Drake may have scorched Meek Mill, but is he able to take on Bowser?

Putting aside Aubrey Graham’s actual video game skills, his tracks do mysteriously mashup fantastically well with several classic Nintendo 64 games. Tumblr user Seth Everman uncovered just how fire “Hotline Bling” becomes when paired with the soundtracks from Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, and Mario Kart.

It’s crazy how well an ocarina and Mario’s voice complement the rapper’s track. Can’t wait to hear this remix in the club.
