The 50 Best Video Game References In Hip-Hop

48. Eminem, "Despicable (Freestyle)" (2010)

Lyric: "Jackass, eat a donkey dick / the game I just about conquered it / like Donkey Kong, I'm bonkers, bitch / I'm the king of this honky shit"

Sure, the classic title fits perfectly in the flow and cadence here, but don't think it's just a reference. Em told us himself in his 2009 cover story to check the high score on the DK cabinet that he owns, saying, "I'm pretty nasty at Donkey Kong, B." At the time, his high schore was 229K, but he's upgraded that pretty significantly since then. Beating his own score less than two months before this freestyle drops? Sounds like art imitating life to us.
