Hiphop heads and video gamers have a similar tendency to geek-out at their respective enthusiasms. It should come as no surprise that brehs are increasingly mixing these two latter 20th century cultural phenomena.

Firstly, Team Teamwork has mashed together Zelda, Dr Dre, Jay-Z, Clipse, Aesop Rock and many other hiphop stars to create The Ocarina of Rhyme. Sillygood.

Secondly, if you haven’t heard Jesse Tugboat’s 8bit hiphop medley, listen and download:

Jay-Z — Dirt Off Your Shoulders
T.I — What You Know
Chamillionaire — Ridin’
Ludacris — What’s Ya Fantasy
Bonecrusher — Neva Scared
Twista & Kanye — Overnight Celebrity
Ludacris — Move Bitch
Lil’ Jon — Get Low
Kanye — Gold Digger

Thirdly, less hiphop linked, but still good, Tettix is an 8bit musician and he just released his new album called T.K.O.E.P. Seven tracks of original music inspired by old school fighting games. Nangy!
