Rapper, producer, actor and filmmaker RZA brings back his alter ego, Bobby Digital, once again for a brand new graphic novel and soundtrack, “RZA Presents: Bobby Digital and The Pit of Snakes,” both to be released on July 22.
The first single, “We Push,” by Bobby Digital featuring Stone Mecca, is out now, and was co-produced by RZA and Stone Mecca. Watch the visualizer, featuring artwork from the graphic novel, below.
The 8-song, sweeping soundtrack will be released via 36 Chambers ALC/MRNK and merges Hip-Hop, Indie Rock and Soul to complement and highlight the storyline of the graphic novel, written by RZA, Vasilis Lolos, and Ryan O’Sullivan. Lolos, who also illustrated the graphic novel, created the soundtrack cover art.
RZA says, “The character Bobby Digital getting his first official first graphic novel is a long-overdue achievement. Growing up as an avid comic reader, it’s an honor to add my creativity to this amazing platform of storytelling. Z2 Comics understands that music artists resonate in the comic book/graphic novel world and this relationship is destined to grow.”
