Album: Grandpa Funnybook’s Mix-Tapingly Arranged Rapping Song Album 2: Dyadic Dynamite!
Grandpa Funnybook’s Mix-Tapingly Arranged Rapping Song Album 2: Dyadic Dynamite returns to the fun formula of last year’s successful first volume of the series, a mixtape of hip hop compiled to please the nerdy crowds at Fan Expo in order to commemorate the first appearance of Hand’Solo Records at the Toronto sci-fi/comic book convention. Once again returning to Fan Expo, Hand’Solo Records celebrates with volume 2, spearheaded by Wordburglar and hosted by Grandpa Funnybook, Burg’s hilarious homage to Marvel mastermind Stan Lee. Dyadic Dynamite features banging boom bap beats and witty lyrics about cartoons, comics, Klingons, time machines,Transformers, zombies and Zentraedi, alongside plenty of pop-culture braggadocio. As with all sequels, volume 2 notches up the action with an increased number of new songs and remixes, featuring Wordburglar and some his Backburner brethren (More Or Les, Ghettosocks, Jesse Dangerously, Swamp Thing, Fresh Kils and Frank Deluxe), nerdcore stalwarts such as Beefy, Death*Star and Garthim-Master, and hip hop heads like CasUno, Touch and El Da Sensei, emcees who only occasionally speak geek. Inspired by Giant Size X-Men #1, the cover art was supplied by Kody Peters, again, with the mix handled this time by Peter Project (Sound Battle Royale 2010 winner).
The limited edition CD was released first at Fan Expo on the weekend of August 23-26, although all remaining hardcopies are now available for only $5 alongside the FREE DOWNLOAD of the digital album found on Bandcamp.Album: Grandpa Funnybook’s Mix-Tapingly Arranged Rapping Song Album 2: Dyadic Dynamite!,
