Marilyn Monroe:

Whose rap flow's the dopest? Marilyn Monroe's is!

Overthrow pharaohs who oppose me like Moses!

You could never kick my ass, so kiss my clitoris!

This ugly hag and KassemG got matching noses!


(Oh no!) You better hold more than your skirt, miss, please.

I'm the Queen of the Nile, so just bow down to me!

Plus, you got so much experience down on your knees.

Married a writer, but I don't even think you can read!

You'll sleep with any ugly dude who says he likes it hot!

Even Joe DiMaggio took a swing in your batter's box!

I'm a descendant of the Gods; don't anger me, trick!

You'll lose this battle like your bout with barbiturates!

Marilyn Monroe:

I had some ugly boys, but you're forgetting the others:

Marlon Brando and the Kennedys, while you fucked your own brothers!

You think you're so chic up in your fancy palace.

Gettin' Lo on Mark Antony, tossing Caesar's salad.

You wear too much eyeliner for anyone to adore you.

You might as well be working the door at Sephora!

I got an ass that won't quit; you had an asp and got bit, on the tit!

Somebody wrap this bitch back up in a carpet!


You still got no children after your third marriage!

You lost so many babies, we should call you Miss Carriage!

You got an hourglass figure, but that's about it!

A Candle in the Wind that can't act for shit!

Marilyn Monroe:

Translate this into hieroglyphs:

Your sandy vagina has a Seven Year Itch!

My best friends are diamonds; you can't beat me! Quit trippin'.

Step off and walk your ass home like an Egyptian!

Scrapped Lyrics


You're going to lose this battle like your battle with barbiturates.




  • This is the first battle in which both Nice Peter and EpicLLOYD make an appearance without having a rapping role.
  • This is the first battle to have both female rappers portrayed by women.
  • This is the first battle where at least one rapper has more than two verses.
  • This is the first battle to have the same rapper both start and finish the battle (Marilyn Monroe).
  • This is the first battle to feature an animal in the thumbnail and cover art.
  • Both rappers passed away in August of their respective years. 
  • This is the third battle to have a rapper begin their verse before their opponent finishes.
  • On August 22nd, 2016, "We need more female characters in season 5. Who do you want to see?" was written in the description of the video.


  • This is the first battle in which Nice Peter:
    • does not rap.
    • makes a cameo appearance that is not someone he has rapped as before.


  • On mobile devices and when the link is embedded on a third party website, the Youtube thumbnail will sometimes appear as a frame from Monroe's second verse. This is a glitch, as there is already a custom thumbnail made for the battle.
  • In the description of the video, Marilyn Monroe's name is misspelled as Marilyn Mornoe.
  • During the line, "Marlon Brando and the Kennedys, while you fucked your own brothers!", Monroe's left hand is cut off.
  • During the line, "You think you're so chic up in your fancy palace", "you're" is misspelled as "you."
