Love this song.  The rap and spoken parts are a callback (to me, anyway; not sure if anyone else feels the same) to the style of a lot of Dale North & Mustin remixes from the early to mid 2000s (both on OCR and outside releases like More Than Mario).

 

Phenomenal work!

Great jazz, cool rapping. I like how the chord change / dissonance thing at 1:03 etc has a huge, huge pull begging towards resolving. I think the harmony is a bit different from the source? In a way that emphasizes the pull even more. I don't think there's really a conflict between rapping and jazz here, but it's more of a case of having a long stretch of instrumental sections and then just a couple of verses at the end (not the only OCR with vocals that does this). The spoken word bit at the beginning helps a bit by foreshadowing it, but I still feel the balance is off structurally. Regardless, a mighty fine arrangement of the source, it's genuinely funny (I find the mild crassness amusing for the source material too) and arrangement fits the music and the game very well.

One of my favorites on the album for sure.  Great jazzy/hip-hop vibe that would be at home in a not-so-serious anime spinoff of our beloved franchise.  The lyrics brilliantly straddle the line between witty and immature.  Love it!
