Here is a Clip of Porky the Pig Rapping as "the Notorious P.I.G." in 'Space Jam: A New Legacy'
You'll be ready to die after watching this Space Jam: A New Legacy clip.
Space Jam has a long history with hip-hop. The soundtrack for the 1996 classic features the classic posse cut "Hit 'Em High (The Monstars' Anthem)" and a rap from Bugs Bunny (one that JAY-Z wrote.)
Well the sequel, Space Jam: A New legacy, will also have hip-hop elements. There's a soundtrack, featuring raps from Lil Baby and BROCKHAMPTON, and apparently a scene of Porky the Pig cosplaying as the Notorious B.I.G.
IGN premiered the clip and it's a doozy. It features the iconic sputtering pig in a 8 Mile, battle rap scenario. His challenger is AI G. Rhythm (played by Don Cheadle). Porky, who goes by the name the Notorious P.I.G., is wearing sunglasses, a backwards hat, and a vest.
Over Craig Mack's "Flava In Ya Ear" beat, Porky raps:
Word up it’s porky pig they call me P-Double
Al G. step to me he don’t want no trouble
I was famous before the internet
Since 1935 I been gettin’ respect
This pig is lit, I’m super legit
Every time I’m out in public people asking me for pics
You? Nobody knows you when you walk the stree
How your last name Rhythm and you still off-beat?
Porky ends the freestyle with his famous tagline, "that's all folks." But, inexplicably, he doesn't stutter.
After the clip was release, veteran rapper Murs revealed on Twitter that he was the one who wrote the verse. It was also his first ghostwriting "gig," which is super cool.
Space Jam: A New Legacy will hit theaters and HBO Max on July 16th. This is the height of cinema, folks. You can watch the clip of the Notorious P.I.G. rapping below.
