Bringing Stephen Colbert to Urban/Suburban Hip Hop Settings

Having done some Colbert Report catch-up today, it seems I missed a fairly hilarious rap battle between Stephen Colbert and RNC chairman Michael Steele from last Thursday. Colbert's rap is at the 2:30 mark. Steele is at the 4 minute mark. Enjoy.

Colbert certainly got some good jabs in there. My personal favorites are "Your beats are so fat you could call them Rush" and "Your game's a dying moose and I'm Sarah Palin." But there's no question here that the battle belonged to Steele, ending with "Those numbnuts on Capitol Hill can blow me." If he really talked like that, maybe the Republicans wouldn't be where they are today.
