Musical Advent – 22nd December

Almost there and now we have the grandfather of nerdcore, MC Frontalot and many consider him to be the first nerdcore artist, but he acknowledges that others came before him and that they are his peers.

He has been performing nerdcore since 2000 and has seen the scene grow into the niche of a niche of a niche that it is today.

In 2002 Penny Arcade names him their rapper laureate which lead him to record the Penny Arcade Theme.

This song, is a collaboration between MC Frontalot, MC Hawking and Jessie Dangerously and is from his debut studio album Nerdcore Rising.

This song is about how awesome nerdcore is and what a threat it poses to gangsta rap!


Musical Advent – 19th December

Today is Star Wars day for me Lindsay and Megan, and had I thought it through, I would have saved the song from the 12th for today!

So I have had to change plans to bring in another Star Wars piece, and it’s once again nerdcore this time by mc chris, a rapper who spent a long time trying to maintain he wasn’t a nerdcore rapper when he clearly was a nerdcore rapper.

Anyway he had made peace with the nerdcore community now after a few years of bad blood, not that nerdcore rap rivalries are dangerous like those of gangsta rap!

This song is called Fett’s Vette and is about, well you guessed right Boba Fett, and is from mc chris’s first album Life’s a Bitch and I’m Her Pimp and was featured in the Kevin Smith film, Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

Today we delve back into the world of nerdcore to bring you a song by Raheem Jarbo more commonly known by his stage name Mega Ran, although he was originally called Random.

This song, Splash Woman comes from his 2009 album Mega Ran 9 which is based on Mega Man 9 and was released with the blessing of Capcom.

Mega Ran used to be a teacher before he dedicated himself full time to nerdcore and hasn’t looked back since, but he still talks about the transformative benefit of education through his music.

This song has even been featured on TNA wrestling, so that’s cool.


Musical Advent – 9th December

Graham and Chris will love this one, it’s a track by Ken Lawrence in his nerdcore (that is nerd rap) persona, MC Hawking. The Mills boys couldn’t believe that nerdcore was even a thing, and Graham is a big fan of gangsta rap so I think he will dig this song.

MC Hawking is basically Stephen Hawking as a gangsta rapper, and was in fact quite enjoyed by the great man himself, and he even got Ken to perform a new song live for him, Richard Dawkins and Brian May.

This song is very funny, it’s All My Shootings Be Drivebys, and makes me laugh a lot, in fact the whole album, A Brief History of Rhyme, should be required listening for any nerd!
