M.C. Chris is a rapper from 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. M.C. got his start as an animator on many of the shows you’ve see on Adult Swim. He was writer, actor, songwriter and lead animator for shows like 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.

M.C. has since released seventeen albums and has crossed America countless times, touring as a headliner as well as opening for bands like Pinback, Reggie and the Full Effect and Ninja Sex Party. He's collaborated with Talib Kweli, Andrew WK, Cee-Lo, Childish Gambino and Gwar. He’s performed at SXSW, PAX, Fun Fun Fest, Bamboozle, Warped Tour, GwarBQ, The Gathering, Comicon, Dragoncon and countless others conventions. 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. M.C.’s song “Hoodie Ninja" was featured in both a national 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?" M.C. most recently guest starred on a punk compilation album dedicated to Dr. Demento and made a cameo on Gwar’s latest album “The Blood of Gods.”

For the past two years, every album M.C. has released has charted in the top ten on Billboard. A new album is scheduled to be release sometime in 2018. M.C. lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three year old. 

Joing Chris on tour is Bitforce. Classic cartoons, video games, movies, and anime, nothing is off limits for the musical stylings of Bitforce. These 8-bitwarriors don light-up armor to use their music to go to war with a multiverse of villains, both well-known and original.
