Fans of Timothy Zahn's Star Wars: Heir to the Empire trilogy will undoubtedly know about Grand Admiral Thrawn, the master tactician who worked to restore the Empire following its defeat at Endor. Geek rapper Adam Warrock has put together a fantastic tribute with his song 'Thrawn',
Here’s what Warrock had to say about it:
I don’t know why I got in a conversation with someone lately about Timothy Zahn’s amazing Heir to the Empire trilogy of novels, so if you haven’t read them yet, then go read them. They are incredible. If you haven’t read them, then this song may not make much sense. Soooo. Yeah.
We’ll second his recommendation to pick up Zahn’s novels: they’re some of the best stories that you can read out of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, and the main villain of the series, Grand Admiral Thrawn is a fantastic one, a master tactician that has really does put together a plan that never fails. Warrock’s song about the Chiss Imperial is just flat out awesome, and dare we say, artistically done.

If Thrawn is not your thing, but you like what you’re hearing and you’re a Marvel fan, Warrock is doing a series of songs based on his favorite books and characters from the Marvel Universe, including Hawkeye, Thor, and the Hulk, with more to come!
Oh, and don’t forget his Game of Thrones and Parks and Recreation series of songs…
