Storyline

Hilariously entertaining, NERDCORE RISING introduces a new wave of hip-hop to the world called "Nerdcore" where computer obsesses geeks bust rhymes about the hard knock life of nerdom. The gut-busting comedy follows MC Frontalot, the "Godfather of Nerdcore" on his first national tour where the roots of the genre, the dorky complexities of its artists, and one MC's fight for nerd stardom is revealed.

Quotes

Prince Paul: The whole Nerdcore thing, I think what's cool about that is, it's - whoever is doing it is actually being honest and quote-unquote "keeping it real" to themselves, so I mean you can't beat that. To me that's true hip-hop.

I Love Nerds!
5 November 2009 | by ktinsley-574-411560See all my reviews

Like I said, I love nerds. Nerd Core Rising, that is. This film is so funny and original that I could barely contain myself in the seat. It's funny because it's about a guy that is so clued in on a genre of music that is typically not listened to by people like him. He raps about the most random stuff, but relevant if your a fan of say, Magic the Gathering? I also liked that I got taken on this adventure and followed him on his second tour. I just love Mc Frontalots reactions when he finds out that he actually has fans and a female groupie. How cute! Also, The one and only true geek rapper himself, Weird Al gives some cool comments about the whole nerd core history. Anyway, check this film out. It is wildly entertaining and informative about a new culture of artist that are sure to rise up on us faster than those spell cards. Don't front, check out Nerd Core Rising!
