For the 40th birthday of (grand) father Donkey Kong we had already awarded us an unmarked drawing of the former rare Steve Mayles, who lovingly celebrated four decades of antics, reminiscent of the most beautiful hours of the series on 16-bit consoles. For his part, no matter how well-known a composer, he took the opportunity to express his regret and to check whether the saying “guilt is half forgiven” still works in 2021.
He is finally back
This time it is Grant Kirkhope who places one for the “famous” musical introduction of Donkey Kong 64, the famous “DK Rap”.
Happy 40th Birthday Donkey Kong, it’s an honor to have played a small part in your story and I apologize for exposing you to this fucking terrible rap !! OKAY!! 🤣😂🤣😂

Happy 40th Birthday Donkey Kong, it’s been an honor to play a little part in your story and I apologize for revealing this totally lousy rap to you!
May the Kirkhope dude be reassured: If you can be proud to have composed the soundtracks for GoldenEye 007, Perfect Dark take on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and DJ announced in Mario + The Rabbids Sparks of Hope, we can make a youthful mistake Afford. Despite the numerous attempts by internet users to defend the 1999 freestyle, the composer definitely seems angry with his work. And you ?
