Mega Ran Raps The Joker’s Origin From ‘The Killing Joke’ To The Beat Of The NES ‘Batman’ Game
If you’ve been paying attention to the Comics Controversy Meter over the past few weeks (a scientific system that measures outrage in milihudsons), you may recall that Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s The Killing Joke has been the topic of a whole lot of debate lately. People have raised questions about authorial intent, ambiguity, interpretation, continuity and a whole lot of other stuff, but I think the one thing we can agree on is that the story lends itself pretty well to the world of hip-hop.
Okay, I’ll admit it: We did not actually know that before today. Thankfully, CA favorite Mega Ran is here to show us with “One Bad Day,” where he raps the Joker’s origin story over a beat sampling the NES Batman game. Check it out below!
Unfortunately for the debate, Ran focuses on the origin rather than the ending. It’s a shame, too, because I was hoping that he’d rhyme “ambiguous ending” with “continuity bending.”
