The Daily Hotness: Cowboy Bebop hip hop

Nerdcore rapper Richie Branson has a project called OtakuTuesdays, in which he produces and releases a new rap based on a requested anime or manga. First up is “Space Cowboy Serenade,” using “The Real Folk Blues” from Cowboy Bebop as a backing track. I didn’t think I’d love it as much as I did, but I was floored. He’s also done raps based on Initial D and Gurren Lagann! (Row! Row! Fight da powaa!)

Today, Ryan Perez stuffs some “plaster cock” in your art hole, Maurice reviews the incredible (told ya) Awesomenauts, PAX Prime is out of passes, and Miyamoto says cute things the way only Miyamoto can.
