An Oral History of The Polar Bear MC’s aka Tha Killa Korpse Gangstaz
By Henry Johnson
Fifteen years is a long time for anything to last. A friendship, a job, love, most dog breeds… And it’s no different in the world of music. Some of the most famous, world renowned bands never made it close to fifteen years.
The Polar Bear MC’s aka Tha Killa Korpse Gangstaz (Jewish Dave, MC Randumb, D-Mize, Q, Mex 2 Da Bizzo, Rock & Roll Billy and Rubbz), an infamous Las Vegas based comedy-rap group didn’t either. Well, they sort of did if you count all of the many offshoots of the group that still live on… The group as a whole though only lasted a few years. But it was a wild few years, and it all started 15 years ago on September 22nd, 2002. Well, that’s not true actually… It all started on October 31st, 2001, but it seemed more appropriate to do this now, since it was the release date of their debut album, “I Hope U Melt” and their first live performance at the now defunct Maryland Parkway college bar The Rock (you’ll notice a trend of closed venues as the story continues).
FA-COCK-TA‘s second album is finally here! After 8 long years, everybody’s favorite rappin’ jews are back with a full album (well… 6 songs) of hilarious, ridiculous, yiddishy rap hits. The album is called U Tuchus 4 Granted because none of you motherfuckers bought our last album Loxstarz. Well some of you did… And if you loved Loxstarz, you’ll love it! Your bubby will love it too! Your Rabbi will… probably not love it! But get that album, leave us a review wherever you buy it, and bump that shit on every high holiday (and every shabbat in between)!
Right on the heels of D-Mize & Dee. Rockz’s 8 year hiatus (they just released their second album, Oh Geez!), FA-COCK-TA has finally made the time to come up with a new album! Well, a 6 song EP at least. While their full length follow-up to Loxstarz called U Tuchus 4 Granted may take another 8 years or so, 6 songs is better than none! And you can listen to the first song off the album RIGHT NOW! Check it out Bubbelahs!!! Here is “Breathe (The Tu B’Shevat Song)” just in time for the Jewish Holiday of Tu B’Shevat… a Holiday that celebrates trees!
