Not too many MCs follow the MC appellation with something so simple, but then not too many MCs sound like they spend their days submerged in a helium tank. MC Chris is somewhat of an enigma.
MC Chris, aka Christopher Ward, is as much comedy as he is hip-hop. His high voice, alt-aesthetic and high intellect have made him a valuable commodity outside of his hip-hop following. Film director Kevin Smith featured an MC Chris song in Zack and Miri Make a Porno and the MC wrote the theme song for Smith's popular podcast, the SModcast.
MC Chris is also a favorite with Adult Swim fans. He voiced Aqua Teen Hunger Force character MC Pee Pants, as well as the acerbic, self-unaware Hesh Hepplewhite on Sealab 2021. MC Chris is letting his geek flag fly and touring behind his seventh release, Race Wars (Sept. 2011, self-released). Check out "Jelly Inside."
