For the past few months, Marvel Comics has been covering some of its comics in images that reference album art from old- and new-school hip-hop classics. This week, you can get a bunch of those variant covers for free.
There are certain times where the less is said about something, the better. This Sonic the Hedgehog themed rap is one of those times.
Boy howdy, the ability to take selfies in Wind Waker HD is the gift that keeps on giving, isn't it?
I never thought I'd hear a track about Animal Crossing that riffs off Drake's "Started From The Bottom," and yet here we are. This amazing, amazing thing exists. I had no idea that the main New Leaf theme worked so well for rapping!
This is "Trigger Finger" from Lil Wayne's newest album I Am Not a Human Being II, released Tuesday. But
Mass Effect Assassin's Creed fans should recognize that opening sample, before it lights up a bowl and rolls into the filth-flarn-filth lyrics (so, yes, NSFW warning if you're listening around others over speakers.)
At first, the vibe of SG Grey Days' retro-RPG-styled video didn't grab me. An overworld that looked like something out of a Genesis-era game? Yawn. But when the random encounter battle with a Wild Hater got underway, I couldn't stop laughing.
Rappers love Pac-Man. I mean, everyone loves Pac-Man. But this list at Spin's website—which catalogs 50 rap songs that have sampled game music for their beats—testifies to the abiding love affair MCs have for the hungry video game icon. There have been a lot of Super Mario samples and some genuine surprises—who…
This music video by Chicago-based rapper Kid Static was at this year's WonderCon and it nicely captures the fun to be had when nerds gather. Kid's rhymes ain't half bad, either.
One of Bastion's defining aspects is its music. A combination of digging folk guitar and trippy beats, Darren Korb's soundtrack was one of the very best of 2011.
Some of the most well-known and successful rappers in hip hop right now aren't the typical ‘thug' act. These rappers—such as Lupe Fiasco, Childish Gambino and Frank Ocean—don't just rap about money and fame.
Step aside, "Paragon | Renegade" by Adam WarRock. There's a new Mass Effect rap opus in town.* The Mass Effect Epic Rap—by Dan Bull, who we've featured around these parts before—offers up a clever rhyming synopsis of the events of the first two games in BioWare's hit series. I think my favorite line might be…
Yelawolf, an Alabama rapper signed to Eminem's Shady Records, loves muscle cars. So he must be pretty excited to drive around a real life model of Driver San Francisco's yellow and black Dodge Challenger.
Jim Guthrie, who provided the original soundtrack for the iOS hit Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, seems to think maybe so. Yesterday he noticed this post by Hip Hop is Read, which compares "The Cloud" from the game's soundtrack with Lil Wayne and Drake's "She Will," due out Aug. 29. Judge for yourself, but the…
There's a lot to choose from, I know, but this - called simply "The Video Game Song" - is probably my all-time favourite...video game song.
The news this morning that Konami will publish Def Jam Rapstar raises hope among the hip-hop-minded among us that maybe, finally, the world will get its first — or second, you may argue — great rap game.
Though Super Mario coin boxes do make that sound, A.B. Frazier at The Koalition reminds us that hip-hop retired that term. But hip-hop producer Pharrell is very much active with this Super Mario jewelry.
I'm not generally one for rap music alone, but combine it with just about every other genre and I'm sold, and that includes chiptune. This video for "Follow Me" by Pato Pooh ft. Adam Tensta captures the spirit of the awesome genre merger perfectly, with old-school 8-bit graphics given an amazing hip hop makeover.
