mc chris - Emo's Lounge - October 13, 2006

Exciting! The nerd in me is in full force today. Let me proceed to edumacate ya'll suckas on the fine history of Nerdcore hip hop. Nerdcore hip hop is a fusion of nerd/geek (that's me!) themes with that of hip hop. Here is a great article of Nerdcore: Rap Marketing Comes to Nerdcore at Wired. Also study up on your Nerdcore at Wikipedia. The genre is very light hearted focusing many times on themes such Star Wars, computer programming (that's me!), etc... You have great artists like mc chris, MC Frontalot, ytcracker, and MC Plus+ to name a few. So study up on your Nerdcore! Maybe it'll compel you to pull out your light sabres and pull a drive-by. ;)
Disclaimer: Austin Hip-Hop Scene does not condone pulling drive-bys with light sabres.

So now that you know about Nerdcore... mc chris is hitting Emo's Lounge on Oct 13th.

See ya'll tonight at the Planet Rock Party!

More info:

Chris Ward IV (born September 2, 1975), otherwise known as mc chris (always free from punctuation and capitalization), is a voice actor, rapper and improvisational comedian born in Libertyville, Illinois. He is currently signed on the indie label jet pack industries and also signed with the record label DC Flag Records. His trademarks include the synthesis of his "geek" heritage with the "gangster" image associated with hip hop artists, and the high pitch of his voice, celebrated in his 2003 song "10 Year Old" (likening his voice to a child of ten years age).
