Ryu and Ken take the 8-mile route with a rap battle in new animated music video from EgoRaptor, whose rhymes will out-hado the others?

EgoRaptor has made quite the name for himself in various internet communities throughout the years, but he never ceases to impress.

His latest video, produced with the help of Spazkidin3d, shows a rap battle between a Ryu full of attitude and a somewhat meeker Ken.

Thye said that this video featured Ryu and Ken... well then, Why is DAN in it? Nice try Spazkid, I saw what went on here

Also this must have been a match with Shoryukens disabled, not one was thrown... also can we patch Ryu's damage? He did a verse, a hadouken, a 5 hit link, and an lk tatsu to defeat Ken. Obviously needs to be patched

The rap is boring and he used another animator to gain views.
You're starting to dissapoint me, Arin.

Has a single one of these videos ever been funny in all of human history? Parodies, particularly rap-battles are the most low and base comedy imaginable...

Sad thing is that animation looks like it took some serious work, the idea is just so down on imagination.

Well, Hip-Hop and Street Fighter go hand in hand. I mean...STREET Fighter; Keyword being "STREET" - Hip-Hop is often regarded as urban, STREET music. That said, it's only fitting for SF to have an urban feel to it. Hence, why Cody has a heavy, Hip-Hop theme in SFIV. He's from the mean STREETS of Metro City (which is basically Compton). Niggaz ain't listenin' to Celine Dion in the streets.

In regards to the damage it was a sf2 rap battle not sf4

Well said. Preach brotha

lukecage83 said on March 21, 2014 at 9:11 a.m.

I'm speaking in general, man. But this video, regardless of how silly it is, is in your face, confrontational RAP - which can only be found in the street!

JACOB?

rosy said on March 21, 2014 at 9:14 a.m.

They did put a lot of work on its animation. Awesome job. Though I don't know the single word they say. It's too fast for me :p

#24
lukecage83 said on March 21, 2014 at 9:15 a.m.

RIGHT? I think a lot these guys just hate rap music lol

#25
paralyzing said on March 21, 2014 at 9:16 a.m.

it wasn't as cringeworthy as I expected. Pretty funny with Ken's part lol

Sure you can!

SirKenjamin said on March 21, 2014 at 9:27 a.m.

Well then why don't you grace us with you genius and show the world what is truly great. Oh wait that's right you're just another talentless critic that has most likely never attempted to create a project that you yourself enjoyed and felt motivated to do. Hey guess what bud, the world could careless about you're smug elitist attitude. Make a video or a song or something and prove to me you could pull off any idea be it basic or extraordinary creative- till then shuuuud up.

Ah don't forget about Street Fighter 3 Third Strike's intro and character select music.

Metro city is basically compton? More like New York during the war on drugs mixed with a 'Warriors" feel.

this was meh!!!
i liked Doom vs Wesker in the Assist Me series that was 10 times better

It seemed to me that Ryu and Ken's roles were reversed in this animation.

If I could like this comment 5 times, I would like it 10.

BlackOnyxThunder said on March 21, 2014 at 10:04 a.m.

I think anyone can agree that Metro City is more like Detroit. Crimes, gangs, "street" music. Seems most feasible...

#36
CrimsonMoonMist said on March 21, 2014 at 10:36 a.m.

I was dreading that this would be horrible when it popped up in my sub-box, it very much isn't, surprisingly (sheer oddity of smack-talkin' Ryu and meek Ken aside). There were some funny rhymes in there that made me smirk.

Even though I don't listen to hip-hop or rap music that much I like it.
A lot of heart was put into it. Much more than it is in these more or less stupid chart-songs oO

OmegaZero said on March 21, 2014 at 1:39 p.m.

Stuff that egoraptor (arin hanson) did for the vid, help writing the song, do the majority of the singing.

The animator in charge spadkid, frankly spadkid is a better animator than egoraptor, ninja sex party composed the music, dan the led singer do much of the writing, ninja brian composed pretty much all the music.

Starbomb is the name of the album they gave to it, is a collaboration between ninja sex party an egoraptor, animations take a long time to create, egoraptor already animated 1 song, an theres a ton of songs in the album, so its just natural to get multiple animators to animate the whole album, dont be suprise to see ross animating a song in the future, ricepirate, stamper, an many others are probably gonna take part into the animating the songs.

You know, you can painstakingly make an animation. carefully line draw every frame, create a separate layer to add shadows in (again for every frame), fully color the entire thing, animate background sequences to overlay animation onto, HELL you can even put it over a cool funny song that's equally highly produced

But it doesn't matter...
on the internet it's still sucks.

#56
Jaaj301 said on March 22, 2014 at 8:15 a.m.

I always found Arin kind of a jerk, with his overgrown ego and generally annoying attitude. Very overrated personality imo.

This mediocre rap full of unnecessary swearing confirms this. The only remotely funny part was Ken.

Ha ha that's some funny stuff, love the ending.
