There are few games with as many lyrical mentions.

Capcom Games launched its Street Fighter franchise in 1987. The video game spans dozens of individual titles, and hip-hop first name-dropped it as early as 1994. Rap has paid tribute to the series in a variety of ways, including the hip-hop soundtrack for the 1994 Street Fighter live action film. Lyrical mentions often include references to characters and moves in the games.
