8 Rap Lyrics Dedicated To Spongebob Squarepants
Stephen Hillenburg would be proud.
Nickelodeon's animated series, Spongebob Squarepants left its mark on kids television, bringing both adults and children together for 30-minutes of underwater bonding. Marking nearly 20 years on television the show’s creative influence has meshed into New York’s Broadway scene, major motion pictures, and the hip-hop community. Unfortunately, the cartoon’s creator, Stephen Hillenburg passed away from complications from Lou Gerig’s disease (Nov. 26).
Starting the series in 1999, Hillenburg produced a show that has made quite the impression, especially in hip-hop. Inspiring the likes of trap remixes, diss tracks, and samples, artists like Lil Pump, Wu-Tang Clan and Migos have used samples from the kid’s show to play up the dimensions of his music. Beyond inspiration, the shows original score of catchy songs about ripped pants and campfires made the show something special.
Saddened by the passing, Nickelodeon penned a sweet farewell to their longtime business partner.
