Known as “Final Boss of Nerdcore Hip Hop,” MC Frontalot has been treating hip hop fans and nerds around the globe to his unique brand of rap music.
“What the hell is ‘Nerdcore’,” you ask?
Well, think Kool Keith…if he was white…and rapped about videogames, RPGs, binary code, computers and other stuff that appeals to the G4tv audience.
You may also know him from his appearance in the documentary Nerdcore Rising: The Movie, his annual performances at webcomic Penny Arcade's annual Expo, his influential debut CD Nerdcore Rising, or from his cameos in The Walking Dead comics (illustrator Tony Moore is a big fan). He also has a brand new album out, Secrets from the Future, that is getting rave reviews.
MC Frontalot was kind enough to stop by The Engine Room Studios in Hollywood to spit over a sinister Messiaz beat. His interview about his status (or lack thereof!) in the Bay Area and New York hip hop scenes is hilarious, his attire priceless, and his rhymes unreal, making this a very special Freestyle 101. Enjoy!
