Rap Battle!!!

The Benthic Rap Battle is here!!!

Produced from scratch - music, lyrics, costumes, videography, etc - we created this project as an education and outreach tool for the topic of water quality. Follow Caddisfly and Dobsonfly on their whimsical adventure through the conveyance of hip-hop.

YouTube thumbs and comments appreciated!

Based on Nice Peter's Epic Rap Battles of History, SWRHHCoWQ pairs together two water quality related characters in a battle of wits. This episode focuses on two water quality indicator species of benthic macroinvertebrates - the Caddisfly (a Jewel-esque earth warrior) and the Dob$onfly (the devil may care Ke$ha party girl).

This project was put together as a water quality education and outreach project helmed by the AmeriCorps member of the Town of Farragut, TN Stormwater Matters program in conjuction with AmeriCorps members from Knox County Air Quality and Tennessee Yards & Neighborhoods.
