How Does Bangor’s Stephen King Stack Up Against Poe in Epic Rap Battle? [VIDEO]

Bangor’s own Stephen King (well, a nerded out younger impersonator) took on Edgar Allan Poe (a live version) in the latest Epic Rap Battle.

In the battle, Poe hit King with some early zingers including, “Your books are as eerie as Beverly Cleary,” (whose books are geared toward tween girls and are not in the least bit scary.)

But King wasn’t taking any disrespect from the melancholy poet, who created some of history’s creepiest works including “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Black Cat” and “The Pit and the Pendulum.”

“Fame. Money. Talent. Success. You’ll always have less. Never more,” King raps, alluding to the refrain in Poe’s epic poem “The Raven.”

For his part, the real Stephen King, whose “Mr. Mercedes” just hit stores, recently tweeted that he believed he didn’t fare so well against the Poe.

What do you think? Who won this rap battle?
