Rasputin vs Stalin. Epic Rap Battles of History Season 2 finale
Epic Rap Battles of History, also officially known as ERB or ERBoH, is a YouTube video series, created by Peter Shukoff (aka Nice Peter) and Lloyd Ahlquist (aka EpicLLOYD). The main idea behind the show is to bring famous historical and pop figures, both real and fictional, to confront each other in the form of a rap battle.
It initially started as an idea for an improvisation show, however after meeting lots of difficulties, Shukoff and Ahlquist decided to shift it into a YouTube series. After the first three episodes, shot with the budget of 50$ each, the episode “Darth Vader vs. Hitler” skyrocketed the popularity of the show. In the early episodes Shukoff and Ahlquist enact the roles themselves but later guest appearances of internet celebrities followed.
“Rasputin vs Stalin” was ERB Season 2 Finale episode, in which two prominent figures of Russian history, Gregory Rasputin and Josef Stalin came to battle. In the course of the episode they are joined by other famous Russian politicians, such as Lenin, Gorbachev and Putin. At the end of the episode it was officially announced that Epic Rap Battles of History will return for the third season in autumn 2013.
