BBC Is Using Hip-Hop To Teach Viewers About World War 1

In an attempt to attract a younger audience to world history, Origins of BBC staged a World War 1 (WW1) battle where all key note figures in the battle spit verses to each other explaining their role and actions in the epic war. This unique take on rap features King George V of Great Britain, Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany and Emperor Franz Josef of Austro-Hungary.
