Rap (or Improvising a Rap, as it was called on the Radio programme), is a game played during the first three British series, as well as the radio show. Unlike every other musical game in the series, Rap's music was prerecorded, as opposed to being provided by a musician.
During the radio show, and on one occassion on the television programme, each performer had to sing two verses - after the first four songs ends, the lineup starts over.
Stephen Fry occassionally performed the final verses, and had a tendency for speak-singing. The closest thing to an exception to this is when he poked fun of Enn Reitel's Sheep Shearing verse before he started his own. ("Mary had a little lamb. No, no...) Another notable Rap was about Banking. Tony Slattery sang about finding his bankteller so attractive it gave him an erection. Mike McShane responded by saying Tony had "the morals of a German shepard", before singing his own song about sperm banks.
- Josie Lawrence, Mike McShane, Greg Proops, and Ryan Stiles are the only performers to sing in every four-player verse game: Rap, March, Gospel, and Hoedown.
- Since they are still part of the programme to this day, Ryan and Greg have also played a majority of the other spinoffs to this style game, such as Scene to Rap and Irish Drinking Song.
- Conversely, Stephen Fry, Rory Bremner, and George McGrath are the only performers to play Rap and Hoedown, but not March or Gospel.
- George McGrath has an interesting case here, as his only Rap was performed in the same recording as his only Hoedown.
