You acted so robotic Star Trek's like, "We need Lieutenant Data back!"
I'm Tony Stark with a
sprinkle tossed in, James Bond
And I've been flossin' since you double-crossed the Winklevoss twins!
Mark Zuckerberg: Data was a lieutenant commander, to start,
But I wouldn't expect you to understand an org chart.

And I'm spitting fire like I'm hot (hot) sauce (sauce)!
You can't sneak up on Zuck; I don't even fucking blink!
I'm the CEO of KNOWING WHAT YOU THINK, INC.!
I've been looking up your family; it gets dark, my god!
Couldn't clean your daddy's laundry with Apar-Tide-pods!

Set your self-driving truck to haul your ass home
'Cause this battle's like PayPal: you got owned!
Call me Musk 'cause I reek of wealth!
This is the second official battle not associated with a season, after
Deadpool vs Boba Fett. This is the first battle to feature a
character interacting with the subtitles.
This battle was released 698 days, or nearly two years, after the
last battle (released January 9th, 2017), marking the longest gap between two successive battles. This is the first battle to have a character's face modified in the thumbnail, as
Mark Zuckerberg's eyes are enlarged to appear more unnerving. This is the seventh battle overall in which both title rappers are real people who are currently alive, after
Sarah Palin vs Lady Gaga, Nice Peter vs EpicLLOYD, Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney, Oprah Winfrey vs Ellen DeGeneres, Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton and Nice Peter vs EpicLLOYD 2.
This episode was the basis of an episode of
Adults React by TheFineBros.
 It is one of eight battles to be featured in a React video by TheFineBros. This is the first and only Epic Rap Battles of History released in 2018, not counting
PewDiePie vs T-Series. Throughout Zuckerberg's first verse, his laptop displays this wiki's
home page. Zuckerberg's organizational chart has
Chuck Norris' name listed, along with the Epic Rap Battles of History series. This is the first battle since
Frederick Douglass vs Thomas Jefferson where each rapper has two verses and there are no third-party rappers. This is the first battle since Terminator vs Robocop to feature only Peter and Lloyd, either as rappers or as cameos.
However, if the ED-209 is counted, then it would be the first rap battle since Mozart vs Skrillex to feature no one other than Peter and Lloyd.
This is the first battle released by ERB since leaving Maker Studios (now
Disney Digital). As heard in the behind the scenes, a different beat was used when recording and writing before switching to the current one.
During Musk's line, "Call me Musk. (Uh!) I'm here to help. (Yeah!)", and between the lines "Why don't you Lean In and FaceMash my musky Dutch taint!" and "I'm destined to rep Earth; you sold us out for some net worth!", he holds the Not-a-Flamethrower, a device invented by one of Musk's companies, The Boring Company.
Mark Zuckerberg's desk is positioned so that he would be facing backwards while he is in the
Philip A. Hart Senate Office Building. At 0:28, the word 'you' is missing from the subtitles.
At 0:46 on the org chart, the name Sheryl Sanders is listed. However, the correct name of Facebook's COO is actually Sheryl Sandberg.
At 0:59, Zuckerberg's laptop screen turns black abruptly.
At 1:50, Musk's phone camera is keyed out with the green screen.
In the karaoke version of the video, the source file for the screenshot for the suggestion, PewDiePie vs T-Series, is missing, making it a red box with multilingual translations of "media offline".
