This rap and subsequent video could be the coolest, most dope tune about gaming I’ve ever seen. First off, I’m a sucker for British rap. There’s just something about their beats and accent that make it stand out to me. When I first played this video my mind immediately went to The Streets, which is my favorite British rap music of all-time.
Check him out if you’ve never heard it before. You’ll love it. There’s just something catchy to the way the Brits rhyme versus our bling-bling, get yo money, ho-banging shit we have over here. I’m a rap fan, but some of the newer crap that is out these days is all autotuned-out and only focuses on getting money and other dumb shit like going to the club. Give me a rap that tells a story, or infuses hate in my heart like Eminem, Jay-Z, Wu-Tang, or Biggie.
Anyway, back to this awesome gaming history rap song. For any gamer that has been around for awhile this video will speak to you. He really does a superb job of breaking gaming down lyrically, and mixing in some great gaming footage from the last 20 years. You have to love the finale with a burning Xbox 360. Oy, Oy, you’ve been served geezer style mate…
