Top Ten Epic Rap Battles of History

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Blackbeard vs Al Capone

First: The flow of both rappers is sick, especially Capone's.
Second: This is one of the rap battles with the most historical allusions in it.
Third: Not only does it allude to history, but it alludes to Assassin's Creed! A battle having both historical and pop-cultural references is hard to create. Props to them for that!
Fourth: "You spent time in Alcatraz- I'm sure you were fine if you dropped the soap as little as you drop dope lines." hilarious.

I mean that rat nest beard's trapped so many crumbs this bum could get marooned and still eat lunch for a month.

42 Stan Lee vs Jim Henson

Brilliant battle, and the most clean one in the series, with a total of 0 swears! A funky beat, great insults, and I laugh every time Kermit raps, but I love this battle because of Walt Disney's cameo at the end! Brilliant, and way to make Disney look like a house of torture and insanity!

I loved the way they put all the little cameos into their raps, and the psychological meaning it had with Walt and Stan mentioning Jim's death at an early age. Yet aside from that the lyrics were genius. By far my #1.

This is hands down the best one in the whole series and it gave us the grim reminder that one day Disney will own everything

The beat for Jim was great. Walt won that battle. I loved the outro music too.

43 Rick Grimes vs Walter White

Characters from my two favorite shows ever, how could I not choose this, "No one saw Shane coming, except for your wife."

This is just it. I've seen most others and I've never liked any better than this (except the Vader vs Hitler ones)

I'm so sorry for the narration that bites by zombie at the end...

They nailed the characters perfect. The 'Carl, get back' was spot on!

44 Thomas Edison vs Nikola Tesla

The wordplay in this one is some of their best writing. The only problem is that for people to really enjoy it, they need to know the history of Edison and Tesla, and the nature of the technology being developed.

"The world would curse the con Edison with every utility"... that's gold right there.

I give this my vote in part because I almost cracked a rib laughing the first time I saw it and in part because I keep watching it again because the flow and lyrics are so great. For those that don't know the story and want ANOTHER laugh today, there's a comic explaining it all in brief at (no dry science, I promise)

Nikola was way more intelligent and if it weren't for him I wouldn't be typing this right now. Plus the lyrics were awesome and so catchy

45 Theodore Roosevelt vs Winston Churchill

Love it, great costumes, sick bars. Amazing.

One of the best Epic Rap Battles to date.

The opening line made me die, "Bully! A challange! I love competition, tell me, where would I mount the stuffed head of a Winston".

The best of their newer ERB's, definitely deserves a spot in the top 10. Also the ending is epic!

46 Michael Jordan vs Muhammad Ali

One of my favorite ones because almost every line was a funny insult unlike other battles.

It had both flow and epic lines. They actually rapped properly instead of others like clint eastwoods talk-rapping

Ali offended me when he said space jam sucks - maloneyscott

47 Marilyn Monroe vs Cleopatra

'Your sandy vagina has a seven year itch' cracked me up!

! It's the dirtiest one!

This one was rough

Definitely the best female erb. Hilariously funny! I would say that this one has the best sexual humor of any erb out there.

48 Gordon Ramsay vs Julia Child

To me, this was the best rap battle in season 5. Julia easily won, by the way.

Am I the only who thought Julia child won because of charm?!

Gordon Ramsay was play perfectly I felt he won

Don't know who the heck Julia child is, but ordon ramsay creamed it!

49 Sarah Palin vs Lady Gaga

"I sound more intelligent than you when I fart! I wonder if you even know how to spell the word 'art'! You don't belong in politics, you belong in a hockey game! History will regret you like John McCain! "

This line made Lady Gaga win in my opinion.

50 Terminator vs. Robocop

Terminator won will the balls line.

The music sounds like Deadpool vs. Boba Fett

51 Cleopatra vs Marilyn Monroe

A women's rap. Kimmy Gatewood sucks anyway.

52 Shaka Zulu vs Julius Caesar

Very well thought out lyrics and design. It flowed well and didn't have untimely pauses that plague some of the others. Probably the closest rap battle in my opinion but I'd give it to Caesar

This one was awesome and is it me or does Julius Caesar look like supermariologan?

53 Superman vs Goku

Already on the list, please remove.

55 George Washington vs William Wallace

Nice Peter makes GW flow so hard and look so thug. Especially his first verse. Willy! He goes off too and the accent is spot on. This one is my personal favorite.

Arrivedarci! This is one of the most funniest and witty battle ever.

58 Darth Vader vs Hitler 2

This should be way higher. Both Vader and Hitler have some awesome lines and its probably the best of the Hitler vs Vader trilogy.
