Important Poll: Rapper or Cistulli?

I ask you this, dear reader, and I ask you quite frankly — who is responsible for the following quote:

“Heard you got the cops with you. That’s a goddamn shame, you talk on your album, I thought you’d have a block with you.”

Was it from Styles P, a member of the Yonkers, N.Y., based hip-hop triumvirate known as The Lox?

Styles P
Styles P, who shares Cistulli’s love of hats with single block letters.

Or was it uttered by Carson Cistulli to noted baseballer and rapper Trevor Bauer, as retaliation for a (possibly imagined) slight directed towards Bauer’s former Diamondbacks teammate — and Cistulli mancrush — Chase Anderson?

Both Cistulli and Bauer seem to like their odds of winning a duel.
