Kick off the month of May with today's links.
Your favorite nerdcore rapper is at it again. Adam WarRock, a.k.a. Eugene Ahn, is putting his deft blend of lyrical skill and comic knowledge into a brand new album, titled The Middle Of Nowhere. We've written in the past about the connections between hip hop and comics, and Adam WarRock is at the forefront of the next wave of emcees to hone their craft while inspired by the comics and characters they love. Simply put, WarRock is dope, and he's just debuted the video for his first single off the album, titled "B.S.F.X." (Batman Sound Effects). You can check out the video, featuring WarRock flanked by ComicsAlliance's own superhero sartorialist Betty Felon and fellow cosplayer AK Wood, below.
While singer Robin Thicke set his pop hit to a highly dubious music video, sued the family of his stated inspiration Marvin Gaye for agreeing that it does indeed sound like Marvin Gaye, declared it a "feminist movement within itself" and continues to do god knows what else to crush the stupid thing into the ground, nerdcore musician Adam WarRock teamed up with cartoonist (and frequent ComicsAlliance contributor) Chris Haley to rescue "Blurred Lines" from Thicke's icky grasp and redeem it as a truly affectionate tribute to the world of convention cosplay. Enjoy "Nerrd Lines."
