If you’re not familiar, “nerdcore” or “geeksta” rap is a unique form of hip hop that is produced by and for geeks and nerds. The fan base is small because nerdcore caters to aÂ very limited audience.Â Non-nerds might not get the jokes, or understand some of the lyrics.
Popular nerdcore artists include Frontalot, MC Chris, Monzy, ytCracker, MC:NP. MC Plus+, and many others.Â Monzy and MCPlus+ even have an East Coast/West Coast nerdcore rivalry going on, as evidenced by Monzy’s track “So Much Drama in the PhD“.Â

The lyrics are clever and oh-so-geeky, butÂ hip hopÂ isn’t my cup of tea.Â Nevertheless, I’m sure some of you will enjoy it. 🙂
