It’s time for a mid-week dance party, don’t forget your umbrella! A group of nerdcore rap artists have teamed up to pay Netflix The Umbrella Academy his musical due, highlighting some of the show’s biggest moments (so far) while warming us up for season three.
LEX the Lexicon Artist has released a music video for “The Umbrella Academy Cypher, âwhere they and seven other nerdcore artists play as the Hargreeves of Netflix’s superhero saga. LEX stars as Vanya, played in the series by Elliot Page, alongside artists Beefy as Luther, Crossover as Diego, Prowess the Testament as Allison, Schaffer the Darklord as Klaus, Freeced as Five, Super Smack as Ben and MC Frontalot like Reginald. You can watch the clip below, in that artists do their thing alongside key moments in the series. I think my favorite verse is Reginald’s, mainly because I like to listen to a grumpy old dude get upset.
The Umbrella Academy the second season started last summer. While this is a bit of a mixed bag, largely because it stuck in the 1960s for so long, the season ended on that fantastic ‘Sparrow Academy’ cliffhanger which is bound to mean big things to the future of the series. Unfortunately, even though the series was renewed for season three in January, it will be a little while before we see the return of the series. Star Tom Hopper, who plays Luther, previously shared that the shooting of the third season has been delayed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Hollywood reopens, but no word on how long it will take to see the Hargreeves again. The first two seasons of The Umbrella Academy are available to watch on Netflix.
