Yooka-Laylee includes its own DK Rap

It's finally here.

Yooka-Laylee will include its own version of the DK Rap - the infamous musical number from Donkey Kong 64 - which was revealed live on stage today at EGX Rezzed.

The upcoming platformer - due to launch in less than a fortnight - is of course made by many of the talent behind Rare classics like Donkey Kong 64 and Banjo-Kazooie.

Former Rare composer Grant Kirkhope, in particular, has worked extensively on Yooka-Laylee. The DK Rap was composed by Kirkhope nearly 20 years ago. Almost two decades later, Kirkhope has composed the Yooka-Laylee Rap.

Here it is, direct from Playtonic's Rezzed session today:

PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Banjo-Kazooie launch on 11th April, with a Nintendo Switch version also in the works.
