Last night's second presidential debate was among the most anticipated in modern history. After the record-breaking first debate saw more than 84 million viewers tune in (on TV at least), this sequel was can't-miss television, especially with the late breaking Friday news of Trump's controversial graphically detailed audio recording surfacing.

With how much hip-hop has discussed Trump this election cycle, it's no surprised how active rap Twitter was last night during the debates. Here's some of the most notable responses (and check out this live fact-checking we did during the debate).
