I’m sure there’s a whole subgenre of rappers sampling video game music, but, other than this great Open Mike Eagle track, I was never aware of any great video-game-rap albums.
That is, I didn’t know of any good albums until now.
The Ocarina of Rhyme was made back in 2009 by rap producer Team Teamwork (Tim Jacques) in which he mixed classic raps with the music of the classic video game The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. You’ve never heard Jay Z, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg like this, and you’ll never think of Zelda the same way ever again.
