Information on the rapper
Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is the 44th and current president of the United States. He became president in 2008, defeating Senator John McCain and becoming the first African-American president to serve in office. Before he was elected president, he was Senator of Illinois for 4 months. He was re-running for a second term as president in November 2012, with his major challenge being Republican Mitt Romney. Obama was inaugurated again on January 20, 2012.
My fellow Americans, let me start off by thanking the ERB for onhosting this, ahh, most certainly epic rap battle. Hi, I'm Barack (don't call me Barry, I don't go by that anymore). I'm President of the United States of America -- the first African American to ever hold that position -- and a member of the Democratic party. I was, ahhh, born in Hawaii (America, last time I checked) and have a birth certificate to prove it My parents divorced soon after, but hey, that didn't stop me from attending Harvard Law School, serving as an Illinois State Senator, and developing my ah, stuttery, "thoughtful", oratory style before running for president. I rode into office in the 2008 election on a promise of change and hope for a socialist better country. During my term, I set into motion efforts to pull troops out of Iraq (mission accomplished August 2010), kill Osama Bin Laden (slam dunk, nailed it), close our special military prison Guantanamo bay (we're, ah, still working on it), and fix the economy (stimulus takes, ahh, some time). I openly support gay marriage, heck, I just want everyone to be as happy as I am with my beautiful, powerful, dignified, giant of a wife, Michelle.
They say your father was a great man, you must be what's left,
Need to stop hatin' on gays, let 'em teach you how to dress,
You've got the momma jeans and a Mister Fantastic face,
So rich and white, it's like I'm running against a cheesecake!
Republicans need a puppet and you fit,
Got their hands so far up your rear, call you Mitt,
I'm the head of state, you're like a head of cabbage,
'Bout to get smacked by my stimulus package (ahaha),
You're a bad man with no chance, you can't even touch me,
I got four more years (two terms) in the White House, just trust me,
I hoped you saved your best rhymes for the second half,
Cause right now, I'm 47% through kicking your ass!
Uh, look, I respect all religions, uh, but it might get crazy,
If the White House has a first, second, and a third lady!
Uhhh, let me be clear, uh, don't get it twisted,
We'll see how pretty your face is after my fist has kissed it!
Oh yeah? Well, you're stupid!
- Obama and Abe Lincoln (who also appeared in Epic Rap Battles of History 23) are currently the only American presidents to rap in ERB.
- George Washington made a cameo in Epic Rap Battles of History 10, but did not have a speaking role.
- Theodore Roosevelt was an ERB News Host twice, but has not had a rapping part, yet.
- John F. Kennedy made a cameo in Epic Rap Battles of History 20, but did not have a speaking role.
- Ronald Reagan's hand made a cameo in Epic Rap Battles of History 33, but did not have a speaking role.
- Iman Crosson, also known as Alphacat, is famous for his Barack Obama impersonations around YouTube. So, it's pretty clear why he was chosen for the role in this battle.
