Animeme Rap Battles: How Abstract Concepts Fight

Differences get settled through insult-based hip-hop.

Debating who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman has begun to wear on us. What about the people or things that really matter – namely, Memes? And, sure, they could punch or kick each other, but wouldn’t it be more fun if the memes slung sweet rhymes at one another? Should they be animated? Of course they should! Put all of these very specific and intriguing stipulations together and you have the new web series, Animeme Rap Battles. It’s everything you never knew you always wanted.

In the first installment on the Nerdist Channel, the most epic of awesome-guy throw downs occurs as Jonathan Goldsmith, the Dos Equis Most Interesting Man in the World, takes on Isaiah Mustafa from the Old Spice commercials. Arguably, they are the two coolest and most dudely dudes in all of existence and this was a fight long anticipated. One would assume Goldsmith has the advantage, being that people often thank him for punching them, but Mustafa has backup: a rabid Terry Crews!

The two stalwarts of manliness lay into each other with jibes about the other’s respective products while elaborating on how much better they are at, well, just about everything. They’re magical men. When two guys in towels battle another guy and his beard, the real winner is you. To see more subscribe to Animeme Rap Battles, Official Comedy and The Nerdist Channel.
