Rap battle between Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.

January 29, 2023 • 2:15 pm

Here’s a rap battle between Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, both vying to be the best nonviolent civil rights leader of all time. I thought it was pretty clever, what with “naan” violence and the double meaning of “hos,” among other things. Do note that the n-word (ending with the rappish “h”) is uttered by Dr. King, which is presumably ok because he’s a black rapper.

This comes from a site that has a whole series of “epic rap battle” videos, though this one was sent to me and I haven’t heard the others.

  1. The Key and Peele guys there. Their sketch show they had going was one of the best in the last 20 years. Some of their better ones:

  2. Obama vs. Romney is a good one. It was made shortly before the 2012 election.

    And my personal favorite is Teddy Roosevelt vs. Winston Churchill.

  3. I’ve known the ERB videos for a long time now, and I still find them gloriously funny, intelligent and very well made. My first one was Bill Gates against Steve Jobs, but there are so many that I love. Welcome to the club!
