* The first boss theme for ''VideoGame/{{Einhander}}'', [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=FjLSrlCYeFg surprisingly an]] EarWorm. This rap was justified by being a sample from a then-famous disc, so even ''ArTonelico'' [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=winKFP3Pelg got in on the fun]].

Added DiffLines:

* The single "World in Motion" by Music/NewOrder, made for England's 1990 FIFA World Cup bid, has a cringe-inducing rap bridge performed by England footballer John Barnes. [[https://youtu.be/Re4aDJL3heA?t=2m30s It's quite something to behold.]]

It can be, but is not necessarily, a rapping bridge. This is generally due to deals made by record companies to [[MusicIsPolitics promote both artists]]. Or, more simply, the two could be genuine friends who work together all the time. Such songs are often {{bowdlerise}}d on the radio, when the entire rap verse is deleted even if it contains nothing questionable, as if the musical concept itself is offensive. This happens a lot during eras when Top 40 and urban radio don't have a lot of crossover artists -- it's an attempt by labels to tentatively promote pop artists to a more urban audience and vice versa without committing to a verse they can't remove.

* The now little-remembered CharityMotivationSong "Voices That Care" included a brief rap by WillSmith. This was even more jarringly, awkwardly done in the Dutch answer to this, ď[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYynkgJi1s4 Als je iets kan doen]]Ē by Artiesten voor Azië.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBDa4wTq0oI Final Fight stage theme]] in ''VideoGame/CapcomVsSNKMillenniumFight2000'' has a gangster rap segment, complete with profanity. Even more wild is that you can only hear those lyrics when playing the arcade version of the game. The console ports of the game cut out the rap segment, because of the profanity.

* Creator/DemetriMartin brings this trope up in his 2015 special ''Live (At The Time).''
-->'''Demetri:''' I just thought that was hilarious, because you never see that in any other art form. Not like literature; y'know, you're reading a book: "What'd you think of that novel?" "Pretty good, y'know, I got into the story, first seven chapters. Then in the middle there was a really angry first-person essay... this other writer, I dunno if they're friends or something. Y'know, this guy has a big dick, he's gonna sleep with all these women, and it's a whole thing. He's not gonna buy 'em stuff, though, he made that clear. He'll sleep with them, but he's not looking to get tied down. All caps. Very confident. Lot of it rhymed, and then the essay was over and it went back to the story; y'know, it was all right."
