Rapping geek’s? Come quickly Lord Jesus and put a stop to this…
AUSTIN, Texas — Nerdcore rapper wannabes, take notice. Damian Hess, better known among fans of the nerdy hip-hop subgenre as MC Frontalot, is here to school you.
The master MC (pictured above) was hanging out in Austin for South by Southwest to promote the release of Nerdcore Rising, a documentary following the godfather of the genre on his first national tour. Hess, who began rapping with friends during college, recorded his first songs as MC Frontalot nearly a decade ago.
“I called it nerdcore because I was performing for an audience of Boba Fett action figures,” said Hess over dinner in Austin. “And I thought, how nerdy is this?”
