Information on the rapper

Dr. John Hamish Watson is a character in the Sherlock Holmes series. He is a former veteran who served as an Army medic in Afghanistan. He first met Sherlock Holmes when he was looking for a place to rent and Sherlock was looking for a roommate. Unlike most people, Watson is fascinated by Sherlock and finds him brilliant. He is constantly marveling at Sherlock's abilities and soon enough accompanies him in his detective work. Watson becomes very attached to Sherlock and eventually considers him his best friend.

Verse 1:

I once met a rich fellow who smelled of guano and pain.

Holmes, explain. I deduce this deuce stain is Bruce Wayne!

The billionaire?! Yes, his wealth would allow this adversary of ours

To afford the toys he needs, since he has no superpowers!

You want a battle, bat? Bring it then!

I heard he has a British butler! Good! Then he'll be used to getting served by Englishmen!

You're a wack vigilante black pantied spud with no skill!

My sidekick's a doctor, because his flows are so ill!

Verse 2:

This mustn't register on an emotional level…

First, exploit childhood tragedy…then gesture with pipe…

Watson finishes punchline…next, acknowledge compliment…

Conclude with killer catchphrase…

I believe your parents' homicide is why you mask your face.

You're shamed and traumatized and haunted by the vast disgrace

Of watching like a passive waste as momma died and daddy was dispatched with haste!

Holmes, you've cracked the case! You're a batshit crazy basket case!

Bloody good rhymes! I've got tonnes.

Dissing these dynamic douchebags was…elementary, my dear Watson. (OHHHHHHHH!)
