Richie Branson Celebrates Chrono Trigger Anniversary With a New Rap

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Three free tracks, album on the way

Last summer we directed you to a music track from rapper Richie Branson, called Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, which combined rap with enough game references to satisfy almost anyone. He's now returning with a new album that's focused on SNES classic Chrono Trigger, and to celebrate the 18th Anniversary since its arrival on 11th March 1995 he's released a song from the album on YouTube, while making three tracks in total available for free.

The first single's YouTube video is below — Bring Back Chrono (All I Had) — with classic game footage and a message that, ultimately, serves as a dedication to the game and a hope for the series to make a full return.

The album will be called From Guardia With Love and will apparently be available to buy in the next few weeks; details and a free download of three tracks — including this single — can be found on the album's official web page. Please be warned that while the lead single is clean, the additional two tracks in the free download include some bad language.

So, what do you think of this latest game-themed rap from Richie Branson?

Well... I'm MadAussie and I gotta say
Chrono was cool kinda like Final Fantasy
But at the end of the day there was always somethin' better
Like women, Jack Daniels, beer and makin' stacks of cheddar
Yeah I have finished the above and I thought that they were dope
But in the end I had to give up sorta like the pope
As I told yer lot before the Megadrive was where I sway
I used to pound that mofo like every bloody day
See there was a massive difference in the stuff I always plays
We had Sonic, Chakan, lots of blood and better movie games
So what it all boils down to and this ya gotta hear
As I spear ya'll in the chest get the eff on over here
Cause what I have to does is smash this poop up in yer ear
Lotta love for the old-school while I drill those heads and holler
My favourite RPG has to go to Pier Solar

I can't say that I care for rap, but this is honestly pretty good. Unfortunately, its only a matter of time before the tyrant that is square enix demands that Branson cease and desist for copyright infringement, or infringing a license that they literally could not care less about anymore.
