Jacques: Hip-Hop's love for Dragon Ball is no secret.
The long-running manga and anime was originally created in 1984 by Japanese artist Akira Toriyama,
and burst onto American screens in the late 90s with its successor 'Dragon Ball Z'
on Cartoon Network's afternoon programming block, Toonami.
Jacques: Many of today's rappers grew up watching the show
and Adult Swim creative director Jason DeMarco said
said that 'D-B-Z' is a quote, "empowerment fantasy" and that many young minorities told him
they loved the show, saying quote:
"I get why that same kid would become a rapper, and then rap about wanting to be like
Goku because you take your heroes where you can get them."
There are thousands of hip-hop lyrics that reference Dragon Ball's characters
and their strengths, weaknesses, appearances and personalities.
Here are a few.
Jacques: 'Dragon Ball''s main protagonist, Goku, is a happy-go-lucky, kind-hearted alien
called a Saiyan.
He's a defender of Earth and arguably the universe's top fighter.
Jacques: Rappers invoke Goku to indicate strength, whether it's bravado, violence or good drugs.
Jacques: Goku's fellow Saiyan, Vegeta, is self-absorbed, arrogant and ruthless.
Jacques: Vegeta and Goku go from rivals to allies and many of his mentions deal with
his superiority complex and cut-throat nature.
Jacques: One of 'Dragon Ball''s biggest themes is the Super Saiyan transformation.
Now, when Saiyans undergo extreme duress they turn into powerful beings characterized
by yellow hair and a glowing golden aura.
MCs sometimes use this as a way to demonstrate lyrical prowess.
Jacques: Goku first goes Super Saiyan after seeing his best friend Krillin get killed by Frieza.
Jacques: Although he is one of the strongest humans on Earth, he's pretty weak compared
to the regular alien adversaries.
Now rappers are quick to highlight this and poke fun at his massive head.
Jacques: Frieza is one the show's most iconic villains.
He's the destroyer of the Saiyan world, Planet Vegeta.
MCs use him as a personification of evil, a frigid play on words and even jewelry.
Jacques: Piccolo is the spawn of King Piccolo, one of the earliest
villains on the show but grows into one of Goku's best friends.
His green color and purple blood appear often in rap lyrics.
Jacques: Gohan is Goku's half-human half-Saiyan son whose had latent power
since he was a child.
Jacques: Artists use him for strength in the same vein as his father, occasionally pointing
out his inherent strength.
Jacques: Buu is one of the anime's most dangerous villains.
He has many transformations but
his consistent pink color is something artist's love to reference.
Jacques: I'm Jacques Morel with Genius News, bringing you the meaning and the knowledge behind the music.
Peace!
