This article is about the hip hop number. For the original rock 'n' roll song, see The Rum Tum Tugger (Rock song).

The Rum Tum Tugger is a hip hop number about the Rum Tum Tugger and his disobliging ways. In 2014, it replaced the original rock 'n' roll version of the song, which Andrew Lloyd Webber called "boring and outdated".

It is adapted from the original song, but has significant lyric changes, a rap section and an additional dance break. Elements of the original music remain with a heavy squared beat underscoring the lyrics. It ends with Tugger naming himself the "Jelli-coolest Cat".
