Nintendo fans have always found unique ways of showing off their passion for the company’s creations, whether it’s in art, film or even music. Donald Glover, known as Childish Gambino in his rap career, has long been known as a fan of gaming, and his latest track takes his passion to a whole new level by sampling Aquatic Ambiance, one of the most famous tracks from Donkey Kong Country! We’ve embedded “Eat Your Vegetables” below but, as a head’s up, the audio does contain explicit content and themes!

This is not actually the first Nintendo reference in Childish Gambino’s music. Super Smash Bros. has also gotten a shout out in the Gambino track “Heartbeat.” Interestingly enough, Ambiance’s original composer seems to be a fan! David Wise gave his seal of approval on Twitter, seemingly flattered over the fact that his creation remains relevant 24 years after its initial release. As a massive fan of Aquatic Ambiance myself, I certainly think this is very cool, myself!

What do you think of Childish Gambino’s latest? Let us know in the comments below!
