MC Frontalot (previously) is one of the OGs of nerdcore hiphop, bringing out huge crowds of fans for his music all over the world (I once caught him doing a show in North London at which a young man showed up in full Frontalot cosplay; I've also seen him perform for packed houses at Defcon).
His work has always satirized the worst of the internet while celebrating its best and weirdest corners. But with Net Split or, the Fathomless Heartbreak of Online Itself (streaming now, on sale in December), Frontalot confronts the horror of the 2018 internet, from the opening track ("Internet Sucks") and all the way through, with tracks like "Memes are Stupid," "Never Read the Comments," and "Datin Profile."
As always, Frontalot's jokes are always ha-ha-only-serious, part laugh and part howl, with funky beats and unmatchable delivery.
