Adam WarRock Celebrates His Anniversary With ‘Longshot’ And A Donation Drive

Most of our readers are probably already familiar with Eugene Ahn, AKA Adam WarRock, former co-host of the War Rocket Ajax podcast and occasional ComicsAlliance contributor. Two years ago, Euge quit his career as a lawyer to follow his dream of becoming a full-time rapper, focusing on songs that reflected his interests in comics, TV and video games. Since then, Adam WarRock’s gained critical acclaim for releasing two full-length albums and an EP, touring with top acts such as MC Chris and MC Lars and becoming a one of Wired’s picks for geeks you must follow on Twitter by regularly releasing free music pulsing with pop culture relevance.

To mark the anniversary, he’s holding his annual donation drive, along with a brand new single inspired by everyone’s favorite four-fingered X-Man, Longshot, complete with a cover by Ming Doyle (Mara, Fantastic Four, Marceline and the Scream Queens). Check out the new track after the cut!

The reasoning behind Euge’s tribute to Longshot should be obvious: Walking away from a steady job to pursue a career in rap is a risky proposition even before you add in the fact that he’s rapping about Firefly, Scott Pilgrim or the West Coast Avengers. But in those two years, he’s managed to have a pretty strong success as a nerdcore MC, getting positive reviews in Wired, radio play on WFMU and even playing SXSW. It might’ve been a longshot, but he’s pulled it off.

On the other hand, it might be based on that time he was kidnapped to the Mojoverse. I’m pretty sure we covered that on an early episode of Ajax. Just google “Euge-Babies” and see what happens.

The Donation Drive is going on now, and for any amount you want to throw in, you’re getting a lot in return. Not just the constant stream of tracks that he posts on his blog (currently sitting at 103 single tracks and counting, plus 9 EPs and mixtapes, all completely free to download), but an all-new mixtape (featuring “Longshot” and eleven other tracks), a collection of his singles, a thank-you sketch by Chris Haley, and an autobiographical comic with art by American Splendor‘s Ed Piskor. Any way you slice it, that’s a pretty solid deal.
