Wordburglar is a Canadian hip-hop artist who piqued my interest by claiming to be “a strong contender for the rapper most likely to be quoted at the water cooler” and after nodding my head along to his upcoming 3rd full length, ‘3RDBURGLAR’ I can’t disagree. It’s rare for hip-hop to stick in my head as easily as bubblegum pop, but Wordburglar does it with lyrics that are sharp, clever and most importantly, make you go oooh SNAP.
In anticipation of ‘3RDBURGLAR’ which drops on May 11, Wordburglar answered our ‘5 Questions’ and included the video for his single, ‘Rhyme O’Clock’ which is full of nerd swagger. Keep reading to see all his answers and watch a DJ driven Millennium Falcon, Robocop’s nemesis and more in the new video.
