Welcome to the MS's weekly song battle!

At Phixion's request we're here to vote for the new "King of New York"!

The song battle consists of two songs pitted against each other for you the users to vote for which song is better. The voting period will be open for this week (August 9-August 16) with the last two days being open for song requests. You have the entire week to vote so listen to the song, get a feel for it, and then vote!

"One Mic"-Nas vs. "Hard Knock Life"-Jay-Z
