Rarely do we give a shit about a revamp of a TV show. Yay, nostalgia. Bring this back, bring that back. Whatever. But THIS? This we’re hyped about – the return of MTV’s “Celebrity Deathmatch.”
“Deathmatch” was an essential part of MTV’s peak period, combining cartoonish gore with the outsized music personalities of the time and synthesizing both elements into a fun, hilarious, and edgy show. Now it’s returning on MTV2, and according to a press release, the show will be updated “”for a world of social media and hourly Twitter wars.” If that doesn’t sound entertaining, we don’t know what does.
Naturally, we want to see some clay blood spilled between specific artists, so we broke down five fights we need to have happen on the revamped “Celebrity Deathmatch.”
Iggy Azalea vs. Azealia Banks
Who doesn’t want to see this go down? The lanky Aussie versus the scrappy Harlemite. You should know who we have our money on, but remember – kangaroos punch pretty hard, too.
50 Cent vs. Rick Ross
These two never officially buried the hatchet, and between 50’s involvement in the boxing industry and Rozay’s recent Ross Fit regimen, now’s as good a time as ever to see these two duke it out claymation style.
Lil Wayne vs. Young Thug
These two would probably look hilarious in their clay versions. Plus, they’re both so cartoonish in real life that the possibilities are endless once they become animated. And whose side would Birdman take?
The Entire Wu vs. RZA
RZA has always been into the martial arts, but these days, it seems like everyone else in the Wu-Tang wants to get their stomp on against the Clan’s leader. Imagine what kind of brutal ending “Celebrity Deathmatch” could cook up for this epic bout.
Drake vs. Kanye West
Put the passive aggressive shit to the side and let these two rip each other fragile limb from limb. They could incorporate Kim, Rihanna, Amber Rose, and any other characters needed. Kanye could rock his new Yeezy line in the ring (though it’d be soaked in clay blood by the time the fight was over) and Drake could wield a hookah as a weapon. Sounds perfect.
