Jason Chu raps about his love of comics in inspirational 'Marvels'

Rapper Jason Chu has released the video for "Marvels," his new song about his childhood love of superhero comics, his gradual disillusionment with them, and his eventual rediscovery as an adult.

"I started reading comics because they looked tight," Chu says, "stopped believing in them because of real life. Picked them up again because I chose to believe, the world could be more than what I see around me."

Directed Jason Poon, the video stars Fresh Off the Boat actor Hudson Yang as young Chu. The lyrics and MP3 download can be found at Bandcamp.
