Watch a rap rendition of 12 classic shows performed in one take

Rebecca Fontana

If you didn’t know you needed to see a rap battle version of The Breakfast Club, now you know. This new video features rap renditions of 12 classic shows, from Mean Girls to Good Will Hunting, performed by 12 people. Oh, and they do it all in one shot.

It was co-created by Hamilton star Daveed Diggs, who had one of our favorite breakout performances on Broadway and is the reason we now have a crush on Thomas Jefferson. He stars as Hobbes in the Calvin and Hobbes intro to the video alongside fellow creator Rafael Casal, and it's just the thing to watch if you’ve already memorized Lin-Manuel Miranda and James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke rap battle.

The video is the result of the first six sessions of the duo's new #BARS workshop series in NYC, which helps writers, rappers, actors and complete newbies turn into the greatest NYC hip-hop artists (maybe). The second session of their series is already sold out, but you can still join the waiting list on their site.
