The Shadowrunners – "Countdown (To Apocalypse)"
Mega Man anyone? Antwon affiliates and Nature Boys originators The Shadowrunners definitely sampled an arcade game for this track, it’s just not clear which one. “Countdown (To Apocalypse)” sounds like just that, as rapper Himself the Majestic absorbs nihilism while calmly looking at his surroundings burn to the ground. Then the psychedelic track abruptly ends, like how Sonic suddenly dies when he lands on those spikes one too many times.
