Do groups that have a rapper of their own count?
Does this Youtube video count? The man in the vest was just walking by and was invited to join in.
While I can't help you there, this forum topic may be of help. Remember that a mere link won't make a good example - you need to write it out explaining how it fits the trope.
Such songs are often bowdlerized on the radio, when the entire rap verse is deleted even if it contains nothing questionable, as if the musical concept itself is offensive.
Well, not offensive, but...some people find this trope annoying and unnecessary. I giggled at that part, admittedly.
Simplest explanation is that when radio versions get edited down for time, the easiest thing to do is edit out the Big-Lipped Alligator Moment that is A Wild Rapper Appears!.
I have removed the entire eurodance section. As explained in the edit, in the 90's it was the established most standard for the female artist to sing the chorus and for the male to rap. Therefore it's hardly any more "wild" than a rapper rapping in a rap song.
If this removed section needs to be restored in some form, here it is:
"A similar practice existed in the early 1940s (which could be called A Wild Texan Appears), where a guy with a southern accent suddenly started talking over the music without warning."
I would like to see an example of this.
Would Gorillaz' "Dirty Harry" be an example? They're sort of hip-hop, so it isn't quite an example, but the rap in "Dirty Harry" does come out of nowhere after a couple of choruses of children's choir and synth melody.
Possibly changing the page quote to one that I think explains the trope AND it's reasoning in one, feedback?
And now the token rap verse that doesn't make any sense But helps to get a small percentage of the urban music market Pop Song - Jon Lajoie
Do it! It's a perfect quote from a hilarious song.
Would Ol' Dirty Bastard's appearance on Mariah Carey's "Fantasy" count, even though it's a different version than the "radio edit" song?
What game's the Trope Namer? Pokemon?

How well does it match the trope?
