GRR is to JRR what Orcs are to Elves. Just poorly twisted corrupted copy of a beautiful original.

Bad guys die and good guys survive? Parody Martin hasn't read The Silmarillion yet.

Tolkien for sure, he was the original fantasy writer and I feel like Martin only is a successful story writer because of shock value

I know that everyone talks about how Tolkien’s languages and world building trump Martin, but even leaving that all aside, Tolkien won this the moment he said, “ I cut my teeth in the trenches of the Somme. You LARPed your Santa Claus ass through Vietnam!”

Tolkien won easily, but Martin had a really good verse up to the perverted bits. From there, his rapping all went downhill.

Not a good representation of GRRM. We should had waited years for his next verse to come out.

Say whatever you liked about LOTR and GoT, but you can't deny something: One of them ended satisfactory. The other didn't.

I thought Martin was winning especially after his last verse, but then I heard Tolkien’s last verse. damn

Martin never stood a chance for he's a steward of the throne at the most, only another literary King could truly give battle to Tolkien like Robert Heinlein or Terry Pratchett

1:44 "Even the names of you characters suck" Bold words coming from a man that named at least 3 of his characters as a reference for 2 of Tolkiens names Khal Drogo and Drogon, clearly inspired by Drogo Baggins (Page 22 FOTR) And Samwell Tarly, better known as Sam (the sidekick of the "main" hero aka Jon Sow), clearly inspired in Samwise Gamgee, better known as Sam (the sidekick of the "main" hero aka Frodo Baggins)

LOTR is timeless. In 50 years it will still be revered while GOT will be seen as a farcical whim of its time.

Martin's 1st verse was excellent, and the 2nd and 3rd verses weren't bad either and Tolkien still destroyed him! Do NOT challenge the OG!

There are some people who think that Tolkien should be canonized as a saint by the Catholic Church. As a protestant individual, all I can say is, that it would make this rap battle a bit more awesome. The man who's books got a TV show with a vomit worthy ending, vs a literal freaking saint, who wrote books that got at least 11 movies over the years.
