Rap Battle

Rap Battle


Two improvisers get given two contrasting characters from history, or celebrities. They then get a topic from the audience and do a rap battle, the audience votes who wins!


Split the group into two teams of three or more. Ask the audience for a name. One person from team A will step forward and offer a two-line rap where their team must shout out the rhyming word for the second line. If they fail, the rapper is eliminated, if they succeed they stay on for the next turn. Now it goes to team B. When a play is eliminated, another of their team step up to take the floor. In a live show, you can split the audience to help shout the right word for their team. When someone is eliminated, change the suggestion to create new rhymes.
