The great Zelda musical tribute celebration! Day three!

Today's festivities are all about sick flows and phat beats. We kicked off yesterday with a lyrical spin on the NES original, but today we flip the script and lead with "Zelda II" by my favorite geek music duo, The Adventures of Duane & BrandO. Unfortunately, Duane and BrandO have since disbanded, but they've left behind a legacy of fun jams that you just wanna rap along to on long car rides.

DnB also have a cover of the original game, which I've slotted after the jump. Also after the jump, catch a joint by none other than Mega Ran plus a hilariously awesome Wind Waker beatbox. Let's get to steppin'!

 

And here's "Zelda" by The Adventures of Duane & BrandO. Obviously, I should have posted this one before the follow-up; I just think "Zelda II" is a billion times better. You should notice a few lyrical motifs shared between the two songs, linking them not only thematically but structurally as well. It's a nice touch.

Hell yeah, Mega Ran! Off Random's Forever Famicom DLC EP is "Hero Muzik" featuring Ilyas of hip hop group Tanya Morgan. It uses the title theme from Zelda II as a backing for a "hero to the rescue" anthem. It's also injected with a bunch of game references beyond Zelda, from God of War to Millipede. Bonus game love!

"Link's Barrel Beat" by Jake "Jenjamik" Clark takes Link's various grunts from Wind Waker and arranges them into one totally sick beatbox. The best part about it is that it loops endlessly! To get the full experience, hit the link to visit the movie's Newgrounds page and just let that sucker run for about half an hour or until your ears bleed!

TTFN! Ta ta for now!
