It’s not every day you read news about Darth Vader and Hitler having a rap battle, and it’s especially not every day you read that they’re going to have a rematch. But, that’s what is going to happen during the next season of the popular original online series “Epic Rap Battles of History.”
The live-action music comedy series is one of the few online series to have more than 300 million views and more than one million subscribers in less than a year. The new season, which has been greenlit by next-generation media company, Maker Studios, will have not only the anticipated rematch against Vader and Hitler, but also have the Mario Brothers vs. The Wright Brothers, guest stars from television, film, and online and additional behind-the-scenes episodes and content. The first episode of the new season is now available for viewing at the show’s new channel.
Nice Peter, one of the top 10 most subscribed musicians on YouTube and named the new “King of Dot Comedy” by G4′s “Attack of the Show,” and EpicLLOYD of his touring improvisational troop, Mission IMPROVable, are the co-creators of “Rap Battles.”
