Sesame Street was born in New York City. Its characters have become more in touch with hip-hop than any other children’s show to date. Big Bird recently flexed his rapping skills when he covered Big Pun’s “Still Not A Player.” Now, Cookie Monster has covered a song from another major New York emcee in a new, hilarious mash-up. YouTube user AnimalRobot pulled off an epic mash-up of Cookie Monster rapping Busta Rhymes’ “Gimme Some More.”
Busta Rhymes’ original visual for his 1998 single off E.L.E. actually features a big, blue monster and a lot of other trippy shit. The creator of the mash-up attempted to make his own, out-of-this-world version of the song by using footage from Sesame Street’s “Cookie Of Oz,” its parody of the “Wizard Of Oz.” The cookie addict’s lip-syncing skills are on point and would make Busta himself laugh uncontrollably. Watch the video above.
