The world would be a lot better place if all the countries can just hold rap battles instead of bombing each other. But unless epic rap battles can somehow line the pockets of war contractors that’s not going to happen anytime soon. Thankfully, we can turn to each other (specifically clever YouTubers) to fill our craving for an old skool beef settled by mad lyrics.
Epic Rap Battles of History have pitted notable movie characters, actors and scholars to a lyrical showdown that’s a combination of the movie 8 Mile, an SNL skit and a history lesson.
Here’s five epic rap battles of history we wished really happened.
BRUCE LEE VS CLINT EASTWOOD
STEVE JOBS VS BILL GATES
ALBERT EINSTEIN VS STEPHEN HAWKING
MASTER CHIEF VS LEONIDAS
CLEOPATRA VS MARILYN MONROE
