Almost 20 years ago, Nerdcore arrived on the world hip-hop scene, a genre featuring a parade of quirky emcees mixing impressive beats and flow with lyrics dedicated to all things geeky. MC Chris has spent a decade as one of Nerdcore’s premier artists. With edgy verses dedicated to everything from Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett to Ghostbusters, MC Chris used his unique vocal pitch and expert flow to gather a cult following, especially in the Azalea City.
Dual Core will perpetuate the evening’s nerdy ambiance. This project features the combined efforts of rapper Int Eighty and producer C64, who met, appropriately, in an online music forum. This duo is well-known in the gaming community for creating adrenalized, roughneck anthems dedicated to such video games as “Counter Strike” and “Watch Dogs 2.”
Lex the Lexicon Artist will bring innovative Nerdcore anthems from the West Coast. Lex’s “frank storytelling, sharp commentary,and a comically huge ego” is a winning combination. Her skill with intricate, rapidfire lyrical delivery is on par with the most seasoned verbal assassins.
