mc chris (always spelled in all lower case letters) is rapper from the Libertyville, Illinois, a suburb of

Chicago. He was one of the first rappers to focus solely on nerd life, rapping about Star Wars, Harry

Potter, ninjas and unrequited love, instead of the usual hip hop fare. He’s just as likely to make an

appearance at Comicon as he is at SXSW.

songwriter and animator for Sealab 2021, The Brak Show, Space Ghost Coast to Coast and Aqua Teen

Hunger Force. He has voiced characters on several Adult Swim pilots such as Welcome to Eltingville,

Cheyenne Cinnamon, Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell and Tight Bros. He was also a producer of on air

content for over a year before leaving Williams Street to pursue a career in music.

like Pinback and Reggie and the Full Effect. He’s collaborated with Talib Kweli, Andrew WK, Cee-Lo and

Childish Gambino. His music has been featured in Kevin Smith’s Zak and Miri Make a Porno, Jay and

Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie and he has composed several themes for Smith’s Smodcast

podcast network. mc’s song “hoodie ninja” was featured in both a Honda commercial and America’s

Funniest Home Videos. Other songs have been featured in Comedy Central’s Broad City and Fox’s So You

Think You Can Dance? mc most recently started in the pilot Bunny and Frog for Disney and a national

commercial for Fiat.

raised over $150,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through eBay sales and donations collected at

presentation with the animation company Titmouse Inc. mc is currently shopping the project.
