Thanks to Epic Rap Battles of History, we can now watch George R.R. Martin and J.R.R. Tolkien rap battle each other. A suspenders-clad Martin starts off strong, declaring, “there’s a new literary Lord in the Ring.” Not to be outdone, Tolkien fires back, “you’re a pirate / you even stole my R. R.” Watch the full video above to decide who wins.
