    Rider, not Raider. ;) 

    Odds are, I don't much care about the video anyway. Just perturbed that YouTube's gone all racist on me.

    This one has always been a favorite of mine:

    or if you prefer it with clips of Blaster and Tracks in a discotheque:

    If you're a hip hop head magic, you might be interested in this guy. He's an underground cat out in New York who used to go by One Man Army but changed it to One.Be.Lo (probably because of the band One Man Army).

    This is from the second verse from his song Rocketship:

    [One.Be.Lo]
    Yo, I'm flowin now to blow the microphone out
    I spit the flows out, rinse the Scope mouth, no doubt
    Tickets sold out, black and white kids, Diff'rent Strokes house
    +Transform+ you pessimists to optimists and roll out
    +Decepticons+ style, Megatron, bloaw

    Check the rhyme files, 007 stretch beyond bounds
    of the earth, moon, universe, soon to burst through
    Three sixty-five, prepare live, you April 1st, +Fool+
    These wannabe best rappers hold the wet bladders
    Need a step ladder, still couldn't reach my best status
    Inspector Gadget, extra baggage, I was blessed to have it (skills)
    You must be still guessin at it, still testin average
    I'm never slippin even if you peeled a fresh banana
    The moves I make are +checks+ and balance like a chess fanatic
    You less advantage, manic depressin, impress the panic
    Lyrics hot enough to melt your plastic, burn your flesh to ashes (ouch)
    That's what you urn/earn when you not well rehearsed
    Somebody gotta help preserve this art form, myself preferred
    Check the verse, it's like a +Magic+ spell with words
    These wack emcees prolly felt it worse than a Celtic +Bird+

    Similar to the One.be.lo thing above... Vast Aire (Can Ox) comes with "I'm like Optimus Prime/With a ninja face" at the start of "Elixir"; Big Daddy Kane refers to "transforming on stage like a Decepticon" in "Smooth Operator"... and i'm sure i've other rap records with Decepticon references on 'em... don't Black Sheep mention being "Decepticated" (like that's a word) on "Choice Is Yours"?

    And on the rock tip, the mighty Faith No More of course referenced TFs in "We Care A Lot". There must be others.

    On a real tangent, break hunters might also note that a cue from the TF cartoon soundtack (best example being the bit in the pilot episode, where Jazz goes up the elevator) is kinda funky and has made it's way onto a few mixtapes over the years

    I don't really wish harm on anybody, but some people just need to get sense knocked into them. This kid is one of them. Glad Young Berger knocked out & his chain taken,lol

    It was a bad idea bad mouthing the D in the first place. Guess he thought he was bigger than he was and tried to get brave by going out there. These dude's are having as much fun with that chain as anybody on this board would,lol

    YouTube - Trick Trick's Daughter w/ Yung Berg's Chain???

    There's a group out of Seattle called Optimus Rhyme, who all have their secret rapper codenames based on TF characters too. They're pretty good, and carried the concept a lot longer than I thought they would'a.

    DMX has a few lines in "Get at me dog", like "transform and roll out", I'm pretty sure he's referenced Tf's a few times in other songs too.

    Rahzel references Tf's a lot too, and sneaks the transformation sound in some of his beatboxing.

    Hip Hop loves Transformers, I can't even count all the throwaway lines like "transform like megatron" etc I've heard over the years. Even "thugs" were kids once too :)
