‘Straight Outta Compton’: This video of Barney rapping N.W.A. is glorious

Dare we call this video of Barney the dinosaur rapping along with gangsta rap heroes N.W.A. “glorious”?

Yes, we do. It’s simple editing, but this stitch-together is so very awesome because of the subject matter: Children’s television champ Barney the purple dinosaur paired with N.W.A. MCs Ice Cube, Eazy-E and MC Ren.

For what it’s worth, Barney takes on Ice Cube’s lead rhyme while BJ (the yellow friend) takes on MC Ren’s verse and Baby Bop (the green pal) knocks out Eazy’s song-closing verse. It’s mesmerizing to follow, so cheers to whoever put the time together to knock this out.
