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.

Nerdcore Rising
6 April 2008 | by GumWrapperSee all my reviews

Nerdcore Rising is a new documentary focusing on MC Frontalot's first tour. Nerdcore, for those who don't live on the internet, is an offshoot of hip hop that focuses on topics nerds enjoy. Collectable card games, video games, Star Wars, science and science fiction are all topics covered quickly (and apparently from a thesaurus) by MC Frontalot. Frontalot is widely considered the father of Nerdcore, and is the focus of the documentary. The movie is very enjoyable, mostly because MC Frontalot and his band mates are hilarious and fun to watch. The music is interesting, and not at all as gimmicky and worn out as it might seem from the description. The whole act could've come across as a silly novelty, but Frontalot very obviously takes it seriously, and produces interesting and quality music instead of some silly beat with Star Trek samples over it. I highly recommend the film if you are interested in Nerdcore or if you think the idea of it is interesting. I suppose the movie might be less interesting if you don't get at least some of the references or you don't find dorky humor entertaining, but it's enjoyable without catering just to nerds.
