Something has been really disturbing me about the DK rap.
It may seem innocent at the surface, but I think there's a hidden message trying to push some kind of agenda, or a dark plea for help buried in there somewhere; possibly both.
Firstly, Tiny's lyrics. "This Kong's got style, so listen up dudes" What is this trying to convey? That she is the only one who has style? Is it implying that males cannot, in fact, posses style? The use of "dudes" would lean to this interpretation, as that statement that she has style, so the men should listen implies that they are without style or possibly incapable of obtaining it.
However, there's another layer to this. It isn't simply saying that women have style and men do not. As it feels the need to state that "THIS kong has style." This phrasing would imply style is an abnormal thing that needs to be addressed if one has it.
There is a darker theme to it when we prod even deeper. Lankey Kong is introduced as "He has no style, He has no grace" Why would it feel the need to explain he does not posses style? It implies that at one point he did, in fact , have style. Could Tiny have somehow taken his style? They're both introduced right next to each other. If this is true, then who could have stolen his grace?
The "Dk rap" is a song about a Kong who is a shell of his former self, robbed of all his good qualities, forever shunned by society tho he has committed no wrongs.
>Why would it feel the need to explain he does not posses style? It implies that at one point he did
Having style is not a requirement for having no style
lay off the drugs bro, you're freaking everyone out with your crazy
As a proffesor of kong studies at uq I would say that this is just scratching the surface of the dark truth.
Consider this, in donkey kong country dk has to get back his banana hoard, which he stores in a massive cave under his house. All fresh bananas.
How long do bananas last, certainly not long enough for him to eat them all. But still the banana wealthy kong is compelled to track down these bananas he has no use for risking life and limb. And he removes them from the ecosystem, so nobody can use them and given the pristine condition of his hoard he must be constantly replacing them.
I would say donkey kong himself is a broken shell of a man compulsively acting out the upkeep of this hoard, a sisyphean task. It serves him no purpose and it will never end but he must make sure there are thousands of fresh bananas under his house at any one time.
Dinkey Kong is trapped within the prison of his own mind.
OK, I'm new on this board. Is this what it's like all the time? When do the (at least semi-lucid) adults come out? I'm not even sure who this board is for. Starting to feel like containment.
>tfw this song is still better than most rap today
Just as Donkey Kong 64 is a containment for the souls of the previous games, for instance, Donkey Kong Country. They used to have their own country, dude. And K-Rool has deduced it all to an island, DK is trapped and despite finding his friends, unlocking them for play, they will still remain trapped in the dream. The Donkey Kong dream. Just as we are all trapped on a very large floating islnd that the powers that be made lies up about other continents to keep us asleep.
Enter in the American Dream. What we are trapped in, right now.
Alright. You guys seem OK. Good self-awareness vibrations. I'll stay.

ITT: OP talks about himself and projects it into a video game song and thinks it's spooky.
