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.

It gave me more then a couple laughs.
22 July 2010 | by Healing_ProcessSee all my reviews

The movie was great to me. Nerdcore rising tries to thrust the watcher into a very in-depth description of nerdcore hip-hop while following a nerdcore group around fronted by MC frontalot. The movie also interview other people like Producers,musicians,nerds and non nerds on how they react or think on the sub genre and the nerd community. I laughed multiple times seeing how nerdy some of these people really are and how brutally honest the people in the movie being interviewed was about nerds and peoples opinion on them and "their" music. If you want to watch a random documentary that isn't too long,boring, and not fully compressed with statistics you should watch this movie. Who knows you might even like nerdcore hip-hop. But Also I am a nerd. :P So If you are even a tad nerdy I would recommend watching this.
