Thundercat Relives a Hot Sauce Nightmare While Eating Spicy Wings | Hot Ones
Thundercat is a Grammy Award-winning musician, producer, singer, and songwriter. His latest album ‘It Is What It Is’ is available now, and features Steve Lacy, Childish Gambino, Ty Dolla Sign, Lil B, Kamasi Washington, and Zack Fox. How will this funk-jazz virtuoso handle the proggressive spice notes of the Hot Ones sauce lineup? Find out how this lover of anime fares against the wings of death while answering questions about defining his music style, the cartoons with the best theme songs, video game soundtracks, Marvel movies, his early bass-playing days with Suicidal Tendencies, his love of bowling, and the first time he met Sean in Los Angeles at The Comedy Store. Will Thundercat be able to play his way out of this ridiculously spicy gauntlet or is it the end of the world? It’s time to face the music and dance with the scovilles!

    Thundercat is not lying when he says 'Berserk'. That manga has influenced quite a bit in modern day media. From Dark Souls, BloodBorn, Cloud Strife, hell almost any character that wears black and has a HUGE sword; there are more that I don't even know of, but they were all influenced by the great Kentaro Miura's, 'Berserk'.

    Confess that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart the God raised him from the dead, and you will be saved. Repent of your sins. ("Repent" is Latin. It means "To Turn Away." Turn away from your sins, refuse to go back to who you once were.) Be baptized. (Be completely submerged under water) And the Holy Spirit will gift you. This is important, remember this, JESUS CHRIST LOVES YOU
