Tyler, The Creator, Childish Gambino, MC Lyte (and apparently KiD CuDi) lent their voices to yesterday’s “Rap It Up” episode of Cartoon Network’s animated series Regular Show (the adventures of two 23-year-old friends,a blue jay named Mordecai and a raccoon named Rigby… yep you read that right.). Watch the full episode below.
Synopsis: One day at the snack bar, Tyler, The Creator, Donald Glover, and MC Lyte, better known as the CrewCrew, challenge Kid Cudi to a rap battle, resulting in Kid Cudi losing. Pops shows up and tries to beat them with poetry, but he gets humiliated. Angered, Pops challenges them to a rap duel. He recruits Mordecai and Rigby to help them with the rapping because Pops cannot rap, he can only recite poetry. However, Pops refuses to rap negativity against the CrewCrew, so he decides to stick with poetry. Soon, Mordecai and Rigby realize the beauty of poetry, but they decide not to go after poetry and call Pops a loser. Skips tells Mordecai to help Pops, and they go there to try and settle the score.
