Guy turns Dr. Seuss books into awesome rap songs with superhuman accuracy

His "Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?" has over 36 million views. It's genuinely that impressive.

Jordan Simons' Dr. Seuss raps are next level.

Dr. Seuss' early books predate rap music by more than three decades, but anyone who has read the rhythmic "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" or the tongue-twisting "Fox in Socks"—or any of Seuss's delightful rhymes, really—can instantly see the connection between the two.

In fact, my daughter was just asking me the other day if anyone had made Dr. Seuss books into rap songs, and I told her about a man I wrote about a few years ago, Wes Tank, who went viral for putting Dr. Seuss rhymes to smooth Dr. Dre beats.

But now there's a new Seuss rapper who goes in a slightly different direction than Tank, hearkening to the fast rap stylings of Eminem and Busta Rhymes. Jordan Simons has garnered a following of 23 million TikTok users, simply by rapping Dr. Seuss books.

Well, "simply" is a bit of an understatement.
