Basically, things like characters performing brief rap numbers in stories where it isn't the primary subject.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The masked slasher in ''Film/ScaryMovie'' dances around the room and dispenses some rapid-fire rap lyrics after the other characters invite him to smoke some marijuana.

* ''[[Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg Epic Movie]]'' contains several scenes.
* ''Film/{{Bulworth}}''. A jaded politician decides to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth to the American public… in rap... Significantly [[BetterThanItSounds better than it sounds]].
* [[Film/OfficeSpace Die, motherfucker, die, motherfucker, die!]] It works a little better here because the entire movie is set to hip-hop. Which is hilarious because it's about weedy white (and one Indian) office workers.
* The ''Hard Knock Life'' scene from the 3rd ''Film/AustinPowers'' movie. Which also happened to be a parody of a rap by Music/JayZ that sampled the soundtrack from ''Film/{{Annie|1982}}''.
* The infamous "Ninja Rap" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGLlUNaJcmc sequence]] in ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIITheSecretOfTheOoze''. Perpetrated by the one and only Music/VanillaIce.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', with [[http://homestuck.bandcamp.com/track/gamebro-original-1990-mix GameBro]], which doesn't seem to have any specific character performing it, but is a rap about an obscure plot element that resurfaces a negligible amount of times in the massive comic.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''WebVideo/CommentaryTheMusical'', "Neil's Turn": in the middle of a song he suddenly starts rapping.
-->''I'll charm the chicks (Are those real? Ha!)\\
Do magic tricks (Was it the three of spades? Ho!)\\
Lay down some tap\\
And I can rap\\
My name is Neil and I'm here to say, [random rapping noises]\\
No I can't rap\\
That was painful...''

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':
** The show gives us this little gem.
--->'''Cartman''': Well I'm a badass cowboy living in the cowboy days. A wiki wiki scratch yo yo jiggy jiggy. [[Film/WildWildWest Me and Artemis Clyde frog from the big metal spider]]. A wiki wiki what.
