“Epic Rap Battles of History” Is Back for Another Warped Season

Your favorite historical figures are spitting more mad rhymes as the web series returns.

Wouldn’t the world be a better place if, instead of wars, terrorism, or government shutdowns, disputes were settled with old-fashioned rap battles? That’s what we think, at least, so we’ll be tuning into the new season of one of our favorite web series, “Epic Rap Battles of History.” For the uninitiated, the show features its creators—Peter Shukoff and Lloyd Ahlquist—dressing up as historical and pop culture figures who might have a beef and having them battle rap,8 Mile-style. (Three of our favorites are Obama vs. Romney, Santa Claus vs. Moses, and the incredible Darth Vader vs. Hitler.) Check out the teaser trailer for the new season, then dust off your history books and prepare for more dope-ass battles.

Season 3 of “Epic Rap Battles of History” launches Monday, October 7.
