Katsuhiro Harada knows how to drop a beat in this fan-made rap remix called Shut Up, Don't Ask For S*** and even the director himself loves it

This is pretty bumpin'

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 may have featured the one and only Snoop Dogg, but the series has its true boss in director Katsuhiro Harada, who can also apparently lay down some bars with the help of a fan turned music producer.

During his stage entrance at the Tekken World Tour Finals this past weekend, Harada hit us all with some more memorable lines as he prepared to dish out the new character announcements telling everyone to "shut up, shut up, shut up and sit the hell down" followed by his signature tag line of "don't ask me for s***."

Fighting game fan, music producer and remixer Natsu Fuji liked those lines so much that he made Harada his own rap song fittingly titled 'Shut Up (Don't Ask For S***)' in a short clip form. The longtime Tekken director caught wind of the mix and requested a full version — which Natsu then delivered.

As someone who doesn't know much about the modern rap scene, the song itself sounds like some urbana trap mixed with a nice bass line and other sub-genre mashups that is actually surprisingly good and fun.

Harada first acknowledged the remix on Twitter, which along with the community feedback, had Fuji make the 40-second clip into a full 2-minute song — though it still only features the same lines.

The only critique the Bandai Namco boss offered up was he wished that Fuji included his funny rant against Tasty Steve's singing doing commentary during finals shortly after... so maybe we'll be getting a version 2 of the song at some point since there's certainly enough to add in with all of the great lines Harada has had.

You can take a listen to the song below as well as check out Harada's reaction to the video though of course be warned there is some NSFW language in the song given its title.
