This season is tied with Season 4 for having the most female rappers, despite not having a female vs female battle.
This season has the most US Presidents as rappers, with a total of four, being Thomas Jefferson, Donald Trump, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt.
However, six Presidents appeared altogether, with Barack Obama and George Washington making cameo appearances.
