Okay, so here's the brief intro blog. My name's Frankie. I'm a long time lurker, first (or second) time poster, blah blah blah. I'll throw a comment up here and there when I'm feeling feisty.

I've been playing games since I was about 4 years old brutalizing my dad's Atari 2600. I was a Nintendo guy for most of my life.. NES, SNES, Game Boy, N64.. then I got a PS2 and never looked back. I still fuck around with Nintendo here and there. My DS is one of my most favorite possessions of all time, and I owned a Wii for.. a few months. Long enough to play Mario Galaxy, at least.

I now have a 360, PS3.. still rock the PS2.. PSP, and DS. I'm not in a list-making mood, so I'm not gonna go into my favorite games right now, although EVERYTHING has taken a backseat to Persona 4 lately.

On to the meat of the post..

Being a long time hip hop fan, and an even longer time video game player, I always get a little tight in the pants when I hear about rappers doing songs about gaming. Often, the songs don't live up to my excitement. The last one I recall was off of Ludacris's new album, and it was.. okay.

I've personally never heard of People Under The Stairs before today, but I think this track takes the cake as far as game-related hip hop goes. There are, as expected, a bunch of shout-outs to different games like San Andreas, Mario (duh), Contra, etc. and the beat is so on point it's ridiculous.

Whoever can pick out the most game references in the comments wins.. nothing, but I'll think you're cool.
