Is that Parappa in the Yooka-Laylee rap?

Postby lankykong422 » Sun Apr 09, 2017 5:46 pm

As I've listened to the Yooka Laylee rap (which is awesome btw)--I've noticed something...the high voice sounds a whole lot like Parappa the Rapper. Any chance Playtonic hired the voice actor without telling anyone?

I think it's either Kirkhope or Sutherland doing sort of an MC Chris impression (or some other 90's-ish Hip Hop artist.

It's possible, but also consider that a quick Google of Dred Foxx will show you he's no stranger to controversy and hasn't voiced the character of Parappa or anything for that matter in a while.

The same voice actor who stole money from one of his fans, then insulted him?
