'Epic Rap Battles of History' creators met in Chicago
As two of YouTube's most successful rappers--their "Epic Rap Battles of History" channel has more than 1.2 billion total video views and almost 5.4 million subscribers--Nice Peter and EpicLLOYD (Peter Shukoff and Lloyd Ahlquist to the historical record) met while freestyle rapping. Except it wasn't at some park bench or open mic event; it was during a party at Ahlquist's house in Chicago, where both had moved to pursue improv comedy.
