The Rebels can really break it down. 

In the latest installment of the popular YouTube series Bad Lip Reading, the Hoth battle from Empire Strikes Back turns into something of a rap music video — and it's amazing. 

As soon as Dak Ralter turns on the beat, Luke Skywalker gets into "Hostiles on the Hill."

The video, a little longer than four minutes, was posted Tuesday and already has nearly 800,000 views. 

The hook is great and the lyrics are entertaining, especially when Wedge Antilles drops in. Not wanting to ruin the experience, his actual line of "Wow! That got him!" is replaced with something hilarious. 

This is hardly the first time Bad Lip Reading has tackled Star Wars. One of the channel's most popular videos, a bad lip reading of The Force Awakens, even had Mark Hamill as a guest star doing a spot-on impression of Harrison Ford. 

That video currently has more than 8.7 million views. 

The latest installment of the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi, opened last weekend to near-box office record numbers. 

Check out Luke and company doing their thing in "Hostiles on the Hill" below.
