(Jezebel)   Snoop Dogg plays Moses in an epic (and nonsensical) rap battle against Santa Claus. Even the pancake wearing rabbit makes more sense than this   (jezebel.com) divider line 45

I do enjoy a good epic rap battle (Sinatra vs Freddie Mercury) , was pretty funny, but this was uber-lame. Why not Santa vs. Jesus? Probably because they couldn't get Snoop to do it unless it was a slightly less blasphemous religious figure (from an xtian perspective).
 
2012-12-12 11:56:41 AM  
It pleased me. Sure I know Moses was an Egyptian Jew, but he may very well have looked like the Snoop Dog and smoked the hemp. I liked his dancers too, especially the one with the large backside.

This guy was the star of "The Chronic". His 1st album is a classic. I'll pass. I don't want to see him like this. This is Jordan with the Wizards, Ewing with the Sonics, Montana with the Chiefs (even though they did ok)...

I loved the Israe'L B.C.' line. ERB has been pretty meh since the Gates vs Jobs vs Hal battle, but there are a couple of gems here and there. I also dig EpicLloyd's Dis Raps for Hire.
 
2012-12-12 12:06:24 PM  
that was anything but epic
 
2012-12-12 12:06:32 PM  
It was certainly not the best of the Epic Rap Battles, but also not the worst. it was .. meh.

Legalization will have its drawbacks.

This just in, Jezebel sucks. And not in the good way.

along similar lines, the dj's from the annual 'Best of Bootie' mashup collections released another Christmas collection this week. http://www.bootiemashup.com/xmas/

*goes to Urban Dictionary*

Looks up "split ass in half"

Vernacular, commonly used by males, meaning, "I would like to have sexual relations with that female."

It refers to the long-standing male wish to have a phallus so large that the woman he's engaged in relations with is actually torn into two pieces.

I have no idea what Snoop's talking about, so here's Mother Teresa with a pancake on her head.

grath: nothing tops doctor who vs doc brown


As much as I like Doc Brown and the Doctor...it didn't work well as a rap battle. Rap battles need to have people that everyone knows. Not everyone knows the Doctor and even then, the more obscure characters you get the more obscure raps you get and the more it sucks.

Santa vs Jesus would have been a whole lot better. Especially if Snoop played Jesus. The comments about a black Jesus alone would have been hilarious.

My favorite of the epic rap battles is Genghis Khan versus the Easter Bunny. The premise is just so silly.

What exactly was nonsensical about that?
 
2012-12-12 12:58:54 PM  
Also, Steve Jobs v. Bill Gates was easily the best one.

This.

I love ERB of history and I am happy for them that they have gotten famous enough to get a guy like Snoop Dogg to come on. Not their best though.

Stephen Hawking vs Albert Einstein

Hulk Hogan and Macho Man VS Kim Jong-il

Michael Jackson VS Elvis Presley Elvis to MJ: " I can tell that your angry, I can't comprehend it. I stole from black culture, why are YOU offended?".

/The "Obama/Romeny", "DocBrown/DocWho" and "Batman/SherlockHolmes are all recent ones that are pretty good too

That wasn't bad at all.

"You took the christ out of christmas and just added mo' mass."

That's clever.
 
2012-12-12 01:31:16 PM  
Sure it's no Genghis Khan vs. the Easter Bunny but it's perfectly passable humor.

I can only assume you haven't seen the hawking/einstein one or the lincoln/norris one.

That was Dre's album, and it was awesome. Except for the part where he tricked us into thinking Snoop could rap.
 
2012-12-12 03:47:23 PM  
Nevermind, it looks like you meant Snoop's album after The Chronic.

/I never considered it classic, I guess.

Batman vs Holmes just sucked.

I dunno, I liked the fact that they acknowledged both the Nolan "I'm talking with rocks in my mouth" and the Adam West "I'm gonna do a live action comic book!" with the Batman. And the nod to the RDJr Holmes with the talk through.

Yeah I gotta agree with that. On a basic level I just thought Batman's flow wasn't as good as Holmes'. Holmes had it all when it comes to multisyllabic rhymes and wittier punchlines

Random Robin won the day in that one. I also have a certain appreciation for the straight-to-the-point lines line "nice hat ... dork!" and "eat it nerds!"

Hawking and Columbus still have the best one-liners though.

1. Doc Brown vs. Doctor Who
2. Clint vs. Bruce Lee
3. Superpowers vs. Kim Jong Il
4. Stephen Hawking vs Albert Einstein
shiatler vs. Darth Vader

/Monore vs. Cleopatra was good as well.

I don't care what you guys think because the youtube show he does, GGN, is funny as hell to me. Stoner comedy of course, and it's better than him doing his weak new rap and reggae songs.

What Jezebel was doing reporting on it.
 
2012-12-12 08:14:28 PM  
Snoop easily bested Claus, even with lazy lyrics. He does this for a living.

Not one of the better ones out there, but fairly amusing nonetheless.
 
2012-12-12 09:47:28 PM  
Dr Zeus vs Shakespeare or Beethoven vs Beiber are my two personal favorites.

Pretty sure I know the Hawking one, but I had to rewatch Columbus in an attempt to figure out which one-liner you mean. Nothing really leaped out at me. Fictional stain?

When did Snoop stop rapping and just start speaking normal sentence over beats and out of sync?

2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted with him and Tupac should have been the end of Snoop's career. Never has one rapper made another rapper look so bad, and it wasn't even a battle.
