Schaffer loves cats. Unapologetically. Unironically. Unforgivingly. And whats not to love? Theyre fluffy little creatures providing warm meows when things get rough, and full-throated purrs when things are swimming along just fine in other words, they are the purrrrfect inspiration for writing raps (sorry, the pun had to happen, it just had to). But STD wasnt always the nerdy cat loving-rapper we know him to be oh no.
Before he was a Pollyanna rapper of feline utopia, Schaffer the Darklord was a hardcore noise metal junkie. In fact, he describes himself as a “Frankenstein-esque monster assembled from equal parts Prince, Ozzy Osbourne, Bill Hicks, and Darth Vader stitched together inside the shell of a jaded heavy metal ex-patriot.” If you appreciate any of those references, then this nerdcore rapper is for you!
Despite flair for the dorqué, he is betrothed to a fair lady. The kind of fair lady that has a PhD something he raps about with a bridegrooms adorable pride in songs like “Black Metal Queen” and “Nerd Lussst.”
He may not be available for matrimony but you could definitely stalk him he lives in Brooklyn, New York terrorize his every waking moment, and then haunt his dreams. Hes pretty used to this kind of terror as his one and only bandmate is a music making machine thingy he affectionately calls “The Devil.” And, if you wanna be extra crazy, you could stalk him while riding a specialized STD skateboard, which he sells on his website, of course.
