I Genuinely Love That There’s a Rap Version of The Hobbit‘s “Misty Mountains” Song


Look, I can get as sick as you of people in fake-looking wigs trying to be “funny” versions of popular nerd-beloved characters. Probably sicker, since people send them to me all the time. But I’m truly happy for this Warp Zone Hobbit video, because…

(a) “Misty Mountains” is a good tune, and deserves to be sampled in hip-hop.

(b) Very few self-respecting rappers are going to bolster their cred with Hobbits.

The lyrics are amusing, but this is one spoof where I could actually just listen to the song for fun too.
