Information on the location
The Somme is a river located in Picardy, northern France. It is most notable for being the location of the Battle of the Somme, which involved British and French troops warring against German troops from July to November of 1916. The British engaged in the battle to pull away and weaken the German force in Verdun—another French city under attack by the Germans.
Appearance in the rap battle
Both J. R. R. Tolkien and George R. R. Martin appeared here during their second verses. In his second verse, Martin dropped a twig, which transformed into a branch hanging over a trench in the Somme. Tolkien, wearing military gear, ducked under the tree and proceeded to rap.
