George Watsky is an American spoken-word poet, rapper, and YouTuber, known for his ability to rap extraordinarily fast. His talent for fast rapping started to receive acclaim after he was the Youth Speaks Grand Slam Poetry Champion. He is also known for his viral video "Pale kid raps fast" (now known as "Watsky raps fast"), in which he raps extremely fast (it is now currently unlisted), and his album, Cardboard Castles, which he released on March 12th, 2013. His sophomore album, All You Can Do, was released on August 12th, 2014. He has been in five Epic Rap Battles of History videos to date, with two cameos and three rapping appearances: Dr. Seuss vs Shakespeare, Doc Brown vs Doctor Who, Stephen King vs Edgar Allan Poe, Hitler vs Vader 3, and Bob Ross vs Pablo Picasso.

  • Watsky was animated in Shakespeare's clothing in his music video, The Girl Next Door (To Everybody Else).[1]
    • The video also featured animated portrayals of fellow ERB guest stars KassemG and Smosh.
  • He attended VidCon in 2012 with ERB to rap as Shakespeare in a live performance of Dr. Seuss vs Shakespeare.
  • In every battle he has made a rapping appearance in, his character's second verse has included a particularly fast rap. This is a trait taken from his own fast rapping style.
  • Alongside Zach Sherwin, Key & Peele, DeStorm Power, Rhett & Link, Timothy DeLaGhetto, Kimmy Gatewood, and Dan Bull, he is one of the only guest stars to have a rapping role in more than one season.
  • His favorite characters to rap as are poets, as he is one himself.
  • All three of his characters started the battle.
    • In Doc Brown vs Doctor Who, the Tenth Doctor, who was portrayed by Nice Peter, started off the battle, but then Watsky portrayed the Doctor in his second verse as the Fourth Doctor, an alternate version of the same character.
  • William Shakespeare is the only one of his characters who did not rap against a character portrayed by Zach Sherwin.
  • Both of the poets he has played have rapped in a metrical foot (Shakespeare with iambic pentameter and Poe with trochaic octameter). They also both refer to this fact in their first verse.
  • He has collaborated with Wax on the songs "Kick Monday (In the Nutsack)"[2] and "Give a Hater a Hug".[3]
