Hate ’em or love ’em, but Key & Peele are the heirs of Dave Chappelle’s legacy on Comedy Central. To quote Day & A Dream’s own EIC, it’s hard for many to decide whether they’re funny or funnyHowever, when they’re on, they’re on, and their comedic commentaries on race especially are always entertaining.

But the comedic duo were selected as the next participants in Nice Peter and Epic Lloyd’s “Epic Rap Battles of History” youtube series, which pits recreations of famous people and pop culture icons dropping bars in a battle rap effort. Key & Peele just so happened to get picked to recreate a rap battle between Mohandas Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

What follows is a side-splitting exchange that clocks in at just under two minutes, with the comedians doing their best to channel an Indian/South Asian and a Alabaman accent, respectively, and producing some pretty clever and quotable lines in the process.

Let us know who you think took the battle in the comments section. Personally, even though Gandhi’s line “I am celibate because/ I don’t give a f*ck” was genius, please believe that on this last week of Black History Month, Michael-turned-Martin Luther King, Jr. brought that hot fire. Dylan who??
