Epic Rap Battles of History

Things I thought I'd never see: The Ukrainian Crisis As Told Through Hip-Hop.

Eastern European Nazi Hip Hop Videos... roll the concept around in your mind a little bit so you can examine just how fractally wrong that is.

Years from now, some laid back Ukrainian youth will reflect on how right-wing rap supplemented a politically deficition school education.

"And I know. I know because of Andrey Donskoy."

Maybe doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

To borrow a phrase from P.J. O'Rourke - it brings together a little of the worst of every culture in the world.

Were they backed by the Taliban Modern Jazz Ensemble?

Yeah, well, I don't think "The Battle of Donuzlav Bay" will be nearly as catchy with a rap style as "The Battle of New Orleans" was with it's twangy country style.

Wow. The whole concept is....like a zoot-suited telling of the Warsaw Ghetto story.
Hell, for all I know, that was done, too.
Gerry, you'll get your thumbs cut off for that. I don't think even snapping fingers is halal to those weird-beards (no offense to Weer'd Beard).

I kind of liked the second one. And I'll admit, I'm partisan on this one, but it's more of an Anti-Fa rap video. Those marchers in the video are West Uke/Galicians marching in support of Bandera.
