"DRAGON BLOOD," the new single from nerdcore rapper, MC LARS is out exclusively today via NERDIST.com.

"Daenerys Targaryen is such an amazing character to me. She's a boss," MC LARS says.
Based on HBO's popular series GAME OF THRONES, the song is inspired by the regal character Daenarys Targaryen (played by actress Emilia Clarke) who is adamant in establishing her reign via the help of her small cluster of dragons.
"We live in an age of changing spheres of power and Daenarys reflects this for sure," he explains. "This is my first song ever written from an entirely female voice and I wanted to channel someone with whom people can identify, so I rewatched all of the episodes to date and went deep into any online Thrones resources I could find. I made spreadsheets of all of Martin's rhyming terminology, spending a whole week looking for words that would sound good together and matching them in Excel ('Tyrion / High Valyrian' for example). I never thought I could reference Cersei Lannister, Migos, Kanye West and Rage Against the Machine all in the same song, but I guess crazier things have happened in hip-hop!"
"Dragon Blood" is the first song and video released from MC LARS' upcoming album (to be released later in 2015; more details soon) and the video was executive produced by Adam F. Goldberg, the creator and show-runner for the ABC comedy "The Goldbergs."
