"DK Rap" 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.
