In preparation for the most epic rap battle on Fox's "Empire," Twitter created emojis for #TeamHakeem and #TeamFreda.

Hakeem Lyon (Bryshere Y. Gray) challenges Freda Gatz (Bre-z) to a rap battle, a winner-takes-all fight for the dynasty. Everyone seems to think this whole thing is a big mistake and that Freda is going to easily crush him.

Hakeem makes a late entrance into the highly anticipated blinged out battle and starts it off strong, but Freda comes back harder.

In Round 2, Hakeem gets the whole club jumping and yelling his name -- and how could you not with that Craig Mack beat bumping? Then, taking the entire audience by surprise, he announces he's dropping his last name.

"From here on out, I go by Hakeem" he says, smashing the lights out on the "Lyon" part of his sign, officially winning the battle.

Hakeem is now the Madonna of the rap game -- and feeling like a King -- but just wait until he finds out he's also the baby Daddy of Anika's (Grace Gealey) bun in the oven.

The drama continues on "Empire" on Wednesday's at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
