Trivia

  • This is the first season:
  • 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 least rappers that are physically portrayed by EpicLLOYD.
  • 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.
    • If Ronald Reagan's appearance in Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton had not been scrapped, the total number of Presidential rappers would be five.
  • This is the last season to be produced by Maker Studios.
