IMAGE EXPO: New Projects Revealed From Rucka, Simone, Aaron and More
Forget Straight Outta Compton, mc chris’ take on the Joker is Straight Outta Gotham!
The rapping, rhyming mind behind Fette’s Vette and the Friends EP — a whole album dedicated to the allies of the Dark Knight — has released an advance look at Foes, an album inspired by (you guessed it) the villains of the Batman universe, via Soundcloud. Although the recording is decidedly NSFW, Batman fans should definitely give it a listen as it’s a really excellent take on the Clown Prince of Crime that explores his motivations, origins and lifelong battle with Batman.
“I’m going to have a Joker song, which is to me the highlight of my career,” mc chris told CBR in 2013. “I’ve got friends who are telling me that I have to write a Killer Croc song. I don’t know if that’s going to happen, but I’ve got some plans for my personal favorites, like Mr. Freeze. As for the other song ideas, I like Catwoman, I like Scarecrow, but I also like characters like the Librarian and stuff from the TV show like Egghead. There’s stuff I want to do, but I’m not sure if I should do it because people might not remember those guys. It might end up being a full-length album [instead of an EP] because it’s like picking which child, or bad kid, you love the most.”
