.

  • kiwi

    #teamnya

  • Scandalous

    girl shut up with this stupid ass shit and stop crying all the time.

  • Nikkihatch

    Sire mom is wrong but I feel like they prove her point…sire lost why? Eli got praised for looking like a rapper while sire get called cliche?

  • Agree.

    I understand it’s a rap battle but at the end of the day these are children, not adults; the market JD is aiming for are children (as he did with Kris Kross, Li’l Bow Wow etc.).

    If parents want to raise their children to think this kind of thing is OK or even normal, fine! …It’s indicative of mentality and where they’ll ultimately end up!

  • if Eli had thrown that race card shit on that *** (she’s a 16 YO kid, not a “hoe”) and talked bout her family then it wudve been a problem and then oh he a racist FOH!!!

    …all the way da f*ck outta here!!

    With the exception of that one thing (noted above), this is the unadulterated truth but certain people are so stuck on being extreme hypocrites and perpetual victims that they won’t admit it!

    The only one giving out this alleged “pass” is JD (25+ years in the game), so I don’t know why London, Brandi, Nya and any other whiners don’t take that shit up with him.

  • Shacora L Jones

    U said that!!! This comment was EVERYTHING. I’ve been saying this same exact shit from episode one && got dragged for bringing up race. Crazy thing is… it was by BLACK PPL. Eli is mediocre plain n simple

  • Rodney L. Robinson

    1000% AGREE

  • Rodney L. Robinson

    1000% AGREE

  • Rodney L. Robinson

    1000% AGREE

  • To everyone crying over what Nya said: I’ve heard worse (and most of you have, too) walking past a middle school playground. GTFOH.

  • Truth

    AGREED!!!and ppl on here talkin bout oh she did what she had to do no u dumb fuks she didnt HAVE to bring up anyone’s sick folk!!!yes ur supposed to go hard but theres a difference between going hard and just downright evil and disgusting ESPECIALLY coming from a child!!!and yes Sire mom needs to STFU she wants this more than Sire!!!

  • Truth

    EXACTLY even street dudes battling in corners wont talk about noone’s sickness like that!!!if ur all THAT come up with smthing OTHER than that!!!and especially this typa shit coming from a 15 year old????!!!!really fk outta here!!!yes some ppl will do and say whatever but it WILL come back to bite ur ass!!!

  • Truth

    it was absolutely disgusting and evil to hear something like that come out of a “child”s mouth period!!!

  • Truth

    started disliking Nya last episode thought she was humble n minds her own business but naw this lil girl is getting arrogant and them battle disses were nothing but low blows downright ugly AF yes ur supposed to dis but personal shit like that is OFF LIMITS period!!!especially for children even grown ass street rappers wont take certain shit to that level of ugliness n evil!!!hope ur lil cover was worth it Nya cuz i’ll always remember what u SAID to get on that piece of paper. Brandy needs to STFU seriously smone tape that bitch mouth!!!this bitch want this more than Sire for her own personal gains fk outta here with that race shit nobody’s trying to look like ur son Eli will never look like him nor does he want to GET THAT to ur head!!!im glad Eli dad went off on this bitch!!!Eli is a good looking genuine nice kid kinda like the 1st kid who got eliminated Lil Richie…Tyieler’s a cute girl im starting to like her more…Amaya’s look was cute too but i still think she’s better off as being a writer…i feel like she’s being tortured by being there too much for her…

  • Scarlette

    So when they rap about deep real life shit Jermaine calls it “boring”…smh Ok JD

  • Eletha Thompson

    Eli and his dad seem cool I agree. I also agree Brandy is annoying. however Brandy and Nya and dem are not wrong for being gatekeepers over black culture. Black ppl have to begin to do this more

  • Eletha Thompson

    lmaooo right I was thinking the same thing. She went in like Ms Hustle lololol

  • Eletha Thompson

    Nya is a smart girl she is definitely right about her analysis of Eli, his race and how it factors into him being judged with a bias. He is mediocre but bc he’s white he’s getting propped up. This always happens when white ppl enter into black cultural spaces. Hip hop was created by BLACK PPL, therefore WE have the right to dictate the standards. Unfortunately black ppl surrendered their control to white execs smh. Thats like a white person going into Mexico and trying to dictate what happens in mariachi music lol its stupid. So why we gotta act like rap is some multicultural thing. ITS FUCKING NOT

    Who gives a damn if white ppl are judged and have their race thrown at them in rap? Its our shit. Black ppl have to deal with a whole fucking society keeping them down, shutting them out, vilification, in every fucking system. Have some sympathy for them. Not the Iggys and Elis who SHOULD have to prove their talent in order to become an influencer in an artistic space. FOH

  • cocaína.maui.wowie

    Idk I agree that u are supposed to go in hard af at battles but I honestly feel that shit about his brother and mom was just honestly evil, idk about that JD foreal and meth baby ? Like idk that’s just fucking mean lowkey

  • StephBack

    Exactly my thoughts …. Nya’s mom support her daughter in everything even when her behavior is not right…..

  • Ancient Wisdom

    I think so too, at least she should be. She has a wicked flow, she is one of the best lyricist & she has swag and stage presence. Sire does too but for some reason JD doesn’t think his style is genuine. Most of these mumbling’ ass rappers on the charts dress & sound the same so….

  • Ancient Wisdom

    I agree that Eli is mediocre. He should’ve battled last week. He choked in both challenges, dude forgot his bars and fucked up the promposal AND forgot 4 bars at the prom performance. He took London’s advice and filled in other bars. I guess the 1st challenge doesn’t count for the hit list.

  • Ancient Wisdom

    Even if Eli wouldn’t have choked, his battle rap was lame as fuck. His pic was popping tho! The hit list was on point. Tyler should’ve chosen the pic where she was smiling. She can’t help how she naturally looks.

  • Pebbles

    I believe that battle rap has set her apart from everyone else, but no one thought little bud would when and he swooped down and won it all

  • QBee

    Nya looks like she’s getting a lil too cocky….I did like the hood up on the fro pic though..Amaya is gorgeous..I hope she sees that..the red hair made it pop more…Sire dressed like 50Cent in his G-Unit days with those bullet proof looking jacket on..Why do they all have something to say about Eli…true say he was doing your standard rapper poses.

  • LOOKIE LOOKIE


    Y’ALL ARE SENSITIVE NYA DONE NO WRONG!!! SHE BATTLED PERIOD POINT BLANK….

    DUSTIN WHITE PRIVILEGE IS ITCHING
    TO SPEAK TO THE MANAGER.
    THIS EXACTLY WHY WHITE PEOPLE AINT CUT FOR THIS RAP GAME

  • Mylkchawclit

    That’s the art of battle rap so they gotta be prepared. I do agree they should’ve kept it kid friendly but this ain’t nothing new. A couple of kids done violated in past seasons during their battles. Nya did a great job because she really did what battle rappers do in battles. Eli just wasn’t ready for it ..

  • Mylkchawclit

    Right then she trying to get buck with a man smh someone gone beat her ass one day

  • Mylkchawclit

    What? All the parents talk about different qualities the other kids have and don’t have. There’s a difference between critiquing and talking shit . Now Brandy has a nasty way of accepting the fact her son isnt the star of the show, that’s talking shit . Bare minimum? That boy has one of the best rap flows on the show. He knows how to make a song and ride a beat. He is a lyrical artist not one of these backpack dancing ass rappers. But most importantly he knows how to come back from fucking up and plays it off well as he should. JD been making the right calls period .

  • Exactly!

  • Agree!

    I guarantee Brandy wouldn’t have a problem with white people buying Sire’s CDs or attending his concerts so he can feed her 250 kids and buy her a house, but white kids are not allowed to struggle and rap? I didn’t like that BS when it came out of Nya’s mouth either and, frankly, it’s a cop out.

    Personally, I think there should be guidelines in rap battles for this show because these are kids. I didn’t like it when Tyeler spit that “p*ss taste” line, and I didn’t like the one Nya threw about Eli’s sick brother.

  • shasyl

    Brandy afraid they are going to trash her and her trailer full of kids only a matter of time.I really feel bad for Sire because she put to much pressure on him.

  • Mylkchawclit

    Brandy talking about drawing lines but didn’t tell Sire shit when he basically called Amayah fat in his battle against her *Smokes blunt*

  • Mylkchawclit

    Exactly !

  • Queet C

    lol

  • NiHi

    I think all of them are sweet kids. Nya destroyed Eli in the rap battle, but apologized as soon as it was over. I felt bad for him because had he not told them his personal business she wouldn’t have had anything to use against him. You could tell Eli was hurt, but he and his dad agreed it’s what a rap battle is about. Sire’s mama said kids should be off limits cuz she doesn’t want them to start raping about her trifflin ass depending on a 14 year old to get 10 people out a fucking trailer. Ugh … she makes my stomach hurt.

  • shasyl

    He reminds me of Em in 8 mile but because Eli is white it’s easy for that hooligan Brandy to bash him.You can go hard for your children but the way she behave good Lord I wish DJ can dismiss her from that house.I really like Eli he is just a kid that wants to win just like the other children.That Brandy ain’t shit and she just depends on SIre to make it to take care of her trailer load of children.

  • kinky twist

    They hating on poor eli HARD! He’s such a cutie pie! Amiya looked really good as well she needs to leave that shy shit at the door because thats her only issue!

  • Mylkchawclit

    Jermaine needs to check Brandy. She doesn’t do shit but attack those kids then gets upset when the parents don’t allow that shit. Sire gone lose because of her. She so convinced everybody after her son when all reality they are just competing . If Eli wanted to look like Sire he wouldve came out with short sleeve hoodies and piercings foh … Eli is more lyrically advanced than most of those kids and they keep blaming it on race . No that boy is talented period. when he went in the studio and did that song with Zaytoven he straight up had everything on point . He has a good ear for music. They act like because hes not black and comes from the hood that he doesn’t have shit to fight for meanwhile he got a sick brother and his moms an addict .

  • I can’t stand mofos who throw out the “race” card when things don’t go their way – and I instantly turn off and stop listening.

    To be honest, Nya does not stand out to me and reminds me of the other 9,987 wannabes I’ve seen/heard before.

  • Mylkchawclit

    Um hello that’s what they do in rap battles. They violate and say all types of shit. She did whatbshe was suppose to do.

  • Mylkchawclit

    Yea Dustin !!! Tired of that bitch Brandy !

  • Mylkchawclit

    Well damn Nya sheesh. ..

  • shasyl

    Aiight I hear you and I totally agree with you

  • shasyl

    For real and i never felt the need to really slap the shit out of anyone but this trailer trash make me want to.She will be her son downfall.

  • Mylkchawclit

    Eli looked great!

  • Tima Yangala

    Talent wise yes Eli messes up and plays it of a little bit better which has been getting him by but they all have messed up

  • Tima Yangala

    Ur 3rd actually

  • I want to slap the HELL OUT OFF SIRE MOTHER…SOME ONE NEEDS TO SHUT HER ASS UP DAMN…BLAHBLAHBLAH

  • SoBlessedSoReal

    I agree Nya will win!

  • rp

    I agree with 100%!!! Sire, mom is like a rabid dog, and she setting Sire up many disappointment in life!!! Nya, is just horrible, her mother has no shame regarding Nya’s behavior!!!

  • Deidra Cade

    Now that was a battle…..lol…She must have been watching “Queen of the Ring”…Ain’t no boundaries in a rap battle….

  • Clayne Rojano

    Eli cleaned up nicely

  • Rose

    I hate how that bitch stay bullying them kids other than hers and she wonder why she in the place she in now she not humble and she don’t show it . And they all team up on the white boy and I’m just waiting for someone to cuss that bitch out and put her in her place

  • Shernett Chambers

    Second

  • GMoney

    Brandi’s mouth is going to be Sire’s downfall. Yes Nya went too damn far. They still kids at the end of the day. Brandi got nerve to say someone don’t stfu when all I ever do is see her run her damn mouth. She needs to be checked forreal. It’s a shame how much everyone is hating on Eli because he’s white. He’s just as equal as the rest of them

  • cocaína.maui.wowie

    First

  • Kemy Siambe

    Amayah and Eli killed this
    something about Nya …..too full of herself ….nuh sis take a couple of chill pills…..
