VIDEO: Mikhail Prokhorov Raps, Dubs Himself 'Russian Eminem'

This is probably the greatest thing you'll see today, tomorrow and, perhaps, ever. For whatever reason, Mikhail Prokhorov joined in on a rap sesh a couple weeks ago on Russian television at the urging of the show's hosts. Jay-Z was featured heavily in the rhyme, and Prokhorov dubs himself the Russian Eminem.

Whatever, you're going to hit the jump to watch no matter what.

And the lyrics:

1-2, 1-2 (Yo, yo, yo my b(?))
1-2, 1-2, check this out (Yo, yo, yo my b(?))
Yo Jay-Z this rap is for you
Mr. Jay-Z this is the first presentation
Of real rap music from Russian Federation
Mr. Jay-Z I am not alone
Mikhail Prokhorov on the microphone
His name is Mikhail, he's Russian businessman
I am real Russian Eminem
Mr. Jay-Z this is my friends
They got many dollars and Mercedes-Benz
We are superstar on TV in Russia
(Prokhorov says something in Russian)
We don't speak English, we use iPad
Because our English is very bad
This is the tea, this is our table
This is our first channel label
This is the show projector Paris Hilton
London is the capital of Great Britain
(Couple bars in Russian, only Jay-Z stands out)
We don't speak English, but we are not bad
Mikhail Prokhorov and my band

This is the best thing in the history of best things.
