    So there's this series for those of you don't know on Youtube called "Epic Rap Battles of History". They place famous icons in a battle of rap, and then asks the viewers at the end who won. Anyone else enjoy this series?

    I saw this a while back. Among the ones I've watched, my favorite was Hawking vs. Einstein. Incidentally, the last time I checked, the most one-sided battle was Beethoven vs. Beiber (point Beethoven) and the closest was Wright brothers vs. Mario brothers (Wright won by 3 votes, out of 3000+ votes total).

    I thought the wright brothers destroyed the mario bros personally, i think the closest one i saw was bruce lee vs clint eastwood. However, my fave has to be robins rap in the middle of the batman vs sherlock holmes battle xD

    A friend of mine loves these to death and tries to get everyone to watch them. I personally don't find them that funny, some of it is kinda meh.

    I really love that beat in the Apple PC video.

    The one I watched was Obama vs Romney with Abraham Lincoln. (And I just found out that Nice Peter played Abe, I LOVE NICE PETER!!!!)

    Kind of off topic: some of my fav old songs by him, this is years old:

    smoke that weed

    I stumbled across the Einstein vs Hawking one when I was searching for something else a few months ago, and thought it was kinda good. Saw "Mr .T vs Mr. Rogers" in the related videos, laughed at my childhood, and then continued watching them. They're pretty good, and I'm always looking forward to more. I thought the recent Bruce Lee vs Clint Eastwood was really good. Other decent ones include Leonidas vs Master Chief, Sinatra vs Freddy Mercury, and pretty much all of the female battles.
