9 Times YouTube Rap Mashups Made Our Childhood Memories Cooler

Roll your blunts and turn on your speakers: It’s time to revisit your favorite classic childhood cartoons and films, with a modern rap twist on YouTube. These mashups shouldn’t sound so good, but they work so well. Your childhood would have been lowkey lit if these mashups existed when the films they’re inspired by were created.

“I Just Can’t Wait For Booty” is a Matt Hodges mashup of The Lion King’s “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” and the classic Bubba Sparxxx & Ying Yang Twins masterpiece, “Ms. New Booty.”

Another “Ms. New Booty” mashup, this time with The Little Mermaid’s “Under The Sea.” Ariel is, quite literally, the original Miss New Booty. Fins to legs, get it? No? Okay, moving along.

“That Girl Worth Fighting For” is an incredibly catchy mix of the song from Mulan featuring Wayne, Pharrell and Gucci Mane.

This mashup of music from Thomas the Tank Engine and Biggie Smalls’ acapella bars including “Come On,” “Machine Gun Funk,” and “Sky Is The Limit” works so, so well. The video’s gotten nearly 17 million views already. If only Biggie were alive to witness this.

T.I., Lady Gaga and more appear on this mashup of “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King.” So many Lion King mashups exist out there.

Why does the Thomas the Tank Engine theme fit so well with rap? This time, Snoop gets in on it.

The first-ever feature length animated Disney film and Kanye West. A match made in rap heaven.

Another Little Mermaid classic, another Snoop Dogg cameo. If you can get through this without dancing in your seat, your willpower is strong.

This one’s probably not from your childhood, but it’s someone’s childhood, and deserving of recognition nonetheless. Frozen and A$AP Ferg were meant to be together.
