Believe it or not, I am the proud owner of multiple concept albums where rappers take on G.I. Joe-related personas and rap about how awesome Cobra Commander, Destro and the Baroness are. Seriously, I think if I get two or three more of these things, it will officially qualify as a subgenre. Cobracore, or maybe Wrist-Missle-Hop.
The latest? A brand new album from Wordburglar, rapping in character as Rap Viper (described as the Commander's chief operative in "indoctrinating the youth with Cobra propaganda") titled Welcome To Cobra Island. What's more, Wordburglar released a pretty awesome fan-film video with the album's lead track, featuring HISS Tanks, Rattlers and even Cobra Commander himself scratching on the ones and twos.

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.

Yesterday at Midtown Comics McDaniels announced the launch of "Darryl Makes Comics," his new comics imprint under which he'll be producing a 48-page graphic novel with contributions from creators Damion Scott, Dexter Vines and Ronald Wimberly.
If you're reading comics news online, chances are pretty good that you have some pretty strong feelings about the X-Men. We know we do. But the question is, are your feelings about the X-Men so strong that you're willing to do an entire ten-song hip hop album dedicated to Marvel's Merry Mutants? Because Adam WarRock's are.

A Very Random Christmas Publisher: Random, a.k.a. Mega Ran Price: Whatever you'd like to pay!
I am a guy who loves Christmas music to the point where I'll occasionally start listening to it a little early -- like, say, March -- but even I get tired of hearing different versions of the same 20 songs every year. That's why I loved A Very Random Christmas, the album where the nerdcore MC who broug
The ties between hip-hop and otaku culture just got tighter. Random (a.k.a. Mega Ran) recently released a new album titled Black Materia that follows the plot of Final Fantasy VII. And, as pointed out by
