PlayStation All-Stars Bio: PaRappa the Rapper

Welcome to today’s PS All-Stars Battle Royale character bio, presented by the Daily Reaction team of Seb and Dan. This time we look at everyone’s favorite paper-thin rapping dog, PaRappa the Rapper, his life story, games, move list and more.

Name: PaRappa the Rapper

Origin: PaRappa has had quite a varied life, so we asked him to tell us about it:

Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped turned upside down and I’d like to take a minute so just sit right there and I’ll tell you all about how I came to sing for a girl called Sunny Funny and her beautiful hair.

In west Japan born and raised is where I spent most of my days, chilling out, singing, relaxing and growing my mojo, chopping some karate outside of the dojo, when Joe Chin was up to no good and started making trouble in my neighborhood. I got in one little crash and ruined my dad’s car, and he said “you’re working till you pay it off, at a flea market or a bar.”

I rapped for a cab and when it came, the license plate said “Awful” with a dice in the mirror. If anything, I can say that this cab was dumb, but I thought naw forget it, “yo homes to Club Fun”.

I pulled up to the Club, grabbed my things and I yelled to cab “yo homes smell ya later”. I looked at my stage, I was finally there to sing to my love Sunny Funny and her beautiful hair.
