This isn’€™t really a space for vulgar language, so we’€™ll just have to paraphrase El-P’€™s Twitter account and say that the hip hop artist/producer showed his age (41) and made fun of Pokemon Go this weekend.

As someone who had the Pokemon Game Boy game (Red all the way) but got out of there before the trading cards became a thing, I can safely say I never understood Pokemon and 100 percent did it because other people were. This is interesting because as an elementary school kid I had the guts to tell my friends I wasn’€™t interested in wrestling, yet when it came to silly little animals/monsters(?) in middle school, I kept my mouth shut and went along with it.

I’€™ve got no problem with people making fun of Pokemon. It’€™s really, really silly stuff, but I’€™m happy for the people who are having a blast with this new game, which may or may not end up getting a lot of people my age (28) killed.

Anyway, El-P made some jokes about it and because probably 75 percent of Run The Jewels fans are in their 20s and 30s, a lot of Pokemon apologists freaked out on him.

To calm things down, El-P dropped a freestyle in which he pronounced “Pokemon” the way my dad did every time he told me to stop playing the game when I was a kid.

Pokemon rappin

A video posted by thereallyrealelp (@thereallyrealelp) on

The lyrics, which have yet to make an appearance on Genius:

Pokie man rap, Pokie man rappin’€™
This is the Pokie man rap
I like Pokie man; you like the Pokie man
Rap about Pokeman ‘€˜cause we like it
We all are a community
We are a community that likes the Pokeman and I’€™m just glad that I’€™m one of you
Eh

Because El-P is super interactive on social media, he started a contest for his followers to send in remixes. Perhaps not surprisingly given Run the Jewels’€™ obsessive fanbase, they came in heavily.

Honestly, I wasn’t going to care or pay attention to any of the Pokemon Go stuff. I still definitely won’t download the game, but I’m going to watch this remix contest like a hawk. I’ll also probably buy whatever shirt RTJ inevitably makes out of this.

Christian sets a fan straight who is rooting for the Sox to lose and Farrell to be fired after a hard fought win. The Sox also have some key injuries in the game that Christian talks about.
