aw yeah mans I hella fucks with the rap shit. I’ve actually been wanting to make a thread on this forum about some clever gaming references I hear in rap lyrics lol. Here are some of the good ones I can think of off the top of my head.
I wont spam this post with youtube links tho, look em up. If you like rap then I promise you all these songs are good :)
Mr MFN eXquire off Meyhem Lauren & DJ Muggs - Aquatic Violence
"F–k ni–as, no batty man
Bustin out the X6 like a Megaman"
Add-2 - Soul Searching
"This is God’s plan, all in God’s hand, I make the sky land
My lady laid up looking like Sagat’s stage in Thailand"
Tiye Phoenix off Polyrhythm Addicts - Revamp
"But my flow, Stevie Wonderful, can’t see these sketches
Drop a verse like pieces in Tetris when I spit these geometrics"
Freestyle (from the Arsonists) - Can I Get a Yes?
"Struggling brothers got me for my car stereo
Going through hell, dodging shells like Super Mario"
Noveliss off Clear Soul Forces - Ninja Rap
"The martial artist of vocal arson holding the mic too
Despise you, Strider Hiryu with the haiku"
speaking of, Clear Soul Forces is easily one of my favorite groups and an absolute shame they never got too popular when they were at a skill level way above pretty much everyone else. Ultimately they decided to stop making records together coz they never had success after 10 years as a group. Shame their final record came out just as Covid lockdowns hit too, so they werent even able to perform it and give themselves a proper sendoff.
Noveliss has a reputation for being a super nerd, and while Ilajide has a lot of gaming references in his lyrics too, Noveliss is considered the king of that stuff. Dude has an entire verse making Fatal Fury and Soul Calibur references on this song lol:
Terry Bogard pull your flow card and drop a Busta Wolf without a memory card
