Update: The two sides have agreed to a ceasefire, and the battle is over... for now. Did one participant come out on top? Scroll down to the bottom and let us know what you think.

Some beautiful happenings occur on Twitter with all the surprise and spontaneity of a summer thunderstorm, but fortunately tweets tend to stay around long enough for us to appreciate them after the fact. In this case, the event is still going on. Skin manufacturer dbrand's Twitter account is currently engaged in an epic rap battle with AMD's. We think there is a clear winner here, and no, our bias isn't colored by our appreciation for dbrand's skins. See for yourself.

Here is where AMD jumps in.

The battle has already left behind burn marks and backhand imprints, but it may not be over yet. Pick your sides and hit up the accounts below to see where things go from here. Perhaps afterwards we can look back on this as one of the epic rap battles of history.

Update: The saga continues.

And then, a call for peace.

Throughout the fierce battle, more than a few spectators jumped in with commentary. Here's one for the road.

    okay, one question - why the fuck did this need an article on AP?

    • Nathaniel_G

      Better question, why the fuck does it matter to you?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        Rap Battle coming soon?

        • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

          Don't even hope for something like that
          My rhyming just sucks, and that is a fact
          I bet @archon810:disqus can kick my ass
          And Android Police isn't Twitter, let's keep it just as

        • David Thoren

          DBrand featured some android devices and mentioned in their rap!


          Yet, I think you just answered, which means you're reading. That or you were just slamming your head on the keyboard, I can't really tell by your use tiny, illegitimate vocabulary.

          • Brad

            I fucking love that nobody on this site can pick up on sarcasm when it's laid on as thick as humanly possible.

        • A/V Guy

          Damnit would you guys stop dropping the mic! I barely got it working again last time. Either increase the A/V budget or learn to hold it!

          • sssgadget

            lol :D

      • PhilNelwyn

        Why did you say so?

      • abobobilly

        Better answer would've been ... "... because SCREW YOU, Thats why".

        Not that it means any offense -.-

    dbrand vs AMD Radeon

    • Mooster Pennybags

      AMD's rap performance is about as good as its three-core CPU performance. Needless to say, it wasn't very good.

    • DirkBelig


  • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

    Ah yes, sharing pictures of exotic cars on social media, the universal marker of coolness.

    • http://blake.pm Blake Mitchell

      You obviously did not see their batman skin

  • Ryan Callihan

    I lost it at "y'aint got it" hahaha

    • S_Dot

      I lost it on swer on me mum.

  • Cody Revels

    This is hilarious but I dont get it...these companies arent even in competition with each other.

    • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

      because... REASONS!

    • Marcell Lévai

      Free advertising for both?

      • Andrew

        Nothing is free.

    • Neil

      dbrand said no business can rhyme like them. AMD challenged that.

    • Ray

      But isn't that what makes it great? Two companies just having a bit of fun. Doesn't matter if they are in competition with each other or not.

      Not to mention they are attracting a lot of publicity from it.

  • veRdiKt

    First of all just because you rhyme doesnt mean your rapping....

    • Brad


      • DirkBelig

        That's racist!

    • Ray

      Always got to be one troll.

  • Blue Sun

    I can never get enough of the original gif that is pictured next to the article title.

  • Michael

    Radeon's raps were better.

  • jcopernicus

    dbrand rocking a roses are red violets are blue third grade rhyme style.


  • RickMartensen


    • Camiel Hirschberg


    • Fatal1ty_93_RUS
  • Bob G


    More rhyming than rap.

  • S_Dot

    "You're trying your best, but still getting played.
    Blown up by dbrand:
    the pin-less grenade."

    That was ill. I approve.

    • Really good rapper in da hood

    But they're not rappers.

  • cy_n_ic

    Human resources smote me for a twitter rap.
    Thats when i quit, im sick of this crap.
    They didnt appreciate my sick ass flow.
    So i told them where they could go.

  • Zombie

    Where's the APK download?

  • BigDropz

    Official Vote: @dbrandSkins or @AMDRadeon ???

    • BigDropz

      Definitely @dbrandSkins...👏👏🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠

  • Sewer Rats

    dbrand's skins are nice, but their rhymes are better
    Radeon's outa place like tangerines and feta
    The "pin-less grenade" rocked, took us back
    To when Core Duo2 robbed them of all their stack
    Now AMD tries... to come back with some rhymes..
    But as time flies... its all silly product lines...
    DBrand goes in for the kill, blade high, neck exposed
    AMD once again, about to get disposed
    DBrand throws in the towel, offers peace and a lollipop
    Rhyming about a rhyme battle, I really should stop...

  • fonix232

    I don't like rap, but I believe dbrand won, hands down. AMD at least could've tried formatting their answers a bit...

  • Dutchy

    did Radeon even rhyme? :/
