Added DiffLines:

** In his MMLP2 track "Stronger than I Was" about his fractious and sometimes abusive relationships, he sings for the first 2 verses and chorus, before reverting to his standard rap for the middle 8, although returning to singing at its end.


Added DiffLines:

*Hungary in Eurovision 2017 was the most extreme. A religious romany folk ballad which has a shock 40-second rap freestyle in the middle 8 from its singer Jozsef Papai. He placed 8th, but 2 years later, when he returned but didnt rap, he didnt qualify.


* The first boss theme for ''VideoGame/{{Einhander}}'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjLSrlCYeFg surprisingly an]] EarWorm. This rap was justified by being a sample from a then-famous disc, [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLB68B32E897CC194C Masterbits Climax 9 - RAPsody (Vocals II)]].

* Speaking of Heavy D., His Royal Heaviness also interrupts a remix version of Michael's sister Music/JanetJackson 's song "Alright" to lay down a few lines as well.

* Speaking of Heavy D., His Royal Heaviness also interrupts a remix version of Michael's sister Music/JanetJackson 's song "Alright" to lay down a few lines as well. Heavy D was one of the go-to rappers for this trope in general, appearing on hits by Music/{{Guy}}, [=LeVert=] & others.


Added DiffLines:

* Being NewJackSwing artists, Music/{{Guy}} utilizing this trope isn't surpising, with the raps provided by either "sister" group Wreckx-N-Effect, or Music/HeavyD.


* Ludacris, Music/TPain, Flo Rida, Music/{{Pitbull}} and Music/LilWayne frequently enter this as they [[WolverinePublicity work in basically everything]] (the first is one of those who worked with Bieber).

** This is practically Music/{{Pitbull}}'s Modus Operandi. Starting with Usher's "DJ Got Us Falling In Love" from 2010, there have been more songs that feature him as this trope than there are with him as the main singer (and even for those, he nearly always has someone else filling in for this trope's role, though usually by singing and not rapping.)

* Who could forget the rapping dog in ''WesternAnimation/TitanicTheLegendGoesOn''?

* Who could forget the rapping dog in ''WesternAnimation/TitanicTheLegendGoesOn''?''WesternAnimation/TitanicTheLegendGoesOn''? The moment appears out of nowhere without any foreshadowing and is never mentioned again.



* Same with Music/ThousandFootKrutch, enough that they can be considered RapRock. Their lead singer, Trevor [=McNevan,=] also inverts this in his relationship with Christian rapper Manafest. [=McNevan=] discovered Manafest and helped promote him as an artist, and as such he makes a guest appearance at least once on most of Manafest's albums. It has yet to be reciprocated, though, most likely due to the aforementioned RapRock.

* Music/TheWeeknd's song "The Hills" received an official remix featuring Music/{{Eminem}}, which replaces the two original verses with two guest rap verses. It was actually well-received.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/ChrisBrown: "Yo (Excuse Me Miss)" suddenly ends on Chris rapping. This section often gets cut off on radios.


* Exaggerated in the ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Spa Day", which has a song with relaxing, lounge music, except for a completely out-of-the-blue rap tune interrupting it in the middle - the catch being that the rap section made up the majority of the song.

** "A Real Boy" is similar, starting off as a slow and soulful number, but then takes a hard left turn into rap for the remainder of the song.
** Played straight in ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerbStarWars'', where Ferb is the wild rapper who appears in his brother's calypso/pop ballad about Tatooine.
* In the season two premiere of ''WesternAnimation/MiloMurphysLaw'', Orton Mahlson and Doofenshmirtz sing "Pressure", as they contemplate the big shoes that the time-travelers claim they will fill someday. About midway through, it turns into a rap. Then Doofenshmirtz loses his train of thought, and it goes back to as it was.


* A remixed version of the ''Series/CasoCerrado'' DoItYourselfThemeTune contains a rap section.

* The official Red Pill Remix of "Hero" by Superchick adds an intense rap verse before the last chorus, which the song didn't originally have.

* Inverted with the titular song of the album ''Music/PokemonChristmasBash''. It's predominantly rapping but features a sung chorus.


* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgSwD4j8v1c Party of Three]] by the band {{NinjaSexParty}} features a subversion of this trope when Arin "Egoraptor" Hanson starts rapping at a pool party... Only to come back moments later with the lead singer, Danny "Sexbang" Avidan rapping himself.

* The album version of ''{{VisualNovel/Kanon}} (2006)'''s ending theme has a random and [[GratuitousEnglish incomprehensible]] rap segment. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_pQMSWY7o0&t=04m30s No, really.]] What's more, it was prominently featured in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZ-TG5I8XE4#t=1m43s the show's trailer]]

* The ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' tie-in song "Pokémon Go!" (completely unrelated to the mobile game) was written to celebrate its 10th anniversary, and contains a sudden rap bridge in the middle. Interestingly, the ninth season (Battle Frontier) uses the rap portion as its ending theme without any hint of the rest of the song.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/DevilmanCrybaby'' features Wam and his gang breaking into freestyle rap approximately OncePerEpisode, singing about recent goings-on related to the show's plot.


* The cartoon themed group ''{{Music/Gorillaz}}'' is an interesting case. Their first hit single - called "Clint Eastwood" - featured Del The Funky Homosapien as the rapper. From there on, quite a bit of their singles have been examples of this, though most of their less popupar songs are rap-free, with an occasional guest singer. This trope became a point of contention among fans when Humanz released, being so chock full of guest rappers you'd be lucky to pick a random song off the album that had so much as a single word from 2D, which led them to pointedly avert this trope on Sleeping Powder, a lone single that in story was made exclusively by 2D.
