Saw this on featured on TOKYOPOP a few days ago...definitely interesting anime-inspired hip-hop to say the least. It really brought back those Toonami memories. Gotta love nostalgia.

Apparently the artist is working on a full hip-hop album based on Gundam Wing:

IDK if anyone is following him, but Richie has been killing it lately with these tracks. Like, he's legitimately really good, not just some wannabe kid on Youtube making gimmicky tracks in his basement.

His Wing Zero EP was fantastic and he's been releasing new tracks every Tuesday for the past few weeks that have been awesome as well. He's done a Cowboy Bebop song, an Initial D song, and just released a Gurren Lagann track earlier today (probably my favorite of the bunch).

Definitely check this guy out, especially if you're into hip hop. At the very least, he's way better than most of the mainstream hip hop you hear on the radio, so it's worth a listen.

Thank you guys for checking my music out! Whether you love it or hate it, I'm truly grateful!

Now that Toonami's back (I'm still humbled that Adult Swim used one of my songs for the intro), perhaps they'll air Gundam Wing sometime in the future for nostalgia's sake?

I personally love Richie Branson's stuff, guys a pretty cool character. And his music is addictive to listen to.
