|"Rap It Up"|
|Season 3, Episode 9|
|Premiere date:|| November 21, 2011 (USA)
August 1, 2012 (UK)
|Directed by:||Mike Roth|
Pops faces off against a group of rappers, called "CrewCrew" in a rap battle, but instead of creating "hurtful" raps, he decides to rebut by using poetry.
Mordecai and Rigby are watching CrewCrew, a famed group of rappers, engage in rapping battles at the Park's Snack Bar. All is well until Pops shows up, mistaking CrewCrew's rapping for poetry, and shares a bit of his own. CrewCrew calls Pops a loser for that, making Pops mad and challenging them to a rap battle. Mordecai and Rigby join Pops, knowing he would lose if he doesn't know how to rap.
At the house, the three try practicing how to rap, but Pops ends up quitting due to the rude nature of it. He also quits because Rigby showed him what rap is about. Everything goes downhill from there, starting with Pops buying green poetry suits. Mordecai and Rigby call the suits embarrassing and say they are not going. However, with a little bit of sage advice from Skips, the duo go to the rap battle to support Pops.
Pops is losing the battle. But once Mordecai and Rigby they get there, Pops gains more courage and starts reciting poetry in an epic way. Demel-Ishun starts rapping and making fun of Rigby. Rigby beats her by reciting poetry and saying the word "show" which lands on her and crushes her. Blitz Comet and Alpha-Dog run out of the way just in time. Then Blitz Comebacks to make fun of Mordecai, but Mordecai recites poetry which makes him grow wings and fly off. Finally, Alpha-Dog raps to make fun of Pops but ends up exploding. By donning Shakespearean-era clothing, the three defeat CrewCrew with poetry. Just when they thought they wouldn't be called losers, Muscle Man mocks their choice of clothing, calling them losers.
