Information on the rapper

Stephen William Hawking was born on January 8th, 1942, in Oxford, England. He was a British physicist whose work had earned him many honors. Such work included collaborating on the Penrose–Hawking singularity theorem and the prediction that black holes produce radiation. Hawking was known for his long-term struggle with ALS, a disease that impairs motor skills, causing him to become paralyzed and use a speech-generating device. Hawking passed away on March 14th, 2018, at the age of 76, presumably due to complications of his disease.


'Sup? I'm a theoretical physicist and cosmologist, like my man Carl Sagan. I'm also from England, but you can probably tell that from my accent. Psych! You've been Hawking burned! I'm in this chair because I've got the worst case of Lou Gehrig's disease anyone's ever seen. But I'm better than the most because most with this disease do not live past 40! And I'm 70! Hell yeah. I also have to use this computer to talk because I got pneumonia while visiting the Cern Hadron Collider. They had to perform an emergency tracheotomy and boom! Now I sound like a Speak and Spell. But it's cool, it doesn't slow me down, I've been married twice! I'm also CRAZY smart. I'm trying to find the answer to the "Theory of Everything" which includes deciphering a P-Brane, a spatially extended mathematical concept in String Theory. See, I told you I was fuckin' smart. I also wrote a huge best seller called "A Brief History of Time," that tries to explain the Big Bang, black holes and light cones to idiots like you. Good luck!

Appearance in the battle (cameo)

Mr. T vs Mr. Rogers:

Stephen Hawking appeared throughout Mister Rogers' verses in a picture on his wall.

Nice Peter vs EpicLLOYD:

Hawking was one of the many cameos of past Season 1 rappers to appear during Nice Peter's verses. He appeared when Peter said during the line, "Look at you!", and appeared again when he said, "It's like I'm battle rapping a fat version of Gollum!"

Hitler vs Vader 2:

Hawking's silhouette was visible at the beginning of the video, but he did not appear until the end when he rolled out of the shadows. He then replied to Adolf Hitler with: "Because you're standing over the Rancor Pit."

Hitler vs Vader 3:

Hawking was seen by Darth Vader's side on his ship, where he mirrored the role of R2-D2 in the Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi scene. He then passed the mic to Hitler, which led to Hitler starting the battle.

Bob Ross vs Pablo Picasso:

Hawking appeared once again in the background of Mister Rogers' channel (13) on Pablo Picasso's television.


Verse 1:

You've got no idea what you're messin' with here, boy!

I got 12-inch rims on my chair. That's how I roll, y'all!

You look like someone glued a mustache on a troll doll!

I'll be stretching out the rhyme, like gravity stretches time,

When you try to put your little p-brane against this kind of mind!

I’m the best! I'm the Snoop Dogg of science!

I'll be dropping mad apples on your head from the shoulders of giants!

Verse 2:

There are ten million, million, million, million, million, million, million, million, million particles in the universe that we can observe.

Your mama took the ugly ones and put them into one nerd.

You wanna bring the heat with the mushroom clouds you're making?

I'm about to bake raps from scratch like Carl Sagan!

And while it's true that my work is based on you,

I'm a super computer. You’re like a TI-82! (Ooh!)
