"DK Rap" is a frequently ripped track from Donkey Kong 64 and a major meme on the SiIvaGunner channel.

Description

"DK Rap"[1] is a song that appeared in the intro to Rareware's Nintendo 64 hit Donkey Kong 64, with lyrics written by well-known video game composer Grant Kirkhope. After the rise of the Internet, the "DK Rap" quickly became a meme because of the bizarre lyrics and ridiculous singing voice performed by singers George Andreas and Chris Sutherland.

On the SiIvaGunner channel, the "DK Rap (Unused Version)" rip started a meme about Donkey Kong's Coconut Gun. This is typically referenced in future "DK Rap" rips, and any rips featuring the DK Rap, even more than the original rap. That rip is currently the fourth-most viewed video on the channel, with the Gorilla Version shortly following at the 12th place.

However, in the rip "Main Theme - Superman 64" on August 14, 2016, it was revealed that rips of "DK Rap" are banned from submissions, along with "Snow halation" and "Title Theme & Ending", even though "DK Rap" isn't a major channel meme on the level of the other two. Unlike some other previously-banned sources such as "All Star", it has yet to be unbanned. There have only been four rips of "DK Rap" since: the Anniversary Edition in 2018, the Magnificent Mix in 2019, and the Extended Mix in 2020; as well as one more ripped under DKTV in 2021.

The only given explanation for the ban is that "we already have too many"[2] (despite that there are many frequently ripped tracks that aren't banned).

Lyrics

Here, here, here we go!

So they're finally here,
performing for you.
If you know the words
you can join in too.
Put your hands together
If you wanna clap.
As we take you through
this monkey rap!
HUH!

D.K.! Donkey Kong!

He's the leader of the bunch
You know him well.
He's finally back
to kick some tail.
His Coconut Gun
Can fire in spurts
If he shoots ya
it's gonna hurt.
He's bigger, faster,
and stronger too!
He's the fist member
of the D.K. Crew!
HUH!

D.K.! Donkey Kong!
D.K.! Donkey Kong is here!

This Kong's got style
So listen up dudes
She can shrink in size
To suit her mood.
She's quick and nimble
when she needs to be
She can float through the air
and climb up trees.
If you choose her
you'll not choose wrong,
with a skip and a hop
she's one cool Kong!
HUH!

D.K.! Donkey Kong!

He has no style.
He has no grace.
Th-th-th-th-this Kong
has a funny face.
He can handstand
When he needs to
And stretch his arms out
Just for you.
Inflate himself
just like a balloon.
Th-th-th-this crazy Kong
just digs this tune!
HUH!

D.K.! Donkey Kong!
D.K.! Donkey Kong is here!

He's back again,
and about time too
and this time
he's in the mood.
He can fly real high
with his jetpack on
With his pistols out
he's one tough Kong.
He'll make you smile
when he plays his tune.
But Kremlings beware,
'cause he's after you!
HUH!

D.K.! Donkey Kong!
HUH!

Finally,
he's here for you
It's the last member
of the DK Crew.
This Kong's so strong,
it isn't funny
Can make a Kremling
cry out for mummy.
Can pick up a boulder
with relative ease
Makes crushing rocks
seem such a breeze.
He may move slow,
he can't jump high,
but this Kong's
one hell of a guy!
HUH!

C'mon Cranky, take it to the fridge!

Wa-wa-wa-walnuts, peanuts, pineapple smells,
grapes, melons, oranges and coconut shells, ahh yeah!
Walnuts, peanuts, pineapple smells,
grapes, melons, oranges and coconut shells, ahh yeah!
(explosion)
