Adam WarRock, the Internet’s foremost comic book rapper, has released his first official full-length album since his debut in 2010. You Dare Call That Thing Human?!? is the outcome of endless touring and performing over a three month long period. This is his second full-length album, in addition to the singles and mixtapes he has released. Only a little over a year ago he was working full-time as a lawyer and making music on the side. Now he has fully embraced his love of hip hop and comic books to work full time as an independent musician.
From the press release:
Whether he was being cited by Nathan Fillion for his Firefly-inspired Browncoats Mixtape, receiving approval from the cast for his TV-themed Parks & Rec EP, or opening for nerd music acts like mc chris, MC Lars, and MC Frontalot across the country, Adam WarRock has established himself as a name to watch for in the nerd and geek music scene. This new album seeks to cement his claim as one of the premier acts in nerdcore and indie hip hop.
You Dare Call That Thing Human?!? features production by Vince Vandal, artwork by Mitch Gerads (The Activity, ComicTwart), and an introduction written by Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo, Avengers & The Infinity Gauntlet). The album features appearances by heralded nerdcore and indie acts MC Lars, Doctor Awkward, Dual Core, Beefy, and more, as well as comedian Baron Vaughn (USA’s Fairly Legal, Black Dynamite).
The 15-track album is available in disc format, or directly from the artist at adamwarrock.com as well as all digital download outlets (iTunes, AmazonMP3, eMusic).
Note: The album contains mild explicit language in a few songs.

“Adam WarRock keeps his rhymes tight as he navigates his unique intellectual terrain. Hilariously inventive.” – Micheal Kupperman (TV Funhouse, McSweeney’s)
If you like hip hop and serious nerdy references (who doesn’t?), do not miss this album, and don’t be dismissive of it if you don’t really like hip hop music. Adam WarRock is one of those artists whose music is both fun and sincere whether you like the genre or not, and this album is a great introduction for first time listeners. Those who are already fans of WarRock will notice that this album has the same spirit and quality of his older music with a new spin here and there both in subject and technique.
