Epic Rap Battle: Teacher Takes Teen Rapper to School
Blizzard vs Mark Grist: Class is in Session
When 17-year-old Blizzard (Bradley when he's at home) challenged his teacher, Mark Grist, to a rap battle, the warning sign of what lay ahead was that Grist accepted.
Mark Grist delivers three rounds of brutal smackdown, which you can see in the video below: Grist disses Blizzard, Blizzard's mom, World of Warcraft, Twilight, and everything else in Blizzard's Manchester-area world.
The rap battle video below comes to us via Don't Flop. It was posted in December 2011, but is getting new life via Buzzfeed. It's not that Blizzard does a bad job, but he just can't handle Mark Grist: the poet just has too much rhyming experience.
