Barney The Dinosaur Raps Along To Biggie In Glorious Mashup Video

He loves it when you call him Big Poppa.

Barney the Dinosaur just loves that East Coast hip-hop beat.

The friendly purple T-Rex raps along to Notorious B.I.G.'s "Big Poppa" in a superb new mashup video that's going viral.

His protoceratops pal, BJ, is tasked with rapping Diddy's parts.

Adam Schleichkorn -- whose crafty slicing and dicing of clips from the kids TV show has previously seen Barney busting lyrics to Junior M.A.F.I.A. and Biggie's "Get Money" -- is behind the clip.

"This song has been on my list for a long time, and I just feel like Barney as Biggie totally fits," he wrote on his YouTube channel, isthishowyougoviral.

"Not only is this one of the best rap songs of all time, but it comes from the best rap album of all time," he added. "In my opinion, most new hip hop is garbage, and I honestly think it's Biggie's fault for setting the bar too damn high."

See how it compares to the original music video here:

Schleichkorn's videos have garnered more than 10 million total views since he launched his channel in 2012. His other gems include The Muppets performing the Beastie Boys classic "So What'cha Want."

In his most popular video, the cast of "Sesame Street" seems to sing along to Bone Thugs-n-Harmony's "Tha Crossroads."
