Ten years ago, on May 25th, 2011, YouTuber MrDeshawnRaw, posted a video titled "The Rap Battle [Parody],” the first installment of a popular series of satirical Youtube videos, parodying battle rap. The series consists of a rapper named Supa Hot Fire battling multiple rappers, which has included special guests: Soulja Boy, Chris Rock, Mute Spitta,Timothy DeLaGhetto, Hopsin and more.
The Rap Battle Parody video gained over 62 Million views in less than two years before being deleted in 2013. It has since gone on to garner more than 2 billion views through re-uploads as internet users took creative license using the original video clip and sound recordings to dish out screengrabs or GIFs to express themselves.
Last July, Portion hosted the sale of a one-of-a-kind NFT featuring Supa Hot Fire vs B- Bone: the most famous scene in the series where two "rappers " battle amongst a crowd. The climax peaks with Supa Hot Fire handing his rival B-Bone a piece of paper, before slapping it out of B-Bones hand and saying "I broke up with my ex-girl. Here's her number."
The NFT sold at auction for 5 ETH at the time.
