About

The series consists of famous historical or pop culture figures, both fictional and real, against each other in a rap battle. Originally posted on Nice Peter's channel, they now have an exclusive channel for the battles. It first started as Lloyd's idea, which lead them to create the channel. They recently released a bonus episode to mark the upcoming sixth season.

Epic Rap Battles of History is the 77th most subscribed YouTube channel in the United States , peaking just a spot below the top ten most subscribed YouTube channels several years ago.
