AMD Radeon leaped into an epic rap battle on Twitter and it was amazing

Usually, Twitter fights are prime examples of peak stupid—two or more stubborn sides spouting angry 140-character bursts so short that they'd never truly be capable of conveying nuanced arguments. But on Thursday, that oh-so-short character count turned one Twitter fight into the war of the week, when AMD's Radeon Graphics account took on premium device skin maker dbrand in an impromptu epic rap battle.

As Android Police points out, it all started innocently enough, when the dbrand Twitter account started rapping about high-end Lamborghinis over the past week, comparing them to company's vinyl device skins.

But on Thursday, dbrand's rapping transitioned to boasting.

Them's fighting words. AMD Radeon stepped up and started spitting rhymes Eminem-style. Dbrand, like any true mic warrior, accepted the challenge.

Ooooh, that's cold. After that fierce blow, dbrand calls truce—presumably to show mercy on AMD, which put up a solid effort but clearly got burned by the vinyl skin maker, which held onto its self-claimed crown as the best-rapping business on Twitter, if you ask me. (Sorry, AMD and Robert Hallock, but it has to be said.)

Request: Can IBM step up to the Tweet mic next? I want to see if Watson's hip-hop skills are as advanced as its Jeopardy chops.
