Strictly 4 S.P.A.R.T.A.N

Courtesy of DB Tha General's new full length Motel6 (aka the long-touted album my favourite Bay Area song of 2013 was the lead-off single for), here's the intro track where he rhymes over Fred Myrow & Malcolm Seagraves' Phantasm theme score, which, of course, was previously freaked up and freaked out on by Doug E. Fresh, Mobb Deep, and Master P:

"My opposition, yeah I got this proposition
These n*ggas they end up missin' pillow talkin' to these bitches
Pillow talkin' to these bitches how a n*gga catch a case
Yeah, they say what they say, but never say it to my face!"

DB Tha General - Motel6 Intro (Phatasm)
(From Motel6 album; 2014)

For the 6 of us DB Tha General obsessives out here on the Rap internet, here's a homemade video for the classic intro to his Welcome To The Navy album (aka the song which announced DB's arrival proper and gave birth to Gassin'!) where a couple of skateboarding pilgrims from Oakland pretend to run up in some drug dealer dude's suburban home and rob him:

Liking how this almost resembles one of the videos Kreayshawn shot for DB's Welcome To The Navy singles in 2009 during the ‘DGainz of Oakland’ phase of her career, but the lads who made this really dropped the ball by ending the video before it got to the song's most infamous line: "Don't be mad I go and you'ze a lame/Your bitch ass daddy shoulda showed you the game!"

Beat is fantastic.

I was gonna say no rap song sampling the Phantasm theme has ever disappointed me, but then I remembered those tumblr rap girls Dark Sister.

Somebody needs to rap over the Friday The 13th TV series intro theme.

Fred said...

It kept bugging me that I had also heard that sample somewhere else, I finally found out :

Ganggsta Pat - The OJ Murder Story : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fodGktNFUYM

where he revisits the whole OJ story, hilarious songs in my opinion.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

That song is all kinds of jaw-dropping, Fred.

Joe said...

Best album out of the bay in a while. And just in time for Valentine's Day.

d said...

lol stall this is the reverse of that Mobstyle post cos I posted up the OJ one and you commented n all. Having visions atm

Im surprised no tumblr youths rapped over the Goosebumps theme
unless Lil B did and I forgot that too.

Eerie Indiana & Are You Afraid Of The Dark would be nice too.

Freddy's Nightmares TV series theme is pretty ill.

Tumblr youths were still a glint in their grand daddy's eye when this traumatised an entire generation.


Scared the shit out of me back in the day.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...


Truly disturbing.
