It seems as though the downpour this past weekend didn’t douse the fire burning between local MCs Madchild and Snak the Ripper.
Madchild might be on tour, but that didn’t stop him from making time to record a response to Snak’s latest diss track, “Child Abuse”, which was released on November 5. It follows Madchild’s first diss track, “The Funeral”, which was released a day earlier. While Snak’s songs have all been accompanied by angry but well-shot videos, Madchild’s returns are free of any eye candy.
All this hate stems from a deleted Tweet by Madchild that called Snak a “loud mouth piece of shit talking punk bitch”. (Madchild allegedly left an apology on Snak’s voicemail after deleting the tweet, which he posted on Twitter on October 28.) Snak’s response to the tweet, “Assisted Suicide” followed on October 30.
Even though I'm on tour… Be ready for Monday morning ???
My response …

Opening with the proclamation, “The man to beat me hasn’t been born yet,” “Fatal Attraction” addresses every allegation Snak makes about Madchild in “Child Abuse”, from Snak’s claims that he’s still using drugs to the fact that he’s due to retire.
“A million rappers older than me and they ain’t retired yet/Think your spitting flames, I’m a fucking fire hydrant/I’m vibrant, a werewolf and a vampire, a hybrid/Your diss is just regurgitating everything that I’ve said,” raps Madchild in the first verse.
Woven among some not-so-subtly worded death threats, he goes on to tell Snak to “check [his] estrogen” and references the hype made over Snak’s video for “Child Abuse”, saying “Trying to steal my enterprise like it’s Star Trek/Perfect video, that diss was a car wreck”.
Near the end of the track, Madchild tries to come out as the good guy by bringing up their young fans on more than one occasion, citing them as the reason for his apology voicemail: “That apology was for the children/and the movements that we both worked so hard to build with/’Cause I don’t want to see kids fighting over a rap war/Not Stompdown Killaz and not Baxwar”.
But by the last few seconds of the track, all bets are off. Madchild doesn’t forget Snak’s refusal to participate in a rap battle for charity—as proposed in “The Funeral”—and ends the diss by calling Snak a pussy.
It’s clear that neither MC is ready to back down. Snak has responded to Madchild’s accusations about not participating in a battle for charity, citing Stompdown Killaz involvement with other charitable activities, but Madchild’s Twitter has been virtually silent since today’s release.
Listen to Madchild’s “Fatal Attraction” here. We’d tell you to watch it, but like “The Funeral”, the only visual is a poorly Photoshopped image of the two in better days.
