One highlight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week was Black Thought kicking some dope rhymes over the Super Mario Bros. theme song. Love the flow over this, just wish it could be longer. So what other video game music should get a hip hop twist to it?
One off the top is an old *Tibs Fav. from S-Preme. He killed a Mortal Kombat-sampled, Charles Hamilton production called "Test Your Might" in 2009. Enjoy this bonus track below.
Over 3 million views and rising, this new viral video comes courtesy of the Ohio St. Marching Band's halftime show this past weekend. How can a marching band garner 3 million views, you ask? Because they amazingly portrayed their love of video games through a series of formations, and of course the theme music, that illustrated such classics as Super Mario Bros, Zelda, Pacman, and Halo. In fact, they even reenact some of those games' iconic moments.
I'm sure a lot of you will enjoy this one and before you know it, 9 minutes will have gone by and it would have felt like 2. My favorite part has to be the still that may have reeled in your click (the horse, wait til you see what they did there). And the ending does the whole performance just. Can't help but appreciate the choreography and intricies that must've taken a collective focus and much time to prepare for. Even if you're a Michigan fan, I think you'll enjoy this video above, hah!
