VGM Hip-Hop Beats


Recommended Posts

figured it'd be alright posting this here after not finding any threads on hip-hop after searching.

i came by this track the a few days ago by way of a friend, and its been in my head quite a bit since then. the source tune is from Chrono Trigger; id name it, but you'll know as soon as the track starts. i can't say too much for the lyrical content in this particular song, but the track was produced by a guy named brandun deshay, who seems to be known for his chip-tune/VGM inspired tracks.

anyway check it out; i figured folks here would appreciate it to some degree: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw68hYsSIIE

brandun deshay: http://brandundeshay.com/ he's got all his works posted for free DL if you're interested. you can also punch his name into youtube and find a ton of his tracks.

EDIT: felt like i had posted this in the wrong place, sorry bout that; thanks for moving it.

that nas/bomberman 64 mashup was impressive; didn't think it would fit all that well. looking forward to listening to more of these. and I've really enjoyed most of everything people have been posting here, particularly tonedeff who i was unaware of until now (still got 'move in, ride out' in my head). anyway, great posts so far -- please post more as things come your way.

Maja - Great rapper from Phoenix, focuses on anime and video games.


Random - A lot of video game stuff, he just did a whole album based on FF7 rap.


Godric Johnson - more video game themed rap.


Team Teamwork - They mix rap music with video game beats, unlike the previous guys who actually make their own rap on top of video game beats or original beats.


Safetywords - More video game themed hip hop.


http://www.mediafire.com/?6ac4o4zfofvsfx9 - 8 bit mixed with Wu Tang music.

Turbo - Has a number of Street Fighter based songs, other stuff is kinda random, all of it pretty good IMO, seeing as has made most of his music under the age of 21.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1-XI8tzx5I I was never sure where this sample came from... But it might be Final Fantasy? *shrug* XV is pretty dope, by the way. I'd definitely suggest checking out the Please, Hold mixtape.

ah this is the dude that did black & yellow; don't really know him for much else than that (and the remix purp & yellow which is great, go lakers :D). good stuff, i'll have to look into him a bit more.

I suggest checking out the mixtape "How Fly" by Curren$y & Wiz Khalifa. It's a great collaborative effort and perhaps one of the best mixtapes of 2009 (at least, one of my favorites). I didn't love it the first time I listened, but upon second rotation I was just kinda like "this is chiiiillllll".
