EPIC RAP BATTLES OF HISTORY!
THOMAS EDISON!
VERSUS!
NIKOLA TESLA!
BEGIN!

Edison:
Step up, you'll be shocked when I spit and start static
Ill rip your style and add it to my long list of patents
While you were busy digging ditches and burning bridges
Im pumping out inventions, stacking riches so go back to your pigeons!
You're a geek! Plagued by OCD
You never had sex but you'll sure get screwed by me!
Ill crush you, Tesla! There's just no putting it gently
I dont alternate my flow, I diss you directly!

Tesla:
I see a universe of infinite energy
But no potential for threat from this enemy
So you can call me Tesla! Nikola! Impeccably dressed!
Giving lessons in electrical nemesis this'll be on the test
So confess to your thefts and let the whole world know
What this Serbian did for the Wizard of Menlo
History is getting rewritten and I have reddit
Your best invention was a way to steal credit

Edison:
The truth Hertz: You're broke and washed up
Dont give a smidgen 'bout your vision if they cant make a buck
I conduct business! Understood things you never could!
So dope that I even make New Jersey look good!
Im on the record I invented! You got duped, there I said it!
And ill bet ya 50,000 dollars that you'll never forget it
Without me, here's a taste of what this battle would be
No lights, No camera, No sound. See?

Tesla:
You fool! You think that you can touch me with this?
You couldnt hand my gifts with your greedy little mind!
Whats inside mine was ahead of its own time
You did not steal from me, you stole me from mankind!
Its a wireless transmission of truth!
And its a shocking real story of a banker and you
And if the people knew you stopped me from making power free
They would curse the con-Edison with every utility!

WHO WON?
WHO'S NEXT?
YOU DECIDE!
E-E-E-E-E-EPIC RAP BATTLES OF HISTORY!
