Rap Round Table: Who Is the Greatest Movie Villain of All Time?

Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. Each week, Rocks Off will have some of them here discussing issues relevant to their culture.

This Week's Panel: E.S.G., Marcus Manchild, Renzo, Kyle Hubbard, Purple Bastard, Preemo, Mic Skills, Mac, more.

Not Invited: Michael Myers, because fuck that guy.

This Week's Prompt: They were showing Full Metal Jacket on TV recently, which is just about the best. The question, then: Who is the greatest movie bad guy of all-time? Go.

Renzo: Damn, that's a great question. I'm going with Denmoteb [Imhotep], or however you spell that shit, from The Mummy. He didn't talk. He just showed up and started fuckin up EVERYTHING.

Remember when he turned into the sand and "ate" them? Yes, you do. Who's fuckin' with that? Surely not Darth Vador OR Candyman. They are unable to fuck with him. Runner-up: I'm goin with Texas Chainsaw Massacre dude. Heart of darkness.

Purple Bastard: Either Rutger Hauer from Blade Runner or Daniel-Day Lewis from There Will Be Blood. Both were vicious and complex.
