Assassin's Creed III Rap Gives the British a Beat (Down)


Watch Connor Kenway light up the stage and wax a chump like a candle.

With Assassin's Creed III finally creeping our way October 30, Smosh Games has released an original music video following new series protagonist Connor Kenway as he battles the Brits not with his hatchet, but with his razor-sharp lyrics (okay, so there's some hatchet in there, too). It must be pretty tough to blend in while busting dope rhymes all over 18th century America, but hey, wearing garish white robes on a park bench in plain sight never seemed to alert the templars, so who are we to judge the guy's strategy?

Like any rap worth its salt, Connor's song about surreptitiously knifing his foes wouldn't be complete without some worthy backup. First President of the United States and certified badass George Washington makes a cameo in a way we can only hope makes it into the actual game.

You can find more videos like this one on Smosh's YouTube channel [http://www.youtube.com/user/SmoshGames].

Thought you played as a Native American in Assassins Creed III... funny that he sides with the group that nearly wipe them from the face of the planet. Realism is realistic in how real it is.

But seriously guys, yeah... we get it. You like to fixate on being considered less important than beating France(Yes, that is why America beat the British Empire.), personally I would focus my efforts on my own achievements but whatever.

Actually, the developers are based in Montreal, Quebec. Which is in Canada, not the United States. And the official language is French. Just something to think about.

PS: Also, as a product of the American education system, I can say that what they teach us (after the "believing in Santa Claus" years, anyway) is that we would've been totally boned without the French. Just something else to think about.

PPS: Aaand you can't really claim that Connor is supposed to represent American(That is, colonial American) achievement, as he's half British and half Native American. AND the developers claim that he has enemies and allies on both sides of the war. (Meaning American Templars and British Assassins) So it's not "America Good, British Bad". But even if it was, it wouldn't matter, because the developers aren't actually American. So we can't be blamed for whatever the Canadians come up with.

The rap itself was mediocre but the video was hilarious. Something about the 'mad serial killer' face while chopping up carrots.

Watching this video made me realize something. There's absolutely nothing about Connor's character that doesn't bring this picture to mind:



I really don't know if I can bring myself to play the game now.

Yeah, that rap was pretty poor I thought. Auto-tuning is never pleasant and the actual flow of the rap was broken and awkward. The George Washington verse was actually done well, though, I thought. I did find it kind of funny though, particularly the carrot-chopping, and Washington's spin kick in the final sequence :D

Ultimately, not really all that good. Better gaming rappers exist - Dan Bull's already been posted in this thread, and even Miracle of Sound rapped better in his Blood of the Creed song, and with more clever lyrics and more impressive music. Do try again, Smosh, the other side of the pond is beating you.

These games are getting even more stupid if that's at all possible. Watch out for aliens, Nazis and zombies in the next installment.

Well that was unentertaining! I know I'm all giddy for the next AC so am prone to watch anything that may have something to do with it, but that was just... pants!

Explain yourself!

You can't say that something is becoming more stupid on a thread discussing a 3rd party mock rap without a reason!

As such, this applies!
