Hand’Solo Records releases third Grandpa Funnybook’s Mixtape


Officially titled Grandpa Funnybook’s Mix-Tapingly Arranged Rapping Song Album 3!, this is the latest release from Hand’Solo Records.

Three years ago Hand’Solo Records partnered with Wordburglar to release a mixtape celebrating our attendance at Toronto’s Fan Expo convention, and the tradition continues as Grandpa Funnybook’s Mix-Tapingly Arranged Rapping Song Album returns for a third volume. In keeping with the themes of Fan Expo, the subject matter of GF3 is heavily weighted towards sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Wordburglar presents a couple of songs from his just released concept album Welcome to Cobra Island, More Or Les debuts the title track to his upcoming Dr Who mixtape, and Adam WarRock offers up an exclusive track about Loki (the one from the Marvel Universe), amongst many other nerdy rap tracks also featuring the likes of Random (aka Mega Ran), Ghettosocks, Beefy, Jesse Dangerously, Kabuto the Python, Fresh Kils, Dual Core and more. Hosted by comic book legend Grandpa Funnybook, creator of all your favourite Special Characters, and mixed by Peter Project, winner of Toronto’s first Sound Battle Royale in 2010, GF3 also features vibrant cover art by comic book artist Dave Howlett (Scenester, Slam-A-Rama). Nerds, rejoice!
