Remember when rap was the hype new thing, but was safe enough to be in commercials and on sitcoms? Unrap is a site dedicated to those funky fresh years in the late ’80s and early ’90s when Barney Rubble, Chicken Nuggets and The Chicago Bears all kicked ill rhymes.
We are always looking for inspiration. Especially in these following categories:
- Commercials where the product’s mascot raps (extra props if they kick it off by rhyming “___and I’m here to say” with “___in a major way.”)
-Iconic TV characters on the mic.
-TV anchors rapping, especially weather forecasters.
-Corporate training videos.
-Movie scenes (especially from the end credits).
- Music videos from the New Jack Swing era when record labels made all black singers try and spit a verse. For example, “Every Little Step” by Bobby Brown.
-Any musician that doesn’t usually rap, rapping (“Rapture” by Blondie, Dee Dee King).
