Follow me: Bringing Oldschool Gaming into Rap Music [Clip]

I may not really be into rap music, but I can certainly appreciate when something has been superbly done, especially when it’s in a particularly geeky way. Not only is the “follow me” clip a masterpiece of nostalgia for oldschool gamers like me, but it also features an 8-bit music track that is sure to bring back fond memories of ye olde gaming days. Kudos to Swedish hip hop artist Pato Pooh and his team for an amazing clip that is sure to spread through the web like wildfire in the coming weeks.

  1. There's just something about repping a city like Stockholm that doesn't quite cut it when it comes to "street cred." I can't imagine what it is.

  3. This 8bit theme videos in rap songs, and other songs have been a regular sight in the swedish music scene for over 10 years now. Teddy Bear stockholm, adam tensta, thomas russiak and others.

    And rap isn't about street cred, here it's more about injustice and problems, you know like the rap you used to have in America way back. This kid, isn't even famous in sweden amazed you heard about him hahaha.

  5. Krillz..You act like they have been a regular when they haven't, teddy-bears and russiak did something similar but when you think about it it doesn't even come close to this masterpiece. Adam has never done any nintendo music. So please stop hating and give it up for the talent that is Pato Pooh.

    You also claim that he is not famous in sweden, and he actually was famouse with in the hip hop & urban community but since the release of this video he is now not only famous outside the urban community, he will probably thanks to this song and video be famous all over the world according to all the 600 blog post about him in just a week. much love to Pato Pooh, Sweden's, no, Europes hottest rapper at the moment.

    • Haha you kidding me, he might have been known in a micro sphere in the town he was operating, never heard about him, phoned Gonza he hadn't heard about him either until his release.

      And the video, applaud the video makers, he just tagged along. And it's only a further evolution of Tensta's love for Nintendo and retro games that they worked it out this way.

    • Yeah Adam has never made a video that has something with retro gaming to do, but he tends to references it in his lyrics though. He is of the 8-bit generation for sure and I am sure that he has something to do with this video being produced.
