Three Parks & Rec-inspired rap songs you didn't know you wanted so badly until now

The universe of Parks & Recreation has been rightfully compared to that of The Simpsons—even its most minor characters and plotlines are rife with neverending silliness. And if Glee has taught me anything (it really hasn't), it's that sometimes joy cannot be adequately expressed through mere words, only through song. Enter Adam Warrock, a Parks & Rec fan who self-produced a three-track rap EP with songs about his favorite aspects of the show. Fittingly, Entertainment 720 and Ron Swanson are celebrated with badass lyrics and phat beatz—technically speaking—but the real surprise is his ode to Leslie Knope's 2012 city council bid, drawing parallels to Obama and marrying the rhymes perfectly with John Legend's "Number One." His work is evidence that perhaps Mouse Rat should reinvent itself as a hip-hop outfit.

Thanks to Ben Schwartz (aka @rejectedjokes) for the tip.
