New DK rap for this game!

Postby GameFreak » Sat May 02, 2015 7:25 pm

Once Yooka-Laylee's Kickstarter gains 1,100,000 they'll add a new rap song similar to the infamous DK rap in DK64 to play in the end credits. Grant Kirkhope wrote the original song and Chris Sutherland did vocals for it and I'm sure they'll do so again.

What do you guys think of this? Have any possible lyrics in mind?

I for one don't want it to play on the end credits. I think like in DK64, should play right as you start the game, explaining what the heroes can do and such.

I don't want to pretend like I know the new characters, but for some reason I don't see a DK-style rap track working as well with Yooka and Laylee as it did with the crew. But I never would have guessed that the DK rap would have turned out as well as it did, so I guess I'll just place my trust in Grant.

Maybe it'll have a more mellow tribe called quest inspired flow, haha

Personally, I prefer it in the ending instead of the intro.

Hopefully Playtonic doesnt add the word "Hell" somewhere in this rap or softy Nintendo will get mad and not let them release it.

Having the rap play during the credits would be the perfect reward for beating the game! :D

It's a really great idea to have a DK like rap at the ending credits, as it ends the game on a high note. Anyway, something what would be even better than just having Chris Sutherland rapping cheesy lines about Yooka and Laylee, is that the main villains are also included in the rap. Because it will be quite amusing that Chris raps about them too, and original instead of just Yooka and Laylee the main protagonists as the DK Rap was.

I would prefer the rap at the ending. And the intro more like banjo, but this time playing the ukulele.

A bonus "Music Video" (in vain of DK64) after perhaps collecting all the Pagies would be more fun than just after credits.

I'm pretty sure Playtonic specified it was during the credits. At the end.
Make the forum great again.
