Cobra Can’t Shoot But They Sure Can Rap!

By James Robert Shaw (The Wind up Geek)


Ever heard of Wordburglar? Well you should. Or at least all of Geek society will now after watching this cool music video dedicated to the big boys in blue, Cobra. Sure this evil organization had some rough times against G.I. Joe led by Michael Bell (Duke) in the original animated series, or by a muscle bound Dwayne Johnson (Roadblock) in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, but you can bet your Mauler tank they know how to unwind.

If you listen carefully to the lyrics you’ll notice much of Wordburglar’s influence for this song came not from the Sunbow animated series but from Marvel Comics’ original 155 issue run (1982 – 1994).

Wordburglar is a Canadian rapper out of Halifax, Nova Scotia which has previously given to the world another rap artist called Classified. Classified’s hits include 5th Element and No Mistakes.

Rap Viper is available on Wordburglar’s Welcome To Cobra Island (2013) album.
