At one point, I considered doing an academic paper on Beowulf as the proto-rapper. Never got around to it , but these students took it a step further, pitting Grendel’s slayer against Sir Gawain in this epic rap battle.

And if you’re looking for a “rap” version of Beowulf , make sure to check out Maria Dahvana Headley’s translation. It’s phenomenal.
