Rappin' Muppet Puppets

We're loving this most recent addition to the annals of dubbed over muppet hip-hop that's been circulating the web for the past week. In this clip, the likes of Grover, Oscar the Grouch and The Cookie Monster take on the 1994 Beastie Boys hit, Sure Shot, the opening track off of 1994's Ill Communication. There's nothing like watching your early childhood and teenage memories mesh together in a mash-up, and Oscar the Grouch is perfectly cast as the raspy voiced MCA.

And in case you like your hip-hop with more cussing, past great muppet dub overs include Kanye West's 2010 hit Monster, featuring Miss Piggy as Nicki Minaj. WARNING: Contains Explicit Lyrics.

Then there's M.O.P.'s 2000 anthem, Ante Up, where Bert and Ernie cast aside their family friendly personas and throw down. WARNING: Contains Explicit Lyrics.
