Here are some hip-hop Twitter reactions to the VP debate

We couldn't find anyone who was impressed.

While the first Presidential debate had record-breaking viewership, the first and only 2016 vice presidential debate had not-so-much.

The hip-hop community was particularly quiet about it, perhaps because the debates ran directly opposite of the largely acclaimed BET Hip-Hop Awards.

But rap's few responses to the debates are still worth a read. We expect much more this Sunday when Clinton and Trump square off once again.

It's also perhaps worth noting the sheer number of people who negatively likened the Vice Presidential debate to a rap battle.
