As you might’ve noticed, we seriously dig Richie Branson’s flavor of nerdcore. He’s the dude who did a whole EP about GUNDAM and, now , he’s turned anime rapping into a weekly endeavor with Otaku Tuesdays. Today, he’s paying tribute to INITIAL D (that long and voluminous drift-racing love letter) with a track entitled “Tofu Delivery.” Last Tuesday, he gave COWBOY BEBOP’s Spike Spiegel and his crew their due with “Space Cowboy Serenade.”
(I’ve got to say, every time I heard the sax in “the Real Folk Blues” play, I always thought it was ripe for sampling. Good to see that thought become reality.)
So what anime’s getting the Richie B. treatment next Tuesday? Well, that might actually be up to you.
Following my humble suggestion, the man’s taking requests. Have you always wanted to hear a rap about EVA? Maybe FIST OF THE NORTH STAR? DBZ? VOLTRON? SAMURAI CHAMPLOO? LUPIN III? Or perhaps something a little more obscure? The avenue’s straight and open for you to put your kicks on and hop along to tell Mr. Branson what you want to hear. Take advantage of it!
