I’m about to end this man’s whole career is a famous quote from the 2011 YouTube sensation The Rap Battle (Parody).
A screenshot from the video started circulating on the web, along with the titular quote, as an image macro, referring to scenarios in which one’s reputation is at stake.
The original video, which has been sadly removed and replaced with a popular reupload was uploaded to YouTube on May 25th, 2011 by MrDeshawnRaw.
The skit is a parody on the competitive and confrontational nature of rap battles.
In one of the scenes, Deshawn, also known as Supa Hot Fire drops the line “I’m about to end this man’s whole career”.
The meme appeared rarely prior to 2019, however on February 22nd, 2019, it was posted to the r/dankmemes subreddit by MileHighMiracle, which led to the spread of the format.
It later appeared on several sites, from Instagram to Facebook and Twitter.
