Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 meets 8 Mile as two titans of the video game franchise square off in an epic rap battle of immense proportions. In order to decide who is the better villain and settle their differences, Albert Wesker and Dr. Victor von Doom throw down with words rather than missiles.
YouTuber Maximilian is known for uploading video tutorials, breakdowns, and examples of his skill set ranging from Street Fighter 4 to Lost Planet 2, and more recently, Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Maximilian’s latest feature is a three-part series called “Assist Me.” What began as a thorough character tutorial on Jill Valentine for MVC3, turned into an epic rap battle between Doom and Wesker.
Maximilian’s inspiration for this rap battle parody came from YouTube user NicePeter, who is widely known for his webseries “Epic Rap Battles of History.” There have been Hitler vs. Darth Vader, Mr. T vs. Mister Rogers, and Dr. Suess vs. Shakespeare — all of which are funny, and I highly suggest you check them out!
The video was directed and edited by Maximilian himself. He collaborated with Zaid “Redrapper” Tabani, who dabbles in creating rap lyrics and music with video game themes involving Street Fighter, Marvel Vs. Capcom, and more.
Check out the epic rap battle in the video below:
I do hope that Maximilian continues to make more “Epic Rap Battles of MVC3″ as his collaboration with Zaid Tabani proved to be a great success. I would definitely like to see Morrigan vs. Iron Man or Wolverine vs. Ryu. If there is to be another Marvel vs. Capcom 3 rap battle, who would you like to see face off?
