You should definitely just refer to an artist (or anyone, actually) by the name they want to be called. No modifications needed.
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle like a bowl of soup
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle like a rolling hoop
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle like a ton of lead
Wiggle - you can raise the dead

For fans of old school, Neneh Cherry often calls this out as an influence.

This is good!! Sounds like an early example of conscious hip hop, which is a fave sub genre of mine.

That whole scene, label and early recordings is fascinating. As is Bill Curtis talking about the 'first' rap recording...

Lil Yachty just dropped Let's Start Here which is so dripping with weird psychedelia/prog rock noise that Sherman Hemsley may rise from the dead to have a listen.

Another maybe lesser known classic. Blackalicious works through the alphabet with the beat slowly increasing throughout. It's 2 minutes, but a lot of fun. Lyric video is helpful too.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I didn't even get to the song titles:
01 I Swear, I Really Wanted to Make a “Rap” Album but This Is Literally the Way the Wind Blew Me This Time
02 The Slang Word P(*)ssy Rolls Off the Tongue With Far Better Ease Than the Proper Word Vagina . Do You Agree?
03 That Night in Hawaii When I Turned Into a Panther and Started Making These Low Register Purring Tones That I Couldn’t Control ... Sh¥t Was Wild
04 BuyPoloDisorder’s Daughter Wears a 3000® Button Down Embroidered
05 Ninety Three ’Til Infinity And Beyoncé
06 Ghandi, Dalai Lama, Your Lord & Savior J.C. / Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and John Wayne Gacy
07 Ants to You, Gods to Who ?
08 Dreams Once Buried Beneath the Dungeon Floor Slowly Sprout Into Undying Gardens
