About MC chris
from Libertyville, Illinois, Christopher Brendan Ward would spend his formative years between the School of the Art Institute
of Chicago and the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. Chris developed a love for all things music, from creating to producing,
and from a young age and pushed his career in the direction of media and music. An avid subscriber to traditional nerd culture,
Chris would become an instant hot ticket during the 'nerdification' of America as the nerd label moved from pejorative to
complimentary. Combining his unadulterated musical talent with his penchant for animation, Christopher would dawn the moniker
of MC chris and soon become an icon of the modern nerdcore movement.
Ward's earliest contributions came on the critically
acclaimed Cartoon Network late night comedy block Adult Swim, where he got his first break writing and voice acting on the
cult hit Aqua Teen Hunger Force, where he starred as the recurring character MC Pee Pants. He would be a frequent contributor
to the Aqua Teen Hunger Force scene, appearing in both the feature film and video game adaptation for the series. Established
as a capable voice actor, writer, and musician, Chris lent his talents to some of the biggest animation phenomenons the 2000s
had to offer, including Sealab 2021, The Brak Show, Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, and Welcome to Eltingville.
Chris decided to more heavily pursue his career in music, leaving Cartoon Network and embarking on his musical career alongside
rock group The Lee Majors. His early work had a tumultuous relationship with the nerdcore hip hop movement, with MC chris
shunning the genre despite his fanbase frequently spilling over into the heart of nerdcore fandom. Since 2001, MC chris has
self released released more than half a dozen studio albums and five EPs, and penned theme songs for various animated cartoons
including cult animated TV show Jay & Silent Bob Get Old. A fiercely independent musician, Chris has eschewed record labels
in favor of self releasing all of his original material, leaving his work unhindered by commercial or outside interests.
The MC chris album debut would drop in 2001, titled Life's a Bitch and I'm Her Pimp. With Star
Wars' Boba Fett on the album cover and an interesting title, the album would be a testament to the nerdcore hip hop fusion
sound that Chris would pioneer. The album featured both songs and comedy skits, with the single "Fett's Vette" being featured
in Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Under the production tutelage of John Fewell, the album would lay the formidable
groundwork for Chris' future recording career.
Chris' 2010 release, mc chris Goes To Hell, would continue Chris' signature
underground nerdcore style as the culminating point of three previously released EPs. Chris would perform much of the material
live at the Comix comedy club, the inaugural event for the album's release which featured the comedic genius skits "Sam-E"
and "Race Wars". On top of crowd favorites "Bossk on a Segway" and "Awesome Fucker", the album also featured another Star
Wars based single, "IG-88's '57 Chevy".
MC chris' album have a recurring motif featuring bounty
hunters from the Star Wars universe. Starting with a song featuring Boba Fett, Chris has also alluded to other characters
Zuckuss, Dengar, IG-88, and Bossk.
Chris has collaborated extensively with fellow Star Wars lover and tangentially related
nerdcorist Kevin Smith. Kevin Smith has directed a multitude of cult classic films, many of which mirror MC chris' work with
frequent Star Wars references. You may also know Kevin Smith by his recurring character and alter ego, Silent Bob.
