That would be Dappy, showing off his hashtag tattoo (hashtat?) in a selfie he recently shared. He picked up the ink to be "trending forever," though nothing Dappy-related has popped up on Twitter's list of hot topics.

The best part? Dappy is best known for his song "No Regrets." We'll see how that turns out.

Seriously, how is it even possible for someone to talk this fast? By his own admission, this video took Mac Lethal 67 takes to make.

Warning: Some language (not like you'd be able to catch it anyway...)

Are you a person who really enjoys rap music but might just enjoy it a little bit more if certain lyrics were a little less angry and misogynistic and a little more forward-thinking and polite? Well, Respectful Rappers has done just that by morphing degrading, negative lyrics into more positive versions.

Looks like Coolio is trading in his Gangsta's Paradise for an electric range. The 90s rapper has put 123 of his songs up for auction on Royalty Exchange to help fund his cookbook series Cooking With Coolio, the first of which was released back in 2009. He also plans to invest in an online cooking series, and if it is anything like his 2008 YouTube project, we can't wait to check it out.

It's not a cakewalk for a dad to rap about how cool he is to his own kids without sounding all too desperate, but somehow, this one cool dad actually pulls it off.

The Huffington Post brings this painfully awkward supercut of politicians talking about "rap music" and a few even reciting the lyrics. Some of the highlights include Utah Senator Orrin Hatch reading the lyrics from "Hits From the Bong" by Cypress Hill, Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman breaking down the semantics of "slapping a h*" and Florida Representative Dean Cannon quoting the song "99 Problems" by Jay-Z.

A recent study conducted by researchers at the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD) sheds a light on what goes on inside of someone's brain while partaking in "spontaneous lyrical improvisation." The scanned image (shown left) compares the results of an A/B test during which subjects were instructed to freestyle (first row) and recite well-rehearsed verses (second row) to an identical 8-bar background track. For the full-length report, read "Neural Correlates of Lyrical Improvisation: An fMRI Study of Freestyle Rap."

83-year-old rapper "Kwayzar" would like everyone to know that he "can still do it."

Sex. That's what he's talking about. Mad skills, pops.

Since Tupac's been getting a second wind in his posthumous hologram career, Mother's Day is a good day, if any, to revisit one of his more sentimental songs, 1995's "Dear Mama," an audio tribute to his mother, former Black Panther, Afeni Shakur. Happy Mother's Day!

Teen rap sensation (using "sensation" rather loosely), Krispy Kreme, made this very DIY video for his track, "The Baddest." With production that rivals Mannie Fresh, the song features quotable lines like "I got more money than Jay-Z, because Jay-Z is lazy." With rap punchlines like that, Krispy Kreme is surely serving up some hurts doughnuts.

Blake Boston, aka "Scumbag Steve," is a case study in embracing unexpected Internet fame. Boston has managed to parlay his notoriety as a meme into a popular Tumblr, and now he's resurrecting his long-dormant hip-hop ambitions with a track about (what else?) Scumbag Steve.

His future plans include releasing a new track every Thursday on his just-launched website, ScumbagThursdays.

Knowing Scumbag Steve, though, he probably won't drop a new song until the 1st of the month (which is also when he plans to hit you back for the 20 bucks you loaned him).

Steve fans can also catch the 'bag himself at this weekend's ROFLCon at MIT.

Texas rapper Adair Lion's new single, "Ben," calls out big-name rappers for dissing homosexuality: "Where you at, Wayne? Where you at, Ye?"

Best line: "To all the little dudes learnin' to mack –- the hottest girls got a gay in their clique, remember that."

The song, which samples the hook off Michael Jackson's 1972 hit of the same name, is part of Lion's upcoming tribute album Michael & Me, which drops June 25, the third anniversary of Jackson's death.
