So, lately I've been fascinated with finding rap songs that incorporate video games in someway. Whether through samples or lyrical content, and these aren't just random fan made mash-ups either.
While not a standard long form blog entry, I thought I'd share some of my findings with you without going on the forums proper and hitting y'all upside the head with "Youtube Spam!!!"
So without further ado... Youtube Spam!!!
Vast Aire & Kenyattah Black rapping over the title music of Super Metroid.
Dom Kennedy rhyming over Chrono Trigger's Guardia Forest Theme.
Percee P & Diamond D (BRONX STAND UP!!!!... sorry bout that.) doing their thing over Contra's Title Theme.
BrandUn DeShay and Charles Hamilton rapping about 11/11 over Sonic 1+2's Level Complete theme. The ones before they went to shit. Don't lie to yourselves, y'all know it's true.
While not using a video game sample, XV rhymes over a beat that "Feels Soulful... but Powerful." Which invokes the song's title of Chaka Shao Khan. (Chaka Khan + Shao Kahn = Soulfully Powerful)
So yeah, crazy huh. There's a lot more out there, and hey feel free to add any of your finds below. I also might update this entry from time to time with new stuff as well.
