Aqib Talib gets into rap battle with reporter

Denver Broncos veteran cornerback Aqib Talib has completely shut down some of the league’s best receivers over the course of his career.

Talib took the podium at Super Bowl Opening Night and fielded questions from the media on Monday, and when one particular reporter challenged him to a freestyle rap battle, Talib did not shy away from the challenge.

Talib took his time spitting, but it’s safe to say he won. The reporter clearly came up with his bars beforehand, and his flow seemed rehearsed, while Talib delivered a legitimate freestyle.
