The past few days have been hugely important for the Drake fans among us. They’ve been even more hugely important for the Nintendo game-loving Drake fans among us.
This song is for anyone who has made a beeline for the video game section of their local retailer and cursed loudly at empty shelves.
Smosh's lewd and crude Smash Bros. rap has generated more than two million views since Friday's debut, with countless Villager-induced nightmares to come. I'm never getting this out of my psyche.
Earthbound might be old enough to warrant the moniker "cult classic" at this point, but Nintendo's beloved SNES-era RPG has still managed to win over new fans ever since it came to the Wii U last year. One such player fell in love with the game so wholly that he's now honored it with—what else?—a rap mashup tribute.
Drake and Lil Wayne came to Queens this week as part of a tour the rappers are co-headlining. It was the third such act to pass through the Tri-State area recently, the first two being Beyonce and Jay Z's "On The Run" and Eminem and Rhianna's "Monster" tour. But this one was special. It was modeled off Street Fighter.
Yes, somebody made a rap album entirely about loot-tacular shooter Borderlands. Surprisingly, it's not the worst thing ever. It's kinda good, actually. I know, right?
Rap nerds and video game nerds have a lot in common. So whenever the two overlap thanks to the magic of the internet, things get pretty weird pretty quickly.
Every Saturday, Scott Bradlee and his slow jam crew deliver a sexy slow jam version of a classic cartoon theme. This week they've completely outdone themselves.
Electrode, Diglett, Nidoran, Mankey, Venusaur, Rattata, Fearow, Pidgey, Seaking, Jolteon, Dragonite, Gastly, Ponyta, Vaporeon, Poliwrath, Butterfreeeeee! ...wait, there's more than just these Pokémon at the start of the Pokerap? No way.
Boy howdy, the ability to take selfies in Wind Waker HD is the gift that keeps on giving, isn't it?
There are many unlikely combinations in this world. Chicken and waffles. Sparkles and vampires. Also, this parody by Rawb09 of Coolio's song, Gangsta's Paradise and League of Legends.
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!
If you follow video games, you're probably aware of Dan Bull, the Brit rapper who drops sick rhymes about the hottest new video games. Or, you know, "sick," if you're not that into this sort of kitschy thing.
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…
Final Fantasy XIII-2 comes with a multi-chapter, fully voiced summary of the plot of its predecessor, which is extremely convenient for fans that decided to pass up XIII in favor of not getting involved in a giant argument. It does not feature pixel breakdancing or any sort of lyrical rampage. This one does.
However you define "Nerdcore," I'd say that once a guy is dropping rhymes about the ins and outs of Mass Effect, he probably qualifies. But let's not get caught up in labels—these tracks, which premiered over at Destructoid, are a goofy good time.
