Epic Rap Battles of History, ERB for short, is a internet webshow created by Nice Peter and Epic Lloyd the plot is that two people from history (fictional or real) rap battle. The show debuted on YouTube on September 26, 2010.
Peter and Lloyd first saw each other at a comedy club where Lloyd suggested the idea to Peter who loved it. They met once again in a neighbor hood and decided to make A skit at the club about Lloyd's idea. Peter thought it would be one of the weaker skits in the show so he scrapped it. Peter contacted Lloyd asking him to meet. Peter revealed that he had the intent of making the idea a one shot video much to Lloyd's delight. When it was viewed on youtube they put the line "Who won? Who's next? You decide!" as a joke. But when people started requesting more battles it became popular and is still on today.
