Weirdness: This Animal Crossing Rap is Rather Cool

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

A to the C to the New Leaf (or something)

So Animal Crossing: New Leaf represents quite an achievement for Nintendo, as gamers ranging from young children to grisly old cynics are all running their towns and having fun while doing it. It's magical indeed when a game as whimsical as this captures such a wide audience, and if Nintendo could bottle that essence for every game it certainly would.

One of the best things about the series is that, being full of bizarre ideas and having a peculiar premise, its impact is such that it inspires fan art and tributes that couldn't be much more diverse. One that we've stumbled across today courtesy of Kotaku — though it's actually been online for a while — is rap song Crossing From the Bottom (Started From the Bottom Parody) by Youtube artist Broken Pixels; as the title makes clear, it's based on a Drake track.

Not all AC raps are worth listening to, but this one does sample the iconic music from the game and is a lot of fun. Good music, loads of effort in the video, so surely worth a few minutes of anyone's day.

Awful. Same 2 lines over and over again. Oh wait that's rap in a nutshell. Could have at least been interesting if he would have started hitting on the Isabella chick.

@ZephyrTheLegend I'd ask you Drake is, but, I'll assume its a talentless rapper. And the repetition doesn't shock me, just bores me.

People are allowed to come up with their own tune. Crazy....

Actually, since they talk by just spelling each word really fast, it should technically be possible to understand them. With some technical help probably... Yes yes!

I love how they tried to create something funny. kudos. Love the heads and the isabelle part. edit: and they have a cute white boy between them. xD <3

honestly I think it's dope and follows the game to a "T"... and also using the Drake track works perfectly for the game itself... nice... ..

for those that felt it was not "creative" enough maybe you should look them up... they should have other music besides this..... nice to hear something else in hiphop for a change..
