Sesame Street has released a music segment where they rap alongside Common about respect.

What makes the collaboration that much better is the fact that Kaytranada and BadBadNotGood created the beat heard in the entertaining video.

“Respect Brings Us Together: As part of Sesame Street’s 50th anniversary celebration, we have a campaign highlighting the importance of respecting one another, even in disagreement — and even in the case of sworn enemies,” reads a caption for the video on Sesame Street‘s YouTube page.

Aside from their video with Common, Sesame Street has also released a Game of Thrones-inspired video where Elmo encourages Cersei and Tyrion to get along.

Questlove has also appeared in his very own Sesame Street segment. The Roots bandleader appeared on an episode of titled “The Big Pretend Band,” where he proceeds to get drum lessons from “one of the world’s most amazing drummers,” the one and only — Grover.

That’s right, the blue monster also known as Super Grover and Grover Monster, shows Quest a couple of drum patterns in hopes of giving the drummer a challenge. The bit begins with Grover talking about the letter “M” and how the word “Musician” begins with the letter. The puppet then introduces Quest as a musician, only to then have him go through some drum patterns.
