OK, you've got to be wondering: who exactly is MC Lars? Well MC Lars is definitley one of the freshest new artists you're going to hear this year. In fact, he's Hurricane Fresh. Using beats he made on his laptop and various instruments he had lying around, MC Lars has crafted one of the most clever and original recordings I've heard in a long time. He drops more pop culture references than a month of VH1's "Best Week Ever" and anyone who can incorporate Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" with the Brand New song "Okay I Believe You But My Tommy Gun Don't" is nothing short of a genius. The rhymes on every song are extremely tight and there is nothing elementary about anything here. Lars has what most MCs out there now lack: brains. You'll listen to some lines over and over just to grasp the full hilarity of them. The highlight for me is the sublime "Signing Emo" which chronicles the rise and fall of fictional emo band Hearts That Hate, complete with a chorus by said band that is rife with more emo cliches than the entire Drive-Thru Records catalog. I almost split a gut the first time I heard it. Trust me on this, if you enjoy anything about music and can appreciate a rhyme of any kind you will not be dissapointed. The only downside here is that there are only seven songs, but since there is no filler, it's worth the price.
Who's house? Raven's House!

MC Lars does it again. This CD includes the great remake of the poem The Raven, his style of Hip-Hop and Rock will surely make him one of the bestselling artists out there. The CD also includes hits such as "iGeneration" and "Signing Emo".
This CD will defenetly be worth the money.

When I first heard MC Lars at a special concert in Oxford, England, I was practically rolling on the floor in laughter. MC is a pretty good rapper, but his writing skills are what make him excellent. As a former Oxford student, and current Stanford student, MC is super smart, and that shows through in the songs. Take Rapbeth for instance; it's a rap about the three witches from Macbeth. Another great song is Signing Emo, following the career of an emo band brought into existence simply because they were emo, and emo is hot right now. The songs are all really catchy! They're super funny, and well worth my $7.99.

Lars has a new album coming out soon, and he recently put all the MP3s from his first release under his current specific moniker up on his website for download. So uh, I downloaded them. It's a seven-song EP, although two also appear on The Graduate. They mark a big step in production value from Radio Pet Fencing, and the starting point for the repertoire he uses now when performing live. There's some solid beats and catchy choruses to be found, and some interesting sampling and experimenting with other genres. I have to appreciate a rapper who will do a track about Edgar Allen Poe in front of a guitar riff from a Brand New song. "Signing Emo" is probably one of his most popular songs, and has some clever lyrics along with a chorus from a fake punk band that managed to fool some people into trying to book them. "iGeneration" and "Hurricane Fresh" are also both songs sampling rock bands that are popular live. "Stat-60" is less commonly heard but gives Lars definite nerd cred for rhyming about math class, and "Straight Outta Stockholm" is a self-aggrandizing rap but with a nice sound to it, encapsulating well Lars' attitude and outlook. The Laptop EP is a really quick and enjoyable lesson, and there's no reason not to listen when he's giving it to you for free.

Whether you call it post-punk-laptop-rap or just plain good, MC Lars is the most underrated rapper out there, and probably the most original. In probably his first major EP, MC Lars lays it out on the table in all his geeky/fun glory. Since it's independently produced, it is a bit rough and sounds like a demo. "iGeneration" and "Signing Emo" are later found on his semi-major label debut, and they mostly sound the same. Songs like "Hurricane Fresh," "UK Vise Versa" and "Straight Outta Stockholm" are great indie rap, and entertaining to boot. "Mr. Raven" on the other hand is not only great indie rap, but an excellent rap track period. Dare I say it's MC Lars' best? Perfectly incorporating Edgar Allen Poe's famous poem, it kicks the beats, brings the cool, and MC Lars lays it down, scaring the crap out of all comers. Overall, while the project isn't MC Lars' overall strongest, it does contain some great tracks. So if you haven't the Lars, then lay down your cash for The Laptop EP, which is slightly less expensive then a laptop.
