Galactic Empire State of Mind…

April 3, 2011

…And some other classic Hip-hop-based, Star Wars tributes and parodies.

College Humor usually has the funniest videos on the YouTube.  For this amazing Star Wars tribute, CH took the track from Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind and spun it out in a way only Vader, himself, can deliver.  Check it out:

Granted, Star Wars and Hip hop have been romancing for a while now.  The first entry on this site was for the Star Wars Gangsta Rap.  But seriously, everyone loves Star Wars, even real, hardcore, gangsta rappers like Immortal Technique.

**A LITTLE FOREWARNING, THIS NEXT CLIP IS ABSOLUTELY EXPLICIT, VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED**

Did you notice how well real, murder rap and Star Wars just seemed to flow together in that clip?  It’s as though the Force cannot deny the flow of a sick Hip hop beat, and Hip hop can’t deny epic coolness of Star Wars.  Even Snoop Dogg showed up to help promote the Adidas/Star Wars line.

Missed him?  How about this one?

See what I mean, now?  Star Wars and Hip hop were born to be lovers.  Even Yoda can’t deny his feelings.
