Sales of new Chrono Trigger nerdcore album go to charity

Last year, I discovered a nerdcore rapper by the name of Richie Branson, who laid verses atop anime tracks from Cowboy Bebop, Gurren Lagann, and more. He was also a very vocal proponent of bringing Toonami back onto Cartoon Network, and you might have actually heard his music during a few Adult Swim bumps. And you know me -- I dig this kind of stuff.

The self-styled "Otaku King," who has made no secret of his love for the classic Squaresoft years, recently released a Chrono Trigger tribute entitled From Guardia With Love. The seven-track album can be purchased from Bandcamp for $6.97 or from iTunes for $6.93.

The cool part about this story is that Richie will donate 100% of his earnings to the Extra Life charity group. Even if you aren't a big nerdcore fan -- and over the past few years, plenty of you made that extremely clear to me -- you gotta agree that this is a pretty solid move on his part. But if Chrono Trigger raps do strike your fancy, by all means, enjoy to the fullest!
