We all remember how mortified we felt in 2019 when Adam Levine and Travis Scott started bouncing around the stage together, Levine strumming a few power chords on the guitar, trying to excite a crowd that he knew was vehemently disinterested in him.

But the embarrassment we felt for the Maroon 5 frontman's dated rocker boy antics didn't distract us from seeing the performance in its shirtless, misogynistic entirety. There's a particular sort of dread that comes when celebrities clash–when fans' rose-tinted glasses come off and we witness something highly anticipated dissolve into a debacle. We can't look away, as much as we so desperately want to.

Fast is back in rap, you know. If it wasn't clear from Chris Brown's "Look at Me Now," in which the R&B singer-turned-rapper traded rapid-fire verses with Busta Rhymes and Lil' Wayne (and later, even Justin Bieber), it's certainly obvious now, as veteran Missouri rapper Tech N9ne has invited eight of his most limber-tongued friends from all over the world for an old-fashioned hip-hop drag race on posse cut "Worldwide Choppers," a song from his upcoming All 6's and 7's album.

The nine total rappers take turns over the song's grungy, choppy beat, with a female voice introducing each by intoning their home country or city. The full cast of characters, aside from Tech: Ceza (Turkey), U$O (Denmark), JL (KC), Yelawolf (Alabama), Twista (Chicago), Busta Rhymes (New York), Twisted Insane (Kansas City), D-Loc (California).

All impress, but it's Busta who draws the best reviews, with XXL even wondering if it's the 38-year-old machine-gunner's best verse ever.

Check out the nine rappers "light years ahead of [their] peers," and let us know if you think any of 'em can hold candle to Busa Busss.
