Look, if you don't like rap, sure, you might not like this... but man, you'll be missing out. Also, we're looking into a system for highlighting mixes with "explicit" lyrics, but until it's in effect, it's worth noting that the F-bomb's dropped more than a couple times here. Again, if that offends your sensibilities, steer clear, but it's your loss in my opinion, as this is one of the most innovative, schizoid, and creative Earthbound mixes, rap mixes, or just plain mixes period you're gonna hear in '05. D-Lux, Flik, Joe Cam, and Mythril Nazgul pass the mic on a truly crazy set of virtuoso rhymes on top of Mr. Nazgul's best arrangement yet, a classic take on Scaraba. I was privy to several WIPs of this mix, but tonight was my first time hearing the very final version, and it lives up to the copious promise of its forebears. Another track from the Bound Together Earthbound project, in my mind this track gains instant status alongside other fine mixes that have proven that rap/hip-hop can work just as well as any other genre for game mixes. I remember insisting that Navid keep the quadruplets, which I feel really define the source material, and I'm glad he's done that, turning them into a musical chorus that favors scratching and all manner of fx to rapping and offering a natural transition point between segments. The rapping is too varied and elaborate to really cover on any sort of play-by-play basis, but with Myth's bird-flu and old-skool Star Trek referencing, a gangsta-grrl cameo from pixietricks, Flik's beautifully maniacal rant-rapping circa 3'13" (omfg shamisen-intro'd!!), and the strong over-arching leitmotif of ass being kicked, there should be no doubts there. Layered drums, quirky run-down-demented-circus melody, obese bass, balanced production, and lots of attention paid to doubling, panning, call-and-answer, and other tricks to enhance the vocals. Great work from all involved - not something I would have expected was possible or probable, and serves as an excellent compliment to Shadow's instrumental, guitar-driven take on the theme from back in 2003. I've seen some folk saying that rap/hip-hop doesn't jive with the Earthbound universe, that it's either anachronistic or simply inappropriate, but based on this mix, I couldn't disagree more; to me, this collaboration embraces the same eccentricity, instability, and freedom that the game itself and certainly Keiichi Suzuki's score do. Excellent.

Swing, batta batta, take a bat to the face
Motha fucka, ya sucka, I'll beat ya like no other
From Onett to Threed, doin' what I need
To save the day and keep Giygas at bay
Skip Sandwich Deluxe, speed up my feet
Get through Scaraba before I die of heat
To a dungeon man, the brick road Mazedude
Happy Happy Town (Mustin: "What the fuck?") It's all blue
Summers and Winters, Twoson and Fourside
Chill with Andonuts or the Runaway Five
I've got my posse in tow, Paula, Jeff, and Poo
Pokey watch out 'cause we're comin for you
So grab your yo-yo and gun, we'll have a little fun
Bottle rocket in your face, yea, you know I fuckin' won
Throw him to the curb, stomp that little bitch's face
Make the fat piggy cry, yea, I put him in his place
So I'll save the day, and the world from devastation
United for peace across the EarthBound nation
So back up, and shut up, and bow at our feet
Ness is takin' care of business 'cause I'm fuckin' leet
(pixietricks: "How you livin', big Myth?")
I'm having trouble with my Tribbles
Shit smells so foul you could call it double dribble
In fact, make it a triple. Got beef? We call it mutton
Moving through the vents, a-three 'n Charley Dutton
I'm a strapp'd bomb, verbal blitz, vocation
I am patient with my rhyme, scope snipes like agents
A rap vacation, a rhyme culmination
Putting words on the page like bird flu to Asians
Hit hard like crack rock, they call me the shock doc
I'm stocking like pet shops, on one of them red jobs
Sign Poland to Papa, smuggle like bed frames
Two pounds of cole slaw, delivered in red veins
They call me Hank on the root, big man on a mission,
Can't fuck with the truth, like balm on ya fission
Go two rounds get splashed on ya dome like baseballs
An' facefalls to the ground, corned like Maize walls
Now they can't stop us 'cause we moving too fast
'Nuff sand in the eyes, turn the desert to glass
Hit 'em, [BOW], it's a nuclear bomb detected
Infected, with the rhyme meat, rejected
Your fourth and final ally, master of the PSI,
Pokey's causin' trouble and now he's gonna die
I come from Dalam, where the samurai hail
I've gotta make my master proud, and prove that I won't fail
These demons are attacking cause I'm no defensive dude
HP's rollin' down to zero .. but wait I got the food
Health's back again, Prince is back on top
OMG, critical SMASH, baddies just got rocked
That hippie's got a toothbrush and a tube of Colgate
He'll blind you with those whites, Ness, you better look away
I'll slice 'n dice with my Sword of Kings, till the fat lady sings
Starstorm in yo' face ("Woah, where'd you get that?") Mu Training
Runnin' through the cities with people talkin' witty,
From the Dunes that are Dusty down to ol' Saturn Valley
Pickin' up presents and stealin' monsters money
That's how I gotta roll if I wanna keep my honeys
Yeah, that's all you get. Fuck you.
Whoa, hey, EarthBound, WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS?!
Apparently it's a three dimensional plastic case with a modern
day circuit board mounted inside, with the sole intensive purpose of entertaining a modern day audience of years ago but not limited to today.
Duhh, but I've never played this game! Sounds lame, but it's true. And this unfortunate lack of game playing I can not undo.
The cartridge is downstairs you dumb fuck, go play it I say!
I don't want to, mommy, games make my wee wee tingle, OK?
Curiosity killed the cat, and cats are fat. So I measured the dimensions of the cartridge itself and have come to this stunning conclusion:
Five point five, by three point five, by one point something, but that something means nothing.
A chemical analysis proves nothing of hypothesis of which I thought up in the shower while I read Nintendo Power.
So I lied. But the fact remains that this game is made of grey plastic.
...OR SO I THINK.
