This is Eminem’s “Rap God” constructed out of samples from the DK Rap. It also repurposes several songs from the Donkey Kong 64 soundtrack. Remarkable, futuristic.
Hoo boy. The song ushering in the end of reality.
Great to pair with the below vid. This looks stellar and was probably so easy to make. One warehouse, five dancers, three sets, six cars, CGI, done. We’re lucky to live in an era where the basic music videos are still stunning to watch. Song’s hyphy too.
I saw this video when it first came out, but I’m not sure why I didn’t lock into my brain at the time. This homage to HelixSnake’s legendary Skate videos is an ironclad example of music video pacing. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a million times: start with a concept and narrative, expanding both until an overwhelming climax– turn the knob from 1 to 10… And then jump it to 20 in the last half-minute.
Jump it like a skateboard jumping the city.
Sent this to most of my friends so now it’s time to send it to the internet.
Modern Day LA Legend
I know both of these songs, and they’re both from 10-15 years ago, and maybe I’d have occasion to listen to them ever again but I’m not certain!
Well, I started writing a post about how “the madman is dumping a new gaming-parody mashup every two hours for more than two months” but I now see that SilvaGunner is a collaborative project with its own wiki so I’ma step over that rabbit hole and laugh at the silly tunes.
