Appearance in the rap battle

Bob Ross vs Pablo Picasso:

This was the location where Bob Ross rapped before he painted himself into the painting during his first verse, similar to the opening segments in the real show. He then spent the rest of the battle in the painting.

Nice Peter vs EpicLLOYD 2:

Nice Peter rapped in the painting during the line "You’re an eight-year-old boy stuck inside a whatever-year-old man!"


  • It was shown that Ross was still on The Joy of Painting, but had been painted into the painting itself during Pablo Picasso's second verse.
  • The Joy of Painting can be found on Channel 37 on Picasso's television set, which corresponds to the number of the battle.
