The actors weren’t kidding when they mentioned that Super Mario Bros. The Movie was going to have something of a musical. It was recently confirmed that it was going to have 3 songs, but a fourth has just been confirmed, one that originated in a video game and that may be for some the best of all. We are talking about the memorable DK Rap, the song with which Donkey Kong made his debut on Nintendo 64, although perhaps many knew it in Super Smash Bros. Melee, a title for which a version with more rap was created. Don’t forget to follow us on Google News.

Will DK Rap appear in Super Mario Bros. The Movie?
Well, a few days after the premiere of Super Mario Bros. The Movie, precisely the actor in charge of playing Donkey Kong, Seth Rogen, revealed that this piece of music appears on the tape and that, in fact, it is with which the primate comes out. “This is objectively one of the worst rap songs ever,” he comments in the Rogen promo video. “An iconic song, an iconic dance number, an iconic gang, an iconic moment in history, 10 bananas out of 10.”
In case you missed it: There are already spoilers for Super Mario Bros. The Movie on the internet.
No further details were provided in this regard, so we don’t know if Donkey Kong will sing the theme or if it will only serve to present it. If we talk about the first, it is very possible that we will hear the DK Rap in Spanish for the first time, as we remember that the film will be in this and many more languages and the main songs are usually localized. Interestingly, Grant Kirkhope, famous video game music composer and creator of DK Rap, noticed this news and received it with emotion. “If they had told me in 1997, when I wrote the worst rap in the history of rap songs, that I was going to be in a Mario Bros. movie, I would have exploded with emotion,” Kirkhope said. “Long live DK Rap.”
If you’d told me in ’97, when I wrote the worst rap track in the history of rap tracks, that it would go on to be in a Mario Bros movie I’d would’ve burst with excitement! Long live the DK Rap! @Sethrogen https://t.co/CtrTr2eb8Z — Grant Kirkhope (@grantkirkhope) March 30, 2023
