Go Ninja Go! Listen to the new rap song from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Jul. 22, 2014by:

Back in 1991, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES II: THE SECRET OF THE OOZE opened in theaters and featured the up and coming rapper Vanilla Ice performing the song "Ninja Rap". While Vanilla Ice may no longer be a top musician, his contribution to the franchise is still a pop culture favorite. So, with Jonathan Liebesman and Michael Bay's reboot of the series coming, it was time for a new rap song to highlight the film.

The musical landscape is very different now than it was in 1991, but rap is still a very popular genre. So, why not recruit some big names like Wiz Khalifa to perform? Performed alongside Juicy J, Ty Dolla $ign, Kill The Noise, and Madsonik, "Shell Shocked" is looking to be a big hit with audiences and fans of the movie. Personally, I only recognized Wiz Khalifa out of that group, but with a catchy chorus that goes "Knock, knock, you about to get shell shocked", this could be the next "Go, ninja, go!"

Michael Bay films often feature at least one big tune going back to Aerosmith in ARMAGEDDON and even Imagine Dragons in this year's TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION. I doubt this song will make or break your decision to see the movie, but it certainly shows that at least music is still a factor in the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES series.

Take a listen to the track below. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES hits theaters on August 8th.

The Vanilla Ice song from TMNT 2 was complete shit made because he was popular at the time. This is fitting because it has the popular Michael Bay influenced sound of the times. Ninja Rap was shit, as is this. Whoever the fuck thought that a Michael Bay TMNT was ever going to be anything other than poor CGI, bad hip hop and explosions are fucking retards.

After a few listens...

At first play, I didn't really care for it at all, but just like the new "look" of the turtles, it's kinda growing on me!

And here I thought the Coming out of Their Shells tour was the worst music-related piece of Turtles paraphernalia that could ever exist.

Sadly we now live in times when a Ninja Turtles rap, something that would have been fun and innocent 20 years ago, now has to be dark and joyless.

They should've gone with the obvious heir apparent to Robert "Vanilla 'Word To Ya Motha/HGTV Host' Ice Van Winkle- Justin Bieber. I'm just sayin'

What A Mess!

It sounds like they recorded this on a laptop. Of course they did, anyone in their right mind wouldn't put them in a studio with these lyrics.

Fuck that noise!

Wtf, I turned it off after 30 seconds. That was just the worst thing ever. I liked Vanilla Ice's rap because it was a product of its times. It was nowhere near being good, but you could still catch yourself humming it. Even to this day the Ninja Rap is a staple of pop culture.

This Whiz the sellout Kalifa guy (trying to put his name on everything from MK to TMNT) just sucks. Everyone associated with this, from to rappers to the idiots who greenlit it, need to suffer a serious tragedy in the

Bring back Partners in Kryme and re-record T.U.R.T.L.E. Power. Just fix that one line that calls Raphael the leader and we're all good.
