This week’s video comes from Joanne Manaster over at Psivid.

According to Manaster:

Epic Rap Battles of History is the creative brainchild of Epic Lloyd and Nice Peter on Youtube. They have produced three seasons of Epic Rap Battles featuring put downs between similar yet disparate historical and modern figures. For instance, authors Shakespeare and Dr. Seuss get in a verbal knock-down while musicians Beethoven and Bieber spend time trading barbs about whose music gets more women swooning. Jobs and Gates have rap battled as have Obama and Romney. No one is safe!

Today we see American scientist Bill Nye (played by Nice Peter), battling English physicist Sir Isaac Newton (played by Weird Al Yankovic). At the second half of the battle American astrophysicist and COSMOS star Neil deGrasse Tyson (played by Tay Zonday) adds his two cents!

Enjoy!
