De La Soul: 'Me, Myself and I'
Game: Pa Rappa the Rapper

The game that single handley invented 'music / rhythm games' (ok maybe this and Samba Di Amigo), featured a dog in a hat rapping with rasta Frogs, Onion-head Karate masters and an auto-cratic driver instructor called 'Instructor Mooselini' (I shit you not), I cannot explain how much I love this game. For the release of the sequel De La Soul released a duet with Pa Rapper himself, and I own this record on heavy-weight 7". Oh yes.
