“Slurp it, suck it, I know we all like it.”
PaRappa the Rapper, Masaya Matsuura’s little lovelorn dog that could (rap) pretty much kick-started the rhythm-action genre single-pawed. NanaOn-Sha followed up with the twisted tale of a rocking ungulate destined to take a trip to Hell and back – UmJammer Lammy – before PaRappa the Rapper returned for one (apparently) final showdown on PS2. Leon, Darren Gargette and new Cane and Rinser Ryan Hamann contemplate the surrealist charm of the loose PaRappa ‘trilogy’ in this three game edition of the podcast.
Music used in this issue:
1: PaRappa’s Greeting by Masaya Matsuura
2: Say ‘I Gotta Believe’ by PaRappa the Rapper Vs. Double featuring De La Soul
