Games, RPGs in particular, would be a lot better with rap music

I have probably seen more anime than anyone else on this board and I have not yet seen a show with a full rap soundtrack. Finding even a single rap in a soundtrack is not even common. Rap is terrible no matter who sings it including rap in Japanese.


You haven't seen enough anime then because you missed Samurai Champloo and Afro Samurai, both of which features scores that are entirely comprised of hip hop songs. Samurai Champloo itself uses hip hop culture, aesthetics and music as a thematic device within the series (in fact, an entire episode is devoted to Mugen mastering the art of graffiti). Then you have shows like Tenjou Tenghe, which is not a hip hop oriented show, but the intro is a hip hop song.

I'm a big fan of hip hop, but I believe that hip hop and video games rarely go well together.

I can't think of any good combinations off the top of my head except when hip hop is played on radio stations such as in GTA.

The World Ends With You
Grand Theft Auto

Ah no thanks, and they already did that with Star Ocean Till The End of Time, went a jazzy yet urban hip hop way, this is also in Grandia series, or somewhat of it, so no ty.

Man, people still do the whole "rap isn't music" thing? Why? Because the vocals? What about the instrumentals; if that isn't music, wtf is it?


Instrumentals? You mean someone using computer then running that riff through a mixer? Hahahahahaha.....right, music...


You mean where they take 30 second sound loops from REAL musicians and talk while you're trying to figure out who they stole the sound bite from? That's not art, that's plagerism.

I have seen Samurai Champloo and Tenjho Tenge and like I said they do not have a soundtrack completely filled with rap. I never said there are no rap songs in anime (although I wish this were the case). Otaku in Japan prefer their j-pop with female vocalists.

What's with all this rap hate? It's one thing to not like a song but to make wide blanket statements about an entire genre is not only ignorant, its ******* stupid.
