We do love us some Harry Potter filk, especially when it’s as fresh and inventive as this. Rap music is tricky stuff, the instrument is really the rapper’s voice and the sounds and rhythms come mainly from that. The rest of the musical content is actually just accompaniment to the human voice. Beyond that, the lyrics must say something with which the listener can strongly identify – they have to make sense in the listener’s context, and still follow all the other usual conventions. Writing good rap is really really hard. Performing it is even harder.

Add Harry Potter into the mix, and you’ve got a golden moment.

Pause the Krypton Radio audio stream using the controller in the upper right before you watch this.

Harry Potter takes the mic and drops a magical beat!

Lyrics

Holla – the name is Harry Potter
So frosty in my robes I’m a straight Yule Baller
Got Galleons galore so I can do what I wanna
Not always what I outta, never failin’ what I gotta

Do.

Once I lived under the stairs
And now this people stop and stare
At a lightning bolt beneath my hair
You all KNOW who put it there

As a child ordinary
But these days I’m legendary
Cuz a giant broke a door to tell me
“Yer a wizard, Harry.”

Cruisin’ on my Nimbus
Turning back my minutes
Managing my mischief
And I’m charming all the witches –

Catching them like snitches,
Yeah you KNOW I gotta knack
Like Myrtle make you moan so loud
They’ll put ya in the Shrieking Shack

Relax with my dogs in Hogsmeade
Butterbeer and Bertie Bots
What MORE COULD WE NEED?

It’s me, or Voldy
That was what was prophesied
But I’m the boy who lived
So get a grip
Victory is guaranteed.

Double, double, toil and trouble
Fire it burns and cauldrons they bubble
Casting spells over the crowd, they cannot even move a muscle
I’m the greatest wizard of my age, and you you’re just a Muggle

Death defyin’ like Houdini
Slytherin’ like Nagini
Drinkin’ magical martini’s
Under my cloak so they can’t see me

Rooms hide what’s required
Mirrors reflect true desire
Goblets filled but not with wine
With champion’s fire

Seek the gold, reach for the sky
On broomsticks, and griffons, and cars we fly
Death Eaters they run straight terrified
Cuz when I see em:
“STUPEFY!”

You stupefied, cuz I’m SUPER fly
And from time to time I get super high
Fly so high on my broomstick
Starin’ down a basilisk
Tellin’ scary fire-breathing beasties to just

Bring it

On. I swish and I flick
Stand tall like Flitwick,
Ghostin’ so good I feel like Nearly Headless Nick

Goobledegook and goblins
And soon my scar is throbbin
I got bigger problems
And no one else can solve them

Like Werewolves, Dementors, Evil Wizards too
But Dumbledore’s army, they my Hogwarts crew
Together there is nothing that we can-not do
Like help the elves free themselves
S – P – E – double –

YOU cannot keep up, cannot compete for my House Cup
My mind’s been thunderstruck, so they treat me like a nut

Namely Trelawney and crazy,Firenze
They gaze at stars and crystal balls,
I wonder what they see!

Cuz I don’t know about you, but it sure ain’t clear to me
How they see I’ll be the Grim’s Victim in empty cups of tea

Don’t worry!
I rep the Order of the Phoenix
Fret not, don’t be distraught
Cuz I got the luck of Felix

Double, double, toil and trouble
Fire it burns and cauldrons they bubble
Casting spells over the crowd, they cannot even move a muscle
I’m the greatest wizard of my age, and you, you’re just a muggle

Like Crucio – I’ll bring the pain
Imperio – you’ll sing my name
I have nothing left to lose and everything to gain

Gonna take down Voldemort,
Avenge my main man Dumbledore
Hold the sword of Gryffindor
Now lemme hear ya ROAR!
