Beat used: Jason Derulo “Trumpets”

First, if you haven’t heard Jason Derulo’s “Trumpets,” you should go listen to it. It’s an amazing and incredibly weird and silly song, and I love it. 

ALSO, ALL MY DIGITAL MUSIC STORE IS PAY WHAT YOU WANT UNTIL JAN. 1. THAT INCLUDES NOTHING! HALF OF ALL PROCEEDS RAISED FROM NOW UNTIL JAN. 1 WILL GO TO AutisticAdvocacy.Org AS A DONATION IN THE SPIRIT OF THE HOLIDAYS

It’s been another year of full-time music. What started out as a year where I was on tour for about five straight months supporting a new album, turned into me moving to Philadelphia, meeting my amazing girlfriend, being on television, and releasing a ton of music. Thank you to everyone who’s come to a show, listened to a track, bought an album, or supported this crazy dream of mine. I left my career job in June of 2010, and by the time next June comes around, it will have been five straight years of full-time music where I made it work. And though at times it’s been hard (ask Tribe One about sliding through intersections in the Minneapolis snow), I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

I’m honestly not sure about where the next year will take me or adamwarrock.com. I’m releasing an EP in January, doing a few shows here and there, and working on the next full release album. Other than that, I don’t really know. I don’t know how much longer this can keep going, as life and other things get in the way, become more important. I’ve started to think a lot about the future, and maybe finding a way to transition to a job that would involve the things I love the most about these past five years, while maybe making the things I don’t like (uncertain paycheck, insane travel) a little less prevalent. I’m fairly certain that I will always make music in some form or fashion, just like I did back in college when I was making joke songs or diss tracks for just my friends. But I’m not sure that Adam WarRock will always be here. Which isn’t to say I’m quitting anytime soon, just the end of the year requires people to take stock of their lives, the future, everything. It gets you thinking.

I wouldn’t have survived this past year without my friends, without music people like Mikal kHill and Tribe One who keep me sane, without my loved ones around me. As the holidays and the new year roll around, take a second and tell the people you love how much they mean to you, however you can. There’s been so much death, so much tragedy, so much awful shit in the news this year (I guess there is every year), but there continues to be amazing things happening every day in small and huge ways, that it’s easy to forget how good we have it, no matter how much we struggle. I know I struggle with seeing the bad over the good, and I work on it everyday.

My mission at this site is to basically make music that might make your day better. I do it weekly because I know I like new stuff. It’s all just background noise, and I hope it gets you through a drive, through your workday, through a rough time. Sometimes you need that. I’m not writing Shakespeare here. I’m incredibly thankful that anyone listens, and likes it. Thank you for spending a few minutes here and there in your daily Internet rush to pay attention to my songs.

With that, adamwarrock.com is going on hiatus until 2015. Hopefully, when I come back, I’ll have the first single off the new EP to debut for you, and another year of making some free music for your ears.

In the spirit of the holidays, all music at my digital store is pay what you want (including NOTHING) until January 1. No pressure to buy anything, but half of all proceeds raised from now until January 1 will go to Cure AutisticAdvocacy.Org as a donation. If you’d rather just directly donate, you can do it here: 

Other than that, have a great and safe holidays and a happy new year.

“JOHN BOYEGA” [new tunes]

Hey look, a new song for you. This isn’t really a song about The Force Awakens, or anything nerdy. I think the reason it’s been hard to make songs about nerdy stuff lately is that it seems like the real world news has been so crushingly depressing and bleak. It makes it hard to stomach people who have a problem that John Boyega is a stormtrooper because he’s black. I guess that’s the root of this song coming into being.

I’m still hard at work on my next EP, Gifted Student, produced by Mikal kHill. I’m hoping to release it in late January, so stay tuned. Some great guests and some amazing stuff.

I’ll be performing this Friday (December 12) at Fantom Comics in Washington, DC (The Dupont Circle location). More info here, but the show is gonna be a great way to close out an amazing year of performances. Come by and say hi!

“Spider-Gwen” [Rap-A-Thon Lookback]

Beat used: Big Cuz “Lose Control” 


The songs tagged “Rap-A-Thon Lookback” were made during the 24 Hour Rap-A-Thon on October 18. I made 18 songs in one day for charity. To see all 18 songs, go here

Edge of Spider-Verse Vol 1 2

 I fully intended to have a new song this week. But then I started working on my new EP (due out late January) in earnest, and well the week got away from me. But get excited for the EP (produced by Mikal kHill), it’s way different than the stuff I’ve released before, and I’d like to think it’s a bit of a return to some of the more indie-style hip hop that I used to make. kHill always brings the best out of me.

So enjoy this Spider-Gwen song from the Rap-A-Thon that was in October. Confession: I’ve never been a big Mary Jane fan. Gwen was more my favorite. Big ups to Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez on the new ongoing. Can’t wait to see what they do with it.

WASHINGTON, DC! – Come out and see me perform at the new Fantom Comics location in Dupont Circle, December 12! More info here. It’s the last WarRock show of the year, won’t you stop by and have some fun with me?

It’s weird to me that Parappa the Rapper still to this day, has such a hold on geek consciousness. I don’t even remember if the game was any good. People have reported mixed feelings on the subject. Regardless of the quality of the game, I do remember playing it and thinking it was the greatest thing of all time. I played it every day and was obsessed with it. To this day I can still rap almost every song in the damn game.

This was the first song I made in the Rap-A-Thon, and I won’t lie. I had the idea for a Parappa song for…well, years. So I figured I’d tackle it to start the writing juices flowing. I’m pretty pleased with it.

LAST TWO SHOWS OF THE YEAR!

SATURDAY – Drawncon – Westford MA (info)
DEC 13 – Fantom Comics – Washington, DC (info)
