Jigga vs. Talib Kweli

This one's a little more hypothetical, but I love the premise. Every Black Album aficionado should immediately recognize the line:
"If skills sold, truth be told, I'd probably be, lyrically, Talib Kweli."
And any Black Star aficionado should immediately remember the lesser known response in "Ghetto Show" where Kweli says:
"If lyrics sold then truth be told, I'd probably be, just as rich and famous as Jay-Z."
This all happened after Kanye helped to bridge the gap between these two Brooklyn emcees on the remix to Kweli's own Ye-produced single. And now you got enough music for a new "Favors" segment on this blog right here.

Talib Kweli - Get By (Remix feat. Mos Def, Jay-Z, Kanye West, & Busta Rhymes)
Jay-Z - Moment of Clarity
Talib Kweli - Ghetto Show (feat. Common & Anthony Hamilton)

... and do the John Wall.
