Is it any surprise that one of the best artists on the nerdcore scene regularly works for the Cartoon Network? Nothing like a little Aqua Teen Hunger Force all up in your badass mother f_ckin’ beats.
MC Chris somehow pulls off a mash-up of: 1) hardcore hip-hop image, 2) high-pitched vocals, and 3) geek credentials. Think Nas on helium, with a few extra Boba Fett references. He’s prolific too.

With titillating tracks more infectious than a Sub7 Trojan horse, this most “awesomest beat smith” and avid dictionary/thesaurus user is best known as MC Frontalot’s righteous remixer.

Move aside Lara Croft and Bastila Shan, the new goddess of Nerds has hacked your throne and claimed the universe with your gibs still hanging off her light saber. If the name evokes mega pixilated naughty nurse thoughts in your virtual memory, then you’ve uploaded correctly.

This accordion junkie and satirist prodigy with ringlets ‘straight outta Lynwood’ is best known for his farcical songs that deconstruct pop culture often lampooning the too-earnest tracks of his contemporaries.
This caricaturing National Forensic League Scholar has sold more than 12 million albums, blasting every other comedy act in history out of orbit! He’s recorded more than 150 parody and original songs and has performed more than 1,000 live shows.

If you want to stay out of Nerdcore Hip Hop, steer your clear of being one of MC Plus’s professors. A harmless computer science lesson could turn into the beginning of your demise as Plus will diss your syllabus into a potentially damning hip hop anthem. This Iranian-American automatic code parallelization programmer (say that 15 times fast!) began his Nerdcore career as Sir Code-A-Lot but pulled an Optimus Prime andtransformed himself into MC Plus+ after beginning to recording professionally.
