Let Me Introduce You to the Ocarina of Rhyme

Holy crap, I didn’t think Googling “Zelda ghetto” would turn up anything, much less an image as cool as this. And it’s the perfect way to open up what you’re about the experience with the Ocarina of Rhyme.

It was introduced to me by a reader when I posted this Kirby/Snoop Dogg mash-up, and my eyes were opened that the concept of mixing rap and video game tracks was not a new one.

It was created by Team Teamwork (great name), and I’ve posted the best tracks I can find from it below, which may in fact be all of them. If this doesn’t help you rock out during your school or work day, I’m not sure what will.

Busta Rhymes – Don’t Touch Me (Gerudo Valley)


Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg – Still D.R.E (Getting Treasure)


MF Doom – Vomit (Lon Lon Ranch)


Common – I Used to Love H.E.R. (Hyrule Market)


Aesop Rock – Jumper Cables (Goron Village)


Clipse – Virginia (Lost Woods)


Slim Thug and Mikes Jones – Still Tippin’ (Great Fairy’s Fountain)


Jay-Z – No Hook (Meeting the Owl)


Spank Rock – IMC (Zora’s Domain)
