Hip-hop reacts to Chicago Cubs' World Series victory

Last night's breaking of the 108-year curse sent shockwaves across the hip-hop map, including hitting rappers in Chicago and Cleveland. You won't believe some of these responses!

Last night the Chicago Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years. That's over twice the age of the entire history of hip-hop. That's so old, the inventer of the turntable was still alive.

That in mind, it's incredible to see all of hip-hop react at the same time to such a historic moment. Here's some of our favorites.
