Epic Rap Battles: Bonnie and Clyde vs. Romeo and Juliet

+While the rap battle pits two lovers against two thieving lovers, anyone who knows how either story ends is aware of how this battle gets played out. The folks at Epic Rap Battles have put together another historical masterpiece, pitting the dangerous Bonnie and Clyde against forlorn lovers Romeo and Juliet. Bonnie and Clyde start off the battle and throw some fire, knocking Romeo and Juliet for being soft, however Romeo fires back with a surprising Shakespearean flow. Perhaps my favorite line is the John Leguizamo reference to 1996’s Romeo + Juliet. Remember that one? Claire Danes, Leonardo DiCaprio, Paul Rudd. You know, the one that’s set in modern day with modern music with non-modern words.

While the rap battle pits two lovers against two thieving lovers, anyone who knows how either story ends is aware of how this battle gets played out. It doesn’t end well for either of the couples, but such is love.
